Time exposures and film sensitivity. You would not get a picture like that there with a Kodak Instamatic.
That is dim light out that far. You could bump into Neptune and Uranus because you could barely see them.
The gases catch the light energy and create a sort of fluorescent light. You don't have that intense direct light we have here. The sun is just a big star that far out.
The difference between being under fluorescent grow lights and an infrared bulb.
Saturn and Jupiter are planetary nurseries.
If I take up a collection and get enough from it, would you buy a clue?

Check how long it takes for sunlight to hit the various planets and portions of the universe. Don't forget to figure in the inverse square law and it's loss of strength.
It takes 8 minutes to reach Earth, 45 for Jupiter, and 75 for Saturn.
So Saturn is 75 light MINUTES away as compared to the nearest star, which is 4 light YEARS away.

It's warm enough, even at the distance of Pluto, to sublimate frozen solids.

My offer stands on that clue thing.

Ah the coward's way out. It's a shame you Christians are so weak and pathetic. Truly you fear our questions as evidence by your cowering from them.

You'll never be 1/64th the man I am pussyassbitch.

Know your role and get back to your door greeter job at Walmart. Why even try to debate us when it's obvious you never had a chance as evident by your inability to answer questions and ultra low IQ thinking Catholics don't believe in Jesus.

That sublimation would be caused by the light energy hitting the molecules as I have stated, not because of the "warmth". That energy transfer is what creates that "warmth".

Was the Sabbath changed from the seventh day of the week to the first?... Separation of Church and State ... Catholic Church Admits They Made the Change ... The Israelites received two laws from Moses: the law of Moses, that of ...“My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips”(Psalm 89:34)***
Who knows really what was altered but 'reading between the lines' and using your 'gut instinct' and applying what you are reading to that which it needs to be applied to, most of us are quite content getting the answers we receive.
I noticed that you did not address my concerns, you skipped off and started preaching.

Do you find it difficult to stay on track?

Hitlers "love" of Christianity is apparent:

10th October, 1941, midday

"Christianity is a rebellion against natural law, a protest against nature. Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure." (p 43)

14th October, 1941, midday

"The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death.... When understanding of the universe has become widespread... Christian doctrine will be convicted of absurdity....
"Christianity has reached the peak of absurdity.... And that's why someday its structure will collapse....
"...the only way to get rid of Christianity is to allow it to die little by little....
"Christianity <is> the liar....
"We'll see to it that the Churches cannot spread abroad teachings in conflict with the interests of the State." (p 49-52)

13th December, 1941, midnight

"Christianity is an invention of sick brains: one could imagine nothing more senseless, nor any more indecent way of turning the idea of the Godhead into a mockery.... <here insults people who believe transubstantiation>....
"When all is said, we have no reason to wish that the Italians and Spaniards should free themselves from the drug of Christianity. Let's be the only people who are immunised against the disease." (p 118-119)

14th December, 1941, midday

"Pure Christianity-- the Christianity of the catacombs-- is concerned with translating Christian doctrine into facts. It leads quite simply to the annihilation of mankind." (p 119 & 120)

9th April, 1942, dinner

"There is something very unhealthy about Christianity." (p 339)

Hitler sees Christianity the same way some of you atheists do.

I agree with you there. The evidence of Hitler's Christianity is mixed. However many nazis and supporters were Christians. And the church did... nothing.

Well, again, I don't see how any one can agree with it in total when it contradicts itself, both in facts and in ethics. If you accepted the entire Bible, you would be living with an inhuman amount of cognitive dissonance. Not to mention some very outdated mores. For example, do you support slavery?
Do I support slavery?

You do realize that slavery continues today even in our country. There are young girls who were drafted into prostitution and some were smuggled here for that purpose. My answer is absolutely a no, past, present or future.

In my own family history we had family members on both sides of the issue pre and post civil war. The Bible does talk about slavery but you must understand it was a legal and accepted practice at the time. It’s a historical fact but in Jewish history there were limits on slavery.

Another point Atheist seem to forget. In Jewish Biblical history the Children of Abraham were also slaves including Joseph who rose in rank in the Egyptian government.

Careful! Yahweh get's upset when you add to or take away from the Bible! The Bible never calls them man-made in that context.
Also, don't you find the idea that God could be jealous, and by extension insecure, an interesting passage?
Care to recant?

Psalm 115:4-8
King James Version (KJV)

4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

I disagree. Printmaking is an art that produces multiple copies by its very nature. Using technology to reproduce a work of art does not detract from the artistry that went into making the original. A piece's merit lies in its beauty and expressiveness, not the means by which it came to be.
