Infinite universe given the flat Earth treatment


"Outrageous" ... Cosmologist Dr Janna Levin believes the theory that the universe has no end is flawed. Photo: Edwina Pickles

Janna Levin has a knack of making people forget the world's troubles. Instead of terrorists and war with Iraq, she ponders a somewhat deeper problem - whether the universe stretches for ever.

The Cambridge University cosmologist suspects the popular notion that the universe has no end and is filled with infinite matter and stars is flawed.

"It is quite outrageous ... it certainly sounds absurd," she said, noting the infinite theory took hold last century, after Einstein produced his theory of general relativity despite his own uncertainty.

"Einstein said: 'Only two things are infinite. One is the universe and the other is human stupidity.' But then he added: 'I am not sure about the universe."' ...

Peter said:

"Dr Levin has her theory, but that's all it is. She can't even test it!"

On the contrary, she COULD test it. If we all chipped in a couple of dollars we could probably put the woman on a rocket ship straight to nowhere. When she never came back, then we'd know.

Thanks Luke for your comments on my comments.
The gospel starts in Genesis with an understanding of the atributes of God, His holiness and our sin.
If we get into theories of our own imaginations we are ignoring the word of truth that God has given us.
We are to preach the gospel and God uses it as a means to save people and make them a new creation in Christ Jesus, but our preaching ability is not responsible for saving anyone. We must always prreach the truth, God must save. Only the infinte God can change the heart of man.

If the Bible implies that the universe is spatially finite or infinite, I have yet to uncover that mystery: please, let's keep focused on our highest priority of sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Her real problem is not that her god is too small, but that we are too busy with obscure theological and philosophical speculation to clearly and effectively convey the gospel to a world that is more than happy to ignore our ranting.

Dr Levin has her theory, but that's all it is. She can't even test it! This is more of an assumption than the flat earth theory, who were at least oging on their sense of sight from the only vantage point they had. We can understand their mistake, but she has no such excuse.
Just turn to Genesis chapter one and read. "In the beginning God" ie there was a beginning of time, before which nothing existed except the eternal Godhead. The Trinity was there before the beginning in eternity. That is why God was there in the beginning. Time only began when He made the heaven and the earth (time has no meaning without a reference point, mass, distance and energy)
I suggest that if we went in a straight line and came to where we started, it probably means that the rudder needs fixing morethan proving that space is bent.
Her real problem is her god is too small and finite like most materialists. When she stands before the eternal God on "Judgment Day" she will probably understand eternity better, although if God saves her before then she will probably abandon her theory for the eternal God.
Anyhow this statement is just designed to get publicity and create interest in her new book to generate sales. Einstein was right about the infinite universe, he was justmaking a joke about the stupidity of man and Janna is one of those he was talking about.
