This thesis will focus on the faith science places in the intelligibility of the universe. It will also focus on three implications of Einstein's theory of relativity, which demonstrate Haught's confirmation approach. The implications which will be examined in depth include: that time is a part of creation and as such it is subject to the laws of physics, that the universe is dynamic in nature expanding out from the big bang singularity, and that energy and matter are unified with each other.
