just as particles are a possibility. There is no Popper theory of god, no theory that can be falsified.

I do not understand your concern that I think god is possible. What difference can it possibly make to you.

I was an avowed athesist all through college and grad school at Harvard. I saw no possibility that god and anything supernatural could exist. But that was way back in the fifties and early sixties. Before the big bang was invented, or inflation, or dark matter. And now dark energy.

More and more science has been learning how much it does not know. It's just like the turn of the 20th century. Hopefully some new einstein will come along a clear alot of these special loose ends up for us before 2005, or in general before 2015. Hope so, after all god only allows me 80 years according to the bible- right. Perhaps we will learn that nothing is relative, that everything is absolute.

The major loose ends remind me of the godel effect, that every theory has solutions that are true but cannot be derived. Experiments are solutions of theories. At least every decent experiment I did required me to solve a theory.

But some experiments cannot be derived by any theory, yet they are true.
