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.

Nut Case :-)
Turns out --Todd Akin-- isn t sorry after all for his legitimate rape comments and stands by them.
The former congressman, who lost the 2012 Senate race in Missouri, has written a book that Politico previewed on Thursday.
By asking the public at large for forgiveness, Akin writes in the book, I was validating the willful misinterpretation of what I had said.
Akin, a conservative Republican locked in a tight race with Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, said in a TV interview in summer 2012 that he believes pregnancy can be prevented by a woman involved in legitimate rape because the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.
The firestorm was intense, with criticism coming from top Republicans as well as Democrats. GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney called Akin s comments offensive and wrong and called on him to quit the Senate race. Akin apologized, saying he made a very, very serious error and noted he wasn t the first politician to suffer from foot in mouth disease.
But McCaskill capitalized on the comment in her campaign ads and on the trail, and she easily won a second term and defeated Akin by 16 percentage points.
According to Politico s account of the book, Akin basically is standing by his original comments and blaming the news media for his downfall.
My comment about a woman s body shutting the pregnancy down was directed to the impact of stress on fertilization. This is something fertility doctors debate and discuss, Akin writes. Doubt me? Google stress and infertility, and you will find a library of research on the subject.
Hey, Fatprick, I don't have time to read that whole post right now.

But I promise I'm going to come back and read the whole thing.

I don't want to miss a word.

Please don't think I'm going to forget and not read it.

It's very important to me.

There is a msjor fallacy in modern cosmology that can easily be disproven by math and modern physics. The creation of stars just from gravity.
Once you had space created you had room to expand. The negative charge about the newly formed atoms would never let gravity alone ignite the mass into fission or fusion. You would just have an ever expanding globe of gas seeking equilibrium. That gloular shape is caused by that seeking equilibrium. But the gravity does compact and create a sort of anvil for an external force of sufficient speed and mass, or wave of energy, to start the process. Inertia locks it down so atoms can start to be split, which then detonates the surrounding area.

You are correct. I will never be on your level.

I probably was once. In early infancy, or perhaps as a fetus.

"A" x 13.8 billion = Infinity

What is "A"?

There is not a word for continuing to expand.

Physicists use "infinte" in place of not having a word.

The argument, which I successfully destroyed, is that the expansion has NOW traversed an infinite distance.

Impossible. "Infinite" is "that which cannot be reached".

Reaching that which cannot be reached is contradictory.

Thus, "infinite distance" itself is an oxymoron.

Nothing physical can be infinite.

The only existence of infinity is in theoretical math.

Theoretical math is not physical.

Therefore, physical infinity does not exist.

Even in math, infinity is not actually represented, but only symbolically represented.

Infinity is a symbolic concept; an idea; an abstraction.

It has no representation in reality.

Real mathematicians know this.

"The infinite is nowhere to be found in reality. It neither exists in nature nor provides a legitimate basis for rational thought. The role that remains for the infinite is solely that of an idea."

Space in motion. Such as the current of a magnetic flux. I've posted a lot about that in the past.

No I don't care about one single poster on this public thread. And in particular useless people like yourself.

It's always indicative of how smart person is by the language that they use .
Childish insults seem to be about all you have - yawns

Your life has been a failure by your own admissions and continues to decline.

Have you considered surrendering your body for medical experiments ? I believe that's the only thing it is good for.

The truth may set you free but first it'll really piss you off.

I believe it's time for you to return to your useless posting, get typing everyone looks forward to seeing another 8000 entries from you.

Feed that massive ego - create your own thread. Call it 'bad shit crazy.'

Your fan club will respond to you!
Conversely Your Absence from this thread will be greatly appreciated.

I have a question for you.

Take two prople that survived to old age. One followed the expectations established for him by the current society, the Well Respected Man of that old song. The other bruised and battered and very experienced in the emotions of life. The uppers and the downers of it. Let's say they tasted a lot of it flavors.

Then they both die.

Which was the failure?

I see.

That makes the equation "infintesimally small" x 13.8 billion = Infinity

No, that makes no sense.

Try again.

"A" x 13.8 billion = Infinity; where "A" is average rate of expansion, 13.8 billion years is the elapsed time.

I have given you plenty of time to work on this.

Is there a problem?
