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.

Well god is a figment of the imagination. Yet the holy books say god spoke to man, walked with man, ate dinner with man, even had an all night man love wrestle session with man.

All of these would prove your statement wrong.

Since pretty much everyone has a camera on their phone, you'd think a physical creature like an alien or it's ship would've been photographed by now...
That's why I don't think they've visited earth.
But, you have no proof they haven't... right?

How do you know they're "physical creatures"?

What do you need a photograph for?

Didn't have to use it... but, had no reason to not use it. What was being discussed merited use of the word. There are things that are designed. We know they're designed. We designed them.
My vocabulary is limited enough as it is. I'm not going further limit it due to another's nitpicking of various words it includes... and Dave didn't do that anyway... this time, with me.

Yeah, for just a moment I looked for the yellow brick road when he didn't do that or mention it.

The colors represent temperature differences.
Since we can't see temperature differences, color is used so that we CAN see them.
They didn't make it up, RR. The colors are based on actual, measured temperatures.
Look up neutron star.
That's how dense you are.

Actually we can see temperature variations , but make them more pronounced so that we can see them and small variations more easily and clearer.

So you ignored everything that has been explained to you, literally everything, about scientific information just so you can pretend that it's all equal to your believe that your imaginary friend is in charge of the universe. That's low, really low, and exceedingly dishonest.
This is RiversideRedneck you're talking to, so you can never be surprised at the levels of cognitive dissonance or confirmation bias he will express.

Never.

Ever.

Expect it in every post.

You know this. I'm just sayin.

hahaaa...

He actually provides a valuable function on these threads.

I seem to remember uploading some app skins to deviantart somewhere around 12 years ago when I was in high school.

I used to be on that site all the time.

He's alright in a "not quite completely daft" sort of way.

But he's willfully ignorant.

I really dislike that in a person.
