How can humans presume to know anything about how the universe began? I cant take studies like this seriously Posted on May 25, 2023 by Anonymous How can humans presume to know anything about how the universe began? I can’t take studies like this seriously
Nor should you. This kind of stuff is just pop science. The universe isn't 4.2 billion years old, or whatever they're saying it is currently. As best I can tell, the universe has no beginning or end. At least that's what I choose to believe. You'll go mad trying to put a true date on the universe's beginning.
Why do they bother? To satisfy their midwit reddit readers?
Redundant decalaration, average redditor it's a midwit. Plus fuck faggit
Because if we didn't bother with science we'd still be living in mudhuts and having no clue at all how the world works.
Sure but some things will always be beyond human comprehension.
It's a job, like any other job. People pay you to make the number fit what they want.
The ones doing the actual science are the "amatuers" who don't have to worry about toeing the line and the government employed scientists who can't afford to bullshit around.
the primordial bounce
They say they don't know what was singularity before bang, it can be a bounce or anything else.
>I don't understand it, so nobody can understand it.
its all assumptions
This guy is right. Only way we can really tell how distant something is in space is if an object with a known distance passes in front of another object. Most stars in space haven't given us opportunities like this to properly measure them so our whole view of space is totally guessing games. "AHH YES THIS IS A DWARF STAR. WHY? BECAUSE LOOK AT ITS COLOR, THAT MEANS ITS X LIGHT YEARS AWAY!!!" Astronomy is retarded.
Who set off the bang?
Viper the rapper
its when the algorithm started up. then heatdeath is when we crack the code, the algorithm shutsdown. then bangs again, when they start it up again.
The universe was created the moment I was conceived, and will end the moment I pass. I am the only conscious observer.
We don't know anything about how the universe began. But we can use our observations about the universe now to hypothesize how it might have begun.
