Why do we derive uncertainty principles

How do Christians understand God's omniscience regarding the uncertainty principle? [closed]

We are limited by our perception. Have you heard the old math thought experiment about an existence where everything was confined to a two-dimensional plane, and if a sphere went through that plane it would be a circle that gets bigger and smaller for no apparent reason its change into the size?

If we keep this concept in mind and extrapolate a little further, it is not difficult to imagine God as a being able to measure and understand things that we, caught in our limited nature, do not measure and understand can.

We are also limited by our knowledge and vocabulary. The concept of infinity is not something to think about consistently, especially when we mix it with finite concepts without getting into bizarre contradictions. Ascribing infinite attributes to God and then trying to analyze him with finite logic is a futility exercise. For all i know can God the uncertainty principle maybe Not get around, but he knows enough about how the universe works that he doesn't need. Or maybe he understands a higher principle that we don't know about. In any case, there is no point in speculating about it. such a thing does not affect our salvation one way or another.

I understand omniscience and omnipotence to mean that God has all the knowledge and powers necessary to do his will and to carry out his plan, and that is sufficient to serve as the basis for my faith. The details of where exactly the limits are are irrelevant.

The thought experiment is well known, but tragically flawed. I've written on the physics of additional dimensions and I'd love to share if you have a suggested forum.

@AdamRedwine: Can you link us with this material? If so, I think it would be acceptable to do so in a comment here.

You and i have Flatland referenced as part of our answer :)
