Well, as you all know, we are all dying tomorrow. Or rather, we are starting 5 months of utmost torture, and then we die.
But only if you're Atheist.
Or Muslim, for that matter. Or anything that isn't Christian (sorry other 5 and a half billion people) :P
Well, since I obviously haven't been deflowered yet, lets hope there will be an oppurtunity during those 5 months of torture. Although, I'm not really sure exactly what "5 months of torture" entails. Well, we'll find out soon enough, I'm sure.
Although, on the off chance that doesn't happen, maybe the relief will be such I could get a hug or kiss or something :P
Anyway, my homepage is MSN, so whenever I open up the Internet I'm barraged by news reports I really care nothing about.
But recently there was one about Stephen Hawking saying some or other sciency Atheist thing that offended religious people.
And I decided to look at that one, and on that site there were a lot of articles about Stephen Hawking.
One of them was how he called heaven a fairy story or something.
And then there was this big argument in the comments. These are paraphrased by the way, I saw this a few days ago and I'll be damned if I'm applying my ass to finding it again.
"We don't need God, we have the law of Gravity which creates things"
"But then where did the universe come from if God didn't create it?"
"Well, Stephen H says something really can come from nothing, it just appeared. And by the way, who created God? Jeez, whenever you ask Christians that question they always change the subject real quick"
"Well, it makes no sense that something could come from nothing, I'll give Hawking nothing and tell him to make something. You don't even get space, because that is something. And where did the Law of Gravity come from?
And I was like, wow, you guys are so cool (not) :P
First of all, stop it. Both arguments are easy to attack.
You're going to have to accept a logical contradiction here.
If you don't believe in God, then either the universe always was, which doesn't really make sense because nothing can be forever theoretically at least, or there was nothing before the universe, and then there was something, which obviously doesn't make sense.
If you do believe in God, then same questions, he can't have always been there, but if he wasn't, then who created him? The Bible just starts with the spirit of God moving over the water of the sea, it doesn't bother itself with before then.
Either way, it doesn't make sense, and it's really a waste of energy to point out the other logical flaw while just ignoring your own.
Jeez, dick pickles.
So, where do you think the universe came from? Really, I think it's kind of a pointless question.
Because if it did start at a certain point, ah, see, I wanted to say a certain point in time but if the universe started at some point, then theoretically there would be no time, space, matter or energy at all.
So then there wouldn't be a certain point it would start, because there's no time.
Bleh. See this just makes my head hurt. I don't know what it's like to have no time because I always have and I always will.
And then, a few things I think that are weird about theoretical sciency things:
Well, supposedly, the universe is expanding, and all space with it, so it's like, what is the universe expanding into? Because that would assume the universe has edges. And it seems weird to imagine everything having an edge, because that would mean that there's nothing ouside everything, right?
And we can't comprehend that. There's not even space, because as we know, space, even in a perfect vacuum has properties, it's kinda like a vast soup of particles that in an instant appear with a negative and then in the next instand disappear. So everything stays at zero. Or something else like that.
So that means there's, well, not a place, really the only word for it is nothing, where nothing is and nothing can exist. And maybe it is nothing that has no limits? But of course it does, because it's nothing, and therefore doesn't exist, so of course it doesn't go on forever.
Other things I think that are interesting are things like light, which we don't really understand. Because it is a wave, but a wave is nothing in itself, a wave needs something to wave through.
But there is nothing to wave through. So we think that light is kind of a wave and a particle. And so is everything else.
The larger you get, like a golf ball, it's hard to see its wavelike properties, but they are there at a quantum level.
Also, the idea of fundamental particles, it just seems weird to me that there are supposedly things that cannot be divided, they're as small as they can be. It seems like you can always continue dividing, right?
But no :P
And, in an atom, with the electrons spinning around, each in their own shell, when an electron changes shells and goes into a higher or lower energy state, it crosses between shells without crossing the space in between :P
So, it just like poof, then poof, and it's there. No travel. There is no middle ground for an electon :P
SO it's way too late, my computer is about to shut off, so I must say goodnight, my Oasisites.
