Some of you may not even believe an increasingly popular atheist claim going around these days, that “nothing created everything”. Supposedly smart people like Hawking, Krauss etc. are all now claiming that the universe could create itself out of nothing.
They all try the same little magicians trick of making something disappear, when we all know its hiding under the table, up their sleeve or simply by smoke and mirrors. What is it that they all desperately try to make disappear? Well gee, it ain’t hard? Something, that’s all.
And what magicians technique do they all use to do this with? Some form of quantum physics. Always. Why? Because its the only way you can fool the public. You have to use tricks that the average Joe doesn’t know much about. Then you have to present this trick in public with adequate levels of hand waving and slanted logic, in just enough doses to fool the gullible.
Thankfully, thank God, the average Joe off the street still doesn’t buy the trick as being “real magic”.
So how is this done basically, in layman’s language? Its really easy. All you have to do is lie. All you have to do is present a lie as truth and say it quickly enough, all while subtly redefining a term here or there. If you do it right, a whole slew of gullible people will believe the lie. In the case before us, all you have to do is redefine the meaning of the word “nothing”, so that it actually means something, but something so abstract and unclear that a lot of people don’t see the obvious differences.
One such trick, used by Lawrence Krauss, and now all of his mislead disciples, none of whom seem bright enough to discern wherein the magic lies, is equating the mathematical abstract we call ZERO, with true physics nothingness -i.e. the absence of everything, of anything at all in the material sense.
This is one of their favorite tricks. And you know, the worst and possibly saddest thing about hits is that even they can’t see wherein the magic lies, beyond reality, in their little tricks! Still the trick is obvious.
Zero isn’t nothing. Zero is an abstract number – a mere symbol- we use to describe an exact equilibrium or physics nothing, but in this context stating that because the sum of energy in the universe equals nothing the physical nothing is not the valid meaning of zero! In this context it means equilibrium.
Now these people love to use this number as both meanings at once, (bait and switch tactic) whereas, in truth, it cannot be used with the same meaning simultaneously! The two meanings or definitions of zero here are mutually exclusive. An equilibrium between two forces, for example, is NOT nothing! Yet we still use the mathematical symbol Zero or 0 – the form doesn’t matter at all – to represent this equilibrium.
Its like claiming that because the books balance,, there is no money in the account. Not very bright.
This is not hard!
Let me give a very simple example that really does fit, in an analogical way, quite exactly to the New Atheist claims that nothing created everything.
Lets use an example form the world of accounting as per financial things. We all know what it means when we say, “the books balance”, right? Balanced accounting ledgers simply mean that the actives are exactly equal to the passives. Now in the actual books, how is this written? Why with a zero, ie the graphical representation of zero as “0”.
So here’s where we can easily spot the tricky atheist maneuver that so easily blinds most atheists, and people looking for answers that don’t really understand what’s being discussed – and even many that should but don’t and many that do but pretend not to!
Question: when the books are balanced, does this mean there’s no money in the account?
Answer: Of course not.
Can you imagine the chaos in the whole world of finance and accounting if zero and nothing could change meaning to some “scientist’s” interpretation of the symbol, changing it whenever he pleased!? I’m not exaggerating here, not at all.
On a recent “discussion” that I had with a very devoted disciple of atheist priest Krauss, a fellow who claimed to be well educated in this area of physics told me, rather adamantly (as atheist always do), that nothing can indeed create everything because the sum of the energy in the universe equals nothing.
Of course he was then referring to this Zero being both equivalent to a real “nothingness” AND the mathematical abstraction “ZERO” both at the same time. You remember I just pointed out that this doesn’t work – except when the abstraction Zero is indeed used to represent a real absolute nothingness.
This may seem like quibbling over a definition, but the difference is nevertheless fundamental.
So, I asked this poor fellow if he understood that if this “zero” in his sense, meant that the universe does not exist. To my own astonishment, even with all these years of being used to atheist nonsense, he replied, yes. So obviously I was forced to ask him if that means the universe is nothing, i.e. it doesn’t really exist. And again to my continued astonishment he relied with a resounding, YES. Then I had to rephrase the whole thing, just to be sure, into a “So you’re telling me that the universe doesn’t exist?”. Though I couldn’t believe he’d really understood my question, or he surely was just joking, he still said, Yes.
So there was I, an innocent theist, facing a very intelligent atheist, who was seriously telling me, without any qualms at all, that neither he nor I nor anything else really existed!
I’m pretty sure that if you search out this, for lack of a better term, mind-blowing, conversation between an intelligent human being, and someone that doesn’t exist, you’ll be able to find it over there on that most prestigious of all scientific discussion sites, youtube.
I’m sure you’ll be strongly tempted, perhaps by the devil, to post a resounding, ROTFLMAO, as I was; and sadly I couldn’t help but to succumb, forgive me oh Lord, to such a temptation.
The books balance, my friends, therefore all that money in the account created itself, from ‘nothing’. A child as old as the one in the picture would be giving a nice face palm for such pitiful bull crap at this New Atheist desperate move to get rid of God – no matter how stupid it makes them look.
