That's the same as discussed yesterday.
No universe shattering intelligences found yet, even considering drilling on Mars.
They mst have offloaded some bugs, so who knows.
i watched the building of a space garbage truck.
What a waste. ;p)
to haul garbage up to space or to gather space garbage. it would be great to get rid of our low orbit debris.

if we could haul garbage up, it would be nice way to get rid of our nuclear waste, but the launch needs to be 100% assured, with nothing is...(unless of course we pray that it works as planned....oh wait, even god isn't perfect...hmmmm)

Is this not foolish, and we all know that the universe came into form, this is just ignorance on the part of atheist, because we definitely have scientist that believes in the existence of God.

Newton's Laws of Gravity have been "proven" not to work. Guess what? We still use them. They work fine for the vast majority of the time. We did not use Einstein's theories of gravity when we went to the Moon and back. We used Newton.

Heck most of the time we don't even use Newton when we work gravitational problems. Most of the time we go further back and use gravitational theories that existed before there were proper the concept of Laws or theories. Do you know whose gravity we use most of the time?
You can continue to use an equation
However a scientific theory must not fail or else it needs to be modified or corrected. Straight from the scientific pages.

The Quran was writen during the live of prophet Muhamad on rocks,skin papyrus,animal bones...by his companions, then after the end of revelation (death of prophet Muhamad), the texts were gathered in one book By Osman,on his greatest companion ,and the this original book exist even today.Its not a ~religious movement~ that force people to believe, and religion is not a movement but a practice, pure acts of adoration to the creator and no one else, the belief is not enough, you have show proove your belief through actions, thats the meaning of religion;and stop having preconception about things you dont know, dont judge a religion by the action of people,there too many wrong religions,but make your own research about the message(book)of the religion, and you are free to believe or disbelive
existance of this immense univers is not made unpurposly,we are not on this earth for no reason man!that what manking is trying to understand since the begening of his existance,trough sciences,astronomy...
there were scratched little memos that were not in order or not complete. why not? why is it all prophets have to be discovered after they die and are needed by some religious/political( they have all been both, you know...yes, you need to know that)movement?

i obviously have researched this.

freethinkers usually know more about the religions than people who claim to be followers fo that religion do...why is that? because they are cults, and cults are destroyed by knowledge.

when the countries that are predominantly mulim now become developeing nations and their peoples are educated, the number of nonbelievers will grow in accordance with their education, as has happened with all of the cults.

happy culting!

when we find out how to correct the gravity model we will. that in no way means it has failed completely.

again, an understanding of how the use of theories works is needed before you talk about this subject.

From the smallest particles to the formation of galaxies, star clusters etc.

It's the working relationship of the Universe as a whole, that I see.

You just see dumb stuff.

to the station to bring, fill up and then get lost.
A space accident waiting to happen.
So no ;/
That's the mechanical bound-to-go-wrong-law.(What's the name again? Or it takes ten times as long.... Nah.)
We could sent Charles along to counteract.
That would be his peter-principle achievement.
(Same law but then for people)

A japanese theme went up K2 and Everest to gather oxegene tanks and other mess.
Maybe we can send them up. Take a gigantic magnet along.
Oh and tell them not to bring the copy of the oldest calculation back.
22.000 y.o. found in Africa.
That's still an entire continent that is unexplored.

that is incorrect. there is no center if there is no space time. why do insist on continuing to prove you do not know what you are talking about?

just man up and admit you were wrong. GR predicted singularities. htey were unknown until then and the prediction was correct. they are there.

good to know.
All scientific theories are perfect!
see how that works?
You were implying that a "perfect" Universe would be equally balanced in all things. Life could and would not exist under these condition.

But a fluctuating Universe allows for diversity, interaction and change...So your picture of a perfect Universe is faulty in concept.

<quoted text>we have ways of determining if videos have been faked. people try it all the time with "UFO videos and they are always busted. do you have a point?
Of course some are fake. Just like fake fossils manufactured in China.

People tried to replicate the 'real' crop circles. It turns out the fake ones were not as elaborate and when used a device they were still unable to accurately replicate the microwave effect on the crops. Also, the use of these devices would be a loud set-up because it needs to be plugged in to a generator for power and so far none has been caught to use them until they tried to figure out how real crop circles were made.

You are really sick, psychologically.
So, from your premise, all the pastor, prophets, etc, are psychologically retarded?
As i said earlier, you are a sick fellow.

Atheists? Where?
I was just going to as if you brought a guitar along, so we could have an eucomenical (The tranlator is daft. Learn latin! This word takes hours going through the spelling corrector, that only works when you get it right! Though we all know what it says!) singsong.

yes but tose scientist know how to distinguish between believe and science.
If they don't they just end up with bad science.
