  1. String Theory is starting to make great strides in completing a picture of our universe ...

  2. Hi aphie,

    I looked at your reference. The final paragraph reads:

    "So, when did time begin? Science does not have a conclusive answer yet, but at least two potentially testable theories plausibly hold that the universe--and therefore time--existed well before the big bang. If either scenario is right, the cosmos has always been in existence and, even if it recollapses one day, will never end."

    It looks like we will have to hang on a bit longer to Genesis, whether the Chit-Chat addicts like it or not. Scientific American is not on to "Science" yet but still requires us to believe in "existence" of things like time. They don't explain what "time" is though. Simply believing it is a gismo that existed well before the big bang will do.

    Thanks aphie, I love this kind of stuff!

    Be good,
