The Science Behind the Holy Ghost

Woman Prays

Earlier this month Greg Trimble posted to his blog, “The Science Behind Feeling the Holy Ghost.” His post is beginning to generate interest on social media. Trimble, who got his degree in computer information systems, is interested in the way that light can transport information through fiber optics, and connects this to the modern day revelation that both intelligence and mankind are comprised of light.

To be honest, Trimble runs a little fast and loose with the word science. There is no way the scientific method can be used to answer how the Holy Ghost operates. What Trimble does do is propose a fascinating faith-based model that corresponds nicely with existing science. The article is a fascinating read. You should check it out.
