    You missed my point.

    Mind gives birth to imagination and religion.

    I'm as sure of the non-existence of a god as I am of that second moon.
    The god hypothesis - "there is at least one being which is more original than us, caused us to be (whether by creating us out of dirt or by manipulating matter and genes over millions of years) and cares about us (whether in a good or a bad way) and wants us to do his will" - is as falsifiable as the second moon hypothesis.

    (the italized part) The moon wouldn't matter because it would not affect us or the Earth if that invisible mass did not pull back. Its like that there is a civilization with vast cities like our on this very planet, 'XEPT its invisbal :O BUT TRUST ME, its there. and im getting an awsome bj from the ghost of meghan fox. forever.

    Besides, how would something be invisible? like on the atomic scale? While that stuff is interesting, it has no part in real science.

    So your saying that a god is "as falsifiable as the second moon hypothesis."????

    Shiet: Wtf is going on with you?

    Frankly, I believe that a God is not provable, in either direction. I flop back and forth on the idea. So...I just focus on the well being of my mentality.

    And by the way, that had so many grammatical/punctuational errors, I have a headache.

    I am a fluff poster and I want to throw you out.

    Also, I would like to add that I also believe that while there may not have been some conscious being of love, or whatever, something created us. And I guess I shall name it God.

    What he's saying is that since correlation implies causation but doesn't mean it must be so (like lack of pirates causing global warming). So really there is the faintest possibility that everything in the universe following the laws that we have observed is just coincidence. But like he said, the chances of it are extremely low, with about a 0.99999999999... chance that the laws of physics would not allow this, but it's not impossible that we're wrong the whole time. However, mathematically, 0.99... IS technically 1, so...

    How is it 1, exactly? As far as I was aware, it was mathematically NOT 1.

    0.999... - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia...

    And particularly this mathematical equation, which I think is the simplest example.

    x=0.999...
    10x=9.999...
    10x-x=9.999...-0.999...
    9x=9
    x=1

    This really bothers me. Does that mean that 2.9999.... is also 3? And so on and so forth?
    What about other infinite repeating decimals?
