Exceptions To The Rule: The Speed Of Light (And Gravity?)
We normally expect within our reality and in the physical sciences for there to be a fair degree of consistency. When consistency is broken, then one has to really sit up and take notice and try to figure things out, for things are not always as they seem. One such anomaly with respect to consistency is the speed of light and its relationship to velocities in other contexts.

The Simulation Hypothesis: Evidence From Physics
If physics is inconsistent it's more likely we're in a computer simulation. If physics is internally self-consistent then it's more likely we're in a really real reality. Alas, we have contradictions / inconsistencies in physics - relativity vs. quantum mechanics for example. Therefore, according to cosmologist George Smoot (on YouTube), you exist in a simulation and physics can prove it. However, here's my initial collection of evidence from physics.

Materialistic Thinking - Rational or Irrational?
A materialistic way of thinking assumes that science is the be-all and end-all of human knowledge. Those who have this outlook claim that the methods of science are the only reliable ways to secure knowledge of anything. But should we really treat science as our exclusive guide to reality? Are there no other credible sources of knowledge and understanding about our existence?

Science - Does It Invalidate Religion?
New imaging technologies allow science to measure blood flow and neural activity whilst people are meditating and praying. Science claims it can predict and measure religious experience in this way. Atheists like Richard Dawkins are saying this is evidence that religious experience is nothing more than natural activity in certain parts of the brain. From this they conclude that there is no such thing as any supernatural reality. There is an alternative interpretation. Just because religious experiences are accompanied by predictable brain activity, why should this mean they are caused by it?

The Cosmic Creativity in Modern Science
In Einstein's theory of relativity, the notions of events (space and time simultaneity), mass and energy equivalence (special relativity), space expansion (big bang) as well as space and energy-mass equivalence, are introduced. General theory of relativity combined to quantum mechanics leads to the emergence of the whole universe from zero and absolute nothingness. Such "emergence - creation" of the universe from zero does not take place in space or time, since both are identical to the universe, space as energy expansion of the vacant space and time as a measurement unit of movement and change.

Motion and Intelligence
If you find symmetry, uniformity and orderliness in a moving system, then it is assured that there will always be an "intelligence" confined to the system itself or external to it causing the optimum motion for the sustentation or preservation of the aggregate to which it forms a part. This is the general rule. Let's think about motion and intelligence which go unnoticed.

Eugenics: Dark Past of Selective Breeding
Eugenics was first studied as a way to pass on desirable traits, like intelligence, among humans. It began its shadowy and often debated turn in the United States in the late 1800's when it became a study into the possibility of breeding out undesirable traits, rather than breeding in desirable ones. In 1911, the United States founded the Eugenics Records Office in New York. This department was dedicated to studying family histories of those who were deemed "undesirable," and the conclusion was reached that "undesirable" individuals came from poor families with no real social standing, minorities and immigrants. Most shocking was the "conclusion" that being poor was not due to poverty itself, but due to genetics.

Opposing Intelligent Design Is Not Intelligent
Are we and the world we observe the product of mere fortuitous natural actions of nature? Or is there something or Someone higher than nature, something that made and ordered nature? Believe the first, and you may become fully devoted to exploring the mysteries of nature - a scientist, a worthy ambition, indeed. Believe the second, and you may find God. Believe the second and find the God of nature, and you will see nature in a whole new light. It is past time for the educators in our world to put aside their bias against the Bible and admit that there are incredible signs of "purposeful design" in the world we know. In fact, the more you study real science, the more evidence you discover about this fact.
