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. Read more

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".

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."

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 :)

So lets say I am heating superglue...

How do I get the cyanide gas into a liquid/solid form that I can actually feed an enemy...errr I mean just have some fun with?

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.

I wonder how many "atheists" they can a year nowadays.

They used to be organic, and each a little different flavor, individually wrapped.

Now you grab one off the shelf, pull the tab, and pour them in a bowl. Then season heavily.

That mushy plopping sound emptying the can is a little disconcerting. Makes you think you should do it in the bathroom, and not the kitchen.

I have to get through the Thanksgiving festivities first. Picture a large table in a sterile dining room. 30 or so people dining on the carcasses of 5 large birds. My favorite chef (in the whole world) brings me a plate of wild rice, wild mushrooms and asparagus. Furtive glances my way, "is she sane now"?
Fun.
Some people do not understand that "Sane" does not mean to be like them. all " sane" really means is the ability to fit reasonably into society with out causing harm.
