Who observes the observer? Why not give the role to an entity we call 'something' because without an observer, there will be NOTHING literally.
One call it God or Allah. One may even call it Big Brother.(but that's because our society thinks that Big Sisters can't do it). lol
I always feel like somebodies watching me.

I lost track of you...but have found you again cause last post of a few days ago got deleted accidently do to bad connection...
Anyways so i'll start anew...
You cannot seperate 'creationism' from 'evolution'...
You are here...right?
So what makes you think 'God', a superior being to me and you, could not have under gone the same process say 1 billion years ago?
Or is life on earth the only life ever, that has been able to evolve...
It is the only life we know that has evolved. However, we can predict that life on other planets, if it exists, would evolve as well.

Creationism is the belief that the process of the creation of life from nothing was done by a superior being or beings or a giant turtle, or a lady in a lake or whatever you want. There are various creation mythes from cultures throughout time and around the world. They have no evidence to support them, but according to their adherents, they all happened just as they are reported.

Evolution is the change in living organisms over time resulting in new information and new species. It may be related to the origin of life, but it is apart from it and makes no predictions based on the origin of life. Evolution is driven by mutation, genetic drift, and the nonrandom process of natural selection. Evidence exists to support the process of evolution and it has been codified into a theory that is the basis for all modern biology.

I agree. The only thing you need is evidence.

Pretty much everyone is in agreement on that point. The question is about what if anything preceded that big bang creation event.
Something had to come before. Like if you believe in an all powerful God who created him?
Actually if the Observer Effect is true, then the Observer would not exist within the confines of space time...so the Observer would not be subject to birth and death...but would be infinite in nature.

and if you understand anything about relativity, then you know that you cannot have a finite without a infinite...

...and so Edison's remark about a "infinite intelligence" would stand to reason.

No, I don't think it does. If you define intelligence as a measurable quantity, then it must be finite, while stupidity, potentially having a measurable value of zero, would be a divide-by-0 value of infinity.

Just saying.

Now, if you consider the possibility of negative intelligence, you'll have to think with real numbers, but that might be assigning a bias to the term "intelligence", so really, it may be better to stop finding intelligence where there is none!.....other than in bad poetry!

IM, could you please explain your allusions to Star Trek?
I don't have a TV, so I haven't watched Star Trek very much.
And could you please explain how I'm stereotyping?
I thought that Christians believed in a book that says that God created man in his own image, and commanded man to have dominion over the earth.
One more question: are you trying to argue against Evolutionary theory by saying that I look like an extraterrestrial?
I don't see how that amounts to anything more than an ad hominem attack.
Your avatar just looky like a "trekky".

Simple enough?:-)

Latest news from CERN (the European org for nuclear research)

-------

It has been said that the operation is going to get closed for maintenance purposes. Experts known to the matter have affirmed that the LHC will resume working by 2015. Its revival will witness some more features added to the same, as it will witness rise in collision energy, rise in power.

Not only this, it has also been revealed that its luminosity will also be increased.

The particle, which is also known as God's Particle was made by the European Organization for Nuclear Research CERN.

Experts said that there is a reason for calling the particle to be God's Particle, as the discovery is said to the building block, which provides mass to any substance present in the universe....

....and though it raised a few eyebrows when the Higgs-like particle made the list of nominees for Person of the Year, in the video above Kluger deftly argues that the boson should at least be Particle of the Year. "Unless the Higgs could be found," he says, "[The Standard Model], one of the great edifices of physics, could come tumbling down.
