Big bang is out!,
I ve just been reading the latest comments.Of course,there can be no evidence about the hypothesesI put forward.I wouldn t be here sweating blood to snag arguments that hold water! But joking apart ,my line of reasoning is as follows 1) there is something 2) this something hasn t existed for ever because it s a spacetime one so that,however distant in the past,it might have occured,it had to begin or you could always push back its birth so that it would never reach its destination.Moreover,we do have proof of this beginning : THE BIG BANG,14.8 light years ago that gave rise to matter,space and time +very stringent laws as the recipe to govern this universe.We now know that these laws finetuning the universe for an ever increasing complexity and the emergence of life ,are so precise that the slightest change would have produced a short lived universe and wouldn t have spawn life Therefore,the nagging question is now:What or Who caused the BIG BANG ? I discount out of hand the answer NOTHING! How the heck,can something emerge from nothing.By definition,nothing will always engender nothing!...So that there has to have a CAUSE and this Cause has to be endowed with supernatural powers. It s omniscient,omnipotent and totally good but i won t expatiate on this third attribute which is very controvertial.This cause is not subject to the constraints of space and time though it created them for our universe.This cause is supernatural in the sense that it transcends everything! If you refuse such an entity for the creation of our world,who or what do you suggest instead? chance? but chance means it can t be defined and doesn t obey laws.It isn t a creative entity and once again the world has to have a beginning as it can t be eternal.

Natural causes and effects happen in our spacetime universe.By definition,a cause capable of creating a universe finetuned to be fertile is supernatural and owes nothing to chance;Indeed,scientists admit that such a complexity can t arise spontaneouly and to account for it ,scientists have to resort to the multiverse theory or to the creation of an infinite number of universes .Only ours would have hit the jackpot

Somebody remarks that if i need a cause for the world ,why not a natural cause?......And also why don t I apply the causality principle to God.? And finally why do I suggest 1 God and not several Gods? 1) I mean that the alternate sequence of causes and effects describes our spacetime universe and that chain of causes can t continue eternally.Indeed ,something coming from infinity never reaches its destination.So,the universe has to have a beginning ,which is confirmed by the Big Bang.Our spacetime universe comes into being at the Big Bang.But now what causes it doesn t pertain to the same continuum of space and time.It is a creative transcendence that is not subject to the limitations of space and time.So,it doesn t need a cause.It is uncaused.It is.You can call it John or transcendence or GOD! It s NOT a natural cause as it operates outside our world and it s supernatural in the sense that it is omniscient,omnipotent........2) Why not several Gods? Because ,in reference to Occam s razor principle,it s simpler to postulate 1 God than several though ,if the multiverse theory is correct ,you can suggest 1 God for each universe but ,once again,with Occam in mind,I lean towards the creation of 1 universe.

Let s take stock of the situation.As soon as we come into this world we are confronted with insuperable mysteries that neither science nor philosophy can solve! Why is there something rather than nothing? how do life and consciousness emerge from inanimate matter? What s the point of emerging from this gigantic universe,of living a nanosecond to return to nothingness? Even Occam s razor principle fails to provide an answer.Indeed,it postulates simplicity,snccinctness,parsimony and urges us to select among conflicting hypothèses that which makes the fewest assumptions.This principle has been used successfully to justify uncertainty in quantum physics.Apparently,it doesn t work for our universe as we can logically assume that NOTHING is SIMPLER than SOMETHING! Something demands a creative act and a supernatural being.Hence the appeal of religions and the necessity of a god . Not being susceptible to the trappings and dogmas of religions which to me are nothing more than superstitions,I do believe in a GOD to account for our world.Our spacetime universe is ruled by causality and necessarily has a beginning however distant in time it might be..All scientists now think that our world was born 13.4 billion years ago in a BIG BANG.Could it happen by chance out of nothing?I don t think so.It required a primary cause that is uncaused and so eternal,and all powerful.It gave rise to the laws that explain the extraordinary finetuning of a universe climbing the ladder of ever increasing complexity.That being said,it doesn t solve puzzling enigmas such as the presence of EVIL.One explanation can be that to be free man may choose among several courses of actions.OBEsthat sometimes attend NDEs support this thesis as experiencers report a being of light asking them what they did with their life and showing them the conséquences of their actions!.Nevertheless,we can assume that,being all powerful,god could have created a free man choosing good!

Is Philosophy dead?
You start with a bang by asserting that philosophy will never die!.....But to die,it must exist .Is there such a thing as philosophy?............I contend that philosophy is nothing more than the brain at work to guide and protect the human being.It thinks ,analyses,ponders,arbitrates among several courses of action,sorts out information provided by past expériences and the five senses......You remark that science is unable to answer metaphysical conundrums but metaphysics can t do any better.While philosophers keep blabbing on for hours about such mysteries as how could the universe emerge from nothing,what is the meaning of life,will the big bang be followed by a big Crunch and other niceties of the same calibre,science is forging ahead exponentially providing better lifestyle ,more consumption,more spare time to cultivate the mind,more values,to make salient discoveries,to reduce working time enabling men to engage in varied pursuits.To conclude ,I d say that science and only science ,from the cave men to the Greeks ,to our present day

Is Philosophy dead?
Indeed,as a student,I always thought that philosophy was essential to appraise the world,to think twice before acting or reaching a conclusion,to calmly address personal and social,political or economic problems....Then,one day ,my enthusiasm was dampened as I stumbled upon an article by French thinker Jean Francois REVEL.He explained that philosophy arose from men s desire to make sense of the world without resorting to religion.Some early thinkers,notably Thales and Herodotus,had a passion for observing nature,and founded philosophy on the rejection of myth......For the next two millenia,philosophers oscillated between two conceptions of knowledge: One emphasizing concrete observation and the other,general theories of a deeper reality................................................................................................This,REVEL argues,changed with the birth of modern science! Philosophers then faced a difficult choice..1)..Focus on their core metaphysical activities and drift towards brainy triviality...2)...Embrace empiricism which was tantamount to winding up the business.REVEL used to teach philosophy and the book marked the end of philosophy for him .................................As for me,I resigned myself to reconsider what philosophy could encompass and given the huge number of possible answers I knew that I would have to be patient!
