Quote# 30717

There is zero proof of black holes. Now, if someone wants to believe in them that's fine. There is some evidence that can be interpreted that way, and maybe they do exist, I'm not saying they don't. I'm just saying there is no proof of them. So if somebody says there are black holes, the reason they are saying that, and they probably don't even know it, they are trying to rescue the Big Bang Theory because the Big Bang Theory would say if the matter expanded or blew out from the Big Bang it should be evenly distributed. There are billions of miles of nothing, then clumps of matter called galaxies. The real purpose behind the black hole idea is to rescue the Big Bang - to explain why there is the nothings between the somethings.

BLACK HOLES DO NOT WORK THAT WAY. GOODNIGHT.

Umm, no. No it does not. Black holes have as much to do with big bang theory as evolution has to do with morals, which is: dun dun dunnnn absolutely nothing!

I think he means dark matter, but even then he fails. The reason the universe is in "clumps of matter called galaxies." is called gravity.

Kent, it's called "gravity" + localised non-symmetries in the early universe and stellar evolution to boot.

Your strawman's on fire again...

Kent is now demonstrating that, in addition to knowing nothing about biology, he also knows nothing about cosmology.

Yes, the reason matter is not evenly distributed is gravity. As far as your knowledge of black holes goes, you fail.

How about you apply that same demand for evidence on god.

Failed elementary astrophysics, didn't you?

11/2/2007 3:17:13 AM

Wet Walnuts

OK, I have only the most rudimentary understanding of astrophysics, and even I know this is wrong.

Mr Smith

There are mountains of evidence for black holes! Also, while we are on the subject of proof, the Schwarzschild Solution. That mathematical proof! Thats the best kind of proof you can get!

How can anyone take this assclown seriously?

1 Black holes exist

2 Only your strawman version of the BB says matter should be evenly distributed. The real BBT says no such thing.

11/2/2007 3:46:34 AM



There is proof. Heard about the Radiotelescope?. Of course not. And if you understand "proof" as what the Bible says, there would be virtually no proof of anything at all.

11/2/2007 3:53:10 AM

tbt

There is zero proof of black holes.

...Go on....

and maybe they do exist, I'm not saying they don't.

=/ buh..

So if somebody says there are fod/s, the reason they are saying that, and they probably don't even know it, they are trying to rescue the God/s Theory because the God/s Theory would say if the matter expanded or blew out from the God/s it should be eveerywhere believed. There are billions of books, then a clump of turgid pages matter called The Bible. The real purpose behind the Bible is to rescue belief in god/s - to explain why there is nonsense and contradiction in belief in god/s.

Only it doesn't.

at least with this guy you KNOW you're going to get crap regardless of what he says

There is zero definitive proof of BHs, but then there is zero definitive proof of anything.

Black Holes are still a 'theoretical' part of our cosmological models, and a number of massive bodies that conform to the predicted properties for BHs - hence are believed to be BHs - have been identified. But not all cosmologists believe they are real.

http://space.newscientist.com/article/dn12089-do-black-holes-really-exist.html

That said, everything after that opening statement is pure 'kent'. Black Holes are believed to be formed by the collapse of massive stars, but if the Big Bang model predicted that matter should be evenly distributed, how would stars form to collapse into Black Holes in the first place?

When your own strawmen don't stand up, you know you're going stir crazy!

Chandrasekhar limit says you fail.

Big Bang Theory would say if the matter expanded or blew out from the Big Bang it should be evenly distributed

The big bang theory says no such thing!

There is zero proof that you have any credibility to speak about anything at all.

11/2/2007 5:10:50 AM

Mister Spak

You have zero knowledge of cosmology and astronomy as well as biology.

Just when you think Kent Hovind can't possibly be less informed about science, you see something like this.

11/2/2007 6:16:13 AM

Frank

Ironically enough, it won't be long until Kent's colossal ignorance collapses in on itself.

11/2/2007 6:26:30 AM

Doctor Whom

Go out (once you're paroled) and explore the entire universe until you can prove that there are no black holes anywhere in it. That's the standard for disproof of Christianity that some fundies require.

11/2/2007 6:29:24 AM



Just another cross-tie on the Hovind failroad.

I do believe we have no real concrete proof about black holes... Just mathematical equations that 'are logical.'
However, black holes have nothing to do with why galaxies are grouped together, that is gravity.
