January 29, 2019 Reply gatolle ferro atheists are not qualified to discuss if the earth is flat or not. He can states his opinion but that's it. Ask yourself why the United States doesn't allow anybody or any other government to access or to visit the antarctica where the?? ? Why does the government have a restricted access there? why? are they hiding something…? or maybe they know if somebody goes there, they will see the earth is flat because it has an end cliff where you can see the orbit of the earth not as rounded but circular flat cone? or perhaps they are other species beings living there or something???? a different society ? or perhaps there is something that refute and make science false in many claims? By the way, gravity doesn't stay stagnated but moves in motion either to the side or up and down but not in rotation with stationary position. Albert Stein explains it this way. and also gravity moves faster in motion when speed or energy is pushing through. So according to Albert Stein…the earth can only move in those directions but the sphere shape will never stay stagnated. just like a wheel going fast with force will make the bicycle or car go faster in one direction.

February 9, 2019 Reply Drake Danos There is no net force in the vertical direction. There is centripetal force and a perpendicular velocity. The first sentence is just earth obeying Newton’s first law. The earth drops about 16 feet every 5 miles. All objects near earth drops about 16 feet in the first second of free fall without air resistance. A satellite moving parallel to earth’s surface at 5 miles/second will move over 5 miles in one second while it drops 16 feet in the same second. This is the same thing with earth and the sun. February 14, 2019 Reply j g So how come God couldn't explain His religion to the billions of Chinese, Indians, Japanese and others who think Christiantiy is childish nonsense? And why did He waste time and resources of the other planets when we can't live there? Just decorations? And why volcanoes, earthquakes and plate tectonics? Just nail down the land and make is stay there. He's a wasteful old guy. Maybe that's why the other folks think He's full of crap.

First off, Japanese and Mexican are nationalities, not races. Secondly, race is an arbitrary social construct with no basis in biology – otherwise, a new race would be created everytime that two people from different racial groups had children. Thirdly, even if those first two things weren't wrong, why does that have anything to do with any god, let alone Yahweh? March 29, 2019 Reply Joe Barnett What's holding it down? Checkmate lol.

Otherwise, the earth would continue to fall into the universal darkness forever and ever. May 3, 2019 Reply NYCBG The greatest value of this show is not that it provides the stage for discourse about religion, but rather, that it exposes the stupidity and the hypocrisy that surround us. I can understand that people believed in all those surreal myths centuries or even, millennia ago. What else did they have to help them cope with sickness, death, freakish displays of geology gone amok – events like volcano eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis ? Why, even the change of seasons was a mystery that required some "supernatural" explanation ! For god's sake, they were flogging themselves to death in the hope that such penance would assuage the "sin" that had unleashed the plague upon them! Just one out of countless examples of the blessed marriage between ignorance and religion/superstition. Have we not moved even one inch beyond that level of delusion ? It seems not.

May 17, 2019 Reply Nicholas Holder I don't understand science therefore you are wrong. May 18, 2019 Reply John Caruso These men are very foolish and it is saddening that you believe this to be your guidance. These type of men show you people who live by faith but are not “intellectuals” for a reason. They cannot debate intellectual theologians because they will look like children. Gods word written in the Bible and his creation are harmonious. If you took the time to study, think about what it’s saying you would see it is scientifically flawless. If you approach the Bible not wanting truth you will not find it. I am amazed at the things I’ve found that man could not have known or predicted 4000 years ago or more in biblical scripture. Seek and you shall find, ask and you shall receive. God is true. God is glorious. These men who ask for evidence have been provided more than enough.

August 23, 2019 Reply Chet Simmons There is no up or down in space it's relative, but if there was a god who is said to have made us in his image, then logic would conclude that he/she has two hands thus would only be capable of holding up two planets at any given time. Unless, as i'm sure you'll argue, god's hands are as big as the universe, even though the universe isn't on a flat plain.

What gives Earth stability in space is another large object called the sun, that's a million times bigger than Earth. Our planet is 93,000,000 miles away from the sun and traveling at an orbital speed around the sun of about 67,000 mph. The size, mass, composition, and finely tuned nuclear fusion of the sun are all intricately calculated to keep us alive. The size, composition, mass, tilted rotation, orbital speed of Earth, and our moon's orbit around Earth, are all intricately calculated to keep us "up" (and not falling into the sun) for billions of years… These are 10 of millions of mechanical functions that need to operate within tight margins of error — for Earth to be held up and support life for billions of years.
