Does Einstein's Theory of Relativity Point to God?

It’s been over 100 years since Albert Einstein published his theory of relativity, completely altering our understanding of physics. It’s based on the idea that light, and specifically the speed of light, is the only “constant” in the universe. Everything else is relative. In this video we want to help people understand Einstein’s theory, and then ask a very interesting question: Does Einstein’s Theory of Relativity Point to God?

The video begins by introducing Einstein’s famous equation, E=mc2, which means “Energy equals mass times the speed of light squared.” The speed of light squared is a really big number, so Einstein determined that an enormous amount of energy could be unlocked from a very small amount of matter. And he was right. Splitting an atom creates a huge explosion in a process called nuclear fission, which led to the invention of the atomic bomb that ended World War II. It is also used in nuclear power plants to create energy today.

The video then uses several animated examples to illustrate the concept of the speed of light. has several animated examples to illustrate the concept of the speed of light. According to Einstein’s theory, the speed of light is the same for all observers, regardless of the speed of the source. This has astonishing implications—including altering time itself.

Finally, the video concludes by highlighting three fundamental concepts within the theory of relativity that point to God by comparing theoretical facts about traveling at the speed of light with God’s characteristics.
