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.

If only there was a way to harness the power of Dave's wrong we could be energy independent and put the Saudi's out of business.

"The magnets are not what heats things up, they are used to produce the energy waves, electromagnetic energy specifically, that cause the atoms to become excited."

You will probably read that and think you made sense.

Remove the channeling of magnetism provided by those magnets, and what do you get? Cold coffee.

Magnetism and electricity start on the atomic scale. They add up if channeled properly. Biological cells are made of atoms. It's the EM force that gives them the heebie jeebies so they can move and do things. Excess or deficient charge starts an exchange of EM energy. Motion in a magnetic field induces a charge and movement called electricity. Electricity induces a magnetic field.

Take some iron tablets, then use those speaker magnets.

Just to warm it up a tad. I hate really hot coffee.

However, I do take care to hold it a moment, and say a few magic numbers of Polymath's to shoo away his virtual particles. They can upset my tummy.

Oh the irony, that is actually a survival skill, meaning someone capable of doing that knows how to live off the land without the use of modern technology and the wonderful things science has brought us, the very science you deny. Yes, I do know how to cook that way, as well as trap my own food with various methods and build a protective structure from wood lying about. I also know how to survive in a hole in the snow, or under a shrub in the desert. I know how to harvest water from a cactus, and how to protect from dangerous animals that like to eat humans. I can also tell you which way north is from inside a cavern system, and be correct within 10 degrees. I can tell the hour of the day from the Sun's position as well, a useful skill even in the modern era actually. I learned all this because I was raised Mormon and my father was a huge fan of survivalism, he even had a $200 fishing pole, and I was the only one of the kids allowed to even touch it without him smacking their hands. I even learned how to tie my own flies, he loved having a tag along because he was a true father and had to teach everything he knew to one of his kids, even a girl.

The alkaloids in cactus can give you the shits, dehydrating the hell out of you, and killing you faster than if you had not harvested the water. That's what I was taught by the Army, anyhow. I had no interest in drinking cactus juice after learning that.

Do you sleep on train tracks in the desert to protect against snakes?

Not necessarily true, but they may help.

Step out into the sun. Put a finger tip out and feel its heat. Take any old cheap ass little magnifying glass and put it between the sun and your fingertip so you get a focused beam of light. Feel the heat now.

What is light? What does the magnifying glass do?

There are a variety of methodologies to focus energy.

For your information, the term is now "global climate change".

Go ahead and keep denying it.

We'd expect nothing less from you.

It changes the speed of light inside the glass, making for a longer phase path, which produces refraction. The curve of the glass makes it so the refraction from different light paths is focused.

And there are various forms of energy. The glass affects the electric field (NOT the same as electricity) of the light.

There are various names given to various methods of energy transfer. Energy is motion, nothing more.

Electric fields add up to electric currents if given a path to follow, meaning low resistance relative to the charge buildup.

People are taught the glass bends light rays by popular depiction so that it gives an idea to the masses. The light wave actually adds energy to the glass structure, the glass structure then discharges that excess to the fingertip according to its structure. The same happens to us.

The Bible also describes things designed for the masses to understand, even though not exact.

There is nothing dishonest about Pulmonary Resuscitation.
"breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.”
You call mouth to nose resuscitation magic?
CPR is a three step process known as the ABC. Airway, Breathing and then Circulation. Always in that order. If Pulmonary Resuscitation is all that is needed then circulation has already been established.
Mouth to nose in a lump of clay is just plain stupid.

And the latest CPR guidelines say Compressions, Airway, Breathing, in that order.

It is no longer ABC. It is now CAB.
