yes, and that's not cool because making sense is very important to you

Yeah, but, no, but .... the sun isn't the centre of our galaxy.
And the universe doesn't have a centre.

Gosh, Beav, it sure doesn't make sense! Think really hard now...Why might that be?

Dhalsim isn't this reaching.

oh, THAT'S what doesn't make sense. Oh dear.

Before I bake my tater-tots and hot dogs in the toaster oven, I sometimes make a salad. The damndest thing is that the salad always ends up in the center of my kitchen table, with my dogs and tot satellites revolving around it. Although this makes the application of condiments more difficult, it happens infallibly, and I am forced to accept as a universal law that whatever is made first just ends up in the middle of the other things. So to my thinking, Nicodemus has a point.

Didn't Copernicus and the Pope sort this out 500 years ago?

"God could do this, but it doesn't make sense."
Nothing in this post makes sense.

Yeah, there is a slot at the north pole where he inserted the crank.

I have a feeling that this guy's knowledge of cosmology falls somewhat short of a second grade level. Seems like he doesn't even realize that our galaxy is quite a bit bigger than our solar system.
Also, judging just by the small bit of universe we've poked around in already it would seem that 'God' has a thing for TONS of extra crap, so I wouldn't put it past him to not make the Earth the center of all creation.

No, seriously, just no. To claim that the earth is the physical center of the universe represents one of the highest forms of denial. It's not a faith issue, because we can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the earth revolves around the sun.
As for the earth as the "spiritual center" of the universe, I suppose you could make that claim, but it would rely on the earth being the only planet on which there is life of any sort.

"but it doesn't make sense"
Neither does anything else you wrote here.

That the earth would be totally dark despite the fact that, according to the Bible, the first thing that God made was the LIGHT, because there were no sun or stars, doesn't make sense either.

EricHow small we really are
I was waiting for an excuse to post that.
For being the most important thing in the universe we're pretty small. And is it just simpler to say that your holy book was written by people who just didn't know how vast the cosmos is and just assumed that they were the center of the universe. I just can't get over how arrogant that is.

It doesn't matter how logical your argument is, we have the evidence.
10/9/2007 10:22:38 AM
Open your danm eyes and look around. Do you see how things work? Do you have a hard time grasping this reality just because it doesn't jive with what you've been told? Say, there might just be a reason for this! Hmmmm, what could it be?'
Maybe . . . . Satan?

"God... doesn't make sense."

Posts like this fill me with such warm fuzzy feelings about homeschooling.
"If the sun is the center of our galaxy...."
It isn't. Next?

If this guy isn't a Poe, he's a prime candidate for cluebattery in the first degree.

"obviously, God could do this, but it doesn't make sense."
If making sense was important you wouldn't have posted this tripe in the first place.
The sun is not the center of the galaxy and neither is the earth.
Both of these are observable facts.
The rest of your post is simply bullshit.
I pity children who are homeskooled these kinds of "facts".
It makes me wish there were standardized exams even fundie homeskoolers would be forced to pass to get any kind of credits for homeskooling.
It might prevent this kind of tragedy.

This guy is out there somewhere, walking among us.

YOU FAIL A ASTRONOMY!

Good lack-of-God, it's a Geocentrist.

Even the Bible disagrees with you. Taken from your precious KJV:
The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Note the bolded section.

Speaking of making sense:
Any point could be plotted as the centre of the universe, but that would give...
- the planets of our solar system some bizarre orbits
- the most distant galaxies unimaginable velocities
Makes sense to you?
