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.

It's hopeless, River.

Buck doesn't respond to logic.

And he makes up his own laws, and has a personal interpretation of the Constitution.

You're doing just fine with him.

Interesting, but I posted that for the quote in it.

Heh heh.

Bunch of stuff bouncing around in the mind and then a shower. Things come together.

Look at a drop of water acting as a lens. Put yourself in the middle looking outward. Might see a red shift in the distance. You will see a background haze of sorts.

Or something like that. Gets complicated.

Britain’s Prince George, who is celebrating his first birthday this week, is facing a rising chorus of criticism within the United Kingdom, with many calling the first year of his reign a major disappointment.

Alistair Strott, a journalist and one of George’s most outspoken critics, calls the Prince’s first year “long on hype and short on solid achievement.”

“Like a lot of us, I followed the royal birth last year with a great deal of excitement and anticipation,” says Strott.“But one year in, we all have to look at each other and say,‘That’s it?’”

While defenders of Prince George cite a packed schedule of events during his first year, Strott is unimpressed.“Yes, he’s been on TV and magazine covers,” he says.“So have the Kardashians.”

The journalist is not alone in criticizing Prince George, as a recent U.K. poll called his inaugural year the worst first year for a royal baby since the Second World War.

Strott acknowledged that George had spent much of his first year in office learning to walk, but added,“If he’s learned to talk, he certainly hasn’t said anything memorable.”

On most of the major issues facing Britain today, from unemployment to its relationship with the European Union,“George has been missing in action,” Strott says.

Buckingham Palace has already started the drumbeat of publicity for Prince George’s second year, but Strott remains skeptical.“People can call this child ‘royal’ if they like, but the word I’d choose is ‘overrated,’” he says.

“The eye has it...”

You cant subtract an infinite amount from a infinity, you can only subtract a finite amount.
To subtract infinity from infinity takes a infinite amount of time, so you would be talking about the same infinity.....Infinite box's within an infinity is the same infinity filled with box's..
It's possible an infinite box could have a a infinite box inside it, as long as they are not casually connected, but if you went inside the second box , you could never escape it., After all that us exactly what black holes are.,

So the universe has no physical dimension?

I see. Thanks, man.

But wait. You argue that it does have a physical dimension - distance.

But the physical dimension of its distance has no physical dimension.

I see. Thanks again, man.

So a box the size of the universe at this instant would not be able to contain the universe at this instant.

I see. Thanks, man.

And the physical extent of the universe at the next instant could not contain the physical extent of the universe at this instant, or a previous instant.

I see. Those are some weird physical dimensions you have there.

Thanks, man.

Because it's infinite.

But if it's physically infinite, then a physical infinite could contain it.

No? Oh,... I see. Because there can be no physical infinite.

Wrong. There is a purpose for having borders.

Put another way, borders have a purpose.

With your state, the purpose of the border is to let businesses know when they have moved far enough eastward.

Keep talking, Aura. Those men in white are ice cream guys coming to give you some. Put your hands out.

Black holes have been observed emitting jets at right angles. That is a kind of normal physical phenomenon in the transfer of energy.

Yeah, sure Counselor.

Did you see how cleverly I "made up" that law defining refugees, and pretended it was copied from section 101(a)(42) of the Immigration and Nationality Act?

Devious, huh?

Gamma ray bursts aren't coming from inside the black hole, they come from plasma surrounding the event horizon, that is accelerated to near the speed of light . If the black hole is unable to digest this material, it's space/time frame snaps back in a temporal explosion.

How deep is a black hole? Why the vortex? What direction does the vortex turn? Is the gravitational attraction equal in all directions or in a beam?
