The Stuff Forever (or of nothing) that could no longer contain itself as a singularity, changing its form and ‘banging’ into a universe, obviously met a constraint that was being built up to in its wave form—since matter and spacetime came after the ‘bang’, as a low probability, but guaranteed (eventually), event, so we can go on to say about the only possible wave state of the Forever Something.

By
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 60,050. Language: English. Published: May 25, 2010. Category: Nonfiction » Social Science » Sociology
I show that natural selection is not a properly scientific theory & provide a rigorous but subtle alternative with immensely important implications for society. Respected intellects & journals refuse to even look at this work & others ridicule it by taking words wildly out of context. Give Darwin (& me!) some respect - a book that overthrows his theory cannot be understood on a quick skim reading!
