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.

Nothing heavier than iron exists in stars.
All of the elements heavier than iron are formed in supernova explosions when the shock wave from the supernova slams into previously ejected elements.
Like your silly evolution of chemicals in your big bang theory? Idiot! You are saying without evidence a supernova is a mini big bang?

Helium didn't come from oxygen and so on, they didn't evolve in your silly big bang.

Not quite true. The heavier elements can be picked up from the gas and dust clouds when stars form. This happens for second and third generation stars.

Again, not quite true. The heavier elements form inside the star during the generation of the supernova shock wave, not in the shock wave hits the previously ejected materials.
Apparently you think stars occured from the big bang.
You even correct your own no. 1 teammate just to feel authoritive and could about yourself and your little ego.

Actually, oxygen came from helium.

Again, not quite true. The heavier elements form inside the star during the generation of the supernova shock wave, not in the shock wave hits the previously ejected materials.
Actually, I've seen both cases mentioned.

The elements form in layers, like an onion.

Once they reach iron, fusion stops, as iron absorbs energy. Gravity, as it is no longer being countered by the energy of fusion, wins the battle and the star collapses on itself.

That collapse happens in a matter of seconds and the shock of the collapse explodes the star.

Some of the heavier elements form during the collapse, some from the explosion and some from the previously ejected gasses.

Of course, this is oversimplified, but I think it's got the basics.

Apparently the Periodic Table is also a mystery to you.

Out of curiousity, have you ever attended any science class anywhere?

Oxygen didn't. You're silly science only says it did during the big bang.

Iron can't absorb every type of energy.

No, actually, it is pretty clear about oxygen NOT being made during the Big Bang.

Only hydrogen, some helium and traces of lithium came directly from the Big Bang.

All of the heavier elements had to wait until after stars formed.

In a vacuum? All 'colors', including ones like infra-red, radio waves, ultra-violet, x-rays, etc.

So if a car was traveling at 299,792,458 m/s and turned on its headlights would that light then be traveling twice that speed? Of would its lights never leave the bulb?

Since you can't get a massive object (like the car) to move at the speed of light, the question is nonsense.

Now, if the car was going at 299,792,457 meters per second past you, you would see the light as moving at 1 meter per second away from the car and the car would see it as moving at 299,793,458 meters per second away from it.

You haven't seen my car!

All light.

Light is just another name for electromagnetic radiation.

Visible light is the tiny part of the spectrum of wavelengths that we can see with our eyes.

It all travels at c in a vacuum.

Different wavelengths travel at different velocities through different media.
