A Naturalistic Fairy Tale-Part XII

We must pause in our inexorable march toward sentience for a short period of time, geologically speaking, in order to fix our understanding of the universe a bit (a small but irrelevant detail does need a backup plan). Because our facts do ultimately hinge upon the naturalistic underpinning of the universe back to before its very beginning. And we do now know, that Dark Energy, did indeed exist throughout most of the history of the universe.1 We did now take a measurement of the universe from 9 billion years back. We are capable, are we not, because of the speed of light and such? That unmeasurable force, which composes 70 percent of the energy in the universe was acting even then in its precious way (praise Science). One of our prophets said that Dark Energy is, “one of the most, if not the most, pressing question in physics.”1 Just in case, you do not now think that we do not have a backup plan, do now listen to this. The Creationist IDiots did think that there was something special about the Earth. They were utterly egocentric as we do now know without any doubt. But we shall now assert that the Earth doth exist in a unique area of the universe–a bubble of space-time.2 So, if you, as an IDiot, or a cdesign proponent, do not now think you have any kind of upper hand in cosmology (praise Science), we do now present you with the space-time bubble. We do now assert, although previously taking Dark Energy as gospel, that there is a bubble of space-time, created by a lack of matter in the region of the Earth which distorts all of our precise and infallible measurements. We do now consider the possibility that things are not as far away as we did imagine, but we do still like Dark Energy. Because, we have known for 450 years (praise Science), that our place in the universe is not special. And that is the biggest argument against our backup plan. But we do like win-win situations, and thank you for your past stupid notions, but we are one step ahead. (Continued in Part XIII).

  1. It’s always good to have a backwards (ooops), I mean back-up plan, just in case…!;-)
