There is no friction in a vacuum, friction is the result of two particles or bodies of particles moving against each other, for example, a car on a road. Space is a vacuum, a vacuum has nothing in it, so nothing to cause friction. However, there is gravity, and gravity can act over massive distances moving objects a tiny amount over protracted time periods.
People are so incredibly ignorant to have blind faith in the bible because it gives different versions of the same event. It is the most ignorant thing in the world, and a rat must have more intelligence than these human beings, because they just stubbornly refuse to acknowledge the fact that there are separate versions of what took place for the same event. They refuse to even acknowledge that they are choosing what to believe because the gospels do not agree with each other. They think that they are showing love to God by believing in human beings, whether or not the human beings lied to them. They will be put to shame, because it turns out that the humans did lie to them, and they could not be trusted. Just because of blind faith, the people being lied to refuse to acknowledge facts.
I believe what you mean is there is no friction in a complete vacuum. Space nor Interstellar space is not a complete vacuum and about 80% of the universe is dark matter of which you nor anyone knows what it is.
No one has demonstrated a complete vacuum with zero friction to my knowledge and if it could be demonstrated as perpetual motion it would always remain a theory till the end of this universe. Then if the universe came to an end, perpetual motion would not be perpetual. What you are taught is considered facts while it is not facts at all. It is theory at its best and shall remain so.
Even the international space station has to reboost its orbit every once in a while to offset the effect of friction or drag.
This leads me to believe that the laws of today were not the laws of 4.5 billion years ago. How can I say this? By the science of evolution. If the same laws were effectual 4.5 billion years ago as they are today then we should have the same evolutionary factors today as in 4.5 billion years ago.
I also have repeatedly said that Kepler was neither British or American being that he was a German. Americans were recognized as being Americans in 1585 and has nothing to do with this conversation as being a nation. America became colonized in 1607. I said nothing contrary to those facts. What I did say was that Kepler did not use British or American math in 1601
Space is as close to a complete vacuum as you can get, there is no such thing as a complete vacuum as particles can pop in and out at any time, however, the tiny amount of particles and vast spacing between them in space renders and interaction between them and other materials as frictionless.
A heavenly body that is in motion in space will lose motion in varying degrees due to drag. Drag is caused primarily by gases, particles and dark matter of which we know very little
Drag is a force that acts in the opposite direction to motion, in a fluid, a vacuum is not a fluid and therefore bodies moving through space do not experience drag. you keep talking about dark matter and how this affects friction, but you also mention that nothing is known about it. can I suggest that both can't be true, either we know what dark matter is and its effect on the coefficient of friction or we don't.
"Drag is caused primarily by gases, particles and dark matter of which we know very little."
Dark matter is about 80% of the volume of our estimated universe. Naturally, we do not know if this figure is true but it is a guess that is accepted as fact.
If this decay continues we can realize [guess] as much as 82 or more hours in a day in another 42 billion years. The rotation of this earth [according to your science] is rotating slower from its creation. Biblically speaking, that is exactly what the Christian bible teaches along with the teaching that before this entire universe winds down this world will wobble and be removed out of its present place. That could mean that the sun's relation with the earth will indeed change and cause great destruction to all life on this earth. No proof, just theology
This teaches that in the scientific world the scientists can change their science and call it correction while a religion can change their religion and they call it being wrong. Simply a matter of brain washing at its best.
Religion, on the other hand, should essentially never change, as there is NO EVIDENCE, to back up any of the assertions made. The Bible, is not evidence of anything, it is a book written by man, with the books chosen by a politically motivated council in Nicaea. You talk about brainwashing, and yet here you are desperately trying to change evidence-based scientific observation, theory and fact to fit your understanding of some writings with no evidence to back up their veracity. Who do you think is brainwashed?

I think an open mind is the key to everything in life, science and God are not mutually exclusive. What does annoy me though is this idea that people can read the Bible, "have a vision" or an interpretation epiphany and that somehow this new "information" is from God and if science has any evidence to the contrary then bd science because words.
Text The bible does not supply evidence or proof of anything, it is a text, by your own admission science did, however, prove that Pontious Pilate did exist. Also if the Bible is evidence, why is there so much contradiction? if it was evidence or proof then there would be no contradiction, at all.

How does religion make people so blind, I cannot figure out.
