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.

My watch is three hours slow and I can't fix it. So I'm going to move to LA.

It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to have to paint it.
Pretty good. Can you just paint my house? It's not too big.

I know you don't know. With out it (Time) you've got no Big Bang. Science claims time started 13.7 billion years ago. Where did it come from? What's it doing here? Where's it going? There was nothing then there was time and the Big Bang. And you call my belief a myth, you've got all of everything coming from NOTHING. At least I have it being created by God.

Oh I see now why you're an atheist!!

It's because you believe in NOTHING.

Should crematoriums give discounts for burn victims?

I went to the museum in Athens where they had all the heads and arms from the statues that are in all the other museums.

A Catholic priest went to the cinema, and the prices were: Adults $5.00, children $2.50. So He said, "Give me two boys and a girl."

There is this restaurant in Hong Kong that is set up like a big buffet in the shape of an Ouija board. You'd think about what kind of food you want, and the table would move across the floor to it.

When I die, I'm leaving my body to science fiction.

I heard that you went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, "where's the self-help section?" She said if she told you, it would defeat the purpose.

Like gods, I've never seen electricity either, so I don't pay for it. I write right on the bill, "I'm sorry, I haven't seen it all month."

Doing a little work around the house. I put fake brick wallpaper over a real brick wall, just so I'd be the only one who knew. People come over and I'm gonna say, "Go ahead, touch it... It feels real."

I was going 93 miles an hour and got stopped by a cop who said, "Do you know the speed limit is 55 miles per hour?" "Yes, officer, but I wasn't going to be out that long..."

Jesus walks into a hotel, tosses three nails on the front desk and says, "Hey, can you put me up for the night?"

I will alert the media and notify the authorities.

I was in a clothes store the other day and a salesman walked up to me and said, "Can I help you?" and I said "Yeah, do you got anything I like?" He said, "What do you mean do we have anything you like?" I said, "You started this."

Her daddy promised Yahweh that whatever came out of his house first to greet him would be a burnt offering. His daughter came out. He kept his promise.

You don't know what a trouser snake is, Butch.
You have the macho of a lesbian with serious mental issues. You like to throw these terms you read in a book around that you have no real knowledge of.
It is noteworthy that you felt you had to lash out at me through my progeny, and in particular things you would do to minor children. You have already displayed involvement with children in foreign countries, porn pimping and distribution, and perhaps active participation in human trafficking.
You are really an indiscrete individual. Too indiscrete to be a male as you portray in today's world. That failure to make the connection between an ancient name and a very common male hazard was most revealing. Strangely I noticed Christine doing the same this morning, a claimed woman of the world and experienced.
But you are too mentally ill to change your ways or disengage. This is not a private room outside the public view for you to exercise your fantasies.
So what did you notice me doing that was so worthy of mention when attempting to explain your own limited understanding of anything outside davesworld?

Or are you just filling your irrelevant post with davseworld BS?

got it.
Once again, time doesn't 'come from' anything. That is because time has to be uncaused: causes require time.

One problem you seem to have is the whole notion of spacetime as a unit. That includes all of space and all of time as a single entity, spacetime. Because causes require time, which is part of spacetime, there can be no cause of spacetime as a whole. Furthermore, asking about 'before' the Big Bang is literally just like asking what is north of the north pole.

That was one of your more cogent posts. Since I just woke up and still not up to speed, maybe we can communicate for a change.

Perhaps you can get a glimpse of the esoterica I have been saying modern mat6h based physics has fallen in to as exemplified by this caused and uncaused thingy.

Time exists for us strictly because things appear to be in motion. Motion gives the means to measure time. Therefore, for you to analyze this universe, you can only do so relative to this motion, and a lot of supposition has been made about measuring points based upon our local observation of this motion. Relativity on a grand scale.

Anyhow, due to a relativity issue between my brain speed and universal time right now, I will just say that motion is THE force that set this universe in motion. This motion requires a cause. It may be north of the north pole, but it exists. It has to by the requirements of our own physics.

Our own physics reveals a process of expansion and growth that permeates our world. Little things, like seeds sprouting into life from chemical combinations. Those chemicals were assembled in a pattern "designed" to follow laws allowing for this expansion and animation to come forth. A seed is a singularity relative to the finished product.

You have read my frequent comparisons of the BB to a seed. This hot dense stuff it was supposed to have been is what you will see similar to seed imbibition when the seeds get watered. It starts the energy releases and raises the temp before expansion spreads the heat around.

The formation of this universe follows much the same pattern as components of it do creating what we call life and existence. Modern physics refuses to make that connection. They are stuck studying thingies instead of the overall process.

Seeds are caused and designed. We are all a bunch of glorified rutabagas.
