Polly, I understand physics pretty well. But there is a difference between your physics and mine. Yours is a study of number relationships, mine is a study of processes and interaction. Mine turns into intuition, yours is staring at a chalkboard. If the need arises for a quick fix to keep surviving, which do you think would likely survive?

I donít take sofpedia as a source but thanks anyway, It does say what I already knew, I am particularly good at what I do (3D artist and animator) because I am Dyslexic and so more spatially aware than average.
I was not diagnosed until I was 14 and prescribed tinted/prismatic glasses. The day I received them a new world opened, letters came together to make words and I began reading avidly (still do), went on to college, then uni, opened a business (with my husband) that is still small but successful and international.
I hope you have a handle on it, it can be a problem when faced with people who donít understand. Itís the reason I am not christian, when I was a child the congregation at my church, even the minister ridiculed me. I saw the minister a couple of years ago, he tracked me down after 30 years to apologise. Nice of him really and being as cynical as I am I suppose it now helps him sleep at night.
Even today in this supposedly enlightened age there are a few people who love to mock disability, no matter what that disability is, funnily enough I still find that itís christians (or claimed christians) who seem to get most enjoyment from displaying such disdain.
So, are these Christians you like to mock and disdain, are they dumb and disabled as you were, or just inherently evil?

It's my eyes, Dave. Even when I close them the images still persist. So far, it's easier to keep them open. I can't stand it when I close my eyes.

MRI mean anything to you? We have had this discussion before and you eventually agreed the MRI can detect emotions, however I see you have gone the typical fundy route of ignoring that and starting again at the beginning in the hope that it may turn out differently, dream on.

Black holes/ultra dense masses are easy to detect indirectly, observing them is a different matter. It is inferred from the movement of the stars at the centre of our galaxy that we rotate around a black hole. Thatís science detecting a black hole that is.

Dark matter now is easy to detect, in the last 2 years this aspect of science has made leaps and bounds. In the sections of the universe that have been measured It is now known that dark matter comprises of 5/6th of the mass of the (measured section) of the universe, as predicted.

The only ones in your list that science canít detect are the guesses. Do souls exist? Do aliens exist? Of course there is considerably more probability that aliens exist but probability is not science.

Somewhat behind the scientific times arenít you?

Love, hate and jealousy cannot be detected by science, MRI or not.

You are missing plenty. AND taking more scripture out of context.
What does Jesus mean when HE says to hate?
Is there a biblical dictionary somewhere?
In this context, yes there is.
In Genesis chapter 29, the story of Jacob, Rachel, and Leah. If you read, study and understand Genesis 29, you'll understand that in this context to be "hated" is to be loved less than another.
I don't expect you to understand.
You're atheist goggles are too thick.

Gee, I wonder why he's promoting lies?

Oh wait, I know. I just had to peruse your link.

"Kip Thorne, professor emeritus at California Institute of Technology, offered some ideas in his 1993 book, "Black Holes and Time Warps: Einstein's Outrageous Legacy," which made him famous in black hole circles.

"He's actually working on a Hollywood movie right now with Steven Spielberg,"

Looks like ol' Kippy's got his eyes on the prize instead of facts.

Look, I know atheists like to play with words and sometimes make up definitions as they go along. But that's not how the rest of the world works (you know, the other 99% of us).
There is no "how do I define dead", there is just the definitions of dead.
On this topic, dead means no longer living.
Like Jesus.(If he ever was.)

Hiding behind christianity to mock disability is a sad personality trait you have there.

Man up, come out of the closet and say what you really mean.

I know, that's all you atheists do is twist the Bible to mean whatever you want it to mean.
