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.

I'm currently running Mint 13 with Cinnamon on my desktop. Migrated when Ubuntu came out with Unity (I definitely agree someone needs to be slapped-repeatedly). My netbook runs Lubuntu 12.04. I have several distros (Fuduntu, Mageia, Fedora, Gentoo, etc) on virtual boxes just to play around with them and keep up. I went through Linux From Scratch, but didn't keep it as my main system. My router runs DD-WRT and I have a virtual box running Open-WRT. I've also played with Tomato on an old router. I have a partition with Win7 that I never use except under duress.
i use ubuntu 12.04 with Unity and like some parts of it (you need a footstool to slap me)

That's all I'm saying.
Wrong again.

Without qualifiers, that statement is patently false.

In any uniform medium, light's speed is constant.

You made the rules.

Now play by them or admit you were wrong.

Virtual particles are nothing but math constructs to handle the error in the original theory.

Sweet pea, if particles can float in and out of existence, then so can you as a relatively intelligent entity. A soul occupying time and space for a while?

Science proves the existence of life beyond death. Read the parable of the mustard seed. Branches are provided for the fowls of the air to roost in. That includes bird brains like you.

RR is pretty naive. Observing for 16 years brings insight into many things, whether in the world, politics, or observing movement and patterns of what goes on in the universe outer space.

From one medium to the next, light's speed is different.

In a *uniform medium", it is constant.

In "unumiform mediums", it is not constant.

There isn't enough head injuries in the world for that. Seriously you can tell he really thinks he is the smartest guy in the room all the while braying like Buck.

It's funny watching him day in day out get factually destroyed by a half dozens posters.

Riverside Redneck thinks humility means thinking of people are better than him. He beliefs that also in order to feel better about being an idiot.

Also, Riverside Redneck refers to people who think low of him or are against him patronizingly, and thinks of them as worthless, kids, ect, in order to feel superior in his mind.

Totally irrelevant, knucklehead. That isn't the cause, anyhow.

How can you have a strictly material universe, whcih you belief is the sole source of your intelligence and existence, and have "virtual particles" floating in and out of it? To you it would likely makes sense.

Do "virtual particle" detection and studies on humans.

BTW, your cranial cavity would be a great place for those Casimir effect experiments. No vacuum pump needed.
