  • You have to be a big believer, mister CHRISTian, to believe that all complexitity accidentally came to be from one big bang, coming suddenly from nothing. There appears to be no meaning for everything to be 'created by the Universe'. I believe that you should change 'the Universe' by God the creator. Who made all creation with intent and meaning. You can read this history in the book He, the creator, left us: the Bible.

    Please stop spreading this theory and start spreading the Word of God.

  • Western stupidity.
    He is more stupid than his professor and the next professor is more stupid than him. Why …
    Because a complex of the universe is yet to be discovered . We still cannot imagine how complex it is .
    Every electron is more complex than we can imagine . Good luck with your smart scientists.

  • Does he realize that he's contradicting his own original premise? Complexity from non complexity Does not make sense!

  • "Have those who disbelieved not considered that the heavens and the earth were a joined entity, and We separated them and made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe?" A translation of the Holy Quran, 21 Al-Anbya (THE PROPHETS). Verse 30. One of the miracles of the Holy Quran a verse revealed 1400 years ago explaining the idea of the Big Bang. Praise be to the God .

  • I am not sure there is any real value of using the benefit of hindsight to assert that conditions were right for life to self create…especially as there is no known precedent.

  • The main cause of global warming is the sun. I figured that out all by myself. I'm like a scientist or something. Also, wisdom is knowing what you know and what you don't know. People who think they know everything make it very difficult for those of us who do. Nice video, which has everything and nothing to do with my daily routines. Help, I'm addicted to YouTube. I have spoken. Peace 😁😁
