Scientists Are Coming For God, Phil Collins

“A foremost goal of modern physics is to formulate a working theory that describes the entire universe, from subatomic to astronomical scales, within a single framework. Such a theory, called ‘quantum gravity,’ will necessarily account for what happened at the moment of the Big Bang. Some versions of quantum gravity theory that have been proposed by cosmologists predict that the Big Bang, rather than being the starting point of time, was just ‘a transitional stage in an eternal universe,’ in Carroll’s words. For example, one model holds that the universe acts like a balloon that inflates and deflates over and over under its own steam. If, in fact, time had no beginning, this shuts the book on Genesis.”
Sean Carroll, a theoretical cosmologist at the California Institute of Technology, talks to Live Science’s Natalie Wolchover about why “there’s good reason to think science will ultimately arrive at a complete understanding of the universe that leaves no grounds for God whatsoever.” Personally, I think the book should have been shut on Genesis a long time ago. Like, if not immediately following Peter Gabriel’s departure in 1975, then definitely after Abacab in 1981.
