  1. I disagree, truth is that which comports with reality, truth by definition has to be objective. 50 billion flies refers to the old saw about "Eat shit, 50 billion flies can't be wrong"
  2. If you want to convince anyone of the existence of your god I would suggest you start by not using the ignorant lying sack of steaming monkey shit called Dr. Zakir Naik as a source. The number of people who are converting to islam or the number of people who believe islam is meaningless. You need to provide empirical evidence for the existence of a god then we can discuss whether or not your god exists until actual testable evidence is given all you are doing is preaching and that is not allowed here.
  3. Ask all the questions you want, stop trying to make excuses for people who only want to limit your personal rights by making you conform to books of ancient mythology. If the banks need to be reformed do so but giving ancient fairy tales as a guide because a supposed god said so is madness.
  4. Why would any of this matter? The number of people who accept something as true has no bearing on the actual truth of it.
  5. When are we going to realize that living our lives in accordance with ancient mythology is a bad idea? Sadly the fundies that think their book has to rule the lives of everyone and that their particular fairy tale has to be the law of the land.
  6. I think it's important to point out that Islam allows its followers to lie to non believers and that Dr Zakir Naik is one of the most prolific liars in the apologetic game. All the stuff that has been asserted here is nothing but baseless claims, before you start trying to use the koran to dictate reality you need to establish the that a god of any kind exists then you need to show that your god exists then we can (maybe) begin to debate the truth of the koran. BTW, good luck with the whole flying horse and splitting the moon in half.
  7. Hello, my name is Samantha but I'm not an aardvark!
  8. Thank you, I was unaware of that decay path, particle physics and other related things are not in my area of expertise in any way but it still fascinates me. I read about it every chance I get. There is always something new to be learned and it's reasonably clear how it works... just facinting!
  9. Watching Resident Alien on TV, hilarious show!

      I noticed NF had picked it up this week.  I had a trial sub to whichever streaming service had it about a year ago, watched the first season and loved it.  So am looking forward to catching S.2.  Have been a Tudyk fan since he accidentally ingested hallucinogens in Death at a Funeral, and I discovered Firefly.  He is a great comedic talent.  As is most of the cast of RA.


  10. So we can observe these particles actively disintegrating atomic nucleus or are you saying we can detect the tiny amounts of this high energy radiation when it reaches the earth? The "oh my god particle" was not a gamma ray, cosmic rays are atomic nuclei accelerated to within a tiny fraction of the speed of light. Get back to me when you figure out the difference between cosmic rays and gamma rays.
