"In a single blinding pulse, a moment of glory much too swift and expansive for any form of words, the singularity assumes heavenly dimensions, space beyond conception. In the first lively second (a second that many cosmologists will devote careers to shaving into ever-finer wafers) is produced gravity and the other forces that govern physics. In less than a minute the universe is a million billion miles across and growing fast. There is a lot of heat now, ten billion degrees of it, enough to begin the nuclear reactions that create the lighter elements–principally hydrogen and helium, with a dash (about one atom in a hundred million) of lithium. In three minutes, 98 percent of all the matter there is or will ever be has been produced. We have a universe. It is a place of the most wondrous and gratifying possibility, and beautiful, too. And it was all done in about the time it takes to make a sandwich. "

    Simply beautiful.

    How can anyone look at these photos and think that we are the only beings?
    Oh I know, the bible.

      Because generation after generation have been indoctrinated in believing that we are somehow special and have a ‘purpose’

    • SlackerMcVee

      the bible makes no such claims, even the catholic church about two years ago said they are fine with finding life on other planets. I like to think that the bible is not supposed to be taken literally but was written to try to explain complex matters in ways that ancient man could try to understand. Evolution to me does not mean there is no god, evolution with dna mutations could be gods way to seed different life forums for all enviroments that exist. Just because one mutation became dominant on earth doesnt mean it would be on another planet.
