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.
It could be fiction it could be real. Who knows. But there are real satanic worshipers.

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?
Reversing the pull is the best way I can think to explain it, because the object under the effect will only go the same distance away from the target object as the combined gravity fields have effect, anything beyond that would produce a pull again. It's this reason it's being looked at as a new maglev alternative, then the sidewalls would be obsolete since the train would be unable to leave the track for the same reason it's hovering just above it.

What is Anti-Gravity?

All matter in the universe that we know has gravitationally positive mass. Mass acts as a gravitational charge which produced a gravitational field. All known gravitational fields are positive. If gravitationally NEGATVE fields exist, they could counteract the positive gravity we know. They would constitute “anti-gravity”.

What are the Implications of Having Anti-Gravity?

1. Anti-gravity could counteract the pull of gravity by the Earth on objects. We call this pull weight. Anti-gravity could make objects weightless.

2. A form of gravity is responsible for inertia. Inertia is the resistance of objects to be put into motion, or accelerated.

Newton’s Second Law tells how much force we need to cause motion. Anti-gravity could negate inertia.

3. A combination of positive and negative masses could be made to
move the two without applying an outside force. This is called
anti-gravity propulsion.

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.

Seriously, if there was a flood there should be physical evidence.

There is none.

If we could even begin to understand the creation we might use an analogy. I am a Christian and I believe Jesus did miracles by the power of God which created all things in heaven and earth. If we could consider that a miracle is an event which happens at once as in the water made into wine (John 2), we could see that the wine was real. How can the rational person come up with a reason or cause for the wine? Good wine is juice from grapes which is vintage of a plantation of grape vines. It does normally take time for wine to be made, but with God all things are possible, and he can make things exist and truly happen that are above mans reasoning.

Sometimes I will joke and say that "faith" is synonymous with "gullibility". Sadly it is for you.

There is no evidence for any of the miracles in the Bible. Why do you believe it? Is it just because it makes you feel good? If god exists I would assume he would want us to use the brain that we have. It is not perfect, but if works rather well at simple tasks and even simple tasks can ascertain whether something is true or false. When the Bible is tested it does not fare too well.

The earth surface is 70% covered with water that came from the breaking up of the fountains of the great deep.

Most of the oceans salt came from beneath the ocean floor, because river runoff decreases the average salinity and couldn't be the reason that the sodium chloride has occured in seawater.

...or maybe because salt does not evaporate along with water, billions of years of minor additions of salt in fresh water runoff has just accumulated to cause the salinity of the oceans, which has been steadily increasing over the earth's history.

If Santa is Satan, then Claus is Lucas.

In Greece the name Lucas comes from the patron saint of doctors, artists and creative's. In Latin Lucas means bringer of light and Lucas also has the same meaning in English.

Lucifer is also bringer of light!

Christmas is all about the devil? I knew there is something fishy. lol

Salt comes out of the seas too. Look at the various salt and anhydrite deposits that can be found around the world. Just like the water cycle, there is a salt cycle too.
