# Hard core science!

Here’s something that will make you smile. A professor is claiming he can prove the existence of God using what he calls ‘hard core science’. Yea, I know you’re all impressed with his nomenclature, but there’s more. He also claims quantum physics can prove the birth of Jesus, and the resurrection story. It seems like everyone under the sun loves to use quantum mechanics to justify their crackpot ideas.

The only person in the entire story who made any sense was Bishop Eddie Long, who stated, quite correctly, that science cannot prove the existence of God since the whole thing is supposed to be about faith. But don’t tell Franky boy that; he’s already working on a book about it. I’m sure it’ll be a page turner…

Wow, it finally makes sense. Dark matter = Jesus Christ. And they wondered if we could ever come up with a theory of everything!

I’m not sure what’s more disturbing about this story. Is it the fact that this man is allowed to teach at a university or that the only person in this story that seemed to exude a little bit rational thought was a baptist minister.

By simply using the universal model of computation :

x[x := N] â‰¡ N

y[x := N] â‰¡ y, if x â‰ y

(M1 M2)[x := N] â‰¡ (M1[x := N]) (M2[x := N])

(Î» y. M)[x := N] â‰¡ Î» y. (M[x := N]), if x â‰ y and yâˆ‰fv(N)

AND := Î» p q. p q p

OR := Î» p q. p p q

NOT := Î» p a b. p b a

IFTHENELSE := Î» p a b. p a b

( I think it’s pretty Clear)

A simpler equation would be :

(Î» n.(1, if n = 0; and nÂ·((Y g)(n-1)), if n>0)) 5

1, if 5 = 0; and 5Â·(g(Y g)(5-1)), if 5>0

5Â·(g(Y g) 4)

5Â·(Î» n. (1, if n = 0; and nÂ·((Y g)(n-1)), if n>0) 4)

5Â·(1, if 4 = 0; and 4Â·(g(Y g)(4-1)), if 4>0)

5Â·(4Â·(g(Y g) 3))

5Â·(4Â·(Î» n. (1, if n = 0; and nÂ·((Y g)(n-1)), if n>0) 3))

5Â·(4Â·(1, if 3 = 0; and 3Â·(g(Y g)(3-1)), if 3>0))

5Â·(4Â·(3Â·(g(Y g) 2)))

So there you have it, definitive proof that Professor Tipler’s, cheese has slid off his cracker.

I wasn’t sure at first whether this man had an extremely unorthodox view of science, or an extremely unorthodox view of god, then I realized he was just fucking crazy.

Ah, he’s not the first to try and say “I’ve proved God, but it’s really complicated”. Euler (mathematician) did it in a theological debate. He said “Sir, (a+b^n)/n=x, hence God exists; reply!”

With Euler’s reputation as an excellent mathematician his opponent did not dare oppose him, even though it was absolute gobbledegook.

There are also some rather nice mathematical and logical proofs of the existence of the Flying Spaghetti monster in the book “The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster”. Yum yum!
