It seems many religious apologists are obsessed with the BGV Theorem, seemingly convinced that it provides irrefutable evidence that physical reality has an absolute beginning at the Big Bang. But does the BGV Theorem really show that the universe definitely began to exist?
I've been quite interested in the physics behind the apparent "fine-tuning" of the universe recently, so I decided to invest in what appears to be a well-regarded review of the subject.
"From Eternity to Here" offers an expertly thorough exploration of the nature of time, covering a wide range of concepts in theoretical physics in exquisite detail. The major focus is on time's relation to thermodynamics and entropy, but Carroll goes above and beyond the basic considerations and takes the reader on a journey touching upon a plethora of mysteries in modern physics.
