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.

That's flux density.
Each magnetic flow or electrical flow starts and returns to the same piece of matter. It is a polarity relative only to that chunk.
Garbage yet again. Please learn how it really works. Like this, the rest of your post has no connection with reality.

Just a charge field occupying a portion of it changes the inherent value of it. Creates a density differential. This is the basis of gravity. This is something you find within atoms, so this is what gives the illusion of gravity being some mysterious inside out phenomenon, and the Higgs' boson theory.
LMAO. Do you have any connection to *real* physics, or do you just make this all up? It looks like the latter. The rest of your post is more of the same fantasy.

Funny coming from a guy whose only reality is from the books he reads.

That is how it flows, and the origination of it. On a physical basis.

Give us a physical description the way you KNOW it without the numbers and references to equations and theories, etc.

He just makes it all up. It's real for him. He doesn't need to test it. He can just think it up and it must be so.

Btw, thinking about armchair physics...thinking about 2 dimensions of time and comparing that to "flatland." I think Mrs. Flatland could work out that some circles, but not others, had shadows - and how the shadows worked. I don't know if they could deduce from that that a 3-D world existed and was necessary to have shadows, though.

So what would constitute a "time-shadow"?

And what does it mean if someone says "the second dimension of time is thermal"???

Me no understand :(

Totally, totally, totally.

Sam Harris said that we can determine that some religions are worse than others. "Mormonism," he said, "is objectively less real than Christianity because it's just Christianity with a bunch of extra stupid stuff thrown in."

Ok, what is dark matter then?
We don't know its composition. We do know locations, though.
Uhm...what are they actually monitoring if not black holes?
Oh wise one, tell us all!
Black holes are not part of the dark matter. That is one aspect that we do know (if it were, the effects on the background radiation would be quite different).

It gets pumped by motion.
Your particle wave duality is nothing but this motion wrapped into a packet, particles, moving through space, creating a wave.
You can't move a "particle" without moving the space with it. Space gets displaced. There is your dark energy. Lot more space out there than matter.
You will find some theories of the Big Bang where the universe was monolithic, and the Big Bang was a singularity that expanded in it, creating our local version of space, and matter from that expanding bubble of that monolithic universe substance. So space is very much part of the circuitry. You can't have motion without it.
But then you have what was this monolithic universe our bubble was created in. On paper and mathwise, it is just a starting point, but in actuality, it had to be something.
But then this whole universe may be more illusory than you can imagine right now.
Seriously, grab a real text book on Physics and Math you are just embarrassing yourself.

You do realize we are just laughing AT you?

Try casting a shadow without a source of energy or something you can measure from another dimension. Such as the beam of light hitting a wall you make your shadow puppets with. Hence 3 dimensions.

Stupid woman. Any elementary school child can figure that out.

However, that source has to wrap around and interact with those hands. The beam gets redirected and the shadow is the subtracted energy hitting the wall. You have to be in junior high for that.

That isn't correct poly , there are several variations of hypothesis where black holes are constituting part of what considered dark matter. Here is one.

Exactly....
None of you atheists can prove a black hole OR dark matter.
But you allow them to "explain" the unexplainable....
Atheism DOES require faith.

hehehehe Even you athiests (Aura, poly) can't agree on whether or not a blacl hole has dark matter in it...
See?
More "evidence" that crumbles before your eyes.
Seriously, when are you people gonna wake up?
