In God and Cosmic Rays We Trust

December 15th, 2020

In the early years of the 20th century, radioactivity was discovered, astronomers began to define the true scale and nature of the universe, and another mystery sprung out of scientific circles: the origin of a newly detected form of energy from outer space, known as cosmic rays.

Their discovery was like opening a door to the mysteries of creation, while posing questions that, if they could be answered, might explain nearly everything—or reveal God’s plans, depending on your spiritual beliefs.

William Leonard Laurence was the first full-time American science journalist, and these rays lead a story about the first scientific proof of the existence of God. Quite a controversy!
