<quoted text>Holy shit, look at you dodge and weave, have you no shame!!!! I NEVER said God caused the deaths by starvation. Here>>>> You're driving down the road, you see two young girls playing in the park, about 9 years old. Suddenly a group of older man come out of the woods, grab bother girls and begin to torture and rape them. You can see police officers just down the street but you sit and DO NOTHING. You simply watch, eventually the men murder the two young girls, slowly, but still you sit and DO NOTHING. All you had to do was alert the police, they were within shouting distance, but you chose to do nothing. This is what your God did as those thousands upon thousands of children died horribly. If you have any balls at all answer this truthfully. What person could or would sit and do nothing as those little girls were tortured and killed? Conversely what God, if he existed and had the caring and compassion you say he has, would sit idly by and watch little children die?
Only God can create life, you know that, stop wiggling, it's unbecoming. God created all living organisms including parasitic worms that burrow into the eyeballs of children, look it up!!!! Now if you want to claim that man has the same ability as your God in creating living organisms I'm with ya!!!!
Once again, for the brain dead...No God didn't create the gun and order Lanza to kill those children, but like the man in the park, he sat idly by and watched the horror.
"Free will" is an illusion. Your God is omnipotent, he knows the future, knows exactly what will happen, could see this slaughter well before it happened, yet did nothing to change the course of history in order to save those children. More wiggling on your part, too funny!!!!
18,000 children die every day of starvation, but your ready to ignore that and say we should be happy for the rest that don't die a horrible death? What kind a rationalization is that?
Actually God has nothing to do with the beautiful little rose, that is the product of evolution with just a touch of manipulation by man. Nor is God responsible for the deaths of children since he is nonexistent. But I do enjoy watching you people try and rationalize the horrific behavior of your supposed God thing. Very enertaining!!!
More to the point why would any god let children suffer for any reason at all?

Love is more than getting a piece of ass.

It is an understanding we are all part of something bigger. Each one doing a function for the purpose of the whole. Oh, you can kill each other if there is a threat, but it is just something you have to do in the larger scheme of things. You don't make it personal.

Why do you hate Christians so much?
So man couldn't figure that out without god?

Why zat?

I don't hate the Christian. I hate the willful ignorance of the Christian.

Your belief in god stems from fear. You were indoctrinated ino believing this afterlife nonsense and now as you stare at death's door you are becoming desperate all in a vain hope heavenly bliss awaits you. Sad really.

When it is my time I will not waste one second on such delusions. I will instead use that time to reflect and rejoice in my good times and bad on family and loved ones and may the last thing I say be, may the future be bright for all.

I pity you Dave.

True, all he has left is childish temper tantrums. For a believer he sure clams up when you ask him to show proof for god.

He won't even describe the god he believes in.

Speaking of interconnectedness.

Look at those gauges for the solar wind. That means there is a steady input and pressure. It is not like the days of old science where we thought we were so isolated.

The interconnectedness of the earth and sun is a lot more complicated than simple gravity and orbital speed. They have a hint of the galactic effects, but have quantified them yet like they can with these satellites here.

There is a continuous flow of energy throughout the universe, and with it the ability to carry information.

Things ain't the way they taught you, or what you think.

Think big. Look back at yourself.
Cool site.

Too bad you don't have the slightest clue what it means.

Still...good job trying to look smart.

Keep working on it.

You see when things explode, gas, debris and matter are flung from the explosion point and flying out within space.
When the universe is expanding , gas debris and matter are not moving. The space is moving and becoming larger. The matter sitting still moves apart because space/time is growing between
