Wow, I didn't know that rocks were made of hydrogen and helium.

A star is not a rock. It's a ball of burning gas. If the bible thinks something is possible that doesn't mean it is possible because the bible was written thousands of years ago by men who knew nothing of science.

"Wow, I didn't know that rocks were made of hydrogen and helium."
Nitpick - Stars are manufacturer of the heavier elements

Creationist logic: Once the Bible saz so, further thought is not required.
Either way no flood event can create craters in the same fashion a meteor has.

Is there a bottom to stupidity? Other than stars are rocks, the rest of this just seems to be complete gibberish.

Star's arn't rocks, they are highly compressed gas. Compressed enough to produce enough energy/heat to start nuclear fission.

Stars are somewhat bigger than the Earth, so quite how a third of them are to fall onto us is beyond me.

The Logic Stick
Allow me to beat you. Good point though, if two-thirds of the stars 'crashed' on the Earth, we'd be pretty f**ked up, I imagine. He also disregarded the main point of the previous post though. Douche.

One third of all stars collided with Earth?
Both you and your bible are full of shit.

Except a star "falling to earth" would be a nuclear explosion the size of say "the sun"... Infact the hydrogen bomb's fusion reaction is a portion of a star's power.
We wouldn't even have a planet left to live on should one of those hit. Let alone a third...

Nuclear fusion, not fission /nitpick

A meteor is just a rock and so is a star when its knocked down to its basics.
No, stars are made mostly of hydrogen gas, not rocks. They only make other elements during their death throes.
The minimum size for a star is about 15,000 times the mass of the earth - below that, they can't sustain the nuclear fusion that makes them shine. How credible is it that a third of a sextillion stars could fall to earth?
Revelation is just some nut's stupid fantasy. It wasn't even considered part of the Bible by Martin Luther. Many other early Christians considered it not inspired and argued against its inclusion in the canon.

I'm not saying you're a stupid fundie but you incompetently post your posts.

A star is a burning ball of hydrogen even the smallest of which would make the Earth look like an infinitesimal dot. When the Bible says that the star's will fall to the Earth it could possibly mean meteors as people back then had no way of knowing the difference between a comet and a star. They both look like tiny lights to us. But if it literally means stars, well then that's just no even possible.

Mr. Tambourine Man
Did you know that the sun, while just a medium-sized star, represents 99.8% of the solar system's mass? If the Earth were hit by a star, there wouldn't be a crater. There wouldn't be anything left. Period.
2/3/2008 1:20:51 AM
IF the earth were hit by a star there wouldnt' be an earth.
2/3/2008 2:07:56 AM
A star could not "fall" to earth, earth would fall to the star, though technically two objects do "fall towards one another, how ever when one is many times more massive than the other, the overall effect is the smaller object falling towards the larger. Please just learn some basic physics.

Excuse my CAPS while I open with:
THE BIBLE ISN'T FUCKIN SCIENCE, YOU SHITWAD!
Now that that's out of my system, I can clear this up with 2 songs by a great band called They Might Be Giants
Song #1 - The sun (a star) is a mass of incandecant gas...
- Title: Why does the Sun Shine?
- Album: Severe Tire Damage
Song #2 - ... a shooting star's a meteor that's heading for a fall... the friction as it falls through air produces heat and light...
- Title: A Shooting Star is Not a Star
- Album unknown

I feel for whoever made the original post: being called incompetent by someone who thinks stars are big rocks can't be easy to take.
2/3/2008 3:05:59 AM
Dumbfuck, the Babble is not a science text. Deal with it, moron.
2/3/2008 3:20:04 AM
Astronomy says you fail. Miserably.
2/3/2008 3:43:13 AM
These people just can't quite seem to get the whole concept of symbolism. Of course stars don't literally fall to earth, and the flood most likely ain't literal either. Sad...
2/3/2008 3:43:56 AM
Stars are not rocks no matter how basic one gets, Bibles do not think and you are a big hole.

Actually, Robert, I PWN3D Satan's ass! I handed it to him on a silver fucking platter. I did it for the LULZ. He was such a fucking n00b! w00t! Now STFU & DIAF!
