Everyone knows its gravity, even creationists.
@ModernDayHero07, psych, it's magic
@ModernDayHero07, you're giving them too much credit.
@StuffandThings85, i mean creationists believe gravity. I've never heard of a creationist who denies gravity.
@ModernDayHero07, not all of them do. It's just God. God is holding everything in place.
@ModernDayHero07, if this is final fantasy then gravity is magic.. IM GOING WITH D NACHOS
@StuffandThings85, I have never heard a single Christian, Muslim, or jew ever say gravity doesn't exist you are just being a jerk
@knight of shift, they attribute it to God, and refuse to understand the actual properties of it. There are people like that out there, even those that still believe Earth is flat (it's in the Quran and still accepted as scientific fact).
@StuffandThings85, "they" whose they, you keep saying they with no proof or context. And have you spoken to every person in every religion, if not you are generalizing, and that's not at all fair
@knight of shift, triggered much? Do you want me to list every single person on the planet that thinks this way? 'They' refers to creationists, people like Ken Ham and Kent Hovind and their followers. It may not be you, but people like that are out there.
@StuffandThings85, creationists and evolutionists are not exclusive. I am both and there are many like me. It just annoys me when people like you generalize groups of people
@knight of shift, creationists are imbeciles, not worthy of being called people. If science has proven something, and you don't accept it, you should be shot into space without a space suit. See how god will protect you then.
@Cpzombie, whoa I really hope your just trolling
@knight of shift, I'm not. If you ignore all the scientific evidence for evolution, and choose to believe we were magically created in a day, you aren't a person. If you choose to believe a god created the universe, I still think that's stupid, but to each their own.
@Cpzombie, so you were not trolling when you wanted to shoot all creationists out in to space to die. Hmm I guess genocide is alright when you have a superiority complex. Huh?
@knight of shift, pretty much. If you are a detriment to all of society, why not get rid of you? I see no problem with getting rid of people who are a detriment to all (pure creationists, anti-vaccine, etc.).
@Cpzombie, hmm Hitler had a similar view point. But that's neither here nor there, I am pretty sure you are just trolling, but if not I wish you luck on your genocidal rampage through a large majority of the world. Good day sir
@knight of shift, hitler just had Jews be a scapegoat, he just wanted power.
@StuffandThings85, it would be smarter to use more specifics, because I, as a Christian, believe that all the scientific properties of the world (such as gravity) were made by God to make the world work, so calling creationists (which I obviously am) stupid for their beliefs makes you look like a major dick with a superiority complex. That's like calling feminists "man haters" or some shjt, I don't attribute that to feminists, I attribute that to misandrists.
@Ima6pack, feminists are man haters. They do nothing good for men. Egalitarians are better, they are for equality (I personally dislike equality, everything should be based on merit)
@Cpzombie, I think that we'll just have to respectfully disagree on this... And everything else, because neither of us are going to make any progress
@Ima6pack, if you maintain your beliefs even with a staggering amount of evidence to the contrary, then yes you're stupid. There's no evidence whatsoever that anything in this universe can be attributed to god. To simply say "because God" as a go-to explanation without making any attempt to learn why is just plain lazy and stupid.
@StuffandThings85, did you not read what I said? I said that I believe that God made everything work the way it does WITH their scientific properties, there is no proof that God didn't put all of what we study into motion. Also, my belief hurts no one, so to attack it like that for absolutely no reason makes absolutely no sense. I have faith, and I'm not trying to force anyone else to or belittle those who don't believe, so why attack me and what I believe? You are displaying the bigotry that Christians are so often accused of
@ModernDayHero07, gravity is magic though... *hits blunt*
@StuffandThings85, look around you. just look. there is an intelligence behind everything. There has to be. This all isnt just random. There's something telling everything how to form and function. Like a computer program. It isnt some dude sitting in the clouds throwing people in hell. It's all around us. We are it. And we came from it. Like a giant supercomputer spitting out an never ending amount of possibilities swirling into infinity. "It" or God or the universe, whatever you want to call it, wants to evolve. To learn.
@ModernDayHero07, my god... what have i done.... i shouldnt have commented...
@Ima6pack, I think I want to marry you Old Sport
@ModernDayHero07, don't blame yourself. Blame the parents who should have raised better children.
@Cpzombie, let me just ask this. What proof are creationists denying. Be specific please.
@ModernDayHero07, I have, he also horribly misquotes the bible (according to other people that I knew at the time, who are probably all better versed than him) so it's probably more a deal with stupidity over theism.
@Bellith, I am gunna say, move on or start over, right now everyone is yelling instead of having an argument/discussion.
@The Megaton Bomb, rewording: stupidity instead if theism.*
@Bellith, common sense, among other things. Google it XD
@Cpzombie, how has it been proven?
@Cpzombie, neither of those are proof. I am not saying whether or not I agree with evolution or not. However making claims like yours then having nothing to back it up proves your ignorance and willingness to be lead by others far more then fallowing any religion.
@Cpzombie, Glad we could keep this conversation civil and not go to insults we have no intelligent argument or counterpoint.
@Bellith, actually, I'm telling you to be independent and Google it, lazy bastard
@Bellith, because we* sorry text to speech missed the because.
@Ima6pack, Fight fight fight, kiss kiss kiss...
@knight of shift, FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT, kiss kiss kiss
@Cpzombie, ahhh yes, Google. The most reliable source of all information. Completely backed with research with no room for any selective bias on what sites to look at. The day we take everything in science as fact, is the day science itself dies. Remember that many major scientific discoveries/ inquiries (including evolution) are fairly recent. They have a lot of room to grow. We can't sit around and pretend we have all the answers just because we googled something.
Religion..Science...Why not both?
@MasterDebater12, As a theistic evolutionist, can confirm that they get along perfectly.
@MasterDebater12, as a Christian I can confirm that some of us do except much of science
@Ajunta Pall, Exactly. What if the "days" in genesis were figurative periods of time? It fits together perfectly. Secondly, "the earth 'was' without form and void" can and should be translated "became without form and void." Suggesting it was made perfect and then destroyed. (Meteor maybe?) There's a few other things too but i think it should all fit together.
@Killing instincts , accept*
@Ajunta Pall, thank you
@MasterDebater12, as long as you accept proven science, or stay at least 1000 miles away (and never get online), that's ok.
@MasterDebater12, Also, in my opinion, the earth wasn't created in days. What is a day? 24 hours? What's an hour? A minute? A second? The God I believe in doesn't go by time. He has no end and no beginning. I don't believe in all parts of the bible. I usually base my basic beliefs off the bible and use my own experiences and morals to find my more specific religious beliefs. I think some of the stories in the bible were meant to be taking more figuratively. So yeahhhhh. I types way too much in this comment.
@MasterDebater12, actually there were days and nights before god created the sun and moon, so the bible might have been talking about heavenly days. But then again there's no night in heaven...
@Corycogo5737, first and foremost I have no strong opinions about the subject because I honestly don't know. It's just a suggestion. But I agree with you. There are no contradictions in the bible. Just misinterpretations. A lot of times the bible uses statement that aren't literal but figures of speech, just like we do, to highlight specific parts in His Word.
@Corycogo5737, the only problem I have with that is the fact that the bible repeatedly states the morning and night were the first,second, etc. day which implies a day on earth (the earth moved faster back then so a day would have been shorter) I feel more along the lines of God can create the earth how he wants and to me it's logical to create everything already aged...you wouldn't create stars brand new since the light would not have time to travel to the earth to be seen so why not have the light already travelling? Also it would seem more practical to age everything to a point in order to have ecosystems already in place and functioning. To me I see a lot of science and research and it just proves more so that there is a God which is really hard to explain to most people that I've talked to.
@MasterDebater12, I do love when people say there are contridictions such as a friend of mine and it's always something taken out of perspective or out of context. A lot of the times if you look at who the author was (matthew a jew) and who they're writing to ( the jews) it does seem contradictory like matthew saying who jesus' relatives were while I believe it was mark or John stated he was related to someone else, but if you look at the fact that matthew was Jewish he listed his Jewish relatives to show his lineage which was extremely important to them while the other book listed non Jewish relatives...to which my friend of course didn't care enough to actually read anything about that...it really irks me when people will laugh at my beliefs and scoff at me while I may think what you believe is ridiculous I'll always allow you the decency of explaining your beliefs and I'll listen to what you have to say. And they say Christians are bigots lol
@Spartan133, I agree. 90% of the time it's usually taken from the old testament. Like if a certain tribe was told not to go in the mountains critics would say "your bible says we can't go hiking." A little bit of research goes a long way.
@MasterDebater12, yes it does and I honestly feel like people should be open about hearing differing opinions if i refused to hear somebody elses belief and didn't research it myself then how would I ever know whether I'm blindly following something or not...granted I'll take it as a grain of salt but if it sounds plausible I'll be interested enough to look into it.
@Cpzombie, poor guy. You just try and fit in but nobody like you. Should you really try and distance yourself from others? I mean from most of your comments it's safe to say you're a pretty lonely dude. Shouldn't you be able to just accept others? I mean it seems athiest are more unaccepting than anyone including Muslim, Jewish, Christians and even satanists
@Cpzombie, ignore that post. Someone took my phone.
@Cpzombie, again man while I don't agree with your comment I didn't post that first comment there man sorry I didn't know they were going to post an angry rant.
@Ajunta Pall, Where does the soul fit into our evolutionary history?
Here's one for atheists: "what was the reason for the great depression?" A) the stock market crash, or B) Christians
@Kangaroo Jacked, Ha! It's really C) People forgot their antidepressants!
You do realize, I hope, that Sir Isaac Newton was a creationist.
I'd just like to know when it became ok to pointedly make fun of a specific group of people based on beliefs. And before any of you go "But Christians hate everyone that's fill-in-the-blank." First it's not true, and second even if it was there isn't an acceptable place in society for calling other people imbecilic or fundamentally wrong. How is it "equal" to belittle a group of people and then call foul if the tables are turned?
Gravity is pretty much magic
Creationists don't believe this... Like I'm religious, and I think science is right...
@Solar Ice, there are people that think the Grand Canyon was formed during the "historical event" of Noah's Flood, that dinosaurs lived with humans and the earth is 6000-10000 years old. If you don't, good for us. Many people do,not most but too many. Google Ken Ham, if you're not familiar.
@NotCaveJohnson, pretty sure you are misusing the word "people".
@Cpzombie, clearly this is your first time on the Internet. Here are some people to look up, Sye Ten bruggencate, Kent Hovind, Eric Hovind, John Pendleton (from "Hello, I'm a scientist"), Kirk Cameron, and Ray Comfort. These are popular figure heads, the number of people that follow and believe every word they spout as true is frightening. Watch the Ken Ham v. Bill Nye debate, just for a laugh. The people who side with Ken Ham are a loud and politically active group of impressionable rubes.
@NotCaveJohnson, I meant that they don't count as people XD
@Cpzombie, haha. That crossed my mind, but I thought i'd be more informative and assume you meant that the other way.
Everyone gonna ignore the fact that it said "Exam papers" then proceed to ask a multiple choice?
Uummm can I use a lifeline ?
Umm, the answer is C. God's good grace. Duh, everyone knows that. It's right there in THE museum. Right next to the Adam, Eve and Raptors exhibit.
@NotCaveJohnson, ahhahhahahahah, original, and funny, the total package
Ha! Trick question, it's God.

This is stupid and i don't like it
Well, it is neither. Gravity doesn't pull towards the center of the earth. Gravity is a force that can go in all directions, depending on the situation. It is very egotistical to think that the very center of a fundamental force is Earth, when in actuality, there is no force that pulls to the center of Earth. Sure to us it looks like it is that way, but is that actually true?
@The Punner, technically, yes. Earth's gravitational force pulls things towards the center of the earth.
@DaletheWhale, YOU are absolutely correct. EARTH'S gravitational force pulls stuff towards the center. the picture however made it seem otherwise.
@DaletheWhale, incorrect. The force of gravity does not pull anything...currently, the best theory for Gravity is still Relativity. Which is words, says something like "objects with mass and/or momentum, distort space-time causing an acceleration on all other objects with mass and/or momentum, in the direction towards the center of their mass/momentum..." though Relativity has major issues, and we pretty much know for certain that it is completely wrong (due to it not being based in quantum physics, while recent results prove Gravity is a quantum force.)
Neither the answer is J. C.
C. Jesus Christ our lord and savior
Just watching his face when he mouths "magic"
I gotta go with B, Jim.
Because we* sorry text to speech missed the because
I would just like to apologise to anyone offended by this joke, it is a cheap joke that I made impulsively without considering any repercussions, it also has occurred to me that I have gotten the facts wrong as well, I would remove the upload but struck pixel doesn't allow you to do that. Just out of curiosity would it be less offensive if it was extremist/traditional. All apologies.
-what they said
It's actually neither. Gravity pulls things away from the earth not towards it
Im a little rusty on my argument vocab. Is this a straw man or not?
Anybody else's brain think magic was magnetic, and was like 'trick question'
