Re: Big Bang

Any individual universe has a finite lifespan at the end of which that energy morphs to all the others. Not a Bang, not a Whimper, just everyday Transformation.

OH you're talking more on the lines of Quantum Mechanics then. On that scale we will always be on the outside looking in. When you said this: "and not in the outward way that science does today" I thought you meant science was only looking out to the stars. Zan - "I had not a dispute but a disquisi...

Thank you. I'm sure you must be right. But my point was more why specifically HE.... ? One of you said 'HE ... and that means boats'. HS now goes back about 100,000 years, according to recent fossils findings. So why specifically HE and boats? Ishtar - One of the things that regularly enrages me is...
