Oh please. There's a clear difference in crime rates if you compare the pro-gun and anti-gun states. There's also a clear difference in telephone rates. To quote Twain, there are lies, there are damned lies, and then there are statistics. By your logic, if more guns == less crime, then the middle ea...

With the line about the fed saying his dad "wasn't a right parent" because he was dead broke, that's the first real jab at the fed's I've seen that isn't directly taken from Firefly. Not-so subtle political commentary there.

Re: OT: Infinite Energy, Atlantis, and other meme's

1) Speaking as a physics major, that level of stupidity is just plain offensive. This is not the first time that you've charecterized your personal credentials. Right. In any event, I am not a doctor, I am an intern. Would you care to comment on your inconsistent presentation? If you would be a phy...

It actually has to do with people revolting and rising up against others for more reasons than religion. Theocracies are there because the people want them to be. Pretty much EVERYONE in the region is a Muslim, so I fail to see why they should not have a Muslim government. It's almost 99% Muslim (G...

There's no such thing as an evangelical athiest. First, because the term "evangelical" refers to a belief in god, so even if Atheism was a religion, it cannot be evangelical, because it dosn't involve a god. Second, because atheism is not a belief, it is a lack of belief. Ergo, not a religion. Obvi...

1. But it was originally thought by scientists that light cannot be affected by anything. Period. Black Holes changed this. As a friendly physics prof told me, "Black Holes are where the rules seem to break down. Under our current understanding of it, a Singularity should not be able to exist witho...

People being exploited rising up and being willing to stand up to gunfire and tanks even with impossible odds... Korea maybe? Vietnam? Russia? Afgh...

1. Black Holes have to have a weight limit as eventually, if they become denser and denser, their rotation speed would exceed the speed of light. If this is true, they obviously cannot get any denser than a certain point or they would become light and disintegrate. No, it's not! I assume you mean t...

-America has exploited poorer countries, as has most of the Western world, for the better of a century now. So has China. Hell, China has exploited them a lot worse then we have recently, they don't hate them. -America has sent troops into a nation of ignorant and poorly educated people, fired the ...

1. If the speed of light is a universal constant, then Black Holes must have a weight limit. Where do you get this from? As to light speeding up in a material, theory states lights speed can NEVER be exceeded. Ever. Anywhere. No, it dosn't. It states the maximum speed of light in a vaccum can never...

Re: OT: Infinite Energy, Atlantis, and other meme's

FTL, by any theory we have, is either impossible or requires materials that most likely do not exist (so called 'exotic matter', which radiates antigravity so to speak). At least that's by any theories I've heard of, and being a huge fan of space travel and astrophysics, that's most plausible theor...

Dawkins, in an interview I saw, was himself bothered by the "fine-tuning" necessary for life to exist in the universe. The trouble is it is hard to see how such a universe could "evolve"...you got to get it right the first time. He suggested there is a foam-like "multiverse" of universe bubbles eac...

That's not what I meant. I believe that we may someday discover proof of God's existence. In the meantime, we have people like you who insist it is not only untrue but a "lie," which, in the parlance I know, means that people know it's untrue even as they say it. Skepticism I can take; that level o...

But Atheism is a distructive [sic] belief, as indicated by....gee, I don't know, the entire Communist world, The French Reign of Terror, the Killing Fields, etc. Therefore it is false (bad) and dangerous (bad), and so we'd be better off without it.
