Why were you asking God to do that exactly?
10/24/2009 1:32:21 AM
Yes...because around 440 million years ago [if you are talking about the Pleiades cluster, I've never heard of the Pleidees] you where born Yahweh said "Hmmmm in 1971 a person who will post on a thing yet unmade called the internet, on a site called YouTube will show this undeniable proof, that isn't totally made up, that I exist me to show proof by extinguishing a star in the Pleiades after asking me to."
How self centered are you Lou? Stars come and go, I know that some of the stars that I see looking up at the sky at night are long gone, but their glow remains for now and the light began it's fantastic journey through space millions, if not tens or hundreds of millions, of years ago.

Astronomical vandalism for Jesus!

I asked God to take away my PCOS.
it didn't work.

You do know how long the light of the stars takes to reach the Earth, don't you?
If your ridiculous assertion had any truth (was it the April 1st edition of the Oxford newspapers perchance?) then at 440 light years away, gawd would have had to extinguish the star (and re-ignite it later) in 1531.
Secondly, what would gawd achieve by extinguishing a star to answer the prayer of one (daft) xian when there are real potential problems here on earth that need fixing? A real miracle on Earth might be the real proof you lack of your Gawds existence.
(also, Pleiades and not Pleidees).

A) Astronomy does not work that way.
B) If the star in question was extinguished and you were able to see it in your lifetime, it most likely actually died thousands if not millions of years BEFORE YOUR BIRTH.

I once asked Joe Pesci to win an Academy Award. Shortly there after it was announced on live television, 1990.
Why? Because Joe Pesci gets shit done. Unlike your god.
10/24/2009 2:26:26 AM
This is a good one, I really laughed. It deserves some kind of "cute dumbness" award.
10/24/2009 2:28:26 AM
All those poor Pleiadeans having their sun extinguished
at the whim of a Christer. You are a genocidal arsehole.
Made in the perfect image of your god.

Now that you've brought that verse up -- how come God thinks the sun revolves around the earth??! Ruh roh.
10/24/2009 4:11:38 AM
Another phantom in the net.
10/24/2009 4:20:36 AM
Tsk, yeah, right. Come on, seriously, just, come on. Why would you pray for that instead of curing your lobotomy?
10/24/2009 5:47:26 AM
My, you must be important. Think of all the simple prayers that must go unanswered, and yet God snuffs out entire galaxies for you.

And we know it's true because NASA found a missing day thousands of years in the past with their computer.

Does anyone know which Oxford newspaper he is talking about? If they have archives I'd love to prove him a liar.

"Moses call an air strike? Child's play. How about stopping the world for a day?
Joshua 10:12-14 "So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day." Modern atrocity is you lot, not God."
This is supposed to be convincing, right? Just checking.
"Once I asked the Lord to extinguish a star in the Pleidees. Shortly thereafter it was announced in the local Oxford newspapers, 1971."
I'd be more impressed if you could point me to the peer reviewed astronomy journal that discusses a star suddenly vanishing without warning.

A star dying in a nebulous cluster of thousands of stars in various stages of development is about as convincing as praying that a fish dies in the ocean and then picking a half-eaten halibut off the beach and using it as proof.

Once I asked the Lord to extinguish a star in the Pleidees. Shortly thereafter it was announced in the local Oxford newspapers, 1971.
Next time, ask Him to extinguish cancer ... He apparently hasn't thought of that Himself.
Is he making a muddled reference to the story of the "Seven Sisters" (the Pleiades) in Greek mythology, for which the eponymous cluster has only six obvious bright stars?

The only light emitting objects you've ever extinguished have been the five candles on your annual birthday cake. A birthday cake that has annually had five candles on it for the last 10 years at least. I foresee no increase in the number of candles on future cakes. Mommy still thinks you are five and, judging by your quotes, so does everyone else.

Okay, can we have some non-Biblical proof of this day were the sun didn't set. I mean a day of such astronomical importance would have probably been recorded by every literate person on the planet, so finding another document that makes mention of it would be super easy.
I'd do the research myself, but you see, the burden of proof is on you.
