Robert Fleming replied to Mike K.'s discussion Speculative Cosmology: The Megaverse Idea.
"Not only are there real physicists that see a multiverse as possible but some are among the most preeminent of our time. Suskind is a huge name as is Guth. Witten is by far the world's leading string theorist, today's Einstein. Some…"

Robert Fleming replied to Rusty Gunn.'s discussion The Problem of Monozygotic Twins.
"LOL Any view that there is a soul (in the religious spooky sense) leads to logical contradictions; but that one is funny. I like to ask these things to believers that question my atheism. A favourite is" "If God is all knowing, past,…"

Robert Fleming replied to Roy The Infidel's discussion The Father Of The Big Bang Theory Is A Jesuit Priest
"At this time the big bang is a very viable model, and by far the most accepted. That is not to say that there are no alternatives. Paul Steinhardt and Neil Turok proposed a theory where an oscillating field replaces dark energy and inflation. The…"

Robert Fleming replied to Roy The Infidel's discussion The Father Of The Big Bang Theory Is A Jesuit Priest
"It is interesting that so many of the counter big bang arguments (fallacies) come from creationists. Even Fred Hoyle who did great work on stellar nucleosynthesis and promoted the steady state theory was a “creationist”. The so called…"

Robert Fleming replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?

Robert Fleming replied to Howard S. Dunn's discussion The Bible as literature
""My last statement may have been irrefutably obvious, but even atheists can embue it with more than is there - giving it power they should attribute to those who believe it is the word of god." Yes, it is just a book! A jumble of ancient…"

Robert Fleming replied to Roy The Infidel's discussion The Father Of The Big Bang Theory Is A Jesuit Priest

Robert Fleming replied to thedogma's discussion Did Einstein believe in God?

Robert Fleming replied to Roy The Infidel's discussion The Father Of The Big Bang Theory Is A Jesuit Priest
"Quantum mechanics try to avoid this problem by saying that causality applies in some parts of the world, but not everywhere. Like at “the very deepest level”. So where do they perform their experiments? In the causal part or the…"

Wow. Another atheist from Sudbury?

I Googled "atheist Sudbury" thinking there would be a humanist association in town or something. I guess not.

Anyways, nice to know there's at least one other atheist in Sudbury.

Hi and a friendly welcome to Robert Fleming from Ontario.
We are pleased to meet you here among the sensible, rational people of this world.

This is the great Nexus meeting place with its thousands of bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and brainwashing fraud that it is---
and that gods exist only as fictions inside people's heads.

Terry Meaden
originator of the busy lively discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its over 240 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
