I was personally amused at Kaku's comment about a "cosmic accident" when he came to section about the Goldilocks Zone. An entire book written to explain that all of the universe -- all of the universes -- can be reduced to an inch and a half mathematic equation, where everything has a reason and purpose; and yet all of the events that make Earth possible and livable are just an accident?

On pg. 358 Kaku questions how a mathematical equation explaining the universe can give a personal meaning to humanity, I didn't see his point. (Of course, I don't understand a lot of his points :lol: ....but that's an aside) I think it is possible to have one mathematical equation explain it all and still have there be meaning or purpose to our lives. I don't understand why you can't have both. Again, I just don't get it. :perplexed:

T, can you give me the Bible reference? I would like to read it in context. No pressure. I'll understand if you don't remember. I have never been able to give out the exact verses when I have been asked. :blush:
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Actually, I can. I looked it up Sunday at church. :grin:
This reference is from Luke 19:37-40.
