Size DOES matter.... and science IS religion.

Size is a funny thing, and more than anything else it's based almost entirely on perspective. Small to us is huge to an ant. And whats huge to us is small to the whale. But it goes even deeper, because at the core of things it all breaks down. Our science only truly explains things in our size range, once you get sub atomic, or universal, the numbers start to fall apart.

And that, my friends, is why Science is Religion. I don't care what branch of science you look at, nor what "certain" knowledge you think they have, at some point it distills down to theory, and what is theory but faith? And faith is the basis of religion.

And who knows, maybe 2000 years from now they are going to look at our theories and chuckle about how quaint it was we thought the way we think. Much like we look at the Greeks and their gods, or those that believe the earth was flat.

It comes back around to "The more we know, the more we find out we know nothing!"

Most of us except science as a black and white thing. If they say it's true then it is! But that is far from the truth. It's like if your looking at an ice berg, you can measure what's above the water, you can see it, feel it, taste it and touch it. But let's suspend reality for a moment, and lets say you CAN'T see below the water. So all you can do is guess at what's down there. You can theorize about what's down there, but that's all in the end, just best guesses.

Now let's take this a step closer to our subject. Let's now say you not only can't SEE below the water line, lets say all the rules change below the water line as well. None of the rules you can use to figure out what's what above the water line seem to hold true below. Now one more little step, this ice burg is really big, and there's a skyline as well. And like the water line, you can't see past it, and the rules get funky up there too.

So now we come back to size. You see no mater how small you go or how big you go, you hit a water line or a skyline. As time marches on and we figure more out, the water line gets pushed back, and so does the sky line, but they are always still there, and seem to never really end.

So what does that mean?? The truth of today might later become a loose rule, then be proved incorrect all together. Our current waterline seems to be sub atomic, and our sky line? About 100 million years from the big bang. Course that's just OUR side of the bang, what's on the other? We haven't even gotten to the edge of the universe yet, what's beyond that? What are we going to find once we can see beyond sub atomic? And why do all the rules we have that work fine from the water line to the sky line seem to go out the window once we try to push beyond them?

At least on the big side of things it all seems to work mostly how we think they should. There is still lots of holes in the math, but when you can find planets in the sky just because of how the OTHER planets move and act, well that's getting in the ball park. I think once we go beyond the "edge", that's when the math will go really strange. In sub atomic studies, the math just gets all crazy. Nothing seems to hold true at that level. It's like having to have two sets of books, one for above and one for below, and they don't balance.

They don't even "know" what gravity is, or how it really works. They can prove it's there, they can measure it, and they can math it, but they don't KNOW WHY. There are theories, but still that's all they are...theory....and theory is faith! Look up something you really have an interest in, then follow it down. At some point it stops being fact, and becomes theory. ALL of it, all of everything.

Why does the speed of light never change, no matter how fast you are moving towards the light source or away from from it? I mean really?? Everything else if you move towards it, and it's moving towards you, the perceived closure rate is the two speeds added together. So if you are going 40 and they are going 40, then you closing at 80. But not light (or other EM stuff). With light if you are moving at 185,000 MPS away or towards the source the measured speed of the light is still 186,000 MPS.

And if your in a car traveling light speed, and turn on the lights.....what happens?? LOL

In all other things known to man, the light would come out and be measured at  372,000 MPS, but not light, nope. Well first of all the car COULDN'T travel light speed, since mass can't travel the speed of light. But still...LOL

Oh, and then there is the nice little thing about E=MC2 and the general rule of relativity about mass and why it can't travel the speed of light. How does something GAIN mass the faster it travels. I mean I know I GAIN mass by eating, but by just traveling?? And the theory, the bible of science, says something with mass would become infinitely  massive right as it reached the speed of light, so it could never go the speed of light without infinite energy to propel it. So even in space, with no friction or other resistance, the faster you make something go, the more energy it takes.

So something grows heaver as it goes faster.....oh, and time slows down too. Oh yeah, the Greeks were crazy.... sure.

I'm not by any means saying science is wrong, or that believing in it is wrong. But people view it as a constant, 100% correct view of the world, and that when they hear science says something, they take it as gospel. The problem with that is the same problem with religions in general. People don't questions enough, and it slows the learning down, or stops it completely.

Just saying see it for what it is.

The truth is out there, find it for yourself!

  1. Interesting concepts. I do question science a lot. And like you say believe that science must be born out of faith even though some if not most scientist may not be religious.

  2. Carrie, I agree. The science minded have faith down pat, even though it may not be called that. It does explain why conflict exist between,l science and religion though.
