"We can see the moon even though it's far away. I'm sure we can see light even further away since it's so bright."

About what I'd expect from a creationist.

Meh, to be fair, if you don't know that to see light, a photon from the source of light has to stimulate a photoreceptor cell in your eye, that's not really your fault and I can imagine thinking that it would be possible to see light "coming", so to speak. Apparently around 50% of American college students believe in the obsolete "emission theory of light", which says that you see things because your vision is somehow "coming out" of your eyes: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12094435?dopt=Abstract
Now THAT is dumb.

Why do we have to reach Disneyland to go on the rides? Can't we go on the rides while we're driving there? It seems like such a waste of time not to multitask.

Vision doesn't work that way.

(This is the one of the reasons why I don't take credit for any of the comments I've submitted. <_<)

Light approaching isn't the same as somebody walking down the street toward you. Gawd.

SIGHT DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY !

Uhh... home schooling strikes again.

Bet no one has ever showed this one how you can't see a laser beam without blowing smoke or mist through it...
3/30/2008 6:29:28 AM
Fair point. Apparently god doesn't need to exist to talk to these people, so it's not such a stretch to conclude that light wouldn't need to reach them to be seen.
3/30/2008 8:38:59 AM
No, because you need light to see light. Moron.

No couse it's not here yet. I coulden't see this stupid ass argument coming either...

My brain hurts.

Why are people this stupid wasting oxygen?

No. If the light hasn't reached you, it hasn't reached you.
Your eyes are essentially photon detectors. Light is made of photons. If those photons don't reach your eyes, then your eyes don't detect them.
Your eyes can't somehow reach out to "grab" the photons en route (Cassiterides, I'm looking at you here. Please take note).

Maybe I'm home but still at work?
1/7/2013 6:46:26 AM
Maybe. MAYBE!? MAYBE!?
Sorry, I think my brain just skipped a beat reading this…
1/7/2013 8:06:41 AM
Your eyes don't work that way!

How DO people this motherfucking stupid manage to find food?
3/2/2013 12:33:29 AM
What you're asking is, couldn't we see something before we see it?
The answer should be fucking obvious, even to that brain-dead life form called a fundie.

Why can we only touch things that are close to us? Why can't we touch them as they approach?
