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.

There must have been a million of these beams that crossed one another lying in the ruble. A symbol of hope versus no symbol of hope. The courts ruled in favor of letting the historic symbol of hope stand versus the Atheist insistence of hopelessness.
Without hope you have nothing and that’s what Atheist wanted us to have, nothing. But just as it stood out from the ashes today it stands defiant of hopelessness as it has for centuries.
The atheist said two broken beams violate their rights.

Now that they lost, I can only imagine the suffering.

Nothing can be infinite, in the observable or non-observable universe.

If it has a physical dimension, it is not infinite.

This has been proven over and over.

Wrong place. Wrong time. Dinosaurs didn't have to die off, but the space impact that blasted the Earth some 66 million years ago arrived at a most inopportune moment for the long-time rulers of the planet, according to a report released Monday.
There's never a good time for an asteroid impact, of course, but debates have roiled among scholars for decades over whether volcanoes or a long-running decline in species may have played a bigger role in the demise of the dinosaurs.
Now a Biological Reviews journal report concludes that the asteroid or comet that created the Yucatan's Chicxulub crater was indeed the likely leading culprit. Other factors, most notably a vulnerable sub-population of big plant eaters, essentially left the dinosaurs ripe for the asteroid wipe-out.
"If the asteroid hit five million years later or earlier, the dinosaurs might still be around," says paleontologist Stephen Brusatte of the United Kingdom's University of Edinburgh, a member of the report panel that included experts from leading dinosaur museums and universities worldwide. "An impact would have been horrible for them, but they had survived dips and dives for more than 150 million years," he says.
At least six miles (ten kilometers) wide, the Chicxulub impact object left a crater some 110 to 180 miles (177 to 290 kilometers) wide and 12 miles (19 kilometers) deep beneath Mexico's Yucatan peninsula and the Gulf of Mexico.
"Dinosaurs didn't have to die off, but the space impact that blasted the Earth some 66 million years ago arrived at a most inopportune moment for the long-time rulers of the planet..."

you mean the flood of Noah's day - glad we're on the same page now!

those gaytheist f*s will believe ANYTHING BUT documented history when it includes our Creator!

Buck there is no assignable dimension to the unobservable.
That's exactly the same as looking at the surface of the water and then saying,
Its not deep here, without a single measurement. Theists are great with this logic though,
because they simply believe things without evidence.
In the case of the universe, all the evidence shows us its dimension is infinite.
Your belief is trumped in the face of general relativity and event horizons.

The water may be deep or shallow, nobody can say if they can't see the bottom or measure it.

But we know the depth is finite.

Every physical dimension is finite.

You are absurd.

It's funny, really.

If it's unobservable, how do you know it exceeds finite dimension?

Even if exceeding finite dimension were possible, which it is not.

Your problem is you don't know what infiniite means. You are using it the same way cosmologists use it when they throw the meaning of the term out and substitute it for "unknown".

On strict analysis, that practice is shown to be wrong by more serious mathematicians and physicists.

Your infinite universe sounds so grand. But it's bull shit.

Really now? All the evidence, eh?

How did they come up with the BBT, then? Or things like laws of thermodynamics?

The stuff you have been presenting has certain logical processes that are quite likely, however, you are inserting too many vague unknowns and coming up with a false model you trapped yourself into worshipping.

You have to turn those into a technology that works like any applied science before it becomes real.

We are exceeding a finite dimension with every second that ticks. Et's 11:42 oop 11:43.
With space/time and time dilation and acceleration beyond c, infinity becomes the reality.

I could be wrong, it's very possible I am.
Prove general relativity is wrong, and I am wrong.

Obama learned about it on the news.
A broad-based coalition of millionaires converged on Washington today to defeat a bill that would have increased the minimum wage for American workers to $10.10 an hour.

Leaving behind their mansions and yachts, the millionaires were motivated by what they saw as an existential threat to the country, Mitch McConnell, a spokesman for the millionaires, said.

“This was an extremely diverse coalition,” McConnell said, noting that everyone from the rich to the very rich to the super-rich united to vote down the bill.

McConnell hoped that today’s vote would burnish the millionaires’ reputation as “people who get things done.”

“Folks who have tried to pin a ‘do nothing’ label on us are dead wrong,” he said.“When it comes to stopping workers from being paid more, we spring into action.”

If a quantum theory of gravity is resolved, the infinity maybe then redefined.
So far no one has been able to quantify gravity or show how the grand unification is possible
and the Standard model is wrong. At such a time General and E=mc2 both become obsolete.
GL with that.
