Even if there were supporting demonstrable evidence, it would still do nothing to prove your God thing exists. But do keep trying, I enjoy the show!!!

It's the same sort of statistics and probabilities some of our QM proponents use. Plus the virtual particles, and thus reality.

Stuck ones.
Cranking up Windows after a while when you really need it in a hurry, and you get stuck in endless updates in which you have to reboot.
Never happened to me. You have to know how to run the windows and not let then run you.

Yes, like all terrorists they were killing for their belief (and still do on a small scale), not the belief of the majority of the population concerned but their own personal minority belief.
They made there belief public by committing some of their atrocities such as indiscriminately killing children in the United Kingdom
And they named themselves the IRA of whatever flavour, the R meaning republican.
The fact that they were funded by cash and drugs supplied by US republicans and armed by terrorist republican and communist states using the money donated by US republicans and the suffering of addiction makes no difference to the fact that they were (are) called the Irish Republican Army.
In fact I suppose because they called themselves the IRA excuses drug running, child murder and indiscriminate terrorist acts in your eyes - right?
Just because they are republican in Ireland doesn't mean republicans fund them from here Christine, It could be many professed democrats supporting them from here also. The Irish "republican" name means nothing in America.

No really I have run suse (you said you like suse) and redhat , but I like windows, though it's terribly expensive in comparison.
Friends will send you the hat for nothing.

BUT...and there's always a but...

I like windows because I worked real had to understand it.
Probably the same reason you like your flavor of OS.

I haven't messed with Mac much, I suppose I should give it a whorl.:)

Hukt, there is a big difference between a few miles of optic cable and the edge of the universe. Too much to base modern cosmology on an assumed constant speed of light.

Open the pod bay door, Dave.

I was talking ABOUT a few miles of optical fiber.

NOT cosmology.

For anyone without that horrible metal illness, Delusional Disorder, having an invisible being touch you on the head would be a terrifying experience. Not only touch you, but be totally convinced it was real. I'm always amazed at the extent of what an unsupported belief can do to people. Scary, really scary!!!

Thanks, Dr Phil.

But you're wrong.

You don't know me, why are you psychoanalyzing me like you do?

Is being disingenuous common for you?

The original topic was about c and its relativity to cosmology.

Light let loose in the wild ass universe. Does it follow "the law" as dictated by men?

Or something like that.

Ah, but how would you know if you're in control if it's just making you do what you want to do?

I'm just playing an existential game is all, fun, nothing more. ;)
