Once again, the in-your-face moron reposts the same debunked,
in-your-face nonsense that he's been posting here for years.
What's wrong with you?
Stopped taking your anti-paychotic meds again?
Hi, Christopher A. Lee. Your foregoing statement consists of the
logical fallacies of bare assertion and argumentum ad hominem.
Further, it displays a shameful degree of willful ignorance and
incuriosity. A mind is a terrible thing to waste, and so it is
unfortunate to see you currently wasting yours like that. Hopefully
you will in time ameliorate the mental program of your brain in order
to bring it into conformance with the truth.
Physicist and mathematician Prof. Frank J. Tipler's Omega Point
cosmology is a proof (i.e., mathematical theorem) of God's existence
per the known laws of physics (viz., the Second Law of Thermodynamics,
General Relativity, and Quantum Mechanics), of which have been
confirmed by every experiment to date. Hence, the only way to avoid
the Omega Point Theorem is to reject empirical science. As Prof.
Stephen Hawking wrote, "one cannot really argue with a mathematical
theorem." (From p. 67 of Stephen Hawking, The Illustrated A Brief
History of Time [New York, NY: Bantam Books, 1996; 1st ed., 1988].)
Further, the Feynman-DeWitt-Weinberg quantum gravity/Standard Model
Theory of Everything (TOE) correctly describing and unifying all the
forces in physics is also mathematically required by the aforesaid
known physical laws, and the Omega Point cosmology is an inherent
component of said quantum gravity TOE.
Prof. Tipler's Omega Point cosmology has been peer-reviewed and
published in a number of the world's leading physics and science
journals. Even NASA itself has peer-reviewed his Omega Point
Theorem and found it correct according to the known laws of physics
(see below). No refutation of it exists within the peer-reviewed
scientific literature, or anywhere else for that matter.
Below are some of the peer-reviewed papers in physics and science
journals and proceedings wherein Prof. Tipler has published his Omega
Point cosmology. (The below papers, in addition to many other articles
by Tipler on the Omega Point cosmology, are also available in the

August 2007 paper was published, is one of the world's leading
peer-reviewed astrophysics journals.
Prof. Tipler's paper "Ultrarelativistic Rockets and the Ultimate
Future of the Universe" was an invited paper for a conference held at
and sponsored by NASA Lewis Research Center, so NASA itself has
peer-reviewed Tipler's Omega Point Theorem (peer-review is a standard

Out of 50 articles, Prof. Tipler's 2005 Reports on Progress in Physics
paper--which presents the Omega Point/Feynman-DeWitt-Weinberg quantum
gravity/Standard Model Theory of Everything (TOE)--was selected as one
of 12 for the "Highlights of 2005" accolade as "the very best articles
published in Reports on Progress in Physics in 2005 [Vol. 68].
Articles were selected by the Editorial Board for their outstanding
reviews of the field. They all received the highest praise from our
international referees and a high number of downloads from the journal
Website." (See Richard Palmer, Publisher, "Highlights of 2005",

Reports on Progress in Physics is the leading journal of the Institute
of Physics, Britain's main professional body for physicists. Further,
Reports on Progress in Physics has a higher impact factor (according
to Journal Citation Reports) than Physical Review Letters, which is
the most prestigious American physics journal (one, incidently, which
Prof. Tipler has been published in more than once). A journal's impact
factor reflects the importance the science community places in that
journal in the sense of actually citing its papers in their own

The only way to avoid the Omega Point cosmology is to reject the known
laws of physics (i.e., the Second Law of Thermodynamics, General
Relativity, and Quantum Mechanics), and hence to reject empirical
science: as these physical laws have been confirmed by every
experiment to date. That is, there exists no rational reason for
thinking that the Omega Point cosmology is incorrect, and indeed, one
must engage in extreme irrationality in order to argue against the
Omega Point cosmology.
Additionally, we now have the quantum gravity Theory of Everything
(TOE) required by the known laws of physics and that correctly
describes and unifies all the forces in physics: of which inherently
produces the Omega Point cosmology. So here we have an additional high
degree of assurance that the Omega Point cosmology is correct.
1. While there is a lot that gets published in physics journals that
is anti-reality and nonphysical (such as String Theory, which violates
the known laws of physics and has no experimental support whatsoever),
the reason such things are allowed to pass the peer-review process is
because the paradigm of assumptions which such papers are speaking to
has been made known, and within their operating paradigm none of the
referees could find anything crucially wrong with said papers. That
is, the paradigm itself may have nothing to do with reality, but the
peer-reviewers could find nothing fundamentally wrong with such papers
within the operating assumptions of that paradigm. Whereas, e.g., the
operating paradigm of Prof. Tipler's 2005 Reports on Progress in
Physics paper and his other papers on the Omega Point Theorem is the
known laws of physics, i.e., our actual physical reality which has
been repeatedly confirmed by every experiment conducted to date. So
the professional physicists charged with refereeing these papers could
find nothing fundamentally wrong with them within their operating
paradigm, i.e., the known laws of physics.
Additionally, in the below resource are six sections which contain
very informative videos of Prof. Tipler explaining the Omega Point
cosmology and the Feynman-DeWitt-Weinberg quantum gravity/Standard
Model TOE. The seventh section therein contains an audio interview of
Tipler. A number of these videos are not otherwise online. I also
provide some helpful notes and commentary for some of these videos.
