Big Bang Theory Part 1


This is a guest post by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome.

How old is God?
Astrophysicists say that the universe is fifteen billion years old from Big Bang to present. So if God created Himself and created the universe at the same time then God is fifteen billion years old. It could be that God created Himself then sat around a while (a few billion years?) before creating the universe at Big Bang so we do not know God’s age but can say that His minimum age is fifteen billion years old. I am troubled with the idea that God can age and get old. Certainly does not fit with an all powerful all knowing God.
Now fifteen billion years does not really tell us God’s age. Fifteen billion years is a really long time for us humans and just is too long for us to comprehend. After all what is a one hundred year human life span compared to fifteen billion years. We need some way to relate. We can use the human life cycle: Youth, Adolescent, Adult, Old Age. We need to know where fifteen billion years fits into the human life cycle.
If fifteen billion years is at the Old Age end of things, then Judgment Day is a lot closer than we think. Yikes!

If fifteen billion years is at the Youth end of things, then the universe and planet earth and us will be here for a long long time.
Astrophysicists describe the universe as expanding and growing since Big Bang rather than shrinking and dying, so I vote for putting the fifteen billion years at the Youth end of things.

A Subway Journey Home

by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome! ~ There is a ritual to theNew York City subway system. Once there, you lose your humanity.  You are transformed into a savage, brutal and selfish automaton.  Savage in that you push and shove other riders out of your way to get into the subway car.  Brutal in that you never excuse yourself for any atrocities that you commit to get in the subway car.  Selfish in that you never give up your seat to anyone, no matter how crippled or old or pregnant they are.  Automaton in that you never look at any one else as a human being.

Now there are certain strategies that you can employ to be a successful subway rider.  You can stand by the door and obstruct the way just to be selfish and ornery.  That strategy is designed to increase your standing with your fellow passengers by impressing them with how vicious you can be pushing back at people trying to push into the car.  Whenever I see this strategy employed, I immediately piggy back on it.  I move …

Im gonna git u Sukkah

by The Urban Blabbermouth [who may or may not be shown in the photo above... - v-E] ~ True story. I am walking to my car and I notice a couple of Jewish fellows, twenty somethings, with the bouquets of what looks like bamboo or palm. I know they are Jewish for they look Hasidic. They are wearing long black jackets, wide brim black fedora hats, and have curly sideburns. In truth, I classify all Jewish who dress like this as Hasidic although they may identify themselves differently. They are standing near the corner canvassing passersby.

Encyclopedia Brown Bear

by The Urban Blabbermouth
At an age when other children decide to set up lemonade stands, Baby Bear decided to start a detective agency. His decision resulted from his experience in the Goldilocks home invasion. If you don't know this well-publicized crime case, Google Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Baby Bear wanted to become a policeman to help the other denizens of the Forest with their troubles and to maintain justice for all. Alas, the police did not accept children as applicants.

Baby Bear ran to his community library and borrowed the renowned guide, The Hardy Boys' Detective Handbook. Baby Bear spent the next twenty days, the library's lending period, studying the text. He chose the business name of "Encyclopedia Brown Bear Detective Agency" after his hero, Leroy "Encyclopedia” Brown. Baby Bear's dad hung the business sign across the garage door and opened a folding card table and four chairs in the entrance below.
