MAY WE RECOMMEND--
An Ever-Less-Brief History of Time
Does anyone really know what time it is? Apparently not, according to a new report issued by physicist Moshe Carmeli of Ben Gurion University in Israel. (Thanks to Louw Feenstra for bringing this to our attention.)
The report is"The First Six Days of the Universe," Los Alamos E-print Archive, arXiv:astro-ph/0008040 See URL: <http://xxx.lanl.gov/abs/astro-ph/0008040>.
The Untimeliness of TimeHere is the author's brief summary of his report:
The early stage of the Universe is discussed and the time lengths of its first six days, as well as its age, are given. There seems to be no contradiction with the Bible's ascertain that the Universe was created in six days.
Here is the author's conclusion:
In conclusion, the lengths of the first six days were enough to accomodate the activities of the creation mentioned in the Bible. Furthermore, since at that time there were no other reference systems (like the present-day one) to compare with, one concludes that the ascertain of the Bible about the six-day creation of the Universe is scientifically valid.
Is it True?
No scientist would publish such an attention-grabbing conclusion unless it were correct. Therefore Dr. Carmeli's work is correct. We all owe him an enormous debt of gratitude.
Implications for the Physics Community
Nineteenth and twentieth century physics has now reached its goal: proving that the Bible is literally correct according to Moshe Carmeli. And thus, we have reached the state predicted by David Lindley in his 1994 book, The End of Physics: The Myth of a Unified Theory.
After today, all physics departments can disband, and all physicists lay down their swords and beat them into ploughshares. At last, we have reached the end of physics -- or will have, come the end of the day.*
*NOTE: according to Dr. Carmeli's calculation, today may appear almost infinitely long in some frames of reference.
