Big Bang Fudge Factors
The big bang model, used to describe the observations made in the universe, according to its advocates, now precisely has determined the history of the Universe. See left graphic. Yet to do so it is filled with unproveable fudge factors. That may sound like an exaggerated claim but it seems to be the state of […]
Seeing God in the Big Bang?
Here I review an article originally published in “Chinese Today.” The English translation of the article appears below with my comments (in brown) interspersed. Seeing God in the Big Bang Tai L.

Historically the Universe was once believed to be finite. Finite means its volume is a finite number. Also the biblical view is and was that the Universe was created approximately some 4000 years before the birth of Christ. Psalms 147:4 declares, “He [God] tells the number of the stars; He [God] calls them all by […]

Chinese characters, ideograms, can be formed from radicals which themselves are pictograms, which have their own individual meanings. The characters forming the word ‘boat’ are as follows:1,2 vessel eight people 1. The Discovery […]
This is my response after reading an online article about the purported discovery of dark matter: A theorist has an idea about the mixing (coupling) of dark matter axions with normal matter through an S/N/S junction. Firstly, the axion is a theorized particle in the WIMP (Weakly Interacting Massive Particle) category but this expected particle with […]
1) Where did the Universe come from? Man puts all his faith in cosmology to answer this fundamental question. But cosmology is not even science, it is just philosophy. This has meant that man has had to invent fudge factors to make his theories work, such as the totally-just-made-up stuff called Dark Energy, Dark Matter, […]
You get up in the morning and go to work or school. But everywhere around you screams “there is no ultimate reason” to do so. The universe began in some random explosion, from the quantum fluctuation of nothing, some Big Bang we are told. Over billions of years stars formed and exploded building the elements […]
