So I saw an article today that I found very interesting. Basically, one of the core issues of the Big Bang Theory is the fact that physics tends to break down around it. I mean, where did the dark matter come from, what sets off the reaction, how is it still expanding, the questions go on and on.

The new theory is that the Universe has always exusted, with no beginning as we.would be able to.comprehend it.

There are a lot of interesting ideas out there about this. I read one the other day talking about how our universe could have resulted from a puncture in another one and now our universe is just flowing from one end to the other. I'm not a physicist so I've got no idea if these scientists are loons or not but it is fun stuff to follow.

You mean the whole actual scientific theory that you can't create something from nothing refutes their theory of the Big Bang?

from the article, At least they are getting to this admission.

...To conclude, it’s clear that we do not yet have a solid explanation regarding what happened during the Big Bang, or if it even happened at all. This new theory is combining general relativity with quantum mechanics, and at the end of the day these are all just theories.Not to mention the fact that theories regarding multiple dimensions, multiple universes and more have to be considered. When looking for the starting point of creation, our own universe might not even be the place to start. It might be hard given the fact that we cannot yet perceive other factors that have played a part in the make up of what we call reality. What is even harder is the fact that quantum physics is showing that the true nature and make up of the universe is not a physical material thing! We just don’t know yet, and there are still new findings in modern day physics that delve into non-materialistic science that many mainstream materialistic scientists have yet to grasp and acknowledge...



See, I can respect that. however i think they should take ONE more step. Especially if they are willing to accept UNSEEN and UNSEEABLE multiverses, and NON MATERIAL forces influencing the martial world.

They should allow God as a real option as well. this won't "stop science" it' just makes looking at purpose possible within the context of finding out HOW stuff works. Knowing that a new device was made for a purpose doesn't STOP the a curious researchers quest in finding out how it works and how it was made or trying to make something similar.

An interesting thought to consider is, how many teachers taught Big Bang as though it were fact?

In ninth grade, at age 15, I wrote a term paper that refuted the big bang theory. It was so good that it alone got a 100 from that science teacher. And the science teacher actually told me it caused him to start to doubt the big bang theory of which he had been a staunch believer before!
I believe I posted a thread here before myself about big bang theory being refuted or else about it being wrong.

They had only two choices--either everything came from nothing or else everything always existed.
As I pointed out if everything always existed then how or why does decay ever exist?
Why or how could everything have been in a compact define space to ever go--big bang--and if that mass
of matter 100 to the trillion power of gravity at its center--no explosion of fissional material could blow it apart!
Not even light can escape from a black hole!
I wrote about all this at age 15-ninth grade science term paper, back in 1969.

My conclusion was it all came from a "nothing"(relative terminology) but that nothing was pure energy= God. -Tyr

I kind of got tired of having this argument a LONG time ago. Science reality and scientific theory are 2 different things. Science reality states you cannot create something from nothing. Yet, scientific "big bang" says you can. They can't even follow their own damned rules attempting to refute God.

Same the the "expanding universe" BS. How can something that is infinite expand? If you can't pinpoint the center and the end, how can you say it's expanding? These scientific "theorists" have done nothing but create their religion in an attempt to refute another.

You may have done okay in HS, but I've had this same argument over a dozen times on boards and the main problem is we have a generation of people like our Constitution-hating President that hate God. They believe BS they think refutes him while they really have nothing more of an argument than their own religion.

I think it's more that since more than a generation has grown up with it, letting the theory go becomes harder. It becomes an ingrained belief, every bit as much as growing up going to Catholic school.

I always sort of had issues with it, cause the scientific explanation essentially required the absence of all we know of physics. That always felt like a red flag.

Previously on this board, I've pointed out the holes in Big Bang: so before there was time, space, or matter, at this one point of time, in an infinitely small space, was an infinitely small piece of matter that's never existed before or since.

I've never viewed the science vs. Faith thing as an either or kind of thing. Science, to me, is how we come to understand God's creation. New information, or science that contravenes the Bible just means that some long ago humans, however divinely inspired, were wrong on some facts. It's doesn't disprove God, or any such silliness, it's just new information on how His creation works.

Now see, I could accept a theory of happenstance, if it didn't require the absolute breakdown of all natural laws. You wanna tell me you found a scientific explanation for the universe, GREAT! I'd love to hear it, but if the very next thing you tells me requires getting around all scientific laws, then we have a problem.

Scientific theory cannot refute Judeo Christian theory. Actual science - man defining what man understands is one thing. I understand actual science. It's when they start dreaming up crap.

Typical, people making their own astrophysical and cosmological conclusions with little to no astrophysical or cosmological education. The big bang is still the overwhelmingly accepted model. We have strong evidence and math that describes the universe to the first second. Before that, sure, it's mostly educated conjecture. By all means, put your God there. For now...

The theory is still based on a lot hand-waving, and don't even start on that "lots of science" line. Lots of science said that said that miasma cause infections, and it didn't stop cholera from proving them wrong. Even then, with proof, it took YEARS for them to admit the proof was true.

Lots of science said the maggots and flies were created by rotting meat, until someone proved once and for all that was crap.

Without a LOT of handwaving, the big bang doesn't really work.

I don't think you have a clue of what you are talking about.

Really? Okay, so here we go: Dark energy and dark matter were made up. Even astrophysists admit to this point. Why? Because Einstein's theory of relativity created a point by which we could theorize the beginning of the universe. The problem, came when it was realized that expansion is occuring at a vastly faster rate than Einstein's theory alower for. This is what led to the creation of dark energy and matter, to fill the gap.

This comes to a head with the fact that most points of academic review posit the theory of relativity to be correct, along with allowing for dark matter and energy. Now, posits are necessary to an extent, or we'd have to reprove gravity, and the existence of life every time we start anything. However, when theoretical physics get taken as posits, that presents a serious problem in the review stage.

This, btw, is why it is still the Big Bang Theory, and the Theory of Relativity, not laws.

Two fairly simple points of my own to make ...

Firstly, those who want to be immovably wedded to the 'inviolable' principle that scientific fact and method cannot be questioned, might like to reflect on the fact that all of existence itself defies science.

Has the Universe always existed ? If so, then why does it have any need to change or evolve ?? What could possibly be the point, or function, of that change ? Yet, all observations show that it has, is, and will continue to.

Secondly, if something created the Universe, by sheer definition alone, a God MUST be responsible. Everything we see in the Universe positively screams 'DESIGN' .. physical laws themselves follow, and can be described by, logical process. And, what power to design then create the Universe could ever, possibly, FAIL to be definable as a God ? We have no way of referring to such a force, or intelligence, any other way.

With a God as designer, all things are possible. If the Universe did start, and via a Big Bang ... well, why couldn't a God have done that ? And for that matter, keep on doing it .. time and again ? How do we know that our Universe is the first one that's ever existed ?

Mankind's intelligence is limited, our ability to fully comprehend our very existence likewise limited. We may never get close to understanding what completely explains it ... though we may arrogantly believe otherwise.

There are misconceptions on what a scientific theory is
http://science.kennesaw.edu/~rmatson/3380theory.html

"As used in science (http://science.kennesaw.edu/~rmatson/naturescience.html), I think that it is important to realize that, in spite of the differences (see below), these terms share some things in common. Both are based on tested hypotheses; both are supported by a large body of empirical data; both help unify a particular field; both are widely accepted by the vast majority (if not all) scientists within a discipline. Furthermore, both scientific laws and scientific theories could be shown to be wrong at some time if there are data to suggest so."

Nothing really scientific here, but.... certainly this forum shows how limited human intelligence is. The universe screams design to you because you don't understand how anything works. When you don't understand for some reason people always give up and attribute it to a God. I have no problem with people people saying God started the big bang, but he certainly didn't design anything. Why create a mind blowingly large universe just to fill it up with 99.9% nothing. It's a total fuck up waste.

What a giveaway, eh ?

Pete, how can anything 'work' - much less be too complicated for me to understand its workings ! - unless it was designed to work ??

I take it you'll concede scientists, in trying to figure out the universe, have to apply their intelligence to the task ? That they calculate, logically, explanations for what they learn ? How could any of such a process even be applicable, much less WORK, unless they're unravelling the design itself ?

A scientist discovers the process by which our Sun produces energy. That process follows logical sequence, obeying in the process the laws by which this Universe operates. But ... HOW can any of that exist, how and why would it need any study of such a process, unless following design parameters ?

To suppose that all we know, down to logical process ITSELF, is a mere product of 'chance', or something 'random', makes no sense. Well -- does it ?

You say:


Why create a mind blowingly large universe just to fill it up with 99.9% nothing. It's a total fuck up waste.

Has it occurred to you that your statement is based on a massive preconception, UNTESTED ?

Latest theories say that only a small percentage of the total matter in the Universe is actually directly detectable to us ... that 'Dark Matter' makes up most of it. Now .. we can only deduce what's in the Universe from observation (after all, have we BEEN to the rest of the Universe, or, do we only look out at it with means limited by ourselves ... ?). What if this '99.9% nothing' only LOOKS LIKE 'nothing', because, get this, it's DARK ?? And what if what we cannot see enables what we CAN see, to exist in its present form ?

Could it be, Pete, that you are suffering misconceptions because of your inability to grasp the full extent of DESIGN involved ? H'mm ?

Think about it.

It only makes no sense because you don't understand advanced cosmology and quantum dynamics. Nobel prize winners in physics do and I'm throwing in with them.

Dark matter is still mostly empty space. A hydrogen atom is about 99.9999999999996% empty space. But still, what is the point of creating a seriously enormous universe filled with a few burning gas balls and some dusty comets. Oh and then in a tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny spec of space make a faulty designed earth with a few super faulty cavemen. Yeah, that makes sense. Real intelligent designer there. You must understand how seriously seriously insignificant we are to the universe. An asteroid could come by wipe us out and the universe doesn't blink. Where is your God then?

The big bang theory says nothing about the moment of creation. It's about the process of what happened instantly after. Furthermore you seem to love the "something from nothing" statement. Where do you get that from? Do you know what "nothing" is in science? There is no such thing. According to quantum dynamics even a perfect vacuum is not empty. So what makes you think there was "nothing"?

"While the Big Bang theory explains how the universe has expanded and cooled since it began, it is quite silent on what “pulled the trigger,” so to speak. We simply don’t know what started the process."

"If your mind isn’t blown, wait…it gets crazier still. Empty space—that is, space that contains nothing—no energy, no charge, no matter, nothing—is filled with a writhing, active population of virtual particles that physicists call “the quantum foam,” with bubbles appearing and popping in wild abandon. At the subatomic level, space is never truly empty."

You start with a paramecium and work your way up to all life forms until you reach man and you actually believe it "just happened"?

Secondly, I've already explained that there is no such thing as nothing and that the big bang doesn't attempt to explain what triggered it. Get that in your thick skull.

You think life is perfect? Next time I eat some bad mexican I'll show you my poo and you tell me if that is perfect. Next time your loved one gets cancer, tell me that is perfect. Next time you see a child beaten in domestic abuse, tell me that is perfect. The world and life is amazing, but far from perfect. You let your religion blind yourself from a true education and understanding about the world around you. You don't understand so you just give up and say it must be God. That is foolish.

yeah goofy theories... you mean that ones that helped you build that computer you're using? or the goofy theories that put a man on the moon and landed a probe on a moving comet? The goof theories that make nuclear power possible and supersonic jets flying? yeah those goofy theories... what do they know....

A theory didn't build this computer. A Man did. It's a machine. Machines are man-made by men. God gave us the ability. He doesn't build them for us. And the knowledge and wisdom sure as Hell didn't come from any "theory". It came from experience and failure until success was achieved. Like iron swords that were brittle as Hell against bronze ones that can't stand up to steel.

I theorize if someone loaned me an Ironman suit I could end the war in the Middle East. Want to get back to reality?

Nothing really scientific here, but.... certainly this forum shows how limited human intelligence is. The universe screams design to you because you don't understand how anything works. When you don't understand for some reason people always give up and attribute it to a God. I have no problem with people people saying God started the big bang, but he certainly didn't design anything. Why create a mind blowingly large universe just to fill it up with 99.9% nothing. It's a total fuck up waste.

pete311, you seem to be claiming to have some kind of advanced physics degree, but you are being out-argued by Gunny and Drummond. In the quote here, you claim that Drummond only arrives at conclusions because he doesn't understand how anything works. That's the standard blowhard's claim: "anyone that doesn't agree with me, it's only because they can't comprehend things as well as my incredible brain does." What crap. With that rationale, you can go through life thinking you know more about everything than everybody. That's what you'll be thinking, but that doesn't make it so.

You also seem to think you know better than God, whom you probably don't believe in anyway. You think that because pete311 wouldn't create a universe and fill it up with 99.9% nothing, then God wouldn't have done that either. Maybe God didn't consult pete311 when creating the universe? Did that ever occur to you? Maybe God knows something that pete311 doesn't? Did that ever occur to you?

Stop wallowing in your own hubris, pete311.

The laws of electromagnetism are not theories, and haven't been since the invention of the electromagnet 1824, which confirmed the theory of electromagnetism, turning it into laws as we were to replicate the effects of electromagnetics for full peer review.

No *theories* are used to build computers, only laws. You are giving directly incorrect scientific information.

There are misconceptions on what a scientific theory is
http://science.kennesaw.edu/~rmatson/3380theory.html

"As used in science (http://science.kennesaw.edu/~rmatson/naturescience.html), I think that it is important to realize that, in spite of the differences (see below), these terms share some things in common. Both are based on tested hypotheses; both are supported by a large body of empirical data; both help unify a particular field; both are widely accepted by the vast majority (if not all) scientists within a discipline. Furthermore, both scientific laws and scientific theories could be shown to be wrong at some time if there are data to suggest so."


That's a sidestep. The Big Bang Theory has no empirical data supporting, and uses made up matter and energy to force itself to work. How was it empirically tested, when both dark energy and matter are made up things? Empirically, the theory of relativity is incorrect, as the expansion, again is occurring at a much faster rate than theory allows for.

Empirical data on dark energy and matter don't exists, because to quote the definition of empirical, "based on, concerned with, or verifiable by observation or experience rather than theory or pure logic."

Please show me where any scientist has observed dark matter or energy, and is not theorizing, rationalizing, or just positing it's existence.

And again, quantum foam has, in no way been empirically proven, it's yet another theory, and scientists have been unable to confirm the space-time fluctuations that would begin to prove it's existence. Until it's proven to exist, it's another gap.filling theoretical matter being used to explain things in only a hypothetical manner. It's not even truly a theory at this point.

Pete, part of your problem here is it seems you fail to acknowledge that
some things are LAWS largely establish by experiment and use,
That some theories are well established with good data, some very solid aligned observations and some contemporary experimental evidence supporting them.
While some theories have little but hypothetical crap, thin observations slapped together (contradictory observations are ignored), little to zero experimental evidence and folks with Phds and calculators nodding at each other giving those that don't join in the nodding the evil eye.

Here are a few former scientific theories taught by the majority of the scientist.
Spontaneous Generation
miasmas theory of Disesase (bad air)
Phlogiston theory (a combustion theory)
Recapitulation theory (evolution replayed in the womb:laugh:)
Stress theory of ulcers
Expanding Earth (instead of plate tectonics)
there are many more.

just because something's called a "theory" doesn't mean it has a pedigree that makes it equal in weight as all other ideas that have the LABEL "theory"

a 69' Volkswagen Beetle with broken windows, rusted exterior, balled tires and an engine with 2 piston rods through the block and a Brand new 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT are both "German Cars" but to say they are basically the same, or should be valued the same is a real mistake.

From other threads where this subjects come up
A few things that show the Big Bang is wrong (things that the Big Bang don't explain) are

the spiral arms of galaxies.
Based on gravity and the billions of years ago when these galaxies supposedly formed there should be no spiral arms left.
In only millions of years the spiral arms would have wound up like clock springs and we'd only see disk like masses of stars.
but there they are.

no early galaxies seen.
recently the Hubble telescope looked at a tiny patch of "black" to see as far as possible away and as far back in time as possible.
they expected to find "young" galaxies. but what they found where galaxies that looked "mature". The same as all of the other galaxies we know of. including our own.
So the assumption/prediction of the big bang and it's dates were wrong. The observation does not bare out the big bang timeline.


Star formation is unexplained by the big bang and gravity theory of the cosmos.
Gas does not coalesce in space to form stars, as the story we are told goes.
Temperature and pressure would push the gas particles away from each other before gravity could form stars.
population 3 stars (-original big bang H He stars-) have not been discovered or seen in space.
Stars forming from stars that are already here has more evidence. but the origin of stars in the 1st place has no evidenced based or workable theory via the big bang or accepted physics.


a- The Big Bang predicts that the universe should have a lot of magnetic monopoles.
Fail. there are none found in the universe.

b- The Big Bang predicts that the universe's microwave background should be different than it is.
Fail. the observed microwave background is asymmetrical and there are problems with the tempture. the big bang model could not have caused whats observed.

c- The Big Bang predicts that the universe should have a deep curve of some kind.
Fail. the observed universe is flat. what we observe is mathematically impossible if the big bang is true.

those are considered fatal flaws

d- The Big Bang doesn't predict the fine tuning we see in the universe. link (http://www.debatepolicy.com/showthread.php?46624-Mutiverse-a-desperate-dodge-from-the-Designer&highlight=multiverse) also see doc "the privileged planet".

e- the Red Shift = distance view that's been one reason the Big Bang was accepted initially has been found not to be the only way to read it or the only reason for Red Shift. There are confirmed stars and quasars that have different red shift but are in the same general area. as well as other red shift anomalies unexplained.Unpredicted and brings into question the "expanding universe".

f- some new galaxy observations show that brightness indicates that the galaxies are not expanding and again the red shift must indicate something else. link (http://www.sci-news.com/astronomy/science-universe-not-expanding-01940.html) . that's Unpredicted and brings into question the "expanding universe of the big bang" as well.

g- The Big Bang predicts that the most distance galaxies we observe with our new telescopes will look young since they are close to the big bang.
Fail. Observational data shows the most distance galaxies look the same as the ones near by. that is they look "old".

h- The Big Bang predicts that the universe's cosmic microwave background will have "shadow" of the big bang.
Fail. observations doesn't find one where it should be. link (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2006/09/060905104549.htm)

i- The Big Bang predicts that the universe should have as much anti-matter as matter.
Fail. they've been looking for it and have basically concluded it anti there. link (http://arxiv.org/abs/astro-ph/9707087) link (http://www.sciencemag.org/content/280/5368/1339.summary)

j- The Big Bang predicts that the universe should have a certain amount of lithium-7.
Fail.

k- The Big Bang predicts that we should be able to see stars forming. called "population 3 stars".
Fail. we don't see any. (plus gas in vacuum-near vacuum of space will not coalesce by gravity it will dissipate. so star formation from scratch is a mystery)

There are several more fails to see.

Part 2.
Unobserved particles and forces
Inflation
the above problems are well known and physicist have proposed a solution to a b and c above with "inflation".
inflation asserts a time at the beginning of the universe where it moved at MANY times the speed of light. But that is unobserved and impossible by known standards. Also no one has an solution -in physical reality- for why it started or why it stopped. Plus the "Inflaton" is not an observed particle/force. some say "they are exponentially unlikely".

Dark Matter and Dark Energy
Added to the theory when it failed to predict certain observed phenomena (they're not foundational to the theory it seems but added to the math to adjust the Big Bang to fit the observations), . but it seems neither will ever be observed link (http://phys.org/news/2012-04-dark-theories-mysterious-lack-sun.html).
But other theories to explain the phenomena they cover are not allowed. Former Chair of Physics at Yale said "dark energy is just code for 'we don't have clue'"

Part 3
Breaks known laws of physics and goes outside of science
- Violates 'conservation of mass energy' 1st law of thermodynamic, the Big Bang says matter and energy came from nothing.

- Big Bang has no cause. no laws, no nothing.

- Multiverses are by their nature are unobservable can't EVER be confirmed or falsified and there are "no laws" in these other universes that must be adhered to so why in ours?.

....................
that's the outline of it
....................

none of the above information detail is OUTSIDE of mainstream at all. The only issue is looking at the combination of these and other observations and concluding the obvious. That it brings into question the validity of the whole big bang theory. That's what's radical. And causes the name calling and denials. Scientist are believers and strong defenders of the faith and paradigms die hard among the lay people as well.

Look up problems with the big bang in an internet search see what you find.

Here one,
a conference notes held by some physicist on the "Crisis in cosmology (http://www.aspbooks.org/a/volumes/table_of_contents/?book_id=463)"

Here's another,
"In an article in 2004, Eric Lerner, who is president of Lawrenceville Plasma Physics in West Orange, New Jersey, noted: “Our ideas about the history of the universe are dominated by big bang theory. But its dominance rests more on funding decisions than on the scientific method” (p. 20). He continued:Big bang theory relies on a growing number of hypothetical entities—things that we have never observed. Inflation, dark matter, and dark energy are the most prominent. Without them, there would be fatal contradictions between the observations made by astronomers and the predictions of the big bang theory. In no other field of physics would this continual recourse to new hypothetical objects be accepted as a way of bridging the gap between theory and observation. It would, at the least, raise serious questions about the validity of the underlying theory. But the big bang theory can’t survive without these fudge factors (p. 20, emp. added)." https://www.newscientist.com/article...-the-big-bang/ (https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg18224482-900-bucking-the-big-bang/)
Here's another,
"...The arguments against the Big Bang theory are different from those given to reject theories such as relativity or quantum mechanics. While the latter theories have seen some refinements over the years, no major additional hypothesis was added. Both theories have had their predictions confirmed to a very high accuracy.
In contrast, the Big Bang theory has failed repeatedly to produce predictions that agreed with observations. Instead of rejecting the initial assumption of an initial hot, dense state of the universe, a large number of additional hypotheses are used to hide the inconsistencies. Today, more than 95% of the universe is claimed to be made of a substance which has never been seen...."

Data does suggest that spiral galaxies will lose steam over time as they deplete their gas, however I can't find any information on how many years that actually is. Since our own sun has enough gas for billions of years I am guessing it's not surprising we haven't found any dead spiral galaxies yet.

ok here is now the 6th time. The big bang explains the evolution of the universe, not it's creation. Put god at creation for all I care. The BBT explains what unfolded afterwards.

No you guys don't. This is an elementary fact of the theory. You obviously have read zero material on the subject or you'd know this. Nothing about the theory attempts to explain the moment of creation. It does not exist in the theory.

Said as you refuse to admit why the theory was created, used and promoted in our education system!
It was to be a scientific explanation stated God did not create the universe or mankind and was taught (and accepted)in that capacity for over 50+ years...
Now that slow witted scientist finally caught up to us ,they are now -like you- trying to deny why it was created and how they used it!
Laughable attempt that will only fool those that were dumb enough to have ever accepted it as fact in the first place IMHO.
I SAW THROUGH IT AT AGE 15....
I refuted it at around age 17....
In fact, did so well that my science teacher himself a strong advocate of the correctness of big bang told me he no longer believed it!
Yes, once in our schools we had teachers that learned and that teachers that were already great.
Additionally we had students that debated with teachers, with no harsh words/disrespect but instead on a very intelligent level.
I did so before age 18 when I went into my full rebel mode.. And found out that so much taught was just very clever lies used to gain and keep control.
As is the case now- only even worse in public education-(full blown lib propaganda and idiocy)-TYR

What you're not getting is that the BBT describes a process, not a creation. Just like how you can understand the process of how an engine works without needing to know exactly where and how it was manufactured. Science is opening and tinkering with the engine. Whether we can understand the manufacturer is open for debate.

Oh and the reason satellites work is exactly because of Einsteins theory of relativity.

Looks like some participants here have been having some fun ...

I've picked out this quote because I want to run a concept past pete311 and see if he can cope with it.

Pete, look at the statement I've quoted from you, and perceive just how ridiculous it is from a logical standpoint.

I understand from your statement that satellites work BECAUSE of a theory Einstein came up with ? So ... if Einstein had never come up with that theory, no satellite today would work ??

How much of a mess would we be in if Einstein had never lived, then ??

Pete .. get a load of this ....

Science ITSELF is Man's construct. The concept of science itself comes from Man .. we INVENTED it. We invented it in the hope of trying to make sense out of everything, and to make use of that 'sense' to achieve something (the 'something' dependent on the area of 'expertise' involved .. ?). Science is not an absolute. It might be our effort to try and discern absolutes, but, since we created science itself (the concept, the associated methodologies) .. it is of necessity wholly limited to our OWN LIMITS .. of intelligence, of concept, of practicability.

In considering the truth of this, go a step further to comprehend how arrogant, and judgemental, your statements are. You say that it makes no sense for the Universe to be as empty as YOU say it is (.. though you have moved enough to admit the possibility of a God having created the Universe, regardless .. well done !). But .. do you arrogantly presume to judge what does or does not make the ULTIMATE sense .. and this, from YOUR limitations of intelligence and conceptual scope ?

Besides, all we 'know' about existence comes from HUMAN UNDERSTANDING of it, which may well, because of our own limits, be pathetically inadequate .. and be doomed to always be such. We make what sense we do of existence according to our 'ability' to .. but how do we know that human capabilities will ever be up to the task ?

We do our best. But we cannot step outside of ourselves and independently review how well we've done ... or judge how badly. Presumptions that we can are self-manufactured delusion.

But if you want to continue with such arrogance ... then try and 'revere' the following:

http://science.nasa.gov/astrophysics/focus-areas/what-is-dark-energy/


What Is Dark Energy?

More is unknown than is known.

We know how much dark energy there is because we know how it affects the Universe's expansion. Other than that, it is a complete mystery. But it is an important mystery. It turns out that roughly 68% of the Universe is dark energy. Dark matter makes up about 27%. The rest - everything on Earth, everything ever observed with all of our instruments, all normal matter - adds up to less than 5% of the Universe. Come to think of it, maybe it shouldn't be called "normal" matter at all, since it is such a small fraction of the Universe.

One explanation for dark energy is that it is a property of space. Albert Einstein was the first person to realize that empty space is not nothing. Space has amazing properties, many of which are just beginning to be understood. The first property that Einstein discovered is that it is possible for more space to come into existence. Then one version of Einstein's gravity theory, the version that contains a cosmological constant, makes a second prediction: "empty space" can possess its own energy. Because this energy is a property of space itself, it would not be diluted as space expands. As more space comes into existence, more of this energy-of-space would appear. As a result, this form of energy would cause the Universe to expand faster and faster. Unfortunately, no one understands why the cosmological constant should even be there, much less why it would have exactly the right value to cause the observed acceleration of the Universe.

Another explanation for how space acquires energy comes from the quantum theory of matter. In this theory, "empty space" is actually full of temporary ("virtual") particles that continually form and then disappear. But when physicists tried to calculate how much energy this would give empty space, the answer came out wrong - wrong by a lot. The number came out 10120 times too big. That's a 1 with 120 zeros after it. It's hard to get an answer that bad. So the mystery continues.

Another explanation for dark energy is that it is a new kind of dynamical energy fluid or field, something that fills all of space but something whose effect on the expansion of the Universe is the opposite of that of matter and normal energy. Some theorists have named this "quintessence," after the fifth element of the Greek philosophers. But, if quintessence is the answer, we still don't know what it is like, what it interacts with, or why it exists. So the mystery continues.

A last possibility is that Einstein's theory of gravity is not correct. That would not only affect the expansion of the Universe, but it would also affect the way that normal matter in galaxies and clusters of galaxies behaved. This fact would provide a way to decide if the solution to the dark energy problem is a new gravity theory or not: we could observe how galaxies come together in clusters. But if it does turn out that a new theory of gravity is needed, what kind of theory would it be? How could it correctly describe the motion of the bodies in the Solar System, as Einstein's theory is known to do, and still give us the different prediction for the Universe that we need? There are candidate theories, but none are compelling. So the mystery continues.

The thing that is needed to decide between dark energy possibilities - a property of space, a new dynamic fluid, or a new theory of gravity - is more data, better data.

If the evidence points to a certain direction then that almost always becomes the majority, that is the power of science and my point entirely. Please don't think you can outwit hundreds of thousands of scientists that spend their entire lives working on this stuff.
Are you saying we shouldn't think for ourselves?
Just not to bother our pretty little heads and trust the sage majority on faith alone?
Seems yore saying something like the current science fashion is generally right because, well, a lot of smart people who job's, funding and reputation's depend on certain scientific concepts that are in vogue are always perfectly objective.




I have better things to do on a saturday. You made the claims, you back them up. Google search them, it's not hard. Stop copying and pasting myths taken from other crackpots.

I have checked on them. I haven't found much of anything that refutes them.
A lot of hand waving and name calling, a few counter claims and "but it doesn't matter" or "it dosen't mean what you think it means." claims.
but just science facts no. (I'll admit that a few items on this line have been above my pay grade as far as full comprehension goes, but not so ffar that i didn't get the gist)
Mostly the facts are repeated as i've posted EXCEPT they don't put it in context as a problem for the Big Bang.
Sometimes they note that the observations are "surprising" or "a problem" but don't get into why.




I'll give you the first two
Data does suggest that spiral galaxies will lose steam over time as they deplete their gas, however I can't find any information on how many years that actually is. Since our own sun has enough gas for billions of years I am guessing it's not surprising we haven't found any dead spiral galaxies yet.
Ok, well it's my understanding that the problem isn't steam as much as the motion itself means that the galaxies should have wound up into balls over a far less time than the galaxies imagined existents. the arms just folding closer and closer to the center.

<header>"Crisis in the Cosmos? Galaxy-formation theory is in peril
By Ron Cowen (https://www.sciencenews.org/author/ron-cowen?mode=magazine&context=4304) 12:13pm, October 3, 2005
Imagine peering into a nursery and seeing, among the cooing babies, a few that look like grown men. That's the startling situation that astronomers have stumbled upon as they've looked deep into space and thus back to a time when newborn galaxies filled the cosmos. Some of these babies have turned out to be nearly as massive as the Milky Way and other galactic geezers that have taken billions of years to form. Despite being only about 800 million years old, some of the infants are chock-full of old stars."

"It's not quite time for theorists to panic, but we're getting there," said astronomer Roberto Abraham of the University of Toronto, Canada, after announcing his group's discovery of a startling number of mature galaxies in the young universe. But although the finding seemed to undermine the standard view of how matter assembled, theorists have respectfully declined to sound the alarm....

Sorry Pete that's a fail.
the math maybe complex but the concepts aren't.

13+ billion years ago is when they say the the Big Bang happened.
they say that based on the BiG Bang forces that galaxies and stars should take billions of years to form.
BUT they've now seem to have OBSERVED many only 500 million year old fully formed galaxies.

it doesn't take a rocket scientist or quantum mechanics to see the math problem here.
It's similar with other issues.

I have no real idea what a magnetic monopole is but apparently the Big Bang predicts there should be plenty in the observable universe but they are NOT observed.
NO NEED to be a master mechanic to understand the problem.

I could not explain ANTI-Matter to any degree. but the big bang predicts that the universe should be HALF anti-matter and and HALF regular matter. but there is precious to Zero anti-mater observed in the universe.
NO NEED for a astrophysics Phd to understand the problem.

Either the Big bang is is wrong or severely broken if it predicts the universe should be FULL of stuff we don't see.

The concepts are only easy if you learn them extremely shallowly. This is exactly how misconceptions are made. The concepts are born from the math, but can't be fully described with human language. So common words used to describe the math may mean different things to different people. This is why knowing the math is so important. Otherwise you end up arguing semantics and not what the math really describes.

Actually astronmers think galaxies formed as soon as 200 million years after the big bang. What is your point. How does that falsify the theory?

Yes magnetic monopoles are predicted and have no yet been found. It's a problem to work out and find. Doesn't mean they don't exist. We just haven't found them yet.

Yes there is a anti/matter imbalance problem. Still doesn't falsify the theory. Read more about it here
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baryon_asymmetry

The big bang is not broken, but we certainly have a lot to learn and discover. The issues raised don't falsify the theory. We just need to figure them out. Science is about putting together the puzzle. Right now some pieces are missing but the image and borders are pretty clear.

Don't act like you're so much better than others is all I'm saying.

I just get frustrated when members turn to trolling when my basic statements are quite clear. I have been more than generous here by completely acknowledging a God could have been responsible for lighting the big bang. Yet many members still struggle with understanding that the big bang theory does not attempt to answer the spark question, only what follows. That is what makes me go off the deep end.

not as much you make it seem.

Only after observations seem to have blown the whole in the theory.
check the previous post
"...after announcing his group's discovery of a startling number of mature galaxies in the young universe. But although the finding seemed to undermine the standard view of how matter assembled,..."

As you mentioned earlier theories are a collection or concepts, these observations show the big bang predictions here to be WRONG on the timing by billions of years.

since they haven't been found and should be abundant that's a problem. it's not like lost keys, the universe should be filled with them.
The prediction is false on it's face. To claim we just haven't found them yet is fine i guess, but that's faith in the theory not backed by any scientific observation or evidence.

well they do falsify various parts of the theory and collectively rip it in pieces putting it in the position mentioned by Dragons 1st post "scientist theorize that the big bang never happened" or at least many scientist who --do have Phds and teach the subject--- aren't so sure anymore.

Is the Big Bang a Bust?
The Big Bang Never Happened: A Startling Refutation of
the Dominant Theory of the Origin of the Universe. By
Eric Lerner New York: Random House, 1991, 466 pp. Cloth,
$21.95.

Lerner's case against the big bang is composed
of several different lines of argument. The first is
conventional scientific criticism: The big-bang
conjecture is said to be invalidated by the data.
Cosmologists have a theory, the big bang, that makes
specific quantitative and qualitative predictions that are
tested against observations. They claim success for a
significant majority of these tests, far exceeding all
alternatives. The recent highly-publicized results from
the Cosmic Background Explorer satellite (COBE) provide
further evidence for the validity of the big-bang model.
While admitting that a detailed, satisfactory explanation
of several phenomena, notably large-scale structure
formation, is yet to be provided, big-bang cosmologists
do not see this as fatal. Lerner, however, argues that
these deficiencies are so severe as to invalidate the
whole notion of a universe finite in time and space.
The big bang may be wrong, but Lerner can't
seriously expect to prove it in a popular book. The issue
is hardly likely to be settled without the technical
detail, careful reasoning, and expert critical review of
the conventional scientific paper or monograph, which
this is not. Lerner attempts to go over the heads of
cosmologists to the general public. Despite current
criticism of science, I see no sign that the public is
demanding suffrage in the determination of scientific
truth.
The author does not limit himself to a scientific
critique of big-bang cosmology, but has a larger agenda.
His goal is to refute not just the big bang, but the very
thought processes of conventional science as well. He
argues that the hypothesis-testing procedure is a
throwback to Platonism, a product of theological rather
than scientific thinking and antithetic to the essence of
the scientific revolution.
According to the author, the equations used in big-
bang calculations are treated by the science elite as the
ultimate reality of the universe - like Plato's forms.
Even after these equations are shown to disagree with
observational facts, as Lerner claims they have been,
they are retained by big bangers because of an irrational
prejudice that the theory must be correct regardless of
the facts. Rather than discard the big-bang theory,
cosmologists invent new unobserved phenomena, such as
cosmic strings and invisible dark matter, to "save the
phenomena."
The big bang is promoted, in Lerner's view,
because science has sacrificed its soul to theology. The
theory confirms the theological notion of creation _ex
nihilo_: The universe is finite, having a definite
beginning, created with a fixed design, and gradually
winding down under the inexorable effect of the second
law of thermodynamics.
Lerner argues that this picture disintegrates on
exposure to observed facts, not just those gathered with
telescopes but common experience as well. From
everyday observations, the universe is growing and
evolving to a state of increasing order. The second law
is simply wrong, or wrongfully interpreted.
The curved space and black holes predicted by
general relativity are likewise not common experience,
but the result of abstruse mathematics. Lerner says we
should believe what our eyes tell us, not some
fashionable mathematical equation.
Finally, Lerner finds within this cosmotheological
conspiracy the source of most of the evils of society.
The slavery of the past and the continued
authoritarianism of the present somehow arise from the
idea that the universe came into being at an explosive
instant and is headed toward ultimate decay. He says the
big bang is a convenient paradigm employed by an unholy
alliance between church and state to subjugate humanity.
In their view, the material world came from nothing and
is next to nothing, transient and meaningless in the face
of the eternal, limitless power of God.
Lerner's alternative universe is based on the
matter-antimatter symmetric plasma cosmology
promoted for years by Nobel laureate Hannes AlfvŽn.
Most conventional cosmologists insist that plasma
cosmology is inconsistent with observational data. In
particular, AlfvŽn's universe is half matter and half
antimatter; yet no more than one part in a billion of
antimatter is observed anywhere in the universe.
What arguments does Lerner use to promote the
plasma universe? Again they fall into the same classes
as his arguments against the big bang. And they possess
the same flaws he purports to find in conventional
cosmological argument.
While castigating big-bang cosmologists for using
hypothesis-testing, Lerner is not beyond claiming
successful tests of the hypotheses of plasma cosmology.
While maligning big bangers for inventing new ad hoc
entities, such as the dark matter, to "save the
phenomena," he introduces unobserved, invisible
"filaments" throughout the universe to scatter the
microwave background and make it isotropic as the data
require. (The big bang requires nothing ad hoc here, and,
in fact, _predicted _ the microwave background.) While
he derides the mathematical equations of general
relativity for being inferred from arguments of
symmetry and elegance, rather than directly from
experiment, Lerner extols the marvels of Maxwell's
equations of electromagnetism - also inferred as much
from arguments of symmetry and elegance as from
observation. And while he criticizes the theological
nature of creation _ex nihilo_, he calls on the equally
mystical ideas of Teilhard de Chardin.
Has Eric Lerner punctured the big-bang balloon so
that its collapse is at hand? I doubt it. The big-bang
theory is in no more trouble than the theory of evolution.
Creationists tried and failed to invalidate evolution by
trumpeting a few of the problems biologists still argue
over. Similarly, Lerner tries and fails to invalidate the
big bang by drawing attention to its current unsolved
problems, declaring them fatal while ignoring the
theory's many successes, unmatched by any
alternative theory.
The first successful test of the big bang occurred
with the discovery of the microwave background in 1964.
Lerner dismisses this prediction, labeling it a failure
because the measured temperature of the radiation was
lower than predicted. But the important result was that
the radiation was there at all. No other theory, including
plasma cosmology, foresaw this. Lerner's argument
here is like someone saying that Columbus failed to prove
that the earth was round since he set foot in the
Americas, rather than East Indies, where he had expected
to land.
Lerner also argues that the universe must be much
older than the 15 to 20 billion years required by standard
big-bang theory. He claims that the large structures
being observed by astronomers ". . . . were just too big
to have formed in the twenty billion years since the big
bang" (p. 23). While current cosmology has yet to
accommodate these structures, Lerner has not
demonstrated that it never will within the big-bang
framework. His calculation is based on the _lengths_ of
the structures, the longest being somewhat less than a
billion light-years. In fact, only their _widths_, tens or
hundreds times smaller, need be explained. In a 15 to 20
billion year-old universe, ample time exists to generate
a structure a billion light-years long and a hundred
million light-years wide. We just do not yet know the
exact mechanism.
The fact is: No observation rules out the big bang
theory at this time. And the big bang theory is
successful in quantitatively explaining many
observations. For example, calculations on the synthesis
of light chemical elements in the big bang give
remarkable agreement with measured abundances.
Lerner uses the kinds of arguments one often hears
in public discourse on science, but rarely among
professional scientists themselves. For example, he
argues that plasma cosmology is in closer agreement
with everyday observation than big-bang cosmology, and
hence is the more sensible. A look through a telescope
reveals spirals and other structures similar to those
observed in the plasma laboratory (and, as cosmologist
Rocky Kolb has remarked, in your bathroom toilet as
well). Following Lerner's line of reasoning, we would
conclude, as people once did, that the earth is flat, that
the sun goes around the earth, and that species are
immutable. The scientific revolution taught us to
question commonsense expectations.
Finally I want to comment on Lerner's
connection of the big bang to the Judeo-Christian concept
of Creation. I agree with the author in condemning the
way the big bang has been exploited by preachers, popes,
and some scientist-authors of popular books, as
providing an imagined link between science and religion,
and even a verification of the existence of a Creator. We
have seen this phenomenon repeated as the recent COBE
results are trumpeted by the media as evidence for
God's presence "shining through" in the design
of the universe. These commentators do not understand
that quite the opposite is the case. No support for
creation by design can be found in the theory of the big
bang.
Complete quantum chaos must have existed at an early
moment of the big bang (the _Planck Time_, 10^-43
second). All we know about the universe is consistent
with a beginning that was a spontaneous quantum
fluctuation, with structure and physical laws deve..........

Since 92, many more holes have been punched into the theory.

Note this-

And more scientists are admitting that the universe was designed-created not happenstance from a block of matter so massive that no explosion COULD EVER shatter it and send trillions of trillions of trillions of trillions of tons of matter expanding out as speeds exceeded that of light for over 5 billions years now.
Give me any the mathematical equation that proves such an explosion could occur within a mass that dense with a gravity that no man could ever imagine!

It looks like until the "majority" of scientist tell you it's Ok, then you'll just assume the others are "crackpots" and "anti-science".

Why is it "anti-science" to TEST and challenge prevailing theories? The skeptics of the minority views of science are how it's advanced right?

Biologist and drs --in the minority-- challenged the prevailing views of hundreds or thousands of their colleges when they questioned the humors and bad air and blood letting. The big bang itself was a fringe idea. But somehow nearly all the promoters of new ideas suffered the kind of abuse you're now giving those that are questioning and refuting the Big Bang. It's a well known but less advertised part of the scientific process. Often the old paradigms don't die an easy death. True believers like yourself want more than raw evidence you want a much higher standard of evidence AND consensus opinion 1st for some reason.
But shouldn't you CELEBRATE the process that challenges and test all the assertions of science? One of the coolest things I've discovered about science is how much we DON'T know. Few of the larger concepts are airtight and irrefutable at some level. Especially those that try to imagine events in the deep past that cannot be repeated.

I generally agree. The problem is there is an awful lot of bad science. This is what is so great about the peer review system in science. You develop something and it's checked and verified by thousands of other bright scientists. The cream rises to the top and the sludge to the bottom. Unfortunately the sludge sticks around in some places and more often than not get traction by people with agendas even if the scientific community dismisses it.

Science is always working on new ideas. I am accepting of all them where the scientific community has consensus. Consensus doesn't mean the theory is complete or perfect or that something else won't come along and shatter everything, but at the moment it's the most successful theory we have on the evolution of the universe. Science has not let me down. Take a look around you. See what science has built. Everything is math and science. From your simple clothes to the car you drive.

No one is blowing off the hard questions. People are working on them and there are amazing discoveries every year. Again, it's a puzzle where we have a the borders and can see the image, we are just missing some pieces.

As evidence changes so does the majority. That is why I trust it. Go ahead and falsify the big bang theory. You'll instantly win a nobel prize.

Geez, thanks for the hangover. ;)

I don't know if the BBT is true, or completely impossible. (And I suspect neither does anyone else, really).

But I will say this- if God wanted to create the universe in that way, He certainly could have done it.

I think what Pete is trying to say here is, we have two separate issues:
1. Did God design/create the universe?
2. Whether or not #1 is true, does the BBT explain the expansion of the universe?

The real hubris is in thinking we can actually know the how of it all. I look forward to having these questions answered when I see Him. Assuming I still care at about such mundane things in His holy presence.

My point is, and this thread is pretty much proof, NO ONE KNOWS. Yet, you have the scientific theory geeks who swear their theory is better than the Bible's. With the same amount of no proof.

And I always ask the same two questions: How can you expand something that is infinite; and, how do you create something from nothing? If God created the universe, then he existed. If he existed, then there is no Big Bang Theory because He had to exist somewhere. I don't think He just popped up out of nowhere.

I think this is the 11th time now. BBT describes the evolution, not the creation of the universe. I also think you make a few severe assumptions here. In the end it may be our biological brains that limit our chance of understanding. Some of these questions we may not be built to understand.

That is the beauty of science. It keeps getting better, corrected, refined. A dusty old book of poorly written fairy tales that explains nothing about the world does not.

But that's the misnomer. Nobody is claiming that the science doesn't exists; ID or creation or whatever says that we are where we are because of some sort of guiding process.


Nice sidestep there. You should be honest and address the point that these theories you are willing to bet your eternal life on as being rock-solid true, change.

I would not choose to put faith in something so changeable, and neither should you. Would you build your house on shifting sands?

I think that is a different question. ID and science are not on the same footing.


Science ITSELF is Man's construct. The concept of science itself comes from Man .. we INVENTED it.

Science is not man's construct. Man discovered the science that already exists.

And for the 12th time, it's nothing but guesswork. You're going with an unproven process. I DO agree that our brains limit our guesswork. When Man presumes to be God, he's got to take God out of the picture. Man's arrogance has created the scientific theory people because Man can't accept anything being superior to him. And we waste BILLIONS and TRILLIONS trying to prove something we can't, and disprove something we can't. How about we apply that money to the $19 trillion we're in debt?

We have quantum computers. You don't think quantum theory come into play?

We have computers that can run quantum computations based on the input algorithims of the developers, but laws of electromagnets and electricity are used to govern the vast, overwhelming majority of ALL computers.

This is ANOTHER sidestep, pete. All Laws were once theories, but theories are not LAWS. They cease being theories when the laws are proven. If you study science at all, you should know this. It's like knowing the different between the concept sketch and an actual road worthy car.

No doubt we are in the beginning stages of understanding dark matter but all signs are it's a real thing

A direct empirical proof of the existence of dark matter
http://arxiv.org/abs/astro-ph/0608407

Sigh... why, pete? For the love of God, man, come to science! You just provided a Link to a point I keep making, so let's take a look at the relevant point:


An 8-sigma significance spatial offset of the center of the total mass from the center of the baryonic mass peaks cannot be explained with an alteration of the gravitational force law, and thus proves that the majority of the matter in the system is unseen

Empirical data is OBSERVED data, not theorized, not using a lack of something as proof you're right. They did NOT observe dark matter, they POSIT that they observed dark matter due to a lack created in their testing. That isn't empirical data. The lack of ability to observe a thing automatically renders empirical science done.


UA Astronomers Report First Direct Evidence For Dark Matter
https://uanews.arizona.edu/story/ua-astronomers-report-first-direct-evidence-for-dark-matter

How do we know Dark Matter exists?
http://www.quantumdiaries.org/2013/06/26/does-dark-matter-really-exist/

Quantum foam on a space scale is mathematical, but the existence of random emergence and annihilation of virtual particles at the quantum level is well understood especially with the Casimir effect.

Okay, I was going to do each of the articles seperately, but that's a waste of time, because they're essentially the same thing. In every instance, they are trying simply state it does exist, and then therow up a test that "proves" it exists.

Tbis, AGAIN, is the whole problem I have to begin with. More hand-waving, more assumptions as proper science. Here, you know when it's empirical? When they have DIRECTLY measured, not through a telescope from billions.of miles away, but with samples in multiple labs doing weights measures of it.

Only the first article even contained some degree of real science, and it STILL dropped the ball on empirical proof.

Again, with regards to quantum, these are all theories based off ASSUMING another theory was right, even though they had to create a fictional.to make the theory work. Quantum foam still hasn't been proven, and just because there is a force of transfer from the Casimir effect, does NOT prove anything as to there being quantum foam.

True we have not directly "seen" dark matter. We are still figuring out how we could possibly see it. Rather we infer it's existence via it's effects on regular matter and through our equations.

Whether empirical data is required is up for debate. Here is an interesting article.

I don't doubt that a goldfish is totally happy with what it understands of its reality. But what it 'knows' is a very tiny part of the totality. Try asking a goldfish about the nuclear fusion process going on in stars ....

We THINK we know 'quite a bit', but then, our concept of what that 'quite a bit' adds up to, is a product of what WE PERCEIVE. We may actually know, and probably only DO know, next to nothing.

I don't live in a cave. But how do I know, or how do you, that what you perceive as the totality of existence isn't the equivalent of some smallish pond somewhere in Florida ? We can only measure what we perceive to exist, or be true. We may be failing to perceive or measure every bit as much as a goldfish does, in failing to launch the fish equivalent of the Voyager series into the furthest reaches of our Solar System ....

The scientific principals didn't only begin to exist once we thought of it. The earth was always round,

... sure about that ? No possibility of its being irregularly shaped, in the earliest moment of its creation ?


the sun was never the center of the universe, lead was never going to turn into gold, the boiling point of water varies depending on altitude. etc.

... or you, ever being a genuine Conservative. OK, I get your point, thanks.


Though I do completely agree that we may know so little of our universe compared to neanderthals but that doesn't mean the principals that govern its workings don't exist.

Sure ? What if the 'principals' that 'govern its workings' only SEEM to be correct, because they conform to our observations and measurements, yet miss the truth by several light years ? We could be the equivalent, right now, of a 'scientist' who's achieved the stupendous achievement of successfully creating an accurate tape measure, accurately measuring three yards with it, then going on to extrapolate the entirety of existence from the measurement !!

The principle of the tape measure exists. What's measured with it may exist. But what's that got to do with quasars or black holes ? Or, things we have NO knowledge of, nor the inkling of a concept to so much as imagine ??

Take my example of the tape measure creation, then measuring a distance with it. The 'scientist' measures what that scientist has a concept for, and a means to measure with. The 'scientist' reaches a conclusion consistent with his / her method and resulting observations.

If the 'scientist' has concepts for ONLY this, and goes on to fantasise, somehow, that the extent of his concepts and measurement all add up to a 'science' which can measure all of reality, this, FJ, is purely the imagination of the scientist at work, bearing NO relation to ACTUAL reality. You can't build a radio telescope with only a tape measure to hand. You can't take Hubble photographs with all the limitations of a tape measuring device. You can't create (or dream of wanting to) a Hadron Collider with a tape measure, or by utilising the 'science' involved in conceptualising then creating that tape measure.

My point is that the 'science' we believe in may in fact be every bit as remote from the actual scope of actual reality as the examples I've suggested, so much so, as to involve principles and concepts 100% alien to the REAL science that'd be involved. We INVENT a presupposition to the contrary and delude ourselves accordingly. Our 'science' may only SEEM to be the 'science' we think it is.

What if, what if, what if, what if.

The fact is that the big bang theory has been very successful. There are some holes to be worked out, but it explains an awful lot. Throwing that in the trash just because of some "what ifs" and replacing it all with. "Well, it's God's will" it totally stupid and we've never technologically advance.

Well ... 'what ifs' are (or can be) an excellent basis for creating theories ! You should welcome them.

And those 'holes' could be highly critical ones. If a theory does NOT fit the known facts, this can mean ..

1. We don't have all the facts, &/ or ..

2. The theory just doesn't work. It needs to be rethought.

Perhaps one massive hole - even if not a black one - is to remove God from the equation .. ?

But Pete, tell me. Why do you so strongly deny the inclusion of God's will in your thinking ? From what CERTAIN KNOWLEDGE do you choose to do this ? Any at all ?

Or are you letting preference get in the way of scientific objectivity ?

Perhaps what you call 'an agenda', is simply a display of comparative open-mindedness ... an open-mindedness to an alternative which closed minds just choose to summarily reject out of hand ?

Throwing that in the trash just because of some "what ifs" and replacing it all with. "Well, it's God's will" it totally stupid and we've never technologically advance.

The big Bang has had a run at the front spot because of a few observations that seemed to align with it back 30-40 years ago. But further research is causing those things that gave it a leg up to fall away. "red shift" data for example..

but here's the thing about your assertion that bugs me.
why do have to have to cling a KNOWN bad or spotty answer?

why don't you --and others that have such a high view of science--- just say something like.
"Many scientist THINK this MAY what happened but it doesn't quite fit all the data. So truth be told WE JUST DON'T KNOW for sure. There are others option, but many scientist and others like this theory best right now because.... However we're open to exploring ALL options that align with the observations the best. Because the facts is what we all want."

Rather than defending one theory as if science and rational life itself will be destroyed if it's questioned or set aside.
I can understand a working scientist who's spent decades basing all his work on it clinging to it for dear life but those not so wedded have an option of looking elsewhere without career or mental consequences.

As far as replacing it goes. well that's another issue.
It's man's idea that we will be able to find natural causes for all processes... one day, but that's really just a "belief" it's not proven. So to claim that there is no supernatural source is arrogance and blind faith. But on the other hand to shoehorn God in prematurely is a mistake as well.
I always admit that i believe God created it all. But how many steps back we go in natural causations before we hit the wall of the hand of God is the question for me. However It seems to me we're getting closer to it. In biology i think we're about there.
the chicken and the egg problems are obvious to those honest enough to look. There's no natural causal bridge to cover that span.
You must have DNA to make DNA. so how did it get here? there's ZERO way to begin to explain or imagine a natural chemical process to get there.
ZERO.
chemicals final break down or only org in simple patterns in ALL situations without specific codes to tell it otherwise they never form complex proteins, or DNA or RNA. never in any natural setting. period.

the Universe being here presents it's own problems pre science. "why is there ANYTHING, instead of nothing?"
After that hurdle then OK it's here, so has it been here always? how could we tell if it were? seriously? how would you conclusively measure eternity past? entropy says it won't be in this form for ever. Is it just an accident we're here to see it at all? really? Are you absolutely sure ?

This is what happens when the other side you are debating goes extreme, it ends up making you go extreme on your side in an attempt to balance them out a bit. What you are saying here is what I think and is responsible. Yes we don't have all the data. Yes, there are holes. Yes, there could come something along that smashes it apart. I've said in a previous poll that I'd not argue it. I'd welcome and be amazed by it. I follow the science wherever it takes us. However, at the big bang theory is still vastly accepted because it has successfully described what we observe. Until something comes along that can falsify it, it's the best we have so far.

Ah you were almost making some sense there for a bit. Biology science is only just scratching the surface. Speed up 100 years and you'd likely be flabbergasted at what we have learned. Look at history. There is only a massive increase in science discovery. There may be a wall, but it's not even close to being hit. Your DNA comments are for another thread, but there are great advances in that field. It's only a matter of time. Again, just because you don't know, what do you give up and turn to God. Just say, I don't know, let's figure it out. Otherwise we are just cavemen. Why even try to figure out fire. Too mystical. Doesn't make sense.

faith in science discovery is ok i guess.
but here's the thing. Is Chemistry going to change? Is entropy going to change. unless the laws of nature change. the chicken and egg question stands as a wall to "nature" Pete.

fire is a chemical reaction that follows those principals ...down hill. Biology follows another set of principals.. UP HILL based on information systems. Similar to what you've mentioned about the big bang NOT explaining how thing got here at 1st or before. there's NO possible chemical processes observed, or created experimentally that gives rise to the information needed to maintain life. the information has no natural source. it's just here.
The wall is the same kind of wall, an a unique unknown that's leaves us with a not just a puzzle to figure out one day maybe like earthquakes or weather, but a paradox that has no natural source or answer.

When addressing the question he writes that "there never was a first person -- because every person had to have parents, and those parents had to be people too!"[12] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_or_the_egg#cite_note-12) By this logic then there never was a proto-chicken that laid the first chicken egg.In order to explain this mind boggling concept, Dawkins employs a thought experiment where you start with a picture of yourself and stack a photo of your father on top of your photo. He says to consider continuing this process indefinitely, or until you finally encounter the common ancestor of all life on Earth. Now that you have this incredible genealogical record of yourself, or a chicken, begin pulling out pictures from the stack. Dawkins says that at each generation the immediately preceding photographs will look only slightly different from the generation before or after, not distinguishable as separate species from their forbears. In other words, no matter where you decide to pull a photo from your stack of ancestors he will definitely be recognizable as the parents of the generation after himself, and a child of his parents' generation. But take photos from thousands of generations apart and the ancestor will be nearly unrecognizable from their eventual progeny.[13] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_or_the_egg#cite_note-13) In the same way that there was never a first human, there was never a first chicken. Therefore, the chicken and egg both preceded one another or the question is invalid to begin with."

You just prefer it to suffer yours, eh ... ?

Not even after several pints of an especially intoxicating beverage ?

Man came up with a way (??) to measure something that may be completely removed from what he SHOULD have been measuring, because he'd invented a concept of what needed to be measured which didn't apply to the totality (... in my example). The validity of thought process involved is therefore nullified, the delusion that it be accurately measuring what is INTENDED may be pure invention.

Man came up with numbers. He didn't come up with the fact that things can be numbered.


If I am actually right, he created something having zero relevance to the actual means of understanding really called for.

You're not actually correct. Man didn't event the rules by which the universe works.

At some point in science we'd come to an uncaused cause or find/assume infinite causation. Either way, THAT is a paradox.

you say it's like "reverse engineering an engine". Well Ok those terms are loaded. Reverse engineer implies it was engineered in the 1st place. Engineered by who? Also you ASUMME the engines existence. Ok where'd it come from? Where did the matter come from to form it?
At some point in science we'd come to an uncaused cause or find/assume infinite causation. Either way, THAT is a paradox.

Not who but what. Nature itself is a builder. Where the matter came from is exactly what the BBT is about. How matter came to be in the first place is where science ends at the moment and currently does not attempt to describe, at least with BBT.

I find it ironic how BBT'ers are skeered to say that God built anything, but are very comfortable saying: a) Nature built everything, or b) Random Chance built everything.

By the way, I could have guessed about 15 pages ago that you're a fan of Dawkins. Its strange though, that you can scoff at excellent arguments being made by Rev, Tyr, Drummond, and Gunny, but you're totally down with Dawkins and his unconvincing pile of photographs.

"According to evolutionary biologist and popular science writer, Richard Dawkins (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Dawkins), the question is moot.[11] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_or_the_egg#cite_note-11) In his book, The Magic of Reality (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Magic_of_Reality), Dawkins discusses the origins of humanity, and presumably any other species, in a chapter titled "Who was the First Person". When addressing the question he writes that "there never was a first person -- because every person had to have parents, and those parents had to be people too!"[12] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_or_the_egg#cite_note-12) By this logic then there never was a proto-chicken that laid the first chicken egg.In order to explain this mind boggling concept, Dawkins employs a thought experiment where you start with a picture of yourself and stack a photo of your father on top of your photo. He says to consider continuing this process indefinitely, or until you finally encounter the common ancestor of all life on Earth. Now that you have this incredible genealogical record of yourself, or a chicken, begin pulling out pictures from the stack. Dawkins says that at each generation the immediately preceding photographs will look only slightly different from the generation before or after, not distinguishable as separate species from their forbears. In other words, no matter where you decide to pull a photo from your stack of ancestors he will definitely be recognizable as the parents of the generation after himself, and a child of his parents' generation. But take photos from thousands of generations apart and the ancestor will be nearly unrecognizable from their eventual progeny.[13] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_or_the_egg#cite_note-13) In the same way that there was never a first human, there was never a first chicken. Therefore, the chicken and egg both preceded one another or the question is invalid to begin with."

Before I get jumped on. Of course nothing is conclusive and we have a long long way to go....
the thing about Dawkins "stack of photos" is that it's mythical.
It's assumed, there's no hard evidence to back it up just conjecture and changeable guesses at even relatives and "transitions".

“Why then is not every geological formation and every strata full of such intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely-graduated organic chain; and this perhaps, is the most obvious and serious objection which can be urged against my theory.”

I already put the case of 'design' to him. He had no real answer to offer to it. The best he got to trying to refute it was to suggest that a supposedly '99.9% empty' Universe spoke of poor design ... except, of course, this failed to reasonably take into account either Dark Matter, or worse, Dark Energy, both of which are considered to make up most of the Universe, but neither of which can we directly observe.

Not that it's important, either way. Since we're not God, we cannot have His insight into what does or does not constitute good design. Although I daresay that Lefties are arrogant enough to believe that they are the ultimate arbiters of such things .... :laugh:

FJ, there is a case for it, most clearly from 2 scientific povs

From the cosmic scientific POV of why the universe is "fined tuned" for life has been admitted and baffling. the 2 possible solutions are one a multi-verse which does not add up to the known science
or 2 DESIGN by a mind of some sort.

the other is biologically.
where again you have a chicken and scenario. where the INFORMATION embedded in DNA and RNA had to be there 1st to get the processes going. there's ZERO stairwell to get there. you don't accidentally fall uphill while playing mozart on a banjo.
Darwin even admits this.
And more importantly the ONLY source we EVER evidently see in the universe for complex information systems that read and write language is from a MIND. then the clear scientific conclusion is BIOLOGY is based on design.

It's already written.
The SETI project scans waves from space looking for patterns that are not random but go beyond simple repetition and form codes. Based on that if they receive a complex coded message then that is the indication of intelligent life.
Coded messages are not natural, by default they have an intelligent source.

Intelligence is not the question. Design is the question.

The two are indivisible, though. An intelligent mind must be involved in design. Accept the existence of design, it's only logical to automatically accept that an intelligence is, must be, at work.

A big problem that disbelievers in God have is that they also have to refute any possibility of design in the Universe .. when everything around them positively screams 'DESIGN'.

No, those are logical conclusions based on scientific evidence.

Good science makes conclusions based on the evidence, it's only supposed to change when new evidence piles up in another area to make another conclusion MORE likely.
In this case YOU are -a priori- using faith to assume there's materialist only conclusion based on YET to be found evidence to explain it what appears to be designed.
Your assuming materialism = science instead of assuming science = finding WHATEVER the facts are.
the thing is the SCINCE TODAY leads to the conclusion of DESIGN and DESIGNER. miraculous accidents have hit scientific and logical brick walls.

It's like someone who lives on an island with 4 known people left and they've decided that ALL deaths going forward are ONLY by accident or natural causes. But they find someone dead and the other 3 were together during the time death, but the death doesn't look like and accident. There are stab wounds in the back, writing on the body, the body dressed in cloths no one on the island can make or has ever seen, and the body put into an upright position in a chair on the roof of a house.

Sure there MAY be a way to find out how it all happened by accident or natural causes ONE DAY, but is that the BEST or an honest answer?
If one wants to cling to the idea that one of the remaining 3 did it even though there's NO WAY anyone could have because there was no time, they don't have the strength, the tools, the writing pens, inks or the motives. If they still want to cling to the idea that there's NO ONE else on the island they can. but it's AGAINST the available evidence. This death doesn't add up to accident it adds up to murder.
It's not "just opinion." It looks like someone else is on the island.

In a murder case if the evidence leads to ONE suspect it doest matter if most trained detectives on the case "believe" the usual suspects actually did it. And believe they'll find out how their favorite suspects REALLY did it one day even though they all have airtight alibis.
It doesn't change the facts of the case where they significantly and definitely point to someone they'd rather not suspect.

Design and codes are the product of minds, it's the ONLY known source of code...ever observed. there's no other source.
As SETI acts on scientifically, if you find code you KNOW there's intelligence.
it's not an just a baseless "opinion", it's the logical conclusion, a rational deduction, the only thing that makes sense based on what's observed.

fj1200
12-17-2015, 12:40 PM
No, those are logical conclusions based on scientific evidence.

That is a faith-based conclusion. Nevertheless I can test if there is a third person on the island by looking for him. I don't want to pull a Gunny here but it becomes a semantic argument. Science will observe, hypothesize, investigate, test, and repeat until scientific conclusions are reached. At no point does science stop and say "Designer."

so in a case where the evidence is obvious that the death is NOT accidental then UNTIL you FIND the murderer... the murderer doesn't exist.
