    I am so sick and tired of our schools teaching the religion of "Gravity" to our kids.

    Now, I understand how some people can be so deceived by the Godless ramblings of Issac Newton. Drop an apple, and it falls. That's their so-called evidence of "microgravity" only.

    But the Satanic lie doesn't stop there. Newton, in a direct slap to God's face, invented off the top of his head, this insane idea of "macrogravity!" That the same "force" that pulls the apple to the ground is somehow related to what moves the Earth around the sun! Can you believe this nonsense?

    Can they prove it? Nope! Then why push their godless gravity in our classrooms? As part of the plot to push the evil Newtonian agenda, that's why!

    Now, all of us True Christians (TM) know that this is yet another one of Satan's lies to deceive and persecute the believers. We all know that it is the hand of God that pulls the apple to the Earth. So much for Microgravity. And this fable of macrogravity is contrary to Biblical teachings, so it must be false too.

    True Christians (TM) accept Ptolemy's Biblical view of our solar system: The Earth is fixed at the center of all creation, just where God put it, and the sun, moon, and other planets are in fixed orbits around it, as part of a celstial mechanism controlled from without by the Almighty, the "prime mover."

    Holy Scripture supports this:

    Joshua said to the LORD in the presence of Israel: "O Sun, stand still over Gibeon, O moon, over the valley of Aijaion." So the sun stood still. And the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies. As it is written in the book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. --Joshua 10:12-13

    The sun had to move around the Earth for the LORD to make it stop, doesn't it? Look out your window! The sun is clearly moving around the Earth, and it does so because God, who can stop the sun, also moves it along! And yet we allow our children's minds to be poisoned by this unprovable fairy tale about "Laws" of Gravity.

    What are you going to believe, the Bible, or some myth about invisible "forces" pulling rocks together?

    I totally agree, microgravity may have been observed, but there's no evidence for macrogravity holding galaxies together, it hasn't been observed in the lab.

    Do you know nobody even knows what "gravity" is? They've never even seen it, yet they continue to indoctrinate young minds everywhere with this so-called "gravity".

    I, for one, am all for getting warning labels slapped on text books.

    Funny you brought that scripture up Nathan. That one bothered me enough to comment on it when I used to attend an actual Church service. Noone got it.

    IF the Earth TRULY stopped rotating... i.e. the Sun stood still....

    WHAT exactly kept everything on the Earth's surface from shooting off into outer space...

    I mean, a body in motion does tend to remain in motion...

    Does this mean they battled flying through Outer Space?

    Hey.. MY view of Gravity is the ONLY truth to Gravity.
    You're microgravity 'myth' is based upon Pagan, Babylonian,
    and Early Greek mythology.

    I know this because the guy next door told me so.

    Henry Drummond used that one in Inherit the Wind. Figure the Earth is about 25,000 miles around (give or take), and it makes a complete rotation in 24 hours. That gives it a rotation speed of about 1,042 MPH.

    Now, if I were in a car travelling at that speed, and we suddenly hit a brick wall and came to a dead stop...

    Of course, this is just more evidence against macrogravity. The sun must have been what stopped, because stopping the Earth would've caused worldwide catastrophe. And God clearly said He'd never do that again (after He wiped out all life on Earth with a flood.)

    Your satire reminded me of another one on the Satanic notion of gravity from another poster S2Focus in response to a creationist, Vanderzyden.

    How are we supposed to take these "experts" seriously when they cannot even reconcile quantum gravity with relativistic gravity! And what is this nonsense about matter bending space? YOu can't bend space! Space has never been bent in a lab. If gravity is real, then where is it's opposite? The opposite of light is dark, the opposite of good is evil, the opposite of positive charge is negative. So where is the anti-gravity huh. Make the apple fall up for once. Oh, and BTW an apple NEVER fell on Newton's head - he made it all up. Therefore this gravity stuff is total nonsense. ANd if you choose to beleive in this religion of massive objects attracting each other then you will pay for it for all of eternity!!!

    not to mention the complete failure of anyone to reproduce a galaxy or even a solar system in a laboratory to prove the workings of gravity...

    Yes! I agree completely! We MUST fight against the teaching of the state-sponsored religion of gravity in our schools! :D

    If gravity were true the planets would fall into the sun, not go around it. Isnt gravity all supposed to be about stuff falling down?

    Finally, a sounding board against the heretics of mainstream scientific "theories".

    The Dark Sucker Theory

    "Every year, bright and eager young physics students are being misled by "scientific" dogma conspirators who claim that light, not darkness, is the stuff that moves through the universe carrying energy. This page is dedicated to those hardy, brave souls who know the deeper truth and aren't ashamed to admit it: that so-called "light sources" are really dark suckers, that "light" is nothing more than the absence of darkness, and that it is darkness, not light, which is the fundamental radiative transport mechanism of the universe. "

    I AGREE WITH THIS TEACHING ENTIRELY... LC said it.. therefore it must be true. Since gravity can only be experimentally demonstrated by throwing stuff up into the air and noting their return to Earth, Gravity MUST be only about stuff falling down.

    And this nonsense of 'black holes'... I'm tired of such nonsense distorting the morals of our children's minds.

    And this notion of distorting time by manipulating gravity. Everyone knows gravity can't change...

    Silly Scientists.....

    The second law of thermodynamics mans systems should tend towards disorder, but do I see this in 'gravity'? NO! The solar system is a stable system, if thermodynamics were right then it should collapse into disorder not orbit in stability!

    The Gravitists should open their eyes to the truth of Gods one and only true word, and accept the plain teaching of scripture! Just because reality denies it doesn't mean its not true.

    Don't forget about that fiend Einstein. His spatial and temporal relativism extending Newton's heresies have corrupted virtually every college and university in the world. Any true Christian knows that time is only different for God (1000 years like a day and all that). He blasphemously claims that humans can be like God and alter the speed of time.

    It is time to give this thread a big bump. And in order to do so, I submit this little text written by Gail Davis back in 1996:

    Godless Linguistics

    Clearly, we can see the very structure of our civilization crumbling around our ears. Sexual perversion runs rampant as our once-proud moral culture slides ever closer to the gaping maw of oblivion. One need only turn on the TV to witness ample evidence of the degradation of our current Godless society, slipping closer to destruction with the wanton disregard for proper diction, and the torrid abomination of corrupted grammar!

    Why, just listen to the "music" of the young people these days. Such trash! The words slur together (when they can be understood at all) into a putrid mush of incomplete sentences and split infinitives. It's awful. And it has been PROVEN to induce young people to commit acts of violence, theft, and unwed pregnancy. And surely, it is no mere coincidence that this dire threat to the fabric of our very civilization coincides exactly with the indoctrination of our young people with Godless LINGUISTICS in the public schools.

    Our public schools have turned away from the source of Truth, to teach our children that our sacred English language has descended from other languages. The poor impressionable youngsters are taught AS A FACT that English words have certain "root words", even though this is only a theory. The FACT is, God Almighty created all languages complete when he confused mankind's original language as punishment for our transgression at the tower of Babel. But the athiest/lingusts don't want this mentioned in public settings, because it goes against their FAITH, and forces them to face their own accountability. So they have BANNED the teaching of Babelism, because they are afraid that it might expose the weakness of their own linguistic ideas. Is this fair? I don't think so. It goes against all that America stands for.

    Therefore, join me in the campaign to have a balanced and fair treatment in public education. All english teachers should be required to include Babelism as a valid alternate theory to Linguisticism, whenever the origins of the English language is discussed.

    Oh, of course we can expect opposition from the entrenched vested interests. They will point to certain similarities (i.e. "mother", "madre" "mater") as evidence of the relatedness of various languages. But this is a complete misinterpretation of the evidence. Clearly it is more economical for God to use similar phonic structures to designate similar meanings. Therefore, the existence of such similarities PROOVES that the various languages must have had the same author.

    Second, a language is a complex thing. The odds that some first speaker could randomly string together a complex series of sounds, and then multiply this by the odds that someone else would UNDERSTAND him, and the probablity could be calculated to be less than 1 in 10^500. That's a one with five hundred zero's. A statistical impossibility. Obviously, the first language must have a designer: God.

    Third, there is NO evidence that transitional languages ever existed. What use is half a language? A noun without verbs conveys no meaning! Sure, there is middle and old-English. But these are ENGLISH! A complete nontransitional language. We do not deny that micro-lingustics can happen, but this process can create only DIALECTS. There is NO EVIDENCE that a series of random micro-lingustic events can create a WHOLE NEW LANGUAGE. I'll beleive in Macro-linguistics when I see a video tape of a child growing up in an Eskimo village suddenly become fluent in Armenian! It takes A LOT MORE FAITH to beleive in athieistic linguisticism than the truth of
    Babelism.

    So join me in the crusade: Babelism must be included in the public school English curriculum.

    There are only two theories which explain the origin of our language: Babelism and Linguisticism. Shouldn't they BOTH be given a fair hearing?

    Thank you.

    That was brilliant. A wonderful parody of the parts of creationism that micro/macrogravity hasn't dealt with.

    Wonderful.:clap: :clap: :clap:
