Quote# 59976

If the earth moved at all out of it's orbit it would explode (or something like that). That right there is incredible proof that this world did not come by CHANCE. Come on, you have to agree. What are the odds of the earth just popping into the PERFECT spot in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE?(that's a lot of space to pop up in) I think its because God did it, but if you want to go on thinking that the earth's position is random than I feel very sorry for you.

Relax, don't strain it. Go on, have a cake, you know you want to.

"If the earth moved at all out of it's orbit it would explode (or something like that)"
Or... actually nothing like that.

"if you want to go on thinking that the earth's position is random"
Nobody believes that the Earth's position is random. It's ~150 million kilometres from the Sun at all times, give or take a small amount, and varies predictably with its position on its elliptical orbit. That's almost as far from random as it's possible to get.

Oy Vey!

"Look! this hole fits me perfectly!" said the puddle.

The Earth would explode? Please explain how you came by this hypothesis...er assertion.

Funny, all the other planets don't seem to have exploded.

Why the hell are these people OBSESSED with the end of the world? It's almost like they... don't... like it!

*IDEA!* Sent the fundies to colonize Mars. Solved.

No wait, they'd probably all just sit around and die praying for Gawd to provide an atmosphere. Oh well.

ps. Did anybody miss me? ...No? Well too bad, I'm back. >:3

The Earth's orbit is elliptical so fail.

Ok. So let us assume he is correct. Gawd did it. And that gawd would be .....Vishnu? Zeus? Reminds me of the "first cause" argument. After they convince themselves that gawd exists, they just blinding assume that gawd is their gawd, without any proof.

You really don't know, do you?

That right there is incredible proof that this world did not come by CHANCE.

Since you made up the first part, that means the second part can't be true. Would that count as a non sequitur?

Come on, you have to agree

Do we?

What are the odds of the earth just popping into the PERFECT spot in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE?(that's a lot of space to pop up in)

I suggest you take a look at cosmology and astrophysics. The earth did not just "pop" into place.

I think its because God did it, but if you want to go on thinking that the earth's position is random than I feel very sorry for you.

You do that, and we will continue to make fun of you. Thanks.

Um no if it moved out of orbit depending on which direction it was going it would either burn up, or freeze over.

Yeah, that's right. The entire universe, r=15*10^9 LY, was made just for YOU.

The earth's position DOES have a bit of randomness. It's not a perfect ellipse; it wobbles a bit. It moves out of its orbit ALL THE TIME.

"Vectors" is an important word.

It is I who should feel sorry for you, but I just can't be bothered.

The earth is in the perfect spot - goddidit. Frogs are green - goddidit. My mobile phone charger broke yesterday - goddidit. Etc. etc.

So much proof for the existence of god, my heart hurts.

If the Earth was anywhere else it would not have formed this kind of life, hence we would not exist to discuss this at all.

There's no use discussing "what would have happened if x", as "x" did not happen anyway.
Employ your time thinking about how to make the best of what we actually HAVE, for all of us who are actually HERE, instead of useless what-ifs.
Oh, and please learn the difference between then and than, they are NOT synonyms.

Incredible, indeed. Look it up, JDumbo.

What's the chance of someone as stupid as Jumbofatcakes learning to type? It must be the work of da debbil.

Allegory for Jesus

What are the chances that I am on the ground right now, considering all of the points in space that I could be? Truly, the fact that if I were moved upward I would go right back down to the ground can only be explained by Jesus.

"What are the odds of the earth just popping into the PERFECT spot in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE?"

Chance has nothing to do with events that have taken place... Probability mathematics are tools used to try and predict future events (some times accurately some times not so much), they are useless concerning past events, since the probability of a past event is 1 out of 1... However where probability calculations are useful is determining how likely it is to have a planet capable of sustaining life other than our earth. There are literally millions of galaxies that we can see right now, each have billions of stars and most of those stars have planetoids of some kind.

As for the perfect spot in the entire universe. There are many spots that would be suitable for a planet to support life. Most suns have a "green zone" so to speak, that isn't too hot or too cold to support life. We don't yet have the technology to really see other planets in other solar systems accurately enough to determine do they have planets orbiting the star within this "green zone".

The other arguments re: astrophysics have been made. The earth's orbit is elliptical, and the other planets don't seem to have exploded. But it's extreme arrogance to think that the ENTIRE UNIVERSE was made just so the earth would have this one place in it to never budge out of, on pain of destruction.

If you use the phrases 'or whatever', 'or something', 'or something like that', 'and stuff', or anything similar to those- you generally have no idea what the fuck you're talking about.
