Universe In Danger of Popping Out of Existence

Physicists from the European Organization for Nuclear Research or CERN, for some reason, have issued an ominous warning to the governments of the world. Based on the conclusions of the best modern physics, an unseen danger lurks just beyond the bend of the horizon of our every day reality, which receives very little attention from our available stockpiles of fear.

While there is much talk in the media about the risks of global warming, near earth object collision and superbugs decimating humanity, no one talks about the more obvious danger: that the Universe should suddenly pop out of existence.

It is well known among scientists that at some point in the past, the Universe with all its physical laws and energy came into being from nothing, uncaused and without any preceding material or physical necessity. With such fundamentally unpredictable behavior, there is real risk that at any moment the universe could simply pop out of existence according to the very same metaphysical principles.

When this event happens, nothing will have ever happened. We will all be doomed, and not doomed. This event will disproportionately impact women and minorities, added CERN's lead physicist Joran van Sloot.

While we as observers may perceive time as something that 'happens' and takes a while, that may just be a subjective viewpoint, and at any moment the universe could abruptly cease to exist, taking with it the entire past -- thus causing every moment that ever existed to cease existing simultaneously, in the greatest of all imaginable cataclysms.

There are good grounds for expecting this to happen eventually, as a simple matter of statistics. In the infinite time horizon of the future, every eventuality must occur by logical necessity, including ultimately the random disappearance of all physical reality in an inversion of the event that kicked it all off.

When that happens, the event will reach back into time and destroy us all with as much suddenness and as much effect as the initial popping into existence. Everyone should be aware of this danger and take the proper precautions, and not underestimate the suddenness with which it may occur.

Everyone out there, stay safe.

haha, yes he was

I think he also read Mencken :)

mencken, elitist that he was,

mencken, elitist that he was, would view the modern phenom of internet atheism and popularizer philosophysics with disdain. at least the religious boobs had a little charm and aesthetic appeal. the modern b00b is without any redeeming qualities. he is just the mass mob man, conceited ape, graceless, the debris of civilization, the last man.

It's called humbleness in the presence of awww.

Learn some respect, spacegazer.001.

i dont get it post an onion

i dont get it post an onion link instead

Such a good logical argument...

The universe could NOT have come from nothing!
It came from God! Who came from nothing!

But Sir didn't you just introduce a solution to the problem with the exact same problem?

I love how the Big Bang Theory is disregarded by God fearing people and simply replaced with an explanation that has THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM.

I offer you no solutions. You

I offer you no solutions. You need to get a refund.

While I admire your wit, you

While I admire your wit, you simply refuse to engage in a serious discussion of your viewpoints. I imagine you have a very inflated opinion of yourself.

No wit. I have offered you no

No wit. I have offered you no solutions. You need to stop trying to graft positions onto others so you can argue with them. If you have a question ask it.

Had me until that LMFAO!

When have you heard of physicists, who, "for some reason,

have issued an ominous warning"? They don't really stick their necks out on things like this, in Europe, or elsewhere, EH? That was my first clue, but definitely as you caught, the, "impact", point!

Could help thinking of scriptural parallels. Here's one to ponder:

"But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
)The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
)But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
)Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
)Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
)Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness." - 1 Peter 3:8-13
