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.

      All of the giant gaseous planets have rings. Saturn (obviously), Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune, but this is the first I've heard of something other than them having one.

      I'm always still in trouble again

        So some minor ball of rock in the middle of nowhere gets a system of rings but Earth doesn't? BOO!

        I suggest we blow up the moon and arrange the debris into rings post-haste.
        "When the Western world accepted Christianity, Caesar conquered; and the received text of Western theology was edited by his lawyers…. The brief Galilean vision of humility flickered throughout the ages, uncertainly…. But the deeper idolatry, of the fashioning of God in the image of the Egyptian, Persian, and Roman imperial rulers, was retained. The Church gave unto God the attributes which belonged exclusively to Caesar."

        — Alfred North Whitehead
