Atheists, are you sure that the universe is purely an accident?
Topic: Lack hypothesis meaning
May 22, 2019 / By Allannah Question:
if you are an atheist am sure you have done your research to disprove the hands of intelligence in the creation and continuation of the Universe.
But have you wondered how everything that guides the physical laws of the universe have established the possibility of the evolution of life.
For example, take a look a the law of Gravity. Thanks to it, the mattter that came out of the big bang was able to condense into stars and planets. Gravity establishes order with all cosmic matter. Thanks to the law of gravity our planet exists today. ........ Now whats important here is that the LAW of gravity or the force of gravity is a natural force emitted by all matter....... Before the big bang there was no matter. so all the physical laws were established after this collosal explosion.
But coincidentally the laws that were established were just the right ones for us to be here today.
I guess the real question is, what was before matter existed?
Son of man,
good to hear from you again.
The law of gravity is a physical law this is not an oversimplification. It is a force in which all PHYSICAL objects are subject to. no matter the size. But its magnitude is proportional to size this is why planets and stars have substantial gravity.
And as far as the big bang goes it is described as a colossal explosion of compressed matter. This is why the universe is expanding and why galaxies are movies away from the center of the universe. This is how the big bang theory came to be.
So education may be lacking but not from me!
Whether or not they were made for us, i guess depends on the point of view.
I believe the universe has a purpose. so my perspective is going to take this into account.
In my opinion the universe as is earth and life is in a state of constant evolution. I believe that the ultimate purpose of it is the creation of life. Evolution is proof that a continuous process is taking place with life here on earth. IF you expand that principle to the cosmos things start to make sense.
now this is an assumption, but you really cant prove me wrong.
I realize that you like using big words with little meaning.
The ability to express yourself simply is the best measure of intelligence.

Actually, there was matter before the big bang, in the form of a singularity. In the big bang, that matter expanded and cooled. And no, not all physical laws would necessarily have been defined at the big bang; the matter in the universe existed before the big bang -- just in a very small space.
If you look at the accordion universe hypothesis, it's quite possible that there have been several big bangs and subsequent contractions. I don't understand the math behind that hypothesis, but I'm told it's sound.
As for the laws of matter that make life possible. That's a tautology, and it's an old argument that the cosmological variables that exist to produce life had to be "just so." But, then again, that's assuming any other universe would have to have the same variables at all.
At any rate, the universe appears to produce a lot more black holes than life. So if anything, its intent was the production of black holes.

The implication is that it could have been different. The Higgs field may have had different properties, or it may not have existed at all.
Assuming the Higgs field actually exists there are four possible explanations:
(1) The "it had to be like that" hypothesis - Something in the makeup of the universe means the Higgs field had to have those properties, therefore it is not an accident.
(2) The luck hypothesis - Things could have been different. We are incredibly lucky that they weren't. Therefore it was an accident.
(3) The God hypothesis - The chances of the Higgs field having the right properties are infinitesimal, therefore an intelligence must have designed it like that. Therefore it is not an accident.
(4) The multiverse hypothesis - The Higgs field, and everything else about the universe, could indeed have been different. In fact, there are an infinite number of possible universes in which the various constants, laws and starting conditions are different. Every possible universe exists. We live in the one that allowed us to evolve to observe it. Therefore it is not an accident.
"But coincidentally the laws that were established were just the right ones for us to be here today."
That's one way of looking at it. The other way would be, is that all those fundamental forces of nature (gravity, electromagnetism, strong, and weak force) and other complex laws that govern our universe were created along with billions of light years of wasted space just so that there can be life in just one tiny speck of the universe.
No, the laws weren't made for us; we were made for those laws. scientists speculate that there can be different laws that govern different universes (if they exist), and that there could be almost infinite number of different universes. There is nothing special about our universe or our planet or our galaxy or any of it for that matter. Look at the big picture, anyonebutyou. we are simply part of a whole, nothing else.
Now, for the picky details...
gravity establishes order with all cosmic matter yes... but don't forget at the largest scale, dark energy dominates the universe (which is why we are currently expanding at an accelerating pace). and who told you that there was no matter before big bang? big bang theory doesn't concern with happened before the "bang". as far as the theory is concerned, the matter always existed. for you to say that is a huge assumption and no one knows (or has the ablity to) find the answer to that question just yet.
...of course, even as i type this, science continues to search for answers, while religion still insist they are right about everything based on "faith"...

Newton's "law of gravity" was an approximation of how gravity works in macro systems. It did not even attempt to explain where gravity came from.
So the law is not a "physical law". You oversimplify, perhaps because a lack of education. Your emphasis on "law" strengthens this view.
Einstein's general theory of relativity is currently the theory that best explains gravity, although there is not a complete understanding yet.
And I fear you see big bang as an actual explosion. Again, oversimplification. And you should also know that big bang does not state something came out of nothing.

I think you're confusing physical laws with spoken/written laws.
Additionally, you're incorrect in assuming that before the Big Bang there was no matter. In fact Big Bang theory clearly states that the matter was merely in a _different state_, not non-existent.

Let's say nobody knows for sure how the universe came to be.
How is it reasonable to assume that some god must have done it? How is this a testable hypothesis?
If "god must have done it" is the stock response to all questions, knowledge could not progress. We might as well live in the dark ages when theocracy ruled.

We are part of the universe and developed from it. So it would appear to have order to us while we're in a part of it where and when we can be.
I don't think the world or the universe or life or us were created. And there might never have been such a thing as Nothing if you count space as something, although Stephen Hawking explains how particles/waves can spontaneously come into existence in his book The Grand Design;I suggest you read that book..
The universe formed following expansion and opening up of some spatial dimensions; and research is seeking answers about how the universe was some billionths of a second after the "big bang", notably the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
We might have to continue to have the humility to admit that we don't know everything for a very long time - perhaps forever; and I prefer this instead of hanging onto the kind of pride that won't admit we don't know it all and evokes supernatural beings, which I don't consider plausible.
The reason we're here living in the "Goldilocks Zone" ("Just right!"), talking about it is because this is one of the places and times in which we can exist.
The universe is something around 13.7 billion years old, and is so immensely big on our scale that we can't imagine its size - and it's still expanding. It contains billions of galaxies, each containing billions of stars, at least some if not all of which have planets orbiting them. So if anything can happen, the chances are a virtual certainty that at some place at some time, it has happened. And we're here at this time, because this is where and when we can be. If you extend this Anthropic Principle to the hypothesis about the Multiverse, of which our universe is one of billions, that makes the chances even more of a certainty.
So there doesn't have to be a reason for things existing, nor is there any need for supernatural beings of any kind, let alone God. Space, matter, energy and forces behave the way they do on their own. And life and evolution are part of that, as is the experience of Self which is a construct of the brain and our senses.
