Outer Space....and....who are you...


Recommended Posts

All,

 

So you two are saying science is absolute? Foolish boys! As Chesters1 and I would tell you NOTHING is 100% You can "process" bad science over and over and have the same results. Equally, no one has confirmed heaven despite repeated instructions how to get there.

 

Cory,

What makes you think God did not give us the Heimlich or the complete capacity of the human mind? This thread started essentially as a question about "in the beginning...." "chicken or the egg"

 

Ken,

 

Religion changes all the time. Even the Pope changed the Church position on evolution. As for biblical "changes" many denominations change with the discovery of evidence. Science and religion are closely intertwined. Since neither are 100% what's missing is FAITH. Frankly, I try to cover all bets and keep an open mind.

 

It bemuses me that it must be "either/or" for some people

It does seem too much to comprehend, what is out there beyond what us little earthlings can see.   We think we have a bit of understanding about the vast "universe" that surrounds us, but does it go

A simple "no" would have sufficed.

All,

I don't think God exists.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

As your countryman Mark Twain once put it:

“Faith is believing what you know ain't so.”

 

No faith is required for a worldview defined by natural philosophy, 2+2 = 4 whether you have faith in 4 or not.

COMETS TALE

Looks a bit like a cartoon to me ,why do programs insist on putting graphics on ,do they think we are morons who cannot grasp a concept without rubbish reinactments or computer created graphics ,i suppose its to bump up the 5 seconds of some bloke telling us the complete story

Why dont they just shut up until its done

 

I expect the media paid highly for the story of our mars lander ,it failed did they pay it back or was it the old no punishment for failure thats the trend today

Once its done and dusted and with enough proof it was done then they skies the limit for money

Edited by chesters1

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

None of this "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" crap it just means i have at least two enemies!

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

We have evolved brains well suited to intuitively grasping the physics of the sort of problems our ancestors had to solve. Time, distance, velocity, all on tiny scales. Basically the same sort of problems that a dung-hurling chimp solves. Our ambition and arrogance in trying to understand cosmology with our silly little ape brains is breathtaking. We shouldn't feel bad that we find it hard.

What is? How? Don't equivicate and try to change the subject. How do you think funding is done?

Funding is done from advertising ,i doubt it was done free or if it was there was an expectation of funds coming from its being aired ,or everyone was needy and self obsessed and would do anything to get on tv?

As i say we reward failure hopefully anything gained was returned especially if public taxes or lottery funding was involved

 

If ofcourse every penny was provided by those involved i would have no problem at all
