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.

From our knowledge of present-day organisms and the molecules they contain, it seems likely that the development of the directly autocatalytic mechanisms fundamental to living systems began with the evolution of families of molecules that could catalyze their own replication. With time, a family of cooperating RNA catalysts probably developed the ability to direct synthesis of polypeptides. DNA is likely to have been a late addition: as the accumulation of additional protein catalysts allowed more efficient and complex cells to evolve, the DNA double helix replaced RNA as a more stable molecule for storing the increased amounts of genetic information required by such cells.

DNA is likely to have been a late edition.

We'll add your post to things the Riverside Easter Bunny Pulled Out His Ass file. Dave angels on will be happy. He's a poo-flinging, preposterous, paranoid, psychopath. But, he is not a documented prevaricator like you, Easter Bunny.

Mankind is a collection of individual beings and minds. They need a common denominator to function as a group. However, hive mentalities such as yours just follow the directions issued you. Of course, anything counter to that would be evil and a conspiracy. Pure reaction.
The irony of your meaningless discourse escapes you. The shaman is the oldest profession in the book. Soft-handed and no honest work is required to be the mouthpiece for the sky wizard. Religion is all about power. It always has been; it always will be. Religion was useful in the early evolution of mankind, but it has outlived its shelflife.

If so, you would know that the other poster said that in order for one to obtain "evidence", you have to "take the ride". He said that one needs to die in order to obtain this evidence.

Are you really that dense or just stupid?
So, the Christian is advocating suicide for evidence for a deity. Thus, the Christian has no evidence, just nonsense.

When he wrote it, I took it to mean that once the evidence for a god was seen, a life-long believer was made, hence the one way ride. Thank you for clarifying that his intent was much more immoral, much more nefarious, and much more facile.

Preachers sell a product they never have to deliver. Christians promise evidence they never can deliver.

Church attendance is dropping precipitously. Only 17% of American attend church on any given Sunday. While, yes, some churches may have been replaced, the majority of abandoned churches have been that, literally abandoned. Any time a fraud factory closes, it's a step in the right direction.

Just when it appeared as though you couldn't slime down further into the imbecilic ooze, you are now parroting the Riverside Easter Bunny, King of Topix Losers, the Prevaricating Parrot of Puerile Pointlessness.

The poster's point was that something is not known until it is discovered, not that it doesn't exist until it is discovered. Hell, that's the whole point of your religious scam. You can tag team with the Witless Wrestler. It suits you. Actually, Trog, you, the Riverside Easter Bunny, and Georgio Armani Crick could remake the Three Stooges shorts. After all, you're already dope slapping reality and each other with every jot and tittle.

<quoted text>While I agree his point is unimportant, you are purposefully obfuscating it, Easter Bunny. It's okay, that is expected with someone of zero credibility.

Time actually didn't exist until discovered by humans, because we developed a system to measure what we call time.

http://discovermagazine.com/2007/jun/in-no-ti...

No one keeps track of time better than Ferenc Krausz. In his lab at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching, Germany, he has clocked the shortest time intervals ever observed. Krausz uses ultraviolet laser pulses to track the absurdly brief quantum leaps of electrons within atoms. The events he probes last for about 100 attoseconds, or 100 quintillionths of a second. For a little perspective, 100 attoseconds is to one second as a second is to 300 million years.

But even Krausz works far from the frontier of time. There is a temporal realm called the Planck scale, where even attoseconds drag by like eons. It marks the edge of known physics, a region where distances and intervals are so short that the very concepts of time and space start to break down. Planck time—the smallest unit of time that has any physical meaning—is 10-43 second, less than a trillionth of a trillionth of an attosecond. Beyond that? Tempus incognito. At least for now.

The trouble with time started a century ago, when Einstein’s special and general theories of relativity demolished the idea of time as a universal constant. One consequence is that the past, present, and future are not absolutes. Einstein’s theories also opened a rift in physics because the rules of general relativity (which describe gravity and the large-scale structure of the cosmos) seem incompatible with those of quantum physics (which govern the realm of the tiny).

Some four decades ago, the renowned physicist John Wheeler, then at Princeton, and the late Bryce DeWitt, then at the University of North Carolina, developed an extraordinary equation that provides a possible framework for unifying relativity and quantum mechanics. But the Wheeler-­DeWitt equation has always been controversial, in part because it adds yet another, even more baffling twist to our understanding of time.

“One finds that time just disappears from the Wheeler-DeWitt equation,” says Carlo Rovelli, a physicist at the University of the Mediterranean in Marseille, France.“It is an issue that many theorists have puzzled about. It may be that the best way to think about quantum reality is to give up the notion of time—that the fundamental description of the universe must be timeless.”

I realize this will be too much for you, but, alas, it is what it is, Easter Bunny.
The Planck interval is the amount of time it take light to travel the diameter of a proton.

Purty short.

A-yup.

I could now produce a very long list of things that no one knew exited until they were discovered, but you seem to have a massive cognition problem. Believe it or not I explained this concept to my 6 year old granddaughter, guess what?....Yep she understood.
Now you should feel completely embarrassed, but I think your too stupid to even understand just why you should be embarrassed.

Carbon. Not dirt puffed into existence by a magical man that has turned into just an entity of energy, over time, as Christians have to change their descriptions due to materialistic naturalism.

I make no claims of abiogenesis. Keep lying. It suits you.

No, that is not what I wrote, and your misrepresentation is further dishonesty. I gave you the relevant link. Our concept of the clock is an arbitrary standard that we developed. Time may not exist, at all.

Do you play the fool in the real world or do you reserve it for here?
