Here's another video. I'm often asked how there can be no God if the chances of our planet being habitable are so slim. This is the reason why.
Here's a fascinating thing I learned about recently - how simple the origins of electromagnetism are.
In particle physics we have one of the most accurate and successful theories ever - the Standard Model - but there are many things about it that seem "out of place".
Symmetry may be very familiar and intuitive to us, but how can we talk about symmetry mathematically? We know that triangles and spheres both possess kinds of symmetry, but how are they related? The mathematics of symmetry can be described by "Group Theory".
Well, I'm trying my hand at making videos with my trusty whiteboard. Here's a video of me rambling about the nature of light.
It's a phrase you'll often hear if you try and press physicists for answers to the most difficult questions. "What happens at the center of a black hole?", "What happened in the first moments of the Big Bang?" Modern physics is currently not advanced enough to be able to give answers to these questions.
I think that "atheism of the gaps" is a legitimate fallacy, but not one that atheists often make. I think this term has the annoying potential to be thrown incorrectly at atheists if it starts becoming mainstream.
I really wish people would stop planting the laws of thermodynamics in their arguments as if they're an irrefutable line of defence. Thermodynamics is 19th century physics, we've moved on.
This is why I say that the universe must contain time. The universe is best thought of as a static 4-dimensional shape of which slices are all we can perceive. What really bites is that we all perceive different slices of this 4-dimensional shape, and how would that be possible if the universe were only 3D?
