How can physics be connected to religion? Religion matters because it influences how people feel and the things that they think about. Physics doesn't really relate very much to it. It relates in a way - that religious ideas can directly impact a person and matter directly impacts matter. That is the only way that physics and religion really relate.

What does it mean to believe in God? Does it really matter how the events of our lives unfold anyway?

Life doesn't really matter anyway so it doesn't really matter how our lives could be influenced by a god.

Those previous statements weren't even really that significant - it is obvious that the events of life are significant or not significant - some events in peoples lives are significant and other events aren't as significant. It could be viewed as being a bunch of little details or bunch of moderately small details.

God can be portrayed as being mighty or the universe as being everywhere and god as being all powerful. Are those ideas delusions? Why would it matter that much if god was all powerful? It seems like that idea is delusional - every religion believes in an all powerful god. While different religions have differing views of how they view god they all believe in an omnipotent being of some sort.

IF you think about it, people have delusions all of the time, and god would certainly seem like something to be delusional about. But what is the person being delusional about exactly? Are they being delusional that life is grand and extensive, or are they being delusional that god is going to help them in some magical or realistic way?

These are all important questions - how can an idea influence the human psyche so significantly? What emotional or cognitive processes are being influenced when people frame things in different ways?

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
