No--wasn't meant to be sarcastic--sorry for the confusion on that.

Wiki's a good starting point--then check some of the sources listed. Any good basic text on Big Bang theory should get you started.

Define 'big inductive fallacies'. At what size do they become acceptable?

Took that in college, too. What would you like to know?

Wouldn't you prefer an argument without fallacies?

Pick up a beginning physics book at the school library--there's a lot more than I could cover in a post and it would be off topic for this thread.

I think I covered that with you in a PM months ago, and that belongs in one of the origins threads anyway.

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
