Posted:I reckon that a thread devoted to the theory that "the universe started with a fart" sounds like it might end up being more suited to "chat."

Darn, and I was hoping that the title "meaty theology" indicated a conversation on kosher foods.

Posted:That would, of course, depend on what you consider the Universe, and what you consider its beginning to be. Your perception of the Universe may indeed begin with flatulence. Perhaps flatulence is a metaphor for the way modern society came into existance. Perhaps you feel that your own life is one big fart, in which case I advise you talk to a therapist. On the other hand, that might indicate you feel that you created the Universe, and as such you feel responsible for it.

Posted:i do sympathise with Mr Sparkey on this occasion and can suggest that you do indeed feel some responsibility for the creation of this universe. however the metaphor for that occurence being tied in with flatulence? im not so sure.

to take litterelly this claim would suggest some entity capable of creating a universe shaped/smelling fart, a simple feat by anyones standards.

however what if this entity is particularly prone to a bit of flatulence, suggesting some sort of medical problem? it may explain why there are so many particles in space, so many rings around saturn etc. but would it sugest that there were other universes floating around?

or more simply, like a fart, all merge together to create what we live in now quite happilly, for they do say the universe is expanding.

maybe it should be 'wafting'. ubbrollsmile


never ever EVER, poke me with that thing.

just my little joke. As always.

So I got to thinking.... and provoked a discussion with my bf having read a series of interesting books.... Phillip Pulmans Dark Trilogy. Fiction though it is I had an epithany

there was a word.... or a sound... I reckon the universe started with a fart

seeing as it seems to be a joke....

or maybe I'm just cynical

What do u guys reckon?

uni-verse == one song. i'm betting my money that the first instrument was of the drum/percussion family tho, not a wind or brass (which basicaly requires you to make fake farting noises to play).

Posted:In that case, presuming the universe to be similar in structure to a fart cloud, the entity which is in the middle whould presumably be the one who dealt it. Is this your theory?
