Koala, no. 17 isn't wrong, as you stated. But what you said about being close to the speed of light isn`t wrong either. According to relativity, both would apply.

Also I find it quite funny how you tell Silverfalcon that there is no evidence for one of his points, then bring up a point that has no evidence itself.

time isn't a force. its accepted that its the 4th dimension of our universe, but I question that in my own head. I just have a hard time connecting the concept of time with spacial dimensions. I know they`re related in some sense because one affects the other. But theres something else to it...

Silverfalcon

On your second point, There is No evidence whatsoever for that.

Read up on Vacuum fluctuations. It is beleived the Universe is one in which the Symetry of particles "broke".
