"You know, you come from nothing, you're going back to nothing. What have you lost? Nothing!"
Now I guess one of the big questions that sits inside my head, is why did the universe begin 15 billion years ago? What made that time in the past so special, as to be the beginning point? What caused the big bang to ignite? Now some people are going to want to invoke god as the mystical power behind the start of the universe, but even if god did start the big bang (which is a fantasy), it was not inevitable that you were the result of it. In other words the universe did not start to make you, you were just a happy little accident. Since god is a man made fiction, why did the universe begin when it did? I really do not know.
I came across this site http://www.the-origin.org/ whilst I was perusing the net and it's very interesting. He seems to be suggesting that the universe sprang from nothing. Something from nothing. I wrote to the owner, asking why I had never heard of his work before and this was his response:
"There are two reasons why my work has received so little attention:
1 - It is a threat to the various "Standard Models", of the structure of matter, of cosmology, etc. that the various physics communities have adopted and defend. I ask questions and point out problems that make them uncomfortable.
2 - I don't have the establishment credentials of having gotten a PhD in one of the "standard" physics points of view.
No one has confronted my work; no one has found any fault with it; they just ignore it.
I have tried as much as I can by publishing scientific papers, by giving presentations at scientific meetings [not "main stream" ones because they are the "ignorers" and won't give me a chance] and by placing copies of my book at major national and academic libraries around the world.
It's just that, whatever they are supposed to be, establishment scientists are not objective seekers of truth but ardent defenders of their academic / financial position in the system."
As a former parapsychologist, I understand the fickleness of academic science. I'd be interested in hearing other people's opinion about this site or the problem of why there is something here, instead of nothing.Go Top
