Dennis Smith replied to Smitty's discussion An often used argument for the existence of God is simply "where did matter come from?" What do you think? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"The answer is, "I don't know" where matter came from. That does not mean that the positing of a deity is necessary. it's okay not to know. Sam Harris makes this point clearly and often."

Smitty replied to Marc Draco's discussion Will America ever learn? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Mr. Marc. I don't think you've ever been robbed or held at gun point by someone who has the law completely out of their mind. It was at that moment that I promised myself to be protected from the crazy people out in the world. If one is…"

Geoff Wakefield replied to Smitty's discussion An often used argument for the existence of God is simply "where did matter come from?" What do you think? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I often wonder why people feel that they absolutely have to know the answer to this question when it may well be that we will never be able to know it, if indeed, there even is an answer. And let's suppose, just for the sake fo argument, that…"

Joseph P replied to Smitty's discussion An often used argument for the existence of God is simply "where did matter come from?" What do you think? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I dunno about your time line, man.  Given the exponential rate of knowledge growth, when not held back by a fundamentalist religion ... 500 years is a damned long time to say we'll learn almost nothing.   I'd also disagree that…"

Navin Johnson replied to Smitty's discussion An often used argument for the existence of God is simply "where did matter come from?" What do you think? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"First, this is a fun topic as everyone adds their own ingredient(s) to the soup and you end up with a lot of things to think about. But, humans are very arrogant, in my opinion, to believe we will ever have the definate answer to this question. If…"

Stephan Vladimir Bugaj replied to Smitty's discussion An often used argument for the existence of God is simply "where did matter come from?" What do you think? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Precisely.   And additionally, the reasoning that basically states "I don't understand how that works, so it must be magical" is also flawed.  It is quite a jump to a conclusion to state that complete ignorance ("I…"

"Yeah, freaking ludicrous and beyond our ability to really get our minds around, in anything but pure numbers."

Park Bierbower replied to Smitty's discussion An often used argument for the existence of God is simply "where did matter come from?" What do you think? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"yeah, if i remember the density is equal to one teaspoon=1 billion tons.  Also read that an object dropped at a height of 1 meter would impact at 4.3 million miles an hour~ didn't do the math, but seems somewhat correct."

Joseph P replied to Smitty's discussion An often used argument for the existence of God is simply "where did matter come from?" What do you think? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Here's one issue I can see with your statement about fusion creating the heaviest possible elements.  There are Neutron stars.  They're less dense than black holes and more dense than atomic matter. What happens is that a star…"

John Jubinsky replied to Smitty's discussion An often used argument for the existence of God is simply "where did matter come from?" What do you think? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Per the article: "....We believe this happens in nature near pulsars and neutron stars," said Igor Sokolov..."

"Of course the type of NOTHING we are talking about would be absent our current interstellar vacuum, as the vacuum is still itself space-time."

John Secular Smith replied to Smitty's discussion An often used argument for the existence of God is simply "where did matter come from?" What do you think? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Matter is not infinite, nor eternal.  It didn't always exist, and there is a limited amount of it.  Perhaps the dual matter-energy pair has always existed, but that can not be proven currently."

"Indeed it is...hence what we know as the universe is only the OBSERVABLE universe...the rest of it is receding so fast we'll never see it."

"<i>Physics has to have always existed.</i>   Not necessarily.  The rules that allow this universe may very well be able to arise from nothing, or they could have existed forever.  As far as I know, there isn't enough…"

"  As mentioned in a previous post: Hawking: "... the universe has the capacity to create itself from nothing over and over again... "   Physics has to have always existed.   Gary  "
