If you quote that idiot I'm going to vote you down.
I do not want go see it.
So good to see you guys cannibalizing each other.
What other thoughts you want me to contribute?
I could also talk about how the ancient Indians (not Native Americans) had nukes. Or how the Egyptian pyramids are way older than people say.
One of the consequences of questioning accepted "fact" is that you have... different ideas.
Regardless, the Muslims believe the sun sets into a pool at night.
10.1 The inverse-square law
Up to this point, all I have told you about gravity is that, near the surface of the Earth, the gravitational force exerted by the Earth on an object of mass m is F G = mg. This is, indeed, a pretty good approximation, but it does not really tell you anything about what the gravitational force is where other objects or distances are involved. The first comprehensive theory of gravity, formulated by Isaac Newton in the late 17th century, postulates that any two “particles” with masses m1 and m2 will exert an attractive force (a “pull”) on each other, whose magnitude is proportional to the product of the masses, and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. Mathematically, we write (This didn't show up well, cuz it was a fraction) Here, r12 is just the magnitude of the position vector of particle 2 relative to particle 1 (so r12 is, indeed, the distance between the two particles), and G is a constant, known as “Newton’s constant” or the gravitational constant, which at the time of Newton still had not been determined experimentally. You can see from Eq. (10.1) that G is simply the magnitude, in newtons, of the attractive force between two 1-kg masses a distance of 1 m apart. This turns out to have the ridiculously small value G = 6.674×10−11 N m2/kg2 (or, as is more commonly written, m3kg−1s−2). It was first measured by Henry Cavendish in 1798, in what was, without a doubt, an experimental tour de force for that time (more on that later, but you may peek at the “Advanced Topics” section of next chapter if you are curious already). As you can see, gravity as a force between any two ordinary objects is absolutely insignificant, and it takes the mass of a planet to make it into something you can feel.
Just wondering why it is evident that all the other celestial bodies that we can see are spheres...yet they still maintain that the Earth is the only pancake flat thing going. Just wondering.

So you do have a 'BELIEF', such as you 'BELIEVE that the earth is a sphere, unless of course you are only taking a wild guess that it is a sphere, despite all the evidence to prove the fact that it is a sphere.
Of course we agree. We both acknowledge that Jesus DID NOT CONDEMN SLAVERY.
