Quote# 5261

Our sun contains over 99% of the mass contained in the entire universe. That to me is incredible. Why our sun? Why not some other star?... Coincidence? Come on. Not even the most close-minded scientist can genuinely buy into that argument. It's there for a reason, and it's presence isn't random.

I think this guy is getting the solar system and the universe mixed up

Check out the post below it:

wouldn't it be better to ask why our planet is situated perfectly to catch that energy?
that means that nowhere else a planet is closer to a weaker sun, allowing for the same amount of energy?

Buncha geniuses on that thread.

Reading through the thread, that's exactly it - he quotes a NASA source that says the Sun has 99.86% of the mass of the solar system.

Crosis, yea, but if it's the solar system, that just reveals another fundamental lack of understanding. If another star contained 99% of the mass of the solar system, that star would be the sun (because a star containing less than 1% of the solar system's mass, well, wouldn't be a star at all, and you can't have two stars that each contain 99% of the amount of mass in the same area).

What....an....idiot.

Are you sure it was 99% of all matter and not just less then .000001%?

Whew, then thank god the law of gravity is bunk and instead the lord gave us intelligent falling.

After that first sentence, it's hard to take anything this twit says seriously.

99% of mass in the entire universe, huh? I never knew that.

Sol contains >99% of the mass in our system and is brighter than 85% of stars in the galaxy. A simple confusion that anyone (Fundie or not) could make.

Hahahhahaha. How do you respond to such insanity, really? Square circles double-plus plus-good!

It is also incredible to me.So much so, that I don't believe it.

Solar system you moron! No scientist would believe it because they would know you were wrong.

Ninety-nine fuckin' percent?! Who misreads a fact so completely that it ends up being an impossible number?! And does drfeelgood seriously think he can get away with something that outrageous?!

If the Milky Way had only 1,000 stars, this would be incredibly wrong. It has far more than that of course, and it's just one of many. And I'm not even a rocket scientist. Just a reader of The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy who knows that space is incredibly big, much more than a trip to the chemist's.

Google Antares - class M supergiant star, 15 times the total mass of the sun.

Some stars are bigger than the sun, some are smaller, but there are 10000000000000000000000 stars.

That's not even taking into account other masses like black holes, planets, comets and the 70 - 90% of the universe which is composed of Dark Matter.

A truly intergalactic fail.

Our sun contains over 99% of the mass contained in the entire universe.

No, it doesn't.

Congratulations, you fail in the first sentence.

If your going to venture outside your bible - read the other fucking books properly before getting confused and rushing back to your bible!
