Inflation

Big Bang has not been definitively confirmed yet but we have moved one step closer towards that confirmation. A NASA satellite, Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, has sent new data to suggest that the universe, 13.7 billion years old, did experience a rapid inflation in the first one trillionth of a second. It was during these first few moments that the universe ”underwent a violent growth spurt, ballooning from submicroscopic to astronomical size in the blink of an eye”.

This should help to dispel the literalist interpreters of the story of biblical creation. Maybe, after all, this world was not created for us but that we are off this world, we evolved from. Lynn White was right all along, it is the Judeo-Christian story that lies at the root cause of ecological deprivations.

I find space very interesting & I don't think NASA is a waste. Heres a big bang quote "Before the Big Bang


by members

Some believe that the earth began with a bang (a Big Bang) nearly 14 billion years ago. Before that cosmic explosion, all of the universe's matter and energy were stuffed into a particle smaller than an electron. A new theory presents our universe as a small part of a larger fabric of existence. When membranes of this existence clash, they produce firestorms that we define as Big Bang events. According to this theory, our universe will continue to expand into near emptiness. At that time, another clashing of membranes will create a new cosmic bang resulting in the creation of our next universe. On and on the cycle continues, producing an infinite number of universes.

Even with this new evidence, and all past evidence that is out there the literal interpreters of the story of creation will probably never accept the truth. They completely reject science even when it's right in front of their faces. Their god wouldn't lie to them, that's what they believe and I dont see them changing their views anytime soon. Sheer Ignorance.

We are all just variations of that star dust, down to the root, we are all the same. Maybe if people would begin to understand the gravity that statement holds, they would realize that EVERYTHING is connected. Hopefully the public will pull their heads out of the sand long enough and meditate on that. Also, while at the museum of natural history, I read that there are still traces of the big bang vibrations that can be measured, with all this information it is almost pathetic to still clinge to the religious opiates that immobilize us

People will never stop believing in a higher being, to think that the scientific proof of this will stop the faithful is just impossible but I believe we can tweak religion to make people look at their surroundings with a more respectful perception, by emphasizing how polluting is a sin we can instruct the masses to better themselves which will lead to bettering the whole world. It only takes one word of damnation from the Pope to move christians to a paradigm shift but will his highness do this? Probably not
