Go to: Einstein & Faith

karlJ's Avatar Jump to comment 39 by karlJ

Bonzai, I really agree. It's just that most people invoking Einstein do it as a bat, to bat down on the other side. Not many people refer to him as the previous century greatest thinker. This makes me sad, and somewhat angry. You should not use that "icon" to promote your own flimsy thoughts.

Go to: The God Delusion is one of the Ten Best Audiobooks

karlJ's Avatar Jump to comment 16 by karlJ

Audio books, in general, not this one particularly, I can't stand them. How can anyone listen to it?
How do you regulate the pace of the "reading", make it go as fast or slow as you want? how do you skip forward and backward? how do you omit things you already know or feel is just filling. This audio book invention must be for the laziest of lazy nonthinking lazily people accepting whatever (minister speaking to congregation comes to mind).

How does it matter if Einstein was a believer and what he believed? Isn't that now just an argument bat for both sides wanting beat each other on the head with it in an impossible to win argument.

Go to: How Did the Universe Survive the Big Bang? In This Experiment, Clues Remain Elusive

karlJ's Avatar Jump to comment 6 by karlJ

The birth of the universe 13.7 billion years ago created equal amounts of matter and antimatter.

I fail to see how true this statement is (the equal part). Isn't it more of an assumption?
