How are you defining those terms?

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.

Pro-tip:
I think that when you give your opinions it would behoove you to say it is an opinion, a personal insight or belief instead of making declarations of fact. In this way your mumblings are a bit more palatable and less subject to ridicule than when you make face-palming statements like the one above.

Or maybe not. You do say some truly stupid things. Consider

We interpret different wavelengths of visible light as different colors. When there is a mix across various wavelengths we interpret it as white and that does contain the other colors in a way. We can just no longer identify them separately without instruments.

When an object absorbs some wavelengths and reflects others we see the reflected wavelengths as the color of the object but the absorbed wavelengths are gone. I find it misleading to say that black contains all colors since the wavelengths for those colors have been absorbed and no longer exist except maybe as heat. Black isn't all colors; it is the absence of color.

Really? If you think that is the case. This and many other posts of this nature may show that you have some trouble with abstract thought. At least grasping the abstract notions in English and how they compare to similar situations.

It keeps showing up like you have struggles accepting or grasping ideas outside of a 2-pronged dichotomy.

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.
Same thing. Pretty much.

RE: Why do theists come to this forum?
Pops.... okay, look. It just seems like you're some kind of an attention whore. You always get wrapped up in these lengthy conversations that extend through pages and pages of posts while you desperately attempt to defend your point of view. Apparently, the topic can be about anything, as I've clearly seen in this thread.

The locals don't agree with anything you've got to say. -Why are you trying to convince them about your views of colors and light waves? Okay, so I can understand why you'd want to talk to them about Jesus, but .... colors? Really? Why?!

You just like arguing. Doesn't matter the topic. You just want to duke it out with people and soak up as much attention as possible.

.... Yeah, and I'm grouped with you because I'm also a theist.
