Universe to Collapse
According to a news report appeared in the Hindustan Times on 16/12/13 the universe may one day collapse and everything in it, including the Earth, will be compressed into a small, super hot, hard ball.
According to the scientists, this risk of collapse is greater than previously thought and the process may have already started somewhere in the universe. New calculations from physicists at the University of Southern Denmark confirm the earlier predictions by the physicists, suggesting sooner or later a radical shift in forces of the universe will cause every little particle in to become extremely heavy.
Everything – every grain of sand on Earth, every planet in the solar system and every galaxy – will become millions of billions times heavier than it is now, and this will have disastrous consequences. The new weight will squeeze all material into a small, super hot and super heavy ball, and the universe as we know it will cease to exist. This process is called a phase transition and is very similar to what happens when for example water turns to steam or a magnet heats up and loses its magnetization.
Bible believers do not take it as a surprise, but it only confirms the inspiration and authority of God’s word. Cf. 2 Peter 3: 10, 11.
