Re ancients
Just say "I don't know anything about it"

What you don't know, does not make what others know crap. You are being unscientific.

Re: Consuming interior
LOL

Are you for real?

Is that post the output of a new bullshit generator?


Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!

Re: Consuming interior
Is there some particular reason you are choosing to believe old tribal myths rather than the findings of modern scientific?

Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

Belief gets in the way of learning--Robert A. Heinlein

How can I possibly put a new idea into your heads, if I do not first remove your delusions?--Robert A. Heinlein

It's not what we don't know that hurts, it's what we know that ain't so--Will Rogers

If I am entitled to something, someone else is obliged to pay--Jerry Pournelle

If a religion's teachings are true, then it should have nothing to fear from science...--dwise1

"Multiculturalism" does not include the American culture. That is what it is against.

Re: Consuming interior
The Bible says about the interior, "it is turned up as with fire"
Religionists have immediately jumped onto that pagan wagon and gone the whole way calling it hell fire. But it says "AS with fire" in many other places it says that it is frozen or cold and so forth. That's because the energy or heat has been fully consumed or released into itself or back into the earth. Part of it will and can melt the rocks and even cause the recycling of the plates, like the tracks on earth moving equipment. the ocean bed shows that this happens all the time, causing continental drift.

Below the crust and all its hot and cold spots, is a state which is not hollow, but mimics partial solidity to varying degrees in different places. It is only an effect, and does not necessarily mean that the insides are as such. But if we were to be in it, we would turn into nothing.

The conditions of this force within, can be changed and caused to erupt, in which case whole mountain chains would disappear, islands would vanish, and there would be places where it the earth has deep cavities in the crust.

If the other force - the light went out off control, the earth would stop and spin in the other direction and reel around like a drunkard.

....


Please, tell my you are just making this up on your own. You don't have any mentors or any help, right? And there's actually nothing published. Is that correct? And please assure us that you are self-medicating.

If more than one person was even remotely involved with this, I'd be shocked.

Yes, about one thousand findings in nature.

And that makes it wrong?

How many people would you need, that know what I have just posted, before it becomes true to you?

Interesting isn't it, what you might base your truth on?

Re: Consuming interior

No, it just makes me feel more secure that the world has not slid into insanity.

No number, but that wasn't the point. The point is that your ideas are not just an outlier, they are not even in this universe.

And no, I cannot say that you are wrong. I can't make any sense of what you wrote. It's all over the place with (probably un-Christian) mysticism and platitudes.

Do you have any support for your ideas, other than the fact that they represent what you want the truth to be?

Interesting isn't it, what you might base your truth on?

Yes, interesting and completely alien to you, I'm sure.

For instance, my 'truth' (whatever that is) is constrained by facts. For instance, there is no place on earth that looks like a mountain range just disappeared into a cavern; and if there is, you should, please, point it out to us.

Sure.

Collbard posted some nonsense about what might or might not be in the interior of the earth. He then cited some Bible verses that were utterly unhelpful, and then finally admitted that he had no evidence for what he thought.

Since then he's been on a tirade about the fact that the scientific method requires actual study of the field and some investigation and that without such his opinion would not count. He is advocating a more democratic approach were people listen to his BS without criticism or ridicule.

Fortunately we have the moralizing thought police here to keep us all sane in the way of tradition and popular opinion.
People that cannot think for themselves and only reflect the base thoughts of others, are immune to new thought and discoveries, and find it threatening, so they call for arms and bans and lynch mobs to correct heretics and burn them.

I throw things out there, because I am certain that among the high number who do not get it, there will be one or two, who have done their homework, and are hungry for more. And who know exactly what I am saying.

That's right, martyr. You are the Jeanne d'Arc for the right to arrogantly express ignorance.

However, what we do know will suffice.

No. Science is tough and failure to provide evidence is a fatal flaw. If you can't handle the requirements, you shouldn't play.

Fortunately we have the moralizing thought police here to keep us all sane in the way of tradition and popular opinion.

Be specific: What impact has this had on you?

People that cannot think for themselves...

How have your thoughts been prevented?

and only reflect the base thoughts of others, are immune to new thought and discoveries, and find it threatening, so they call for arms and bans and lynch mobs to correct heretics and burn them.

Be specific: How have you been hindered at all?

Are you not free to keep posting as you have been?

A new age of science or the dark ages in another form?

Neither: its the same old same old.

You say something stupid and we will point it out.

That's nothing.
