(1) Oops - not dark matter; (2) Required initial singularity implies creation of the universe by a causative power

Hey all - 2 quick ones.

(1) Nope. Not dark matter after all.

See: http://www.sciencenews.org/articles/20071020/fob5.asp
Science News, October 20, 2007, reports that the "maybe axion" sighting of last year appears likely to merely be a relic of equipment malfunction. The axion is a hypothetical subatomic particle that's been mentioned as a possible constituent of cosmic dark matter. Note your fearless blogger's earlier post mentioning that "dark matter" is not seen but only inferred by a supposed gravitational effect, and that in fact that the supposed gravitational effect may in fact be instead a property of space-time consistent with a creation-apologetic cosmology. See:

Does this mean no dark matter exists? No, but it does mean that men of vision do not use tunnel vision. If your personal cosmology is limited only to the BB unbounded/no-center universe (axiomatic) boundary conditions, maybe you have tunnel vision.


(2) Singularity in inflationary model universes implies creation.

I just received an announcement from a friend about an event in Seattle tonight (October 30, 2007). This goes back to DU's recent posting about boundary conditions for cosmological models. I am passing it on to you without further comment but this:

ALL PRAISE TO THE CREATOR - GOD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH - WHOSE EVEN GREATER WORK IS THE SALVATION OF MANKIND HOPELESSLY LOST IN OUR OWN WILLFUL SIN AND PRIDEFUL REBELLION AGAINST JEHOVAH, THE ALMIGHTY KING OF THE UNIVERSE.

Here is the announcement:

Tuesday, October 30, 2007, 07:30 PM Seattle Pacific University in Falcon
Chesterton Society with Rober Spitzer on "The Virtual Inevitability Of a Singularity in Inflationary Model Universes: Implications for the Creation of the Universe"

Location: Lounge on the top floor of Royal Brougham Pavilion at the corner of W. Nickerson & 3rd Ave, Seattle. For links to a campus map and directions, please see the Events Calendar at:
www.seattlechesterton.org

Spitzer is the president of Gonzaga University and a trained physicist. He will speak about recent developments in cosmology.


Classical Big Bang theory was altered significantly by the prospect of universal inflation and a “pre-big-bang quantum cosmological or string condition.” Recent work by Borde, Vilenkin, and Guth shows that mathematical modeling of such universes requires an initial singularity, which in turn implies a creation of the universe by a causative power transcending space-time asymmetry. Fr. Spitzer will discuss the history of this remarkable development and its theological implications.

Fr. Spitzer has been involved in teaching about the intersection of physics, metaphysics, and faith for many years. He is co-founder and director of the Institute for Christian Philosophy and the Natural Sciences at Gonzaga University, and co-organizes an annual lecture series entitled Physics and the God of Abraham. Fr. Spitzer is also founder of the Philosophical Foundations of Physics institute at Georgetown university: a group of physicists, chemists, ongoing discussion of underlying conditions of space, time and energy from physical and philosophical perspectives.


Respectfully passed on to friends of Jehovah God, praying that we all may be friends of God through our last breath and beyond.

D.U.

P.S. Doubters of God - read the Bible, Revelation chapter 20. You will find out that in the end, God wins, satan loses. Do you want to go with the winner or the loser? No mulligans and no excuses later (Romans chapter 1, also in the Bible).
