why we are,
we need to
what we are
is a particle so small
that it can pass through you, then
through the earth and not touch or
ENERGY and DISTANCE
imagine a firecracker exploding...POW!
flash and explosion...now imagine a
firecracker so big that the explosion lasts
for hundreds of years. imagine a explosion
that happened so far away that it took
167,000 years for the light (at 186,000 miles
a second) to get to us to see it. a SUPER
NOVA is what happens to stars that are
roughly 100 times bigger than our sun.
MAN vs TIME
the universe is 15-20 billion years old.
the earliest genus of hominids (man-like,
upright walking primates) came from a more
distant ancestor between 5 and 8 million years
ago. 8 million is .0004% of 20 billion.
so if the universe were a 3 hr movie, man's
part would start with 4.32 seconds left...
|EARTH vs UNIVERSE
the earth revolves around a smallish
ordinary star, the
the sun has a
diameter of 1.39 million kilometers or
860,000 miles and is 100 times bigger
than the earth. the sun is one of 100
billion stars in the milky way galaxy.
from what we see of the universe,
there are 100 billion galaxies, each
made up of about 100 billion stars...
(one star, R Doradus, has a diameter
370 times the Sun)
this much of the universe we are conscious of with our
5 senses and
all our instuments and tools. it is estimated that there
is 10 to 20 times
more stuff (dark
matter) that we can't even detect!
for suggesting that the earth
was not the center of the universe...
my faith, beliefs and "religion" are based in
developing man's understanding of life and the universe
-from my AOL profile
the above quote should pretty much summarize all the information
my ideas are based on principles which i feel are "widely accepted"
ofcourse, since this forum is primarily controlled by me and my prejudices,
objectivity will waiver at times. the perfect example is that i won't
technical definition of what is "widely accepted" unless otherwise
and that leads me to my next point...
a key to this forum will be outside input. i believe in total information
exchange and i crave critism! i scream for scruntiny! so
PLEASE if you find any of the following-
i also will use information and data from experiments from
incorrectly used laws or principles
any enhancements that will improve ths forum
additional information that would be useful
any relevant websites, discussions, mailing lists, TV shows, etc
outside sources to form my own ideas and conclusions.
a lot of research has been done by respected experts in their
individual fields that goes into the collective pool of man's knowledge...
