Oh Rose ... they think that since there is 'criticism of christians' there must be a Satan. That is what constitutes 'evidence' for them. All the beauty and wonder and magnificent ... blah, blah, blah ... proof extraordinaire of wonderful Creator Beings! Oops, I mean 'being'(singular)... this individual is too far gone.

The fake-agnostic creationist liar has already been judged. Nothing to see here.

You are a world-reknowned liar.
Without a screen capture?(and even with one-- they can be faked)
You are simply lying.
But your narcissism is also legendary-- nearly as large as your willingness to sleep with anyone--anyone at all.
So it's hardly surprising, given your massively bloated ego (the **only** thing bigger than your azz) that you'd assume they were all here to read ...
... your crap.
As if.
I see you are still making excuses for not Googling that article yourself. What a flaming loser you are, Bob.

Odd they didn't define 'rainbow' as an optical illusion ... just a few lines down from your stunning 'illusion' definition in that bizarre link. Sunlight, striking water droplets is going to produce a 'rainbow'(split the light into it's component colors) whether there is anybody there to observe it or not. Rainbows are an Optical Atmospheric Phenomenon ... quite real, frequently observed and easily reproducible. The only illusion involved is trying to say that they are a promise from our Creator Being not to drown us all again.
Ahem...read the captioning just under the photo. Are you dyslexic or something?

I suspect you guys are having trouble with the definition of "illusion", whether optical, or not.

Bob's the flaming tard who refuses to admit that the science backs me up by refusing to read (or "claiming" to have not read it) the article based on the possibility that it's been tampered with when he knows he can get this same info from any university in America. But then he's famous for being the the Duke of Disinguousity, denying any evidence that he may be wrong and I am right.

He's a bitter, jeuvenile little prick who is only being hateful to Lil because "I" like him. He used to show his comments respect until he decided that anybody I find attractive must be hated on. What a petty loser he, and you, are.

Quit trying to be "sciency". You do not know how, for one thing.

And you are just a blithering idiot, for another.

Nope. Another optical phenomenon. I'll spare the panel the details. The 'mirage' is really there ... somewhere, just not where it appears to be. It's different from an 'illusion' that's why they call them different words. Duh.
A mirage is a reflection of something that exists but it isn't really "there" where you "think" you see it. Similarly, but not quite the same, your image in a mirror is an illusion, "you" are not THERE, in or ON the mirror...AND you are seeing is not a perfect *mirror image* either, in that you are reflected opposite of yourself, left to right, but not *up and down* or, rather, upside-down. And ferget about the "front to back" aspect of your mirror illusion. Illusion, optical illusion, it's all the same. Read the definition. Now try and determine how much of reality is really real.

Hmmmmm ... what a revealing statement! Not about you exactly (although your ego is showing) but about the perversity of the 60 some odd people who must follow you around in pursuit of some kind of sick entertainment. What kind of a person even keeps track of how many people are 'observing' them at any given instant? Weird. But, uh ... keep sharpening those "reflexes" ... LOL.
I don't actively "keep track" of the numbers, they simply show at the top of the page every time I hit a new page. They're hard to miss.

Keep trying to insult me, I know you think it somehow validates your presence here.

I guess they now call rainbow optical illusions - I have never seen these terms used together - but ok.
Here's the deal - you are mean for the sake of being mean. You are a bully - what the h3ll ever happened to you to make you think that your behavior is even remotely acceptable. You arrogance does not help your cause.
You ever want to talk real Physics like Quantum Entanglement, Particle Physics, Higg's Boson or what's going on at the Large Hadron Collider I'm game.
And no I have never read any post of yours besides this thread - but if this is how you write I think I'll pass.
Don't EVEN start with the bully bullshyt. These guys did nothing but verbally abuse me from Day 1, just like they do anybody who doesn't totally mirror their own, personal ideology. I was civil in the face of their abuse for a long time and now they play the victim when I dish it back at them. You're all a bunch of wussified hypocrites.
