Quote# 2334

We know that an atom is composed of protons and electrons. If the protons are positive and the electrons are negative, then what keeps the electrons from crashing into the positively charged nucleus. If the nucleus is completely made of positive material, what holds it together? Wouldn't it fly apart because of the like charges. We know that gluons don't because they have never been observed or measured. How would they hold the atoms together anyway, no force is really strong enough to keep electrons away from the nucleus or to keep the nucleus together. That is, except the power of god. Check out this verse...Colossians 1:17

Today in science class: Intramolecular forces don't hold atoms together -- God does!

Wow, I think this theory was actually put forth in a parody a while back.

<<< We know that gluons don't because they have never been observed or measured. >>>

We know God doesn't exist becuase he has never been observed. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

Come again? What the hell did I just read? And what does Colossians have to do with molecular physical properties?

The strong nuclear force has been observed and measured, look up quantum chromodynamics sometime.

Didn't Jack Chick try the same argument in the tract \"Big Daddy?\"?

You're an idiot!

Yes he did. Now we know where tacoman528 gets his science information

Neutron fail. Please hand in about half your mass to the front desk posthaste.

You FAIL quantum mechanics forever.

To be notes, gluons have been observed about as much as electrons or protons, so, uh...
Also they've been "measured" more strictly than God.

"Yeah, so god does all these things!"
- "How?"
"Err....", flips through bible, "There's no answer in here!"

THAT'S why you don't explain things with goddidit, it just simply doesn't answer the question.

Again a flock issue. They keep throwing this at the flock and the flock agrees with them because they're persecuted and science lies, as they're told.

Name a scientific working revelation that came from the Bible. Newton doesn't count, he was never one of you (or us for that matter, Newton was unique, Christians have no clue what that means)

The neutrons separate the protons sufficiently.Gluons have been observed - they are the gauge boson that carry the strong nuclear force (sometimes called the colour force).

The reason electrons don't 'crashing' into the nucleus is because they have quantised levels of energy. In order for them to make a transition they have to gain or lose a precise quantity of energy. In order for an electron associated with an atom to be pulled into the nucleus it would have to have 0J of energy.

Just because you don't get quantum mechanics doesn't mean God did it - it usually means you've not looked up the answer to your question.

Another F in atomic physics.

"Check out this verse...Colossians 1:17"

It relates in no way but that's just how full of shit we are.

"He is before all things, and in him all things hold together." -- Colossians 1:17

Okay, I actually can see the relationship between the verse and the topic.

But we know God doesn't exist, because he has never been observed or measured.
