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.

And how does science disprove any of that?

Correct, no false beliefs to clutter your life. Isn't it amazing that we can still have compassion for our fellow brothers and sister on this planet, and not running around raping every women we see. All without a mythical being controlling our lives. Just how DO we do it!!!

Should we gay an old science book about star formation? You know, back when they "knew" the Milky Way was the universe?
Or should we get a newer one, where they "know" more about gravity & hydrogen?
Or should we wait for a future science book where they'll "know" even more?
All Cosmological evidence point to clouds of dust and gas which gradually coalesced under the influence of its overall gravitational field. The gravitational field intensified steadily as material condensed, thus hastening further condensation.

This condensation produced out present sun, but it isn't likely that it did so in one smooth process. There must have been subcondensations formed so that there was a stage during the formation of the solar system where there were innumerable chunks of icy or rocky material--colliding, gorging, breaking up, recoalescing, and so on, and most of it gradually ending up in the central body.

As the coalescing Sun turns faster and faster, the centrifugal effects that tend to throw outward form the center grow marked, particularly where the rate of turn is greatest--at the equatorial region of the coalescing body. As the Sun progresses toward its formation, it becomes an ellipsoid, with matter jutting far out from the equatorial regions in the form of a thinning sheet.

The matter within this equatorial regional sheet can coalesce to form conglomerations of matter smaller than the central body---conglomerations that will continue to move about the Sun caught in the grip of that body's strong gravitational field and themselves separated by great enough distances from the Sun and from each other to be safe from collisions or near collisions that would alter their orbits drastically. And thus we end with planets circling the Sun.........So, now you know!!!!

Okay Dave which theory of the origin of the universe is based on gravity alone?
I may be wrong, and it's fine if I am, but I suspect Dave will let this post and his expected response to get "lost in the ever changing EM graviometrimagnetonomicron " plasmathingie of stringythingeory".

Or something like that.

So how would one get the gas into liquid form?

That's nothing compared to the NT's attempt to remarket the foul tempered OT god. "Let's invent satan to explain why our god isn't a total bastard after all."

I love christmas! It is one of the best pagan rituals we follow!
You know the routine:
Evergreens in the house = pagan.
Celebrating the Winter Solstice = pagan
So on and so forth...
Xmas has been a secular holiday for a long time and it has never been christian.
Not so down under.....

We celebrate in the Summer Solstice as such... however, many Pagans of course, evolved and became Christians and celebrate Christmas. Probably many Pagans are not even aware that their ancestors, who were not monkeys, celebrated anything at all :)

Atheists often attribute God with human characterists and/or flaws. They do this so they can pretend to scientifically scrutinize Him. That's why they call Him skydaddy, say He's an old white man with a long white beard & say that He lives in the clouds....

When you say, "Not so down under....", are you talking about the Aboriginal people or the white settlers?

I am certain that the Aboriginal Australians did not celebrate jesus' birthday.

Pagans did not evolve into christians, they were mostly converted by torture.
