To everything that turns turns turns.
There is the Sun, that burns and burns and burns.

Our behemoth star on the universal stage is one of trillions. As I understand it Sol. is one of the smaller stars compared to the rest that are scattered about. How does it burn day in and day out? Everyday, it sits in our sky and burns at an unheard of temperature.

Of course it does, there would be no day if it didn't. No anything else either. So how does this happen? How
does something sit in it's own space in the universe, hung in the sky to burn for as long as the earth will turn?

Does not the earth seem to be placed in it's spot in the solar system? It does, and no one can say it dosn't without being in denial IMO. It would be like saying the oil in the gulf, dosn't look like the blood of a dead man. I believe the sun is a miracle we take for granted everyday.

A gigantic burning ball of fire that burns in constant? I would love to hear some of the explanations our scientific communty has for this miracle. Atheists, Evolutionists, Astronomers, Christian scientists whom ever. Give me a little or alot
on just how the sun burns every freeken day at a constant and never burns up or needs to be refueld. Where is
the gas line. What is it that just keeps burning and burning?

I have plenty of space so don't be shy. If you like, you can also endeavor me on the seemingly perfect placement of the Earth in our star system, in relation to the Sun. I just look at this existence everyday and see miracles all around. One proof of God we get is in his handywork. So if you will, if you can, take me from miracle to mundane.

Oh and no Titen I don't want to smell your finger.You sick pup.

Hmm, interesting!

I will try my best to answer your questions!

To my own understanding, Sol is one of the top 10 percent in mass in our galaxy, relative to other stars.


So how does this happen? How
does something sit in it's own space in the universe, hung in the sky to burn for as long as the earth will turn?


How does the sun 'sit' in space? Imagine space as a large, open area. Things are in the position they are in based on physics and gravity. It 'appears' to be floating because there is no 'floor' or 'ceiling' in space, as far as we know.


Does not the earth seem to be placed in it's spot in the solar system? It does, and no one can say it don't without being in denial IMO.


It is of my own opinion that the earth may SEEM like it is placed in it's spot of the solar system, but this could be applied for any heavenly body. In my opinion, it is there naturally, not for any specific reason.


A gigantic burning ball of fire that burns in constant? I would love to hear some of the explanations our scientific communty has for this miracle.


The sun doesn't necessarily 'burn'. It goes through a process of nuclear reactions, basically converting hydrogen to helium. This creates heat.


One proof of God we get is in his handywork


I cannot say anything about this, because I know not if a God exists. I can only say that in my own perspective and my own view, these things have appeared the way they are through natural causes.

Thank you for the thread!

Kind regards

Our behemoth star?
By stars standards it is average. And later in your thread you go on to say it is one of the "smaller stars compared to the rest scattered about" so you in a way contradict yourself. The sun is mainly composed of helium and hydrogen they they are flying about in chaos and when they crash into each other it causes combustion which in turn makes our sun, not only is it still burning but it's going to get bigger when the hydrogen runs out it will just be mainly composed of helium which will clash into each other, helium is more combustive then hydrogen, so our sun will expand, and it isn't "hung in the sky" it is floating there. And the gulf spill is oil not blood and it doesn't really look like blood to me. There is no proof that we were "placed" where were at, in my opinion we just formed here. And in my opinion the porridge theory isn't necessarily true thats just what we know to be true, other life in the universe could thrive in hotter climates, etc. Also there are things on our own planet called extremophiles which proves even by what we know life could exist on other planets! Theres are trillions of stars in the sky, our sun is not special, and so far the life that it harbors is but we may discover one day that we are not so special, we may in fact discover we are un special, that there is life elsewhere and plentiful at that! But for now SETI do your thing.
By the way there is no proof that there is a god, or gods for that matter!

Maybe this'll help clear things up for you...


It's hard to really fathom the size of our own home, the earth, much less the size of a flaming ball of gas that could fit 1,000,000 earths inside it.


Although I'm agnostic, I do have to admit that the universe is pretty amazing, and sometimes things do seem to be set up just a little too perfectly. It's something I often wonder about.
The sun isn't burning an endless supply of fuel though. It will eventually become a red giant, and I hope humans will have found another home by then.
Although that's billions of years in the future, it makes me sad to think about it.

so you in a way contradict yourself


You're talking about separate statements with nothing in comparison.
You can say I contradict my self in a way, but you are wrong.
ET-AL Our son is a behemoth compared to earth, but below average compared to other stars. Look a little harder next time. I'm sure yoiu can do better if you're looking to ridicule.
Well there is no proof of God for you. That would be closer to the truth.

Hitotsumami
A very good post indeed I thank you for that.

Astrithr
Thank you for the vid, things are so much more clear to me now.

One, that is not ridicule, I am no troll and that is what I believed to be true, and although you could have been more clear, I suppose it was an honest mistake, not that that has to do with extremophiles, there being no proof of a god or gods, our sun not being special, why the sun never burns out, or how it's not hung in the sky or any other valid points I made, I don't know. If all you can do is point out a possibly small mistake then I have done a good job at answering you post.

No doubt which is why I stared your post as well. I guess the bouncing laughy head made it seem like ridicule. Anyways watch out for that one feeling I have left. I'm very protective of it.


So name the one thing with in the confines of our own atmosphere that
burns constantly like the sun?

Um I don't know of anything in our own atmosphere that burns constantly like the sun, what is your point?

K You need to give a little more attention to the way I'm using words.

Within the confines of our own atmosphere there is something that burns at a constant.

The Earths core.
Now explain one more thing that burns at a constant for me.

Interesting post!

I will try to answer your question. But first.


Within the confines of our own atmosphere there is something that burns at a constant.

The Earths core.


As far as I know, the atmosphere of the earth starts at the surface and goes outwards for about 10,000 KM. The earth's core is not located within the atmosphere of the planet.


Now explain one more thing that burns at a constant for me.


In or on the earth? I know of nothing else. If you're trying to correlate this with the sun, there is a problem.

The inner core is not hot for the same reasons the sun is. The core of the earth is hot because of pressure pushing down on it from the other layers of earth.

That's why I said within the confines of our atmosphere, The Earth itself being within the confines of it's own atmosphere.

So I have never heard of the tremendous presures causing the core to become molten. I did suspect there would be a different answer though.
Apart from what causes the sun to burn.

What she said.





no but honestly our atmosphere is not composes of the same chemicals as the sun so their is no connection. They are two different things!

Ah, the inner core is solid, the outer core is not. I will post a few quotes to better explain.


The outer core is not under enough pressure to be solid, so it is liquid even though it has a composition similar to that of the inner core.



The range of pressure in Earth's inner core is about 330 to 360 gigapascals... and iron can only be solid at such high temperatures because its melting temperature increases dramatically at these high pressures.

I hope this better explains things.

Also


Now explain one more thing that burns at a constant for me.


Why do you ask this question?

Kind regards

Tremendous now what are the three factors that must exist before fire ?

A source of ignition

heat

and oxygen.

Fire? Before I answer, I would like for you to note that fire does not relate to the sun or the cores of the earth.

The sun is not made of 'fire'. The heat and light is the process of thermonuclear reactions. Just like when a nuclear bomb goes off, it doesn't shoot fire everywhere.

The cores of the earth also aren't fire. They are molten metal.

Now, to answer your question. What three factors must exist before fire?

Oxygen, Fuel, and Heat.

I understand that the eaths core is molten metal. There still has to be oxygen for this to occur. No?

No, oxygen is not required. Extreme pressure = extreme heat.

That should help put things into perspective to how small our star actually is, it is incredibly small. Infact its pretty much a joke how small our star actualy is.

To the OP theres litteraly millions of pages of information on the internet that explain the inner workings of how the shiny sparkle sparkles in the sky came to be.
