Scientific American has an interesting article this month on loop gravity (
http://www.sciam.com/article.cfm?id=big-bang-or-big-bounce). I hadn't heard
of "space-time atoms" before.

Physicists: is this really a viable theory? is it really "science?" The
guy who wrote the SciAm article certainly seems to have lots of faith in his

Theology: if something like loop gravity is correct, the universe, at least
our universe, did not have an ex nihlo beginning; it was a "bounce" of some
sort. What does theology say to that? Will the "new heavens and new earth"
be another bounce?
