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.

And what is the *largest* the refractive index will be on that journey? So how much does that affect the total time of travel?
<quoted text>
Only if there is a very concentrated mass.

On the contrary, we have very good info on densities and thereby indices of refraction in interstellar space. More relevant than refraction is actually absorption, but that is also easily detected and corrected for.
Light slows down the longer it travels, anyway.

Speed is not the cause for mass. Mass and energy causes speed. An objects movement, and its speed it caused by force, idiot! Speed doesn't cause the force!
Go learn some actual physics. What you wrote is all nonsense.

As your photons or waves or whatever pass through a magnetic field they build a charge that reacts to the field they pass through. A magnetic flux is comprised of many flux lines. A photon, or photons, passing through a magnetic field, however weak, for millions of miles is going to be affected. A group of photons will then also interact with each other in their travels because of that charge.

Find a place in space with no magnetism passing through it.

Physical interaction is not as clean and static as your math formulas would like you to believe. You take averages from gross observations and make them constants.

Let's take a .00001 percentage of error and multiply by many trillions. How much does that add up to?

Wrong.
A ray tracer, a software used for lighting 3D environments, has light travelling the further it does, the darker the object appears when it hits the surface. Why? Explain, since the ray tracer is meant to mimic real life.

Not multiplied. Stays at .00001%

That your statement was incomplete.
The same thing you accuse others of being wrong about when they do the same.
Here it is again:

"The speed of light is not a constant."

What part of that do you find incomplete?

Or it could just be a bit of dyslexia, I don’t need an ego like yours for being unable to spot errors particularly when the words is spelled correctly so my spell checker does not flag it up.
However if you want to LMAO at my disability, feel free to wet yourself, after all it’s the christian way.
"when the words is spelled correctly"?!?

You can admit you were wrong now.
That proves nothing, it's just a computer program - one so silly even my 14 year old son could create it in a few minutes.

So Dave since you have repeatedly cowered away from my question can we safely assume I properly and accurately proved you wrong on your statement that believing in god, as you claimed makes you better than non believers and gives you the right to look down on them?

Your cowardice on this is remarkable I must say. I humbly accept your surrender by forfeit and rightfully so.

The Earth has to have matter emitting nuclear particles here and there and round about. A certain amount of plasma discharge has to occur, too.
If this is ejected into space, where will it go? Being heavier mass, would it not wind up heading for the sun? I would think electron would, too.
There has to be a return path for charged particles and loose nuclear bits back to the sun.

Right.
You are a gnostic theist.
You KNOW god exists.
Which is a logical absurdity.
There were some thousands gods, but not a single one is proved!
