Nice graphic! Just guessing, but I assume that is Saturn.

I just might be Saturn ?

But after falling for the Space Shuttle photos I really do not know. It is a very nice graphic

Yes well one of the main differences between Science and Religion is that the sole purpose of science is NOT to fool you while the sole purpose of Religion is...

Explanation: This image of Saturn could not have been taken from Earth. No Earth based picture could possibly view the night side of Saturn and the corresponding shadow cast across Saturn's rings. Since Earth is much closer to the Sun than Saturn, only the day side of the planet is visible from the Earth. In fact, this image mosaic was taken in January by the robotic Cassini spacecraft now orbiting Saturn. The beautiful rings of Saturn are seen in full expanse, while cloud details are visible near the night-day terminator divide.

Science is in agreement with what I believe is the true story of the Bible. You do not know everything I believe and I do not know where you get your BSr.
I do not attend a church because it is religion and I do not play that game so in the future SmashBrain do not assume that you know what I believe. Love to jump on things just for the sake of the jump. I see sbl had to fix your problem on more than one occasion. You seem to be the problem more than having a friendly debate you wreck a friendly debate.

I have made no assumptions about your beliefs. You are the one quoting scientifically impossible "miracles" from the Bible without one ounce of provocation on my part.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Nothing wrong with using the Bible as a tool for how to live your life, and/or raise a family. The problems arise when you start talking about healing chopped off ears.

I disagree. You can't really compare the two this way. The word "science" comes from the Latin word "scientia," which means "knowledge." Science is the act of seeking knowledge. This is a very broad term as it applies to ANY knowledge no matter what topic it covers. This is why there are so many different varieties of science.

Religion, on the other hand, is the act of seeking knowledge that is somewhat less material than many forms of science. Religion involves seeking wisdom, enlightenment, the ability to care for each other, the ability to live a life with meaning, and many other gifts that could be considered divine by those who otherwise do not have them. The two are not meant to be the same and probably never will be.

There as as many foolish scientists as their are foolish clergy, so you can't really compare the two in this respect.

Most people on the planet believe in some form of religion, while the minority who doesn't is under 10%.

Freud had something to say about people who believe the entire world is wrong.

Religion is in no way shape or form the act of seeking knowledge.

It's a commitment or devotion to a religious belief and/or practice. Isaac reads his Bible everyday....he's not LOOKING for truth, he thinks he's already found it.

Once upon a time most of the people thought the Earth was flat and we found out those "10%" who didn't, were the geniuses.

Science isn't a Democracy....being in the majority is irrelevant. What does Freud have to say about that?

Explanation: A new spacecraft is headed for the outer Solar System. Named New Horizons, this robotic explorer passed Jupiter last week after being launched only in early 2006. New Horizons is being pulled by Jupiter's gravity to a greater speed toward its next target: Pluto in 2015. During its encounter with Jupiter, New Horizons was able to capture new images of many Jovian moons, Jupiter's complex and ever-changing atmosphere, and Jupiter's Little Red Spot, pictured above. Formed over the past few years from several smaller storms, Jupiter's Little Red Spot survived a near miss with Jupiter's better-known Great Red Spot last year. The above image of Jupiter covers over twice the diameter of the Earth.

Explanation: This dramatic image features a dark red Moon during a total lunar eclipse -- celestial shadow play enjoyed by many denizens of planet Earth last Saturday. Recorded near Wildon, Austria, the picture is a composite of two exposures; a relatively short exposure to feature the lunar surface and a longer exposure to capture background stars in the constellation Leo. Completely immersed in Earth's cone-shaped shadow during the total eclipse phase, the lunar surface is still illuminated by sunlight, reddened and refracted into the dark shadow region by a dusty atmosphere. As a result, familiar details of the Moon's nearside are easy to pick out, including the smooth lunar mare and the large ray crater Tycho. In this telescopic view, the background stars are faint and most would be invisible to the naked eye.

Tomorrow's picture: 'e clips it.

Cool pic.. I managed to catch just a little bit of that eclipse this past weekend. Early in the evening, the moon looked like just an orange sliver.. and then some hours later it was full moon.
