Big Bang and Multiverses...

This is big, really Very Big. Of course there will be the naysayers (socon fundies are likely), but, as science continues to push the envelope of knowledge it will be ever more difficult to hold on to those myths humans have created for themselves.



WGBN - It’s being called one of the biggest scientific discoveries in history. Over the weekend, the theory of “inflation,” described as the “smoking gun” of the Big Bang, was proven. Inflation was theorized by physicists Alan Guth and Andrei Linde back in the 1970s. Guth now teaches just down the road at MIT, and Linde works at Stanford.

A big hat tip goes to my brother. Thanks bro! This rocks...

UPDATE:

In the interest of fair and balanced we are providing a bit of Creationism, please click on the highlighted link. Perhaps a bit off the Multiverse concept and topic but giving the creationists equal time here at Rational Nation USA is our goal. When the creationists come out with their response to Mutiverses we'll be sure to run it for em.

  1. Sort of intriguing, the equal time wanted by creationists. We suppose they would be open to
    Christopher Hitchens teaching Sunday School and hour-long sermons by Richard Dawkins?
    (Even Pat Robinson conceded the 6000 yr old earth concept was untenable by common sense
    and "makes us look stupid")

  2. Mr. Shaw Kenawe received his degree in physics at MIT and knows Alan Guth.

    1. Very cool!

      I just wished I understood all the complexities of this better. It is really exciting.

  3. Yeah, I don't think that this is going to prominently displayed at that Creationist Museum down there in Tennessee any time soon.

  4. Carl Sagan would have loved it. Not sure how "septillions and septillions" would come out compared to the deep base "Billions and Billions".
