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.

Normally lecturers wouldn't just be on spring break. How come those still studying don't have you there for them while on spring break?
Yes, professors are off for spring break also. No, professors are generally 'not available' over spring break.

Correct!
God is outside of laws (his laws) of the universe. time does not exist where he is so there would be no date.
Jimmy got one right!

But in a vacuum you're saying frequency makes no difference?[/QUOTE]

Frequency makes no difference to the speed in a vacuum.

Correct.

Yeah sure, in a vacuum the speed of light is constant. But underwater the speed of light is a different constant. In an atmosphere the speed of light is a different constant. In a nebula the speed of light is a different constant.
I hope you learned something today
I did, but not from you.

I knew those things.

Ever hear of a prism?

Or a rainbow?

Th reason for the various colors is that different wavelengths travel at different speeds through various media.

No biggie.

Elementary school stuff.

Red is slower because the galaxy is moving away. Blue is faster because the galaxy is moving towards us.
Red = Slower
Blue = Faster
[/QUOTE]

Wrong.

The light from galaxies moving away is travelling at c, but the wavelength is stretched out.

The light from galaxies moving towards us travels at c, but the wavelength is compressed.

Longer wavelenths=redshift.

Shorter wavelengths=blueshift.

Why would it work that way, idiot? Apparently you think all light originates from earth.

No they haven't.
Detecting a things supposed effects is different from detecting the thing.
Not really.

Unless, apparently, you refer to a deity.

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.

Yes it is and if a light is moving up and down (frequency) a hundred times more often then another light can they make the same distance in the same amount of time?[/QUOTE]Yes.

At this point keeping track of all if his errors is a useless endeavor as they keep piling up.

Sadly his ignorance is a willful ignorance not just mere not knowing.
