  • Stable State Universe Theory

    by Stephen Webb

    The theory behind the stable state universeThe first part of this theory is to believe in absolute zero, that is when there is no energy, no heat. Now in science we believe that we cannot reach absolute zero, because we have tried and found it impossible. Think of a thermometer it gets really close to absolute zero but never reaches it. There is a simple expiation for this, When you reach absolute ... Read more
