I know. I read that first time and thought it said "Scientists fix date for Extinction."   
But it's okay, Keep Calm and Praise the Sun.

Bacteria turning Ion into Gold?
Perhaps Iron?
Also, Transmutation spell.

just Ions. I bet they just found bacteria who reduce Au+ to Au.. whats the **** about dinosaurs btw?

The only way atoms can change is through nuclear fission, nuclear fusion, or a supernova

This isn't true. They can change for the better after having life changing experiences, or epiphanies.

How can there be a largest prime number? That defeats the whole concept of infinity.
User avatar #98 to #96 - Flammenwerfer (02/13/2013) [-]
Or maybe not... **** you OP I didn't want to think anymore today
User avatar #174 to #96 - anonomoz (02/13/2013) [-]
largest ever, so far
User avatar #104 to #96 - spamalope (02/13/2013) [-]
The largest KNOWN prime number

billions of earth like planets?
I could see a couple being found but billions?
User avatar #110 to #72 - misticalz (02/13/2013) [-]
There are billions of red dwarf stars. Much like our sun. Some of them are even older than ours. Could you imagine how many Earth like planets there could be? A lot.
#123 to #110 - runsliketurtle (02/13/2013) [-]
I realize how big the universe is, its infinite. but it says billions are near us which i find hard to believe
User avatar #135 to #123 - misticalz (02/13/2013) [-]
Near us, think universe size. 50 Lightyears away is pretty close.
#138 to #135 - runsliketurtle (02/13/2013) [-]
the universe may be huge but a billion is a big number, but what do i know im just a stoned teenager arguing with people on the internet
User avatar #116 to #72 - lyricalxxxxanarchy (02/13/2013) [-]
you dont seem to grasp the pure size of the universe my friend

Well that's easy, you just take your ions Au3+ and add 3 electrons, you have now turned ion into gold!

Nice broscience. You end up with Au

I cant help but think, that there is a team of scientists out there, probably more than just one, dedicated PURELY to factoring really big numbers and find all the prime numbers.... poor bastards
User avatar #152 to #106 - thesoulless (02/13/2013) [-]
We'll never find them all, because there are an infinite number of prime numbers.
User avatar #162 to #152 - rhiaanor (02/13/2013) [-]
but what if "infinity" isnt prime? then that means that there would not be an infinite amount of prime numbers, correct?
User avatar #168 to #162 - thesoulless (02/13/2013) [-]
Infinity is not a number, it is the idea that there is always a larger number, and as long as there are larger numbers, there will be larger prime numbers.

All to test the human brain.

And in the face of all of this overwhelming evidence, the Pope resigns.
User avatar #46 to #43 - BrotherDeath (02/13/2013) [-]
...Overwhelming evidence of what, exactly?
User avatar #47 to #46 - freesixty (02/13/2013) [-]
science making more sense than religion?
User avatar #48 to #47 - BrotherDeath (02/13/2013) [-]
I don't think the Church has ever (or at least recently) officially denied that Science makes more sense than they do; if what religion says was accompanied by evidence and fact, then the value of faith, which Christianity builds a great deal of it's religion around, would be zero.
User avatar #65 to #48 - yuukiii (02/13/2013) [-]
funny thing i learned the other day, The Vatican announced (few years ago) that other life forms are real.
also that it wont interfere with the belief of God
what do you think of that?
(just wondering not trying to "troll" or anything)
User avatar #235 to #65 - BrotherDeath (02/13/2013) [-]
Well, that sounds to me like progress, and I'm actually kinda impressed that the Church is prepared to take that kind of stand. However, it could well be a tad soon for them to say that; I'm not sure if scientists have actually found any definite extra-terrestrial life.

I can understand why many people might think that alien life would cancel out the possibility of the existence of God, but it simply wouldn't (at least from my viewpoint); it's perfectly possible for God, or some other creator of life, to have created more than one planet's worth of it.

Hope that answers your question.
User avatar #238 to #235 - yuukiii (02/13/2013) [-]
yea same here people dont have to be forced to forget their god just because something else is there.

thanks for tasking the time to answer :3
User avatar #50 to #48 - freesixty (02/13/2013) [-]
Damnit man it was a quick joke. I used some stereotypes and recent events.
User avatar #51 to #50 - BrotherDeath (02/13/2013) [-]
Ok, ok, I'll drop it ^^

I'm just kinda tired of the whole Science vs. Religion thing that goes on every time either is mentioned.
User avatar #52 to #51 - freesixty (02/13/2013) [-]
Hmm that probably sounded more harsh than I wanted it to. Your argument was fair. Just for the event lined up quite nicely this time. Sorry.
User avatar #53 to #52 - BrotherDeath (02/13/2013) [-]
It's a once-in-like-ten-years-or-something event. It was low-hanging fruit, I can't possibly blame you for trying for it.
User avatar #56 to #53 - Greatangelsfury (02/13/2013) [-]
Eve tried low-hanging fruit once. Look where that got us.
User avatar #239 to #56 - yuukiii (02/13/2013) [-]
low hanging fruit means its ripe for the taking
the most "sinful" food are the ones that are most sweet <3
User avatar #70 to #43 - stcronin (02/13/2013) [-]
But the church supports science
User avatar #101 to #94 - stcronin (02/13/2013) [-]
Then we have the Pontifical academy

"The Academy has an international membership which includes British physicist Stephen Hawking, the astronomer royal Martin Rees and Nobel laureates such as U.S. physicist Charles Hard Townes."
User avatar #97 to #94 - stcronin (02/13/2013) [-]
I like this quote a lot too,
"Methodical research in all branches of knowledge, provided it is carried out in a truly scientific manner and does not override moral laws, can never conflict with the faith, because the things of the world and the things the of the faith derive from the same God. The humble and persevering investigator of the secrets of nature is being led, as it were, by the hand of God in spite of himself, for it is God, the conserver of all things, who made them what they are"
User avatar #95 to #94 - stcronin (02/13/2013) [-]
Here is just one example, and there are hundreds more where the church supports modern science

"The Big Bang model, or theory, is now the prevailing cosmological theory of the early development of the universe and was first proposed by Belgian priest Georges Lemaitre, astronomer and professor of physics at the Catholic University of Louvain. Lemaître was a pioneer in applying Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity to cosmology. Lemaitre theorized in the 1920s that the universe began as a geometrical point which he called a "primeval atom", which exploded out and has been moving apart ever since. The idea became established theory only decades later with the discovery of cosmic background radiation by American scientists."
#127 to #95 - anon (02/13/2013) [-]
Woah, thanks for sticking up for the church :D. Also in 1996 Pope John Paul II recognised the theory of evolution during a speech at the pontifical academy is a point I like to point out during scienc/religious debates.
User avatar #130 to #127 - stcronin (02/13/2013) [-]
I am a scientist and Catholic and I get really tired of the stereotypes and assumptions people make. Atheistic egotism and narrow mindedness is growing but thankfully most of them aren't that way, and I just want to fight those misconceptions the best I can :)

That's depressing. :\

I'm a Christian, and it's really difficult being in a religion with people like that...
User avatar #230 to #229 - exarzero (02/13/2013) [-]
Not saying all are bad. But when you take a look at things...

I myself have own beliefs too, but people abuse the power they had no right to have in the first place and hurt others in the name of their chosen faith.

Sorry that people do that. I really am. :(
User avatar #234 to #230 - vissova (02/13/2013) [-]
Very true.

Lol no need to say sorry. You have nothing to apologize for. :P
User avatar #241 to #234 - exarzero (02/13/2013) [-]
Well, some in the Human race certainly have a reason to. lol Thanks.
