Quote# 2956

It makes me wonder about Einstein's theory of E=MC2, why that is still a theory although it has proven itself time and again. Does the Big Bang theory have the kind of staying power to be tested endlessly and not falter? I think it will remain a theory and never be proven because for us to test this theory, we would have to create our own Big Bang.

people like you are the reason it's still a theory

So when are you going to test creation?

3/20/2008 11:26:31 PM


Also, our own Big Bang is being worked on.

If we pack enough nuclear material up enough Christian asses and ignite it all at once, maybe we CAN create a Big Bang!

Reasonable questions, actually.

Actually, you see there's that big turtle, and the whole world stands on its back. And when it meets other big turtles and finds the one of the opposite sex... well you know. After that you get a lot of new worlds.

Theory: an organized system of accepted knowledge that applies in a variety of circumstances to explain a specific set of phenomena

What you are thinking of is:

Hypothesis: a concept that is not yet verified but that if true would explain certain facts or phenomena

You know, if you're going to accept that E=MC2 has been proven, you have to accept that evolution has been proven, because they've had the same methodology applied to them. Refusing to accept one is just as ridiculous as refusing to accept the other.

People should probably spend some time learning the difference between 'theory' and 'hypothesis'.

E=mc^2 is still a 'theory' in the same way germ 'theory' is still theoretical.

Theory. You keep on using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.

Dearie, it doesn't become a theory until it has been proven.
You're thinking of hypotheses, silly.

Whereas Christianity has no evidences but is to be completely believed and one must commit to that belief absolutely.

Don't believe in the Big Bang then, who cares, it's not for the likes of you or me for that matter. If either of us looked into the science of what they think is certain about the theory (which I suspect I'm the only one of us two who might be inclined) we wouldn't understand it anyway. At any rate, it effects our lives in no way.

But of course your point is that we (physicists anyway) should stop looking for answers. This puts you in the same camp as your church bretheren from the past who stoked fear and distrust over damn near every scientific advancement EVER.
