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.

But in a vacuum you're saying frequency makes no difference?[/QUOTE]

Actually, there was recently a particle discovered that was faster than light.
No.

It was found to be an instrumentation error, do try to keep up.

First of all, we can't even tell if there's life on Mars or Venus and they're right next door. What makes you think we can absolutely be certain of oxygen on a planet million of light years away?

Second, you're assuming that oxygen is needed for life to exist.
He said better. Not perfect.

And we can detect elements in the atmospheres of other planets by observing light that passes through them.

There will be dark bands-absorption lines-at particular frequencies for particular elements.

I didn't go much past high school, and I know this stuff.

Apparently you can somehow detect the energies and heat of the atoms in elements in the atmosphere, looks like you are stupid even when it comes to your own reasoning.

Very good!
*claps for poly*
So the speed of light is not fixed, it's a variable.
Either you have the attention span of a goldfish or you chose to ignor the part "in a vacuum".

The light FROM the galaxies travels at c, regardless of whether they are moving towards or away from us.
If they are moving away, the wavelength becomes stretched out.
Do you know what the Doppler effect is?
It is the same principle, only regarding sound.
A train approaching you has a higher pitched sound than when it is going away from you.
Try it sometime.
It works best if you stand between the tracks.
Or in LargeLanguage case on the tracks.

No, I did not assume that. What I claimed is that free oxygen is evidence of life and is better evidence than a picture taken by a hillbilly. There are certainly types of life that do not require free oxygen.
And we could be certain of the existence of free oxygen if we detected its spectrum, although that technique is likely to be limited to planets that are within a couple hundred light years from us (for technical reasons).
Ok, I understand what you meant about the free oxygen vs the hillbilly pic.

But now you're finally admitting that with our current technology, there's absolutely no way we can know what the universe is doing.

1. Did you see that I call attention to my typo and corrected it.

2. I said Physics not English.

3. What is significant here is that I found my own typo, admitted to it and corrected it. You on the other hand made a mistake about the accuracy of the velocity of light and despite been corrected by myself and others you have yet to correct your mistake or admit to it.

Godbot ploy 999 try and shift the goal posts because you are wrong.

You are trying to bring in relativity which only shows you do not understand relativity.
