Let’s have a look into the Universe.
Steady-state (equilibrium) and transience relate to the relationship between the formation of landscapes and the processes acting upon them. Simply defined in a mountain system, Steady-state is a delicate balance of erosion and (constant) rock uplift such that a statistically invariant topography and constant denudation rate are maintained (Whipple, 2001), whilst transience relates to a changing landscape.
Noted British scientist Stephen Hawking has a new book, The Grand Design, co-authored by American physicist Leonard Mlodinow. In it, he puts forth the argument that the laws of physics created the universe from nothing, and that these laws make the idea of God "redundant." Do you agree? Please, share your views at the end of this article–which argues that Science may know some of the processes of creation, but will always be hard put to answer: who placed these laws in the universe? Thank You, Dear Readers, in advance for your comments.
