No degrees in math, sweetie. Just the ability to fix physical things they can't.
Before leaning out the window of your ivory tower to view the world, make sure the window washer didn't leave any soapy water on the ledge.
Greek mathematics spanned much more than one guy, the first really well documented mathematician was Thales (although mathematics was known for hundreds of years before his life) and continues past Archimedes

No degree but an imagination born of Daveworld delusion and a belief in magic

And I must not forget to switch the gravity off

Do you have any nude pictures of yourself, or sexual activities you engage in that you can share with us? Something interesting since you aren't bringing much in the way of intellectual thought to these discussions. Pseudo and stamped out copies of such don't count.
No, have you?

As to what sexually excites your libido, I don’t really care what you masturbate to

Honey just because the process is not yet fully understood (but it is being worked on) does not mean you can throw in the town and say “I don’t understand do goddidit”
There have been countless scientists that were scientists because they tried to figure out how "goddidit", lovey.

They are the ones that brought modern science to you to hijack with your numerology.

Michael Faraday for one. Your modern science wouldn't exist without what he did.

The binding effects of that gravity disappear when you dream or die.

Perhaps the imagination relating to you of that sort may be better than the real thing. More fulfilling or satisfying.

David,

You should know that Jesus frowns upon those sheep in his flock that have the temerity to view nudity.

Tsk Tsk - that will take 100 our fathers and 2000 hail mary's to correct.

Waves, harmonics. Instruments sensitive enough to pick up frequencies we weren't designed to. One little rock. Felt all over the planet. Think of all the other energies occurring all of the time.
The earth is not as "solid" as you think.
Solids tend to conduct sound faster than gases or liquids.

Some of our Topix atheist on here who claim to be devotees of "science" are like Alice in Wonderland.

By they might consider themselves spelunkers.

They are out in the bright and colorful world. They trip on a hole, then see another hole leading down away from that hole. They grab a shovel and start digging, curious as to where it leads. Then they find a cave and start following it, gatherin gmore knowledge of the path as they go deeper and deeper into the cave, then the cave system. They are discovering something. Wow!! Look what they found!!! The universe is made of caves!!

While on the surface and in the sunlight everyone is wondering where in the hell did Christine go?

Because of the increased tension of the charges. "Tighter" webs.

That's cool and it just shows how IDiotic these people are. Even theists in other countries are dumbstruck at the stupidity of the ID movement. A Methodist Minister trolls me about it on Facebook!

I just respond that not all Americans are stupid enough to fall for ID and then pwn his face in on the MMO he plays with me and my buddies. He rolls a silly shadow priest and thinks he's going to dual my Deathknight. Not a prayer's chance he'll win I tell him!:))

He's pretty cool for a preacher man I must say.
