["Biblical scientific foreknowledge"]

Impossibility of a Grand Unified Theory

Billions of dollars and millions of hours have been wasted by atheists in futile pursuit of a "grand unified theory" for physics. But Genesis explains that the creation of light was done in a separate, initial creation, free of darkness or entropy, and thus incapable of unification with matter.

Good. Now how about some practical applications or explanations about why light behaves both like a particle and a wave. Scientists are trying to figure this out. I somehow doubt Schlafly has thought this through.

Andy,Andy,Andy
You are getting crazier, seek professional help quickly.
They are called physicists, not atheists. Also there were two creations? That will be news to the Bible literalists.

Oh Andy, that's so sweet. You knowing fuck all about anything but still having your say anyway.

Light isn't matter? So photons are made of ... what?

Andy is drifting into the realm of Cassiterides there. Pretty soon, it will be all eye beams and such.

Um, forgive me, but isn't light (electromagnetic force) one of the forces we *don't* have a problem with?

It's gravity that's the bitch. All the others are equivalent.

Is it me, or are the themes of this paragraph an excessive non-sequitur, even by Schlafly's standards? Does he honestly think that the pursuit of a Grand Unified Theory is only concerned with how light behaves? I'm no physicist, but this isn't even a gross oversimplification of the concept. It's like pointing to a spider and saying, here's a list of extrasolar planets we've discovered.

So what; all matter has darkness and entropy?

Btw, where did that light come from, what was the source? And if there already was light, why create the sun a few days later?

I'd make a pot of coffee, but this still won't make sense.

Light and matter have already been "unified", the equivalence of mass and energy has been known for over a century.

Sadly, your head is still in the 1600s rather than the 1900s, so we have another 300 years to wait for you to catch up.

Shut up you tool.

You aren't as intelligent as you think you are. Dunning-Kruger effect, anyone?

Until we find a grand unified theory, then you will discover it was in the bible all along.
And you will add it to your consevative bible.

@David B.

But the equivalence of mass and energy comes from Einstein's Theory of Relativity, which is a liberal plot.

Seriously. He actually believes that.

Since Schlafly explicitly rejects Einstein, most likely he also rejects nuclear fusion as well--the single most glaring proof that this statement of his is dead wrong.

As an electrical engineer, I am constantly trying to figure out exactly how Andy was able to garner a degree in electrical engineering if he was this bat-shit crazy back in the day.

Seriously. If I espoused some of the loony statements ol' Andy has made, they'd politely ask me to leave the school and take up something less intellectually challenging.

"Like selling used cars in downtown Charlotte."

So when they discover the Grand Unified Theory will you finally shut up? For good? Also, since when has light been a problem? It's gravity that's the oddball and several other observations of Quantum Theory also contradict Classical Physics and most make absolutely no intuitive sense.

Well that settles it then. How silly of us to trust our own senses and reason when the answer was written in Genesis all along.

How do you KNOW that a unified theory will never be found, Schlafly?

Also, light is energy, and Einstein says energy is the same as matter. I guess you weren't kidding when you said you deny relativity.

Philbert McAdamia

Let me see if I have this right - light and darkness have nothing to do with each other, and there were two initial creations, both at the same time, both in a magical tie for first place. And this makes sense, and is explained in the book. Oh yeah, and at the same time, isn't.
Boy, this god guy really can have things whatever way he wants.

All that is in existence is made of ENERGY! Matter is an illusion, just very dense concentrations of energy.

The Fly's brain, on the other hand, is made of tapioca pudding.

Where's that swatter?....

So let's scrap all this crazy atheistic science which has brought us so far and instead rely on ancient scribblings of superstitious goat herders to get our understanding of how the universe works. I think it's just about time for another Dark Age. If everybody had a life expectancy in their 30's again, it would do something about the overpopulation problem.

I hate to say it, but I'm almost feeling sorry for Andy these days. I mean, here he is displaying his mental illness on the internet instead of getting the help he so desperately needs.

Hmm...how many billions have been spent on religion in an attempt to keep people ignorant, afraid & feel guilt?

Oh well if Genesis says so I guess we should all just stop asking questions.
