Yes, of course. The other poster asked what truths Christians know absolutely.
E=MC2 is one of them.
His religious views or non-views are irrelevant to said question.

Who profits from sin?

The government.

They have no use for getting rid of religion. Give it up, Topix atheists.

Remember, the only drive in theater for a long ways around was the night sky until recently. That was what people watched. You can't hardly see it anymore.
Refer to my post about headlights and egos.
Your statement sounded like something a fanatic fundie would say.
Funny that, eh?

I don't see whay Topix atheists couldn't be used for the next stage.

I posted this to point out something. How they refer to proteins and calcium interacting. Most people then think of chemicals just making something happen. They are thingies that do things. What I have been trying to point out is they are actually very complex EM transfers. The chemicals don't do a thing, it is the charge potentials within that do the things. It's like this ALL ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. This is very complex stuff.

The odds against abiogenesis are pretty high.

Nope. Nobody can prove scientifically that emotions exist or why they exist or why we feel them.
Neuroscientists are hard at work trying to figure it out, Topix atheists aren't.
Explain. We have emotions, therefore they exist.

It was a big screen outdoors where you parked in a lot to view the movie, get bit by mosquitoes, have a hassle with the speaker box, make out with a girlfriend, or watch others doing that, get bit by mosquitoes, pay outrageous amounts for refreshments, listen to squalling kids, get bit by mosquitoes, then go through the big merging to the exit after the movie, and the mosquitoes have drained you of blood.

They were actually a lot of fun.

The mosquitoes were free.

Can't remember the name of it, but there was a slot machine I played I loved that was based on the old drive-in concessions stands when you hit winning combos or bonus points. Really camped up woman of the times at the register. Ah, I think it was The Creature From the Black Lagoon.

Dave that is for Alzheimer's! No wonder you are keeping tabs on that as you are descending into Ronald Reagan 1990 Alzheimer's territory. You should volunteer your brain damage needs all the help it can get.

The Big Bang and the Steady State models are not the same. In fact, the SS was the primary alternative to the BB until the background radiation was detected. And yes, since the BB theory predicts ALL of those phenomena and no alternative has been found that also does so, they *are* evidence of the BB.
Uh huh. And IF BBT is ever discounted because of anew theory, all you atheist will be screaming "THAT'S JUST SCIENCE LEARNING ITSELF MORE.........."

Except, of course, E=mc^2 is NOT absolutely true. It is only true for massive particles at rest. The general version is E^2=m^2c^4 +p^2 c^2. where p is the momentum. This version even applies to light (photons), which your version does not.

Because of a what theory?

The great thing about science is it always progresses as more observable evidence is presented. You gotta love that!

You know actual observable proof. Neat!

I know 100% for sure that no all powerful compassionate god exists.

I know this because we have evidence of avoidable suffering.

Therefore the christian god does not exist.

I am not however trying to claim that no god could possibly exist.

Puppy, there is something you are going to learn at the very last moment. That is a life lived that you didn't learn something was no life at all.

You really need to start studying. You may done some things, but learning from those is something else.

Being lonely or awestruck may be something that occurs for you first. You would be amazed how fast they can happen, and out of the blue. You don't have the capacity to reason your way through those.
