Let us start with (YOUR) definition for the term "information"
This is a very reasonable request.
I gave you all sorts of examples of information. If you want to get technical then Chimney1 gave a very good response to this not unreasonable request.

So my question still stands: What sort of information do you want?

I could tell you why, and this is a fact, or at least no creationist has been able to show that it is wrong, all scientific evidence supports the theory of evolution and none supports creationism. And I am ready to define scientific evidence. A very important concept since science is evidence based, not "proof" based.

<quoted text>When did I say what I believe. I haven't made any such statement. So how is it you know what I believe. Oh, that is right. You assume and have absolute knowledge because of you belief system making you a superior person and better than those that disagree with you. I forgot.

In other words, you have nothing and haven't found anything to cut and paste.

Since you know what I believe and know with bothering to ask, why bother to ask me about time?
Nice post.......not! but we'll let it go for now dan.

Why ask you about time? Why because those that put all their faith in science usually don't know what they believe.

Do believe in the Big Bang?

Where according to dan did time come from?

Or you were convinced all that sciency stuff was evil on Sunday mornings?

But now we must answer this question, If creation is impossible, then why do words appear in these little boxes and how do they get from one box to another. I'm gonna have to think about this for awhile.:/
You believe that if God created the universe man would not be able to build the Internet?

Bawhahaha. That's a good one LMAO!!

<quoted text>no time, no cause and effect. No cause and effect, no need for a "place" for time to "come from", a "being" to "create" it or a "cause" to "start" it. Your reasoning is stuck on and in time.
Time had to be the first thing to exist in the universe. Therefore your no cause falls flat.

<quoted text>"Nothing can exist with out time."

Nothing you know of can anyway, but how do you know "nothing" can exist. And why would "nothing" need time to exist?

"Nothing can change with out time."

Bingo, nothing can happen that we can observe without an elapsed time counting it. But if time were frozen right now , for an instant does anything exist in the duration, within the instant of frozen time?

"Nothing can happen with out time."

Time was frozen for an instant, can time resume?
If it cannot , nothing will happen again, but does it still exist?
If time cannot resume after the instant, then nothing ever existed.

Q- Can "nothing" exist? Answer the questions The Almighty Tzar.

Can "nothing" exist? What is nothing? Can nothing begin?
Can nothing start?
Do you know of something that exist with out time?

Do you know of Time ever stopping?

Do you know if Time can or did start itself?

Time can be stopped, photons do it to exist.
Black holes do it with gravity.
"We" couldn't do it physically yet, but it happens.
That's where you are confused with the big bang,
to massless energy time has no meaning.

Now answer the questions.
Can nothing exist?
Can nothing start?
When ever did nothing exist?

Photons are always traveling the speed of light. Light(in a vacuum) is always traveling at the speed of light, neither takes stops for breaks or rest. Both have zero mass but neither stop nor stop time. So to say either stops time would create a paradox.

To say a black hole stops time is fiction. A black hole is globe or ball shaped. Anyone or anything that gets near a black hole ends up like a bug on a windshield. Whether a black hole's gravity field can alter time is theory. There is no real evidence that time stops in a black hole for all that enters it, is gone.

Actually, light is composed of photons. Photons from stars are made in the interior of those stars and spend quite a bit of time bouncing around the interior, being absorbed, and reemitted prior to exiting the surface of the star.

I agree light is made of photons. Maybe I got a little hasty with my answer. Just saying photons do not stop time for they never stop.

You should lay off the booze when you are posting. Your post makes no sense.

Why don't you take some time, to learn how to read and write.

<quoted text> Darkness or dark is not describing a state of nothing, it is a condition that either does not react or absorbs photons, that means it can be empty space, or matter that is dark.
Empty space is not completely empty, but can lack sufficient matter to reflect or react with light.
Sureee getting dark out here,I hope we see some ghosts.
