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.

If you are going to make stupid claims like “Black hols and dark matter are hypothetical and have never been detected my science.“ then I suggest you check that science first before sticking your foot in your mouth

PTSD would be a dry term used to describe what you are suffering from. A dry and very remote term for something you are experiencing. You can understand why people have different perspectives from such. We all still live in our own skins.

You had a visual memory burned into your consciousness. Your consciousness is usually pretty fluid, but you have this image blocking the way. Sort of like a program freeze on your computer.

Such happens to people on a continuing basis.

You are the only one that can reset that.

It was a life changing, in a big way, event. But you should notice life is still going on. It didn't end, and the experience may in the end be an enhancement to your existence because of the new perspective. It happened and you aren't going to change it. You just adapt to it.

Life is kinda like going shopping. You can pick up things that get downright heavy to carry, and you have a long ways to go. Such distracts from your enjoyment, especially if the bag handles cut into your fingers. Window shopping can be more fun. Hooking the bag over your shoulder to take the strain off your fingers helps if you have to carry something.

I wandered off there.

That event is long gone. The effects are still there, but you just adjust to them. Close your eyes, look at what happened objectively, then reset. It won't be as painful as always turning away in fear the rest of your life. You have a long ways to go.

Little one, even on this forum you shine like a diamond. You are a precious gem. You got polished a bit. Like I said before, if Godzilla shows up and you had two legs you would be running terrified on your own for your life. The gem you are would cause a crowd to gather about you with spears to fight Godzilla. Something loves you more than you know.

Hiding behind christianity to mock disability is a sad personality trait you have there.
Man up, come out of the closet and say what you really mean.
You are angry and reactive, and not as objective as you would like to be.

BTW, flying bugs, fish, and porpoises would make better 3D programmers than you.:-)

C'mon, boy. Did you even read it???

"Scientists have created the largest scale rendering of dark matter"

-- A rendering?? LMFAO

"Dark matter has never been directly detected"

-- I just love it when your own "proof" proves you wrong.

"Dark matter is likely to be composed of one or more species of sub-atomic particles that interact very weakly with ordinary matter. Particle physicists have many plausible candidates for the dark matter, and new particle accelerator experiments are likely to bring new insight in the coming years."

Plausible likelihoodness is NOT fact.

But you fall for it. Hook, line & sinker.....

"Astronomers can then use this gravitational imprint to calculate the size of the matter that caused it. Using such techniques, astronomers estimate that dark matter forms web-like structures, made up of clusters, filaments, and large rope-like structures that the new research has uncovered. But only until dark matter becomes visible will these assumptions become fact."

Even your own link admits that dark matter is an assumed theory.

It is not fact.
