On this episode of ID the Future we hear commentary on the singularity from Frank Tipler, Professor of Mathematical Physics at Tulane University and co-author of The Anthropic Cosmological Principle.
This isn’t the supposed future singularity imagined by transhumanists, but the evidentially well-supported singularity at the foundation of the the Big Bang. The equations are clear, says Tipler: This singularity had an existence outside of space and time, was intrinsically infinite, and not subject to any laws of physics — among other arresting features. Atheists today still resist this conclusion, Tipler says, but only this conclusion has experimental support. This episode is drawn from bonus material from the new film series Science Uprising.
