Re: Rebuilding Notre Dame vs. Helping the Poor

Idiotic question. Notre Dame is a miracle of HUMAN achievement. Are you suggesting that people will starve if it's restored? People were starving to death before, will starve to death during that just another clay and mortar building is restored, and people will continue to starve after it is resto...

Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

Atla. The "olbers-paradox" from the explanation I just read, to me, says that the light from the more distant stars is dimmed because they are receding from the observer as the universe expands. But you just said that overall light does NOT diminish but instead spreads out. So, which one is True? Yo...

Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

Overall light doesn't diminish, it just spreads out, so we would have infinite brightness. If that is what you BELIEVE, then okay. Here it's a fact, not a belief, idiot. If you say so. So, if, say I was trillions and trillions and trillions of trillions of light years away from you on earth, and I ...

Re: Cultural Relativism is wrong

Stop calling them "nazis" for a start, then you will stop LOOKING AT them in a particular way. They are, after all, just human beings who LOOK AT things from a particular different perspective, just like you do. Then, we could start encouraging them and supporting them to LOOK AT "others" from a Tr...

Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

But, because light diminishes over distance, then could this help explain WHY the sky is NOT infinitely bright? Overall light doesn't diminish, it just spreads out, so we would have infinite brightness. If that is what you BELIEVE, then okay. Also, because there are black holes, from which light is...

Re: Einstein on the train

@Age I like more depth than the average person as I too can write long posts. But we've already established the concerns you have and the depth does come across as repetitive or what I've expressed as 'explosive', meaning that you take each and every word one responds to in each and every sentence ...

Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

You are extremely contradictory. It's like you are making a collage of things you think are pretty regardless of their meaning and thinking it stands for saying they all fit together without a concern for consistency. To be fair, just stick with one piece of historical step of discovery at a time. ...

Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

You need to first find out how or why the concept of expansion was inferred, whether correct or not. But yes, the 'static' interpretation has to also at least be considered prior to expansion as a default assumption. So you can be wise to hold onto that assumption until proven otherwise. This is th...

Re: Cultural Relativism is wrong

So people who want to exterminate other people should be punished by people who want to exterminate other people. Can you SEE the dilemma here? So what exactly do you suggest we do with the nazis? Stop calling them "nazis" for a start, then you will stop LOOKING AT them in a particular way. They ar...

Re: Cultural Relativism is wrong

if any one opposed your end society or if they thought and had views that you do NOT like, then those ones should be euthanized, or as you say "we need to exterminate them in as horrible death as others have caused", correct? Do you really BELIEVE that human beings with different views, which you d...

Re: Cultural Relativism is wrong

What 'end' are you talking about here? Nazi ends is a society with everyone conforming to the idea of strong men and women can work, compete and provide military troops. A society where everyone who has a weakness is being euthanized. My ends is a society with everyone conforming to the idea of cho...

Re: What's your answer to the most fundamental question concerning time?

But did I give the correct answer to your question ? 'Correct' in relation to 'what' exactly? Only you know if you have the correct answer or not. And how do you know what the correct answer is ? The 'you' KNOWS when it has the correct, in absolute sense, answer because it KNOWS that it is the same...
