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.

Put your hand on a running electric motor under load on even a cold day. Or a transformer, including some of those you plug into the wall. Or your laptop and even its power transformer. Most any power generating or using appliance.

What do you feel?

Heat.

That wouldn't have been there "naturally".

How many of those thingies do you think are cranked up in this world at this moment?

Trust me, carbon credits won't mitigate the phenomenon much. Could buy some neato mansions and vacations for some, though.

They normally don't get into the stratosphere. That is a boundary layer.

Note the oscillation, vibration, and rotation. This causes heat. Kinda stresses things.
Radios, TV's, microwaves, and all of those other frequencies except for infrared pretty much came from space before we started creating them locally. Full strength sources on a local level.
The sun's magnetic field is supposed to be about the strength of a refrigerator magnet, albeit a rather large one. A long ways distant. We have stronger magnets than that powering this planet locally.
Actually, it's not. That is just an over simplified explanation of how it works.

Dave, your foolish inflated ego is showing...
"You are assuming a lot about what happens just because a body ceases to function anymore."
No Dave, you are. The function of your brain NEEDS your brain to exist, no different than the memory on your hard drive needs the hard drive to exist. Your five senses NEED a functioning brain to deliver the information to. These are not assumptions Dave, they are facts. We know what awareness is and awareness is not magic, it's the information gathered by your five senses and processed by your brain. Awareness is not an entity unto itself you foolish death denier.
"After many millenia of experience, mankind still refers to the spirit in each of us. Spirit is intangible. Non-physical, but very, very real."
Experience or ignorance and fear? Your ignorant baseless belief in ghosts may be real but the ghosts aren't. There is no knowledge of any ghosts so you can stop lying now.
:-)

Your time will come.

But you won't even remember me telling you this.

Your body in shock shuts off the processing of those senses. People vary in just how much shock it takes to do that. It is a potential reset state for the mind, dependent on the injury sustained. There is no way strict evolution can save such things in genes, as most tend to die exposed helpless to the elements and animals. Particularly if man evolved as proclaimed.

It's kinetic energy, "wave" and "vibration" is simply a description of kinetic energy. Since electromagnetic force is the most powerful it becomes a lot of kinetic energy when released, that is that "wave" from the source, the conversion of electromagnetic to kinetic. The frequency of the atomic structure, however, will cause different reactions to the kinetic force, this is because of the electromagnetic force in those atoms.

Heat is a measure of the presence of any and all energy, it's very vague, also very subjective. Even the Kelvin scale is not accurate for measuring energy, because of the various forms of energy, temperature can only tell how "excited" the atoms are.

Apparently God really didn't know babies.

Of course, he never had one, so that might be excusable.

Do you know what an idol is (apart from our super stars of course LOL)
"a. An image used as an object of worship. b. A false god. 2. One that is adored, often blindly or excessively"
"Graven" means "carved" That's all.

"Image" means "picture or representation".

So, any carving of anything is out.

Coherency seems to be one of your weaknesses.

"Erm, yes it does." what?

The bottom of the stratosphere is colder than the top. It's an inversion layer. There is a filtering action preventing much material from diffusing up into it. Some thunderstorms, volcanic eruptions, and airyplanes and rockets puncture that boundary called the tropopause, injecting stuff that otherwise wouldn't get up there. Once it does it tends to stay there. It puts another blanket on the bed.

Pretty clear, no?
Why stop there?

Ephesians 5:25 (the very next verse) Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her

Colossians 3:19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.

Genesis 2:24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

Proverbs 18:22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.

Hebrews 13:4 Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

My wife submits to me and I to her. Are you not the same?

Well, ignoring the fact that the largest contributors to greenhouse gases are all in the stratosphere, inert gases can make it all the way to the ozone, because they don't react with anything and only when they react with something do their weights actually change comparatively. But you are correct, they do keep adding "blankets" to the atmosphere. But the problem is that it's not likely to be the gases we release that tipped the climate change, but the energy near the glaciers that did.

You are almost trying to describe what I have said about motion of space, THE ENERGY, caught in loops, creating matter. and being transferred. Motion is THE force.

Heat is the wave the streams of space make in running their loops. No matter how big those loops are. Most of those are pulsed streams.
