"I'm in the same boat, although at a bit of a different angle. My biggest problem was that it was just as pointless as atheism (from the perspective of being religious), and infinitely more pointless (from the perspective of being…"
""Reply by Jeremy Roney on June 1, 2009 at 2:47pm Technically speaking we can't really assume that the laws of physics as we know them hold true outside of our own existence, if one were to take the position that a god created our existence…"
"Reply by Nelson on June 2, 2009 at 6:26pm right. a particle/anti-particle pair are spontaneously generated. but am i correct in saying that there is no cause? there's no cause and effect relationship, that is there's no…"
"what created the creator?"
Explicit in this question is that God is a real thing.
You can have an infinite number of numbers and you can have "infinite resistance" in an electronic circuit, for…"
"2. even if it was apparently caused in some way doesn't mean that it was in fact caused. for instance, Uncertainty shows us that some events that seem to be caused, in what appears to be a very supernatural way really, that is…"
"As for what caused the supermassive black holes. . . No idea. These things seem to operate on a completely different level of physics as regular black holes. The only thing I can think of is if the super-heavy atoms formed after the Big Bang much…"
"Theoretically, the size of the black hole is determined by the event horizon, which is affected by its mass and whether it has A*. However, this is not the physical black hole itself. But since the actual black hole can not be detected, using the…"
"David, a more parsimonious hypothesis might involve an infinite number of universes, or just an infinite universe, all following only one set of physical laws.
Michel, yes, a black hole with low mass would be the same size as one with huge mass.…"
"It requires that there be an infinite number of universes with different laws for physics and that the Universe be apart of something infinite or eternal even though the Universe itself is most likely not"
"I think I've heard the idea of the universe being a burst bubble at the end of a black hole in another universe before. I don't think that article is talking about that, though.
Coincidentally, a black hole is not an object of zero…"
"One possibility is that our universe is just a local event in an infinite universe. Of course this is all hypothetical. I don't think there is anything wrong in contemplating these hypotheses as long as we understand that they are just…"
I'm a college student at Washington State University, I've recently finished a bachelors degree in Biology and am now beginning the teaching program. I plan on teaching high school biology (oh, those evolution units should be interesting). I think of myself as an intelligent person who enjoys being able to think critically.
Why are you here?
To talk to other athiests of course, it gets old wandering around campus being harrassed by the ChristiansOnCampus group (NO, I don't want your bible.) I look forward to being able to talk to other people who have been think outside the box well enough that they have been able to free themselves from the brainwashing that is religion.
The religion you left
Was never a part of one
