Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Apropos nothing at all, this is probably my favourite use of the word "bollocks".

10^-34th of a second following the start of the event. Prior to that time the very laws that enable us to understand this universe did not exist
Whether you are sorry or not there is a difference between not understanding how an event happened and a paradox.

Paradox

noun
1. a statement or proposition that seems self-contradictory or absurd but in reality expresses a possible truth.
2. a self-contradictory and false proposition.
3. any person, thing, or situation exhibiting an apparently contradictory nature.
4. an opinion or statement contrary to commonly accepted opinion

There is nothing contradictory, false or absurd and therefore not a paradox, The logic of mathematics used to theorise the event contradict nothing. However you would no doubt have been correct until Dr Param Singh invented the mathematics that resolved the problems of infinities. Perhaps you are out of date or perhaps you use the wrong word? I don’t know, I don’t do too well at reading minds.

Human knowledge increases, that is the nature of the human mind and of course the reason for science. Because there is a limit now does not mean that limit will stand next Thursday. Only in the last couple of years has the current limit been pushed back to 10^-34 of a second after the event.

It can get difficult figuring just where the dreaming actually started.

The seed makes the root, the root makes the stalk, the stalk makes the branch, the branch makes the bud, the bud makes the fruit, the fruit makes the seed. All following the same laws. In a garden, or in the wild.
But none of them grow unless they get nourishment. Garden varieties are tended to, wild ones have to reach out for it.
There is a message in there.
Yes - a message that you are still safely tucked up in davesworld. The universe is not a fruit or nut, no current theories imagine it as a fruit or a nut, as far as I know there has been no historical consensus that the universe is a fruit or a nut.

HI dave, ca va?

Rather belatedly I hope you had a good winter break.
