That was a list of reference material NOT hosted on Wiki. Perhaps you should look first before sticking your foot in your mouth.
Is that a Julian Aussange quote?

That guy's really kind of scarey....poor Aussie's.

Julian Assange, the internationally wanted Wikileaks founder, plans to start a “WikiLeaks party” and run for the senate in Australia’s 2013 election, the country’s news Web site The Age is reporting:

Assange wouldn’t be the first person to run for public office from behind bars. For example, American union leader Eugene Debs won 3.4 percent of the vote in the 1920 presidential election while in jail on sedition charges in Atlanta.

Of the people you referred to one proven fake is Hutchinson. But anyone who makes a claim that cannot be reproduced can safely be assumed to be a fraud.
Ya there is s documentary that says Hutchinson is fake. But that's because they figured a way to copy his invention and thought that's how it was made.

Roller coasters uses magnets

I don't need to say the earth was put back like it was before the flood. I believe the earth was way way different before the flood. I believe humans lived an average life-span of 700 years-ish. andI believe It hadnever rained at all before the flood. Ibelieve plants grew from dew. I believe we have enough animals the way it is with the ones that survived the flood on Noah's ark...and didn't go extinct from eing hunted by great hunters shortly there after. that didn't take hours. It just took God to make history. He alsoleft a rainbow.That's why we don't mind retelling the story. It means mercy for humans..
But it wasn't. Why would you think that?

Sedimentary rocks took hundreds of millions of years to be deposited, that puts them well before the time of the flood. All of the mountain ranges in the world, even the youngest ones, are millions of years old. Some, the Appalachians for example, are hundreds of millions of years old.

So where is the evidence of the flood?

The rainbow existed before the flood. It is caused by simple refraction. If you don't know that then we are going to be in big trouble here.

Why do you think inventors patent their work? So people can steal it from them? With your logic, I can say that the people who invented nukes are fraud. It's TOP SECRET!

Nope, all of those pass the repeatability tests. In fact once you patent something anyone can look up to see how it works. Patents are public records. They stop other people from using your designs.

I'm pretty sure it usually rains before you see a rainbow. There's even rain in the word rainbow.wow. maybe it never rained before the flood. Maybe taking millions of years to make a fossi lis another fact that Evolutionist will have to turn into some other fact by ....hm magic.

Once again, there was no flood. How would plants have grown without rain? It is not that it takes millions of years to create a fossil, it is that it would have taken hundreds of millions of years to deposit all of the sediments. Sedimentary rocks show that they were deposited in specific environments. Most of them with deposit rates far lower than an inch per year. Explain over a mile of sediments that deposited that slowly with a flood that lasted only one year.

Fossils can be millions of years old, that is a fact. But it does not occur by magic. It requires the function of physcal and chemical principles and lots of time to get a fossil. No magic.

You do a lot of speculating which is a good thing, but taking this speculation as fact and using it to make erroneous conclusions doesn't help you or anyone else.

Rainbows can occur without rain, but during or after a rain is when they are usually observed.

Why worry about the devil when we have plenty of people ready and willing to do such evil that would scare Lucifer into catatonia. The devil is just a fiction for Christians to blame their own evil and selfish acts on.

No, I am pretty sure I have only invoked the ire of those that need some external reason for that which they don't understand.

heavy moisture from the ground helps plants to grow. plants grow by waters when rainis rare. Water has always existed since creation.

I'm no physicist, but if gravity is the pull on a body by every other body, then would antigravity be the push on a body by every other body or would it be a cessation of the pull?

Actually, it would be the reversing of the pull, so not even a push. Things are difficult for me to explain, so I won't try. They are working on a new maglev system that will not require as much material to produce using the concept.

Since it was brought up on here, I began to wonder what the opposite of gravity or anti-gravity would be. So, reversing the pull?

Here is something that came to mind remembering something from back in high school. If a person is standing on the slope of a mountain, the pull of gravity is not only to the center of the Earth but to the mountain as well. The Earth having the stronger pull of course. Anti-gravity would then be the release of the pull from both directions in this case. But just as we don't get pulled down to the center of the Earth or the center of a mountain, anti-gravity wouldn't necessarily shoot us out into space. Or would it?
