Hm, could god have formed from anti matter? :-)

Jerry Critter said...

Boy! That's a lot of stuff to happen in only 6000 years. (Neil got the time wrong. Just ask the fundies.)

Shaw Kenawe said...

Jerry, LOL!

RN, Humans have been forming gods from everything since we branched off from the great apes.

Don't know if any deities were formed of anti-matter, but Tea Baggers sure are.

I have to admit I don't understand the concept of the four basic forces originally being unified and then splitting apart -- nor most of the discussion in that early part of the video. (When it comes to science, I'm basically a biology guy.) But I'm very glad we have people who do understand those things.

As for those who wave away all this and insist that everything was created in some childishly simple way by a magic man in the sky, followed by even sillier drivel about a talking snake and a woman made from a rib, they're a disgrace to the hard work of generations of thinkers who brought us as far as we've come.

Wow! That was amazing! Love Neil's work!

Jerry Critter said...

No, deities were not created from anti-matter. They were created from the Stupid.

Rational Nation USA said...

There are many intelligent folks that believe in a supreme being Jerry. Or put another way it isn't just Tea Party folks and stupids who belive in a this stuff.

Infidel753 said...

RN: But the belief itself is still stupid.

Rational Nation USA said...

For us it is, to the intelligent believer it is not. For many it is a help and comfort. I know this first hand as both my father and sister are educated and highly intelligent. Belief has in their case been a positive, even life saving support.

Sometimes Infidel753 it simply is what it is.

Jerry Critter said...

Your right. RN. The intelligent and compassionate people have a god that is intelligent and compassionate. They use that God for good.

The stupid people have a god that is controlling and vengeful. They use that god to justify evil and control of others.

Rational Nation USA said...

Thank you Jerry. You hit the nail on it's head.
