A Creation Story: Boiling Hot and Young Hydrogen Atoms Gone Wild!

Akin to the cooling of boiling water over time, physicist Brian Cox says that we are the things that young and hot “hydrogen atoms do” after they’ve cooled and aged over 13.7 billion years.

Isn’t that ridiculous? As hydrogen atoms cool and age, they make spaghetti in pots, write poems, fret over their sins, and (among a gazillion other weird things) take cats as pets! Where did this recipe and stove top that we’ve been left to cool on come from? Is there anybody stirring the pot? 

This whole talk by Brian Cox is great, but if you’re short on time at least let him tell you our contemporary creation story (at the 10:50 mark of this video clip):

    and sun damaged skins. Their concern is that in fully adopting IFRS GAAP,
    this will result to more costs than benefits, although dependent
    on the nature and the size of the business.

    Being a parent is a fulfilling and rewarding experience.
