    Your Wednesday astrophysics brain meltdown:

    "Big Bang Was Actually a Phase Change, New Theory Says"

    http://www.space.com/17217-big-bang-...ge-theory.html

    "a team of physicists says the Big Bang should be modeled as a phase change: the moment when an amorphous, formless universe analogous to liquid water cooled and suddenly crystallized to form four-dimensional space-time, analogous to ice."

    And her response:

    I just read that article this morning. It's an interesting theory, and is actually testable. They just have to figure out how big those cracks should be and how far apart they should be, because if they are small and close together, we may not have the technology to figure it out.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right......

    you know you can get the same effect by taking LSD
    Whenever the legislators endeavour to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience, and are left to the common refuge which God hath provided for all men against force and violence - John Locke

    This never gets old for me:

    Occam's razor (also written as Ockham's razor, Latin lex parsimoniae) is the law of parsimony, economy or succinctness. It is a principle urging one to select from among competing hypotheses that which makes the fewest assumptions.

    Christian Thought: Genesis 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

    Scientific Thought: The dust did it all by itself.

    You make the call.

    We used to think that the world was flat.
    Now that we are enlightened, we think that space is cracked.
