We don't know of any absence before the Big Bang.
We don't even know that the Big Bang happened, it's a mathematical assumption.
We also don't know if dark matter exists, it can't be seen or tested in any way, but it "explains" so much. Huh...
We DO know that something cannot come from nothing.
No one knows what came before the Big bang, and yes the Big Bang is a fact and it is NOT a mathematical assumption, the effects of the big bang, just like the effects of emotions can be observed. Cosmologist KNOW that dark matter exists, they can examine the..........yep, you guessed it, effects. So one-----two----three---yer out!!!!!! Next batter!!!!!

Not at all-- I would penalize him for CHEATING on his ill-gotten income.
He is a cheat-- like most ReThuglican super-rich, he hides his real wealth out of the US.
Even though he **got** his wealth on the backs of the exploited.
And I **would** penalize him for **that**
You can't penalize him.

All you can do is run to the end of your chain and bark.

No, that isn't my contention.

My contention is that there are many things that happen that science can't explain or prove.

Emotions are one of them.

God is another.

You are why this country is in economic decline-- you sit complacently by, while evil men take from the poor and middle class, and give it to the richest-of-the-rich (people such as Romney).

Mitt-the-twitt did **nothing** to gain his ill-gotten wealth.

It was given to him-- he's just a taker, and contributes nothing of value to anything.

This is the case for the majority of the super-rich-- they did **nothing** to get rich, they just take and take and take.

And morons like YOU? You think that is just FINE.

Because, you know, Jesus was so full of admiration for the super-rich.

Right?

Right...

LMAO!

Just because **you** are so incredibly ignorant of science and the scientific findings regarding emotions?

You think that science cannot prove they exist, or has nothing to say about them--

-- because **you** are too stupid to understand?

LMAO!

No **wonder** you are a god-robot!

It is a mathematical assumption, nothing more. It's not like scientists can go back in time and observe it, all they can do is see an infinitesimal part of the universe and try to come with an explanation for it. They call it the BBT.

They used to call it the steady state theory. That used to be "fact", too. But even the BBT has it's problems. Try explaining the horizon problem, the flatness problem, and the magnetic monopole problem. I dare you.

Dark matter is a hypothesis. It's not even a theory but you call it fact.

Your beliefs are showing....

You and your lies... too funny!

You probably think Mitt **deserves** the millions of dollars he embezzled from the middle class...

.... LMAO!

But if you ask Mitt real nice? I bet he'd share some of those millions with you, right?

Because you and he worship the same god, right?

LMAO!

Oh, it is so cute when you try to sound all "sciency" like the above.

It is so very **funny**!

When...**exactly** will this "finding" occur?
I sought for more than 40 years-- and never even one time, did your "god of all" bother to show up.
So....**WHEN**?
Seriously... your claims are utterly without merit.
Your particular case is much different than your fellow Atheist. In your case there was a radical event that triggered your extreme bitterness. That event you have kept hidden from the topix community.

You must have done something really bad. Obviously you were shunned because of what you did. Your bitterness turned to hate and you denied the very God you once worshipped.

Bob, that was the road you decided to go down. I still think God can forgive you but your stubborn pride is standing in the way.

Governor Romney has wealth he accumulated from hard work. He had an excellent foundation early in his life with a good education and work ethic. They just don’t accept anyone into Harvard. The man graduated with a masters degree in business.

His family didn’t have 200 years of great wealth. His father had nothing during the great depression and worked very hard to achieve success. The Romney family has had great success and are wealthy today. But not as wealthy as Bill Gates whom you admire so much.

Bob some people work hard for their wealth and Mitt is one of those people. Unlike for example someone who won millions playing a one dollar lottery.

You explained that the spas and other things were all male and all nude. And you made a point to share that there was great diversity among the nude men you were bathing with. How did that add to the experience for you compared to for example if all the guys were of one ethnicity?
Why was it noteworthy enough to you to mention that there was great diversity among the nude guys you were bathing with?

The road to prosperity is called,“Education.”

For some who learning is easy.

For others they have to work extremely hard at it.

Don’t be envious Bob of those who went down the right road and worked hard to succeed.

I'm not envious of theft, extortion and other economic abuse.

Mitt the Twitt has been shown to be all of the above and worse.

He does not deserve his ill-gotten wealth; the many people he trampled on to get it, are still suffering from his actions.

But you?

You think that is just peachy-keen.

Because, you know, Jesus was so polite to the super-rich.

Right?

..... riiiiight.
