Why I Teach Physics

I believe that God created a universe which is both profoundly understandable and ineffably mysterious. Physics involves a deep search for patterns in the natural world. Through the study of physics, we see the hand of a Creator who has sewn the fabric of nature with patterns which are elegant and understandable. When we keep raising and refining our questions, the elegant patterns of nature lead to novel insights and further mysteries. I love to teach at a place where no questions are out of bounds and we can freely weave together scientific, ethical, and theological ideas.
