The importance of being effective

Who could ever believe in a deity who created all the huge things in the entire universe AND is also watching all the little things you’re doing in your bedroom?
Seems the deity doesn’t quite know how to set priorities here.

Out of time

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on April 24, 2010

Today, when I was shitting in the toilet, I had quite a marvellous idea.
I don’t think time exists. At least: not in the way we percieve it.
For example: we sometimes ask: what was there BEFORE the universe came into being? The latest reply is that it’s quite possible a multiverse exists and that we are only one of many. Our universe may even have come about because of two different universes colliding, and therefore the collision of two different sets of laws-of-physics.
This makes me think that the nature of our universe and the nature of time as we know it, is not a definate.
We might never be able to test this hypothisis, since we and our instruments are made up of a  certain mass, weight, energy and… time. We cannot step outside of our own linear time.
This is another thing: if time DOES exist, perhaps time is not linear at all. It may be repetitive or spiral shaped.
In quantum physics we’ve found out that there are particles who can be in a different location at exactly the same time. But what if that ‘exactly the same time’ is not the same time at all? I’d like to see astronomists, physists and mathmeticians putting that into their equations and something beautiful might come out.
If time is not linear, our universe has no beginning or end. And that means we could be living in an infinitely small unmeasarable segment of time.

And if there is no beginning, there is no creation or creator either.

The unbearable ant theory

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 8, 2010

If all things are made from atoms, i.e. the same particles, would we be able to construct a living ant out of correctly placed marbles?

Since atoms mostly contain empty space, it would quite possibly require a marble construction the size of our galaxy.
Hm… Perhaps we are already living in a giant ant model?

God is just plagiarizing

The earth is fantastic, let’s acknowledge that and give some credit to the universe. It’s all selfmade. God is just plagiarizing.

Ghostly science

I don’t believe in ghosts. They could exist, but only as just some kind of quantum mechanic anomaly that will pretty soon be explained through the superstring theory.

Passion

I am never bored. Everything is fascinating. I thank evolution for my lovely brain.
