From Yahoo News: Subatomic Calculations Indicate Finite Lifespan for Universe. This ties in perfectly with yesterday’s criticism of JT Eberhard’s “Redefining Truth” schtick.
From the article:
“If you use all the physics that we know now and you do what you think is a straightforward calculation, it’s bad news… A little bubble of what you might think of as an ‘alternative’ universe will appear somewhere and then it will expand out and destroy us,” Lykken said, adding that the event will unfold at the speed of light.
IOW, the universe is doomed. IOW, science seems to support, ahem, a religious claim… more specifically, a Christian claim: that this universe will not last forever, that it will be destroyed in a catastrophic event involving heat and light, and that it will be replaced by another. And yet, JT is out there pretending that science never confirms any religious claims! Sad, isn’t it? Again, especially considering that JT so actively targets the youth.
Think for yourselves, people! Question things! Please don’t make the potentially mortal mistake of conflating true critical thinking with atheism. If you listen to propagandistic claims from people like JT Eberhard—or Fred Phelps or anybody else—and you swallow them without due examination, you have nobody to blame but yourself.
