Not really.

Unless, apparently, you refer to a deity.

The frequency compresses apparently according to him because it is being blocked by the earth and being pressed onto it. Apparently according to AreoMoron it gets stretched out as it reaches into space freely. But you cannot provide proof that all energy or light comes from the earth.

Yes it is and if a light is moving up and down (frequency) a hundred times more often then another light can they make the same distance in the same amount of time?[/QUOTE]Yes.

You're confused, aren't you?

At this point keeping track of all if his errors is a useless endeavor as they keep piling up.

Sadly his ignorance is a willful ignorance not just mere not knowing.

This page has some issues
Main category: Religious demographics
Sources outside of Wikipedia give differing estimates:

The CIA's World Factbook gives the world population as 7,021,836,029 (July 2012 est.) and the distribution of religions as Christian 33.39%(of which Roman Catholic 16.85%, Protestant 6.15%, Orthodox 3.96%, Anglican 1.26%), Muslim 22.74%, Hindu 13.8%, Buddhist 6.77%, Sikh 0.35%, Jewish 0.22%, Baha'i 0.11%, other religions 10.95%, atheists 2.01%

persecution. A 2006 study by researchers at the University of Minnesotainvolving a poll of 2,000 households in theUnited States found atheists to be the most distrusted of minorities,

In 2012, an article entitled Atheism in decline by Nigel Tomes declared:

In 1970 atheists (those avowing there is no God) numbered 166 million worldwide; that was almost one-in-twenty—4.5% of the globe’s population. By 2012 atheists’ number is estimated at 137 million. That’s a decline of almost 30 million. Since world population is growing, atheists’ share declined to less than one-in-fifty—under 2% in 2012. Put differently, every 24 hours there are 800 fewer atheists in the world! Atheism is in decline.

That is the exact speed *in a vacuum*, as has been pointed out many times.
Light going *through matter* is slowed down by the interaction (actually absorption and re-emission) by that matter.
Very good!

*claps for poly*

So the speed of light is not fixed, it's a variable.

Right.

So the smell of shit is evidence of shit?

The feeling of hear is evidence of heat?

A hillbilly's photo of a UFO is evidence of aliens?

Gimme a break, man.
