    Quote from Alcatraz

    Evolution is still a theory dude. I hate to break reality to you but its the sad and pitiful truth.


    There is a diffrence between Scientific Theory, and theory in the regular world. In the regular world, a theory is something that hasn't been proven, and there is no evidence for besides the idea. A scientific theory is formulated using the observed evidence, and formulates a theory around the evidence. If it doesn't fit with the evidence, it's not even a hypothesis.

    I don't get why you deny only the theories that you want too. You don't deny Atomic Theory, Special Relativity, or Gravitation, because they have nothing to do with your beliefs. Evolution and the Big Bang intrude on what you believe strongly, and automatically get ignored. Evolution has been proven, at least, just as much as any other Scientific theories.

    Rememberer what I said way before? A day from who's perspective? Gods, but what is that? Relativity asks some intresting questions, and so, well, is anyone responding to my posts?(prophecies, ect.)


    What on EARTH does Relativity have to do with Prophecies? And what questions does it ask...

    I've never read the Bible nor come close to even 15% of it. I'm a fast reader and with that I haft to read it word to word or I wont even understand what I'm reading. I hate that. But seriously give me the scripture where it says these things so you can justify your claims. If you can't provide it admit your making a complete guess.


    I'm pretty sure we have. Multiple times.

    Creationists and Christians should have a flag that has "Show us the Evidence!" written as a mantra. It's pretty much all you people say.

    Evolution doesn't match up with the bible stating "according to its kind", so plants, animals ect. evolving into different kinds, and God creating Adam from dust, so that's why not evolution, and God creating the universe with the big-bang doesn't seem a proble, as long as it happened in 7 days.
    edit: to above post, its more evidence because it would match up, the same thing in a different area. But as I said, I doubt it.


    I can see that you're going on the automatic assumption that God is real and everything in the Bible is true. Where do you believe the evidence for God lays?

    And, dare I become too clichéd, where did God come from?

    Think, is "7 days" from what perspective? Perhaps God said "let their be light" and the big bang or something like that happened, and from his perfect perspective a few days later he created man. Even evolution could match up, but I seriously doubt this. I don't know the details, but I believe for reasons in my other post,and more; while many christians dimiss evolutiong without examining the evidence on the other side, atheists do the same thing.


    You know, I'm curious what you think the problem is with Evolution and the Big Bang?

    I want to see if you'll say the same thing as everyone else.

    My favorite mount command, you mean? /dev/hda2 /new/subdir, definitely. Although -o loop ~/disks/dvd-image.iso /media/dvd comes pretty close.

    Oh. That's not what you meant, is it...

    Also, slightly off topic, do any of you know who Professor Brian Cox is?


    Yup! Keyboardist for D:Ream, works at CERN, filmed Wonders of the Solar System as well as Wonders of the Universe, as well as other documentaries such as The Big Bang Machine.

    Awesome guy.

    Sadly, I don't. What is it?


    That would be the Pale Blue Dot, a photo of Earth from the outer fringes of the Solar System, taken by the Voyager 1 spacecraft.

    This is n excerpt from Carl Sagans excellent book from which the picture got it's name, Pale Blue Dot.

    It's read by him.

    I prefer the Mandelbrot's set.


    Don't know where you got that. Julia's is the prettiest Fractal 'round.

    Honestly, I find beauty only in Astronomy. Earth's got a few pretty sights though.

    posted a message on The Universe
    Quote from SkyPiercers

    The thing that makes my head hurt the most was the lack of time and space before the big bang. Its like, there HAD to always be something.


    Many Astrophysicists and Cosmologists actually believe that there was nothing before the Big Bang. Many, such as the 'Brane' Theory use large Membranes that when collide create the Universe, to put it simply. There are other theories such as Big Bounce theory. Most of them have either have the Universe collapsing and being reborn, or caused by a larger object outside of the Universe. Then you have Multi-verses, such as the Chaotic Inflation Theory, which has many bubble Universes. Most of these theories require Infinite regressions of the Universe, which many people don't like. Personally, I don't believe that any one of these theories is the whole explanation, but they all might play a part.

    posted a message on The Universe
    13.7 (give or take .14) billion years ago, the Universe began. Our knowledge of the Big Bang begins one Planck second after the Big Bang (10^-43 seconds). After that came the inflationary period, 300,000 years after, the Universe was cool enough for nucleosynthesis to begin, and the lightest gases were fused. A couple hundred million years later the first stars formed.

    We know this all happened. The evidence points to the Universe not being infinite. It could be, but we know that it happened. It's always good to question the current predominant theory, but saying it's downright wrong is ignorant.
