    what cannot be destroyed, but only change form? What links everything that exists (all that can be seen, and all that cannot) across the universe? What is one thing that fire, wind, or the center of a black hole had in common?

    Energy... God's communication device, from one side of the universe to the other, and everything in-between, from the unseen nano particles to the unavoidably large, Everything is connected by energy. Everything is connected to God!

    Big Bang, what sparked it? What launch them, put them into orbit, or made them collide? Life, who created it (even in its simplist form)? Who or what created every element?

    Are we Sims, and God is our Gamer? (a little humor)...

    Did you mean 'gravity'?

    An electron at one end of the universe exerts a pull on an electron at the other end of the universe.

    In fact, there is no such a thing as 'zero gravity' --- scientists have moved the goalpost to 'microgravity'.

    This is where things get complicated, once the force of gravity reaches a certain weakness, it runs into the granularity of the universe as defined by quantum mechanics. At that point it hypothetically has no effect. This is one of those complicated issues where the laws of physics as we know them break down- because we don't know everything. :)

    Why do you expect atheists to know everything about how the universe began? The truth is, they don't. Nobody does.

    I'll save you a lot of time: The answer to life, the universe, and everything is 42.

    Well, not everything. Every event is in its own lightcone in spacetime, and nothing beyond that cone can be influenced by that event.

    What, planets? They're just aggregates of interstellar dust.

    Inorganic chemicals reacting to form organic chemicals (micelles, monomers, lipid bilayers, amino acids, etc). That's the simplest form of life.

    Novae.

    If we're in a game, I'm dying to know what the cheat codes are ^_^.

    That's not exactly what moving the goalposts means... but ragarth explained microgravity well, so all's good.

    *points to Calculus, which requires all manner of proofs and yet allows for the basis of much advancement in societies, in many things scientific and not so. Old post, I know, but I had to reply to that*

    I used to be one of those rabid dogs. That was until I started playing Tomb Raider and my natural inclination not to be told what to do took over.


    Depends on the method of contact, these gods. Call to them in earnest and they may yet answer. I do know that most peeps won't ever call to them, and the gods won't answer blatantly when they are not called... unless there is some special individual that catches their eye. Really,it depends on the nature of the experiment and nature of the proof... introspection and careful observation are heavily favored in these...
