<quoted text>no, no, no...
you compared the big bang to stars exploding and fusion is stars. i can copy and paste the post if you want.
i clearly pointed out these phenomenom have nothing to do with the expansion of the universe.
perhaps if you want to talk about physics, you should have at least a third grade level understanding of them...
No you said, "who said anything about explosion"

You're a LIAR. You take credit for other people's explanation and you do it all the time. You clearly stated that there was no explosion in the time of big bang.

The reason why I disagreed with that is because in the early stages of big bang when hydrogen was formed, it converted to other heavier elements by fusion.

Do you know how this happened in the sun before planets existed?

there was no explosion.

hydrogen only formed into heavier elements when the first stars were formed which was not early after the expansion of the big bang...

not at all. it was you that brought the explosion of stars and nuclear fusion into a discussion where they do not belong...

Sub, these are not MY numbers these number are from the CIA (central intelligent agency) and by Encyclopedia Britannica and Pew Research Center.
There is nothing wrong with these numbers other then they deflate your ego.
2%. That's it, that's all the atheist can claim out of the whole worlds population 2%.
I seriously doubt if those figures are from the "CIA". That is not the sort of intelligence that they gather. And your figures are way off. A more recent, more thorough, and more accurate poll puts the U.S. rate of atheism at 5% and the Global percentage at 13%:

It's the get a life crowd (atheist) vs has life after life crowed.
IMO, well put and brilliant. Understand, when I make my statements, if you were to honestly look around. Atheist do overwhelmingly out post the Political Junkie. I think all could agree that group does need to get a life. Combining being atheist and a political junkie. That is just a total misfit. And I know Atheist that do agree with that.

Explain the term "expansion of big bang."

What I'm trying to explain is how early forms of gases created other forms of matter. Without any type of "reaction" it would not create other elements. Please explain how heavier elements were formed if there were not any type of explosion? Hydrogen is highly reactive element, FYI.

<quoted text>how is paganism not religious?
most people that say they are not religious mean they do not participate in any organized religious cult, but their ideas of their god are taken directly from one of those cults.
examples of this abound on these pages in people like almighty tzar...they claim to not belong to a religious cult, yet they spew the cult rhetoric and the bible to no end...
I have read in dictionaries that would give you four different definitions of Pagan that comes right out and say not belonging to a religion. Your dictionary might say a group of believers that excludes the following religions. Form there post a few more popular religions. In some chats the question comes when do Wiccans leave paganism?

not well put. there is absolutely not one teensy shred of evidence of any life after death. not one shred of evidence to support the concept of a soul or spirit. just religious cults preying on many peoples' greatest fear to gather them into their cult...

You hardly know the facts. You just demonstrated your lack of understanding by twisting your own words.

I did not. You assumed the word "explosion" was about some type of fission or fusion and that is what I responded to, until someone else explained another meaning of it. I however, just trying to explanation both definitions. comprende?

Does Evolution contradict the Bible?
Is it possible to believe in evolution and still be a Christian? If being a Christian means believing that the Bible is the authentic, trustworthy Word of God and that Christ is our Creator and Savior, the answer is “No.” One cannot believe these things and also believe in evolution as the explanation for the origin of life on our earth as we know it.
But no one believes all of the Bible. Not even you.

So realizing that fairy tales are not true should not keep you from being a Christian. In fact worldwide most Christians do accept the theory of evolution.

What parts of the Bible don't you believe in?

the expansion of everything in our universe from the original singularity.

heavier elements were formed in stars via nuclear fusion, as i clearly stated previously in very simple, easy to understand language.

you seem to have an inability to read simple, easy to understand language.

SETI is privately funded. NO government funding whatsoever.
For mankind even to ASK a question re: "Is there anybody out there?", and the capacity to act on that initiative is beyond your simple understanding.
Sorry for you.
"Once SETI has......" Listen Kong, the intelligence humans seek to contact dont use or want to understand primitive technology...if you could call it technology. So Dong, sending primitive radio waves to intercept.......a ghost ...where is the logic dong? Humans are convinced that an highly advanced race would want to contact them......dont think so kong.Its just better that the primitive human animal take the Bible story an stick to it like glue.....clueless and primitive....nice. Trust me Dong, they want nothing to do with human anything. Wait, they study and munipulate the human race.....contact....the ghost in your dreams Gong.
