I'll assume that if the Firmament was proven to exist, you would believe the Earth is flat, and not a ball flying through space, so if that's the case, then we must find a way to prove the Firmament exists, if possible.

Well I believe in Jesus Christ first and I've studied enough to know the
Bible seems to conflict on the subject because I have looked. So there
you go I figure if God reveals it I'll believe it. Til then nothing gets in
the way of what I do believe.

I didn't ignore anything. This is not direct detection of gravity waves irrespective of the headline. Not even close. Read your own article.

I'm sorry but you're an arrogant idiot who passes off others opinions as your own so i'm not wasting anymore of my time.

"If the beams from both arms arrive back at the crux at the same time, they cancel each other out, and no signal is produced in the system's light detector. This is the normal, expected scenario. But if one of the beams arrives a bit late, a signal is produced, which COULD be evidence of a gravitational wave.

"The LIGO team's claim of direct gravitational-wave detection will very likely undergo intense scrutiny before the scientific community fully accepts the result as sound. There are no other experiments that measure the same kind of gravitational waves that LIGO is sensitive to, so there is currently no way to directly compare the results with another experiment.

The research will be published in an upcoming issue of the Physical Review Letters."

As i'm sure you are aware this does not pass as verified detection of gravity waves. Far from it. Article should be titled "Scientists CLAIM to have directly detected gravity waves". Don't let facts get in the way of your prejudice tho.

There are so many problems with this.

Just curious if you were home schooled, or went to religious school? If you have any knowledge of chemistry or physics, or do those sciences just fly in the face of God in your mind?????

If someone had real evidence for this firmament then I would certainly consider it. I’m a science. I’ll consider any and all evidence. But some quote on someone’s tombstone is not evidence. Neither are videos that could be altered or come from who knows where. Show me something from a reputable source. Show me, you know, exactly how our satellites got past this firmament. And our space rovers. I’d be really curious about how that works.

Good grief.

The fathers of medicine used to believe in the humors and all sorts of things that are not real and that no one believes anymore unless they literally live in a world deprived of logic and evidence.


Von Braun had no reason to lie, he was dead. It's not solid proof, but you certainly cannot dismiss the world's top authority on rocketry, like it means nothing. Nice try though.

You have never seen, in person, or on film, a single rocket, or satellite launch, fly beyond the blue skies above Earth, and you never will, either.

No film TAKEN FROM EARTH shows any rocket or satellite fly beyond our blue skies, too. Are you aware of that fact? You are now.

Why, knowing this, do you believe rockets and satellites have flown into 'orbit'? There is no valid evidence of it, to confirm it is true.

When you try telling me I have no knowledge of sciences, or so forth, please consider why you hold up something to be true, without any valid evidence of it being true. Otherwise, it ends up looking rather foolish, and hypocritical.

So amuater astromoners, professional astromeners, scientists, astronauts etc etc are all lying! Next you will be saying the earth is flat lolololoool

You are coming up with these stupid theories to suit your stupid beliefs, simple as that. You are the type of person that will cry demons if we found intelligent life in the universe. So glad that people like you are a dying breed!

I don't think it's fair to call anyone's opinions stupid, I'm sure they have their reasoning for it.

However personally the whole flat Earth thing is just too far of a stretch for me. I mean there are some compelling arguments but these can generally be de-bunked easily. The only thing i will say is that NASA definitely fake some of their footage from the ISS. The videos showing people pulling wires, clear CGI, the female hair (medusa lady) all scream fake. The reason for faking it, i have no idea but i don't think it's to hide the Earths shape. I've looked through many a telescope and seen with my own eyes other planets which are spherical and follow orbits around the sun which you can calculate. I dabbled with the notion of Geocentrism years ago but my research led me to believe the solar system is indeed heliocentric.

The cosmological axis of evil is a true anomaly which i don't think science can explain properly. Certainly gives some backing to the concept of Earth holding a special place in the universe. (PLEASE RESEARCH THIS IDEA BEFORE ATTACKING IT)

Lawrence Krauss is quoted as follows in a 2006 Edge.org article:

"But when you look at CMB map, you also see that the structure that is observed, is in fact, in a weird way, correlated with the plane of the earth around the sun. Is this Copernicus coming back to haunt us? That's crazy. We're looking out at the whole universe. There's no way there should be a correlation of structure with our motion of the earth around the sun – the plane of the earth around the sun – the ecliptic. That would say we are truly the center of the universe."

Like someone who blindly believes in unsubstantiated claims like 'gravity' exists, and 'gravity waves have been detected', because it comes from your Gods of Science, the Supreme Beings of All Knowledge?


Blindly? The research is peer reviewed and publicly published by EXPERTS and anybody else who wants to fact check or retest. That's like saying when you go to the dentist, you blindly believe his claims about your teeth. He is your god of teeth and a mechanic is your god of car. Why trust them? Why EVER trust an expert about anything?


People who work at the 'Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory' (LIGO) claimed to have detected 'gravity waves' trillions of miles away, in 'space'- the perfect place, because nobody can ever prove that you're making up countless bulls%^* claims, and being 'scientists', Gods of All Knowledge, people just blindly accept all of your claims as being 100% true.


Did you even read the article? It explained the methodology. And I'm sorry but gravity is absolutely measurable and calculable.


Your Gods proclaim to have finally found 'gravity waves', when two 'black holes' merged together "about 1.3 billion years ago"!

You believe it is a 'fact' - one of countless other 'facts', which were told to you, by these all-knowing, all-seeing Gods!


So you know more than these experts? Go ahead and refute their methods. This is just one of the many predictions that general relativity makes, that has been verified empirically. LOL @ pretending they just made it up.

You have completely drank the koolaid. You literally think that all science is a conspiracy against god. It must be sad to be so paranoid and distrusting of experts, many of whom believe in god and support these findings.

You realize that since then, gravity waves have been detect several more times, some even this year. You don't seem to understand that nothing is ABSOLUTE PROOF in science. This merely increases the probability of general relativity being valid (not that it needs it).

OK I'll re-word my argument.

Gravity cannot be measured by any instrument as we don't even have a viable explanation for its force or how it interacts with mass. It is a ficticious force according to general relativity in that it is directly proportional to an objects mass rather than being it's own force.

As we are unable to find a related elementary particle to mediate for the Gravity then all arguments are hypothetical. We have never found or detected this particle.

It's not even a force. More the curvature of space time.

We can see the effects of gravity on mass however we cannot explain the interaction nor can we observe gravity without invoking other forces and scientific principles. Ever seen a gravity detector?

You really should do more research.

If you had you would have known the detection of gravity waves is still in question.

Please see the following article in newscientist. I realise your never going to compromise so probably wasting my breath but contrary to what you might think I know more about physics than the average Joe.

Also sInce your clearly a scholar can you please provide an explanation for the cosmological axis of evil?

Evolutionists readily acknowledge that the origin of life remains a mystery​—although there are many conflicting theories. A leading new atheist, Richard Dawkins, claims that by virtue of the vast number of planets that must exist in the universe, life was bound to appear somewhere. But many reputable scientists are not so sure. Cambridge Professor John Barrow says that the belief in “the evolution of life and mind” hits “dead-ends at every stage. There are just so many ways in which life can fail to evolve in a complex and hostile environment that it would be sheer hubris to suppose that, simply given enough carbon and enough time, anything is possible.”
...

Something to consider before assuming a planet is habitable or has favorable conditions for the chemical evolution of life from nonliving matter...

Space is a dangerous place where lethal radiation is common and meteoroids are an ever-present danger. Yet, our blue planet seems to fly through this galactic “shooting gallery” with relative impunity. Why? Because earth is protected by amazing armor​—a powerful magnetic field and a custom-made atmosphere.

Earth’s magnetic field: The center of the earth is a spinning ball of molten iron, which causes our planet to have a huge and powerful magnetic field that stretches far into space. This shield protects us from the full intensity of cosmic radiation and from potentially deadly forces emanating from the sun. The latter include the solar wind, which is a steady stream of energetic particles; solar flares, which in minutes release as much energy as billions of hydrogen bombs; and explosions in the outer region, or corona, of the sun, which blast billions of tons of matter into space. You can see visible reminders of the protection you receive from the earth’s magnetic field. Solar flares and explosions in the sun’s corona trigger intense auroras, colorful displays of light visible in the upper atmosphere near earth’s magnetic poles.

Earth’s atmosphere: This blanket of gases not only keeps us breathing but also provides additional protection. An outer layer of the atmosphere, the stratosphere, contains a form of oxygen called ozone, which absorbs up to 99 percent of incoming ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Thus, the ozone layer helps to protect many forms of life​—including humans and the plankton we depend on to produce much of our oxygen—​from dangerous radiation. The amount of stratospheric ozone is not fixed. Rather, it changes, growing as the intensity of UV radiation rises. So the ozone layer is a dynamic, efficient shield.

The atmosphere also protects us from a daily barrage of debris from space​—millions of objects ranging in size from tiny particles to boulders. By far the majority of these burn up in the atmosphere, becoming bright flashes of light called meteors. However, earth’s shields do not block radiation that is essential to life, such as heat and visible light. The atmosphere even helps to distribute the heat around the globe, and at night the atmosphere acts as a blanket, slowing the escape of heat.

Earth’s atmosphere and magnetic field truly are marvels of design that are still not fully understood.

Is it only a coincidence that our planet is protected by two dynamic shields?

And is this subject ever considered in any proposed estimated amount of so-called "habitable planets" in any variation of any sort of Drake-like equation? Without similar shielding, you can't really think of it as a "habitable planet". There are other factors often overlooked in discussions about supposed habitable planets elsewhere in the universe.

Your assumptions are killing you. What makes you think I haven't looked into Tour's claims? Why do you think I asked you to break it down and give me his best argument? Because his arguments are mostly personal opinion, not based on any research at all.

Where did I lie again? Oh wait, you just keep making # up. It gets old. You are acting like the kids in your avatar. You make wild claims like saying evolution or natural origin of life is impossible and offer no supporting data. You claim I lie, but haven't demonstrated a single one. Do you really think repeating yourself is a valid argument?

Mass bending space-time is a viable explanation that has made several accurate predictions. It's the best theory we have and detecting gravity waves was a big step forward. We know exactly how gravity interacts with mass, we can determine the exact gravitational force that one object exerts on another. If we didn't we wouldn't have space craft capable of escaping the earth's gravity, nor would we be able to do complex maneuvers like sling shot, where you use the planet's gravity to increase your speed.


As we are unable to find a related elementary particle to mediate for the Gravity then all arguments are hypothetical. We have never found or detected this particle.


False. There might not be an elementary particle.


It's not even a force. More the curvature of space time.


This is true, but again the effects are measurable and act like force.


We can see the effects of gravity on mass however we cannot explain the interaction nor can we observe gravity without invoking other forces and scientific principles. Ever seen a gravity detector?


Ever floated off into space by jumping?

Again, having doubts isn't a refutation. Part of a scientist's job is to doubt findings and try to disprove them. Regardless of the exact specifications we know gravity is real and all available evidence points to the bending of space-time as the cause of it. There is no better explanation at this point, and denial of gravity is pretty silly. It's not a scientific theory because it's fun. It's made many accurate predictions and everything we have observed thus far only confirms it. Otherwise it would be a hypothesis, not a theory.

If you don't mind, I'd like to add my 2 cents. If you are talking about the apparent alignment of the solar system with some of the structures in the CMB, then in my opinion, that alignment is likely to be a coincidence.

I say this because the galaxy is a chaotic place. Gravitational effects on passing stars and other objects jostle protoplanetary disks around, making their orientations rather random.

That's not to mention the galactic mergers that have happened, and will happen again, that can further affect the orientation of solar systems.

An example from the past is the Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy. The Milky Way's shape likely changed substantially 2 billion years ago (a time that the solar system existed) when it merged with the Sagittarius Dwarf galaxy. That major re-organizing of the Milky way is believed to have created the spiral arms, and it likely re-oriented solar systems like ours. An example in the future would be that when the Andromeda Galaxy and the Milky Way merge in about 4 or 5 billion years, the resulting gravitational forces will likely re-orient our solar system.

That is to say, in the long term life of the universe the CMB would have remained relatively constant while the orientation of our solar system would likely not. With that in mind, it seems the current orientation aligning with CMB structures is temporary -- and a coincidence.
