Really? It was a hypothesis, a pretend scenario for the sake of an argument and nothing more. And you took it seriously? You should feel really embarrassed for yourself, not me.

Sure i did, but certaqinly didn't expect from you anything other than the childish retort you just gave...

i gave very rational explanations for the things your little mind couldn't seem to grasp...

As I told you spend less time on topix and more time on Discovery and NG you will find that they are not whacked out made up BS.

Tick, Chimney, Sub, Dan, Aura, Mike F and anyone else. Pick one or more and run with it. Let's see what you got.

How Gravity Works. Saying you throw shyt up, it comes down again wonít work as an answer. Out of the four fundamental forces gravity is the weakest one. So how does it actually work?

How a Bicycle Works. Hint it is not the gyroscopic effect.

Why Ice Is Slippery? Humans as a species knew ice was slippery before we knew fire was hot, or even existed. So why is it slippery?

Now pick one or more and give a plausible tested scientific explanation of it/them on how/why. Donít be shy now. Who will be first to step up.

They take all hypothesis seriously. Well as long as science makes the hypothesis they take it seriously and literately.

maybe if you spent less time drooling in front of the boob tube, you would be able to tell that they are.

are you freakin serious? even the sasquatch hunters think you are insane to buy into this ridiculous crap!

how a bicycle works, you push the pedals around and that drives the chain which turns the wheels...

you do know the scientific theory for gravity, don't you? you can look it up. do you have a better explanation than that one?

Of course we "can" explain it. The problem is, all we have is a series of skulls showing the increasing brain size over about 3 million years. So our explanations are speculation.
But we do know that the apes that became hominids were subjected to some dramatic environmental changes and that in such a situation, its change or die. We can see what some of those changes were, and we can spend all day speculating about what mattered and what did not. We have many such explanations, some plausible, but hard to determine because the evidence is not likely to ever be found.
Still there is nothing magical about the theory. Just wonderful.
I took the following from a site as it said it better than I could but also stated my own thoughts concerning the issue.

http://www.allaboutscience.org/evolution-of-t...
As with other complex biological features, scientists explain the evolution of the human brain through natural selection....
Scientists explain the apparent change and diversity of most biological systems through naturalistic evolution. The generally accepted theory is that small, random changes in an organism sometimes provide an advantage....
The response used by scientists to explain the evolution of the human brain involves a "fast evolution" scheme.....
Scientists have experienced problems when applying the normal methods of evolution to the human brain. Paleontologists and neurologists have noted that there is little to no notable difference between the brains of modern humans and so-called Neanderthals, other than a slight change in size. Given the supposedly significant differences in intelligence, social structure, and physical features, this seems strange. Those studying this field admit as much. The coordination required between the brain and the body is another. The development of the human brain is one of the biggest unsolved mysteries for evolution....

I disagree that it can be explained. I agree what we examine can be explained in theory. But explaining why modern humans took off like a rocket shot off concerning the evolution of their thinking process, it remains an unknown with a lot of theories.

Are you really so afraid to research Discovery and NG? Both are very reputable names that science works with. Are you afraid what you might learn or what you might find out?

What? an asteroid/ meteor forcing the sun to move? Jupiter isn't big enough for that, even if it were a solid planet.
Jupiter's a gas planet. It would burn up before it hit the corona of the sun more than likely. In theory I was speaking of an metor (more than an asteroid which is ice and would melt) of a substantially large size that would penetrate to the interior of the sun. But as I stated it was a hypothetical theory not to be taken literal. I was making a hypothetical point of the earth.

I said give a plausible tested scientific answer. I could have gotten a better answer than what you gave from a kindergarten class. Evidently you have no clue and don't know what the gyroscopic effect is. Take some time, go read and come back and try again. You hopefully won't look so foolish next time.

I don't know what you believe and really what ever you do is your choice. Myself I believe in evolution, change over periods of time. I also believe God or a high form started life for I do not believe in abiogenesis. The evolutionists always say that abiogenesis has nothing to do with evolution but they step on their own asss showing that if you don't believe in evolution AND abiogenesis then you are just a creationist/creatard.

They hate any God in everyway and will do what it takes to rule one out. They cannot even except that while some people believe in evolution, they believe in God as well. In their minds that is not expectable. Either you swallow the abiogenesis with evolution or you don't matter.

I knew this would be over your little head. All you can do is repeat time come from a singularity. But yet still avoid the question of "Where did time come from? Keep in mind the universe was already there it was just compressed. So during this compression did time exist or did time exist before hand when the universe got compressed?

Hey tick here is another thinker for you. If there was a 1000 miles flat and an object was placed at the end of that flat that was big enough for you to see with your naked eye and it was light enough and clear enough out for you to see the object but also dim enough to illuminate the object with a beam of light. If at the exact same time you opened your eyes a beam of light was shined toward that object would you see the object before the light beam hit it or would the light beam hit the object before you see it?

i do know what the gyroscopic effect is, it has nothing to do with what makes a bicycle go. you asked for how a bicycle works and i gave you a clear description of just that. and yes, one that is scientifically tested...
