    If you think about it...... what do you think created the primordial ooze that well..... banged. There are a terribly large amount of signs pointing towards the existence of a god.
    And what created* the god that created the primordial ooze?

    * or "how did it come into existence", whatever

    One theory (as seen on Nova, "Runaway Universe") is that the Universe will someday stop expanding and start contracting and implode - perhaps starting the process all over again.

    yes, the theory of time simply "ending" - scarry thought.

    Vanilla Ice's theory as seen on the surreal life is totally moronic. He says there is a god BUT we come from another more advanced planet. If I could meet I would ask him 1 thing. Why the hell we would get so dumb all of a sudden. His theory is just full of holes as is the theory of evolution.
    cerin, did you really quote vanilla ice in this discussion? are you freagin serious?

    Zach, your argument is something I used when I was in grade school...it maybe valid, but brings nothing to the discussion - we are all aware of the faults and the question of "if this made that, what made this? and so on into infinity." - take a look at the op and try to answer that, instead of repeating the same thing over and over again.

    Codeplug, that theory I belive is more commonly known as the Oscillating Universe Theory, or at least that's what they teach it as at school

    This is random, but can someone quickly explain to me a little bit more about what smell is. I was wondering how it travles and stuff.

    I prefer the pressure theory. Basically, when you accurately expand the equations for gravitation, pressure becomes a source of gravity. In the everyday world, it's insignificant. In the early days of the universe with very little entropy, everything was very tightly bunched together such that the pressure term of the gravitation equations was much more significant than the 'regular' terms from gravitation. The thing is, the pressure term of gravitation induces a repulsive force, where normal gravity (following newton's laws for macroscopic objects) is an attractive force (it induces a pull).

    So, basically, the theory suggests that gravity caused the big bang. Because it is gravity, and not some other mysterious unknown entity (gravity obeys the speed limit of the universe, the speed of light) the big bang acts as a single well defined event with respect to absolute space time (as opposed to basing it off of relative time or whatever).

    ok, but make a new thread and lets try to keep this on topic as much as possible.

    That was in direct response to cerin... Not to anything else.

    I would like to humbly point out my post above directly relates to the OP's question.

    The actual implication here is that I'm awesome and everyone else's response sucked. Except for Zach, because he goes to MIT, and that's where I get a lot of my info, and MIT is cool. Otherwise Zach would suck too.

    and about the whole pointless religion argument: the answer is 8. I'm catholic.

    Err... I fail to see how where I go has to do with anything...

    Anyway... Back to the original point. Unless I'm mistaken, the last I heard was that the oscillating universe idea is false because the universe has been measured to be accelerating apart, hence, it should never reach a point at which it will collapse in on itself.

    *edit*

    My apologies to everyone for the derailment of this thread.

    and axon, i ranked you up, even though you are a jackass for ranking me down. next time you say im not on topic, make sure i haven't already given an intelligent reply.

    The one complication I see is the unification of the forces "early" on after the big bang. For there to be repulsion, there must be a repulsive force but gravity isn't (unless of course, you found something with negative mass).

    It was my understanding, when I read my source, which I don't have handy, that to get the total force of gravity, you basically take a bunch of different terms to get an accurate answer...sort of like expanding a taylor series or something like that. But, the pressure term from gravity is sort of like the term from the 1000th derivative which is usually small, except for in certain instances (I realize the taylor series isn't the best example).

    So, unless I read my source wrong, yes, pressure does contribute to gravity, and yes, it creates a repulsive gravity. Of course, every classical text book defines gravity as being attractive, but I was reading a book about string theory, which isn't a classical text book.

    Of course, every argument is flaky in the sense that we can't really prove much of anything. I'm regurgitating some fancy ideas I would have never thought of.

    A better argument against my response is that I didn't even touch upon the problem of *where* the matter came from, only how it expanded

    The pressure theory also contributes to this idea of an expanding universe (a universe that may be expanding at an increasing rate, as opposed to expanding only to someday collapse...it again deals with balancing the attractive component of gravity with the repulsive component of gravity, where the outskirts of the universe becomes so distant from ordinary mass that the pressure term of gravity becomes dominant and repels it away).

    True... And I'm guessing not too many of us here are particular specialists in the field.

    Anyway, that seems to make some sense, and probably makes sense with the unification of the forces as well.

    I know this was posted some time ago and was ignored, but:

    >> what about the theory that mankind in the distant future creates the universe that we are in today
    That either doesn't work or supports one of the other theories, because it requires some starting point to initiate the 'universe loop'.

    possibly not. Does anything have to have an independent cause when there is circular causation. Something in effect causes itself to come into being, which is not theoretically impossible.
    there used to be something here, but not anymore
