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.

So say's the idiot that has no clue what general relativity and event horizons mean.
If you think general relativity or event horizons involve physical infinity in any way whatsoever, you are the one who has no clue about it.

The war between Congress and the White House took a turn for the worse on Friday as House Republicans sought to prevent President Obama from ordering new office supplies.

The House panel that mandated the office-supply freeze denied that it was politically motivated, citing “budgetary concerns.”

“It’s time President Obama learned a tough lesson,” House Speaker John Boehner told reporters.“Being President does not entitle you to a spending spree at Staples.”

At the White House, the President blasted the Republicans’ move to strip him of legal pads, pencils, and other office essentials, calling it “just their latest attempt to keep me from doing my job.”

In an Oval Office appearance, a visibly irritated President Obama showed reporters a nearly empty supply cabinet and said,“They have manufactured this crisis,” noting that he will be out of paper clips and Post-its by August.

Cosmological infinities

Another type of infinity arises in gravitation theory and cosmology. Einstein's theory of general relativity suggests that an expanding Universe (as we observe ours to be) started at a time in the finite past when its density was infinite — this is what we call the Big Bang. Einstein's theory also predicts that if you fell into a black hole, and there are many black holes in our Galaxy and nearby, you would encounter an infinite density at the centre. These infinities, if they do exist, would be actual infinities.

Now that is an interesting way to describe all of them in office to a certain extent, but then of course I think Congress has way too many time outs as it is. How many days are they physically in their offices or on the floor voting for issues that they were elected to perform?

Predictions from theoretical math.

Have all your infinities you want in theoretical math.

In physical reality, I proved you can have none. By definition.

"Infinity and zero are abstract mathematical constructs which we use to describe what a system is tending towards. The mathematical philosophy behind this is not too difficult to grasp because these abstractions are unrealisable by self-definition."

"As with many physics theories, infinity is only a concept that fixes certain problems. In the literal sense it may not, and in the case of infinity, does not literally exist in nature. Since the universe had a beginning, it cannot contain infinity."

Happy News for a change

In the wake of the revelation from the U.S. Department of Heath and Human Services, which indicated that some unaccompanied miigrant children had already been settled into Idaho, it turns out that the vast majority of children arriving in the U.S. from Central America are already in the custody of relatives.

And the New York Times is reporting that a total of 30,340 migrant children have been released to sponsors, according to the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
Children who are not able to find qualified sponsors (about 10 percent of the total) are placed in long-term shelters or foster care.

The majority of the children are from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

I posted something like this a long time ago about present day math, but will do again. Very easy to understsand and see how errors can creep into calculations and speculations.

You can take a two mile length of a single object such as a big block of rock and graph it, using those theoretical center points, and divide it into 2 lengths called a mile. Understand this is one object.

But if you took two one mile lengths and butted them together as tight as you can, you will have a total length longer than two miles. Why? Two separate objects can't share the same start and stop points. They are two separate continuums. So you have an extra space in between. A break in the continuum. These will add up with each addition. No way around that.

This occurs on the subatomic to the universal scale. Compounded on the atomic scale because of force fields. Not for just length, but for volumes, also. Anything that occupies its own space. It is an inherent failure of the present math system.

Numbers don't lie, but the additions, and subtractions, can be quite mistaken, especially when you get into astronomical measurements.

You have a nearly 100% failure rate.
But you can clear it up right now, just give us the final dimensions of the universe.
So it can be finite for you.

Huh?

It is up to you to prove "infinity" is an actual "thing" as you have been representing it. Mental cases see "things" that aren't there. Prove your sanity. It is in question.

So the errors of math concepts relating to real world physics I pointed out escapes you, eh?

If they came here with the intent of living with extended family then they aren't refugees.

I could never convince you of anything, you godbot .
Godbots don't know anything either...it exceeds their programing.

"Something very odd can happen if we assume that our Universe will eventually stop expanding and contract back to another infinity, a big crunch. That big crunch could be non-simultaneous because some parts of the Universe, where there are galaxies and so on, are denser than others. The places that are denser will run into their future infinities before the low-density regions. If we were in a bit of the Universe that had a greatly delayed future infinity, or even none at all, then we could look back and see the end of the Universe happening in other places — we would see something infinite. You might see evidence of space and time coming to an end elsewhere."
