"I think it too pushy for my tastes, much of the time the question was less answered than it was used to ask what it had to to with religion.  While what you wrote down is correct I think that it would have been better to treat the…"

"It is a simple matter for them to dismiss what you say about Herod's slaughter as a simple matter of the sites not having been discovered yet.  They could even point out that scientists have not given up the search and that there are quite…"

"I misstated in my previous comment. I should have written:  energy does not end, it changes form.  "The first law of thermodynamics, an expression of the principle of conservation of energy, states that energy can be transformed…"

"If the universe was in the form of energy than it still existed, albeit in another form.  As for your quantum scenario, I have only knowledge enough of quantaum to understand that it is very counterintuitive and I shall therefore accept your…"

Joan Denoo replied to Travis Finell's discussion Common apologetic arguments, and good answers to them
"Please explain to me why you say "the universe has always existed". What evidence do you have to support that statement?  Perhaps there will be shrinking back to a big crunch, it depends on how strong Dark Matter and Dark Energy is, I…"
