Quote# 3043

I have read a marvelous little book that explains how the enite Universe could have been made, in a mere six days, and still account for many things that evolution doesn't. For instance, the red shift. How do you explain the fact that it appears as everything in the universe is moving away from us?

WTF?! || meh


1.A book saying something doesn't make it true.

2.Big Bang. Nothing to do with evolution. Get a clue.

Big Bang.

I have a marvellous little book that claimed a boy commandeered a giant peach with similarly engorged insects and flew it to New York, but you don't see me quoting it as absolute truth.

Please tell me he didn't just say that.
Edit: oh, wait, it's from HomeSchoolDebate. Okay then. He did say it.

Is \"enite\" a homeschool or fundy word? It's not in my dictionary.

The \"enite\" universe may be, but not the one you and I live in, Punkin.

Well, when God slammed earth into the universe, the shockwave repelled all other bodies, putting them in outward motion.

Or did he create the stars after earth? Someone who knows the bible surely has an equally intelligent and logical explanation.

I find the idea of presenting one of the earliest clues to the Big Bang as evidence for creationism. Rather ironic.

I'd tell you Elif Tymes, but you'd need a basic education to understand the answer.

See, it's people like this that make everone think all home schoolers are idiots. Some of us actually use that organ between our ears for something.

Most people explain the appearance of things moving away from them (relative to their frame of reference) with things that move away from them.
A large subset of these explain things that move by things that have been set in motion at some earlier point.

No, what you see is people moving away from you, because you're so fucking stupid nobody wants to be near you.

The first two sentences make no sense at all, but the last sentence is actually a reasonable question. It shows up in intro physics classes all the time.

Here's the answer: _everything in the universe is moving away from everything else_, except for objects that are close enough together for their mutual gravity to overcome the expansion of the universe. That expansion looks the same no matter where you are. Should I start explaining the math or not?

lease revue 20th century astronomy and get back to us.

Not everything

Adromeda is heading towards us, Galaxies have collided (Hubble has several pictures of colliding Galaxies and Broken Galaxies that are the results of two meeting) Most appear to be increasing in distance but not all

Hows this fact fit in with your Earth as centre of the universe theory?

"How do you explain the fact that it appears as everything in the universe is moving away from us?"

It's trying to get as far away as possible as quickly as possible. Can't say I blame it. Unfortunately I'm stuck on this ball of dirt with idiots like you.

Um, because it is?
