Is that the only possible explanation?

I'll take presupposition for a True Daily Double, Alex.

Wrong. The Earth is an oblate spheroid, and that is the overwhelming consensus.

You'll have noticed that an oblate spheroid is not a sphere. Look it up.

I've been trying to tell him that but he never listens. I don't think he's capable of even realizing when he's wrong let alone admitting it.

I would suppose it's hard to hear, or see, with your head crammed that far up your ass.

Hugh Everett's many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics would explain our observations of effects that do not have local causes. However I find God to be more plausible than the idea that reality is continuously branching off into sub realities.

I know it is not a perfect sphere. It is just easier to say it is a sphere. You are being a nit here and not advancing a counter argument.

Anjele, I forgive you for saying I have my head up my ass. If you are going to participate in these threads, at least add some content instead of just spamming your troll posts.

But really, you should try silence, I bet it would do wonders for your reputation. Drinking Beverage

I'm sure you would do that to try to save face but it won't work. Your claim was flat out WRONG! Bell's theorem is largely not in dispute......just like the earth being a sphere is largely not dispute.

The Earth is not a sphere.

And it is the interpretation and implications of Bell's Theorem that are in dispute.

You are a fucking ignoramus.

Quote:I forgive you for calling am a retarded little bitch. If you are going to engage in discussions like this, you should work on gaining the intellectual equipment and psychological maturity necessary to engage in conversations with rationale adults.

You should gain the knowledge, reading comprehension, and critical thinking skills to sit at the adults' table.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Yes, because it fits your preconceived notions. As I said, presupposition.

It's nice that you have these just-so feelings. Great. Have a cookie. But if you want to convince anyone else that your beliefs merit consideration, you'll need to show why.

In a discussion where you're pointing to theorems and what-not, a slinky equivocation to a colloquialism is dishonest. Maintain the same standards throughout.

And what I was doing there was demonstrating your distaste for admitting error. Thanks for obliging.

This is an atheist website. You are the troll here mate.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

He's just butthurt 'cos he is clearly seen for what he is. So he attempts to pretend that he's been wronged. He's maybe managed to convince one person - himself. Maybe.
