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.

Wow. Hard to find a copy of The Alchemist. The copyright guys are active on that one.

The first song is The Alchemist by Enigma. That is the name of his mobile music studio. Light up a doobie and put that part on fullscreen. Take a photo tour of the rest of you. Understand the forces you see are at work within you, to. It's a matter of scale and interconnectedness

Because at one point in history there were no T-Rex's, then there were T-Rex's.
Did they all just evolve at once? No.
That would suggest that at some point in history, the first T-Rex was born, which spawned millions of others.
Then of course, I guess nature said that history's best killing machine isn't good enough & they all died.......
ugh
It's not our fault that god isn't real. God back to your cult leaders and complain to them about why they never bothered to teach you evolution or morals / honesty / intellectual enquiry.

You've chosen stupidity as your disease, now leave atheists alone.

Exactly. At some point, "S-Rex" becomes a T-Rex, meaning there was a first T-Rex...
Unless you're gonna assume that more than one was born at the exact same time....
No, you're not getting it.

80% recycling is pretty good. Itís surprising you have any land available for land fill in the UK. Iím glad to hear that you guys donít do ocean dumping.
If you take all the landfill area in the US and put it all in one location, it would be the size of New York .... the city, not the state.

You ignored the entire article quite well.
"Sun activity goes through cycles that stretch about 11 years. Currently the sun is moving toward the peak of a very energetic cycle which scientists expect to last through the middle of this year."
I have lived through 3 of these already, and nope, it's not something to worry about.
I don't really worry, myself.

However, it is a fact a CME ejected at the wrong time and of sufficient size can change the environment here in a very profound way. Amazing luck we have had over the years, eh? Ain't luck and randomness grand?

Well done.

Or never read it at all.

I would say the first pixel would be the one the designer put their first.

Can you tell which one it is? Probably not.

No, that is part of the point. It is *our* definition and classification scheme. In nature, the lines are blurry.

"Magnetism is the key to understanding the Sun."

That's a big sucker brewing. The quickness makes the mass more energetic, and less likely to be held in place. That is likely to be a big wad shot.

The sun is 109 earth diameters. Of course, due to that 6 times our diameter being on the surface of a sphere, it occupies much less than 1/18th of the surface, but given the depth it can go, you are talking many, many times our volume that can get upchucked of hot nasty stuff. Say it is 6 diameters deep, a shot string 6 times the diameter of the earth of plasma could hit the earth. However, it is likely to be a minor inconvenience at worst. Surely chance will spare us the pellet that would smack this clay pigeon real hard.

But it never hurts to have your soul settled.:-)

However, I do take care to hold it a moment, and say a few magic numbers of Polymath's to shoo away his virtual particles. They can upset my tummy.
