Quote# 53090

I won't go into a big boring thing here....but I was studying the String Theory:

The Superstring theory is based on 10 or 11 dimensions. The Bosonic string theory has 26 dimensions. Gravity is the only real force in the theory. It says only four of the ten dimensions can be observed by us, and that the others hint at the other forces that are observed. It does not say that other physics theories are not true, or wrong.

String theory has led to advances in the mathematics of folding, knots and Calabi-Yau spaces.
this is from http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/String_theory ( I only posted that so people would know what I was talking about).

This whole thing went round in round in my head. I prayed about it. The next week I was reading Hebrews 1:8. It is talking about Jesus' ability to 'fold up the universe like a garment'.

Here was this supposing 'out of date' Bible totally describing something considered a part of the latest in physic theories. It was an incredible moment and caused quite a stir of discussion in class.

I'm not going into real detail on why this is so important....but if we could ONLY begin to grasp the fact that God isn't subject to our 3D world and time, it would explain so many things that perlexes us and cause us to lose faith.

God doesn't just love us from the 'outside'....He is totally interwoven with us.

So...does this mean Jesus had a Large Hadron Collider?

Hebrews 1 is about how the author (who probably wasn't Paul) believes he is living at the end of the world. He was wrong about that too.

You don't understand String theory. I don't understand string theory. Neither of us has a right to talk about it! Why do you insist on making a fool of yourself??

What, can't understand big words?

Hebrews 1:8

But to the Son He says:

“ Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.


What does this have to do with string theory?

Theres a simple English wikipedia?

I know dick all about String Theory, but I don't think that it works the way GloryB explained it...

Sigh...

Theres a simple English wikipedia?

Big words are of the devil so the fundies made a version for the homeschooled.

This whole thing went round in round in my head. I prayed about it.

I've got a dollar that says Jehovah failed to send you a detailed revelation about 11-dimensional spacetime. You'd have learned more with some extra online research.

I'm not going into real detail on why this is so important....

Then why did you bring it up?

...if we could ONLY begin to grasp the fact that God isn't subject to our 3D world and time...

Santa Claus, a man who travels the world in the span of one night, bringing presents to every good child, isn't subject to 4-dimensional restrictions either.

Big words are of the devil so the fundies made a version for the homeschooled.

I learn English and I think it is a good ressource if your grasp on English isn't good or you just want to get a quick summary of a topic. It is not a fundie concept though. If you think it is fundie read their article on evolution!

In other news: Fundie, what are the NEXT things the bible will say about physics? You don't know? Too bad, it's almost as if it can only `predict' things after they happened with it. ;)

Liar. Hebrews 1:8 says no such thing...

"But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom."

"God doesn't just love us from the 'outside'....He is totally interwoven with us"

Sounds a bit pantheistic to me and therefore would be a heresy to a "True Christian"

That's because the Bible says the sky is like a sheet of fabric with the stars attached to it, and that it has doors

Fucking clueless fool. You have mixed your woefully inadequate knowledge of string theory with your crackpot sky fairy voodoo and come up with nonsense.

Still, I suppose you can get some sense of achievement out of that...

Don't forget the 'windows of heaven' from Genesis.

It's a rather strange coincidence that all these scientific facts in religious books are always found AFTER they have been found (or proposed) by scientists.

Jesus was the son of a woman named Mary, my mom's name is Mary, does that make me the Son of God? if so I declare all that show care for fellow humans shall be accepted into heaven, while those that use my supposed word as proof for your beliefs, though the one most often used is bullshit.

So, based on an incomplete and simplistic definition of a scientific theory in simplistic language and an equally simplistic understanding of your Wholly Babble, you purport to do what nobody else has has been able to do before and successfully marry science and religion?

Please pardon me while I laugh in your face.

Oh, and that little part about God not just loving us from the outside? Yeah, the way you so artfully avoided saying that God loves us from the inside just tickles me. From the inside. Where God is, you know, touching me in fun places.

Imroy: FYI I have dyslexia. The simple english wiki helps me grasp a concept before I use the full wiki. Please don't diss it ;)

As for this article, it just made me smirk. As for god is interwoven in us, that just opens a can of worms. xD

I think he/she was dissing the fact that GloryB was using just simple instead of using both. Like you apparently do.

Oh: Hebrews 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

The right passages:

1:11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
1:12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

Doesn't sound like theoretical physics to me... *scratches head*

Using Simple English Wikipedia is the last thing I'll fault this guy for. A lot of articles on specialized topics are pretty well incomprehensible if you don't have any experience in the field.

Reverend Jeremiah

This seems to be the fundy approach to science:

#1 - Brush it off; "That Large Hadron Collider is a big waste of money. All it is is a machine built by scientists who want to thumb their noses at god."
#2 - Demonize it; "That Hadron collider may just open up a rip in the space time continuum and allow the anti-christ to enter our world. This is what happens when scientists play god!"
#3 - Ignoring the results; "Those Higgs Boson's dont prove anything. They just made that crap up! I also heard that Higgs Boson denounced his findings and found faith in Jesus on his death bed!"
#4 - Integrating the results; "It is absolutely conclusive that not only do Higgs Boson's exist, but they also confirm God and the book of Genesis. Why did those scientists even waste their money? This obscure and generalized bible verse already had the answer they were looking for!"
