Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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. Full Story

Well, it depends on what you're meeting them for. It could have lots of meanings!

At the basic level, the math in chemistry is mostly proportionality: 1 mole= Avagadro's number of individuals, how do you balance a chemical equation, etc. Calculus isn't used until the dynamics of the reactions are considered, or when the thermodynamics aspects are more relevant.

I'm ok atm, my exam is latter in the week. It's not a final year one, but I still want to get a good grade.

The thing is, I can do the mole calculations/pv=nrt and using that to work out Mr/empirical/molecular formula, q=mc X change in temp, but I don't understand why i'm doing it. I have a good memory so i just remember how to answer those questions, but I can't visualise in my head what is going on. That's why I prefer biology, coz i can see what's happening, in my head.

Well, PV=nRT is fairly straightforward. Think of it in stages. Suppose you have a given amount of gas and you compress it. What will happen? The pressure will go up. How about if you heat it? The pressure will go up. how about if you put more in? The pressure will go up. The point is that there is one constant, R, that works well for all gases. So, if you know P,V, and T, you can figure out how much of the gas there is (n). Or, correspondingly, if you now how much there is and what the temperature and pressure is (n,P,T), you can determine the volume.

As for q=mc*(delta T), remember that c is the amount of heat required to raise one mole (or gram, depending on your specific definition--be careful) by a temperature of 1 degree. So, if you raise it by 2 degrees, it takes twice as much heat. If you have twice as much of the material, it takes twice as much heat to raise it all by that 1 degree.

You know something, the world population grows by about 1.2% each year. Christianity grows by 1.3%

Enjoy!
In underdeveloped countries where Christian missionaries are hard at work.

It's dying in the civilized world.

That's not the bit I find difficult, i'm so stupid i can't explain. I'm revising that stuff tomorrow evening, would you mind going through a question tomorrow? Then I can show you what bit I don't get.

My lecturer is so annoying, he doesn't know how to explain things. I end up getting more confused.

The portion you cited from Wikipedia, came from here: http://www.christianpost.com/news/christian-p...

The same Christian news source that I cited from, in which you said:

1 - media, not a reliable source.

As far as the "blog" source I gave(From a Presbyterian Minister), I added it only to support the numerous other sources I gave, Christian in origin which agreed that Christianity is declining.

It is declining in the west, rapidly, and experiencing some growth in third world countries.

Nevertheless, it is on a decline.

No guarantees since I am pretty busy tomorrow. If I have time and see a question I will attempt to answer it.

Top money saving tip: if the pneu [French spelling] is only flat on the bottom, jack up the car, rotate wheel 180 degrees and lower it back down on the inflated side.

That trick doesn't work in the Western hemisphere for some weird gravitational reason.

Believe me, I know, because I tried it.

I even tried rolling the car forward and backward.

Where's Dave Nelson to provide the explanation for this anomaly?
