Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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. Full Story

Yh, it's creepy!! I just laugh at films like chainsaw and jason, but that one got me!! I had to sleep with the light on for a few weeks, that's how scared i was!! And that song just freaks me out now!!

There's room in that jumper for two...

I wouldn't watch Time Team myself but I still respect Professor Mick Aston. He's very intelligent, a great communicator and you'll see him credited on lots of historical programmes.

This is not even true. Even in a uniform medium, the speed of light will depend on the frequency.

[QUOTE]In "unumiform mediums", it is not constant.
In non-uniform media, the speed can also depend on direction.

Totally irrelevant, knucklehead. That isn't the cause, anyhow.
How can you have a strictly material universe, whcih you belief is the sole source of your intelligence and existence, and have "virtual particles" floating in and out of it? To you it would likely makes sense.
Virtual particle are material particles.

I wasn't referring to "posts", Hukt. I was referring to your ONE post.
The one that started with: "Light's speed is constant.".
As I said, that very first line was in error, so why bother with the rest?
You might as well have started with "Oxygen us bad for you.".
I would've ignored the rest of that post, too...
And you would have been wrong to do so. The oxygen molecule *is* bad for you in many ways. It contributes greatly to many of the issues of old age.

Light travels though unoccupied space at 1c (empty space; a vacuum).
Light *only* travels through unoccupied space, and *always* at 1c.
Don't stop reading, RR.
When a photon encounters a particle of matter, it gets absorbed by the particle.
Shortly thereafter, a new photon gets emitted from the particle.
Actually, this isn't quite right. The crucial aspect isn't the delay in the re-emission. It is the *phase shift* between the absorbed photon and the meitted one. In most media, the phase shift depends on the frequency. It turns out that a phase shift is completely equivalent to saying the velocity is different. This is why in anomalous dispersion we get 'speeds' of photons being faster than light in a vaccum. The phase shift is opposite the usual one, so instead of being equivalent to a slower speed, we get a shift equivalent to a faster speed.

In this view, it actually happens that light *always* moves at c, but phase shifts make it *appear* that it moves fasyer or slower.

It encounters a field in that empty space passing through the molecules. That is what does the absorbing and re emitting. And not in the same direction.
Fields exist in outer space, too. Disrupt part and you encounter resistance. It isn't as tight as within a molecule, but it is there.
The problem with this view is that the basic equations for E&M are linear. That means, in practice, that light moving one direction doesn't affect light in the same location but moving in another direction. It also means that light moving thorugh a filed is not affected by that field.

My girlfriend at the time was in physics also and we attempted to count the number of basic physics mistakes in that 'movie'. We lost count after about 5 minuites. Everything was misinterpreted, even what the experts were saying.

That is very difficult to believe. Particle or wave.

Feel the sunlight on your skin? If they don't bump heads or disrupt each other, then you are talking circuitry in a big way, meaning there is a path back to the originating point. Otherwise, you have to have a scatter.

I honestly hope i do!!

I hate it when i get told i'm racist or i'm this and that. Everyone in the world judges people and just coz i say it how it is, i'm the bad one? They're just hypocrites!!

Imagine if a person walked into the room and they smelt so bad, everyone would be thinking it but just coz i say to the person, "excuse me, u smell really bad, could u please do something about it!" i become the mean one??? THEM HYPOCRITES, MAN!!!!

And i can't believe that most Americans think they were born with wealth, it's just as stupid as some of the stupid scientific theories! How can we be evolving if we got so many thick people in the world, somethings defo fishy!!

I'm tired of sugar-coating sh*t, people have got to get real!!

Poor Topix atheists.

They are under the impression that discovery of how something works on the physical level negates the possibility it is part of a larger mechanism.

It increases your awareness of how things are put together, or created, but it certainly doesn't prove it was not intelligently designed. What we call Creation is not necessarily everything is a robot constantly under direction, although that may be the reality, but it may be nothing but a structure where things can run kind of wild. Like getting in a Dodge'm car rink. You may turn the wheel and push the pedal, but the ride was designed.
