Most atheists say they don't believe in God because there isin't enough proof. I think in many cases, they are investigating science under the assumption there is no God. Look at the "Many Worlds Hypothesis". This bad idea states that "each time an outcome emerges from a quantum event,the universe splits into as many copies as there are outcomes" - A.K. Dewdney, Beyond Reason. In other words, every time a particle is observed at one place, an entire NEW UNIVERSE is created instantly at that moment from that point. But it doesn't end there, a new universe is created at that point in time for every possible point in space that particle could be observed. An entire new universe, identical to the one we perceive as reality, with exact copies of every human being, planet, star, galaxy, atom, and quark. How is this anywhere near the realm of possible or even reasonable to anyone? But many scientists are convinced there is ZERO CHANCE a supernatual being is responsible for creating our reality and the laws that govern its behavior. Albert Einstein spent the last twenty years of his career trying to disprove quantum mechanics, a theroy he helped create, because he didn't like the idea of a reality where probability of possible outcomes of an event are the closest we can come to predicting future events. This is where his famous "God does not play dice with the universe" quote comes from. Einstein had a weakness of not accepting certain implications of theroies even after they were proven true. Even implications of his own theroies. His theroies of special and general relativity were two of the greatest scientific discoveries of all time. Strangely, he didn't like that it predicted that the universe was not static, that is, that it had a beginning. He preferred the idea of a universe that just was. A universe with no beginning and no end. The irony in this is it compelled him to insert a "cosmological constant", denoted by the symbol Lambda in his equations. He was smart enough to realize that his equations predicted a universe with a finite life. A beginning and an end. Its beginning, the Big Bang, was the explosion from a "primordial egg" that contained all the matter in the entire universe in a space the size of an atom. The end would either be the outward force of the explosion being overcome eventually by the gravitational force of all the matter in the universe pulling everything back together (Big Crunch), or the outward force of the explosion pushing everything in the universe away from everything until all the stars burn out and matter stops interacting(cold death). For whatever reason, this bothered him, so he just made up this other force out of nothing to keep the universe unchanging on the large scale. He also tried in vain to disprove or at least find a contradiction in the theroy of quantum mechanics. He won his Nobel Prize in physics for his work on the Photoelectric effect, the interaction of particles of light and electrons(not relativity, as most assume) which was part of the foundation of the new theroy. His worked also predicted the existence of "entangled" particles, or photons (particles of light) that were emitted from atoms during certain quantum events that acted as one. That is, when one was acted upon, the other felt the reaction INSTANTLY. Meaning faster than light. I would explain more about this phenomenon, but I'm still learning about it myself. Nature is truly bizarre.
But lets rewind the clock all the way back to the Big Bang. Before the Big Bang. It's strange to think about this "time" because time didn't exist at this "time". I guess it sort of did. Anyway, if we stop the clock one second after the Big Band, the universe is really really small. It is also very hot. So hot that atoms only containing one proton are allowed to form. This is because the protons and neutrons are flying around so fast that they arent able to be held together by the Strong Nuclear Force, because it only acts over very small distances. BUT THE STRONG NUCLEAR FORCE STILL EXISTED, ALONG WITH THE OTHER 3 FORCES! The force of the other forces, and their strengths, existed. The electromagnetic force was in play, because there were photons flying around everywhere, but the other two forces I haven't mentioned yet, the Weak Nuclear Force and Gravity, were not being felt by anything yet. Gravity wasn't a factor because nothing had enough mass (there were only protons, neutrons, electrons, and photons I m pretty sure...) to pull on anything else. The Weak Nuclear Force was also inactive because it only concerns the decay of large nuclei and the transformation of its mass into energy as ultraviolet radiation. But the forces still existed, as well as their strengths relative to each other. The force of Gravity is about 10 to the negative 36th power the strength of the Strong Nuclear Force. The strength of the Electric/Magnetic Force is a little less than 1% the strength of the Strong Nuclear Force. But its range is infinite, as is Gravity. Im gonna leave out the other ones right now cause Im tired and have stuff to do, but Ill continue. Next Im going to tell you about the other particles that didn't exist at the very beginning of the universe and the laws of physics that hadn't taken effect, but still existed at the beginning of the universe. Some people say that "laws" is a generic term which only describes our understanding of how the universe works, but I disagree. Just as with the strengths and ranges of the 4 known forces of nature, the laws can be quantified and are explainable with mathematics, which I believe also existed before us humans were around to count or even comprehend what a number is. I hope all this cosmology stuff doesn't scare you off, I only know the facts themselves, not the mathematical underpinnings of the information.(yet) So whoever is reading this is probably more educated than me and smarter as well. lmao See you tomorrow. God loves you
