Refraction of light through water droplets suspended in the air.

Yah, maybe a thousand years ago. China approx. 1050, Perssia approx. 1300, Europe 1307. Refinement approx. 1630s, 1820s, and 1908.

Not only is it scientifically explicable, but it was figured out in Song Dynasty China.
Didn't research your claim, I'm guessing.

Ahahaha! We've got a smart one here, don't we?

Refraction splitting (white) light into its different wavelengths.
You see 6, but for biblical reasons a 7th mythical color was added.
Actually the whole wavelength is split from the infraRed up to the UltraViolet which the human eye cannot see.
This is basic science from PRIMARY school days and clearly demonstrated by cultures going back long before the bible.
The only thing impossible to explain is the depth of your stupidity.

How old are you? Two?
8/12/2008 10:00:53 AM
wow - and I always thought my school was a bit rubbish - but they were explaining the 'impossible' in Physics lessons when I was eleven years old!

Did you go to school?

...Wow idiot. To make a rainbow all you need is a water hose, sunlight and some luck. Or at least thats all I needed when I last made on at age 8.

Just Passing By
Is this the same guy who asked "How is babby formed?" on Y!A?
Close relative, maybe...
12/6/2008 2:43:12 PM
Have you ever heard about prism? Guess not...
12/6/2008 2:58:42 PM
Except it's light reflecting through water vapor, so...

I understood the scientific explanation for rainbows when I was about ten.

Didn't research your claim, I'm guessing.
That's the problem, Travis - fundies don't bother to do research because they are convinced, entirely convinced, that they already have the right answer to everything. They are thus absolutely certain, without ever making a single measurement or observation, that any and all such empirical data would have supported their assertions, had they ever actually bothered to gather it. It's sheer, pathological arrogance.

I done graduated grade 6 and even I knows that!
12/6/2008 5:36:33 PM
HOW IS RAINBOWE FORMED?
HOW LIGHT GET REFRACTED?
12/6/2008 6:54:23 PM
Dude, I learned that in like elementary school...

Congratulations. You have failed in a task that should come naturally to most 9-year-olds.
12/6/2008 9:02:23 PM
Oh come on. I knew how rainbows are formed when I was still in elementary.
Folks, don't let yourselves get homeschooled by a fundie family.

Oh boy, he's a smart one..rofl.

"He made the rainbow (which is impossible to explain scientifically)"
...but a child can replicate with just a lightbox, a piece of card with a slit, and a prism. Or even a squirt bottle (with the nozzle set to 'mist') and a sunny day.
So even a child can at least become God. Said child (who knows how rainbows are formed) can gain the necessary grades/qualifications at school to enter college, then university, ultimately to a research post at Oxford/Cambridge/MIT etc, then be employed at, say, CERN in Switzerland - who'll then, via discovering the Higgs-Boson in the Large Hadron Collider, be able to destroy Genesis, thus the Bible, and therefore God.
When even a psychology major at college can explain your insanity, Aescher, then is it any wonder religion is becoming less & less relevant today?
Science. Destroying religion since 1609.
Clicking on the quote link, isn't it funny how Aescher is conspicuous by his absence after (especially 'Atheist') hands him his own arse logically. Rather like a certain Troll4Life, after she knows her insipid 'threats' of 'Hell'are ignored and/or she'd backed into a corner argument-wise (and usually resorts to insults - the last resort of a fundie who knows they've lost the argument). Funny eh, Troll4Life?
And not in a 'funny-ha-ha' way, neither.

Refraction of light. Now what was so fucking hard about that, hmm?
