Ok it doesn't seem rather impossible for life to have billions and billions of positive mutations to get to where we are today when in most Likely hood the odds show life would mutate to a dead end and become extinct far easier?

Well, you seem to have proven my point via reductio ad absurdum.
Disagree. The bending of space time is due to gravity. weight being the measuring stick of gravity.

No, the bending of spacetime *is* gravity. And that bending is due to mass (and energy, and momentum), not weight.

Weight is the measurement of gravity not of mass. The mass of Neil Armstrong stayed the same but he weighted a lot less on the moon then on earth. Because gravity is stronger on earth then on the moon. So the mass was the same the weight changed with the power of gravity. Weight is a measurement of gravity not mass.
Here is a question:

Take an astronaut that weighs 200 lbs on the surface of the earth. Put that astronaut in orbit 200 miles above the earth. What is the weight of that astronaut? What is the force of gravity from the earth on that astronaut?

You'd also be wrong in terminology.
You wont find a physicist, astronomer,cosmologist, who calls a star
highly weighted. Or call a photon weightless, the terms are massive and massless. Weight is a all but meaningless term in space, but mass and specifically density IE: m/v these are very relevant and meaningful.

Clearly these are just more atheistic lies.

Yeah , that astronaut may carry some weight that close, but without something like the terra firma to push against it'd be hard to get him on the scales. My idea was more like beyond the edge of the solar system , there weight has almost no meaning at all, that 200 pounds is 2 pounds on Pluto, but beyond Pluto you weigh almost nothing, but you will still carry 90.72 kg on Pluto
or Earth or beyond the ort cloud. He needs to learn that.

He needs to learn a whole lot of things.

Alas: faith is the opposite of learning, and he has much too much of it to actually ...

... learn anything.

The bible (old testiment) is a re-write of the torah the book of the jews, the jews where cursed as they had no apreciation for all the gifts they where given the wanted to see the god which moses spoke so good of and so allah showed a piece of his light and the light blinded some and they where banished from the right path unless they believed (the reason the have no country) then along came somebody and created an altered version of the torah now the bible and as time went on it was changed a bit more and then the quran came for all mankind.

The hardest part understanding about the faithful here in topix land, is that there is a world full of science minded religious people who do not fight against human knowledge. They understand the limitations and the fact of biblical errancy , they however all make exceptions to accommodate belief.
What comes to mind is people like Mary Schweitzer , a professed believer. Now I cannot say where she makes a flaw in reasoning to allow belief, or even if there is one. But at least she has the ability to set aside what is emotional based reasoning or her compassion to believe to see the scales are weighted down by the evidence in hand.

I think what I'm trying to say is simply, no matter what you want to believe, you have to follow the evidence to the end.
Even if it means you wont want to hear it , when you find it it is the truth. Unless there is an error, but for the simple things like evolution, and general relativity, it serves no useful purpose to deny them. Acceptance and adapting is the key .
Mary knows this and she was upset with how the creationists treated her and science about her discovery. She also said it give believers a bad name.

This is the thing our topix variety of believers must learn, that it serves no purpose to reject science, it gives belief a bad name, and give them an name of less than honorable mention.
Your Aura should be of enlightenment and knowledge, faith can be there but science is our only way to finding the truth.
But then again I could be mistaken, maybe truth is not what they want to find.

I didn't say "weight" I said gravity and that gravity is measured by weight. The mass is a constant weight changes with gravity.

Get it right would you?

LOL. What a Dolt.

Pluto's place in the solar system has nothing to do with what you would weigh well on Pluto.

You could be billions and billions of light years away from anything and gravity would still be there.

No, the bending of Tzar *is* "stupidity".
