MORE PROOF THAT, DESPITE THE UTTER, COMPLETE AND TOTAL FAITH MOST CONTEMPORARY ATHEISTS PUT IN IT, SCIENCE IS NOT CURRENTLY ABLE TO EXPLAIN THE OBSERVABLE UNIVERSE:
Astronomers have reportedly discovered the largest known structure in the universe – a formation so massive it would take a vehicle that was moving at light speed roughly four billion light years to cross it, the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) announced on Thursday.
The structure is a large quasar group (LQG), or a formation that contains the nuclei of galaxies from the earliest days of the universe’s existence. These quasar groups, which undergo astronomically brief (10 to 100 million years long) periods of extreme brightness that make them eminently visible, are known to be 200 Megaparsecs (Mpc) or more across. In comparison, the distance between Andromeda and the Milky Way is only 0.75 Mpc, the researchers said.
“Based on the Cosmological Principle and the modern theory of cosmology, calculations suggest that astrophysicists should not be able to find a structure larger than 370 Mpc,” the society explained. However, the LQG discovered by University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) astronomer Dr. Roger Clowes and his colleagues “is so significant in size it also challenges the Cosmological Principle: the assumption that the universe, when viewed at a sufficiently large scale, looks the same no matter where you are observing it from.”MAN'S REACH WILL ALWAYS EXCEED HIS GRASP.
MANY UN-BELIEVERS IN G-D BELIEVE IN SCIENCE - AS IF IT EXPLAINED EVERYTHING. IT DOESN'T, AND IT NEVER HAS.
AS OUR REACH HAS EXPANDED, WE HAVE OBSERVED MORE AND MORE THINGS THAT COMPLETELY DISPROVE MANY SCIENTIFIC THEORIES THAT WERE ACCEPTED AS IF THEY WERE FACTS.
IN RESPONSE, SCIENCE HAS COME UP WITH EVER MORE ELABORATE AND COMPLEX THEORIES.
TO ME, G-D SIMPLY PASSES OCCAM'S TEST: G-D IS THE SIMPLEST AND MOST ELEGANT ANSWER TO THE DEEPEST COSMOLOGICAL QUESTIONS.
PERHAPS THIS IS WHY PHYSICISTS SEARCHING FOR THE HIGGS-BOSON PARTICLE CALL IT "THE G-D PARTICLE".
IN MY OPINION, G-D WITHDREW, OR "SHRANK" IN A WAY IF YOU WILL, TO MAKE ROOM FOR AND CREATE OUR DIMENSIONS, AND HE AND HIS LAWS ARE THE SCAFFOLDING AROUND WHICH ALL LIFE - ALL MATTER AND EVERYTHING SPIRITUAL - IS CONSTRUCTED.
I THINK THE HIGGS-BOSON RESEARCH ON THE SMALL SCALE AND TELESCOPIC RESEARCH ON THE LARGE SCALE MIGHT VERY WELL ONE DAY CONFIRM THIS --- IOW: THE PHYSICAL EXISTENCE OF THE UNIVERSE MAY SOON CONFIRM THE METAPHYSICAL EXISTENCE OF G-D.
ETHICAL PROOF THAT A METAPHYSICAL G-D EXISTS CAN BE FOUND HERE.
