Continuing on with my series of Electric Universe posts, I will be covering the religious aspects of cosmology.
When posting on EU theory, often the first comments to be made come from devout atheists decrying EU theory as nothing more than "intelligent
design" in sheep's clothing. I am here to dispel those claims as a bunch of nonsense and point out the hypocrisy of such claims by so-called
Let me begin by saying I have no beef with religion. Of course, everyone is free to believe in whatever God or gods they so choose. Lord knows we all
need a little psychological support in these troubling times. I am personally an agnostic on the whole matter, I stick to the facts and let the chips
fall where they may. Theology is best left to priests.
Speaking of priests, lets start with a little background on the big bang theory. As you may or may not know, the big bang as a theory was first
proposed by a catholic priest, Georges Lemaître, in 1927. Lemaître's intent was to come up with a theory that could tie theology and science
together. Lemaître came along with his ideas of a big bang (otherwise known as fiat lux, let there be light) right around the time Edwin Hubble made
his famous discovery that galaxy redshifts appeared to be correlated to their magnitude (observed brightness), lending credence to the claims of an
When the pope heard about this, he thought it was marvelous - science proving religion. Pope Pius XII announced that ‘everything seems to indicate
that the universe has in finite times a mighty beginning’. He went on to claim that unprejudiced scientific thinking indicated that the universe is
a ‘work of creative omnipotence, whose power set in motion by the mighty fiat pronounced billions of years ago by the Creating Spirit, spread out
over the universe.’ To be fair, he did also admit that ‘the facts established up to the present time are not an absolute proof of creation in
We now know that while galactic red shifts in light may be indicative of their distance from us, the claims of expanding space, velocity
induced redshift, and all other manner of "big bangery" is highly questionable. A primary falsifier of the "red shift = distance" claim is that
quasar red shift does NOT correlate to their observed magnitude. Indeed there is a plethora of data calling the claims of a big bang into
Let us define the word "faith" as taken from the Bible Dictionary:
Faith is in general the persuasion of the mind that a certain statement is true (Phil. 1:27; 2 Thess. 2:13). Its primary idea is trust. A thing is
true, and therefore worthy of trust. It admits of many degrees up to full assurance of faith, in accordance with the evidence on which it rests. Faith
is the result of teaching (Rom. 10:14-17). Knowledge is an essential element in all faith, and is sometimes spoken of as an equivalent to faith
(John 10:38; 1 John 2:3). Yet the two are distinguished in this respect, that faith includes in it assent, which is an act of the will in addition to
the act of the understanding.
Ladies and gentleman, I submit to you that the standard theory of cosmology requires more "faith" than belief in a God.
Black holes are invisible. They can not be seen, detected, tested for, or verified by any means known to man. They are, by their very definition, an
object of faith. There is no more evidence to suggest black holes exist than there is to suggest a multi-dimensional God reaches into our universe and
stirs the galaxy with an invisible hand. Both claims are equally indefensible as both claims rest on nothing more than the hypothetical. A closer look
at black holes shows us the foundational physics behind them is a corruption of science, one that Einstein himself completely disagreed with.
Dark energy, dark flows, dark matter, god particles, etc.. etc.. are of the same vein. Religious faith is required to accept these as being real.
Nothing but a mathematicians notebook using hypothetical physics that are untestable in the real world props up these theories. The new high priests
wear white coats and carry calculators. They, like the mid evil catholic priests before them, claim "You are simply too dumb to understand. Trust me,
I have the knowledge." as they preach in Latin to the unwashed masses that can't understand a word of it. While at the same time absconding with
untold fortunes of the publics money building high tech temples and cathedrals costing billions to supposedly search for "the truth".
The CDMS project has never detected dark matter. The LIGO has never detected a gravitational wave. No particle accelerator has detected the "god
particle", which always seems to be just out of reach requiring ever bigger and more expensive accelerators to detect. The modern cathedrals of
science put the Vatican to shame, while the physics behind all of their theology is obtuse, abstract, hypothetical, and completely divested from
Ask any engineer if they use Einstein's field equations in calculating airfoils, structural integrity, electrical properties, x-ray physics, or any
other real world design or engineering problem and they will laugh at you. Even the nuclear scientists that brought us the atom bomb and nuclear power
plants didn't use any of Einstein's theories in the process. Nuclear chemistry gave us the atom bomb, not hypothetical physics. Einstein didn't
even believe fissioning of matter was possible at a time before the Manhattan Project was undertaken. The space program entirely revolves around
Newtonian physics in its rocketry and satellite positioning, not Einstein's relativities. There's a good reason for this. Hypothetical theory is
not the real world.
Faith is believing in black holes. Faith is believing in dark matter. Faith is believing in multiple dimensions. Faith is believing in stars that
are made out of matter so dense it violates known laws of nuclear chemistry as they supposedly spin on their axis thousands of times per second.
Faith is believing that the Sun is a giant nuclear furnace while its surface is only 6000K yet its corona is 2 million K.
So lets look at what Electric Universe cosmology preaches by comparison. - continued.
