    This just in... people who think they know everything faced with unknown forced to admit they might not know everything after all.

    I stopped paying attention to this stuff when they decided that there were more than three types of atomic particles. How many did they get up to before they started purging them? 50? 60?

    Where did the stuff that went bang even come from, and why did it go bang? Oh, forget I asked, because we couldn't possibly know.

    If II drive my car at the speed of light and turn on the headlights, what happens?

    Either the theory is wrong, the math is wrong or the universe does not exist.

    I choose option C.

    "During the early universe, we expected cosmic inflation — this is a rapid expansion of the universe right after the Big Bang," said study co-author Robert Hogan, a doctoral candidate in physics at King's College in London. "This expansion causes lots of stuff to shake around, and if we shake it too much, we could go into this new energy space, which could cause the universe to collapse."

    And, therein, lies your explanation. Everyone knows that a properly mixed universe, as ours quite clearly is, should always be stirred, not shaken.

    Higgs Boson Theorist Claims Universe Shouldn't Exist

    ...and yet it does!

    A few scientists seem inclined to deny the obvious -- perhaps it's the n.i.h. factor, perhaps
    it's because they are so smart, they're dumb. I remember when someone announced that
    God was dead. Whether it was a scientist, a theologian or Madeline Murray O'Hare, I don't
    remember.

    It seems that every so often someone comes along with a 'grand' pronouncement that, if
    believed, tends to upset the applecart of beliefs or theories. It's "the emperor's clothes"
    all over again. Whether challenging science, theology or just traditionally held and widely
    accepted beliefs, the pronouncer usually gets the attention they seek, thus this thread and
    its dubious source.

    The other side of stating the obvious is denying the obvious. We all know and accept that
    the Earth is flat. Don't we?

    I think, therefore, I am.

    The only you can say for certain about the universe is that nothing is certain about the universe.

    Wait for it....

    Not if you're going with the flow of traffic :) We have established that the flow of traffic is whatever speed multiple drivers are going at (in another thread) so traveling at the speed of light is acceptable as long as you are not holding up others behind you who wish to go faster ;)

    Option C would really free up some time for me :)

    Personally, I have always believed in option C. I know I'm just a figment of the imagination of a weak universal mind consisting entirely of gravity.

    If the universe does not exist does it not exist in HD. Grammar police please review.

    The article and this thread are proof that it does exist.

    If it did not, there would be no one to question it.

    If I didn't exist, I would be a lot less stressed.
