    Physics is fascinating. I just wish that it could be explained in more simpler terms, so that I can grasp what I'm being told, lol.

    What do you think about Quantum Mechanics, if I may ask? And yes, this is a pick-up line. :D The one about your butt wasn't. :high5:

    I don't think scientists understand it entirely either, lol.

    Do you think that quantum mechanics gives hints that some kind of God exists?

    Richard Feynman once said anyone who says they understand quantum mechanics doesn't understand quantum mechanics, and I doubt anyone during his lifetime understood it better than he did.

    No, on the contrary. If quantum mechanics has done anything, it is explaining how the universe can exist without a god.

    I think that black hole singularities gives hints that God exists because it doesn't follow logical reasoning and God is and operates in ways or in a way that humans can't comprehend.

    I think also that the cosmological constant gives hints that God exists because it can't be explained why it is there or where it came from.

    The fact that we can’t comprehensie it (yet), does not prove or even suggestie that there is a god. In the past people said “cloud goes boom! Must be god!” Now we know that it’s just an electric discharge. At some point in time, we will also 7nderstan exactly what black holes are and how they work.

    In fact, the idea of a body so massive that even light could not escape was briefly proposed by astronomical pioneer and English clergyman John Michellin a letter published in November 1784. So the theory existed well before the first black hole was actually discovered.

    A few years later, the great French mathematician Pierre Simon Laplace came to the same conclusion independently.

    But Einstein's Relativity theory predicted that it existed, giving it one of the first solid evidence.

    That's true, but Einstein felt that even though his theory allowed for them, nature would not contain such objects.

    Einstein has been wrong more than once

    Yes, two things that spring to mind are his initial belief in a static state universe, despite his theory predicting a dynamic universe, and his disbelief in the randomness inherent in quantum mechanics. Many great thinkers have been wrong about a lot of things.
