A short time ago, Scientific American asked me to take their magazine. I took the magazine for years but it go so esoteric that I would have had to go back to college to get the background for most of the articles. I had no intention of going through that again so I didn’t renew my subscription. However, Scientific American has a long memory and they kept pestering me. I decided to give it a try again thinking that I wouldn’t understand a darn thing but reading the magazine might keep my deteriorating old brain busy.
From one perspective, my article makes conventional physicists look like ‘a bunch of idiots and conmen’ for promulgating an incorrect theory for 100 years. This is what convention’s trying to avoid by ‘auto deleting’ the article.
Let’s look at black holes. Consider God and black holes. All galaxies have black holes. Our Milky Way galaxy apparently has many of them. The number of black holes in the universe might even be larger than the number of visible stars. To get a feeling for how intense a black hole is, to make a star into a black hole, you’d have to collapse the radius of our sun from 450,000 miles down to two miles, so it could pretty much fit in a small town, okay? Now a sun that had that kind of density would weigh more per teaspoon than Mount Everest does. That’s what a black hole would be.
Even a superficial understanding of Cosmology news and biology will show that it doesn’t make sense that the universe and complex life arose by mere chance. So if the universe and life didn’t happen by chance, the only other alternative was to conclude that God created the whole box and dice.
And people sometimes ask me, “How can you be so fascinated by violence when you espouse peace”? (many if you may be already familiar with my work in prisons with victims and perpetrators of violence).
(This brief summary is just scraping the surface of this intriguing topic. For further reading, ‘A Visa to Eternity’ covers the subject in much more detail).
Wealth 101 – Wealth is Much More Than Money by John-Roger & Peter McWilliams. This book is part of The Life 101 Series. I keep this book handy and have read it many times. It seems to find greater and greater meaning as you develop on a personal level. This book, as with all the books listed above, should be required reading in high school and college.
