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.

Its your duty to sh*t the f*ck up and demonstrate some morals by not lying to us about a god that simply does not exist.
I've never lied to you about a god that doesn't exist.... Get a grip.
You people are annoying, just f*ck off back to your caves and spreading your ridiculous mental illness to sane people.
I'm sorry, are you forced to be here, reading everyday about God?

I think that shows your innate curiosity that God is real. You're looking for answers.

That's a good start.

That won't provide historical proof for Jesus will it Dave? It is a standard Christian argument, one you being a Christian you are well versed on. Still it is a logical fallacy. We all know you gush over how you perceive the Jesus myth has in your words and opinion shaped the whole world! Lmfao!
But your opinion doesn't count as fact. The Jesus myth has hindered not helped mankind. It has stymied free thinkers since it was forced down the people's throat by Constantine.
Christians can't even figure out if Jesus was born in Mary and Joseph's house on Bethlehem or if they were living in Nazareth and stopped off in Bethlehem because Mary's water broke and she gave birth in a barn. Ah yes Jesus born beside piles of horsesht! Fitting no!

What is being projected from me again? Something about being sad?? Regardless of your lack of the English language Dave made the statement not me. I being a good sport am willing to give Dave a mulligan, a chance to take it back but he has to state that he wants to take it back. Otherwise he will continue to own it and will be reminded, frequently may I note, about his fetish for tying up men and sedating them.

You are already looking like a jackass for saying an unknown Arab man walked uninvited to your dying Dad's hospital room and converted him to believing in Allah.

Your Pope wants to speak directly to you, my people as you so deservedly need to hear from Your Pope.

Yesterday, Your Pope tendered his resignation as HEAD of the Holy Roman Catholic Church and has made arrangements for a New Pope to be installed within a month.

Your Pope has taken such actions personally, because Your Pope has become fragile and the Holy Roman Catholic Church always needs its HEAD to be astute in Body and Soul 'all the time'.

For those of you who are a little lost by Your Pope's actions (a Pope has not resigned in nearly 600 years), do Not despair. Your Pope knows that your Holy Roman Catholic Church wil continue to be as it has always been.....with Truth, Honesty, Humbleness, and Kindness in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Filled with members who want to help and assist the Needy, the Desperate, the Blind and the Insane in all countries and towards all cultures, and to Keep the Commandments of Christ, Our Lord, ONE in Being with the Father and the Holy Spirit.

And so, Your Pope wants to thank you all for your kindness over the past eight years and especially for your Prayers in times of Need by Your Pope.

Carry on in the Spirit of Our Lord. Forgiveness is your greatest Goodness. Do Good to those who hate you, Bless those who persecute you, and most of all Love One Another.

GOD Bless You All.

Et nominee Patri, et Felio Dei, etSpirituo Sancti, Amen.

Your Pope in Obedience to Christ.

Pope Benedict XVI

I'd just like it if we had actual secular historical proof he existed.

Jesus Ben strada the so called evil Egyptian sorcerer messiah made proper historical note by actual living secular historians who lived when he did and seen the man.

Jesus of Nazareth? Nope.

Going into full meltdown now after you let it slip about you dreaming about tying men up and sedating them? You said it, own it.

Dave just say you take it back and want a mulligan, you are only making yourself look worse otherwise.

By offering you a mulligan I am being beyond generous and kind. Your dithering is so bad today I am starting to pity you.

Oh, Chunky, you make me so hot.

Male or female, or whatever you really are, reading your words just gives me a huge erection and the desire to share it with you to shut you up.

I bet you do that to all the guys.

Salutations need not be complete sentences.

I thought you said common sense is better than education.

I took that to mean that you lack the latter.

In which case, you should at least show some common sense!

Good question.
Your answer?
It's not a good question. It's a question that's been answered countless times. And every time, the answer is ignored in favor of some pop-psychology or conspiracy theorist-type nonsense.

Why do skeptics rail against Christianity?

Answer: Christian superstition is viewed as a negative influence on society. It must be confronted, as this is the best way of defeating superstition.
Nonsense: Uh, whatever, you just love sinning or you're possessed by demons.

Why do skeptics rail against Anti-Vaxxers?

Answer: Anti-vaxxers are a negative influence on society by reducing vaccination levels. Their misinformation must be confronted.
Nonsense: Uh, whatever, you just love making kids sick or you work for Big Pharma.

Why do skeptics rail against Moon Hoaxers?

Answer: Moon Hoaxers are making factually incorrect statements about history and science, which is bad. Those statements must be confronted.
Nonsense: Uh, whatever, you're just sheep or you're a NASA shill in on the conspiracy.

It's so tired.

Free fall is nothing but scooting out of the way of a direct line of acceleration. However, you just move into another line on a continuous basis. A tangential resistance. Believe or not, there is also a straight line aspect to that movement. Your motion has to actually counter gravity. Instead of a perfect circle, you have a series of straight lines. Sort of sawtoothed, but very fine. It could make it appear as a wave.
You still have the force of gravity. It's a law or something.
A trip to Mars means the sun will be the strongest attraction for a good ways.
Gravity works on the molecular level on humans. One of the things that keeps it together and functioning properly. You can not duplicate that on a spacecraft. Just not enough mass and directions being tugged on.
I kind of figured you didn't really understand it when you made the erroneous comment about LEO (low Earth orbit) being 90% less gravity effect than sea level.

At sea level the pull of gravity is 9.81 m/s^2.
At leo it's 9 m/s^2.

Freefall is just that - falling.

No different that skydiving EXCEPT

1. there is no atmospheric drag (okay, some on the orbiter, but not on the people inside); AND

2. the forward momentum of the vehicle is great enough to miss hitting the Earth as it constantly *falls* around the Earth (about 7.8 km/s).
