    Don't know what the schools will do; it'll take a while to get this confirmed and accepted by other physicists...and then a while longer to get it into the textbooks...and by then, they'll have come up with another theory on the origin of the universe....

    BUT -- you'll notice how this one more closely resembles the Genesis record....

    People who think that science is still about discovering "God's Laws" and do not understand that science "evolves" and that scientists teach the latest best guess should stick to teaching their children about religion and skip the science lessons.

    Or we could just stick with scripture like God said to do.

    Amen to that and we know that "science" books are always needing to be updated but scripture is forever and needs no update.

    Me too...

    And I was more than just a little disappointed to see that it was really about some scientific theory instead. :laugh:

    The existence of gravity is also being debated now. Sigh.

    Maybe science, like theology, should be left to the experts. When the blind leads the blind then they both fall into the pit.

    The problem with that is that science bleeds over into theology and vice versa. We need to be very careful of who we allow to change our perception of reality, especially when it contradicts Scripture. Both science and God's Word need proper interpretation, and motives also play an important role.

    And also when it doesn't??????

    Did God create a "real" physical world or do we only exist in the mind of God? Job 2 infers that this world is like a computer game between God and Satan. Take the blue pill? <G>

    Yes, Bill, we should be carefulof who we allow to change us.
    And I suggest that the Lord be our guide.
    Are we in a "real" physical world - lets see, if I were to stick you with a large pin......

    For those interested in the article, the idea proposed by the physicists from the University of Melbourne are not refuting the Big Bang theory but looking at it from a different perspective.

    Instead of seeing it geometrically as a singular point in time and space where the universe began, they are proposing that the initiation is more like the crystallization that occurs when water becomes ice. They have the same premise that there was an initial event when time and space began and the universe is still expanding and cooling as it does so. And it is still a remarkably close model to creation ex-nihilo.

    Also, scientific models are always meant to be changed and refined as new evidence comes to light. That is how science works.

    Exactly right. A new HYPOTHESIS that has to be examined, but does not invalidate anything, but adds new information if it is proven out.

    Then it is unreliable and cannot be trusted.

    Well, you trust that there are 4 Gospels because there are 4 corners of the earth and 4 winds, yes?

    This shows a total lack of knowledge about science. If you don't trust it, refuse all vaccinations, quit using all modern fruits of science including your computer, and live like the Amish.
