Parallel Universes

Post by sweetandsour » Wed May 20, 2020 10:16 pm

Seems they're making the trending news lately, like they're big news or something. So, the latest one is upside down and going backwards? Hell I thought everyone knew that already.

If there are parallel universes, I would like to believe in at least one of them I'm a rodeo clown.

There's at least one. How else could you explain a God without beginning or end, who knows everything before it happens?

A few years ago, one of my friends and I came up with a theory about Christ's first and second comings being some sort of multiversal singularities, and how that would impact the timing of everything. Letting our nerd flags fly.

This theory would seem to strip eternality and omniscience as attributes of God.

Scientists have finally solved the answer to our fallen world, in a purely physical and materialistic way. Congratulate them.

Abstract: Scientists have discovered evidence of the real universe. Our universe is the one that is running backwards and falling apart.

So is the guy in the mirror the real me or is he the reflection or is he both? He is left handed and backwards. Great looking guy though. I need to jump over the backwards running universe and go back to correct a few things.

Why not a skew universe?
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.
