How does a blue sky indicate there is no "invisible super being"?

    Just a question for anyone who may have the answer. smile

    No fight, no argument I am very genuinely curious about that.

      Because it's a scientific thing! The blue color of the sky is due to Rayleigh scattering. As light moves through the atmosphere, most of the longer wavelengths pass straight through. Little of the red, orange and yellow light is affected by the air.

      However, much of the shorter wavelength light is absorbed by the gas molecules. The absorbed blue light is then radiated in different directions. It gets scattered all around the sky. Whichever direction you look, some of this scattered blue light reaches you. Since you see the blue light from everywhere overhead, the sky looks blue.

        Ok, and how does any of that indicate there is no invisible super being?

        I am not trying to argue, just want the question answered.
        I get that the sky being blue has a scientific explaination for it being blue. smile

            Very well said Brenda. The thing is, most non believers and most believers are very respectful to the beliefs of others. I have christian friends, I even have muslim friends. But people like this are going to find it very difficult to hold friendships outside of their own belief system, which I find a little sad to be honest.

                What the fuck has religion got to do with the colour of the sky? Its got a lot more to do with science, its all well and good practising a religion......... but a basic education can be rather complimentary to this. You asked a question, and you are getting an answer. This is not the "Atomswifey's Opinion Is The Only One Allowed" forum, religion is one of the worlds most diverse topics. I like to sit on the outside and view them all, whilst you sit on the inside and see nothing but 'evil' outside.

                  I did not say my opinion or belief is the only one allowed. I just say mine is relevant as well to the forum topic. and I did not offer any opinion as to the answer of this question I asked in the first place.

                  And as far as where I sit:
                  "...the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one." 1 John 5:19

                  "...do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.... Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good." Romans 12:2, 9

                  "Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world -- the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life -- is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever." 1 John 2:15-17



                  "Jesus answered, 'My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here." John 18:36

                  "If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you." John 15:19-20

                  "Friendship with the world is enmity to God." James 4:4



                  "...the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it." John 1:5

            “Therefore whoever shall be ashamed of Me and of My Words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man shall also be ashamed of him …”, Mark 8:38

            2 Timothy 1: 6-9
            6)For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7)For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
            8)So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God, 9) who has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace.

    Hubs should actually take the Relious Forum and burn it to the stake because it attracts all the nutters, fills the forums with pure BS and causes most of the arguments. I am sure the religious nuts will find another meeting place, it deff is making Hubs Forums look like an asylum for weirdos.

We then split the $947 in two, that works out at about £40 each...... so an afternoon in the pub, before heading our seperate ways to return to our laptops, where hubpages will be free of the lunatics and, dare I say it, fun again.

    yoshi97posted 7 years ago

    Actually, there is a proper reply to this question, and it doesn not involve calling one a nutter ... though I can understnad how recent uproars might have some in a tiff and lurking for the next round.

    I said I wouldn't be back to the religion forum, but in this thread I see a simple question asking for a simple answer ... though the source might be tainted.

    Therefore, I'll answer the question, as some feel the need to offer barbs instead of earnest replies.

    AW, belief is all about believing in something that can neither be proven or disproven. As such, you can't prove there is a God anymore than someone can prove there isn't.

    Science has never disproved God, it has simply offered explanations for how things occur. Where things get bunched up in a knot is when scientists try to disprove God, or believers try to disprove science.

    You see ... most science cannot be disproven, as it is all based on oberved facts, and thus, is provable again, and again, and again.

    This is why scientists often ahve a problem with the concept of God, as it's something they can't directly observe, measure, or perceive.

    Those who have seen God have never actually seen him physically manifest in front of their eyes and those who have seen his works never saw him visibly doing them. God is given credit, as they perceive great things come from God.

    Also, no one has ever actually heard God's voice. What they have 'heard' is an emotion compelling them to seek out God.

    Does this mean God doesn't exist? Not at all.

    To turn the debate ... black holes definitely exist in the universe. However, we can't see them, measure them, or hear them. We simply know they exist by the effect they have on things around them. Now, if one wanted to, they could say a black hole was God, and science would argue with that ... but who are we to say what a black hole really is if we can't experience it physically?

    So long as one person believes in God ... God exists. Maybe not in physical form, but it's belief that makes what is believed in real, and I think that's what many believers and non-believers forget.

    Also, religion is not a 'right or wrong' thing. You can't tell someone they read the bible wrong or believe things wrong, because we all learn religion differently. With several thousand different religions in existence, who can honestly say which one is the right one? Not one of us, as the leader of each religion claims to have communed with God and heard the ultimate truth.

    That's why I felt the need to leave the religious forum, as another dared to say I had learned everything wrong, which was a direct insult to my beliefs, and I don;t come here to be insulted. After all, a religious person insulting a religious person in a religious forum is like a wealthy man robbing another man at a MAC machine.

    As a person of religion, you should be able to accept the ridcule of those who don't believe, as their doubts exist as a trial to your beliefs. By contesting their mockery, you admit you must defend your beliefs, when you should be certain enough of them to not have to offer any defense.

    It's those who tell others their beliefs are wrong that are the ones you should fear, as they exist only to serve their own agenda ... as witnessed when the Reverand Jim Jones convinced his flock to comit suicide back in 1978, knowing full well what religious doctrine has to say about suicide.

    So, does a blue sky indicate there is no 'invisible super being'? As it can be explained by science, one can easily say God doesn't make the sky blue, but what created the universe in which that sky resides? That ... is the question.

    Simple - you accused me of arguing with you and stated that I would argue that the sky was not blue just for the sake of having an argument.

    I was merely pointing out that making a statement such as "the sky is blue," is a completely different proposition than making the statements you are making such as - "there is a magical super being in the sky that tells me I need to shout at you until you feed me to the lions because I am so incredibly annoying and hate filled."

    So - we both agree there is no invisible super being? I want you to respect that viewpoint because it is the truth. lol

    And of course science has proven there is not a god. That is why you do not want to educate yourself about anything scientific.

Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you... If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you... because they do not know Him who sent Me."

    If there is an invisible super being, it doesn't matter.

    Because if He exists, He is invisible in every way imaginable.

    He does nothing.
    Says nothing.
    Can't be seen.
    Can't be heard.
    No one can agree about Him.

    So what difference does it make if He's there or not? Everything would be just the same if He wasn't.

    Ya know ... I wrote a big long speech backing you up yesterday AW, but after reading some of your responses I have come to believe the band might be playing the right song.

    Rather than offer logical replies you continue to dive into a book for words that were written thousands of years ago which do not constitute proof.

    Read The Illyad or The Odyssey, and ask yourself, did those things actually happen? We might believe so, were it not for the fact we know nowadays they are fables.

    I'm not saying the bible is made-up, but with no concrete proof that it was written back then as an actual account of events, I find it an unreliable testimony.

    Unlike many of 'the flock' I don't find the need to recite versus to back up my faith. I believe, simply because I can't explain everything, and see a need to believe some creator must have created it all. Now, some scientists might call this creator evolution, the big bang, or any name they will - I won't call them wrong, as I agree with them.

    How is that possible? Because creator and creation to me is the same ... an unseen force that makes things happen.

    And does that unseen force tell me to do good things? Actually, I do those on my own, as it works well in the balance of things. Life runs with a better harmony when we work together. Don't believe me? Have two men carry a couch into the same room, but walking in opposite directions. It take forever, you'd see.

    I am happy that you have faith, and some of the ridicule you have received has saddened me - but then again - I do see you as stoking the fires, as you are asking your side to be heard without giving any possibility of listening to the other side.

    That's not a debate ... that's a talking down to ... and that's what many people don't care for.

    You want to tell us about God ... I'll listen as long as you want to speak, as we share many similar views. However, if I disagree with any of your views, I don't care for a 'I'm right and you're wrong' attitude' because 'your book told you so'.

    I have a book to, and my book disagrees with many of your views. Shall we toss them both into a fire and see which book refuses to burn? For sureley the truth would refuse to burn right? In-case you don't know where I am headed with that ... that's trial by ordeal, which states if you live through an awful ordeal, then you are proven to be innocent ... thousands died from this, as people were too foolish to see that any horrible ordeal is unsurvivable, regardless of one's purity.

    And that's where I draw the line, where one tries to determine the purity of another through words meant to provide an oral trial by ordeal.

    Accept that yours is not the only words to be heard, or close your ears and appear aloof. The choice is yours, but I am here to tell you that Chirstianity is not the only religion in the world, and not all religions revolve around a diety - such as budhism. So, while you might think every religious thread must talk about God and Jesus, in all fairness to every religion out there, there must also be threads that DO NOT include them. Otherwise, this forum would need to be renamed 'the Christian forum.

      I did not state in any way that my beliefs are to be the only ones expressed. Nor Did I state that every thread MUST talk about God and Jesus.
      I said that it is only reasonable that being a religion forum one would assume there would be those, like myself talking about God and Jesus and His Word and that in that it is not ridiculous as it was accused that I write in, post in and start threads pertaining to God and Jesus.
      I have a right to do so just as much as anyone else regarding their respective religions.

        Christianity is not the worlds only religion. Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, many Chinese religions, Sikhism. I could list over 20 without even looking them up. Sitting amongst those beliefs are those that can be considered Agonostic/Athiest/Nonreligious/Secular - these make up over 1 billion of the worlds population; and they have just as much right to impose their beliefs on you as you do on us. Which is why it is best if nobody tries to impose their beliefs on anybody, which you have continually and constantly attempted to do. You can only expect people with other beliefs to do what you have done, otherwise you sound almost as hypocritical as your stupid tatty book.

          What did I do wrong? Why did my baby die, and not yours? I believed with all my haert and soul, and I was thrown out of my house, my church, my family.

        Hi everybody. I feel stupid. I wanted to say some stuff to a few people, and chose this moment to qoute, as it was the shortest.
        To all who said "are you ok?"..I am fine. I flipped yesterday, I am sorry. The religion forum is NOT a smart place for me to go, if I am alrady feeling a litle blue. I will stay out of here after this, for a good long while.

        I would really like to simply retract my big anti-prayer speech, but as it got quoted a couple times, I cant.

        Atom's Wifey, you do have a way of pushing buttons. I am sure you mean to share your love of God, it can come out rather abrasive. I had no right to get upset with you, I am sorry. You are under no obligation to respond to anyone, at anytime. When soemone says they are praying for me, it makes me crazy, and it has nothing to do with you. SO, once again, I say I am sorry for my childish behaviour.

        To Yoshi....
        "You did not wish the bad things to occur, nor if you had would this have made them so ... as such ... I will let you know that those who have passed judgment upon you were rash, cruel, and unfeeling, which is why you should reject their judgments and live as good a life as you can"

        Thank you. No one wished bad things to happen. I am trying to live as good a life as I can, and I think that is all anyone can do. Whatever thier belief system is. I have my own issues concerning God, christianity, and all of that, but never should ahve projected them onto someone else. I had a bad day, got a littel crazy wiht the keyboard, and am going to stay out of here for a while.

        Have a great day everyone.

      me? I get confused. If anyone is worried about me, I am fine. I have had some BS to go thru in life, lots in the name of GOD and religion. It would be cool if some religious person could truly explain something, realisiticly, without saying..oh, its your own fault for not believing...I truly feel bad when someone is attacked for thier belief. I want to defend them. It sucks to be made fun of for what you believe in. But..then.... people like Atoms Wifey get me so mad.
      Here it is. I dont have adsense, ban me if ya want. Hubpages is a platform for earning money, and if I break the rules, so be it. I have nothing against that.
      I was raised in a seriouslly religous household. GOD is good and all that crap. Pray, like you mean it. If it doesn't happen, must have been your fault, for not believing good enough.
      I was raped at 18. It was my fault, for going to his house.
      I lost a child at 19. My fault for not being marrired.
      My best freind, and sister in law, lost her child. She was 18 at the time, newly married, and the baby was born with 2 chambers in her heart. She did not survive surgery. This same baby's father, my brother in law, killed himself 2 years ago. Where was God, when he was alone and had the shotgun in his mouth? Where was GOD when I had his two small children and ex wife sobbing, for months on my couch? must of been his fault..or God doesn't exist. I just wish "religious" people, would understand, real life has nothgin to do with..."believing."
      do not pray for me

        Redneck,

        I do not ONLY respond when someone insults me or attacks me. I have posted more answers or responses to people like Fairbear on topics than those who scoff at or mock me.

        I try to respond as best I can to people. But I am not on here 24/7 to do that. Sometimes I have many things going at once. So if I failed to respond it could have been for any number of reasons incuding that which is what happened here this time, I have illnesses which require me to do therapy treatments etc for. I have a scheduled time for each.

        Now that this has been cleared up.

        People who say that all tragedy, suffering, illness etc. is brought on by someone sinning do not fully understand Gods Word.
        Read in Job, where his friends accused him of the very same thing as a result of the suffering he encountered. But we see in this book as you read on that God was actually very upset with them for telling Job that. As it was not true!

        Sin as a whole has brought suffering, death, illness, etc. all of the nastiness into this world. Note there though as I said, sin as a whole, not someones individual sin(s).

        Can it be said that there are times when that has happened? Yes. But it is not in all cases and circumstances that this is so.
        Even as a beliver, I have thought from time to time, "what have I done to deserve this God?"
        But God has a plan and a purpose for everything!
        Even in our tragedies, our sorrow and through our pain.

        I urge you to not blame God for someones misguided and misdirected teachings of His Word.
        You can find comfort and peace in God.
        God Bless
        smile

        Life is a horrible lottery system where those who win often wind up losing much of what they care for and then are led to believe they were the one who submitted the ticket and wanted to win.

        Believe me when I say that life is chaos, happening for methods and reasons that are beyond our control or comprehension. When these events occur people feel helpless and look for someone or something to blame ... unfortunately, you became a target of such blame and I find such behavior irrational and unforgivable.

        The whole concept of sin versus purity is to give a person an idea of the road the majority wants them to follow, and much of this roadmap is provided to avoid the potholes that are out there.

        Still, we can't be all expected to be absolutely pure 100% of the time, as it's an impossibility, nor should we ever be chastised for being human ... as that's what we are.

        I won't recite versus from a book to absolve any blame you might have for what has happened ... instead, I will tell you - human being to human being - I believe you have done the best you can with what life has given you and I do not fault you for the few missteps you might have taken in your past.

        You did not wish the bad things to occur, nor if you had would this have made them so ... as such ... I will let you know that those who have passed judgment upon you were rash, cruel, and unfeeling, which is why you should reject their judgments and live as good a life as you can.

        The world isn't full of evil people, it's just full of people who are easy to find fault with and to blame. As such, you need to remember ... so long as you do the best you can do, no judgment passed before you on this big blue marble need be accepted seriously.

        We all stumble ... but then we must stand up and brush ourselves off, and never accept any judgment other than our own, for we know ourselves the best ...

    That's what true religion is all about ... offering beauty and hope in a world that often feels cruel and unfair ... and that's universal to all faiths that exist, which is why so many have a problem with religion, as they often feel the judgments given and miss the kindness that can be offered. smile

    If anything, this is what a religion forum SHOULD be for ... to allow someone to come in and say they have had a really bad day and for others to offer their compassion and hope that the next day will get better. smile

      well, hopefully in the future I will be able to say I have had a bad day, witthout being nasty. Thanks. Today is going to be good. It is my husbands birthday, and I am going to make him all his favorite foods for dinner as a surprise when he gets out of work.
