Not incorrect assumptions, of course.  And you have no theory, remember?

No testable predictions, no attempt to describe reality.  You remain
debunked.

You can get quite far in physics without assuming that the universe is
closed.  You're just being laughably silly, now.

Nothing affects "the theory" since no theory exists.  Tipler's "Omega
Point" bullshit, however, requires harnassing the power of a collapsing
universe (even though the universe doesn't appear to be closed at all :-)
by a single supercomputer (even though he gives no clue as to how it would
be done, built, etc. :-) which is inevitably built (even though he
provides no reason as to why it is inevitable :-) by the only intelligent
species in the universe (else we'd have dueling supercomputers :-).
Perhaps you and Mr. Tipler should get swords and try to take one another's
heads, screaming "There can be only one!"

Get back to us when you finally figure out how to read with comprehension,
Al.  Until then, just lay there and soak in your self-debunking juices
until you can find another science-fiction novel to try to foist off as
a
"scientific theory."
