No. It is not anyone's reality but yours and a few thousand third graders. Most of them should figure out time zones and the IDL in a week or two. It's sadly apparent that some never will.

No, it was a completely stupid comment by you. Days are neither gained nor lost. Only the CALENDAR day is adjusted.

"Every direction proves that possibility" is a meaningless and empty

The time zones are nothing more than conventions to sync human activities with the solar terminator. You don't gain or lose any time by crossing them. They are not science or magic, they are human artifices - like the doctrines based on the Bible. Just because you can point at a line on a map or a Book on a shelf doesn't make it "real".

You're confusing how to use a calander with time gained or lost. Two completely different concepts. As Mike stated, you cannot gain or lose time. That would be time travel, and however neat that would be, it's not yet a possibility. The IDL was created to balance out the international time zones. So if you travel around the world, you are gaining one additional hour for each time zone you pass, accumulating 24 additional hours in comparison to your watch, but you lose these 24 hours as soon as you cross the IDL, bringing the actual time and day to what your watch reads.(Of course this is the opposite if you travel clockwise). No time gained, non lost. It's a pretty basic concept really, and no, it wasn't created by God.

As I've stated earlier Charles, I'm not arguing if there is a God or
not. I do however have trouble with the concept that this God has the
responsibility of micro-managing every living being on this planet, let
alone the rest of the potential life forms in the universe.
My own personal belief is that there is a higher force within the
universe, and this to me is a form of God. Not the big dude with flowing
white hair (however cool that would be) rather a force that ties
everything together. I believe that it was this force that was
resposnsible for the fact that evolution exists, from the BB to present.
So basically I am not trying to prove you wrong, I'm just pointing out
flaws in your very stubborn way of thinking.
Likewise. There are also flaws in your ways of thinking. It goes both ways. But that again has nothing to do with the existence of God. He exist.

It was a perfectly reasonable answer, you moron. You asked "But those planet s can not sustain lives, yes or no?". We haven't been there in person and only limited exploration by probes. So let me rephrase my answer for the incorrigibly stupid:

We don't f**king know yet!

Nope, you are completely average or more likely below average and so you need to make believe that your made up god made you special in order to give you any sense of self worth because you have nothing else.

I am sure I have asked you this before but you have never responded, do you suffer from the dunning kruger effect?
Charles Idemi wrote:
<quoted text> From your premise, all scientist are atheist. Is that statement correct?
Say what? How can you get from your misunderstanding of science to all scientist are atheist? That is one hell of a leap of stupidity you got there.

Actually there are no figures for ALL scientists but the National Academy of Sciences in the US did a survey in 1993 that resulted in showing 93% of NAS members are either atheists or agnostics

Which leaves us the fact that if all atheists and agnostics were expelled from the USA, it would lose 93% of the National Academy of Sciences but less than 1% of the prison population.

<quoted text> Back again to my question, are all scientist atheist?
Yes, like i said, science is a complements of God's work, why? Science can not really answer all man's pressing problems, they can only remedy that.
Back again to my reply … Oh fook it, I am not repeating myself because you are too stupid top comprehend.

Science can answer what is currently capable of being answered by science, tomorrow science will be able to answer a bit more and the following day a bit more. That is called progress and is down to human ingenuity and hard work, nothing to do with any goddidit by magic dream of bronze age goat herders and escaped slaves.

This of course does not mean that science cannot currently answer EVERYTHING so it’s ok to guess on the basis of no observation and no evidence whatsoever.

Here is an ultimate answer that will totally stump you - The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything is …

… wait for it …

there is ample evidence that there is no God:

- The fact that 'God' never makes an appearance, anywhere, ever.

- The fact that believers differ in their opinion of what God is and who He serves (Muslims, Jews and Christians are all Abrahamic faiths and yet they cannot agree on God)

- The fact that the story of God, His son and their message is all conjecture written in a book 2000 years ago. I must assume that you belive in Minotaurs, Medusa, Unicorns and Dragons as they are all characters in books written long before the bible.

- I must also assume that you believe in Hindu deities with 6 arms, elephants heads and monkey faces for these too were written in holy scriptures as far back as 5,000 years ago and are believed by a 1 billion Hindus worldwide.

There is no evidence of God! so it is absurd to respond by saying there is no evidence to disprove God!
