Origin

Started this discussion. Last reply by James Cox Dec 12, 2013. 138 Replies

I don't come on here too often, to be honest, but something has really been getting at me lately. "How did the universe become?" I can't necessarily consider myself an atheist, and if I did it would…Continue

Where does our energy go?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Pope Beanie Jul 2, 2013. 29 Replies

I don't necessarily believe in spirits or the after life, but I do wonder sometimes; where does our energy go once we die? Conservation of energy states that energy cannot be created nor destroyed.…Continue

Correct me if I'm wrong, but mostly as atheists, we believe in nothingness after death, or at least I think I do. But then we have all of this stuff with mediums and spirits that maybe point to…Continue

"The idea of branes offers an explanation that conforms with the mathematics of cosmological physics and has some explanatory value. That that hardly qualifies as proof still leaves it far ahead of the notion that some guy with magical abilities made…"

"Sadly even my best insights can offer hardly more than a 'warm feeling'. One of my best recent ones left me feeling that 'I wish I did not know this'. Found correlations between carbon sequesture in trees(inversely related), and…"

"See, I imagined hearing a cacophony of scoffs, and grunts. A collective 'scrunt', if you will. (Yes, I just heard it again!)"

"Haha, aren't we all? (Those of you who aren't, please withhold thy wraths from this sacred thread.) btw... word-fucking is, for me, a symptom of over-caffeine-ation."

"Fair enough, I am just suggesting a 'thought skill', where we hold many ideas as interesting, waiting for, or working on, possible tools for experiments and insights. It might be that I am a sad little nerd without a perfect courage to…"

Pope Beanie replied to Dalton Jones's discussion 'Origin'
"I believe that's a reasonable statement. No, wait, avoid the word 'believe'. Ok, perhaps the phrase 'strongly suspect', but that's too long. Could remove a couple syllables. Perhaps 'strongspect'. Advantage:…"

"While I do appreciate 'imagination' as a not un-reasonable virtue, would 'branes' demand the recognition of the 'Ignotum per Ignotius' logic fault? Is the concept of 'branes' any better than the one…"

"You have to throw a lot of your everyday concepts out the window when thinking about the origin of the universe. It's highly unlikely there ever was absolutely nothing. We exist in a dimension that came to be along with the stuff that populates…"

"Dalton, the "Big Bang" model, proposed by a Catholic priest who'd studied mathematics, has long been suspect. For me it echoes Genesis too closely (everything from nothing), and like religion it exerts a pull that many cannot resist…"

"Its hard to know what to think on this one, as science doesn't have all the answers.  That said, I think science will come up with a logical answer before religion ever does.  There are some good theories though, two of my favourite…"

"Well said, Kairan. I remember words like those from my Catholic childhood. When a few priests told me to read more Augustine or Aquinas, I told myself there are other things I want to do. For adults religion is a huge cheat. For children it's a…"
