Trapped Some AntiMatter

I've read they have trapped some antimatter for 15 minutes at CERN. Are you all as clued up about this as I am (which is not at all ... I am baffled!)

Actually, Steveng, when I see a science program, I think "And here is the hand of God."

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 6/15/11


Atheist, read carefully. I wrote "Be a man not a mouse and attempt an answer.That is your unwillingness to attempt an answer makes you a mouse-you misunderstood that!

Now you have had the courage and humility to admit you have no answer-no longer a mouse. I suggest you transfer a little of this new-found humility to the way you relate to Christians here. You do not have answers to basic questions but expect Christians to have answers to everything. You asked a nonsense question about who created the creator. If you had a little Bible knowledge you would know it says the Creator God is eternal, therefore not created.

But in your story: is matter eternal, or did it create itself. Quite a puzzle for you.

What prophecies have come true?
---atheist on 6/15/11


\\Read the entire bible from beginning to end and continually think of science.\\

The Bible and science are dealing with two different things. It's like saying a cookbook conflicts with a Beethoven symphony.

There's an Italian proverb which say, "The Bible does not say how the heavens go, but how to go to heaven."

Just last night I was watching a science program, and it said that there are realities beyond those we can see and measure and infer.

As Christians, we already knew that.
---Cluny on 6/15/11


I'm sorry, Kathr, I don't follow what you are saying. I suggested that between you and Donna, there was "hardly any difference in what you are saying" and I meant with regard to the real important issue that God did it.

I did not use the word exact, nor 100%, and I can't see that Donna has either.

Maybe I have missed a couple of her posts?
---alan8566_of_UK on 6/15/11




Kathr4453 -- I have no argument with you. I have no disagreement with the Word of God. (And I'm sorry you think I do)

(At least a few people understood my comments about the big bang. I'm thankful they took the time to read what I said.)

Kathr4455, I will continue to express myself on these blogs, as we all have a right to do... Calvinists, Arminians, Trinitarians or Non-trintarian,Baptist, Penetecostal, Orthodox.
But please relax a little. You seem to be wound a bit tightly.
And, please, do not read my posts searching for personal insults aimed just at you.
---Donna66 on 6/15/11


Warwick, thank you for clairfying here. I agree with you 100%. Now I guess since donna66 is saying the exact same thing as I am, which is saying the exact same thing that you are, then we're totally square here. There is no BIG BANG. Right donna66, alan?

So donna66, what was your question to me you posted twice...Was that you agreed 100% with my statement and Warwick's statement? You just stated your 100% agreement in such a way that it was confusing to see we were all saying the same thing.
---kathr4453 on 6/14/11


Kathr I also said (but not printed)that when God made all the universe, there would have been a huge noise. Who is to say it was not a big bang? The Bible does not say what instruments God used.

And Warwick, I am surprised that you do not see the difference between the Big Bang, and a big bang.

I'm also suprised that both of you seem to think that there is such a great difference between Donna & Kathr, bearing in mind the vastly more important agreed fact that God did it.
---alan8566_of_UK on 6/14/11


atheist: "Revelation is fiction. No explanation needed."

But suppose that it isn't?

Besides, if you really dig deep in research, you will find that the prophesies of the bible actually did predate the event that occured - even by hundreds of years. This is one way to prove that the bible is accurate in its prophesies. If 100% of all past prophesies in the bible came to pass then you would assume that 100% of all future prophesies will come to pass, right?
---Steveng on 6/14/11


God wouldn't need six days to create the heavens and the earth. All he would need to do is snap his fingers and allow evolution to takes its course.

Besides, isn't this topic one of those frivolous debates that can't be won since we were not there when God created everything or, to appease atheist, at the big bang?
---Steveng on 6/14/11




Kath4453 I just expressed an idea to consider...that maybe the "big bang" does not actually contradict the Biblical account of creation, and gave my reasons why. (I was not talking about evolutionary theory in any way).I'm not saying there WAS a big Bang.

This is just a matter for speculation...not a doctrinal dispute.
---Donna66 on 6/14/11


\\ It is an hypothesis constructed by people whose aim is to show how the universe, and everything in it began. It is a Godless belief.
\\

It was a Catholic priest, Georges Lemaitre, who first proposed what became known as the Big Bang theory.

The then current hypothesis was that the universe was constant, unchanging, and had always existed. Einstein criticized it saying, "Your math is excellent, but your physics is terrible."

Pope Pius XII liked the theory because it actually was consistent with Genesis. But scientists rejected it at first PRECISELY because it "smacked of creationism." The name "Big Bang" was coined to ridicule it.

Did you all know that?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 6/14/11


Warwick,

Sorry, but my answer to that question is the same as it ever was. I do not know. I have no problem admitting that there are questions that I, and many others do not have answers to.

That does not make me a mouse. Nor does your answer that god did it, either answer the question or make you a man.
---atheist on 6/14/11


"...where did that material originate from?....Be a man not a mouse and attempt an answer."---Warwick

I do not know. I do not know if it "originated". I do not know that if I could perceive everything, that "that material" would not be just a small part of everything else.

I am not afraid to say I do not know. If in your "science" that makes me a mouse, then you have a strange science indeed.

BTW, that is hardly a simple question, unless your answer is God,---which is no answer at all.
---atheist on 6/15/11


Kathr ... You yourself said ... "Their Big Bang would need something, one little speck of something"

But God's Big Bang would not need that little speck of something ... it would just need God.

And even if there was that little speck .. who made it? God

And who made the speck Bang? God.

What is wrong with that?
---alan8566_of_UK on 6/15/11


Heb 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
.

So, to tie your sure Faith to an everchanging science would be silly. But isn't science a sure way to lure one away from a sure faith, believing God when He already told us : that the things that are seen were NOT made of the things which do appear..

---kathr4453 on 6/15/11


Kath, the Big Bang theory has nothing to do with Scripture. It is an hypothesis constructed by people whose aim is to show how the universe, and everything in it began. It is a Godless belief.

I see no mention of a big bang in Scripture therefore have no need to believe such a big bang ever occurred!
---Warwick on 6/14/11


As I say Atheist you cannot or will not answer even the simplest of questions. Let me carefully explain it to you: You are an atheist, you believe there is no God. However I assume you believe you are material, not spirit, and that you actually exist. Therefore being material, where did that material originate from?

Is such matter eternal? Or did it create itself?

Be a man not a mouse and attempt an answer.

Or maybe you can suggest a cogent alternative?

There I go with more questions.
---Warwick on 6/14/11


alan, no difference? I do not believe in any big bang. So I guess there is no difference between what Warwick and donna66 are saying either. Let's see if Warwick thinks they are saying the same thing.

If Warwick comes here and states that there was a Big Bang God began the creation with, then that will be that.


Warwick????? What say you?

James,

Yes. It's an infinitely repeating recursive loop.

Doesn't matter whether it started by just starting, or you say god started it. One step back and you have to ask what started the start, or what started the god.

Same problem.

Warwick,

Your storyline question does not make sense to me, and why are you asking me? Why can't there be more possibilities in your long-ages evolutionary story? It's your story, your fiction...

---Donna66 on 6/13/11


Donna66, I hope you're not trying to start an argument here with me. Again playing with words now saying God's Big Bang.

You are right, I don't need to apologize to you or anyone for totally disagreeing with any big bang theory.

Are you sugesting God first spoke chaos and then made order out of it?

In the beginning God created the heavens and earth, and The EARTH was without form and void and darkness fell upon it..

I BELEVE is when 1/3 of the angels fell and turned complete order into chaos here on earth, NOT the whole universe.

After God created man and man sinned darkness FELL AGAIN on man.
---kathr4453 on 6/14/11


It's no different than those who want to put scientific explainations behind Moses parting the sea. Ask a scientist HOW that happened. Or all the pleagues that happened to Egypt. They certainly will try to find a scientific explination for it.

And scientists cannot explain the virgin birth of Christ, except to say..well, we have known that there are humans who are both male and female and can in fact reprorduce within themselves.

Faith has nothing to do with scientific facts.

Will scientists be able to explain the Return of Jesus Christ or al that goes on before His return? Yep they will try to explain it away, taking your eye off the truth.

Donna the Big Bang hypothesis is an idea created by people who reject God's truth about beginnings. It is part of the long ages evolutionary story which is definitely not from God. It is mans speculative story from the beginning up till now. A Godless story.

There is no mention of any big bang in God's word so there is no need for us to try to fit it into Gods revealed Truth.

To do so is akin to the idea that God used evolution to create, which is contrary to Scripture, and contradicted by Scripture.

The big bang is coming, see 2 Peter 3:10
---Warwick on 6/13/11


Cluny there is no Scripture which says that one day is a thousand years to the Lord. This is a misquote, and you have misquoted it before. It was then shown to be a misquote but you use it still.

However even if you were correct it would be irrelevant as God has no days and Scripture obviously talks of 'day' in human, not God's terms. Does God arise at sunrise, or man? Did Jesus rise on the third day or the third thousand years as you would have us believe? Has He not yet risen then?

Large Scale Weather Control Using Nuclear Reactors
Author Singh-Modgil,

Subject category: Other Fields of Physics Abstract.

It is pointed out that controlled release of thermal energy from fission type nuclear reactors can be used to alter weather patterns over significantly large geographical regions. (1) Nuclear heat creates a low pressure region, which can be used to draw moist air from oceans, onto deserts. (2) Creation of low pressure zones over oceans using Nuclear heat can lead to Controlled Cyclone Creation (CCC).(3) Nuclear heat can also be used to melt glaciers and control water flow in rivers.

This came off a CERN Server.

After the big bang, Genesis tells of God differentiating matter into water, atmosphere, life forms etc.

Strongaxe, when I talk with my scientist friends who have expertise in a wide range of fields they talk of order. They say that behind the amazing order shown throughout our universe is a God of order. There is no way known that an explosion could bring about the mind-boggling order which surrounds us.

Further the genetic code is not a product of matter but information imposed upon matter. How could this come about by random chance following an explosion!

No the big bang is coming!
---Warwick on 6/12/11


Cluny, in Genesis God says He created in 6 days. Note the word 'day' with a number. This formula is repeated in Exodus 20:8-11 where God says His 6 creation days and 7th of rest, are the same length and the foundation for the human 6 days of work, and 7th of rest.

Day with a number is used as singular or plural 408 times elsewhere in Scripture and it always means an ordinary 24hr day.

Steveng:

Can you show any evidence that God placed light from distant stars artificially, without placing the stars there first to generate that light?


Warwick:

Order and chaos alternate, like layers in lasagna, at higher and higher levels of structure.

Most kinds of order produce complex, emergent behaviors whose behaviors cannot be easily predicted, and appear chaotic. (For example, atoms bouncing around in space). In turn, chaos produces order, since it can be predicted statistically (for example, gas in a room behaves predictably - it doesn't all rush to one side.)

If you throw a grenade into a china shop, even though the china is destroyed, the shards follow ordered statistical distributions.

---jerry6593 on 6/12/11


Donna66:

In normal matter, protons are positively charged, and electrons are negatively charged. In antimatter, the reverse is true. Other than this, matter and antimatter would have identical physical properties.

If an electron and anti-electron (i.e. positron) meet, they annihilate and release two high-energy photons. A proton and anti-proton similarly annihilate each other.

Since the universe contains gas, meteorites, etc., matter constantly interacts with other matter. If ANY were antimatter, we would see intense explosions. Since we don't, antimatter is non-existent or far away. The universe could contain planets, stars, and even galaxies of antimatter, but they would have to be far away from matter ones.

They carry opposite charges, but don't cancel each other out! (My hunch is, but I don't know, that the same principle applies here)
We know what "matter" looks like... it's easy to identify. What does "anti-matter" look like and how do we measure it?

\\There was NO Big Bang!\\

What do you think Genesis 1:1 says?

They both say the same thing: that time and the physical universe have a definite beginning. There was Nothing (in the physical universe, that is) and then there was Something.

In any case, it is foolish to compare scientific theory with Genesis, as they are approaching the subject differently.

A better comparison with Genesis would be the creation stories of those cultures contemporary with the Bible. There you will see great contrasts. In some of them, the physical universe engendered the deities.

alan8566_of_UK:

Matter and anti-matter do not completely annihilate - they generate energy released as photons.

Still, 15 atoms is microscopic - just enough to show that it can be done.


Cluny:

Jerry ... Yes, but the theory also says that if the two (matter and anti-matter)come in contact with each other, they will annihilate each other ... so there would once again be nothing!
says that.

The only way matter can survive that contact is if there had been more matter tna antimatter.

So that means that out of nothing, the BB must have made more matter than antimatter.

But perhaps there is something which separates matter from antimatter ... I wonder what we should call that?

Bolster?

Don't feel bad. Only recently have I been able to wrap my head around black holes.

Despite the trashy novel by Dan Brown and the movie based on it, they have isolated just enough antimatter at CERN to blow up a teacup.

There is more potential energy in a firecracker than in all the energy at CERN.

While Wikipedia should be approached with caution, you can probably find out all you need to know about antimatter there, or on the Discovery Science Channel--or British equivalent.

sometimes I think they(scientist) use words/phrases like this to underestimate what really does matter! That God really does exist.

Alan: And just what was this anti-matter trap made of? Matter or anti-matter? Just kidding. It was probably a magnetic bottle.

Did you know that the Big Bang theory predicts that the same amount of anti-matter was produced as matter? Strangest thing though, they can't seem to find any naturally occurring anywhere in the universe.

Alan, what does one do with antimatter?

You use it to power up the USS Enterprise.
