No, HOW is that? And do you have any basis for that accusation?
Very probably. Unless we're extinct.

But you don't.

That was called the "goddam" particle. Some editor decided that was potentially offensive, and changed it. Higgs hated that.
And you know that perfectly well - so that actually qualifies as a lie.

Yeah, we'll refine the number to another decimal point. 13,700,000,000 is a bit vague still. So what is your point?
Because science changes so often - and changes drastically - it isn't a trustworthy source.

You are correct, they were not scientists. The scientific method was not developed by then and since that is what science is, no one prior to it's development can technically be called a scientist. Often many great minds of the past utilized a method that was similar to the scientific method, so we give them due respect by giving them the label of scientist. So I fail to see your point, without the scientific method, you cannot be a scientist anymore than a person could be called a software engineer before computers were invented.
They were scientists of their day.

I assume that scientists in 4012 will look back at the scientists of 2012 in the same, snarky matter that you're looking at the Greek scientists...

The fact remains it will still be a car no matter WHAT you CHOOSE to call it.
The fact remains the bible still states what it states, no matter HOW you CHOOSE to twist what is stated.

Now you DARE to disrespect the BIBLE by stating that no part of the bible commands you to kill witches?
Or are such simple words simply beyond your comprehension?
The only thing I'm discrediting is you.

All I'm asking you to do is show where I have to kill witches....

That's all.

I also want you to understand that parts of the bible are simply stories and not necessarily laws for all to obey.

Lot had sex with his daughters, right? Does that mean we are all supposed to? It IS written....

Don't be gullible.

Islam will be its own undoing. They kill themselves from the inside out. More people convert from Islam to Christianity than vice versa.

Your little survey means diddly. As the worlds population grows, so does Christianity.

In some Middle East countries, you are born a Muslim and have no choice. Try to convert to something else or become atheist and they kill you...

Christianity is a voluntary system, Islam isn't.

No, it wasn't.

That the average person may have thought so in no way means scientists were scratching their heads over the possibility of automatic doors being invented or that scientists dismissed such an invention as something that could only be possible in science fiction.

You are SO naive.

Did you know that the CELL PHONE was first conceptualized in the 1940s and by the actress Hedy Lamarr?

Bet you didn't.....

"Hedy Lamarr is remembered as a stunning legend in Hollywood's Golden Age.

However, most people do not know that she would co-patent the technology for today's cellphones, Wi-Fi and GPS by building a torpedo for the U.S.Navy.

Why are you so STUPID that you call an article in Time Magazine "my" little survey?

Nope- it does NOT mean diddly- or at least not any more than YOUR claims that the entire world will convert to Christianity.

That will no more happen than will the entire world converting to Islam.

You IDIOT. If you are commanded to NOT let a witch live, that means you are to KILL them.

RR, I'M not gullible, but YOU sure are in your moronic attempts to twist the words of the bible at your convenience and to suit your own agenda.

The bible CLEARLY states that you shalt not allow witches to live.

Sigh....I KNOW it was from my link, my dear.....the POINT of what I posted was not about the existence or non-existence of a god- it was about what our founding fathers had to say about the BIBLE.

DO try to keep up. I realize that for you, a belief in a god and a belief in the bible go hand-in-hand, but sorry to have to alert you on this- MANY believe in a god who do NOT believe in the bible and who do NOT believe the bible to be the word of any god which might exist.

Those quotes from a couple of the founding fathers are just a couple of examples of people who believe in a god but who do not believe in the bible.

Do try to learn the difference between the two.

Well, technically, credit should go to Heron of Alexandria, born about 10 BCE...

"Heron describes not one, but two different automatic door applications. The first application used heat from a fire lit by the city's temple priest. After, a few hours atmospheric pressure built up in a brass vessel causing it to pump water into adjacent holding containers. These holding containers acted as weights, that through a series of ropes and pulleys would open the temple's doors, at just about the time people were to arrive for prayer. Heron used a similar application to open the gates to the city."
