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.

It's against Topix policy for you to alter a post like you did.
I'm not going to report you are anything, just passing along the information.
Typical empty threat from a Creationist cult member who knows he has no evidence of god.

Haha. Nervous, are you?
Posting the fact that a black hole has never been observed is not "attacking science".
Posting the fact that infinity is only a concept is not "attacking science".
Now you can get back to attacking religion, whenever you're ready.
Its because you are insecure that you attack science and cannot defend your made up religion.

Go home, you are wasting your time here. Your cult needs as many people as are left in it.

Black holes have never been observed, only there supposed effects have.
Whenever you're ready, boss.
Nobody's waiting for your god to show up, because that lie has gone stale over the last 4000 years.

Show us evidence of your buybull god, there's a good idiot.
Haha!

That's like saying evidence of a boat's wake is evidence of the boat.

Try again, sweetheart. I asked for evidence of a black hole, not for evidence of it's supposed effects.

Duh, it is, because you can prove that only a boat could have produced that wake.

Very well. Demonstrate it.

We're waiting in eager anticipation for you to do what no one in existence has ever done - prove infinity can exist.

What caused the wake and what it looks like can only be speculated.

Much like supposed black holes.

You’ve been a big fan of Europe and your Europe has shot down a civilian airliner. Ukraine is in Europe, right?

The godless Europeans seam to be unconcerned because they get a huge amount of oil & gas from Russia. As we say in Texas,“Russia has Europe by the short hairs.”

The Europeans are just going to let the Russians run amuck because they don’t have the fortitude to make a stand for another European country. Ukraine shall fall as did the civilian aircraft. Russia will become even stronger with its latest annexation. This equates to a stronger Ruble.

What European country will be next on the list? I do not care. Let Russia gobble up all it wants. Taking one country after another. Americans have given our blood and buried our dead in Europe in two world wars. What do we get for our efforts?

Godless Europeans disrespecting our sacrifices by making the claim there’s no god even though thousands of crosses of our dead remain in their country. Let the godless atheist defend Europe or let Russia have it all. Like a house of cards let Europe fall.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kepler 's_laws_of_planetary_motion
...and just in case you still have a problem with this information:

Here's the equation: Mp^2 = a^3

Translation: mass times period squared equals distance cubed (actually orbital axis cubed, which is where the "a" comes from).

The upshot: If you want to know how massive the object is at the center of our galaxy, all you need to know are the orbital period of a star revolving around it, as well as the star's distance from the object. Then you can solve for the mass.

Luckily, our infrared telescopes allowed astronomers to observe the orbits of those stars around the mystery object over a long period of time, which is what you see in both those videos. So we were able to figure out A) the stars' orbital periods and B) how far away from the object their orbits are. Which is how we discovered that the object is likely 4.1 million solar masses, and 6.2 light hours in diameter (roughly Uranus' orbit around the Sun). That means this object has crammed the masses of 4.1 million Suns into a space that's as small as Uranus' orbit. Holy freakin' moly. <<<<Only a black hole is capable of doing that.>>>>

That's Cantor's philosophy - the unending list of countable natural numbers. He disagreed with you, called it "countable infinity". It's hogwash. Every number that's naturally countable is finite. There's no way that numbers can count 1,2,3,4,5,6......infinity. No way.
The only thing that's actual about infinity is the concept of it. Outside the concept, infinity doesn't exist.
This is where you fail entirely in human logic, and there is no recourse.

We can only conceptualize the finite by logic, and infinity cannot exist and....
Can never be counted by logical reasoning.
The saddest part of thus realization, is that you want the infinity to explain your creator, but deny it's possibility. While I deny creationist gobbledygook explaining how such infinity can exist.. If I were successful in demonstration , of your false belief.
You will simply cease to exist.

In this way I instill infinite fear on you, and you will never escape me. For I am the reality.

If the universe is infinite, it counted to infinity. In a finite amount of time.
It expanded like this: 1,2,3,....infinity.
Why would you say you can't count to infinity but the universe can expand to infinity?
It's the same thing.
Nothing can count that high, but it doesn't mean it hasn't been done.
