This might blow your minds...

Up till now, I've been keeping my religion versus science posts fairly simple on News24. It's part of the job description, and years of writing for the web has lead me to write for the audience I expect to have.

Since I am no longer a commercial writer (although I will soon have a book out that you can all take a gander at), I realised I don't have to do that anymore.

So let's take it to the next level.

Even those of you who are naysayers about science can agree that atoms exist, right? That they have various particles, in varying ratios, and that they are the building blocks of all matter. It's an observable thing to, thanks to the nuclear weapons and power stations we have. We know that atoms exist, and what their nature is.

Or do we?

You see, there's research that shows that the particles that make up atoms are not solid. They're made from waves. Frequencies. Sound.

Yep, everything you can see, touch, taste or smell is made up from sound waves, according to a whole lot of really clever nuclear physicists. Not biologists mind you. A whole different branch of science this.

The good news, for all those of you who believe in the bible, is that it appears to have got that part right, at least.

You know how, in the beginning of the bible, it talks about god creating the world, and the 'word' and all that? Well, a word is sound, and since we know know that atoms are made up of sound, it's true that the very first sound (which you interpret as the word of god) COULD very well have been the catalyst in the creation of everything.

The bad news is that the further you go down this particular rabbit hole, the more you will learn about parallel universes, quantum physics and other tricky topics, all of which will lead you to question everything you believe once again (or not, depending on how brainwashed you are.)

Still, you can take solace in the fact that at least one part of the bible might be right, according to science. I'd be watching this space closely if I were you. But while you're watching, you might want to rethink the rest.

AIDS, Acronyms and Game Theory

Last night I attended an interesting event hosted by a society I belong to. Our speaker was a young virologist, Dr Britta Flach, who told us all about the HIV virus and how finding a vaccine for HIV has been a very tough road to navigate for scientists working in the field.  Read more...
