Those seven quoted words, together with America's religiosity during the 1920s, explain the battle between two models of the universe, the gravitational (Big Bang, or BB) model and the electric universe (EU) model. Continue

As a recent series of events have led me to open my mind to the concept of no god. Something amazing yet very strange feeling happened inside of me. My entire life I have found beauty and joy in "Gods Creations" but something was holding me back, and I didn't know what? My feelings of wonder could be expressed in the song 'how great thou art' but there was a limit to my wonder. Let me explain!
The concepts of God and wonder have an odd relationship. While believing I thought only of… Continue

In 1935, Einstein and two colleagues published a paper that set off what has become close to a century of theorizing and research about entanglement phenomena.
The paper came to be known as EPR from the initials of the last names of its authors – and while they may not… Continue

Magic and magic, what do they have in common? Perhaps I should clarify. What do prolific supernatural beliefs have in common with conjuring tricks? Continue
In between study, I work as a close-up magician, performing at weddings, coorporate dinners, birthday parties and other such events. My passion for creating illusion has led me to perform for thousands of people, and to spend countless hours in front of the mirror, fiddling with cards, and studying the techniques and psychology of magic.…

I really like to just think. Let your mind go and let the thoughts flow through your mind. Continue
I also do this to help me go to sleep. It's hard to explain what happens, it's like I release
control of my thinking process and my mind starts going "What if this", "What if this",
"What if this", "What if this", "What if this", "What if this", then maybe a good thought
comes through and I say whoa, lets think about that for awhile. This may sound crazy
but its worked for me…

Quantum Mechanics, which is the study of the smallest elements and forces of matter and how they react and interact and create all that we know
All things are made up of Atoms both living and nonliving all matter is made up of Atoms. But now we know that an Atom isn’t the smallest thing in our universe of reality. We also know that electromagnetic force, or light hold electrons and protons together in Atom and which hold Atoms together to make molecules.

I'm a materialist, so let's not get confused. I'm an atheist, and this is all hypothetical musings, not meant to convince anyone that the supernatural exist. So, no misunderstandings that fly oh so freely on the internet please. No long comments explaining to me that until there is proof of the supernatural I should reject the claim of one; I know this. Next on my house-keeping list, I'm going to be getting into hard areas to speculate on; I realize I set up what is likely false dichotomies,… Continue

I wanted to take a moment before everyone gets involved in their personal, real life.Thanksgiving Day endeavors to say I'm just plain ol' thankful; for nothing in particular but everything and everyone everywhere... and because I woke up again this morning, to appreciate all of this.
We all have a lot to be thankful for and so much that we take for
granted. Our biggest worries might be hoping there will be enough chairs to… Continue

I worked this out before I realised that this hypothesis had already been presented. This is my version of it.
NOTE: I use the word "creation" in this, but what I mean by creation is the beginning of time.
Everything was here. Well, it didn't have to be created, since outside the Universe there is no Time nor Space. No dimensions, just a lot of nothingness. But not even empty space. No elements, no…

The father of black holes stated plainly in last night's recent episode, "Did the universe begin by divine intervention? Not necessarily." His narrative went on to discuss why our universe supports life. Basically, he proposed there were countless numbers of universes possible. Some may be based on silicon lifeforms, others may have no gravity and therefore no life exists, still others may have no means of hydrogen fusion and also result in a lifeless void. Our universe has evolved to… Continue

Beliefs in gods is as old as civilization as is religion. But is the belief in god(s) and religion necessary? Does it benefit society or does it harm society? It is my belief that a belief in god(s)… Continue

With proof of our hundred billion+ galaxy Universe, how can anyone deny the existence of aliens being an extremely high possibility, almost an undeniable truth when we look at the scientific facts? All signs say that somewhere, out there, they exist. But then people can turn around and believe in an invisible sky god with no proof whatsoever? Devoting their lives to it? How is THIS the majority!?!
The thought that this unimaginably huge Universe was created just for us humans offends… Continue

Cliffs Notes: Could the possibility of a fundamental resolution to the universe explain dark matter/energy?

I have to tell the world about this: I just saw the weirdest thing ever!!!!
But first some critical analysis for what was a seeming culmination of supernatural phenomenon. The event:
at approximately 10:40 this evening, February 19 (pacific time) a white utility truck (?) drove up the street with it's lights blaring in the surrounding darkness and the diver unscrewed the cap to a yellow hydrant, releasing all the water gushing out in to the road. That is weird right? A… Continue

For just a moment, let’s run with the idea that life as we know it was designed by some higher intelligence which put together the basic chemistry for life in an organized and stable form at some time in the ancient past. Would it still have to comply with the laws of nature? How does one prove it in a scientific way? And how does the existence of countless other worlds make it incalculably tougher to prove that there's only one designer in the universe?
