Physics is the science of matter and energy and of interactions between the two. While at first this may look simple, the interactions between matter and energy are not always simple. This is compounded by the fact that matter and energy have been shown to be manifestations of the same thing, and that they affect both space and time.
To a large degree physics deals with the details of how the universe works. For example quantum physics shows the universe to be indeterminate at its most fundamental level, which is consistent with the Biblical idea that God controls and sustains the universe. In fact indeterminacy at a fundamental level is actually predicted by the idea of a universe controlled and sustained by God.
In general creationists have little if any disagreement with major theories of physics, however there is disagreement on their application to origins. Physics has proven quite useful in creation science. In recent years there has been great success in applying physics to creation cosmologies and flood geology.
- Main Article: Standard Model theory
The Standard Model of particle physics is the current leading scientific theory used to explain, based on indirect observation, what matter is made of and by some experimentation, how it interacts through symmetrical relationships in terms of formation, destruction and collisions.
