    Science Assaults The Bible Again: Black Holes and Our Universe

    Could the new theory explain away the Bible stories once and for all? If the Big Bang can be explained by this, what does it mean for the wild and crazy idea that a great and all knowing supernatural being created man in his own image and created the world in 7 days?

    For example, the big bang theory says the universe started as a singularity. But scientists have no satisfying explanation for how such a singularity might have formed in the first place.
    If our universe was birthed by a white hole instead of a singularity, Poplawski said, "it would solve this problem of black hole singularities and also the big bang singularity."

    Every Black Hole Contains Another Universe?

    Bible Thumpers, be scared. Be very scared. Science is knocking on your doors.

    Your idiocy is expanding.

    Just because someone postulates that every black hole is another universe does not mean that anyone actually believes this, including the guy who postulated it. This does not even rise to the level of scientific theory, and it falls way short of proving anything.

    doesn't this kind of get into string theory, with parallel universes and all that? I remember watching a video about this stuff, and it was saying that as one universe is expanding another is contracting, like squeezing the middle of a water balloon. of course it's all on a time-scale we can't comprehend.

    I look at most of the bible like Aesop's fables; good lessons that are wrapped in hyperbole and metaphor, not a science textbook.

    I think it's pretty obvious that primative man made up gawds and spirits to exlain things that he did't understand.

    As man became more modern, he stopped believing in the "Gawd of the melon" and the "Gawd of the tree bark" and soon, dropped the number of gawds down to one. Only for Christianity it's actually three. They say they have one gawd, but it's actually an old gawd, a magic bird, and a young gawd who may or may not be his own father.

    Any and all theory that tries to explain the universe is an assault on religion. That is nothing new.

    Interesting theory however. The problem i have with it is that if there are black hole "outlets" there must be white hole "inlets" into this universe. That will be hard for them to explain. This theory for me works with string theory.

    "According to a mind-bending new theory, a black hole is actually a tunnel between universes—a type of wormhole."

    he's not talking about comparative religion. try dealing with what he's actually saying.'


    gawd, you're an infantile nitwit. If you're going to criticize his post for their context try learning to spell correctly in your content.
