I enjoy science and write about how it may affect people’s lives.  On the other hand, I am a religious man as well.  I feel however that science will help us to eventually understand religion better and if science appears to contradict religion, we have either misinterpreted the scriptures (and there is a lot of that), or our science hasn’t advanced enough.
            For instance, I have heard some express the idea that our Heavenly Father can’t hear or answer everybody’s prayers.  I don’t know about the answering part, but as far as hearing everyone’s prayers, consider this.  Time and speed are relative.  Scientists have demonstrated and proven that multiple times.  The more speed you have the slower time moves.  Once you reach the speed of light then time stops. 
            What isn’t commonly discussed is what happens if you go faster than the speed of light.  To my understanding most physicists believe it is possible to go faster than the speed of light.  If our Heavenly Father can go faster than the speed of light, then time is irrelevant.  If time means nothing then he can hear everyone’s prayer at one time.  He will also be able to see the past, present and future at the same time. 
            Think about that and make a comment.
