Wow this was really good, and extremely well thought out.

Now if you can somehow find out 'HOW' they bend the element. Than we can have scientists work on tempering with our DNA to have the trait that will allow us to bend the elements, and then everyone can become a bender!

isnt there a lot of hydrogen in the air? if firebenders can control hydrogen they can use that as fuel can't they?

unless air bending is actually nitrogen
water is hydrogen
fire is combustion and oxygen
and earth is carbon

Then earthbenders could bend living creatures.

well, carbon was a weak example, it's late hear, but the point remains, the bendings can be easily separated

My thoughts exactly.

My thought is

air: nitrogen
water: H2O (don't forget, if we're going to the scientific about this, it's ******* hard to manipulate small or unstable molecules. H2O is extremely stable).
earth: need to think about this more. Carbon is a bad example, anything living is made of carbon... People bending?
fire: Super heating air. Fire is just rapid oxidation and oxidation happens errwhere. super heating causes oxidation to happen faster

You have a good point, that would explain why only the avatar could learn all four types of bending.

meh 5/10 at least your trying , but the truth is bending is about the ability to use certain chakras to control the elements

this = science
chakra = does not actually exist

Avatar= does not actually exist
people can dodge lightning with relative ease = Physics not of our world
Chakra= belived by some and not by others

Avatar = does not actually exist
people that can dodge lightining = physics of our world, but near impossible
chakra = does not exist. simple as that. how is this even debatable?

"people that can dodge lightining = physics of our world, but near impossible "

people can dodge lightning with relative ease =/=physics of our world, but near impossible

In conclusion Physics not of our world

Chakra very well could exist and we could be ignorant to it's presence. Chakra is spiritual science is the opposite so it stands to reason we will never discover it through science.

Science is science we will never discover spiritual entity through it. it's the equivalent of having a church for atheism

science can't discover "spiritual entity" because it doesn't exist.

atheism doesn't need a church because it's not a separate belief. its a common misconception that atheism is a united belief in no god. Rather, atheism is a lack in belief altogether. theres no point in a church because they dont need, want, or believe in the need of churches.

please, stop mixing your 'spirit' with my science.

You sir are the highest tier of idiot Id even go out of my way to say full blown retard.

Only a fool would say that. Is there a possibility? Absa ******* lutely . Is it likely ? not at all, but could it exist why yes it could. However one will not know of spirits until we are dead.

My point exactly Spiritual beliefs are like atheism in that they are completely separate from science as atheism is from religion.

"please, stop mixing your 'spirit' with my science." = my favorite part of this conversation. even an idiot knows you're being a hypocrite. I applied my "spirit" to your science becuase you used science on something that is spiritually based, but i guess from the opposite end of the spectrum it's not so much fun. bending is achieved from channeling your spirit and using your chakra. There is a different chakra for every bending style , and only the avatar can unlock them all. Hence he can use all four styles of bending. Science has nothing to do with it.

I'm the idiot? I'm not even sure you understand what science REALLY is by this point...

yes, I am using science to explain something spiritually based, but that is the purpose of science you bumbling idiot. To disperse misconceptions, or in this case provide an alternative, to the spirit explanation, which is ultimately a cop-out; anybody can say "this happens because spirits said so!" it is something else to provide a scientific analysis of what might actually be happening. You say "from the opposite end of the spectrum it's not so much fun," but how does that even make sense when put into context? Alright, I'll follow your logic and do this backwards:
Everything in the universe is made of atoms. However, if we look very not closely at this, we can in fact see that everything is a creation of spirit magic! using our well planned imaginations, we have made make-belief names for the different aspects of existence.
very scientific of you, indeed. it has everything to do with science when it's a** science post** you ******* idiot.

Your a moron you really are.
I was simply saying I did what you did yet your telling me not to do it. I was further cementing how your a hypocrite. You want reasons? It's not a ******* cop out its whats there and that's all that's there.
Also everything in the universe isn't made of atoms everything in the universe is made from neutrons protons and electrons ... actually we can go further then that and say it is really quarks and electrons that make up everything in the universe.

Your last sentence made absolute no sense and it hurts trying to decipher it.

Also if you don't know where Fire benders get their fuel You sir are a moron. Why? becuase it has been explained multiple times through out the series.

okay, first things first: none of your first paragraph made any sense, the entirety was incoherent babbling of a butthurt dumbfag who lost an argument and can't cope with disagreements outside his sheltered bubble-life where he can always tell himself he's right, simply "because." I suppose the spirit people gifted you with your infallible wisdom?

I don't know what's not clear about that sentence... I'm basically adressing when you said "Science has nothing to do with it." My point was that science has EVERYTHING to do with it, because I'm talking in science terms, not lay mans terms or religious terms as you seem to prefer.

How does not knowing where they get their fuel make me a moron? Scientifically, there's nothing they could potentially manipulate to spontaneously combust the area directly above their palm. I haven't looked much into it, because I planned that explanation for Part II, but if you're so smart why don't you tell me? Please cite your source, I don't recall where or when they could've mentioned the Firebender's fuel source. Just one example would be fine, pretty please_ oh great wise one_ !

Your seriously an idiot. I was saying how you responded to what you quoted wrong. You misinterpreted what i said. YOU applied science to spirits I applied spirits to your science. So I am on the opposite side of the spectrum

Ah I see. Th way you worded made it hard to comprehend and read. You cant apply science to spirits it's just that simple you keep trying to , but it wont work.

"Scientifically, there's nothing they could potentially manipulate to spontaneously combust the area directly above their palm." - Exactly
Fire benders use their own body heat as fuel. Which in every aspect is physically impossible.

I understood what you said perfectly right... I think you're the one misinterpreting ME. I decided to look at things from your perspective, and work backwards to apply spirits to science (a futile effort, which leads only to further convolution of human understanding and digression of human knowledge). I showed you what this post would look like if I was interpreting something scientific from your perspective, the spiritual perspective.

...I don't even know how to respond to this. It is so utterly nonsensical. Are you trying to say you cannot apply science to supposed 'spirit knowledge'?

I'm pretty sure by this point you haven't even read my ******* content. Heat isn't a fuel. Look at the damn triangle, I'm not even making you read. The heat is accounted for, and the oxygen is accounted for. And if you're saying it's physically impossible, how in the bloody hell am I a moron for not thinking of a clever fuel source when it has supposedly been said countless times in the series, although you failed to cite a single source actually relating to fuel or any mention of it.

I'm sorry, but your logic is lacking in every regard...
