I wonder what I'll find out next!

This is Matthew Dominic Hunter's 'blog.

 

Bibles, Brains, and Arrogance


I think human brains are too small to fully comprehend either the creation of the universe or the evolution of the universe. We fool ourselves with our little theories (or faiths), and we think we are so smart!

A human brain weighs about 2 kilos. One scientist estimates the mass of the known universe at about 1066 kilos (a number large enough to defy human comprehension). There is no way we can model everything happening in the universe, all we can do is selectively attend to a few phenomena and extrapolate.

Interesting how the average Bible weighs about the same as the average human brain ...
