Re: Who twists?
- Lets go into exact meanings then, shall we?
<br><br>Atheism, no matter what dictionary or english professor
you ask.. will mean "lack of belief in a god" or
"denying the existance of a deity".<br>Now.. you not only
reject other's claims that a god exists, you make
several claims of your own. You claim it's not rational
to believe in a god. You claim science shows
evidence to your side and your side alone, and that this
evidence is undeniable. There's more.. but it doesn't
matter if I list it out, because you don't care and you
don't think those are claims.<br><br>Lets get into
faith though, faith has some defintions that apply to
you.<br>1. Belief; the assent of the mind to the truth of
what is declared by another<br>-You have not done
every scientific experiment by yourself.. nor have you
studied genetics for a lifetime..so you are relying on
someone else's findings and their declarations.<br>2.
Firm and earnest belief, on probable evidence of any
kind<br>-You have a strong belief that a god does not
exist.<br><br>Now..several lines in your message were quite disturbing.
<br>"I have no faith, PERIOD! Faith is believing in what
you cannot prove, and or believing in what can be
proved false"<br>"To regard my statements as having some
faith in them only shows how little you have
investigated the topic."<br>You're saying that if people
believe in something you think isn't true.. then they
have faith and are misinformed. That's just plain
stupid.<br><br>Basically.. if you say it's completely not probable that a
god exists, that's it's not rational to believe in
one, that science is accurate, that the bible is
inaccurate, etc.. then you are not just denying other's
claims, you are making claims of your own. Those are all
positive statements.<br><br>I'm saying your way of
thinking is irrational, not your reasons for rejecting the
idea of a god.

doing so is that it reflects the blue tint of the sky downward. Close
up, a mirror coated aircraft will be visible, but only as a distorted
blob. At a distance, that distortion would be negligable. Combine the
fact that the craft reflects the tint of the sky in all directions
(sun reflection goes upward only so it isn't a factor as long as the
craft flies high) and the fact that it absorbs incomming radar, and
shields it's own thermal emissions, such a craft would be very hard
to see indeed.
FYI I am not refering to just mirror polished, I mean literally as
reflecting as a mirror you would see on a wall.
