incomprehensible

Recommended Posts

I just recently read that there are trillions of galaxies , this is totally beyond my comprehension, my puny human brain can't take in that figure ,  how the hell was that many formed and WHY?  Some thing or someone must have constructed it and if so why so impossibly vast? What was the purpose? I would imagine there are quite a few theories but regardless what is said we will never know the answers. some times I wonder if  we are all living in a dream or this is all an illusion , it so damn frustrating,    James Dixon

Why do you think someone must have created it? Why do you think it must have a purpose?

The galaxies were formed when clouds of gas collapsed, due to gravity, and formed stars when the density became great enough to cause fusion.

Study quantum physics and science.. it will take you closer to the truth for sure.

'Why?' is not a Physics question.

Are you religous?

Doesn't it say somewhere in the bible or book of common prayer,  'world or worlds without end' ?

Moderator Note

This is NOT a physics subject. Moved to Religion.

I think what we are seeing through the hubble telescope are not in fact galaxies or stars. I tend to think that without evidence we cannot assume that we are seeing Suns like our own.

The concave sphere surrounding our planet is most likely the firmament.

Indeed the evidence supports the view that most are not like our own.
Have you ever sought out any evidence?

I am always appraising new evidence.

I suggest you take a look at my thread Time to Rethink Earth's Motion.

Depending on how one defines "like", I suppose.

They are (nearly) all balls of gas powered by fusion. Like our Sun. But there is a huge variety within that.

Like this?

That has a nice flat earth, that I guess you will appreciate, as well.

New evidence?

 

And what about existing evidence?

Thankfully the world is full of people much brighter and smarter then yourself, who are able to accept the scientific evidence and methodology, and reject the interjections of nonsense you chose to inject into various threads.

Liar liar pants on fire.

Agreed...It does one good to have a hearty laugh on occasions: A shame though that you are the butt of that laughter.

I did.

It suggests to me that you need to learn a lot more science.

Ordinarily, I would say that text  needs a couple of  commas.

I tend to think that, without evidence, ...

But in this case I think it's accidentally correct.

That's true; we can't assume that.
However we checked and what we found suggests that they are stars more or less like the Sun.

They are not, for example, camp-fires.

They certainly are not all the same thing (reflected in a bodged celestial sphere).

 

We can form an hypothesis that they are stars, and we can test that hypothesis. Thus far, for the mots part, that hypothesis holds.

Not for the planets, and not for the dark matter, but that doesn't meet this description

I think he should have dropped the word "that"...
