Researchers at CERN: The universe should not exist

You shouldn’t exist either. But the people saying so in this case are not population bombers or jihadis.

From Philip Perry at BigThink:

What CERN scientists say as a result of their latest experiment is: the universe itself is a miracle, as it shouldn’t exist at all. This is of course taken in reference to the Big Bang theory. Though the prevailing one, it’s not the only theory to explain how all and everything came into being. Still, in this view, it all starts with the singularity.

We all pretty much know by now that naturalists (nature is all there is) hate th ig Bang and the only question is, how much will they twist science to discredit its significance.

There’s another problem and here’s where the CERN scientists come in. The environment that produced the particles that make up the universe, as we know them now, should have created equal parts matter and antimatter. Yet, the latter is surprisingly rare. Not only that, a 50-50 split would’ve seen each particle uniting with its polar opposite, creating a burst of unimaginable energy and leaving nothing behind, save a vast howling void of a cosmos. And yet, here we are.

One theory is that matter and antimatter must in some way be radically different. But the latest CERN experiment does not find this is the case. According to the Standard Model of physics, a manual for every known particle in the universe and how it operates, each type of atom has its polar opposite, its antiparticle, with the same mass, but with an opposite electrical charge.More.

Of course, in the new naturalist multiverse, there are bound to be a few universes that don’t make sense even if naturalism is true, right? Ours just happens to be one of them.

And don’t question it. Your consciousness is an evolved illusion and Darwin can explain why you see a pattern when there really isn’t one.

    The problem of course is this is effectively a disguised way of bringing up the fine tuning challenge without putting it in so many words.

    Here, in the form: where’s the anti-matter?

    Notice, the beginning:

    Thank your lucky stars you’re alive. It’s truly a miracle of nature. This has nothing to do with spirituality or religion and everything to do with science. Life itself may not be the miracle. Although we haven’t found it elsewhere yet, our galaxy alone is so replete with Earth-like planets that, mathematically speaking, one of them must hold life, even if it’s just the microbial variety. Intelligent life may be another matter.

    So, later:

    The matter-antimatter imbalance, as it’s called, is a popular topic among particle physicists these days, with many teams around the world looking into it. CERN researcher Christian Smorra was on the team who conducted the most recent experiment. He told Science Alert, “All of our observations find a complete symmetry between matter and antimatter, which is why the Universe should not actually exist.”

    He added, “An asymmetry must exist here somewhere but we simply do not understand where the difference is. What is the source of the symmetry break?”

    So, of course, more research — a good thing up to a point but there’s a fine line between progressive and degenerate research programmes adding more and more epicicles etc:

    Up until now, scientists have probed the differences between particles and their opposites by comparing their electrical charge, magnetism, and mass. Next, this team plans to investigate them in terms of gravity, to see if a discrepancy exists there. Another international collaboration based at CERN, called ALPHA, will be studying what asymmetry, if any, exists between hydrogen and antihydrogen atoms. The BASE team meanwhile, also plans on further examining antiparticles magnetically.

    I think a balancing point is to take this in wider context. If there are inherent properties of major antiparticles that are so distinct and have such consequences as a cosmos existing or not, that is fine tuning of laws and parameters of physics.

    Joining hundreds of other points like that.

    Nor is this god of gaps, this is design signatures.

    not a question of if G-d did it, science if serious focuses on how G-d did it. With Cosmology the solution is w/in SPIRAL cosmological redshift hypothesis.
