We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Evidence? For what?

For his claim early in Chapter One of his Astrophysics for People in a Hurry that “nearly 14 billion years ago, all the space and all the matter and all the energy of the known universe was contained in a volume less than one trillionth the size of the period that ends this sentence.”

Now don’t get me wrong. Neil is a nice guy and the videos he’s in are fun to view. And in a post below I will tell you a reason to cut him some slack, but we here at AU have a label we put on the act of believing without evidence. We call it faith.

Neil’s claim is extraordinary, and you know what kind of evidence such claims require. Don’t pause your breathing until he produces it, but do put a little heat on him.

Since no one was around at the beginning of the universe, all that can be done is deduce how everything started. 

Ethan explains the thought clearly: https://medium.com/starts-with-a-bang/ask-ethan-how-do-we-know-the-...

I have no idea what happened at the beginning of the universe but as theories go the big bang theory is a well-supported hypothesis. But it's not the only one. Just follow the science.

The point is, no matter what deduction you may find valid, or at least interesting, we know it isn't some dipshit god. =)

There is no dipshit god.

People who don’t understand, science may be stuck with a deism to define god - though I found that most religionists don’t even know what deism is.


There has been a collision between science and religion since the enlightenment.

It’s shameful the collider wasn’t built in Texas. I recall there was talk about building it under Davis California (U.S.A) as well. At least the LHC was built in Europe with American support and funding.

The Higgs boson was discovered. Unfortunately it was called the “God Particle” I blame that on superficial news media.

Its great that LIGO was built in Hanford Washington (U.S.A.) and Livingston Louisiana (U.S.A) along with Virgo near Pisa Italy. They were able to measure gravitational waves.

Understanding gravity may be more important to understanding the universe than electromagnetic fields.

Of course I don't. I don't like therotical physicisicits who play the media either.
