what in the world...

Needs context, damnit.
Edit: Had to read the OP to figure out what the hell was going on. Apparently this guy posted a thread claiming that water bonds with an extra oxygen molecule during the spring and summer months, and becomes H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide). Not exactly fundie, but pretty damn stupid.

No. Just no.

Chemistry and listening aren't your fortes, is that correct?
I give you a D. But that's only because your dad gave me a big phat bribe.

So, on sunny days the water has extra oxygen? When the sky is grey with clouds, the water is often grey too. When the sky is clearblue, the water is often blue too. I thought it was mostly a mirror effect, but your free oxygen theory makes MUCH more sense.
Oh wait, no, it doesn't.

REALITY DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY! /Morbo

Chemistry does not work that way!!!

How could anyone let this fool near hydrogen peroxide?

Ignorance opens its mouth again - you shouldn't make blind assumptions in areas about which you know nothing.
The blue colour of liquid oxygen is believed to be due to a single photon simultaneously elevating two electrons to excited states on two separate ground state oxygen molecules. The absorption of the photon, combined with 1-3 vibrational quanta, creates a series of relatively-strong absorption peaks in the red, yellow and green regions of the visible spectrum, thus resulting in the perceived blue colour of the liquid. The temporary loss of the blue colour after passing through an activated silica gel column, and the slow return of colour, suggests the transition is relatively infrequent.

What the hell is he talking about?

Water is blue because it reflect the blue of the sky. At present the Mediterranean Sea is a wonderful blue because there are no clouds - it being high summer.
But come winter, there will be clouds and Joyce's description of the Irish Sea ("Snot-greet, scrotum-shrivelling") is just as apposite for the Med!

@Tempus - Thanks for that, just goes to show he's been mad for years. I was just waiting for sky being blue because it contains oxygen.

No idea what it's on about. I'm assuming it's fuckwittery because it's on Bibleforums.

Here's some H2O2. Do us all a favour and drink it.

"2) Is this pressure used to holding the bonding of the extra oxygen molecule, also used in the chemical you work with? "

Okay, I practically failed high school chemistry, and even I know that is FUBAR.
What in the fucking fuck??

Not a fundie, just an idiot.
Still, it's the same behavior you see in fundies - they pick their conclusion, then ignore all evidence, reasoning, or sanity that might detract from it.

Thanks for the context Tempus - now, after reading this and the other one... I think I hurt something.
7/30/2009 9:04:38 AM
no, water is blue because... It's blue. Sky has nothing to do with it.
7/30/2009 9:27:44 AM
Some water is blue.
The stuff that comes out of my tap is clear.
The Fraser River is brown.
Glacier lakes are green.
Kalamalka lake is multicoloured.
It has to do with reflection, minerals, and pollutants (man made and natural) in the water. You don't find pure H2O in nature.
Quit smoking the low quality meth you're attempting to make.

Edit button gone?
I was just going to say that this is more CTSTDT.

Learn English. It may make the chemistry easier.

I think my brain just melted.
