Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

I see. Quantity is a measureable amount. 5 miles is not a measureable amount of distance.
I didn't know that.

Calm down dear. You're still wrong.

That quantity of something you refer to is a quantity of a distance unit, e.g. 5 miles.
5 miles in itself is not a quantity.
5 miles is in fact a quantity of miles. 5 of them, actually.

In the English language, which is what you are trying to speak, you moron, distance is quantity.
Merriam Webster:
distance; n.: "the degree or amount of separation between two points, lines, surfaces, or objects"
amount: n: "a quantity of something"
quan·ti·ty noun \&#712;kwän-t&#601;-t &#275;\ "an amount or number of something"
Distance is the quantity of separation between two points. It is expressed as a number of units of length, i.e., inches, feet, miles, light years.
Distance is quantity.
You religious atheists have no limit on your willingness to lie to support a point.

How does evolution not interfere with that when it says:
"evolution is understood to be the result of an unguided, unplanned process of random variation and natural selection."
And the Pope says: "We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution."
How does the Vatican accept both???
They don't.
You're lying. And I nailed you.
You're actually incorrect here.

You have not provided evidence of what you ex wife did but there is absolutely no doubt that she expended energy in whatever she did.
You are so stupid. I don't know why I bother to correct you.

Even if expending energy is required to exert power, which it isn't always, the two are still not synonymous. Great power could come from little energy; small power from great energy.

Your contention that power = energy is moronic. You are a moron.

Miles are a quantity of distance, making 5 miles a quantity of distance.

"5" is the quantity of miles.

"5 miles" is the quantity of distance.

If we could quantify being a moron, you number would be really high.

No, they do not. That's the point.

The Pope and the Church accept that evolution occurs.

They do not accept the complete Darwinist paradigm.

No, I'm not sure it will stop.

But what we can be sure of is that its expansion at any time will be finite.

Therefore, the contention that the universe is infinite is false.
