The Dark age of science 2012 or God did it~
The Scientific Dark ages 2012> ?
Short version and note. I have been providing a short version of some of my long complicated posts, for obvious reasons! However I suggest for this thread unless one has a good scientific back ground the entire boring thing be read.
The ‘kind of’ Short version.
Science has arrived at its limits. The math and other tools that once perfectly described our universe both big and small are no longer useful to describe the big questions. Those are what happened before the big bang or what lies inside singularities of black holes, a domain where time does not exist and all our rules of science break down. I make a point in the thread that metaphysics is a valid alternative way probe and maybe understand how the universe works ie the workings of singularities of the Big Bang and Black Holes. Unless we discover a working theory for quantum gravity which is very unlikely, we are in a dark age of science right now and have been at least concerning the big question for eighty years.
The Looooong version ha ha~
The new dark age of science or the Metaphysical Renaissance of 'God did it'~
I was watching a science program* on the science channel last night where physicists were lamenting the sad fact that the physics and science that described the universe perfectly for 80 years was wrong or incomplete of faulty. Specifically they were talking about being unable to merge the world of the very big with the world of the very small, i.e. quantum theory with classical theory, such as Einstein’s theory of relativity etc. Since those two theories could not be made to work together our science was useless when we are trying to describe what happens inside a black hole or what happened before t-0 of the big bang (’before’) the singularity and the universe began to exist. The trouble is that this stump has been troubling science for eight plus decades. Einstein spent the last years of his life trying to merge the two theories.
* beware of what is called science on the discovery channel or the science channel (both the same company) etc. I have noticed so many glaring errors that a good 5th grade student would spot. That goes for the history channel too.
Our science simply collapses if we try to discover what made the big bang begin. I suspect we are entering a dark ages of science. Even with our latest tools like the super-collider at CERN and the smaller one in the USA, our new satellites, the questions are even more numerous than ever.
However for the religious or spiritual minded, the answer has been around 2000 years or more. The reason science fails at the ‘singularity’ of the big bang is that the creation of the universe is beyond the reach of our current scientific tools. God created the universe, probably as per the KCA. I believe that QFT and Classical theory may never be merged in a compatible manner, unless we open our eyes and make a paradigm shift of how we investigate subjects like singularities, where time stops and our scientific tools are forbidden to enter. The only thing left is the spiritual non-tangible tools of the human mind and soul. Philosophy 'neo-natural' science, and metaphysics trump the old science called positive science aka the scientific method.
Philosophy ie metaphysics (think Kurt Godel) have no such limitations as our remarkable but useless tools of science when it comes to what happens ‘inside’ singularities. Save for some kind of astonishing new physics or a new type of fundamental physics or even a new scientific break through that marries quantum physics with classical physics I fear we are indeed entering a scientific dark age.
