  • BIG BANG THEORY.

  • AT PRESENT, THE BIG BANG THEORY
  • 00:00:07.100 --> 00:00:09.000
  • REQUIRES THAT 96 PERCENT OF THE

  • AT THE BIG BANG THEORY,
  • 00:00:14.200 --> 00:00:15.160
  • IT STARTS TO FALL APART.
  • 00:00:15.240 --> 00:00:18.240

  • 00:00:18.240 --> 00:00:19.150
  • IS IN THE MOST PERFECT PLACE IN

  • ONE OF THE MOST BASIC
  • 00:01:51.270 --> 00:01:52.140
  • QUESTIONS...WOULD BE: WHERE DID

  • WE COME FROM?
  • 00:01:53.240 --> 00:01:54.260
  • DID WE COME FROM A BIG BANG
  • 00:01:54.260 --> 00:01:56.230
  • 14 BILLION YEARS AGO?
  • 00:01:56.230 --> 00:01:58.000
  • AND, IF SO, HAS LIFE EVOLVED

  • STARS FLOATING IN THE VAST

  • EXPANSE OF SPACE.
  • 00:02:10.110 --> 00:02:12.140
  • THERE'S A KIND OF A LORE TO
  • 00:02:12.140 --> 00:02:14.170
  • BELIEVING THAT WE'RE NOT ALONE,
  • 00:02:14.170 --> 00:02:15.280

  • IT'S AN ADVENTUROUS CONCEPT
  • 00:02:22.000 --> 00:02:22.200
  • THAT MAKES FOR GREAT MOVIES.
  • 00:02:22.200 --> 00:02:23.150
  • BUT WHAT ABOUT THE FACTS?
  • 00:02:23.150 --> 00:02:24.210
  • YOU SEE, SETI WAS FORMED OVER
  • 00:02:24.210 --> 00:02:26.100
  • 50 YEARS AGO, IN THE SEARCH FOR
  • 00:02:26.100 --> 00:02:28.080
  • EXTRATERRESTRIAL INTELLIGENCE.
  • 00:02:28.080 --> 00:02:30.190

  • TELESCOPES, VAST AMOUNT OF

  • MONEY, AND A LOT OF TIME AND
  • 00:02:33.100 --> 00:02:34.280
  • RESOURCES HAVE GONE INTO THIS
  • 00:02:34.280 --> 00:02:36.280
  • SEARCH, YIELDING NO POSITIVE
  • 00:02:36.280 --> 00:02:38.210
  • RESULTS.
  • 00:02:38.210 --> 00:02:40.100
  • IT SEEMS LIKE EVERY WEEK
  • 00:02:40.100 --> 00:02:41.220
  • THERE'S NEWS OF A PLANET FAR
  • 00:02:41.220 --> 00:02:42.230
  • AWAY THAT MIGHT SUPPORT LIFE,
  • 00:02:42.230 --> 00:02:43.180
  • IF ONLY...
  • 00:02:43.180 --> 00:02:46.080
  • YES, IF ONLY SEVERAL THOUSAND
  • 00:02:46.080 --> 00:02:47.160
  • FACTORS WERE PRECISELY IN LINE,
  • 00:02:47.160 --> 00:02:49.270
  • THEN THE PLANET'S DISCOVERY
  • 00:02:49.270 --> 00:02:51.290
  • WOULD BE ABLE TO SUPPORT HUMAN
  • 00:02:51.290 --> 00:02:52.290
  • LIFE.
  • 00:02:52.290 --> 00:02:54.070
  • EVEN THE MOST BASIC LIFE THAT
  • 00:02:54.070 --> 00:02:56.030
  • WE KNOW OF REQUIRES HUNDREDS OF
  • 00:02:56.030 --> 00:02:57.190
  • FACTORS TO BE TUNED TO

  • OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM THAT WE'VE
  • 00:03:02.000 --> 00:03:03.110
  • BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE ARE EITHER
  • 00:03:03.110 --> 00:03:04.200
  • TOO BIG OR SMALL, TOO CLOSE OR
  • 00:03:04.200 --> 00:03:05.280
  • TOO FAR AWAY FROM THEIR PARENT
  • 00:03:05.280 --> 00:03:07.030
  • STAR.
  • 00:03:07.030 --> 00:03:08.180
  • OR THEY AREN'T TERRESTRIAL.

  • THEY DON'T HAVE LAND,
  • 00:03:09.090 --> 00:03:10.090
  • WHICH...YOU KNOW, MAKES IT HARD
  • 00:03:10.090 --> 00:03:12.130
  • TO STAND.
  • 00:03:12.130 --> 00:03:14.010
  • WHEN WE LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE IN
  • 00:03:14.010 --> 00:03:15.120
  • THIS SOLAR SYSTEM, WE FIND THAT
  • 00:03:15.120 --> 00:03:16.210
  • NO PLANET COMES CLOSE TO THE
  • 00:03:16.210 --> 00:03:18.150
  • NECESSITIES FOR HUMAN LIFE.
  • 00:03:18.150 --> 00:03:19.280

  • ATMOSPHERE MADE OF POISONOUS
  • 00:03:21.150 --> 00:03:22.240
  • GAS OR A PLANET BATHED WITH

  • CALLED HOME.
  • 00:03:27.270 --> 00:03:30.270
  • THERE'S ONE MAJOR CLUE RELATED
  • 00:03:30.270 --> 00:03:32.050
  • TO ALL OF THIS IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:03:32.050 --> 00:03:33.240
  • THE BOOK OF ISAIAH TELLS US
  • 00:03:33.240 --> 00:03:34.250
  • THAT THE EARTH WAS FORMED TO BE
  • 00:03:34.250 --> 00:03:36.160
  • INHABITED.
  • 00:03:36.160 --> 00:03:37.260
  • THAT MEANS THAT IT IS
  • 00:03:37.260 --> 00:03:39.080
  • DEFINITELY A SPECIAL PLACE.
  • 00:03:39.080 --> 00:03:40.120
  • AND, NOT ONLY THAT, BUT IT'S SO
  • 00:03:40.120 --> 00:03:41.270
  • SIGNIFICANT IN GOD'S UNIVERSE
  • 00:03:41.270 --> 00:03:42.260
  • THAT HE SENT HIS SON, JESUS
  • 00:03:42.260 --> 00:03:45.020
  • CHRIST, TO EARTH TO DIE FOR THE
  • 00:03:45.020 --> 00:03:47.110
  • SINS OF THE WORLD AND BE RAISED
  • 00:03:47.110 --> 00:03:48.040

  • - DR. MICHAEL HOUTS: OH,
  • 00:04:27.100 --> 00:04:28.000
  • GREAT.
  • 00:04:28.000 --> 00:04:28.160
  • THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME HERE.
  • 00:04:28.160 --> 00:04:29.070
  • - DAVID: IT'S A PRIVILEGE TO
  • 00:04:29.070 --> 00:04:29.290
  • HAVE YOU HERE TO SHARE
  • 00:04:29.290 --> 00:04:30.160
  • THIS INFORMATION.
  • 00:04:30.220 --> 00:04:33.220
  • AND...WE ARE GOING GIANT TODAY,
  • 00:04:33.220 --> 00:04:35.220
  • BECAUSE WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT
  • 00:04:35.220 --> 00:04:36.260
  • THE UNIVERSE ITSELF AND ITS
  • 00:04:36.260 --> 00:04:38.220
  • ORIGINS, OKAY?
  • 00:04:38.220 --> 00:04:40.270
  • SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE SAID THAT
  • 00:04:40.270 --> 00:04:43.020
  • THE UNIVERSE MAY HAVE COME
  • 00:04:43.020 --> 00:04:45.010
  • ABOUT NATURALISTICALLY.
  • 00:04:45.010 --> 00:04:47.290
  • BUT YET, THE MECHANISMS FOR
  • 00:04:47.290 --> 00:04:50.110
  • THIS NATURAL ORIGIN OF THE
  • 00:04:50.110 --> 00:04:52.000
  • UNIVERSE ARE VERY VAGUE, AREN'T
  • 00:04:52.000 --> 00:04:52.280
  • THEY?
  • 00:04:52.280 --> 00:04:53.130
  • YEAH, AND SO, ONE IMPORTANT
  • 00:04:56.160 --> 00:04:57.130
  • POINT TO MAKE EARLY ON
  • 00:04:57.130 --> 00:04:58.000
  • IS THE-- YEAH, THE
  • 00:04:58.000 --> 00:04:59.100
  • THEORY'S POPULARLY KNOWN AS
  • 00:04:59.100 --> 00:05:01.160
  • "THE BIG BANG."
  • 00:05:01.160 --> 00:05:02.260
  • - DAVID: MM-HMM...
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:03.220
  • - DR. HOUTS: OR, ONE OF THE
  • 00:05:03.220 --> 00:05:04.120
  • AND, IT IN ITSELF REQUIRES A
  • 00:05:06.180 --> 00:05:07.080
  • SUPERNATURAL ORIGIN.
  • 00:05:07.080 --> 00:05:07.240
  • - DAVID: AH...
  • 00:05:07.240 --> 00:05:08.080
  • - DR. HOUTS: AND SO, EVEN
  • 00:05:08.080 --> 00:05:09.140
  • THOUGH IT MIGHT BE CLOAKED IN,
  • 00:05:09.140 --> 00:05:10.050
  • YOU KNOW, FANCY-SOUNDING
  • 00:05:10.050 --> 00:05:10.270
  • TERMINOLOGY, IT'S ALWAYS AN
  • 00:05:10.270 --> 00:05:11.230
  • APPEAL TO A FALSE GOD, BE IT
  • 00:05:11.230 --> 00:05:14.160
  • STARTED A SINGULARITY OR
  • 00:05:14.160 --> 00:05:15.040
  • SOMEWHERE OUTSIDE THE UNIVERSE,
  • 00:05:15.040 --> 00:05:16.210
  • THERE'S THIS MULTIVERSE
  • 00:05:16.210 --> 00:05:17.210
  • GENERATOR.
  • 00:05:17.210 --> 00:05:18.200
  • OR, DEPENDING ON WHICH PART, OF
  • 00:05:18.200 --> 00:05:20.270
  • WHICH VERSION OF THE THEORY
  • 00:05:20.270 --> 00:05:23.050
  • PEOPLE GO WITH, THEY ALWAYS
  • 00:05:23.050 --> 00:05:24.130
  • APPEAL TO THE SUPERNATURAL.
  • 00:05:24.130 --> 00:05:25.260
  • SO, I WANNA, RIGHT UP FRONT,
  • 00:05:25.260 --> 00:05:27.110
  • STATE THAT THERE IS NO
  • 00:05:27.110 --> 00:05:28.200
  • NATURALISTIC THEORY FOR THE
  • 00:05:28.200 --> 00:05:30.010
  • ORIGIN OF THE UNIVERSE, UH,
  • 00:05:30.010 --> 00:05:31.110
  • BECAUSE IT REQUIRES A
  • 00:05:31.110 --> 00:05:32.260
  • SUPERNATURAL ORIGIN.
  • 00:05:32.260 --> 00:05:33.210
  • OF COURSE--
  • 00:05:33.210 --> 00:05:35.010
  • - DAVID: SO, WE'RE NOT GOING
  • 00:05:35.010 --> 00:05:35.220
  • WITH OUR KNOWN LAWS
  • 00:05:35.220 --> 00:05:37.120
  • AND PHYSICS.
  • 00:05:37.210 --> 00:05:40.210
  • WE'RE HAVING TO APPEAL
  • 00:05:40.210 --> 00:05:41.090
  • TO A SUPERNATURAL POWER.
  • 00:05:41.090 --> 00:05:42.140
  • - DR. HOUTS: RIGHT, RIGHT.
  • 00:05:42.140 --> 00:05:43.090
  • BECAUSE THEY'LL SAY: WELL, THE
  • 00:05:43.090 --> 00:05:44.040
  • LAWS OF PHYSICS DIDN'T, YOU
  • 00:05:44.040 --> 00:05:45.020
  • KNOW, EXIST BEFORE THE
  • 00:05:45.020 --> 00:05:46.030
  • UNIVERSE EXIS--
  • 00:05:46.030 --> 00:05:46.170
  • TIME DIDN'T EXIST BEFORE
  • 00:05:46.170 --> 00:05:47.050
  • IT EVOLVED.
  • 00:05:47.050 --> 00:05:48.130
  • BUT THAT'S AN APPEAL TO
  • 00:05:48.130 --> 00:05:49.010
  • THE SUPERNATURAL.
  • 00:05:49.010 --> 00:05:49.180
  • - DAVID: YEAH!
  • 00:05:49.180 --> 00:05:50.020
  • - DR. HOUTS: YEAH, WELL, IT
  • 00:05:50.020 --> 00:05:51.020
  • KINDS OF REMINDS ME, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:05:51.020 --> 00:05:52.140
  • THE QUESTION WHEN, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:05:52.140 --> 00:05:53.140
  • GENESIS 1:1 SAYS, "IN THE
  • 00:05:53.140 --> 00:05:54.030
  • BEGINNING, GOD CREATED THE
  • 00:05:54.030 --> 00:05:54.240
  • HEAVENS AND THE EARTH,"
  • 00:05:54.240 --> 00:05:56.100
  • AND PEOPLE SAY: OKAY, WELL,
  • 00:05:56.100 --> 00:05:57.000
  • THEN WHO CREATED GOD?
  • 00:05:57.000 --> 00:05:57.250
  • - DAVID: UH-HUUUUUUH.
  • 00:05:57.250 --> 00:05:58.290
  • - DR. HOUTS: IF GOD CREATED
  • 00:05:58.290 --> 00:05:59.190
  • THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH, THEN
  • 00:05:59.190 --> 00:06:00.170
  • WHO CREATED GOD?
  • 00:06:00.170 --> 00:06:01.060
  • BUT THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT.
  • 00:06:01.060 --> 00:06:02.190
  • WHEN IT SAYS "IN THE
  • 00:06:02.190 --> 00:06:03.270
  • BEGINNING," THAT MEANS GOD
  • 00:06:03.270 --> 00:06:05.100
  • CREATED TIME, ALSO.
  • 00:06:05.100 --> 00:06:06.050
  • - DAVID: CREATED TIME.
  • 00:06:06.050 --> 00:06:07.160
  • - DR. HOUTS: BECAUSE GOD
  • 00:06:07.160 --> 00:06:08.110
  • CREATED TIME, HE HAS TO BE
  • 00:06:08.110 --> 00:06:09.140
  • OUTSIDE OF TIME.
  • 00:06:09.140 --> 00:06:10.200
  • AND ANYTHING OUTSIDE OF TIME,
  • 00:06:10.200 --> 00:06:12.000
  • BY DEFINITION, CAN'T
  • 00:06:12.000 --> 00:06:12.210
  • BE CREATED.
  • 00:06:12.210 --> 00:06:14.120
  • IT CAN'T HAVE A BEGINNING, UM,
  • 00:06:14.120 --> 00:06:15.250
  • BECAUSE IT'S OUTSIDE THE
  • 00:06:15.250 --> 00:06:16.230
  • DIMENSION OF TIME.
  • 00:06:16.230 --> 00:06:17.230
  • AND SO, FIRST VERSE OF THE
  • 00:06:17.230 --> 00:06:19.040
  • BIBLE ADDRESSES THAT PROBLEM.
  • 00:06:19.040 --> 00:06:21.200
  • AND, YOU KNOW, GETTIN' PEOPLE
  • 00:06:21.200 --> 00:06:22.110
  • THAT DON'T WANNA PUT THEIR
  • 00:06:22.110 --> 00:06:23.250
  • FAITH IN THE BIBLE, THEY TRY TO
  • 00:06:23.250 --> 00:06:24.170
  • TAP DANCE AROUND THE ISSUE OR
  • 00:06:24.170 --> 00:06:25.150
  • THEY JUST MAKE THINGS UP
  • 00:06:25.150 --> 00:06:26.240
  • OR TRY TO SOUND TECHNICAL.
  • 00:06:26.240 --> 00:06:28.130
  • BUT IT ALWAYS APPEALS TO
  • 00:06:28.130 --> 00:06:29.170
  • A...SUPERNATURAL ORIGIN.
  • 00:06:29.170 --> 00:06:32.060
  • - DAVID: AND YET, THEY CALL
  • 00:06:32.060 --> 00:06:32.260
  • IT SCIENCE.
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:34.000
  • AND THEY SAY THAT THERE'S THIS
  • 00:06:34.000 --> 00:06:35.010
  • ABUNDANCE OF EVIDENCE FOR THE
  • 00:06:35.100 --> 00:06:38.100
  • BIG BANG THEORY.
  • 00:06:38.100 --> 00:06:39.080
  • - DR. HOUTS: YEAH.
  • 00:06:39.080 --> 00:06:40.030
  • AT BEST IT'S RELIGION.
  • 00:06:40.030 --> 00:06:41.040
  • AND IT'S ALMOST TO THE POINT,
  • 00:06:41.040 --> 00:06:42.200
  • NOW, I WOULD ALMOST CALL IT,
  • 00:06:42.200 --> 00:06:44.230
  • ALSO, FAKE SCIENCE.
  • 00:06:44.230 --> 00:06:47.130
  • - DAVID: WOW.
  • 00:06:47.130 --> 00:06:47.290
  • - DR. HOUTS: SOME OF THE
  • 00:06:47.290 --> 00:06:49.190
  • REASONING BEHIND THAT: YOU
  • 00:06:49.190 --> 00:06:50.270
  • KNOW, RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE TO
  • 00:06:50.270 --> 00:06:51.250
  • MAKE UP ABOUT 96 PERCENT OF THE
  • 00:06:51.250 --> 00:06:53.050
  • UNIVERSE FROM THE BIG BANG,
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:54.030
  • BASICALLY FOR WHAT THE THEORY
  • 00:06:54.030 --> 00:06:54.240
  • WOULD PREDICT TO MATCH
  • 00:06:54.240 --> 00:06:55.110
  • OUR OBSERVATIONS.
  • 00:06:55.110 --> 00:06:56.240
  • UH, WE NEED ROUGHLY 23 PERCENT
  • 00:06:56.240 --> 00:06:58.190
  • OF THE UNIVERSE TO BE WHAT THEY
  • 00:06:58.190 --> 00:06:59.210
  • CALL DARK MATTER.
  • 00:06:59.210 --> 00:07:00.270
  • - DAVID: OKAY.
  • 00:07:00.270 --> 00:07:01.170
  • - DR. HOUTS: WE NEED ABOUT 73
  • 00:07:01.170 --> 00:07:02.080
  • PERCENT OF THE UNIVERSE TO BE
  • 00:07:02.080 --> 00:07:03.020
  • WHAT THEY CALL DARK ENERGY.
  • 00:07:03.020 --> 00:07:03.250
  • AND SO, WE'RE MAKING UP 96
  • 00:07:03.250 --> 00:07:05.040
  • PERCENT OF THE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:07:05.040 --> 00:07:06.150
  • AND SO, THAT'S CERTAINLY
  • 00:07:06.150 --> 00:07:07.070
  • NOT TOO SCIENTIFIC.
  • 00:07:09.050 --> 00:07:12.050
  • AND, WHEN YOU REALLY THINK
  • 00:07:12.050 --> 00:07:12.250
  • ABOUT THAT, IF I'M ALLOWED TO
  • 00:07:12.250 --> 00:07:13.160
  • MAKE UP THAT MUCH OF THE
  • 00:07:13.160 --> 00:07:15.240
  • UNIVERSE, WELL, IS THERE ANY
  • 00:07:15.240 --> 00:07:17.160
  • THEORY THAT SOMEONE COULD
  • 00:07:17.160 --> 00:07:18.160
  • POSTULATE THAT I COULDN'T FORCE
  • 00:07:18.160 --> 00:07:20.190
  • TO MATCH ANY...OBSERVATIONS I
  • 00:07:20.190 --> 00:07:22.220
  • WANTED TO?
  • 00:07:22.220 --> 00:07:25.010
  • IN OTHER WORDS, I HAVE MY
  • 00:07:25.010 --> 00:07:25.200
  • OBSERVATIONS...
  • 00:07:25.200 --> 00:07:26.250
  • - DAVID: YEAH?
  • 00:07:26.250 --> 00:07:28.060
  • - DR. HOUTS: ...THEN I CAN
  • 00:07:28.060 --> 00:07:28.260
  • MAKE UP 90 PERCENT OF
  • 00:07:28.260 --> 00:07:29.130
  • THE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:07:29.130 --> 00:07:29.260
  • AND THEN, I HAVE THIS THEORY:
  • 00:07:29.260 --> 00:07:30.170
  • WELL, IF I DO THAT, I MEAN,
  • 00:07:30.170 --> 00:07:31.160
  • THERE'S LITERALLY NO...
  • 00:07:31.260 --> 00:07:34.260
  • - DAVID: YOU CAN FUDGE THE
  • 00:07:34.260 --> 00:07:35.160
  • THEORY HOWEVER YOU WANT.
  • 00:07:35.160 --> 00:07:36.060
  • - DR. HOUTS: YEAH, THERE'S
  • 00:07:36.060 --> 00:07:36.280
  • ABSOLUTELY NO THEORY THAT I
  • 00:07:36.280 --> 00:07:38.040
  • COULDN'T PRETEND IS SUPPORTED
  • 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:38.250
  • BY MY OBSERVATIONS.
  • 00:07:38.250 --> 00:07:40.130
  • IT'S LIKE, WITHOUT GETTIN' TOO
  • 00:07:40.130 --> 00:07:41.040
  • FANCY, YOU KNOW, NO ALGEBRA
  • 00:07:41.040 --> 00:07:42.080
  • ALLOWED, BUT IF I SAY, "IF X +
  • 00:07:42.080 --> 00:07:44.160
  • Y IS 100, WHAT DOES X EQUAL?"--
  • 00:07:44.160 --> 00:07:47.050
  • WELL, JUST GIVE ME A NUMBER.
  • 00:07:47.050 --> 00:07:48.060
  • - DAVID: [STAMMERS]
  • 00:07:48.060 --> 00:07:49.080
  • FIVE.
  • 00:07:49.080 --> 00:07:50.290
  • - DR. HOUTS: FIVE.
  • 00:07:50.290 --> 00:07:51.150
  • YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
  • 00:07:51.150 --> 00:07:52.030
  • [DAVID LAUGHS]
  • 00:07:52.030 --> 00:07:52.160
  • 'CAUSE Y IS 95, YOU KNOW, X IS
  • 00:07:52.160 --> 00:07:53.250
  • 5, Y IS 95.
  • 00:07:53.250 --> 00:07:55.150
  • YOU'RE RIGHT.
  • 00:07:55.150 --> 00:07:56.030
  • THE ANSWER'S 100.
  • 00:07:56.030 --> 00:07:57.020
  • - DAVID: YOU CAN SOLVE IT NO
  • 00:07:57.020 --> 00:07:57.230
  • MATTER WHAT I SAY.
  • 00:07:57.230 --> 00:07:58.100
  • - DR. HOUTS: YEAH.
  • 00:07:58.100 --> 00:07:59.040
  • YOU SAID IT WAS 20, I SAY:
  • 00:07:59.040 --> 00:08:00.170
  • YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
  • 00:08:00.170 --> 00:08:01.100
  • X IS 20, Y IS 80.
  • 00:08:01.100 --> 00:08:02.190
  • THE ANSWER'S 100.
  • 00:08:02.190 --> 00:08:03.150
  • NOW, SAY, I GET DOWN THE ROAD,
  • 00:08:03.150 --> 00:08:05.130
  • I GET A LITTLE SMARTER.
  • 00:08:05.130 --> 00:08:06.010
  • I SAY: YOU KNOW, I REALLY WISH
  • 00:08:06.010 --> 00:08:06.250
  • THE ANSWER WAS 200 INSTEAD
  • 00:08:06.250 --> 00:08:07.150
  • OF 100.
  • 00:08:07.150 --> 00:08:08.020
  • - DAVID: UH-HUH...
  • 00:08:08.020 --> 00:08:08.200
  • - DR. HOUTS: OKAY?
  • 00:08:08.200 --> 00:08:09.250
  • WELL, GUESS WHAT?
  • 00:08:09.250 --> 00:08:10.260
  • YOUR TWO ANSWERS WERE FINE.
  • 00:08:10.260 --> 00:08:11.200
  • 'CAUSE, NOW, IF X IS 5, I JUST
  • 00:08:11.200 --> 00:08:12.260
  • MAKE Y 195.
  • 00:08:12.260 --> 00:08:14.030
  • IF X WAS 20, I JUST MAKE Y 180.
  • 00:08:14.030 --> 00:08:15.180
  • SO, ONCE I'M ALLOWED TO PUT
  • 00:08:15.180 --> 00:08:18.040
  • THAT MUCH FUDGE FACTOR IN, IT
  • 00:08:18.040 --> 00:08:19.250
  • CEASES TO BE SCIENCE.
  • 00:08:19.250 --> 00:08:22.130
  • I MEAN, EVEN THOUGH IT'S
  • 00:08:22.130 --> 00:08:23.070
  • PRESENTED AS BEING SCIENTIFIC.
  • 00:08:23.070 --> 00:08:24.110
  • AND THAT'S JUST THE TIP
  • 00:08:24.110 --> 00:08:25.220
  • OF THE ICEBERG.
  • 00:08:25.220 --> 00:08:26.110
  • YOU ALSO HAVE THINGS LIKE
  • 00:08:26.110 --> 00:08:28.140
  • INFLATION.
  • 00:08:28.140 --> 00:08:28.280
  • YOU HAVE ALL THIS...BASICALLY,
  • 00:08:28.280 --> 00:08:30.280
  • FUDGE FACTORS IS THE BEST WAY
  • 00:08:30.280 --> 00:08:32.090
  • TO DESCRIBE IT, THAT IT HAD TO
  • 00:08:32.090 --> 00:08:33.170
  • BE ADDED TO TRY TO PRETEND THAT
  • 00:08:33.170 --> 00:08:35.040
  • THE BIG BANG IS A SCIENTIFIC
  • 00:08:35.040 --> 00:08:37.020
  • THEORY OR A REAL THEORY.
  • 00:08:37.020 --> 00:08:38.190
  • - DAVID: ISN'T THAT
  • 00:08:38.190 --> 00:08:39.110
  • FASCINATING...
  • 00:08:39.110 --> 00:08:40.000
  • NOW, YOU MENTION INFLATION.
  • 00:08:40.000 --> 00:08:41.030
  • BREAK THAT DOWN FOR--
  • 00:08:41.030 --> 00:08:42.110
  • OKAY, SO, LET'S START WITH THE
  • 00:08:42.110 --> 00:08:43.250
  • VERY BEGINNING.
  • 00:08:43.250 --> 00:08:45.040
  • MANY PEOPLE WOULD SAY THAT
  • 00:08:45.040 --> 00:08:46.110
  • SPACE AND TIME BEGAN TO EXPAND,
  • 00:08:46.110 --> 00:08:48.100
  • THAT THE UNIVERSE WAS CREATED
  • 00:08:48.100 --> 00:08:51.000
  • AS IT WENT, 14 BILLION--
  • 00:08:51.000 --> 00:08:52.170
  • - DR. HOUTS: SO, THEN, SPACE
  • 00:08:52.170 --> 00:08:53.140
  • HAD TO EXPAND EXTREMELY
  • 00:08:53.140 --> 00:08:54.020
  • RAPIDLY.
  • 00:08:54.020 --> 00:08:54.210
  • AND THEN, THAT EXPANSION
  • 00:08:54.210 --> 00:08:56.020
  • HAD TO STOP.
  • 00:08:56.020 --> 00:08:56.280
  • WE HAVE NO IDEA WHY IT WOULD
  • 00:08:56.280 --> 00:08:57.180
  • HAVE DONE THAT.
  • 00:08:57.180 --> 00:08:58.020
  • YEAH, WE CAN JUST...
  • 00:08:58.020 --> 00:08:58.210
  • BUT TO MAKE THE THEORY WORK,
  • 00:08:58.210 --> 00:08:59.200
  • THAT'S WHAT HAS TO HAPPEN TO
  • 00:08:59.200 --> 00:09:01.200
  • TRY TO MATCH SOME OF THE OTHER
  • 00:09:01.200 --> 00:09:02.110
  • DATA THAT WE SEE TODAY.
  • 00:09:02.110 --> 00:09:03.150
  • AND SO...SO, THE THEORY IS KIND
  • 00:09:03.150 --> 00:09:05.240
  • OF, I GUESS YOU'D SAY, JUST
  • 00:09:05.240 --> 00:09:07.080
  • RIFE WITH THOSE KINDS
  • 00:09:07.080 --> 00:09:08.070
  • OF ASSUMPTIONS.
  • 00:09:10.070 --> 00:09:13.070
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE NOTICED
  • 00:09:13.070 --> 00:09:13.270
  • THIS.
  • 00:09:13.270 --> 00:09:14.060
  • I WANNA MAKE IT CLEAR, ALSO.
  • 00:09:14.060 --> 00:09:15.020
  • IT'S NOT THAT CHRISTIANS ARE
  • 00:09:15.020 --> 00:09:17.140
  • ALONE IN NOTICING THESE FACTS.
  • 00:09:17.140 --> 00:09:18.050
  • I'LL READ A QUOTE FROM A
  • 00:09:18.050 --> 00:09:19.180
  • FORMER NASA ADMINISTRATOR
  • 00:09:19.180 --> 00:09:20.260
  • MIKE GRIFFIN.
  • 00:09:20.260 --> 00:09:22.090
  • REALLY SMART GUY, GREAT GUY.
  • 00:09:22.090 --> 00:09:23.030
  • - DAVID: YEAH.
  • 00:09:23.030 --> 00:09:24.290
  • - DR. HOUTS: BUT, HE'S
  • 00:09:24.290 --> 00:09:25.170
  • JUSTIFYING,
  • 00:09:25.170 --> 00:09:26.020
  • WHY DO WE EXPLORE SPACE?
  • 00:09:26.020 --> 00:09:27.160
  • AND HE SAYS: "WHAT IS THE
  • 00:09:27.160 --> 00:09:29.100
  • VALUE OF DISCOVERING THAT
  • 00:09:29.100 --> 00:09:30.140
  • LITERALLY 95 PERCENT
  • 00:09:30.140 --> 00:09:31.270
  • OF THE UNIVERSE CONSISTS

  • IS THAT DARK ENERGY AND DARK
  • 00:09:40.180 --> 00:09:42.010

  • SAYING, "WE DON'T KNOW"?

  • - DR. HOUTS: YEAH.
  • 00:09:45.260 --> 00:09:46.210
  • OR THEY HAVE TO HAVE SPECIFIC
  • 00:09:46.210 --> 00:09:47.120
  • PROPERTIES.

  • - DAVID: OKAY...
  • 00:09:48.060 --> 00:09:49.080
  • - DR. HOUTS: BUT, AGAIN, THOSE

  • 00:09:56.120 --> 00:09:56.270
  • FASCINATING!
  • 00:09:56.270 --> 00:09:58.020
  • OKAY. SO, WE ASKED PEOPLE ON

  • THE STREET: WHEN THEY THINK OF
  • 00:10:00.040 --> 00:10:01.290
  • AN EXPLOSION, DO EXPLOSIONS
  • 00:10:01.290 --> 00:10:02.280
  • GENERALLY BRING MATTER TOGETHER
  • 00:10:02.280 --> 00:10:05.220
  • OR APART?
  • 00:10:05.220 --> 00:10:08.010
  • AND HERE'S WHAT WE GOT.
  • 00:10:08.010 --> 00:10:08.280
  • - DR. HOUTS: GREAT.
  • 00:10:08.280 --> 00:10:10.270
  • [INDISTINCT CHATTER]
  • 00:10:10.270 --> 00:10:11.260
  • - VOICE OF WOMAN: I WANNA
  • 00:10:11.260 --> 00:10:12.190
  • - INTERVIEWEE (LEFT): APART,
  • 00:10:14.260 --> 00:10:15.170
  • I WOULD THINK.
  • 00:10:15.170 --> 00:10:16.000
  • YES.
  • 00:10:16.000 --> 00:10:16.080
  • - INTERVIEWEE: TEARS IT APART.
  • 00:10:16.080 --> 00:10:17.000
  • - INTERVIEWEE: SO, UM, THE
  • 00:10:17.000 --> 00:10:17.230
  • FIRST THING YOU THINK OF IN AN
  • 00:10:17.230 --> 00:10:18.190
  • EXPLOSION IS JUST KIND OF A
  • 00:10:18.190 --> 00:10:20.120
  • VIOLENT SEPARATION OF THE...THE
  • 00:10:20.120 --> 00:10:22.010
  • CONTENTS OF THE ITEM THAT
  • 00:10:22.010 --> 00:10:23.170
  • ACTUALLY EXPLODED...UM, BUT
  • 00:10:23.170 --> 00:10:25.270
  • IT'S ACTUALLY SENDING ALL KINDS
  • 00:10:25.270 --> 00:10:27.090
  • OF MATTER, INTO THE AIR,
  • 00:10:27.090 --> 00:10:27.270
  • INTO THE SOIL.
  • 00:10:27.270 --> 00:10:29.250
  • SO, I WOULD...CONTEND THAT
  • 00:10:29.250 --> 00:10:31.090
  • IT'S BOTH.
  • 00:10:31.090 --> 00:10:32.200
  • - INTERVIEWEE: AN EXPLOSION
  • 00:10:32.200 --> 00:10:33.140
  • TEARS IT APART.
  • 00:10:33.140 --> 00:10:34.020
  • THEY SEPARATE.
  • 00:10:34.020 --> 00:10:35.130
  • - INTERVIEWEE: MATTER'S
  • 00:10:35.130 --> 00:10:36.080
  • JUST MATTER.
  • 00:10:36.080 --> 00:10:38.080
  • I DON'T-- I MEAN, IT'S MORE
  • 00:10:38.080 --> 00:10:39.120
  • JUST LIKE A DISPLACEMENT
  • 00:10:39.120 --> 00:10:40.000
  • OF MATTER.
  • 00:10:40.000 --> 00:10:40.110
  • - INTERVIEWEE: OH, BECAUSE
  • 00:10:40.110 --> 00:10:41.010
  • OF GRAVITY.
  • 00:10:41.010 --> 00:10:43.020
  • SO, I GUESS IT...TEARS IT
  • 00:10:43.020 --> 00:10:43.210
  • APART, BUT THEN IT BRINGS IT
  • 00:10:43.210 --> 00:10:44.110
  • BACK TOGETHER SLOWLY...
  • 00:10:44.110 --> 00:10:44.290
  • BUT SURELY?
  • 00:10:44.290 --> 00:10:47.060
  • - INTERVIEWEE: I THINK BOTH,
  • 00:10:47.060 --> 00:10:47.270
  • BECAUSE...UM...EXPLOSIONS --
  • 00:10:50.170 --> 00:10:53.170
  • YOU TEAR STUFF APART, AND--
  • 00:10:53.170 --> 00:10:55.250
  • BUT, THE PARTICLES COULD STILL
  • 00:10:55.250 --> 00:10:57.140
  • BE ATTACHED...

  • - INTERVIEWEE: TEAR
  • 00:10:58.280 --> 00:11:00.030
  • PARTICLES APART.
  • 00:11:00.030 --> 00:11:01.010
  • - INTERVIEWEE: I THINK IT
  • 00:11:01.010 --> 00:11:02.060
  • PHYSICALLY TEARS THINGS APART,
  • 00:11:02.060 --> 00:11:04.230
  • BECAUSE, OBVIOUSLY, THERE
  • 00:11:04.230 --> 00:11:06.090
  • IS AN EXPLOSION.
  • 00:11:06.090 --> 00:11:07.020
  • - INTERVIEWEE (LEFT): UM, I
  • 00:11:07.020 --> 00:11:07.290
  • THINK IT TEARS IT APART...
  • 00:11:07.290 --> 00:11:10.100
  • MAYBE, UM...BECAUSE IT'S A...
  • 00:11:10.100 --> 00:11:12.240
  • - INTERVIEWEE: WHY CAN'T
  • 00:11:12.240 --> 00:11:14.130
  • IT DO BOTH...?

  • 00:11:17.180 --> 00:11:18.060
  • DOES BOTH?
  • 00:11:18.060 --> 00:11:18.230
  • - INTERVIEWEE: TEAR THEM
  • 00:11:18.230 --> 00:11:19.120
  • APART.
  • 00:11:19.120 --> 00:11:20.030
  • - INTERVIEWEE (RIGHT): I THINK
  • 00:11:20.030 --> 00:11:20.290
  • IT-- IT TEARS IT APART.
  • 00:11:20.290 --> 00:11:22.210
  • YOU THINK OF IT "EX"-PLODING.
  • 00:11:22.210 --> 00:11:25.050
  • AN IMPLOSION WOULD COME IN,
  • 00:11:25.050 --> 00:11:26.020
  • SO...
  • 00:11:26.020 --> 00:11:27.130
  • - INTERVIEWEE (RIGHT): I THINK
  • 00:11:27.130 --> 00:11:28.050
  • THE OBVIOUS ANSWER IS TEAR
  • 00:11:28.050 --> 00:11:28.250
  • APART, BUT I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:11:28.250 --> 00:11:29.190
  • THERE'S PROBABLY A BETTER
  • 00:11:29.190 --> 00:11:30.080
  • ANSWER.
  • 00:11:30.080 --> 00:11:31.230
  • THAT'S WHAT I WOULD THINK.
  • 00:11:31.230 --> 00:11:32.120
  • - INTERVIEWEE (LEFT): "EX-"
  • 00:11:32.120 --> 00:11:33.160
  • INSTEAD OF "IM-" -- "IMPLODE"
  • 00:11:33.160 --> 00:11:34.150
  • VERSUS "EXPLODE."
  • 00:11:34.150 --> 00:11:35.050
  • - INTERVIEWEE (RIGHT): OKAY.
  • 00:11:35.050 --> 00:11:36.020
  • - INTERVIEWEE (LEFT):
  • 00:11:36.020 --> 00:11:38.180
  • - DAVID: NOW, THOSE ARE GOOD
  • 00:11:40.260 --> 00:11:41.170
  • OBSERVATIONS.
  • 00:11:41.170 --> 00:11:42.010
  • THE BIG BANG, MANY SCIENTISTS
  • 00:11:42.010 --> 00:11:42.220
  • WOULD CONTEND, WAS NOT AN
  • 00:11:42.220 --> 00:11:43.150
  • EXPLOSION WITHIN SPACE, BUT
  • 00:11:43.150 --> 00:11:45.270
  • ACTUALLY A RAPID EXPANSION OF
  • 00:11:45.270 --> 00:11:47.170
  • SPACE-TIME ITSELF.
  • 00:11:49.090 --> 00:11:52.090
  • THE PROBLEM STILL APPLIES --
  • 00:11:52.090 --> 00:11:52.290
  • DOESN'T IT? --
  • 00:11:52.290 --> 00:11:53.150
  • THAT THE FARTHER EACH
  • 00:11:53.150 --> 00:11:56.060
  • PARTICLE OF MATTER GETS
  • 00:11:56.060 --> 00:11:58.000
  • FROM EACH OTHER, THE LESS
  • 00:11:58.000 --> 00:11:59.080
  • LIKELY IT IS TO EVER BE PULLED
  • 00:11:59.080 --> 00:12:00.270
  • IN BY MUTUAL GRAVITY AND CREATE

  • THE FIRST STAR, THE FIRST

  • PLANET, THE FIRST GALAXY OR
  • 00:12:04.130 --> 00:12:05.170
  • ANYTHING, RIGHT?

  • - DR. HOUTS: RIGHT.
  • 00:12:06.110 --> 00:12:07.070
  • YEAH, AND SO, FOR EXAMPLE,
  • 00:12:07.070 --> 00:12:08.060
  • THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS THAT
  • 00:12:08.060 --> 00:12:08.270
  • DARK MATTER IS USED FOR.
  • 00:12:08.270 --> 00:12:09.240
  • REMEMBER, WE MENTIONED THAT
  • 00:12:09.240 --> 00:12:11.120
  • 23 PERCENT OF THE UNIVERSE HAS
  • 00:12:11.120 --> 00:12:12.030
  • TO BE DARK MATTER.
  • 00:12:12.030 --> 00:12:12.230
  • AND THEY'LL ACTUALLY
  • 00:12:12.230 --> 00:12:13.230
  • SAY THINGS LIKE LITTLE
  • 00:12:13.230 --> 00:12:15.020
  • PIECES OF DARK MATTER STARTED
  • 00:12:15.020 --> 00:12:16.150
  • TO CLUMP TOGETHER.
  • 00:12:16.150 --> 00:12:17.060

  • 00:12:18.130 --> 00:12:19.010
  • JUST MAGIC.

  • YOU KNOW, NOT SURE HOW.
  • 00:12:19.200 --> 00:12:21.050
  • AND THEN, THAT DARK MATTER
  • 00:12:21.050 --> 00:12:22.000
  • WOULD ACTUALLY PULL IN THE
  • 00:12:22.000 --> 00:12:22.280
  • GASES THAT COULD MAKE A STAR.

  • - DR. HOUTS: SO, NOW, I HAVE
  • 00:12:31.130 --> 00:12:32.090
  • ENOUGH GRAVITY TO ACTUALLY PULL
  • 00:12:32.090 --> 00:12:33.140
  • THE GAS...TOGETHER.
  • 00:12:33.140 --> 00:12:34.000
  • 'CAUSE, AS YOU SAID, AS THE GAS
  • 00:12:34.000 --> 00:12:35.060
  • CONDENSED, IT WOULD TEND TO
  • 00:12:35.060 --> 00:12:36.100
  • HEAT UP, WHICH WOULD...
  • 00:12:36.100 --> 00:12:37.090

  • - DR. HOUTS: ...BASICALLY PUSH
  • 00:12:38.020 --> 00:12:38.240
  • IT APART.
  • 00:12:38.240 --> 00:12:39.120
  • - DAVID: RIGHT.
  • 00:12:39.120 --> 00:12:39.260
  • - DR. HOUTS: AND SO, WE HAVE
  • 00:12:39.260 --> 00:12:40.170
  • DARK MATTER CAUSING THAT.
  • 00:12:40.170 --> 00:12:41.160
  • SO, YOU'RE RIGHT.
  • 00:12:41.160 --> 00:12:43.020

  • SCIENCE FUN IS EVERYTHING'S

  • 00:12:53.130 --> 00:12:54.140
  • EVERYBODY'S EXCITED ABOUT THE
  • 00:12:54.140 --> 00:12:55.050
  • FACT WE REALLY DON'T KNOW HOW

  • PLANETS FORM, WE DON'T KNOW
  • 00:12:56.050 --> 00:12:57.030
  • WHY THEY FORM.
  • 00:12:57.030 --> 00:12:57.230
  • ALL OF OUR-- WHEN WE FIND THESE
  • 00:12:57.230 --> 00:12:59.020
  • OTHER SOLAR SYSTEM WITH PLANETS
  • 00:12:59.020 --> 00:13:00.100
  • -- AGAIN, IT'S ALMOST-- WITH

  • EVERY ARTICLE, IT'S LIKE: WELL,
  • 00:13:03.050 --> 00:13:04.220
  • BASED ON THIS, WE'RE GONNA NEED
  • 00:13:04.220 --> 00:13:05.230
  • TO REWRITE THE TEXTBOOK.
  • 00:13:05.230 --> 00:13:06.140
  • SO, THIS GOES AGAINST THIS
  • 00:13:06.140 --> 00:13:07.290
  • CURRENT THEORY.
  • 00:13:07.290 --> 00:13:08.190
  • AND THAT'S FANTASTIC.
  • 00:13:08.190 --> 00:13:10.030
  • THAT'S WHAT MAKES SCIENCE
  • 00:13:10.030 --> 00:13:10.220
  • BUT, IT COMES BACK TO WHEN
  • 00:13:13.270 --> 00:13:14.160
  • THAT, YOU KNOW, LIMITED
  • 00:13:14.160 --> 00:13:15.040
  • SCIENCE, OR, TO SOME EXTENT--
  • 00:13:15.040 --> 00:13:16.060
  • AT SOME POINT, IT ACTUALLY DOES
  • 00:13:16.060 --> 00:13:18.040
  • BECOME FAKE SCIENCE WHEN THAT'S
  • 00:13:18.040 --> 00:13:19.130

  • 00:13:19.130 --> 00:13:20.200
  • FAITH, TO CAUSE THEM TO SAY:
  • 00:13:20.200 --> 00:13:21.270
  • WELL, MAYBE THE BIBLE CAN'T
  • 00:13:21.270 --> 00:13:22.230
  • MAYBE THE BIBLE'S BEEN

  • MISTRANSLATED.
  • 00:13:26.150 --> 00:13:26.280
  • MAYBE THIS ABOUT THE BIBLE.
  • 00:13:26.280 --> 00:13:27.260
  • THAT'S WHEN, TO ME,
  • 00:13:27.260 --> 00:13:29.060
  • IT'S A CONCERN.
  • 00:13:29.060 --> 00:13:31.000
  • THE FACT THAT WE REALLY DON'T
  • 00:13:31.000 --> 00:13:31.210
  • KNOW MUCH ABOUT THE UNIVERSE,
  • 00:13:31.210 --> 00:13:32.120
  • TO ME, THAT'S FASCINATING.
  • 00:13:32.120 --> 00:13:33.010
  • THAT'S JUST LIKE
  • 00:13:33.010 --> 00:13:33.230
  • MIKE GRIFFIN SAID --
  • 00:13:33.230 --> 00:13:34.160
  • THAT'S WHY WE SHOULD EXPLORE.
  • 00:13:34.160 --> 00:13:35.220
  • THAT'S WHAT'S SO GOOD ABOUT THE
  • 00:13:35.220 --> 00:13:36.280
  • SPACE PROGRAM.
  • 00:13:36.280 --> 00:13:37.110
  • - DAVID: ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:13:37.110 --> 00:13:37.280
  • I MEAN-- AND, YOU KNOW, THEY
  • 00:13:37.280 --> 00:13:39.020
  • CALL SPACE "THE FINAL
  • 00:13:39.020 --> 00:13:40.090
  • FRONTIER," RIGHT?
  • 00:13:40.090 --> 00:13:40.240
  • - DR. HOUTS: OH, YEAH.
  • 00:13:40.240 --> 00:13:41.250
  • - DAVID: BUT I LOVE THIS QUOTE
  • 00:13:41.250 --> 00:13:42.170
  • OF YOURS.
  • 00:13:42.170 --> 00:13:42.280
  • "OUR CURRENT KNOWLEDGE OF THE
  • 00:13:42.280 --> 00:13:43.260
  • UNIVERSE IS EXTREMELY
  • 00:13:43.260 --> 00:13:44.130
  • LIMITED..."
  • 00:13:44.130 --> 00:13:45.160
  • - DR. HOUTS: OH, YEAH.
  • 00:13:45.160 --> 00:13:46.130

  • RETHINK -- "...EVERYTHING,"
  • 00:13:51.130 --> 00:13:52.250
  • RIGHT?

  • - DR. HOUTS: YES.
  • 00:13:53.110 --> 00:13:54.040
  • OH, YEAH.
  • 00:13:54.040 --> 00:13:54.200
  • - DAVID: SO, THE MORE AND MORE
  • 00:13:54.200 --> 00:13:56.110
  • WE LEARN, IT'S NOT BRINGING US
  • 00:13:56.110 --> 00:13:58.050
  • TO A CLOSER REALIZATION THAT:
  • 00:13:58.050 --> 00:13:59.170
  • THE BIG BANG ACTUALLY TOOK
  • 00:13:59.170 --> 00:14:01.160
  • PLACE; HERE'S THE SCIENTIFIC
  • 00:14:01.160 --> 00:14:02.170
  • PROOF.
  • 00:14:02.170 --> 00:14:03.230
  • WHAT IT ACTUALLY IS SHOWING US
  • 00:14:03.230 --> 00:14:05.090
  • IS THAT WE REALLY DON'T
  • 00:14:05.090 --> 00:14:07.100
  • UNDERSTAND HOW SOME OF THESE
  • 00:14:07.100 --> 00:14:08.150
  • OTHER THINGS WORK.
  • 00:14:08.150 --> 00:14:09.240
  • - DR. HOUTS: RIGHT.
  • 00:14:09.240 --> 00:14:11.120
  • - DAVID: NOW, MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:14:11.120 --> 00:14:12.120
  • WOULD SAY: "WELL, THEN, YOU
  • 00:14:12.120 --> 00:14:13.020
  • INSERT A GOD OF THE GAPS."
  • 00:14:13.020 --> 00:14:14.110
  • HAVE YOU HEARD THAT
  • 00:14:14.110 --> 00:14:15.010
  • EXPRESSION BEFORE?
  • 00:14:15.010 --> 00:14:16.120
  • - DR. HOUTS: OH, YEAH.
  • 00:14:16.120 --> 00:14:17.000
  • YEAH, YOU HEAR IT A LOT.
  • 00:14:17.000 --> 00:14:17.180
  • - DAVID: "AND SO, YOU INSERT A
  • 00:14:17.180 --> 00:14:18.100
  • GOD OF THE GAPS.
  • 00:14:18.100 --> 00:14:18.280
  • YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND IT, SO YOU
  • 00:14:18.280 --> 00:14:19.200
  • SAY GOD DID IT."
  • 00:14:19.200 --> 00:14:22.150
  • WHAT ARE SECULAR SCIENTISTS,
  • 00:14:22.150 --> 00:14:23.050
  • ATHEISTIC SCIENTISTS DOING
  • 00:14:23.050 --> 00:14:25.240
  • WHICH IS VERY SIMILAR?
  • 00:14:25.240 --> 00:14:26.230
  • - DR. HOUTS: OH, IT'S EXACTLY
  • 00:14:26.230 --> 00:14:27.140
  • THE SAME, BUT THEY JUST TRY TO
  • 00:14:27.140 --> 00:14:28.140
  • MAKE IT SOUND MORE TECHNICAL.
  • 00:14:28.140 --> 00:14:29.050
  • - DAVID: OKAY.
  • 00:14:29.050 --> 00:14:30.250
  • - DR. HOUTS: I DON'T KNOW HOW
  • 00:14:30.250 --> 00:14:31.160
  • ELSE TO PHRASE IT.
  • 00:14:31.160 --> 00:14:32.080
  • I MEAN, THERE'S NO DIFFERENCE
  • 00:14:32.080 --> 00:14:33.100
  • BETWEEN A MULTIVERSE GENERATOR,
  • 00:14:33.100 --> 00:14:34.260
  • AND, YOU KNOW, WHATEVER THEY
  • 00:14:34.260 --> 00:14:36.080
  • WANNA CALL THE GOD OF THE GAPS.
  • 00:14:36.080 --> 00:14:37.190
  • EVERYTHING, YOU KNOW, SOMEHOW,
  • 00:14:37.190 --> 00:14:38.140
  • POPPED OUT OF A SINGULARITY...
  • 00:14:39.020 --> 00:14:42.020
  • FOR THAT MATTER, AT OUR
  • 00:14:42.020 --> 00:14:42.240
  • CURRENT STATE OF UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:14:42.240 --> 00:14:43.250
  • DARK MATTER, DARK ENERGY, IT IS
  • 00:14:43.250 --> 00:14:44.250
  • INTERESTING.
  • 00:14:44.250 --> 00:14:46.200
  • THERE'S BIBLICALLY CONSISTENT
  • 00:14:46.200 --> 00:14:47.190
  • THEORIES THAT COMPLETELY
  • 00:14:47.190 --> 00:14:50.000
  • ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR
  • 00:14:50.000 --> 00:14:51.270
  • DARK ENERGY.
  • 00:14:51.270 --> 00:14:52.120
  • - DR. HOUTS: AND THEY ALSO
  • 00:14:55.250 --> 00:14:56.150
  • EXPLAIN HOW THE UNIVERSE COULD
  • 00:14:56.150 --> 00:14:57.060
  • APPEAR THE WAY IT DOES FROM AN
  • 00:14:57.060 --> 00:14:57.270
  • EARTH THAT'S A FEW THOUSAND
  • 00:14:57.270 --> 00:14:58.170
  • YEARS OLD.
  • 00:14:58.170 --> 00:14:58.280
  • AND SO, TO ME, THAT WOULD BE A
  • 00:14:58.280 --> 00:14:59.200
  • BETTER THEORY TO PURSUE, JUST
  • 00:14:59.200 --> 00:15:01.220
  • PURELY SCIENTIFICALLY.
  • 00:15:01.220 --> 00:15:03.270
  • BECAUSE, I DON'T NEED TO MAKE
  • 00:15:03.270 --> 00:15:06.000
  • UP DARK ENERGY.
  • 00:15:06.000 --> 00:15:07.090
  • I DON'T NEED TO MAKE UP THE 73
  • 00:15:07.090 --> 00:15:08.090
  • PERCENT THAT I REALLY HAVE
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:10.030
  • ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHAT IT
  • 00:15:10.030 --> 00:15:11.070
  • COULD POSSIBLY BE.
  • 00:15:11.070 --> 00:15:12.050
  • AND THAT'S OUR KNOWLEDGE OF
  • 00:15:12.050 --> 00:15:13.130
  • QUOTE, UNQUOTE "DARK ENERGY,"
  • 00:15:13.130 --> 00:15:14.190
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:15:14.190 --> 00:15:16.020
  • BUT IT REQUIRES THE EARTH TO BE
  • 00:15:16.020 --> 00:15:17.110
  • IN A SPECIAL LOCATION.
  • 00:15:17.110 --> 00:15:19.000
  • - DAVID: OKAY.
  • 00:15:19.000 --> 00:15:19.240
  • - DR. HOUTS: AND SO, WHAT'S SO
  • 00:15:19.240 --> 00:15:20.200
  • FUNNY IS THE RELIGIOUS
  • 00:15:20.200 --> 00:15:22.180
  • ASSUMPTIONS-- IT'S CALLED THE
  • 00:15:22.180 --> 00:15:24.010
  • COPERNICAN PRINCIPLE.
  • 00:15:24.010 --> 00:15:24.290
  • BUT THAT RELIGIOUS ASSUMPTION --
  • 00:15:24.290 --> 00:15:26.030
  • SO NOW, WE'RE PUTTIN'
  • 00:15:26.030 --> 00:15:27.020
  • RELIGION ON SCIENCE,
  • 00:15:27.020 --> 00:15:28.020
  • SO IT'S PURELY RELIGIOUS --
  • 00:15:28.020 --> 00:15:28.280
  • THEY'RE SAYING WE CAN'T BE
  • 00:15:28.280 --> 00:15:29.170
  • IN A SPECIAL PLACE.
  • 00:15:29.170 --> 00:15:30.110
  • WELL, THAT'S ATHEISM.
  • 00:15:30.110 --> 00:15:32.010
  • THAT'S JUST THEIR RELIGIOUS
  • 00:15:32.010 --> 00:15:32.260
  • ASSUMPTION.
  • 00:15:32.260 --> 00:15:34.000
  • AND ONCE YOU SAY WE CAN'T BE IN
  • 00:15:34.000 --> 00:15:35.060
  • A SPECIAL PLACE WHEN THERE'S A
  • 00:15:35.060 --> 00:15:37.170
  • WHOLE LOT OF EVIDENCE THAT WE
  • 00:15:37.170 --> 00:15:38.080
  • ARE IN A SPECIAL PLACE, UH,
  • 00:15:38.080 --> 00:15:39.270
  • THEN YOU DRIVE TO THESE REALLY
  • 00:15:39.270 --> 00:15:41.060
  • BIZARRE THEORIES THAT REALLY
  • 00:15:41.060 --> 00:15:42.190
  • CEASE TO BE SCIENTIFIC.
  • 00:15:42.190 --> 00:15:44.060
  • BUT, AGAIN, IT'S WHEN THEY
  • 00:15:44.060 --> 00:15:45.160
  • ACCUSE CHRISTIANS OF MIXING
  • 00:15:45.160 --> 00:15:46.280
  • IN RELIGION...
  • 00:15:46.280 --> 00:15:48.210
  • - DAVID: RELIGION,
  • 00:15:48.210 --> 00:15:50.280
  • - DR. HOUTS: THEIR THEORY
  • 00:15:50.280 --> 00:15:51.170
  • HAPPENS TO BE ACCEPTED, BUT
  • 00:15:51.170 --> 00:15:52.130
  • THEY'RE DOING EXACTLY THE SAME
  • 00:15:52.130 --> 00:15:53.040
  • THING.
  • 00:15:53.040 --> 00:15:53.230
  • INSTEAD OF JUST SAYING, "OKAY,
  • 00:15:53.230 --> 00:15:55.000
  • THE OBSERVATIONS WOULD SAY
  • 00:15:55.000 --> 00:15:56.060
  • WE'RE IN A SPECIAL LOCATION,
  • 00:15:56.060 --> 00:15:57.150
  • AND, WOW -- IT TELLS US THIS,
  • 00:15:57.160 --> 00:16:00.180
  • THIS, THIS, AND THIS,"
  • 00:16:00.180 --> 00:16:02.250
  • THEY'LL SAY, "WELL, WE CAN'T BE
  • 00:16:02.250 --> 00:16:03.170
  • IN A SPECIAL LOCATION."
  • 00:16:03.170 --> 00:16:04.260
  • AND THEN, EVERYBODY SAYS,
  • 00:16:04.260 --> 00:16:05.170
  • "OKAY, WELL, I GUESS 96 PERCENT
  • 00:16:05.170 --> 00:16:07.040
  • OF THE UNIVERSE MUST BE
  • 00:16:07.040 --> 00:16:08.020
  • MADE UP."
  • 00:16:08.020 --> 00:16:08.180
  • - DAVID: OH...
  • 00:16:08.180 --> 00:16:09.020
  • - DR. HOUTS: YOU KNOW --
  • 00:16:09.020 --> 00:16:09.210
  • "IT'S GOTTA BE 73 PERCENT
  • 00:16:09.210 --> 00:16:10.100
  • DARK ENERGY."
  • 00:16:10.100 --> 00:16:10.280
  • YOU KNOW, SO, THEY ACCEPT THAT
  • 00:16:10.280 --> 00:16:12.090
  • FAULTY...AGAIN, PURELY
  • 00:16:12.090 --> 00:16:13.170
  • RELIGIOUS ASSUMPTION.
  • 00:16:13.170 --> 00:16:14.260
  • THEN, YOU'RE-- IT DRIVES YOU
  • 00:16:14.260 --> 00:16:17.050
  • AWAY FROM JUST BEING ABLE TO
  • 00:16:17.050 --> 00:16:18.140
  • LOOK AT WHAT OUR OBSERVATIONS
  • 00:16:18.140 --> 00:16:19.170
  • TELL US, WHAT SCIENCE WILL
  • 00:16:19.170 --> 00:16:20.110
  • REALLY SAY.
  • 00:16:20.110 --> 00:16:22.210
  • - DAVID: SO, THE COPERNICAN
  • 00:16:22.210 --> 00:16:23.190
  • PRINCIPLE HAS SORT OF BEEN
  • 00:16:23.190 --> 00:16:24.130
  • CORRUPTED INTO THE MEDIOCRITY
  • 00:16:24.130 --> 00:16:25.130
  • PRINCIPLE, WHICH BASICALLY
  • 00:16:25.130 --> 00:16:26.130
  • STATES THERE IS NO FAVORED
  • 00:16:26.130 --> 00:16:27.140
  • POSITION...
  • 00:16:27.190 --> 00:16:30.190
  • - DR. HOUTS: RIGHT.
  • 00:16:30.190 --> 00:16:31.050
  • - DAVID: AND IT'S BASED OFF OF
  • 00:16:31.050 --> 00:16:31.270
  • THE ASSUMPTION THAT THE
  • 00:16:31.270 --> 00:16:32.150
  • UNIVERSE IS ACCIDENTAL, THAT
  • 00:16:32.150 --> 00:16:34.180
  • THERE WAS NO DESIGNER.
  • 00:16:34.180 --> 00:16:36.000
  • - DR. HOUTS: RIGHT. YEAH.
  • 00:16:36.000 --> 00:16:37.030
  • - DAVID: IF THERE WAS A
  • 00:16:37.030 --> 00:16:38.050
  • DESIGNER AND HAVE HIS HISTORY
  • 00:16:38.050 --> 00:16:40.030
  • BOOK, WE HAVE HIS INSTRUCTIONS
  • 00:16:40.030 --> 00:16:41.190
  • ON HOW HE CREATED
  • 00:16:41.190 --> 00:16:44.060
  • THE UNIVERSE...
  • 00:16:44.060 --> 00:16:44.250
  • IT SAYS: "IN THE BEGINNING, GOD
  • 00:16:44.250 --> 00:16:45.240
  • CREATED THE HEAVENS AND
  • 00:16:45.240 --> 00:16:46.210
  • THE EARTH.
  • 00:16:46.210 --> 00:16:47.250
  • AND THE EARTH WAS WITHOUT FORM,
  • 00:16:47.250 --> 00:16:48.230
  • AND VOID..."
  • 00:16:48.230 --> 00:16:49.160
  • SO, THE EARTH IS CENTRAL TO THE
  • 00:16:49.160 --> 00:16:51.270
  • CREATION ACCOUNT IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:16:51.270 --> 00:16:54.170
  • - DR. HOUTS: YEP...YEP.
  • 00:16:54.170 --> 00:16:56.040
  • - DAVID: NOW, DOES THIS MEAN
  • 00:16:56.040 --> 00:16:57.070
  • THAT THE EARTH IS THE EXACT
  • 00:16:57.070 --> 00:16:58.070
  • CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE?
  • 00:16:58.070 --> 00:16:59.050
  • WE'RE NOT SAYING THAT.
  • 00:16:59.050 --> 00:17:00.100
  • - DR. HOUTS: RIGHT.
  • 00:17:00.100 --> 00:17:01.120
  • - DAVID: BUT WE ARE SAYING
  • 00:17:01.120 --> 00:17:02.120
  • THAT IT HOLDS A SPECIAL PLACE
  • 00:17:02.120 --> 00:17:03.190
  • IN GOD'S EYE.
  • 00:17:03.190 --> 00:17:05.070
  • - DR. HOUTS: YES.
  • 00:17:05.070 --> 00:17:05.290
  • YEAH, EXACTLY.
  • 00:17:05.290 --> 00:17:06.130
  • AND SO, ONCE WE'RE-- AND THAT'S
  • 00:17:06.130 --> 00:17:08.240
  • WHY, YOU KNOW, ATHEISTS, AGAIN,
  • 00:17:08.240 --> 00:17:10.060
  • WILL SAY, "THAT'S NOT ALLOWED."
  • 00:17:10.060 --> 00:17:12.020
  • - DAVID: RIGHT.
  • 00:17:12.020 --> 00:17:12.250
  • - DR. HOUTS: 'CAUSE IF WE'RE
  • 00:17:12.250 --> 00:17:13.290
  • IN A SPECIAL LOCATION, THEN,
  • 00:17:13.290 --> 00:17:14.290
  • THAT WOULD IMPLY THAT THERE WAS
  • 00:17:14.290 --> 00:17:16.120
  • A CREATOR, THAT WE ARE
  • 00:17:16.120 --> 00:17:17.000
  • SOMEPLACE...YOU KNOW, IS
  • 00:17:17.000 --> 00:17:18.140
  • SOMETHING SPECIAL.
  • 00:17:18.140 --> 00:17:19.030
  • AND SO, WHAT'S INTERESTING IS
  • 00:17:19.030 --> 00:17:20.180
  • IF WE DID HAPPEN TO BE NEAR
  • 00:17:20.180 --> 00:17:23.040
  • THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE,
  • 00:17:23.040 --> 00:17:23.250
  • 'CAUSE GOD DID PUT
  • 00:17:23.250 --> 00:17:24.100
  • US SOMEPLACE,
  • 00:17:24.100 --> 00:17:24.230
  • IF WE DID HAPPEN TO BE THERE,
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:25.190
  • THEN, IF YOU LOOK INTO THE
  • 00:17:25.190 --> 00:17:27.010
  • ACCOUNTS OF WHAT WOULD
  • 00:17:27.010 --> 00:17:28.020
  • HAPPEN WITH GRAVITATIONAL
  • 00:17:28.020 --> 00:17:28.230
  • TIME DILATION,
  • 00:17:28.230 --> 00:17:30.120
  • IT ACTUALLY GIVES A VERY--
  • 00:17:30.120 --> 00:17:31.070
  • CONSISTENT WITH GENESIS,
  • 00:17:31.070 --> 00:17:33.110
  • IT GIVES A VERY GOOD
  • 00:17:33.110 --> 00:17:35.030
  • EXPLANATION OF HOW THE
  • 00:17:35.030 --> 00:17:36.100
  • UNIVERSE APPEARS THE WAY
  • 00:17:36.100 --> 00:17:37.150
  • IT DOES FROM AN EARTH THAT'S
  • 00:17:37.150 --> 00:17:39.040
  • A FEW THOUSAND YEARS OLD.
  • 00:17:39.040 --> 00:17:39.230
  • AND, OF COURSE, DR. RUSS
  • 00:17:39.230 --> 00:17:40.270
  • HUMPHREYS HAS DONE A
  • 00:17:40.270 --> 00:17:41.230
  • TREMENDOUS JOB EXPLAINING
  • 00:17:41.230 --> 00:17:42.260
  • THAT IDEA.
  • 00:17:42.260 --> 00:17:43.120
  • BUT IT MAKES SENSE.
  • 00:17:43.120 --> 00:17:44.220
  • YOU KNOW, WE ARE ALLOWED TO BE
  • 00:17:44.220 --> 00:17:45.290
  • IN A SPECIAL LOCATION.
  • 00:17:45.290 --> 00:17:46.160
  • IT'S VERY BIBLICALLY
  • 00:17:46.160 --> 00:17:47.080
  • CONSISTENT.
  • 00:17:47.080 --> 00:17:48.150
  • - DAVID: ALL RIGHT, NOW, YOU
  • 00:17:48.150 --> 00:17:49.170
  • THREW OUT A TERM, HERE, THAT,
  • 00:17:49.170 --> 00:17:50.260
  • YES, WE'RE FAMILIAR WITH.
  • 00:17:50.260 --> 00:17:52.220
  • BUT I WANT YOU TO BREAK IT
  • 00:17:52.220 --> 00:17:54.240
  • DOWN BECAUSE SOME OF THESE
  • 00:17:54.240 --> 00:17:56.270
  • THINGS ARE HARD TO GRASP,
  • 00:17:56.270 --> 00:17:57.210
  • ALL RIGHT?
  • 00:17:57.210 --> 00:17:58.150
  • - DR. HOUTS: OKAY.
  • 00:17:58.150 --> 00:17:59.120
  • - DAVID: SO, DR. RUSSELL
  • 00:17:59.120 --> 00:18:00.030
  • HUMPHREYS LOOKED INTO
  • 00:18:00.030 --> 00:18:00.270
  • GRAVITATIONAL TIME DILATION.
  • 00:18:00.270 --> 00:18:01.290
  • GRAVITATIONAL TIME DILATION IS
  • 00:18:01.290 --> 00:18:03.200
  • ACTUALLY BASED ON EINSTEIN'S
  • 00:18:03.200 --> 00:18:05.150
  • THEORIES OF RELATIVITY--
  • 00:18:05.150 --> 00:18:06.110
  • - DR. HOUTS: YEAH, IT'S BASED
  • 00:18:06.110 --> 00:18:07.020
  • ON EINSTEIN'S THEORY
  • 00:18:07.020 --> 00:18:07.180
  • OF RELATIVITY.
  • 00:18:07.180 --> 00:18:08.040
  • WE'VE HAD EXPERIMENTAL...
  • 00:18:08.040 --> 00:18:09.010
  • CONFIRMATION OF THOSE THEORIES.
  • 00:18:09.010 --> 00:18:10.140
  • WE HAVEN'T SEEN IT BE
  • 00:18:10.140 --> 00:18:11.140
  • VIOLATED YET.
  • 00:18:11.140 --> 00:18:12.270
  • - DAVID: OKAY...
  • 00:18:12.270 --> 00:18:14.020
  • - DR. HOUTS: YOU ALWAYS WANNA
  • 00:18:14.020 --> 00:18:14.230
  • KEEP TESTIN' THEORIES AND
  • 00:18:14.230 --> 00:18:15.120
  • TESTIN' THEORIES.
  • 00:18:15.120 --> 00:18:15.270
  • BUT, AS FAR AS--
  • 00:18:15.270 --> 00:18:16.110
  • - DAVID: BUT THAT'S GOOD
  • 00:18:16.110 --> 00:18:17.000
  • SCIENCE SO FAR.
  • 00:18:17.000 --> 00:18:17.140
  • - DR. HOUTS: YEAH. UH-HUH.
  • 00:18:17.140 --> 00:18:18.040
  • - DAVID: AND...BASICALLY,
  • 00:18:18.040 --> 00:18:20.040
  • THIS...PREDICTS THAT CLOCKS RUN
  • 00:18:20.110 --> 00:18:23.110
  • AT SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT RATES,
  • 00:18:23.110 --> 00:18:25.000
  • DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU ARE
  • 00:18:25.000 --> 00:18:26.090
  • THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE--
  • 00:18:26.090 --> 00:18:27.210
  • - DR. HOUTS: RIGHT.
  • 00:18:27.210 --> 00:18:28.180
  • - DAVID: --OR HOW FAR YOU ARE
  • 00:18:28.180 --> 00:18:29.090
  • DOWN IN A GRAVITATIONAL WELL.
  • 00:18:29.090 --> 00:18:30.040
  • IT'S EXPERIMENTALLY OBSERVED,
  • 00:18:30.040 --> 00:18:31.050
  • ISN'T IT?
  • 00:18:31.050 --> 00:18:32.110
  • - DR. HOUTS: RIGHT.
  • 00:18:32.110 --> 00:18:32.270
  • - DAVID: BECAUSE WE CAN
  • 00:18:32.270 --> 00:18:33.240
  • MEASURE ATOMIC CLOCKS AT SEA
  • 00:18:33.240 --> 00:18:34.210
  • LEVEL, UH, YOU KNOW, ON THE
  • 00:18:34.210 --> 00:18:36.100
  • TOPS OF MOUNTAINS IN DENVER, OR
  • 00:18:36.100 --> 00:18:37.200
  • EVEN ON THE INTERNATIONAL
  • 00:18:37.200 --> 00:18:39.050
  • SPACE STATION.
  • 00:18:39.050 --> 00:18:40.160
  • - DR. HOUTS: YEP.
  • 00:18:40.160 --> 00:18:41.040
  • - DAVID: AND THEY RUN AT
  • 00:18:41.040 --> 00:18:41.230
  • SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT RATES.
  • 00:18:41.230 --> 00:18:43.040
  • - DR. HOUTS: YES. EXACTLY.
  • 00:18:43.040 --> 00:18:43.240
  • - DAVID: SO, EXPLAIN HOW THIS
  • 00:18:43.240 --> 00:18:44.250
  • MIGHT EVEN ANSWER THE QUESTION,
  • 00:18:44.250 --> 00:18:47.190
  • OR, PARTIALLY, AT LEAST, ANSWER
  • 00:18:47.190 --> 00:18:49.130
  • THE QUESTION OF HOW WE CAN SEE
  • 00:18:49.130 --> 00:18:51.210
  • DISTANT STARLIGHT FROM GALAXIES
  • 00:18:51.210 --> 00:18:54.030
  • BILLIONS UPON BILLIONS OF LIGHT
  • 00:18:54.030 --> 00:18:55.230
  • YEARS AWAY IF THE UNIVERSE IS
  • 00:18:55.230 --> 00:18:58.070
  • ONLY 6.000 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:18:59.040 --> 00:19:02.060
  • AND THAT'S STILL A LONG TIME --
  • 00:19:02.060 --> 00:19:02.280
  • THOUSANDS OF YEARS.
  • 00:19:02.280 --> 00:19:03.260
  • - DR. HOUTS: YEAH. YEP.
  • 00:19:03.260 --> 00:19:04.230
  • - DAVID: BUT IT'S
  • 00:19:04.230 --> 00:19:05.080
  • NOT BILLIONS.
  • 00:19:05.080 --> 00:19:05.290
  • - DR. HOUTS: RIGHT.
  • 00:19:05.290 --> 00:19:07.120
  • SO, YOU KNOW, GOD TALKED TO
  • 00:19:07.120 --> 00:19:08.020
  • PEOPLE ON EARTH.
  • 00:19:08.020 --> 00:19:09.100
  • 'CAUSE PEOPLE IMMEDIATELY SAY,
  • 00:19:09.100 --> 00:19:10.010
  • "WELL, WHICH TIMEFRAME
  • 00:19:10.010 --> 00:19:10.180
  • ARE YOU USING?"
  • 00:19:10.180 --> 00:19:11.070
  • - DAVID: OKAY.
  • 00:19:11.070 --> 00:19:11.210
  • - DR. HOUTS: THE BIBLE'S
  • 00:19:11.210 --> 00:19:12.130
  • WRITTEN TO PEOPLE ON EARTH.
  • 00:19:12.130 --> 00:19:13.200
  • AND SO, IF WE'RE VERY DEEP IN A
  • 00:19:13.200 --> 00:19:15.100
  • GRAVITY WELL -- BASICALLY BELOW
  • 00:19:15.100 --> 00:19:17.090
  • AN EVENT HORIZON -- LITERALLY,
  • 00:19:17.090 --> 00:19:19.140
  • TIME WILL NOT PASS AT ALL
  • 00:19:19.140 --> 00:19:21.090
  • COMPARED TO WHAT'S GOING ON
  • 00:19:21.090 --> 00:19:23.140
  • OUTSIDE THAT EVENT HORIZON.
  • 00:19:23.140 --> 00:19:25.250
  • AND SO, YOU COULD LITERALLY
  • 00:19:25.250 --> 00:19:26.150
  • HAVE THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE
  • 00:19:26.150 --> 00:19:27.190
  • DEVELOPING WHILE ZERO TIME'S
  • 00:19:27.190 --> 00:19:28.240
  • PASSING ON EARTH, ON DAY FOUR.
  • 00:19:28.240 --> 00:19:30.080
  • - DAVID: WOW.
  • 00:19:30.080 --> 00:19:31.230
  • - DR. HOUTS: AND THEN, THE
  • 00:19:31.230 --> 00:19:32.130
  • STARS WOULD APPEAR INSTANTLY,
  • 00:19:32.130 --> 00:19:33.200
  • ONCE -- AS THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT
  • 00:19:33.200 --> 00:19:36.090
  • 17 TIMES THAT GOD IS STRETCHING
  • 00:19:36.090 --> 00:19:38.030
  • OUT THE HEAVENS, AS HE
  • 00:19:38.030 --> 00:19:39.140
  • STRETCHED OUT THE HEAVENS --
  • 00:19:39.140 --> 00:19:41.140
  • ONCE WE CAME BACK OUT OF
  • 00:19:41.140 --> 00:19:42.110
  • THAT...TIMELESS ZONE, I GUESS
  • 00:19:42.110 --> 00:19:44.050
  • YOU COULD CALL IT.
  • 00:19:44.050 --> 00:19:45.040
  • - DAVID: OKAY.
  • 00:19:45.040 --> 00:19:46.050
  • - DR. HOUTS: SO, IT'S A VERY
  • 00:19:46.050 --> 00:19:46.260
  • BIBLICALLY CONSISTENT THEORY.
  • 00:19:46.260 --> 00:19:48.080
  • AND IT'S ALSO CONSISTENT WITH
  • 00:19:48.080 --> 00:19:50.040
  • OUR OBSERVATIONS AND IT
  • 00:19:50.040 --> 00:19:51.120
  • ELIMINATES THE NEED FOR
  • 00:19:51.120 --> 00:19:52.180
  • SO, IF I JUST WANNA LOOK AT IT
  • 00:19:55.080 --> 00:19:55.290
  • SCIENTIFICALLY -- I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:19:55.290 --> 00:19:56.200
  • MUCH ABOUT THIS YET...
  • 00:19:56.200 --> 00:19:58.070
  • - DAVID: YEAH.
  • 00:19:58.070 --> 00:19:58.230
  • - DR. HOUTS: ...I WOULD
  • 00:19:58.230 --> 00:19:59.110
  • TEND TO FAVOR THE THEORY THAT
  • 00:19:59.110 --> 00:20:00.020
  • DOESN'T MAKE ME MAKE STUFF
  • 00:20:00.020 --> 00:20:00.210
  • UP, LIKE DARK ENERGY.
  • 00:20:00.210 --> 00:20:03.020
  • BECAUSE AT LEAST-- YOU KNOW,
  • 00:20:03.020 --> 00:20:03.220
  • AND PEOPLE -- WE'D STILL
  • 00:20:03.220 --> 00:20:04.100
  • FROM A PURELY SCIENTIFIC
  • 00:20:06.230 --> 00:20:07.110
  • STANDPOINT.
  • 00:20:07.110 --> 00:20:08.020
  • NOW, AS CHRISTIANS, WE KNOW THE
  • 00:20:08.020 --> 00:20:08.240
  • BIBLE'S GOD'S INERRANT WORD.
  • 00:20:08.240 --> 00:20:09.140
  • - DAVID: YEAH.
  • 00:20:09.140 --> 00:20:10.100
  • - DR. HOUTS: BUT EVEN AS A
  • 00:20:10.100 --> 00:20:11.030
  • NON-CHRISTIAN, IF SOMEONE WAS A
  • 00:20:11.030 --> 00:20:11.280
  • NON-CHRISTIAN JUST LOOKING AT
  • 00:20:11.280 --> 00:20:13.010
  • IT OBJECTIVELY, THEY'D WANNA BE
  • 00:20:13.010 --> 00:20:15.110
  • ALLOWED TO CONSIDER
  • 00:20:15.110 --> 00:20:15.290
  • BOTH THEORIES.
  • 00:20:15.290 --> 00:20:16.180
  • AND THEY'RE NOT...UM, THERE'VE
  • 00:20:16.180 --> 00:20:18.000
  • ACTUALLY BEEN PETITIONS SIGNED
  • 00:20:18.000 --> 00:20:20.020
  • BY HUNDREDS OF SCIENTIST
  • 00:20:20.020 --> 00:20:20.200
  • SAYING: HEY, IT'S TIME TO GIVE
  • 00:20:20.200 --> 00:20:21.220
  • UP ON THE BIG BANG.
  • 00:20:21.220 --> 00:20:22.190
  • - DAVID: YEAH.
  • 00:20:22.190 --> 00:20:23.090
  • - DR. HOUTS: YOU KNOW, BUT
  • 00:20:23.090 --> 00:20:24.180
  • THOSE ARE LARGELY IGNORED,
  • 00:20:24.180 --> 00:20:25.260
  • AT THE MOMENT.
  • 00:20:25.260 --> 00:20:26.170
  • AGAIN, IT'S NOT PURELY
  • 00:20:26.170 --> 00:20:27.040
  • A RELIGIOUS ARGUMENT.
  • 00:20:28.020 --> 00:20:31.020
  • IT'S MORE OF AN ARGUMENT
  • 00:20:31.020 --> 00:20:31.230
  • THAT'S: HEY, WE SHOULD BE
  • 00:20:31.230 --> 00:20:33.060
  • ALLOWED TO JUST PURSUE HOWEVER
  • 00:20:33.060 --> 00:20:34.050
  • THE EVIDENCE LEADS US AND NOT
  • 00:20:34.050 --> 00:20:36.020
  • BE CONSTRICTED TO ONLY THEORIES
  • 00:20:36.020 --> 00:20:37.180
  • THAT...THAT SUPPORT ATHEISM OR
  • 00:20:37.180 --> 00:20:39.110
  • SOMEHOW DON'T SUPPORT
  • 00:20:39.110 --> 00:20:40.150
  • THE BIBLE.
  • 00:20:40.150 --> 00:20:41.290
  • AND THAT'S, I THINK, THE--
  • 00:20:41.290 --> 00:20:42.290
  • - DAVID: WHICH ARE IN TROUBLE,
  • 00:20:42.290 --> 00:20:43.210
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:20:43.210 --> 00:20:44.020
  • - DR. HOUTS: YEAH.
  • 00:20:44.020 --> 00:20:44.180
  • - DAVID: THOSE THEORIES
  • 00:20:44.180 --> 00:20:45.060
  • ARE IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:20:45.060 --> 00:20:45.200
  • AND I THINK THAT THEY WILL BE
  • 00:20:45.200 --> 00:20:47.040
  • REPLACED WITH OTHER THEORIES.
  • 00:20:47.040 --> 00:20:48.200
  • NOW, THE NEW THEORIES WILL
  • 00:20:48.200 --> 00:20:50.000
  • PROBABLY ALSO TRY TO COME AT IT
  • 00:20:50.000 --> 00:20:51.110
  • FROM AN ATHEISTIC PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:20:51.110 --> 00:20:52.130
  • - DR. HOUTS: I THINK THEY'LL
  • 00:20:52.130 --> 00:20:53.140
  • ALMOST BE REQUIRED TO, NOW.
  • 00:20:53.140 --> 00:20:55.220
  • AND THEY SHOULDN'T BE.
  • 00:20:55.220 --> 00:20:56.090
  • - DAVID: YEAH.
  • 00:20:56.090 --> 00:20:56.270
  • - DR. HOUTS: THEY SHOULD BE
  • 00:20:56.270 --> 00:20:57.170
  • ALLOWED TO JUST LOOK
  • 00:20:57.170 --> 00:20:58.030
  • AT THE SCIENCE.
  • 00:20:58.030 --> 00:20:58.170
  • WHAT IS IT TELLING US?
  • 00:20:58.170 --> 00:20:59.160
  • - DAVID: WE SHOULD BE ALLOWED
  • 00:20:59.160 --> 00:21:00.090
  • TO FREELY THINK.
  • 00:21:00.090 --> 00:21:00.230
  • - DR. HOUTS: YEAH.
  • 00:21:00.230 --> 00:21:01.090
  • - DAVID: WE SHOULD BE ALLOWED
  • 00:21:01.090 --> 00:21:02.170
  • TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX AND TO
  • 00:21:02.170 --> 00:21:03.090
  • CONSIDER ALL POSSIBILITIES.
  • 00:21:03.090 --> 00:21:03.290
  • - DR. HOUTS: RIGHT.
  • 00:21:03.290 --> 00:21:04.150
  • AND THAT'S TRUE SCIENCE.
  • 00:21:04.150 --> 00:21:05.080
  • - DAVID: REAL SCIENCE!
  • 00:21:05.080 --> 00:21:05.260
  • - DR. HOUTS: TO ME, IT'S
  • 00:21:05.260 --> 00:21:07.140
  • BECOME FAKE SCIENCE WHEN YOU'RE
  • 00:21:07.140 --> 00:21:08.090
  • LIKE: "WELL, NO, YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:21:08.090 --> 00:21:08.290
  • ALLOWED TO CONSIDER THAT 'CAUSE
  • 00:21:08.290 --> 00:21:09.210
  • IT DOESN'T AGREE WITH THAT
  • 00:21:09.210 --> 00:21:10.100
  • PERSON'S RELIGIOUS VIEW."
  • 00:21:10.100 --> 00:21:11.030
  • - DAVID: WOW.
  • 00:21:11.030 --> 00:21:11.160
  • - DR. HOUTS: AND SO, IF THAT
  • 00:21:11.160 --> 00:21:12.290
  • PERSON IS AN ATHEIST AND SAYS,
  • 00:21:12.290 --> 00:21:13.200
  • "WELL, THAT DOESN'T AGREE WITH

  • CAN A CHRISTIAN STILL BELIEVE

  • SOMEONE IS STRUGGLING WITH

  • THIS, JUST STEP BACK AND-- OR

  • REALIZE THAT IT'S A VERY, VERY
  • 00:23:51.080 --> 00:23:53.230
  • WEAK THEORY, AT BEST.

  • IS: WHY WOULD WE CONSIDER

  • SOMETHING LIKE THE BIG BANG AND
  • 00:24:02.240 --> 00:24:04.180

  • BIBLICAL TIMEFRAME WHEN THE
  • 00:24:06.160 --> 00:24:08.160
  • CONTEXT CLEARLY SEEMS TO
  • 00:24:08.160 --> 00:24:10.250
  • INDICATE THAT IT IS
  • 00:24:10.250 --> 00:24:11.250
  • NOT POSSIBLE.
  • 00:24:11.250 --> 00:24:13.070
  • THE ORDER OF EVENTS MENTIONED
  • 00:24:13.070 --> 00:24:15.190
  • IN GENESIS -- AND I'D LOVE FOR

  • YOU TO BRIEFLY TACKLE THAT --
  • 00:24:16.240 --> 00:24:18.040
  • THE ORDER OF EVENTS MENTIONED
  • 00:24:18.040 --> 00:24:19.210
  • IN THE GENESIS ACCOUNT OF
  • 00:24:19.210 --> 00:24:21.120
  • CREATION IS...INCOMPATIBLE WITH
  • 00:24:21.120 --> 00:24:23.010
  • BIG BANG COSMOLOGY.
  • 00:24:23.010 --> 00:24:24.260
  • - DR. HOUTS: YEAH.
  • 00:24:24.260 --> 00:24:26.030
  • AND THAT'S A REALLY GOOD POINT,
  • 00:24:26.030 --> 00:24:26.250
  • TOO.
  • 00:24:26.250 --> 00:24:27.030
  • IT'S NOT JUST A QUESTION

  • OF AGE.
  • 00:24:27.210 --> 00:24:28.010
  • IT'S JUST THE ENTIRE SEQUENCE
  • 00:24:28.010 --> 00:24:29.030
  • OF EVENTS THAT ALSO TELLS US,
  • 00:24:29.030 --> 00:24:30.230
  • YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T FIT THE BIG
  • 00:24:30.230 --> 00:24:32.060
  • BANG INTO THE BIBLE.
  • 00:24:32.060 --> 00:24:33.100
  • PROVERBS -- I THINK IT'S 14:12
  • 00:24:33.100 --> 00:24:36.000
  • -- WHEN IT TALKS ABOUT THERE'S
  • 00:24:36.000 --> 00:24:37.010
  • A WAY THAT SEEMS RIGHT TO A
  • 00:24:37.010 --> 00:24:38.180
  • MAN, BUT ITS END IS THE
  • 00:24:38.180 --> 00:24:40.190
  • WAY OF DEATH.
  • 00:24:40.190 --> 00:24:41.250
  • - DAVID: THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:24:41.250 --> 00:24:42.190
  • - DR. HOUTS: I THINK FOR A LOT
  • 00:24:42.190 --> 00:24:43.110
  • OF CHRISTIANS, THEY'RE LIKE:
  • 00:24:43.110 --> 00:24:44.040
  • "WELL, I GOT THIS FRIEND, AND,
  • 00:24:44.040 --> 00:24:44.250
  • HE WON'T COME TO CHURCH WITH ME
  • 00:24:44.250 --> 00:24:45.200
  • 'CAUSE HE'S JUST REALLY STUCK
  • 00:24:45.200 --> 00:24:46.110
  • ON THE BIG BANG.
  • 00:24:46.110 --> 00:24:47.020
  • SO, MAYBE IF I WAFFLE A LITTLE
  • 00:24:47.020 --> 00:24:47.230
  • BIT, I CAN GET HIM TO COME
  • 00:24:47.230 --> 00:24:49.060
  • TO CHURCH."
  • 00:24:49.060 --> 00:24:49.180
  • WELL, THAT SEEMS RIGHT, BUT,
  • 00:24:49.180 --> 00:24:50.250
  • AGAIN, THE BIBLE TELLS US NOT
  • 00:24:50.250 --> 00:24:51.160
  • TO DO THAT.
  • 00:24:51.160 --> 00:24:51.280
  • YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE'S GOD'S
  • 00:24:51.280 --> 00:24:52.230
  • INERRANT WORD.
  • 00:24:52.230 --> 00:24:53.240
  • THAT WAS WHEN-- PEOPLE WERE
  • 00:24:53.240 --> 00:24:54.250
  • ENCOURAGING ME TO BECOME A
  • 00:24:54.250 --> 00:24:56.140
  • CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:24:56.140 --> 00:24:57.280
  • I WOULD COME UP WITH ALL KINDS
  • 00:24:57.280 --> 00:24:59.290
  • OF COMPROMISED POSITIONS,
  • 00:24:59.290 --> 00:25:01.030
  • JUST TRYING TO FIND
  • 00:25:01.030 --> 00:25:02.240
  • COMMON GROUND.
  • 00:25:02.240 --> 00:25:03.100
  • AND, ONE GUY, IN PARTICULAR, HE
  • 00:25:03.100 --> 00:25:04.210
  • WOULD ALWAYS SAY: "NOPE.
  • 00:25:04.210 --> 00:25:05.270
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THIS."

  • [DAVID LAUGHS]
  • 00:25:06.230 --> 00:25:07.080
  • AND I REMEMBER, I WAS ALMOST
  • 00:25:07.080 --> 00:25:08.030
  • LIKE...I WAS LIKE: "COME ON!
  • 00:25:08.030 --> 00:25:09.250
  • YOU KNOW, I'M TRYIN' TO
  • 00:25:09.250 --> 00:25:11.050
  • WORK WITH YOU."
  • 00:25:11.050 --> 00:25:11.190
  • - DAVID: RIGHT, RIGHT.
  • 00:25:11.190 --> 00:25:12.220
  • - DR. HOUTS: YOU KNOW?
  • 00:25:12.220 --> 00:25:13.200
  • AND, BUT HE WOULDN'T.
  • 00:25:13.200 --> 00:25:14.190
  • AND, IN HINDSIGHT, IF HE HAD
  • 00:25:14.190 --> 00:25:15.090
  • SAID-- IF HE'D COMPROMISED,
  • 00:25:15.090 --> 00:25:16.050
  • HE'D SAID, "WELL, MAYBE THE
  • 00:25:16.050 --> 00:25:16.250
  • BIBLE'S MISTRANSLATED, OR MAYBE
  • 00:25:16.250 --> 00:25:17.250
  • THIS, MAYBE THAT," I WOULD
  • 00:25:17.250 --> 00:25:19.040
  • HAVE, I PROBABLY WOULD
  • 00:25:19.040 --> 00:25:20.090
  • I MEAN, I'D HAVE BEEN LIKE,
  • 00:25:23.090 --> 00:25:23.290
  • "WELL, OKAY, YOU KNOW, THEY CAN
  • 00:25:23.290 --> 00:25:25.010
  • MAKE THE BIBLE SAY ANYTHING
  • 00:25:25.010 --> 00:25:25.210
  • THEY WANT TO."
  • 00:25:25.210 --> 00:25:26.130
  • - DAVID: RIGHT.
  • 00:25:26.130 --> 00:25:27.050
  • - DR. HOUTS: AND SO, I WOULD
  • 00:25:27.050 --> 00:25:28.050
  • SAY JUST ENCOURAGE PEOPLE.
  • 00:25:28.050 --> 00:25:28.240
  • DON'T COMPROMISE.
  • 00:25:28.240 --> 00:25:29.170
  • DON'T-- IT'S NOT A WORKABLE
  • 00:25:29.170 --> 00:25:30.100
  • COMPROMISE IF ANYBODY THINKS
  • 00:25:30.100 --> 00:25:31.110
  • IN CASUAL CONVERSATION, THEY
  • 00:25:34.080 --> 00:25:34.280
  • MIGHT THINK, "WELL, IF I JUST
  • 00:25:34.280 --> 00:25:35.190
  • SAY, 'OH, YEAH, I CAN MAKE THE
  • 00:25:35.190 --> 00:25:36.140
  • BIG BANG...' I CAN PRETEND IT'S
  • 00:25:36.140 --> 00:25:37.060
  • COMPATIBLE WITH THE BIBLE,
  • 00:25:37.060 --> 00:25:38.120
  • MAYBE I CAN GET THIS GUY TO DO
  • 00:25:38.120 --> 00:25:39.120
  • A BIBLE STUDY WITH ME," THEY
  • 00:25:39.120 --> 00:25:40.080
  • MIGHT THINK IT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:25:40.080 --> 00:25:42.270
  • BUT IF THAT PERSON'S REALLY
  • 00:25:42.270 --> 00:25:43.170
  • INTERESTED, THEY'LL GO A
  • 00:25:43.170 --> 00:25:44.050
  • STEP FURTHER.
  • 00:25:44.050 --> 00:25:44.190
  • AND THEY'LL FIGURE OUT THAT
  • 00:25:44.190 --> 00:25:45.150
  • THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NO WAY YOU
  • 00:25:45.150 --> 00:25:46.110
  • COULD FIT THE BIG BANG
  • 00:25:46.110 --> 00:25:47.020
  • INTO THE BIBLE.
  • 00:25:47.020 --> 00:25:48.130
  • - DAVID: MIKE, THAT'S
  • 00:25:48.130 --> 00:25:49.130
  • GREAT ADVICE.
  • 00:25:49.130 --> 00:25:50.050
  • I APPRECIATE YOU SHARIN' THAT.
  • 00:25:50.050 --> 00:25:51.070
  • UH, LISTEN, YOU'VE TACKLED SOME
  • 00:25:51.070 --> 00:25:52.190
  • OF THIS IN A FOUR-DVD SET

  • CALLED "ASSUMPTIONS AND THE AGE
  • 00:25:54.190 --> 00:25:55.200
  • OF THE EARTH,"
  • 00:25:55.200 --> 00:25:57.060
  • WHERE YOU NOT ONLY GET
  • 00:25:57.060 --> 00:25:59.120
  • INTO THE BIG BANG, BUT ALSO
  • 00:25:59.120 --> 00:26:00.250
  • INTO RADIOMETRIC DATING
  • 00:26:00.250 --> 00:26:01.270
  • AND CARBON DATING, WHICH ARE
  • 00:26:01.270 --> 00:26:03.040
  • TWO OTHER BIG ONES.
  • 00:26:03.040 --> 00:26:05.240
  • WE'RE COMPLETELY OUT OF TIME,
  • 00:26:05.240 --> 00:26:06.270
  • NOW, BUT I'M GONNA HAVE
  • 00:26:06.270 --> 00:26:08.060
  • TO HAVE YOU AGAIN
  • 00:26:08.060 --> 00:26:09.050
  • IN THE FUTURE.
  • 00:26:09.050 --> 00:26:09.190
  • - DR. HOUTS: GREAT.
  • 00:26:09.190 --> 00:26:10.050
  • APPRECIATE IT.
  • 00:26:10.050 --> 00:26:10.180
  • THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.
  • 00:26:10.180 --> 00:26:11.060
  • - DAVID: THANK YOU FOR
  • 00:26:11.060 --> 00:26:11.240
  • BEING HERE.
  • 00:26:11.240 --> 00:26:12.090
  • WE HAVE DISCOVERED THAT THE BIG
  • 00:26:12.090 --> 00:26:13.170
  • BANG THEORY IS A WEAK THEORY,
  • 00:26:13.170 --> 00:26:15.060
  • EVEN THOUGH MANY COSMOLOGISTS
  • 00:26:15.060 --> 00:26:16.150
  • STILL HOLD IT IN HIGH REGARD.
  • 00:26:16.170 --> 00:26:19.170
  • THEY PUT IT ON A PEDESTAL.
  • 00:26:19.170 --> 00:26:20.090
  • BUT JUST LIKE PSALM 19 TELLS
  • 00:26:20.090 --> 00:26:21.130
