You are both wrong. I have it on good authority that it is 1:48 AM.

Germany is not English but German.
<quoted text> I agree!
The founding of The United Ststes and it's constitution was an act of divine providence. The founding fathers who were the framers of the constituion were from England. The English have kept the Christian faith for many hundreds of years. The supreme law of the the land still stands as a testament to their wisdom and fortitude and God has richly blessed their efforts to bestow freedom on the people of this great land. Yes the English language was brought here from England and it is also the language most people use to freely communicate with here on the world wide web. Bless you my Christian brother!

Oh yes that makes sense. I know East Coast is 6-7 hours behind us (depends on Daylight Savings)

That, quickly!

I still don't grok your angle Charles....unless you think you can torment people into slipping up and saying something Freudian about their fear of death. You might as well be annoying a stray cat when you do that with me. I'll just get angry or I'll just walk on by and ignore the silly posturing.

If there's a Christian God, he created a lot of people that Christianity disposes of rather than try to convert. It usually gets ugly from here.

Mathematics is more of a science than a language or Art.

<quoted text> And so?
You're reading my mind! Forget about degree definitions!

The Theory of Evolution is not a question of credentials. Applied math is only as good as the logic behind its application.

If you're trying to be an advocate for right-brain thinking, I won't be impressed. I'm already right-brain dominant and I don't like seeing people use their right-brain only in the moments where they want to get their own way.

That's strike two, against the Christian god for putting me in a world where selfish behavior masquerades as piety. Strike one was, of course, for not clearly finding dog pack mentality morally inexcusable.

I predict that strike three will entail some sort of rationalization for harassing the vulnerable in the name of God. Is there some Indian reservation somewhere that you want to kick all of the heathens out of so you can exploit the resources?

Fundamentalists are really SICK people.

Ummm nope! Not even close!
Wikipedia :
"people in the United States were most sure of the existence of God or a higher power (2% atheist, 4% agnostic)"
Doesn't look like 20% to anyone that can read! LOL idiot!
You got 2% confused with 20%
Maths not your strong suit is it?
What are you good at (other then lying)?
Anything? Anything at all?
Math ain't your strong suit either. Aren't all evolutionists just atheist Commies? And now here you are telling us that the atheists make up 2 percent of the population. Oh, and they also own the scientific community, the Government, the public schools AND the courts.

Anyway, isn't this supposed to be a science thread? You suck at that so I guess that's why you're babbling on about this irrelevant philosophical tangent.(shrug)

None of those laws could have come into being with out math, what a fool.
With out math there would be no science.
Moron.
And the funny part is I gave an example of a scientific experiment that didn't even need to use math. So either you're dumb or just plain lying (again). Your choice, I don't care.

Math is a language, not a science.
