DARK ENERGY AND DARK MATTER… IT COULD BE UNITED, AND STRINGY.

Irene Sendra, a researcher in the Department of Theoretical Physics and History of Science of the UPV/EHU’s Faculty of Science and Technology, is collaborating with Adam Riess, one of the 2011 Nobel Prize Winners for Physics, to study whether dark energy is dynamic, and investigate a proposal that would unite dark energy and dark matter.

The current model, Lambda-Cold Dark Matter (CDM) explains the acceleration of the universe by means of the cosmological constant from Einstein’s theory of relativity, Lambda. But, this model assumes that this constant is, well, constant. As in, the universe has been and will forever be expanding at its current rate. This team is looking for a dynamic dark energy that would vary over time.

Go Be - I have a question for you and anyone else of the christian faith

Why are you not vocally attacking the Christian Evangelical movement? It seems to me that they are purposely promoting hatred and violence all under the guise of the loving grace of Jesus.


Anybody who has been following the action in Uganda these days should be demanding an accounting from these scurrilous rogues and the ones leading the charge should be those who are christian.

Bruce Kay...

God calls Christians to do his will (which IS the right thing) even when others don't!
Though I know God doesn't want us involved in the sin of homosexuality, we are supposed to have love for our brothers and sisters, and to say to do harm to them is EVIL and a much worse sin!

re: spirit, spirituality, spirit theories

Go-b,

In my field of practice (which is not any religion, nor scientology, lol) we've got a spirit theory, too. A few fundamentals: (1) Spirit flows through ALL living things (not just humans). (2) Spirit, as far as the individual goes, is mortal, flesh-based, flesh-driven, emphemeral (short-lasting), finite. In other words, spirit is only borrowed and one day you have to give it back. (3) It's a sign of growing up from child to adult, also a sign of maturity, esp now in the modern world, to come to grips with the first two fundamentals, which result from a modern, scientific understanding of how life works.

Spirit, as far as the individual goes, is mortal,

Spirit is never mortal and always eternal.

That's why it's called "spirit".

Mental speculators who have no clue what spirit is will make up sh!t to suit themselves and substantiate their guessing .....

Ecclesiastes 12:6 Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed,
Or the golden bowl is broken,
Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain,
Or the wheel broken at the well.

7 **Then the dust will return to the earth as it was,
And the spirit will return to God who gave it**.

We've been over this before, but let's repeat here for sake of tedium...

The original "spirit" comes from the Latin, spirare, to breathe. Simple as that. Only religions muck up this fine word.

The living spirit is mortal. Sorry. Reality bites.

But I'll concede the word's def depends on the belief system. Thankfully, (a) the traditional belief systems of Abrahamica and Hinduism and (b) the new-agers, like Scientology, aren't the only ones.

It doesn't have anything to do with any belief system.

Spirit is not matter and is eternal.

It matters not what you or I say or anyone.

Spirit is eternal and is the eternal fact, summon bonum.

The living entity is spirit soul and exists before and after the desolation of the gross physical body.

Doesn't matter what you theorize or speculate the fact and ultimate truth remains ....

Spirit is eternal and life comes from life .......

John 4:23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

...that makes God the original "Spirit"!

You guys are hilarious ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

People are being butchered or otherwise pissed upon from the very great height of religious tribal superiority and the only thing you think is worth talking about is some esoteric mumbo jumbo like a bunch of half baked scientologists!

Get back on topic retards. Its Religion, Politics and science


Gobe you and Spider should get together and hold a seance or something!


edit: In the case of at least some of you - probably fully baked!


Skill testing question: Which prophet in the following clip is Werner?

heh - good one Werner. I'm over opinionated. Jesus I guess I'll just have to spend a few hours figuring out that one.

Anyway you should talk. My evidence is that clap trap you posted at the top of the page. You want to go on about summon bonum, meaning I assume that "ultimate good" or what ever is attained by ruminating on the infinity of the spirit or some sh#t..... meanwhile the physical realities of this world, not the next one are most certainly something to consider when someone shoves a gun in your mouth!

Its not that complicated. Really. Even if you want it to be.

So come on man, which one of those guys is you?

forgive me werner (or Go-b, whatever...) for I have sinned. I stand before you head bowed and remorseful. Woe be me who mocks the great blue yonder which is beyond my pathetic materialist comprehension and low brow third rate impulses. My sinful humor leads me astray from the path of certain enlightenment.

Or maybe its just how you phrase it

How do you know that a soul can withstand the impact of being at ground zero of a hydrogen bomb?

What makes you the authority on the subject?

I say you just make up your opinions as you go, and have no idea if you are in agreement (with others of similar faith) or not
