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.

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.
Apparently the Periodic Table is also a mystery to you.

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

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.
fair enough.

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.

[/QUOTE]

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.

Well, there's this.
"I set My rainbow in a cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant [promise] between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh." - Genesis 9:13-15.
It was soon after that the Leprechauns started their hiding pots of gold at the end of the rainbow.
But, we know the world wasn't destroyed by a "worldwide biblical deluge". We know "all flesh" wasn't destroyed by the biblical deluge.
It is myth. Just like Leprechauns are myth, too.
Science has a good record for being able to detect reality.
Science really can't detect or verify unreality.
It's funny that everyone always thinks *current* science is correct.

Science used to know that the universe was infinite.

Science used to know that the Milky Way is the universe.

Science used to know that insects come from rotting foods.

And the people of the times knew science was right....

Just like you do today.

Then that would be to the closest cm?

You are continually confirming your stupidity as well as your dishonesty.
You continually and intentionally change words in others' arguments in your feeble attempts to discount them.
That kind of dishonesty is your admission of defeat.
Detect=/=see.

Perhaps your atheist thought blocking techniques stopped you from reading my post in detail.

I said that dark matter and black holes have not been seen "in any way".

Which implies more than just visually (that means seen from the eyes.....).
