Re: “It's About Time

5 minutes well spent Evans. If the universe is an aquarium of sorts, time is the glass. Why would that make us uneasy?

Re: “It's Nothing. Really.

Call me a quitter, but I gave up on boggling my mind by trying to envision nothing some time ago. There is always one contradiction or another to face. What is odd is how hard we try. Why?

Re: “Life: The Long Game

Talk about anthropomorphic projection. Reality is so suffocating. It is almost as if it were designed to cause us to surrender so as to be enabled by our desperation to actually hear God's voice. But never mind. By all means necessarily miraculous and fantastic, hold on to the dream... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cy0ABjAP0T…

Re: “Kickstarting Life

Barry writes: "How did life start here on Earth? Ever since Darwin, scientists have been struggling with that question. (Before him, there was nothing to explain God did it.)"

In other words, since the late 1800's there is nothing to explain, "nature did it". Start with that assumption and then look for the evidence later. That is called the philosophy of materialism, not science.

Re: “A Little Lower Than the Angels?

"Charles Darwin showed how the relentless thrust of evolution further dilutes our previously self-glorified status."

"...according to some contemporary physicists who propose that even our universe isn't special! "Universe" used to be interpreted literally: "that which is combined into one." Now speculation runs rife with talk of "multiverses." Whatever process created our universe..."

Darwin did not know about the digital code of DNA in the 1800s and the multiverse is untestable. It's all part of our final exam. We can believe what we WANT to believe, and what we WANT to believe tells God who we are.

Re: “General Relativity, 100 Years On

Just saw this myself... good questions all of them. Do you think they can be answered apart from our assumptions concerning the meaning and purpose of the universe and of life? How do we extricate ourselves and answer them objectively?

Re: “Bayes, Mammograms and False Positives

On thing to add... given that there are credible historical grounds to believe in the resurrection of Jesus, and that there are credible scientific grounds to believe that the universe came into being, each only once in this course of natural history, we can then use Bayes' theorem not as a proof, but as useful ground in terms of probability for believing -not that each will happen over and over, but that each can happen once more (a total of twice), ergo a collective resurrection and a new heaven and new earth. But it is important to notice that in the prophetic regime, the second nature is not like the present, but seems to be a more real nature, not lacking the added dimension/s and permanence of this nature. It almost gives the picture that this present nature is only the precursor to the real, the prototype, or the evolutionary ancestor of what (in one sense) is still being fashioned.
