The universe shouldn’t exist, scientists say after finding bizarre behaviour of anti-matter


The most elite scientists in the world are still struggling to find why exactly our universe didn’t destroy itself as soon as it came into existence. That’s what science says should have happened – but it clearly hasn’t, since you’re here reading this, as far as we know.

Science has derailed.

    The White Male patriarchy!

      That’s the best patriarchy.

        It’s true!
        All other patriarchies are inferior.
        Oh my God, now I’m a western chauvinist TOO!

    Oh, see the little doggy.

    Contrary to local consensus I’m still here. 🙂
    Mind you the scientists’ consensus about AGW was wrong from the getgo also…
    Probably had something to do with converting Imperial to metric (I told them that was a big mistake, but did they listen to me? NOooo.)

      My Late neighbour was a career Experimental Physicist; he had NO use for Theoretical Physicists. Claimed they were totally incompetent.
      Since he’s gone back to being stardust I guess I can’t get his opinion on THIS

        I think they make stuff up to get grant money.

    I’m hoping that it turns out – as is being tested now – that anti-matter falls up instead of down. Hover-boards at last!

    I’m Christian and I believe that God made the universe and that’s why it doesn’t destroy itself.

      Or is God the Universe? Endless scope for thought.

    • David Murrell

      As a church-going Baptist and ministry worker, I agree.

    • PaulW

      So do I, but I also believe that He wants us to understand as much as we can – there’s nothing wrong with trying to fathom the nuts and bolts of the universe’s creation (though perhaps a hopeless task).

      • Lightstream

        I agree.

  • tom_billesley

    The “most elite scientists” are often outdone by the lowliest.

  • Is it a calf, a camel, a pony? Notice its left index finger pointing up.

    • Science moves forward by asking difficult questions and looking for possible answers. If no questions were asked or allowed, no answers would be found. That a question is raised is not proof of the stupidity of science, but proof of (ideally) its honesty and objectivity. When science proposes a theory, it is putting forward the best idea it has found so far – without meaning to claim that this is its final position.

    This is a difficult scientific chasm to get across. Much more beer will be needed.

      Scotch and Drambuie is my preferred means of contemplation.

  • canminuteman

    Maybe they should go back and recheck their assumptions, data, and calculations.

    They would know all the answers if only they looked towards the science of Islam!
