Thanks for the link, it was informative and enlightening. What I found interesting were the comments about the theory in the article. No one questioned the physics or math behind the Temple Smoller theory, the science per se, yet they were uncomfortable with it, why? Quote from the article.".. to say such an idea unnerves many modern cosmologists would be an understatement". Or take this quote, that the theory was," philosophically disconcerting" The same denial and philosophical angst is all through this thread from the evo puddle gooist crowd.
Really? That must be why you run away every time you're faced with inconvenient reality then.(shrug)

Personally I take tons of vitamin c I don't get sick very often but when I do need a new inhaler I go to the doc. I really don't get why you asked I'm a Christian not a moron. I believe God gives us all a talent some people are doctors some cops and on and on. As a matter of fact Luke was a doctor and wrote part of the bible.

Do you really want God to judge you now? Not the way man would but by the measure a perfect God would judge. I don't even want that and I've been a Christian for 15 years.
But if humans cannot judge, then why did your god "allow" courts to be developed at all? If your god's laws are so perfect, why did they change? How did humanity survive so long without them? Why don't you follow those laws to the letter, if they're so perfect?

Large numbers, you'll make their heads explode and then we'll have to clean it up again.

That is called Pascal's wager and has been shown to be wrong long ago.

You are in effect saying that your god is an idiot.

Which man made god do you think that we should believe in?

You admitted that large numbers would make their heads explode and yet you expect them to understand logic?

Very naughty of you.

My prediction?

Clean up in aisle 4!!!!

Take this for instance.. Earth at the centre of the universe and no need for the mystery of dark energy that is meant to account for 96% of the matter of the universe and you know nothing about.
To say that such an idea unnerves many modern cosmologists would be an understatement. Modern cosmology takes as an article of faith that the Earth is nothing special. It’s called the Copernican Principle, named after Copernicus who concluded that the Sun and not the Earth was the center of our solar system. In modern science, Earth and the area around it is not allowed to be special or “favored” in any way compared to the rest of space — and it is certainly not allowed to be the center of the universe.
But Temple & Smoller’s theory suggests just such a thought.
Their shockwave has some things in its favor and some not so much so. For the former, the Earth-centered shockwave theory would also explain another phenomenon: the fact that Earth seems to be sitting in an odd “bubble of underdensity”— a region of the universe that doesn’t have much in it.
http://wallacegsmith.wordpress.com/2010/10/22...
The theory that Temple Smoller advocate is a stunning one that has immense implications for cosmology , science and mans place in the universe since earth being the center of the universe couldn't be accidental. Its strange that this theory isn't widely known .It's similar to the theories about the universes origin, creationists stated the universe had a beginning while science said it must be eternal. When the evidence came to light that it indeed had a beginning science proved the creationists right. Wouldn't it be ironic indeed if science has proved that the earth is the center of the universe?

No, that's an assertion. Now you have more work, now you have to not only prove your god exists, but that these words, written by human hands and human brains, are what this god actually says. That's a lot of evidence you need.

Uh....since we cannot detect the EDGES of the universe, there is no way we can calculate the CENTER of the universe.

You will, of course, reply that science has shown that (most) all other galaxies are moving away from us. This is true,*BUT*(most)all other galaxies are moving away FROM EACH OTHER as well. So in that regard, EVERY galaxy could say THEY are the center of the Universe.

Or do you have a link that says different?

Actually, they sort of did calculate it based on the movements, but there's a huge chance they're wrong. There's still the possibility that these expansions happen all over the place and ours is just a tiny part of the universe. I don't recall the details, not my area of interest. lol

Your right. We should all bow down to Brahma, the one true god.

Or was that Aten?

Facts? You mean you have empirical evidence of all of this? I would be glad to see it. I have been taking God on faith up till now. But if you have proof.

So fine dont believe and dont live a good life. Take the risk,it is your eternal soul at risk. I mean being a good Christian is so easy and feels so right and good. Tell me why take the risk.

Being a good Buddhist is a bit harder, but it feels so right and good too. Why risk potential enlightenment for a johnny-come-lately religion like Christianity?

FYI
Temple-Smoller was refuted last year with the SMC data.
