Cosmology

001 "The drum in a dream pounds loud to the dreamer." ~ Carl Sandburg



Anisotropy: This term is frequently used to describe the temperature fluctuations in the Cosmic Microwave Background. The word means not uniform, or not the same. Like if you dressed a calico cat with a plaid kilt then filled it with dark energy and exploded it for 13.76 billion years.

Big Bang

"In the beginning there was nothing at all. To the north and south of the nothingness lay regions of fire and frost." ~ Snorri Sturluson 1220 CE

 

Snorri sounds like a real hoot. If the 13th century Vikings had a dictionary, and looked up the word "hoot" I bet Snorri's image…

Atheism and Faith

All to often I hear Xtians saying that that it takes faith to be an Atheist, just as religion requires faith. They typically state that the claims of the big bang or evolution are incredible and require incredible faith to believe. But to me these statements show a total ignorance or misunderstanding of the scientific method.



I will grant them this. The claim alone that the entire universe was born from the burst of pure energy and that we evolved from simpler organisms are pretty… Continue
