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.

    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...
    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!

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

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

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

    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.
