THIS is why you are ridiculed.

Yeah it was kinda sorta cleared up earlier. I was thinking that laws where without change or possibility of change because there was no doubt whatsoever to their validity. Evidently, that isn't the case.

OK.


That is sort of true for pigments but utterly untrue for light.


Well, sure.
I didn't mean they were literally exactly the same but that both contain. The full spectrum of color

No, they don't.

No, it can't.

No, you don't.

I have stated that I can learn and that I am in no way a scientist or versed in specific terminologies so why continue being negative. I'm actually open to learn of what I don't know, but that openness is stifled by repeated negativity.

We have had so many malicious trolls here that many of us instinctively treat theists badly. I agree that it is wrong to do this as a general rule, and I try to resist the temptation (not always successfully).

I will make no apology for ridiculing the ridiculous Dodgy

Are you fucking 5 years old? Colour doesn't work that way. If you don't want to be ridiculed for being stupid, *don't be stupid*. It's simple yet you can't seem to grasp the concept.

Not necessarily.
Black can be the absence of light or the complete absorption of light, (ie non reflected).
You have no understanding of light and the spectrum.

Color does work that way. Do yourself a favor and get some paint. You don't need all colors, just the primaries are sufficient. Now take equal parts of the three and mix them. You will get black.

Now, observe a rainbow or prism. Sun light or white light refracted in a prism will give all colors.

White is a hue, and black is a shade.

They aren't technically the same but both hold hold all colors.

Except they are totally different, *pretty much*. Facepalm
