What if God and light are the same? That’s the intriguing question raised by Alabama doctor T. Lee Baumann, in his book published last year by the Association for Research and Enlightenment.
Barbara Hall, creator of the hit CBS television series “Joan of Arcadia,” said she based the premise of her show partly on Baumann’s theory.
Gregg Garrison interviewed Baumann for his story for the Religion News Service, which appeared in today’s Washington Post. More from Baumann:
- Every major religious text in the world describes God in terms of light.
Einstein in his theory of relativity says that time stops at light speed. In a sense, light can be everywhere in the universe at once. Like God.
If time doesn’t exist for light waves, then light can be in the past, present, and future simultaneously, another characteristic of God.
Light is conscious. Light alters its behavior in ways that cannot otherwise be explained.
I just ordered this book from amazon.com: it’s a must-read.
