Mathematics is often defined as the science that studies the relations and properties of geometrical figures, symbols and numbers. One of those numbers is Phi, an irrational number also known as the golden ratio, with an approximate value of Φ= 1.618033988749895… Phi has many applications in several fields of study, including natural science. Through this work we will explore different cases in which a relation between the number phi and God can be witnessed, hoping to call the attention of the reader towards pivotal facts that can help see God’s hands at work behind even the least of things in the stage of this world.
One of the evidences we would like to bring about is that phi can be found in the structure of many architectural works of

Fibonacci is a sequence that consists of series of numbers where a number is found by adding up the two numbers before it. Starting with 0 and 1, the sequence goes 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, and so forth. In nature we can observe a form called the Fibonacci spiral, which is a series of connected circles drawn inside an array of squares with Fibonacci numbers for dimensions. The squares fit perfectly together because of the nature of the sequence, where the next number is equal to the sum of the two before it. For instance, the seed pods on a pine cone are arranged in a spiral pattern. Each cone consists of a pair of spirals, spiraling upwards in opposite directions. The number of steps will almost always match a pair of consecutive Fibonacci numbers. Most of human faces demonstrate examples of the Golden Ratio: the mouth and nose are each positioned at golden sections of the distance between the eyes and the bottom of the chin. Similar proportions can been seen from the side, the eye and ear (which follows a spiral). While this does not apply for all humans, it does function as the factor we tend to link with attractiveness. This is a testimony of the perfectness with which God created the Heavens and the Earth. We can even see his character when we look at the orderliness of the sequence of the Fibonacci …show more content…
Also, if we divide the distance of each planet to the sun by the distance from them to the immediate nearest planet, we are going to obtain the number Phi; if a helix of DNA is measured vertically and divided by the value of the diameter of its cylindrical base, we are going to obtain… you guessed! The number
