The ten false assumptions of modern day science
False Assumption #1) The universe is mechanical
False Assumption #2) All matter is unconscious
False Assumption #3) The total amount of matter and energy is always a constant
This assumption of modern science is especially suspicious given that even conventional cosmologists readily admit that 96% of the universe has yet to be detected at all. That’s the “dark matter / dark energy” portion of the universe, and to my knowledge, neither dark matter nor dark energy have ever been directly measured or seen by human scientists.
Except for the theoretical Big Bang, there is no phenomenon by which modern scientists believe the totality of matter and energy can come into existence or exit our universe.
This assumption is especially bizarre considering the theoretical framework of the Big Bang theory, which claims all the known matter and energy in the entire cosmos spontaneously appeared without cause, all on its own, without any intention or reason. The Big Bang theory — and its accompanying theory of cosmological inflation – are, by any definition, a bizarre kind of material mysticism that goes to great lengths to deny the existence of a creator / designer / engineer / intelligent advanced civilization / etc.
False Assumption #4) The laws of nature are fixed
This, too, is an assumption that looks to have already unraveled thanks to the efforts of a few modern-day scientists themselves. As a simple example, multiple physics experiments are now being conducted all over the world — and widely replicated — which show “faster than light” teleportation of information via quantum entanglement.
As just one example of this, here’s a ScienceDaily.com article describing faster-than-light quantum teleportation spanning 143km:
(In theory, instantaneous quantum teleportation could take place over a billion kilometers. The distance makes no difference. Quantum teleportation ignores the apparent laws of physics, including the “cosmological speed limit” known as the speed of light.)
According to classic laws of nature, such quantum teleportation is impossible. In fact, all quantum computing should be impossible, and come to think of it, transistors shouldn’t function either. But they do. And they do it by breaking the classic laws of physics.
Yet the far stronger argument for challenging false assumption #4 is found in multiverse theory which states that our known cosmos is just one of an infinite — yes, infinite! — number of other universes, each with its own variation of the laws of physics. Only in a small fraction of all universes is, for example, the strength of the weak nuclear force set at precisely the right number to result in the formation of stars, planets and carbon-based life. But because there are an infinite number of universes, there are also an infinite number of universes where the laws of physics exactly equal our own… and even where “mirror” human civilizations almost perfectly reflect our own.
Look up the “anthropic principle” if you’d like to dig into this subject a little more. Or read Goldilocks Engima: Why Is the Universe Just Right for Life? by Paul Davies.
