    There is a down when you consider the poles of the planet.  South pole is down, North is up.  Stop playing silly diversionary tactics in a vain effort to come off as more intelligent and your make your opponent look like an idiot.  Cause I KNOW you’ve said you were cold before and since cold does not exist, only varying levels of heat, you must not know anything about physics then, right?  Okay, so stop the trivial crap and argue the arguements at hand or conceed defeat on the topics and move on to the next topic.


  • There is a down when you consider the poles of the planet.  South pole is down, North is up.

    That is arbitrary. North is no more up then south, except that that is the standard way in which it is seen. A map of the world depicts the North Pole at the top, and the South Pole at the bottom. But one could draw a map with south oriented so as to be on top, and be just as correct.

    what arguments at hand? that you claim the Bible as proof of God? that you use the “bible as metaphor” argument, when before you have interpreted it literally when it served your purposes to do so? you haven’t presented any argument that is worth refuting, so I chose instead to point out the flaws.


  • Well actually, the poles are not up or down either, they are tilted 23 1/2 degrees to the solar plane.

    And that is slightly tilted to the galactic plane

    And our galaxy is all kinds of various tilts compared to other galaxies

    UP is AWAY from the planet and out of the gravity well.


  • Also one needs to look at a map from Australia, or simply spend time in the southern hemisphere to realize how Ameri-centric this viewpoint of the world is. 
    Not surprising, considering the source.


  • Can;t blame it all on the Americans on that one… we just held on to the pre-existing prejudices of England, and some from Germany and a few other places in Europe.

    I mean, the Prime Meridian is defined as passing from pole to pole in a straight line through the observatory in Greenwich England.  Now THAT is cultural imperialism to force every nation to determine their place in the world by how far they are away from an observatory in your nation 😄

    @Jennifer:

    God pitched a tent

    That is the coolest thing I’ve heard in a while.  That almost makes me feel like going to church… no it’s gone…
