Cosmos may be ‘inherently unstable’ http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-21499765
This idea is really cool…
A concept known as vacuum instability could result, billions of years from now, in a new universe opening up in the present one and replacing it. It all depends on some precise numbers related to the Higgs that researchers are currently trying to pin down.
Certainly this is something which really puts a fly in the ointment of religious groups. Not sure how they can explain that one!
Maybe it is time to start to revise religion as some ideas which were written down about 2000 years ago by people who actually could hardly spell their own names or add up. What is the truth or relevance to the universe now in these ideas?
We are now actually starting to understand how it all fits together and the real truth. I certainly think we need to think more about the facts in front of us and not just “something we might believe”. I believe that I am the world’s best golfer but in fact, the reality that Tiger Woods does not lose games to me every week is the “evidence” that this is not the case! Anyway I can be happy in my ignorance…..That is as long as it does not start to effect society or that I impose this view on others, especially impressionable minds!
