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.

Unless, apparently, you refer to a deity.
Right.

So the smell of shit is evidence of shit?

The feeling of hear is evidence of heat?

A hillbilly's photo of a UFO is evidence of aliens?

Gimme a break, man.

Yes. Light moves slower underwater.

Strange that your athi-buddies didn't berate you for such a stupid question.

But then again, y'alls is on the same side.....

Main category: Religious demographics
Sources outside of Wikipedia give differing estimates:
The CIA's World Factbook gives the world population as 7,021,836,029 (July 2012 est.) and the distribution of religions as Christian 33.39%(of which Roman Catholic 16.85%, Protestant 6.15%, Orthodox 3.96%, Anglican 1.26%), Muslim 22.74%, Hindu 13.8%, Buddhist 6.77%, Sikh 0.35%, Jewish 0.22%, Baha'i 0.11%, other religions 10.95%, atheists 2.01%
persecution. A 2006 study by researchers at the University of Minnesotainvolving a poll of 2,000 households in theUnited States found atheists to be the most distrusted of minorities,
In 2012, an article entitled Atheism in decline by Nigel Tomes declared:
In 1970 atheists (those avowing there is no God) numbered 166 million worldwide; that was almost one-in-twenty—4.5% of the globe’s population. By 2012 atheists’ number is estimated at 137 million. That’s a decline of almost 30 million. Since world population is growing, atheists’ share declined to less than one-in-fifty—under 2% in 2012. Put differently, every 24 hours there are 800 fewer atheists in the world! Atheism is in decline.
Nigel Tomes also says,“According to history and geography, Shem, Noah's first son, was the forefather of the Hebrews, the Jews. Ham, his second son, was the forefather of the black people.

Yet stupid RR thinks he has made a very big observation. You didn't contribute one bit.

I think LL's constant asking of people's age & constant reminding of his "age" is evidence enough that he is not 59.

Have you ever heard of someone that age constantly asking about age?

I haven't.

I think LL is a baby boy, sitting in his room at mama's house, wasting his youth away playing online.

Actually, I don't speak about it anymore than boooots does about his 66, lol.

I talked to Just think on other threads, he rants all day and doesn't shut it, I'm bound to talk down to him and lose my temper. You did with me thinking that I was a kid. But Just think denied that he was a kid, so I was wondering if he was lying or not, Hmmm.
He never shuts up, everybody suspects he can't be any older than 20.

<quoted text>The frequency compresses apparently according to him because it is being blocked by the earth and being pressed onto it. Apparently according to AreoMoron it gets stretched out as it reaches into space freely. But you cannot provide proof that all energy or light comes from the earth.
The light FROM the galaxies travels at c, regardless of whether they are moving towards or away from us.

If they are moving away, the wavelength becomes stretched out.

Do you know what the Doppler effect is?

It is the same principle, only regarding sound.

A train approaching you has a higher pitched sound than when it is going away from you.

Try it sometime.

It works best if you stand between the tracks.

Once again, the speed of light *in a vacuum* is constant. It is *exactly* 299,792,458 meters per second and that does not depend on the frequency of the light.

Now, if light is moving through matter, that speed can change and it can also depend on the frequency of the light.

And your point is?

Depends on what it's traveling through.

In a vacuum, it is constant.

Smelling is one method of detecting, yes. Is it always conclusive? No. But if you smell it, there is a high likelihood it is around.

It is one method of detecting heat, yes. It is not always conclusive. But a calorimeter is a better way of detecting heat.
A hillbilly's photo of a UFO is evidence of aliens?
That would be one way of detecting aliens, but is highly unreliable. A better way would be to measure free oxygen in the atmosphere of another planet.
Gimme a break, man.
