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.

You apparently are not that passionate about this energy thing you say exists, otherwise you would have no trouble answering simple questions.
I make it a habit to NOT read books about magic posing as reality I KNOW that if this soul thing was real, and part of our physical makeup that Neuroscience would have no trouble detecting it. There is NO evidence for a soul, NO verifiable support for this energy bullshit, only obscure books "New Age Authors." You know what New Age stands for? The same old unsupported shit dressed up in a new suit of cloths. As if putting the handle, New Age, somehow validates the still unsupported claims for soul and this wandering energy bullshit. And the really pathetic part is you don't even realize how totally bizarre you sound. Energy wandering around imbedding itself into certain individuals. How you get to be selected for this magical energy is unknown. But you better put in your order as soon as possible apparently there are so many Intelligent entities i the universe there is not enoughtenergy to go around.

No, it is NOT the vibration of space. It is the motion of the atoms *through* space in a cyclic fashion. There is a difference.

Simply wrong.
1. Space is not what is vibrating. Instead, the atoms are moving through space.
2. This vibration of individual molecules is NOT the main component of heat. The kinetic energy through space is.
<quoted text>
No, we found the tiny parts and then understand the larger wholes in terms of those tiny parts. No brick wall.
<quoted text>
The expansion is still going on. So the atoms were formed *during* the expansion.

Do you attempt to be coherent?

Why do you think the singularity is anything like what happens when we start processes *within* the universe?

Again, simply wrong. Heat is a large scale description based in statistical mechanics. It isn't a 'quantum carrier', whatever *that* is supposed to mean.
You are amazing. You tell me I am wrong and then say essentially the same thing.

Hey, Einstein, you have these cyclic thingies not vibrating space as they move through it, The space isn't vibrating as they go through. Hokay. Here, try this. Try walking through a corridor 2 foot wide with a 20 ton hanging block vibrating a foot and a half on either side. What space you had is periodically gone. Does the space take a lunch break?

Where do your moving particles get this extra energy, aka heat? Out of their lunchbox? A taco truck?

The motion, and thus disp[acement of space creates heat. It can be transferred via charge between linked molecules, or it produces light. Likewise these particles can be excited by direct ransfer to them, or by being struck by light. Not the particles, actually, but the charges holding together. There is nothing in the particles to produce heat by the particles themselves. It is the stressing of charges which interacts with space, vibrating it and passing that displacement along. That displaced space vibrates those charges like wind through an Aeolian harp. It stresses the charge fields the same as the air puts a load on those strings. That is where your quantum effects come from.

But your holy scriptures of modern physics won't describe it as such.

You "know" physics, but you don't understand it.

Internet TROLL Chickenboy12
Why do trolls do it?
I believe that most trolls are sad people, living their lonely lives vicariously through those they see as strong and successful.
Disrupting a stable newsgroup gives the illusion of power, just as for a few, stalking a strong person allows them to think they are strong, too.
For trolls, any response is 'recognition'; they are unable to distinguish between irritation and admiration; their ego grows directly in proportion to the response, regardless of the form or content of that response.
Trolls, rather surprisingly, dispute this, claiming that it's a game or joke; this merely confirms the diagnosis; how sad do you have to be to find such mind-numbingly trivial timewasting to be funny?
Remember that trolls are cowards; they'll usually post just enough to get an argument going, then sit back and count the responses (Yes, that's what they do!).
Trolls don't have friends. On the internet, because they interact with human beings, they can convince themselves that they are important, the centre of the universe - that, to them, is better than any friendship.
Don't forget, the troll thinks he is always right, and therefore better than other folk. In real life, exactly the opposite applies. the troll has no friends and virtually no interaction with other people.
If he's a teen (many are), then he lives in his bedroom, trolling, playing computer games with 'friends'(who he doesn't know at all), and joining roleplay sites, where - of course - he is a hero, or a powerful villain, who is respected in an inverse ratio to the respect he feels for himself.
If he's an adult, then he has serious social issues. He may work, where people think he's a weirdo, and avoid him, he may sponge off his parents or be 'looking for work', which means he blames everyone for his problems. Except himself.
Most people who are out of work are nothing like the stereotype; most want to work, and gain their self respect through work and being part of the world; but the troll IS the stereotype whining scrounger, to whom the world owes a living.
Almost every troll is male; I don't know why this is.
The troll has few social skills, and most have never had a girlfriend, many never will.
There's a clear pattern among trolls; they are much more likely to ignore posts known to be from women. And when they do respond to women, they are much more likely to be brief, abusive, condescending and patronising.
This is almost certainly more due to fear than misogyny - they just don't know any women. Except Mom. But their attitude rather reduces their chances of reproducing, which is probably a good thing.
A very nice gibberish gobbled word salad.

So what shall we do with your gibber gobbled nonsensical salad?

There’s very little need for the annotations of a boneheaded narcissist that thinks he is a genius.

I say it all goes into the sewer from whence it came.

Thats like saying "Eat shit, 20 trillion flies can't be wrong."
You're very good at making unsupported claims, some would actually call them lies. Now lets see if you are a bold faced liar or not. PRODUCE the documentation or any other pertinent evidence that more Atheists are Atheists because of government policing than by choice. I challenge you to prove to all of us that you are not a liar. I do believe you are a cowardly liar with absolutely no proof for your ridiculous claim.
Atheism IS coming to America, it has been here for some time now and is growing among young people.
The rise of atheism in America The number of disbelievers is growing, but they remain America's least trusted minority. Why? By The Week Staff | April 13, 2012
The National Atheist Organization's "Reason Rally" in March: 19 percent of the American public spurns organized religion in favor of skepticism about faith. Allison Shelley/Getty Images H
ow many atheists are there?
It depends on your definition of the term. Only between 1.5 and 4 percent of Americans admit to so-called "hard atheism," the conviction that no higher power exists. But a much larger share of the American public (19 percent) spurns organized religion in favor of a nondefined skepticism about faith. This group, sometimes collectively labeled the "Nones," is growing faster than any religious faith in the U.S. About two thirds of Nones say they are former believers; 24 percent are lapsed Catholics and 29 percent once identified with other Christian denominations. David Silverman, president of American Atheists, claims these Nones as members of his tribe. "If you don't have a belief in God, you're an atheist," he said. "It doesn't matter what you call yourself."

It is one method. And the process occurs on an even smaller scale. The charge and load. Right down into the nucleus itself. But that is because of the universe being a pressure, not innate properties of atomic particles or processes. Space is a medium, it therefore has compressive properties.

But be advised there were no electrons and atoms, etc when the BB event occurred. And it was very, very hot.

According to modern physics.

You never got back to me about that.

You have a very interesting way of looking at things. I don't wish to delve into the complexities of what your belief system may hold, but it seems that it may be even more out there than just the christian belief.

However, it is quite bold of you to bash atheists for giving their opinion, and then to label someone sub-human simply based on your opinion. It's name calling, and it's quite insulting. I am a human whether your opinion is different from mine or not.
