klypp replied to Dr. Terence Meaden's discussion WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE THE BIG BANG? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"The first law of thermodynamics isn't violated if the energy of the universe is exactly zero, and it's starting to look that way, in terms of physics. True, a temperature of exactly zero would not violate the first law of thermodynamics.…"

klypp replied to Dr. Terence Meaden's discussion WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE THE BIG BANG? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"So I have to explain why the universe - time, space, energy and matter - popped out of nothing? Hawking can be consulted on this but what's the point? I have confidence in science and this is presently the best model. The point is that if you…"

"You are completely missing the point here! Let me try again... There are no scientic support for the idea that time has a beginning. This idea comes from Plato, a philosopher that detested observations. His ideas has entrenched western thinking…"

"Phil, you want to clarify the relationship between science and philosophy. You want definitions. And yet – without them – you already know that Plato, Aristotle, Epicurus and Sartre are philosophers and not scientists? How come? Plato…"

ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN

We debate origins of the Universe, life, Earth, humans, religion, atheism, using common sense, evolution, cosmology, geology, archaeology, and other sciences, to repel biblical creationism and other religious beliefs.

klypp replied to scott martins's discussion IS EVERYBODY 100% POSITIVE THERE IS NO GOD?
"Sure God exists! Or, eh... rather he kind of did... He came around yesterday doing that burning bush trick while I was watering my roses. Of course I took advantage of the situation and put him out with a well directed splash of water. He's…"

klypp replied to Chad Wilson's discussion Young Men Behaving Badly
"Is this about pornography? No, it isn't! According to Chad Wilson it is about insulting people! Why are these people feeling insulted? Could it be that the college students are calling them names or otherwise characterizing them in a degrading…"

klypp replied to Chad Wilson's discussion Young Men Behaving Badly
"In their blog they call it "a clever reversal of the projects some religious groups have in which they collect porn and distribute bibles". I fully agree - it is clever! Their "point" is to trigger a debate on the ethics of the…"

klypp replied to Tom Thompson's discussion Does the future exist?
"Ooops! I posted the wrong link to David Pressler's lecture. Here is the correct one. Time dilation. First, GPS do not compensate for time dilation. This is a myth. The GPS system has to correct for a wide range of error sources. A possible…"

klypp replied to Tom Thompson's discussion Does the future exist?
"Let me make a few thing clear right from the outset. Time travels are not possible, neither is a two-way communication with the past. Time dilation does not exist. Spacetime is a mathemathical construct with no physical counterpart. All of these…"

klypp replied to Tom Thompson's discussion Does the future exist?
"With the risk of adding to all the warped ideas already present in this thread: What if the entire universe suddenly travelled 20 years back in time – except you? Would you say the universe travelled back, or did you just travel 20 years into…"

klypp replied to Tom Thompson's discussion Does the future exist?
"Free Thinker, what I said was ”No observation or experiment ever confirmed or suggested more than 3 spatial dimensions.” I notice that you avoid confronting this claim right to my face, but still tries to discredit it: “But…"

klypp replied to Tom Thompson's discussion Does the future exist?
"There was no doubt that matter existed, long before it's building bricks was visualized. The modern atom was discovered through experiments and not by multidimensional speculations. No observation or experiment ever confirmed or suggested more…"

Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its thousands of good friends.
As an atheist you recognise religion for the fraud that it is, seeing that gods are nothing but fictions inside the heads of the credulous,
so you stand like us on the intellectual high ground..

Terry Meaden (scientist, archaeologist, Oxford, English, 60+) founder of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Fossils, Humankind, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 200 discussion topics.
The group discusses the world’s great mysteries including how life and humans, religion and faith, and everything else began.
Try visiting, and enjoy the discussions.
