    Not enough of this type of thing lately so I thought I'd try it out.



    I'll start...




    If the human brain can come up with the concept of infinite why can it not comprehend it? (Infinite that is)




    Hmm.:rinsed:

    the blue whale's heart is the size of a small car and it has arteries that a human could swim down.

    the infinite question is similar to this:
    what is the universe? fair do's, its a big space (to dumb it down a bit) but does it just go on forever?

    I'd define comprehend, then seek the proof for "can't comprehend" before answering the first question if I was being rigorous (formally brain, concept and infinite should also be defined).

    However if by comprehend we mean "understand" or "being able to manipulate", well I'd say the concept of infinity is quite well understood and is used easily and fluently in mathematics. If by comprehend we mean encompass - then that is impossible since the human mind is not infinite in itself. Probably.

    Not chemicals but a point of infinite energy but infinitely small which exploded giving rise to the universe - however the question arises - how&why did that point occur. This allows the Roman Catholic Church to accept Big Bang theory, since God could have been the originator behind the Big Bang.

    You know that bit at the end of Men In Black where our universe is shown to be a marble in an alien's marble sack? That could be true.

    Idiots explain this by saying that the Bible mentions dragons. It does.

    You have to be a special kind of idiot to believe the Bible is literal truth.

    Some religions cop out when faced with science and just say that God created the universe, set its laws and allowed it to evolve - according to his plan (see previous comments).

    this may b me being a buzz hed. but... if u dnt beleive in god... u must beleive in science..

    and at the end of the day there is no explaination for the first 'infinately small' energy being there in the first place... unless god put it there!?!?

    OR... maybe our whole universe as we see it, is actualy a microscopic particle on something on a far larger scale!?!?!?!?!

    but then... how that thing on a 'far larger scale' become? chemical reaction????

    see what im gettin at?
