<quoted text>Yes, all is well here on my planet. It has been awhile since we conversed, I hope that all is well with your world too. I too am enjoying NightSerf's responses. I am completely bereft of any form of patience for that fool who has "destroyed atheism" without so much as a single sign anywhere of there being any difference at all. So I am more than content to simply watch. When I turned 50 years old, I decided that life is far too short to engage for long, such idiocy. Once the fun plays out, I'm through.
I could complain a bit about my world, but overall it's good.:)

The thing that strikes me when I read 'oni's' posts is how bereft they are of any actual substance. It's like listening to a preacher trying to explain what a certain confusing biblical passage means. He drones on and on and on using large, uncommon words and long winded sentences designed to make his target feel like they are too stupid to really understand... when in reality the preacher has actually said and explained nothing at all.

I was on the receiving end of such 'explanations' in my youth. It was one of the driving forces in my realizing how much of a farce religion really is.

TerryL & Co.,
Tell me, as fully endowed with mind as you can possibly boast of, can the collectivity of your minds compare with the mind the directs the ever punctual and ever unfailing planetary appointments around the sun? And their satellites too are never found wanting in their revolutionary chores either.
Tell me, the so-called mindless universe, if it could show such constancy in its wonts and ways, which mortals would wager that the universal hosts are of less mind than the poor, insignificant, ephemeral, earth-bound humans?

jedi nonce just makes up rubbish as it goes along. No proof. No peer review. No worth.

Physics =/= magic. The planets, stars, etc. are where they are because of the interaction of mass, force and gravity, not because some super-intelligent being is holding them in place.

It's "accept". Indeed, you are consistently illiterate.

Me too.

Mine's in France until Monday so she's not omnipresent, though.

With this incredibly childish and spiteful post, jide oni has lost the last shred of the credibility that he may have still had at this point.

Although I will point out that while there is a slight possibility that alien life elsewhere in the vast vast universe has also developed custard, the only place there is definitive evidence of the existence of custard is planet Earth.
Apparently some people vehemently disagree with this comment. Do they have access to evidence of custard elsewhere in the universe that we are unaware of?

But again, I will point out that so far, custard is only found on planet Earth. And even IF it exists elsewhere, it's nowhere near as prevalent as say, hydrogen.

So then is this a bad time to point out that in most cases the orbits of moons and planets are slowing down and-or degrading?
