The t3rrorists are probably keeping track of the body count...meanwhile, most of the populace is unaware that a war is ongoing....t3rrorists think in terms of decades and centuries. By the time we realize there is a war going on there may be too few left to stop it.

Billy, Just remember scientist believed the sun rotated around a flat earth
No, mostly religious people believed that because the Bible told them so. You do realize that Galileo, who was an actual scientist - on of the first actually - was persecuted for saying the earth revolved around the sun. Even the smart Greek thinkers knew the Earth was a sphere and revolved around the sun.
No, it's a mistake to suggest that "scientists" believed this or that thing which has proven to be false, and everybody else knew the truth. It's like the theory of evolution. Once it was proposed and understood the thinkers adopted the idea including religious people (jeez today even the Pope believes in evolution as well as most educated Christians). Today only the outside fringe don't believe in evolution and I think it's safe to say that those few are people who adhere to the idea that the the Bible is literally true, including mass murders of women and the unborn and children, one after another, by God.
Wrong. It was the Catholic Church’s belief at that time. It never came from the Bible. The Catholic Church has done extensive research in astrology (very poorly during that period) and still does.
They assumed because God created man in his image that we would naturally be at the centre of this universe that God created, which at the time they believed was limited to our solar system. This is why they believed the Sun revolved around the Earth. That and from Earth that appear to be what is going on because we can’t tell that the Earth is rotating just by casually looking up in the sky.
Do you know what the word “theory” means?
How’d that Big Bang “Theory” work out? Not too well huh? It has been thoroughly disproven. Until definitive scientific evidence is presented a theory is not fact.
Certain aspects of evolution have been proven, but not even close to the whole theory. The science will change many times before we find out the truth.
Yes, back before the scientific method when scientists were religious people and considered the Bible to be accurate sceintifically.
If not for science we would still believe that. Man is as God was. God is as Man someday hopes to be.
Strange, plenty of passages in the Bible suggest an immovable Earth and a sun that revolves around it.
Then spoke Joshua to the Lord in the day when the Lord gave the Amorites over to the men of Israel; and he said in the sight of Israel, "Sun, stand thou still at Gibeon, and thou Moon in the valley of Aijalon." And the sun stood still...
As with many passages in the Bible, that was interpreted one way a few hundred years ago and another way now. And there are many passages that also say the Earth is "immovable" which were once taken as literal, now metaphorical. You can say the Bible doesn't address the Earth being immovable and the sun revolving around it, but only because the Bible is interpreted differently now.
You, friend, are confused about the meaning of the way scientists use the word "theory." But I'm here to help: http://www.livescience.com/21491-what-is-a-scientific-theory-definition-of-theory.html Einstein's "theory" of gravity isn't some unproven hunch, it's a mathematical description of the the way bodies with mass interact.
And I challenge you to provide a link that the Big Bang has been "thoroughly disproven." That's false. At issue is whether the Universe began as an infinitely dense point (a singularity) or an almost infinitely dense point. Apparently you really don't understand what the Big Bang is.
Tis a myth perpetrated by liberals that the Catholic Church persecuted Galileo - after all - Copernicus had developed this idea 100 years before. Religion and science are not at odds they work in harmony - ask any "HONEST" scientist.
@moderaterepublican Except that...you're wrong. The scientists of the time (The VAST MAJORITY of whom of who were religious INCLUDING GALILEO) believed this because of Aristotles scientific texts. It was actually SCIENTISTS of the time who largely opposed this idea, inflamed the press, and caused the controversy, not any church. http://www.ukapologetics.net/galileo.htm. Here's an interesting tidbit for you YAHOO ANSWERS states that Galileo was killed for stating that the earth moved around the sun. I've copied and pasted the following for you from Yahoo answers...
Name one person who was killed for saying the earth moves round the sun?
He proposed contrary to church believe that the earth moves round the sun.

So MOST people that are able to use Yahoo believe Galileo was killed for saying that the earth moved around the sun. They're wrong of course. But you approve of this ignorance of history I suppose?
Blinky, it was Christians that formulated The Scientific Method, and a Catholic Monk that used it so perfectly that his atheist/agnostic contemporary "scientists" rejected his research and refused to publish it in peer reviewed journals.
No actually as i explained to you before, the early scientific method goes back further than the Christians, who didn't even use the rudamentary method for centuries as they thought Socratatic method was how things should be done.
When the Christians were in charge of science, it was called the Dark Ages.
And it wasn't until we entered a new age and became enlightened as a society that we began science in the western world again.
You are so far out in left field it' not even remotely funny. Have you done any research on this toic at ALL? I don't mean reading things that support what you already believe either as that seems to be what you have done. Let me help you out just a bit.
"It's not hard to kick this nonsense to pieces, especially since the people presenting it know next to nothing about history and have simply picked up these strange ideas from websites and popular books. The assertions collapse as soon as you hit them with hard evidence. I love to totally stump these propagators by asking them to present me with the name of one - just one - scientist burned, persecuted, or oppressed for their science in the Middle Ages. They always fail to come up with any. They usually try to crowbar Galileo back into the Middle Ages, which is amusing considering he was a contemporary of Descartes."
Just little tid bit to get you excited about having your view totally dismantled by an atheist.
No Blinky, you never explained this to me before - and that's good. Look up Roger Bacon, Sir Isaac Newton.
Yes, parts of what is now called The Scientific Method were fashioned long ago, but to bring it altogether and add the necessary components to complete it was done by Christians.
You should study more.

Conservatives will loose as long as abortion, gay marriage, women’s rights, and anything else that the left’s immoral sick minds can argue to keep the real issues from being talked about.

Jesus, Himself said”You will know them by their fruits”. Do you think that there could be judgement involved by knowing them by their fruits?

Ray Lewis also stated that if the NFL Ref strike did not end the vunnables would riot and loot. Maybe this is the result of no NFL games.

The correct answer should be, “At this point, Bob what difference does it make?”
