Both the "new heaven and earth" of Revelation and Paul's mention of the
fallen state of creation in Romans suggest that there are important
differences between the present order and that to come. Apart from sketchy
information regarding resurrected bodies, I cannot think of any passage
giving insight into what the new natural laws would be.
