In “The Big Bang Didn’t Need God to start Universe, Researchers Say” (Space.com, 24 June 2012), Mike Wall tells us,
Our universe could have popped into existence 13.7 billion years ago without any divine help whatsoever, researchers say.
That may run counter to our instincts, which recoil at the thought of something coming from nothing. But we shouldn’t necessarily trust our instincts, for they were honed to help us survive on the African savannah 150,000 years ago, not understand the inner workings of the universe.
Instead, scientists say, we should trust the laws of physics.
WHAT laws of physics? Aren’t we just back on the savannah with our instincts? It’s not instinct that recoils, it is reason.
Instinct was always prone to magic, reason to calculations.
By the way, who or what is the Big Bang that it “didn’t need God” to start the universe? We thought it was an event, not an entity.
These people are really reaching.
