Have any of the New Atheists toured [[Islam]]ic countries giving lectures in which they condemn [[Allah]], [[Muhammad]], Islam, or Muslims? Have any of them debated Muslims in Islamic countries? Have any of them been interviewed on Al Jazeera? Have any of them written entire books in which they condemn Allah, Muhammad, Islam, or Muslims? Have they ... (more)

True. But we have candidates. We just need data to test between them. ALL are quantum theories..
<quoted text>
This depends a bit on what you mean by 'understand'. We have incredibly good descriptions of both electricity and gravity as parts of predictive testable theories.
<quoted text>
The main problem we have with event horizons surrounds the question of quantum gravity. Once again, we have candidates, but need data to test them.
<quoted text>
More accurately, we have *found* dark matter and dark energy, but are trying to determine what they are made from. For dark matter, there are several good candidates, but once again, we need *data* from the particle physics crowd to test between them. Dark energy is another beast--we understand very little about it as yet.
That said, none of this directly impacts what Bob said (although the details of dark energy could do so).
<quoted text>
Mankind has nothing to do with it. There are two different settings where 'multiple universes' come up in modern physics: the first is the 'many worlds' interpretation of quantum mechanics, where the wave function of the universe can be *interpreted* as splitting into separate, branching universes at each quantum event. The second is in the context of a multiverse where different universes 'pinch off' from the main deSitter space via quantum fluctuations. Neither has anything to do specifically with mankind. The first has to do with quantum events and decoherence, while the second is more a description of how universes form.

..NO..We use electricity , we create and store it , even..But, we don't know why , certain materials make the electrons flow ...As, for gravity ..pffft , We can't even say ,are we being "pushed" or "pulled" ..???

I'm inclined to believe , "you" really don't think we know how or why the universe behaves as it does ...nor ...do "you" believe we have really plumbed any of its secrets ...

...Since , dumb "polymath" got us thinking about physics ..."stop the planet" ....I should say "not" ..!!..do know what kinetic energy is ..???

You are right of course , to subscribe to the belief that God "only" came to the Hebrews ..is folly at best ,hubris at worst ...

Other ancient cultures also had beliefs and practices that prove, God has been present throughout the ages ..

Or rather, it proves people have believed in god for a long time.

No we don't believe that, but you should. It is exactly what the buybull claims. Ask and ye shall receive. Anything you ask in his name .... no qualifiers... anything. It shall be done.

And we all know that is pure lie.

Read my post-- the whole post.
Quantum Mechanics proves beyond a doubt, that gods cannot exist in our present Universe.
So there is little point it believing what cannot possibly exist.
May as well believe in the Lucky Charms Leprechaun....

False. Your bible is FULL OF slave-language.
Jesus is the MASTER (you are the slave)
Jesus is the HUSBAND (you are the bride/property/slave)
Jesus is the ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY (you are nothing, less than dirt, lower than worms)
So you are lying-- as per your usual habit.
And if the poster is a female, she is even less than all that. Those are what men are considered to be by the myth-god.

Well , there "is" a qualifier , depending on which translation (ask in Jesus's name ; or ask in prayer )..If we ask according to His will ,it "shall" be done ..

Christians understand ; God answers "all" prayers ,sometimes with a "no" ..

Man ,"Reason Personified" you've been gone a long time ..( I've missed you )....What , was it "this" time jail or rehab ....?

What I am pointing out, and you seem to not get, is that what you are describing is exactly what one would expect to happen if there were no god to receive your prayer.

So, according to you...

God...no god...no difference.

...good point...But, when you are praying, for the answer to a theological question ...in this case..when you come across the answer ...you feel it ..

That would be nice. Pity there isn't one.

Hint the WHOLE bible is too ugly-- full of rape, incest, murder, genocide, more-rape, mass-murder, war, more genocide...

... and THAT just from it's GOD! The people in it are WORSE.

Lie. If your idiotic claim were TRUE? There would be NO BIBLE-READERS IN ANY ARMY, ANYWHERE.

Is this the case? Nope... so you are full of it.

People who have read the WHOLE BIBLE?

Are atheists-- or soon will be.

Clearly, you've only read about 10% or less...

Correct-- at least time in THIS universe.

There may well be OTHER universes, which each have their own time.

But Quantum Mechanics proves beyond a doubt, your god cannot have existed-- or else this universe would collapse entirely--due to your god's omniscience.
