Since the discovery of DNA and the research done on the genome project, it is increasingly clear to science that there is an Intelligent Designer behind the universe. Now the evidence for intelligence behind the universe moves from the life sciences to physics.
The evidence from physics is found in String Theory. The Nova science program, “The Elegant Universe,” explains String Theory as:
… absolutely everything in the universe—all of the particles that make up matter and forces—is comprised of tiny vibrating fundamental strings. Moreover, every one of these strings is identical. The only difference between one string and another, whether it’s a heavy particle that is part of an atom or a massless particle that carries light, is its resonant pattern, or how it vibrates.
Now, Dr. Michio Kaku, a theoretical physicist, professor at the City College of New York, and co-founder of String Field Theory observes:
I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence. Believe me, everything that we call chance today won’t make sense anymore, ….To me it is clear that we exist in a plan which is governed by rules that were created, shaped by a universal intelligence and not by chance.
Behind the secret of the universe, Kaku speculates,
The final resolution could be that God is a mathematician. And when you read the mind of God, we actually have a candidate for the mind of God. The mind of God, we believe, is cosmic music, the music of strings resonating through 11 dimensional hyperspace. That is the mind of God.

Science and art weave together
For generations, scientists have sought the “theory of everything,” a single theory that would explain all of existence. In the 17th century, Johannes Kepler, the German mathematician and astronomer considered his book Harmonices Mundi, The Music of the Spheres as his greatest achievement. Alex Tesar writes of Kepler:
Deeply religious but unconventional in his beliefs, Kepler thought that because man was made in the image of God, man was capable of understanding His creation. His investigations into light, astronomy, and optics were therefore primarily devotional — they brought him closer to the mind of God. And what was on God’s mind? Harmony.
Perhaps it is this sweet harmony–the resonance of math and music, science and art–that C.S. Lewis had in mind when he had Aslan sing Narnia into existence.
We should not be surprised when science begins to affirm what scripture has revealed, that God has spoken the universe into existence. Or perhaps we should say, He sang the universe into existence.
