Much like evolution, Gravity has yet to be proven
You keep this up and Trump will shut down the Government because he doesn't believe in Gravity or Evolution. And until you agree with him, the Government will be shut down.

I'd like a Nickel for every Religionist who says 'Evolution is only a theory'. Not knowing Science does Not use 'Theory' for mere Conjecture but for a well documented set of facts.
The board is polluted with alot of these Literalists and 7-Eleven Adventists who know Zero about science.

Warning: Gravity is "Only a Theory"

by Ellery Schempp
Gravity: It's Only a Theory | NCSE

All physics textbooks should include this warning label:

“This textbook contains material on Gravity. Universal Gravity is a theory, Not a fact, regarding the natural law of attraction. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered.”​
The Universal Theory of Gravity is often taught in schools as a “fact,” when in fact it is not even a good theory.

First of all, no one has measured gravity for every atom and every star. It is simply a religious belief that it is “universal.” Secondly, school textbooks routinely make false statements. For example, “the moon goes around the earth.” If the theory of gravity were true, it would show that the sun's gravitational force on the moon is much stronger than the earth's gravitational force on the moon, so the moon would go around the sun. Anybody can look up at night and see the obvious gaps in gravity theory.

The existence of tides is often taken as a proof of gravity, but this is logically flawed. Because if the moon's “gravity” were responsible for a bulge underneath it, then how can anyone explain a high tide on the opposite side of the earth at the same time? Anyone can observe that there are 2 -- not 1 -- high tides every day. It is far more likely that tides were given us by an Intelligent Creator long ago and they have been with us ever since. In any case, two high tides falsifies gravity.
[...... Big snip........]
It is not even clear why we need a theory of gravity -- there is not a single mention in the Bible, and the patriotic founding fathers never referred to it.

Finally, the mere name “Universal Theory of Gravity” or “Theory of Universal Gravity” (the secularists like to use confusing language) has a distinctly Socialist ring to it. The core idea of “to each according to his weight, from each according to his mass” is Communist. There is no reason that gravity should apply to the just and the unjust equally, and the saved should have relief from such “universalism.” If we have Universal Gravity now, then Universal health care will be sure to follow. It is this kind of Universalism that saps a nation's moral fiber.

Overall, the Theory of Universal Gravity is just not an attractive theory. It is based on borderline evidence, has many serious gaps in what it claims to explain, is clearly wrong in important respects, and has social and moral deficiencies. If taught in the public schools, by mis-directed “educators,” it has to be balanced with alternative, more attractive theories with genuine gravamen and spiritual gravitas.​

Gravity itself is not a theory, it is obviously very real. However what forms it and how is unknown as is how gravity applies to the Universe in general if at all.

You don't know what a Scientific Theory is.
It's not the same meaning/weight of 'theory' in common usage.
A Scientific Theory is the strongest statement science can make on nature.

I suggest you look up 'scientific theory' instead of using 'theory' as it's used daily .. mere speculation. "Hey I got an idea/take on that!"

ie, Gravity and Evolution are theories and Facts.

You dont know your ass from a hole in the ground sock, Newtons theory of gravity has long been dismissed as wrong, take a look how gravity behaves around black holes..


Oh but wait look who I am talking to one of the kings of narcissist on this board.

Btw prove evolution and gravity are fucking facts.

You "Prove" your stupidity hourly.

Science doesn't deal in "Proof", only math does.
Science deals in Theories affirmed over time, which them become facts.
Most "facts" we use in daily language are not "Proved" either.

You are so G-D stupid you are undebatable.

Noblesse oblige.

If the theory of gravity is ever disproved, we will all float off into space

Gravity is a fact. The Theory of Gravity is attempt to explain how it works.

Similarly, evolution and abiogenesis are facts. The theories of each attempt to explain how they work.

What the hell are you babbling about, seriously what does this mean

"A Scientific Theory is the strongest statement science can make on nature."

I hate to break it to you but there are facts in nature, which means that science does recognize facts.

I suggest you look up more words little boy

If I throw a softball sized hunk of granite at your head from 20 feet away, and it hits your skull your head will crack and the granite will not.

That is a fact kid, now get off your moms computer

That might be true. Maybe god designed gravity to be as it is.
Are you kidding me?

God does not need gravity....he is freaking GOD
Not kidding. I can point at anything and say,'"god did it!", and i can never be wrong. (Which also means i can never be right)
Gravity is Gods gift to mankind

If he decides to take it away, we are in big trouble. We better not piss him off
