    Do you think the total electric charge of Our Universe is zero?

    i'd rather ask: "why do you think that it is (non-)zero?"
  4. Apr 1, 2005 #3
    Because no confirmed theory can prove or disprove yes or no answer to this question.
    Also, why is there more matter then antimatter in Our Universe?

    huh! i hope that the poll results here and now, on physicsforums, will finally give the answer to this question!!!

    This depends on two things, I guess:

    1) The validity of conservation of charge in all reactions.
    2) The initial conditions of the universe.

    The first is testable, but the second probably isn't, so I don't think I can even guess.
