Natural Science 301 Guidelines

This is an open forum area for all members for discussions on all issues of science and origins. This area will and does get volatile at times, but we ask that it be kept to a dull roar, and moderators will intervene to keep the peace if necessary. This means obvious trolling and flaming that becomes a problem will be dealt with, and you might find yourself in the doghouse.

As usual, Tweb rules apply. If you haven't read them now would be a good time.

    Without a clear-cut definition of sin, morality becomes a mere argument over the best way to train animals

    I read about this earlier today. It was interesting trying to imagine what the night sky would look like if it was in our solar system.

      Looks like *some* planets are trying to overcompensate for something...

        God liked it, so he put a ring on it.

          Seriously though, space both terrifies and delights me. It's frightening because everything that scares you here on earth exists out there turned up to 11 and about fifty bazillion times as large, and delightful almost *because* it's so incomprehensibly large and quite beautiful.

          I used to have a recurring dream where I would be stranded in the void of space, just floating endlessly nowhere with no idea even what direction the Milky Way (and home) was. I would wake up with a mild anxiety attack...

            There are girls who slap you after rebuffing your clumsy advances who are fifty bazillion times as large, and delightful than they are here?

              Well, you wouldn't be lost forever! How would you even end up there? If you were in a Resurrection body in the far future, you could just pray for some help!
              If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!
