Here is how to do it: Find a very tall building, and jump off it.
Maybe, because it's a ... what was that? Man made story? Maybe because its a man made story, you will simply fly around. Then again, you may splatter all over the floor.
In either case, it's a win for science if you manage to prove or disprove the man made story called the theory of gravitation.
Remember, find tall building, jump off, disprove man made story. Go on... I dare ya.

Unless you really do not have the capacity to understand the concept we are discussing, ... just wanted you "smart science" folks to tell us sky guy peeps just how this all came about, the fairly ordered universe, you know the atheists "stories" of just being ...they are truly wild and fascinating, but if it is so silly to believe in a god, just where are your solid answers to where gravity, all the rules of physics, come from originally? Come on ....
I can hear the gears whizzing now...."oh, wait a minute, omg, he is not asking IF there is gravity...he is asking WHERE IT CAME FROM ORIGINALLY, BEFORE BEFORE, matter of fact he is asking where did everything come from, originally?" Totally nothing, not even the thought or whisper or anything of even this nothingness existed [ and if that's not true, where did whatever IS there, where did that come from?] and this nothingness suddenly for some reason just sprang into just being somethingness, matter of fact everythingess, now just where did that all come from then? This decision from nowhere and then the power to actually do...where did it come from? I know, I know this is a bit more mature subject than maybe you are used to ...seeing as how you earlier tried to dumb the question down to something you maybe could actually answer, and then you there was that clumsy/snarky little attempted jibe, ha ha ha, crude but at least made me chuckle about just how much effort you folks expend on the extraneous hoping we will forget about the pertinent...but you see this ploy you are using to avoid ...it just is simply not about the question asked...and so you maybe might try again?
If not, I understand...
hmmmm...what to do what to do,huh? Like I said, maybe y'all wanna call Bill Nye, the science guy...maybe he might help you locate the answer...ha ha ha ha
If you can tell me why having that opinion makes me a terrible libertarian, by all means, do it. I think you just can't form a rebuttal, so you're switching to insults instead.
First off, take off the caps lock because I can hear you fine. Second, the facts are that Christians are called to be repentant. If one claims to be a follower of Christ, then their life will show evidence of it. If one claims to be a follower of Christ and leads a life of willful rebellion to his teaching, then I'll let you do the logic, and before you try to separate Christ's teaching from that of his Apostles, Jesus himself gave his Apostles authority to speak and teach on his behalf, so no it has not been amended by a higher authority.
Whether or not the BSA accepts gays is irrelevant. However, if the BSA is using the facility of a group that believes homosexuality is wrong to teach that it is an acceptable behavior, that is another matter entirely, and your condemnation of the claimed bigotry of this pastor becomes as laughable as it is hypocritical.
FWIW, it strikes me as odd that you pick and choose the teachings of Christ to try to catch someone in a contradiction when you yourselves have precious little knowledge of scripture and what knowledge you do have, you twist and turn for your own sordid means.

You see, your faith is science, but it is only your faith versus mine. There is, simply put, no superiority of science as science has proven here, to us all, that it is just a belief system not substantially different really from the rest in this regard. All of each belief system rests, for whatever fundamental understanding it has about what all this around us "is" and "where it came from", all rests on an unprovable first premise, so everything from there is not really much more than pure extrapolation, some judging reality, perhaps, hard to really know, better than others. Agreed.
Main thing to say is, you can no more prove yours right than you can prove ours wrong... sweet and simple.
would suggest taking your animal-preferencing to a zoo maybe...?
