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.

Memoir - The Year of Kent State

by The Urban Blabbermouth
I wanted to write a fictional memoir and it got away from me. 

I was born in the Year of Kent State. I didn't know. I was watching a cable channel specializing in historical programs, in this case, newsworthy events from the 1970s. The Ohio National Guard shot 13 unarmed students protesting the Vietnam War on the Kent State University campus. Four students died. By the time I was aware of a bigger world than my own, Kent State passed into history.

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.

Climbing to New Heights

by The Urban Blabbermouth
It started when I was ten.  I was riding shotgun with my father when a small plane crossed the highway in front of us.  The plane floated gently to its landing, like it had all the time in the world.  It was beautiful.  I knew then I wanted to be a pilot.  

I dreamed of soaring with the clouds and flying through them.  I could go anywhere the crow flies.  No stuck in traffic following a road as laid out by some anonymous engineer.  I could fly with the birds, although, I never thought myself a bird.  I loved the freedom.

But, I fear heights.  

It's not just any heights, it's low heights, the kind you get with stairs, balconies, bridges, and landing airplanes.  When I fly on airlines as a passenger, I look out the window at thirty thousand feet, no fear.  Somewhere between six feet, my height, and thirty thousand feet, airplane's height, lives my fear, a mysterious feeling that emerges from my stomach and rises up into my chest.  I can't…
