"Indeed - this is exactly what quasars are; giant black holes with giant accretion disks. The material in the accretion disks rubs against all the other material, heats up and starts to glow, effectively. Since the speeds are to phenomenal, the heat…"

"Until I read some more of the stuff, I'll have to hold off on asking questions. Although - I have told my opposition that every time he brings up the bible, I will bring up LotR - both with things to teach you, and both fairly impressive, if…"

"That was a great question you posed to them Mick.  Funny that they couldn't answer something that should have seemed so simple to them.~ Melinda p.s.  I tried several times to read the bible cover-to-cover, both old & new. …"

"It appears to "ammo up" as it were, you really need to know where they're coming from - in a literary sense. The apparent logical hoop-jumping and acrobatics is something I have, thus far, seemed unable to perform."

"Yeah, I also use this. Then I hit 'em with Matthew 5:18. Jesus says ( I'm not gonna quote direct, just summarize ), that not one word of the law--OT-- would pass away until the end of time. So the "morals" of the OT are still in…"
