Are there any other fans of FABRIC OF THE COSMOS out there? I found it to be perhaps the most fascinating science show ever produced. The information in the show is nothing less than stunning and definitely changed my view of the universe. Some of the information is so stunning that it is hard to comprehend. But guess what? Even physicists have a hard time getting their minds around it.
And an oatmeal cookie to the first person who can post who the major backer of this series is.
I saw one episode and thought it was well done.
I’m a big fan of “The Universe” on the history channel so this is probably right up my alley.
GUESS who the major underwriter of the series is?
Four full episodes, FYI;
The Universe: God and the Universe (44:15)
Religion has been offering explanations for the universe’s origins throughout history. Has science finally come closer to proving the existence of God or showing that divine intervention didn’t necessarily play a role?
Thanx for the link. I think I am going to watch the whole series over again later. Some of the stuff I probably need to watch several times in order to wrap my mind around it. Hard to absorb it all in the first viewing.
It turns out that the DUmmies might actually be right about Alternate Universes. I wonder in how many of the Alternate Universes that Al Gore became president?
You might like these too.
I haven’t seen Fabric of the Cosmos yet, but will now watch it because of your post. Thanks!
The idea of alternate universes isn’t new. There was talk in the scientific community back when I was a kid. I don’t put a whole lot of stock in “man’s” understanding when it gets into the theoretical.
You act as if both(faith and science) can not coexist. They must! It’s Ono when one side denigrates the other, that there is a problem. Science is supposed to provide the facts, the end user is the one responsible for the placement of those facts in the larger scheme of things.
The book of that title, by Brian Greene, is excellent.
David H. Koch!
An oatmeal cookie is on the way. BTW, I laughed when I saw who the major underwriter of the series was. According to the DUmmies, the most EVIL person in the Cosmos.

I think the main reason (and I might be wrong) for the theory on the alternate universes is that if the force of gravity was just a small fraction greater or less than what it is then the universe couldn’t exist. Therefore our alternate universe won the crapshoot of many universes. What is truly astounding is if we were the only universe and very conveniently had EXACTLY the correct gravitational force that ensures the existence of this universe.
String theory is an attempt to tie everything together.
