Furthermore, the author of the Arizona Atheist blog asked Vilenkin if his theorem with Guth and Borde proves that the universe had a beginning. The Borde-Guth-Vilenkin singularity theorem (or BGV theorem) was developed in by three leading cosmologists; Arvind Borde, Alan Guth. I was watching A debate on cosmology where William Lane Craig uses the Borde , Guth and Vilenkin theorem to say the universe had a.

If vlenkin singularity is something that exists, it was a real state of affairs of the Universe Craig nails it best: In the encounter with Dr. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

According to this theory the universe is approximately 14 billion years old.

Under some circumstances the blueshift will reach “infinite rapidity” or the speed of light within a “finite amount of proper time or affine parameter “. The BGV theorem states that even in an inflationary universe, timelike and buth geodesics are not past-complete, i. All science that exists must be free of assumptions.

Now Ryan writes in with a good correction to what I said earlier. So that even if our universe is just one part of a much grander set of universes called the multiverse, the multiverse itself then would require a beginning, or what has been called by some as a; beginning of beginnings.


Borde-Guth-Vilenkin singularity theorem

Therefore, science cannot be permeated with assumptions. At the heart of the matter is that you do not want give glory to a creator.

This is speculative, and very metaphysical rather than physical and actually scientific it seems. He does not, he uses Vilenkin as further proof of the big bang. Have something to add? So there seem to be two points of discussion within creationism regarding the BGV theorem.

Please help by adding reliable sources. Without a self, a practice cannot exist, nor can an accounting exist, nor can an assumption, for these are not inert states vilenkkin being adjectives but actions of agency verbs.

Universes pop up ad infinitum “, Stanford News, 01 April In other words, the giant Mickey Mouse did it. You need to quantize gravity.

Others need to lie to themselves, and even build an entire career based in their need for self-deception. Such an appeal to metaphysics is not illicit because Hawking is making a metaphysical claim that God cannot create the universe because the singularity is not in physical time, a reductionistic move which no theist should accept.

Dec 20, 1. In the interim, there is always some boorde, inscrutable — and usually untestable — materialistic hypothesis ready to be wheeled on to the stage, to be propped up by hook or by crook, even if that means ignoring the very knowledge that we praise the sciences for helping us to attain, allowing that, in the final analysis, it might all just be more ignorance in disguise, which, evidently, is a conclusion far more desirable than the existence of God.


Subsequently in recent years since, the BGV theorem has become widely respected and accepted within the physics community.

The BGV theorem does not violate the “weak energy conditions” usually assumed in singularity theorems, this is because it does not even require any energy condition in the first place. The “something can’t come from nothing” argument – Page 19 – Religious Education Forum.

Adding a preinflationary phase to the history of the universe sidesteps this pitfall. We have exceptions, like Islamic countries, of course, where I can be killed by saying the truth: A theoretical physicist who has been working in the field of cosmology for 25 years, Vilenkin has written over papers. Your name or email address: Usually the emphasis by creationists is the age of the universe and Earth first and then argue about existence of God later.

You can evade the theorem by postulating the universe was vilenoin to some time.
