  1. Hmm very interesting video. I appreciate the post.
  2. It would seem to me that many Atheists, would understand the fact that the chances of a god existing and watching over our single planet is slim. I agree with the fact that Atheists would have less moral objections to suicide also. I would recommend Emile Durkenheim's studies of social integration and suicide for anyone interested in this topic further.
  3. Logically, with the amount of galaxies that there are, and the vast number of stars in each galaxy, and the seemingly unmeasurable amount of planets surrounding these stars, it seems very likely that there are many a world that is habitable. Now, I believe the more important question here is habitable for what? Humans? Intelligent life? Microbial life? I can almost hear Carl Sagan explaining the Drake equation to me as I write this.
  4. this is an absolutly amazing opportunity I appreciate you guys telling me this as I now have to reserve the telescopes at my college! Merry Christmas all!!!
  5. I don't understand how there cannot be a "center." I think however they may perhaps be some misunderstanding about what I meant by center. In my previous reply I was referring to the "center" as in the "origin point."
  6. It would seem to me that "outward" would have to be measured from the center of the Big Bang. "Outward" in this instance is the particular direction going away from the "center" of the Big Bang.
  7. I dont understand, the big bang is the thought that all matter in the universe came from a single point isnt it? Why is it such an illegitimate thought then to say that this is ---the---origin?
  8. It would have to have an origin if its an expansion. Now what I believe the poster meant was that if everything revolved around that center point. Which is definatly not true. There had to be an origin and this origin is the center of the universe. My theory is that there is a small metal sphere there, and on it it has a post- it note that said. BOOM! im joking if you didnt get it by the way.
  9. so should i postpone getting a new laptop untill next year?
  10. They are bright because pf the simple fact that there are, I believe the last number I saw was 400 billion stars in our galaxy. The center of Galaxys are bright because of the face that the "celestial real- estate" is so close to another. It couldnt be because of the curvature of light because you wouldnt see the light unless there was some medium for it to pass through. erg. You dont see the beam of light when you turn on a flashlight only what it shines on, unless your shining it through a medium such as dust or fog. Intersteller dust in our case.
  11. interesting point i remember looking at the plans for this particular spacecraft in epidode 8 of cosmos the series. i believe the title was "travels in time and space"
