Frank Tipler on the Singularity Atheists Keep Trying To Evade

Intelligent Design The Future show

Summary: On this episode of ID the Future we hear commentary on the singularity from Frank Tipler, Professor of Mathematical Physics at Tulane University and co-author of The Anthropic Cosmological Principle. This isn’t the supposed future singularity imagined by transhumanists, but the evidentially well-supported singularity at the foundation of the the Big Bang. The equations are clear, says Tipler: This singularity had an existence outside of space and time, was intrinsically infinite, and not subject to any laws of physics--among other arresting features. Atheists today still resist this conclusion, Tipler says, but only this conclusion has experimental support. You may also be interested in Science Uprising episode 4 "Fine Tuning: You Don't Suck!
