I was challenged by a comment.
Yes, I do read my readers.
That is a great question. And no, the reader did not ask this specific question.
But, this question naturally evolved out of a comment on this blog post.
Do I want to believe in the Big Bang?
WOW. I am stumped. Honestly. I am stumped.
First, it would require my believing in a Prime Mover. And admitting that belief. AND submitting to what I believed – IMHO.
Second, it would require me to consider what I would do if THE BIG BANG WAS PROVEN WRONG – it is just a theory.
I would be placing what I believe into ‘cement.’
WOW. As much as I have studied the Big Bang. And as fascinated as I am by it, do I really want to lock myself into such a recent phenomena as we find in this theory?
I honestly need to think about this more ….
