lol...and your response is a perfect example of how people reacted when it was first theorized and asteroid led to the demise of the dinosaur. And if a small tiny comet survived the sun's comet, that's proof your shallow mind can't comprehend that maybe, just maybe if it happened something larger and more solid might penetrate beyond the corona and do who knows what damage. But of course your the skeptic that pretends pigs can fly to prove you'll reject other possibilities based on actual evidence.
Well, that makes perfect sense - when pigs fly.

Honey, your hypocrisy is outstanding even considering the high standards set by your faith. When you stop abusing my name, my heritage and my ancestors then I will refrain for calling you names, until then remember one thing Ė PUBLIC THREAD.

Why are you so delusional. Although the various (40,000+) sects of christianity make up a little more than 30% of the total religiosity of the world that number is in decline to the extent that church leaders are putting aside their differences and getting together to attempt a marketing campaign in a vain attempt to stop the apathy of christinaity.

It is estimated that Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world.

As for none belief we are looking at somewhere between 11 and 18% of world population and said to be on the increase.

Or looked at another way, if all atheists and agnostics left the USA, it would lose 93% of the National Academy of Sciences but less than 1% of the prison population.

Conclusively. If those invisible lines exist, then the almighty God who is also invisible exist. Case closed!
Actually science does not believe the longitude and latitude lines exist, they know they are imaginary

And of course you yourself have (in a spark of intellectual brilliance on you part) just claimed them to be imaginary therefore by your own logic your god must likewise be imaginary.

How to shoot yourself in the foot but hey, just like your hypocrisy, it is something you excel at

Actually you're lying, because like him, you're conflating passing through the corona with a direct hit to the heart of the sun. But hey, don't let facts get in the way of your silly little rants.(shrug)
Yep I must be confused. How did I get that science did not think a comet could survive passing through the suns corona? Oh yea by what they say.

Scientists mystified how Comet Lovejoy survived 2 million degree K temperature pass through Sunís corona.

A small comet survived what astronomers figured would be a sure death when it danced uncomfortably close to the broiling Sun. Comet Lovejoy, which was only discovered a couple of weeks ago, was supposed to melt Thursday night when it came close to where temperatures hit several million degrees. They were then shocked when a bright spot emerged on the Sunís other side. Lovejoy lived.

Odd that the word "mystified" appears neither in this article (other than the title) nor in the related CBC article.

Of course, but they do exist, what about the date lines, where either gain or lose a day? Is that not a reality? Can you physically see those date lines?

Obsessed? Funny. You're that one obsessed with "the earth can do anything".
Please cite the ice age that occurred within this region and time-frame.
Try science sometime? lol...And you do? You're the one sponsoring the science of a desert that's 'supposedly' been free of water in places for 100,000 years. Yet you didn't read the science left out and excluded that certain glacial periods have affected this high desert area like other near by mountainous areas with glacial/snow bound runoff within your 100,000 year time line? You prove what you don't know. Nuff said.

The difference being we can detect longitudes, latitudes, equators, and meridians.
Dreaming again! But those lines are imaginary and do realistic things just like what the almighty creator are doing. Just admit the truth, budy.

They are conceptual ideas to aid humanity. They are not physical barriers, you are assuming that because people can think then your god must exist?

If wake up in the morning and think of a bacon sandwich for breakfast, does that automatically make the bacon (or bread) my god of the day?

Nope..

You can thank science for that. And thank science for your computer too, but you won't because you're a hypocrite.
Hypocrite? Who gave you the brain to think creatively, is it science? No! Just admit your errors and move on.

Perhaps you could have though of that before and saved us both the bother.

However you seem to be acknowledging that science learns by progress. Well done.

Yeah they use quotes like "astronomers figured it would be a sure death" and "was supposed to melt" and "none had ever survived" but you just focus on that one word of mystified.

I did. That's why I don't believe in talking donkeys and lizards like in the Bible.
Talking lizard or not. That does not change who God is and what he can do.
