Also, the sun is low in lithium, which means it's not depressed.

"The Bible never refers to it as a star. This suggests that the sun may have some unique characteristics" - Ipso facto. Suck it, atheists.

You can't deny that our solar system is conducive to life. Name another solar system that you know supports living organisms. Just one. If you're being honest, you can't.

The question is what does it mean that we are alive and an intelligent species in this solar system that supports life? How is it that we are alive here rather than just dust existing on another planet? Can you really chalk it up to good luck? That is the question.

Um, I'm not an astronomer but hasn't he flipped this on its head?  I thought that the variability in the brightness of a star was the way we detected the planets in the first place.  Planet passes in front, star appears to dim.  Appears.  Not actually becoming dim.

Or am I spending waaaay more time thinking about his post than he did...

The bananas that grow on other planets don't fit our hands. We know this because the Bible doesn't mention bananas that fit in people's hands growing on other planets. What more proof do you people require?

While the sun has many characteristics similar to stars, the Bible never refers to it as a star. This suggests that the sun may have some unique characteristics. Could that refer to its composition? The sun's composition is a bit unusual - it has far less lithium than most stars do. Lithium isn't very common in stars anyway, but the sun is among the most lithium-poor stars. Though this statistic is interesting, it isn't clear whether it is significant.

So what the fark is it? Unique, unusual, very common or not significant? They don't mean the same farking thing!

Well I guess that settles it. I wonder what else my astronomy professor lied to the class about.
Heliocentricism? Heretic!

Actually banana of today were "intelligently designed" but by MAN. The original bananas pre-agricultural revolution where small and had very little flesh.
 
2014-06-17 12:30:59 AM
it's fashionable today to call the sun a star

as much as Kathy Griffin is a star. Look, we like the sun, but I'm not inviting it to the party.
 
2014-06-17 12:31:09 AM
Our sun is just a tiny yellow star in a vast collection that could support life.

Actually our star is larger than average. 80% of stars in the Milky Way are small M dwarf stars. Consequently any planets orbiting them would have to be quite a bit closer than Earth is to the Sun in order to support life.

Anyway, someone introduce this chucklehead to the Drake equation.

I think you can.  We should honor that luck too.

I suppose religion is a form of honoring ones good fortune in not only being alive, but also in being sentient.

lithium is highly toxic. low levels can mean it's working too. high levels mean you need to stop taking it.

Holy shiat that was a mess.  He can't have written it since every "fact" in that train wreck is easily disproven by a simple Google search or cracking the pages of a 3rd grade science book.

Oh.  Right.  The Bible is the only book he reads.

If you were perfect in God's plan, you'd be a banana.

Well, if we were octopi creatures from Pegasus B1231 we'd probably be sitting around our volcanic vents looking up at a icy covering of the sea; warming our tentacles flashing colors to each other saying how fortunate we were are being the only intelligent beings in the universe and how lucky those vents happened to appear to give us heat and warmth and how blessed we are to have a liquid warm place to live instead of being on that frozen surface.

Then they'd probably kill virgin in the volcanic vents---just because.

Actually, he's right about that part. Most stars fluctuate in brightness and our Sun is more stable than average. He's also right that this makes it easier for life on Earth.

You are correct that we can find planets by noting when they pass in front of a star, but that's a completely different phenomenon.

I guess it's okay to create imaginary creatures to argue your scientific facts. I'm convinced!
