Singularity = Miracle

Miracle - “An effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers.”

Miracle - “An event that appears inexplicable by the laws of nature.”

Because it took place without the aid of the laws of physics / science, indeed, because it did not even require natural and material involvement, the Singularity, the beginning, the Big Bang Creation Event is a working definition of a miracle.

Great, you acknowledge that miracle events are impossible!

I thought that Theists like you believed in miracles?

LOL, you did not think of it that way didn't you?

Except the existence of the singularity is explained by very well understood physics; how baryon asymmetry was initially violated (or if it was) is the issue currently being investigated with several models currently being tested. If there is a mechanism for baryon asymmetry to occur at the local level with particle/antiparticles segregating through an as yet unknown mechanism. If this is the case, that would explain some of the "dark matter" in the universe.

In any event, you're still relying upon the false dichotomy of "if not x, then god." This is the flaw underlying all of your logic.

Son, neither baryon nor any particles existed. Nor was there any space for them to exist in. Prior to the singularity, NOTHING existed.

"explained by very well understood physics"

"Prior to the singularity, NOTHING existed."

You forgot: Except God.

I'm half asleep at the moment but wouldn't it be better to say "Prior to singularity is currently UNKNOWN."

Makarios said...

It would be better to say, according to Big Bang cosmology everything came from nothing.

It would be better to say, no one knows and be wary of those who claim that they 100% do.
