Duh, the more you know, the less you know, that is the adage which is coined for this very phenomenon. You offer no answers, your religion offers no answers, and even if the assertions in your religion were true, they are still not answers. The more answers you have, the more questions you should also have, that's a sign of curiosity, not a weakness. All your religion does is assert the "who," well, who cares? I know my computer was made by Dell, that doesn't help me know how it works, how to fix it, and how to program it, in any way.

Here you have one of the major differences between science and religion.
Science: verifiable evidence, facts, and repeatable results. What can be measured/observed is studied, science does not include the supernatural(nor is it denied). If new evidence/research overturns established "theories" it isn't heresy.
Religion: It is written that way, to question is blasphemy. What does get lost in the static is philosophy and ideals for treating one another better.
Here's something to mull over: The diameter of the observable universe is estimated at about 28 billion parsecs(93 billion light years)compare this to the size of the Earth.
The farthest visible object cannot be more distant in light years than the age of the universe, and the current contender at over 13.4 billion light years will (have) move(d) out of our 'sight' as time goes on. This makes the current visible diameter somewhere around 26 - 27 billion light years. Expansion of space exceeds the limits of c over that distance of course, so the actual diameter is considerably larger. The definition of observable vs. visible is arrived at through the cosmic microwave background radiation, and that is where the calculation of 93 billion light years for the Observable universe comes from.
But of course we both know that the Earth is only thousands of years old and that God created the entire heavens just for the Jewish tribesmen to marvel at.

And than you know that your computer was designed... One cell is way more advanced but you contend natural processes (random chaos) If design had nothing to do with God then would you still fight it?... Or maybe you just have some personal problems....

Knowing if the machine is designed still does not help understand how it works, you are failing to understand this very simple concept, and it's the concept that the intelligent religious people not only understand, it's why they don't deny the benefit of science at all.

My point is, who cares? So what if everything in the universe was designed, other than being a reason to fire that contractor, it does not answer any real questions and offers no solutions to our problems, none. So again, how does knowing that the computer is made by Dell help to understand how it works and how to repair it?

You don't understand science or evolution. Intelligent design is religion. You have ignored request after request to supply information to the contrary. You are a broken record of utter stupidity.

You mean like proofs are mathematical, that the speed of light through a vacuum has been verified constant, or that the devil is constantly goosing you in de tail?

My view it isn't... The speed of light is variable and it determined by the total separation distance of all matter with inertial mass in the universe, the denser the local mass the slower the value of c... The Theory of photon absorption and retransmission can be better defined with variance of the value of c within a medium and the only reason absorption and retransmission is used in calculation of em wave traversing a medium is due to the long held view that c is Constant... If c is constant then a definable reason increase in time that occurs when a em wave/photon/electron passes through a medium ...

I disagree... It varies at the rate of expansion of the universe and the rate of local denser regions but the rate of variance is not within the detectable range of human scale... If a change of one billionth of a second occurs over a 1000 year time frame on human scale it would be Constant...

Yeah well how about going around a black hole? Got an data on that?... Can light not bend?

Actually "light" em wave always travels in a straight line... It's the Quantum State (Space Time) that is bent by large grouping of particles with inertial mass... I know it's a difficult concept but it a relative issue.. From the Relative position of the light wave it goes in a straight line because it would not perceive the bending of space time from it's perspective... But from an outside observer it looks like it is bent...

Ah, well, since I have not studied physics in great length I often get corrected by those who have. I make no qualms of such corrections, and thank your for doing so, learning is always fun, even when it's not a topic I enjoy much. ;)

Then go start a thread about one.
This one is already thread enough. Why waste time and space starting another?
However, I will help "change gears" and display a definition of the "rpm's" of part of broken repetitive 45 records, which really has nothing at all to do with TOE, but is also very helpful, for those living in the real world anyway.

Revolutions per minute (rpm) and angular velocity, two measures of how fast a point rotates about another point, are used to solve physics, mechanical engineering and computer programming problems. Often, rpm and angular velocity are used interchangeably, to simulate pulleys turning and wheels rolling in engineering simulators and video games.

You'll have to go check your OWN sums though ...my computers are not into the hypocricy or the hate baiter games of grade school level judgeMental-ist.

Try not to let the "daily spin" confuse you.

See: Identity issues (on people that "assume", Especially those that (as in repeatedly) merely "assume", often, AND INcorrectly.

As in: In Erik Erikson's stages of psychosocial development, the emergence of an identity crisis occurs during the teenage years in which people struggle between feelings of identity versus role confusion.
