SCIENCE'S GRAND DESIGN

An Extraordinary Science Adventure





News from the science front brings us a wee bit closer to knowing (and I mean wee) how the Universe came into being. It’s so refreshing when scientific education succeeds in opening doors and letting in natural facts concerning reality. Therefore perhaps, closing, a little bit, the collective mental gap developed by human religion to believe the fictitious divine intervention tale as fact.


Religion offers no answers only FAITH a word that means (in religion) no proof but what we tell you (no matter how preposterous it may sound) is true, so you better believe it or else.


It’s as though religion had became an aggregate ‘personhood’ and entered the human psychic, writing indelibly these words … "Hey 'I' have no answers, no proof but that’s OK. All you have to do is just keep the faith that (a) God created the Earth, sprinkled it with creatures (animal and vegetable), in preparation for the real mission of concocting a GODLY mortal who will be separate from the sprinkled creatures that were solely put on the Earth to be used by this GODLY mortal that 'I' will dub MAN. These words are not to be, forever and EVER, questioned!”


Somehow, this mythical tale of ole’ was able to take hold of a reasoning part of way too many human brains, kidnapping minds, forcing them to believe it reality. YIKES!


Thank goodness for the superior intellects (like Stephen Hawking) who live amongst us and lead us into the glorious light of real awareness. AMEN! thinkingblue


PS: On the "Burning Koran Day on September 11, 2010".

The crackpot from Florida who is insisting on spreading HATE & FEAR. (BTHOM, that one lunatic is able to wield such power; just goes to show how insane humans have made existence.) There is a website out there that is trying to counter this KOOK who has posted on his Dove site
http://www.doveworld.org/ (which BTW has been taken down... Hmmmm, I wonder why?) "Ten Reasons to Burn a Koran" by retaliating with "Ten Reasons Not To Burn A Koran".

Here is my response:

---
Religion is a product of Homo sapiens (or the humans) who inhabit this Earth. They were created to promote security in an insecure world, to lessen the fear of death and to give human beings a feeling of social togetherness. Today’s religions should encourage love and teach tolerance. If a religion supports intolerance such as the one in Gainesville, Florida called Dove World Outreach Center, it ceases to be a promoter of peace and instead becomes a facilitator of hate and intolerance. The ordered burning of another people’s religious bible (or sometimes called Good Book) can only spread hatred especially when the head of this so called religion advertises this notorious action as something good. Burning another group’s Good Book will not accomplish what he wishes and that is to spread scorn or prejudice towards the Islamic belief system. In the end, the only thing Pastor Terry Jones will accomplish, is that he and his religion will be thought of as belonging to a group of sociopathic lunatics, and that is one good reason not to burn a Koran.

God did not create the universe, says Hawking

any place in theories on the creation of the Universe due to a series of developments … .By Michael Holden

LONDON (Reuters) – God did not create the universe and the "Big Bang" was an inevitable consequence of the laws of physics, the eminent British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking argues in a new book.

In "The Grand Design," co-authored with U.S. physicist Leonard Mlodinow, Hawking says a new series of theories made a creator of the universe redundant, according to the Times newspaper which published extracts on Thursday.


"Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe
exists, why we exist," Hawking writes.

"It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going."

Hawking, 68, who won global recognition with his 1988 book "A Brief History of Time," an account of the origins of the universe, is renowned for his work on black holes, cosmology
and quantum gravity.

Since 1974, the scientist has worked on marrying the two cornerstones of modern physics -- Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, which concerns gravity and large-scale phenomena, and quantum theory, which covers subatomic particles.

His latest comments suggest he has broken away from previous views he has expressed on religion. Previously, he wrote that the laws of physics meant it was simply not necessary to believe that God had intervened in the Big Bang.

He wrote in A Brief History ... "If we discover a complete theory, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason -- for then we should know the mind of God."

In his latest book, he said the 1992 discovery of a planet orbiting another star other than the Sun helped deconstruct the view of the father of physics Isaac Newton that the universe could not have arisen out of chaos but was created by God.

"That makes the coincidences of our planetary conditions -- the single Sun, the lucky combination of Earth-Sun distance and solar mass, far less remarkable, and far less compelling evidence
that the Earth was carefully designed just to please us human beings," he writes.

Hawking, who is only able to speak through a computer-generated voice synthesizer, has a neuro muscular dystrophy that has progressed over the years and left him almost completely paralyzed.

He began suffering the disease in his early 20s but went on to establish himself as one of the world's leading scientific authorities, and has also made guest appearances in "Star Trek" and the cartoons "Futurama" and "The Simpsons."

Last year he announced he was stepping down as Cambridge University's Lucasian Professor of Mathematics, a position once held by Newton and one he had held since 1979.

"The Grand Design" is due to go on sale next week.
