Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Any finite volume contains infinite area.
Any finite area contains infinite length.

Now go and fantasise about your prison sex again, it's all you're good for.

Bull shit.
No expanding finite can ever be infinite.
The universe is flat, as measured to 0.4% error margin. This, unfortunately for you means the universe is infinite to the same margin of error

And it is expanding

Kind of blows the mind eh? To the point that some people will actually deny the facts don’t you buck?

Infinite length of what?

"Length" is not a physical entity. It is conceptual.

Show me a physical entity of infinite length, then you will have fulfilled your assertion.

For now, you fail. I knew you would.

Bull shit.

According to Big Bang cosmology, the universe began finite, and expanded.

A sequence of a finite expanding by addition can never be infinite, by definition. Each finite addition results in a succeeding finite quantity, an always will.

With a finite volume, X, the next addition will be X + 1, then X +2,...

It can never be anything but finite.

It's absurd to say "infinite to the same margin of error".

Infinity is not measurable, so no margin of error could possibly apply.

You got this wrong before, Puck Frick.

You're assuming the time between iterations isn't shrinking.

Puck Frick prays for no infinity because he constructed a god that is stunted.

No, an atom is an atom, silly.

But it can encompass an infinite number of lines of infinite length. One example would be any Koch snowflake that is contained within the space occupied by the atom.

Bull shit. There are no lines of infinite length. Nowhere. None.

And there are definitely not an infinite amount of them.

An atom containing an infinite number of "anything" of length greater than zero would be an atom so large it could not be contained on this planet, or the entire solar system.

One "anything" in an atom of infinite length would require that atom to be larger than the planet Jupiter, or a million Jupiters.

Where did you get the idea I don't accept homosexuality? I don't even disagree that most homosexuals are born that way. Surprise.
However, calling it normal is a lie. A mating behavior that always fails when exercised in its innate function is defective.
My primary disagreement is equating mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gender couples with marriage.
Your denial of these facts only further establishes your position as Queen Blondie of the 'rational atheist' oxymorons...

Only from your post.
Why does sex have to always be about mating? You are not considering mutual pleasure. Have you never considered sex for pleasure? This could explain why you are such a failure.
And why do you object to people marrying because they love each other? Oh I get it’s because you don’t think that people who love each other should get married, they should only get married for mating – right?
Accurately noting that homosexuality is a sexual birth defect means I don't accept homosexuality??? What kind of logic is that?

Where did I say that sex is only about mating? I've said marriage is primarily about mating. If it were only about sex, marriage not only wouldn't be necessary, it'd be a hinderance.

I don't object to love. You don't need marriage to love. I note that words describe reality. Marriage describes a specific relationship that ss couples can never qualify for. They will always be inferior next to a fruitful, diverse gendered couple.

No. But religion is a defect that has held back humanity 1000+ years.

Then like so much else you don’t understand the basics of cosmology. You are confusing the visible universe of you mind with the universe

Personally I will take the word of world leading cosmologists at NASA and the perimeter institute over the word of a convict of little intelligence
