Well we aren't made of stars but rather the bi-product of them. What all the hydrogen fuses into and later sods off.
User avatar #15 to #14 - djequalizee (06/19/2013) [-]
Yeah, i know. But we're still made from the same materials they run on, they start out by fusing hydrogen (A main thing we're made of) into helium. The bi-product of that is actually 2 positrons and 2 neutrinos. When the helium is all that is left the star collapses into a red giant, which creates oxygen (Main component) and Carbon (Main component as well. Larger stars also collapse into dense materials that cannot be fused such as iron, they then explode as supernovas and scatter their remains across the galaxy, some of which form planets and stars.

Perhaps I'm just an idiot, but I could never grasp how star dust could form such advance organisms.
#145 to #84 - anon (06/19/2013) [-]
Big Bang produced lots of energy and particles.

electrons combined with protons to become hydrogen atoms. hydrogen atoms then coalesced together due to the effects of gravity. once the pressure gets high enough, the temperature (which is dependent on pressure in a non-degenerate state) reaches the point where hydrogen fuses into helium through the triple alpha process.

large stars can fuse all the way to iron, after which, no more energy is released through fusion. the star collapses from the gravity, since there's no longer any outward pressure exerted from fusion, and the star undergoes photodisintegration and then explodes, creating all of the other elements on the periodic table. every element in the universe, other than hydrogen, a little bit of helium, and an even smaller amount of lithium comes DIRECTLY from star main sequence fusion and supernova element production.

we're made of the ashes of stars.

sincerely, your fellow astrophysicist anon.
#148 to #145 - anon (06/19/2013) [-]
I forgot to mention that the elements produced from a supernova end up in a planetary nebula around the white dwarf/neutron star/black hole that was created.

these elements will continue to exist around the next forming protostar in a swirling accretion disk, and will condense based on their distance from the heat source (star), and then combine into spherical blobs of similar material.
that's why the inner planets of our solar system are terrestrial, and the farther planets are gas giants, followed by ice balls.

how does life begin? well, we don't know that, yet. but we DO know how it evolves (through the processes of evolution including natural selection, speciation, genetic drift, etc. etc.). once we figure out exactly how elements and proteins form life, consciousness, and sentience, we'll be able to fully answer your question.

have a good day, and take a few science classes if you get a chance

User avatar #177 to #176 - djequalizee (06/20/2013) [-]
Hydrogen (abundant in the universe) eventually gathers in groups, it then keeps growing under pressure until it heats up and forms a star. When it heats up enough it starts hydrogen fusion which creates helium. When helium is all that is left the star collapses in on itself and starts to fuse into carbon and oxygen. Read below and above for further details.

In the first books of the Bible, it is stated that God's name has only 4 letters but no one can say it, it's unpronounceable, the word those 4 letters create. Genetic code consists of 4 letters repeated to such extent that no one can actually read it.

There are some interesting theories on how Jesus was just a literary-astrological hybrid.
Here's some examples;

The halo above his head (pictured) is a short hand version of the Zodiac calender.

Moses went ******* because they created an idol of a ram (Aries) and were worshiping it after he said he would lead them to the new age (Pisces)

Pisces is represented by two fish in the cross of the zodiac, think about that, the references to the two fish. The two fishermen, feeding the 5000 with the two fish, the Jesus/fish symbolism.

Jesus died on the cross, Jesus was the son of god, the SUN of god. At the time when he was supposedly crucified the sun was at a specific point in the sky. "And during this three day pause, the sun resides in the vicinity of the Southern Cross, or Crux, constellation."
The sun stays in that point for 3 days and then rises. (The Resurrection)

At the end of the bible Jesus tells his disciples to go into a town and meet a man bearing a pitcher of water. The man bearing the pitcher of water is the image in the zodiac cross as Aquarius.
The timing works out so when Jesus tells them to go find him, the age of Pisces is drawing to a close. The very last words spoken by Jesus were "I will be with you to the end of the world" World is mistranslated and the proper translation is "I will be with you to the end of the age".

Now I'm not saying this is definitely 100% true, but it does raise some interesting questions on what the purpose of the bible was.
#154 to #91 - anon (06/19/2013) [-]
Sound interesting, but what if the bible was written at the hand of all this. We interpreted it wrong all along and now that people come up with the (maybe) real reason, it gets tossed aside.

User avatar #163 to #154 - lolfire (06/19/2013) [-]
That's the issue though, morality =/= religion.

You don't need religion to be a good person. In fact if you need religion to be a good person then you are the worst type of person there can be.

If you need the punishment / reward system to be altruistic then you shouldn't be part of a civilized society.
#109 to #91 - anon (06/19/2013) [-]
Ok I'm going to point out some flaws in what you are saying. I will number the paragraphs to show you what is wrong. 3 When Moses came down from Sinai with the ten commandments the people did not create a golden ram it was a cow based of off the Egyptian goddess Io. 5 Jesus of Nazareth was a real person proven by the first roman census ( it is called the first census because Cyrenius was the first governor of Syria). Jesus was crucified by Pontious Pilot found by Tacitus in his annals XV 44. Also described by Tacitus is how the Sanhedrin (roman counsel) condemned the body to handed over to Joseph of Arimethia because they knew he had a tomb where no one could get in or out (especially since they had it heavily guarded by Centenarians).
If you do a little more research you will find that majority of the new testament is historically Accurate.
User avatar #113 to #109 - lolfire (06/19/2013) [-]
Let me reciprocate.
3. The idea that it was a calf came later, the original scripture translated to "male lamb"

5. There was no census of "all the world" declared by Augustus, it's not mentioned in any Roman documents that have been uncovered so far. The census was of Judea, Samaria, and Idumaea--not Galilee where Luke put Mary and Joseph. The notion that each male would have to register in the home town of a remote ancestor is unbelievable. The entire Roman world would have been turned upside-down. There would surely have been records of such widespread dislocations, and there are none. The census didn't happen.

However, I'm not doubting that there was a real person called Jesus who was a religious leader. What I'm saying is that the symbolism behind his words and actions is not supposed to be taken literally.

Humans, consists entierly, of dead matherial. If you take "all the parts" appart, you end up with alot of Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen and everything nice (seriusly thou). Commonly found (on our planet) substances that makes you. Even as you read this, it's natrium iones reacting to the indifference in balance of natrium iones inside the cell. When this is "outbalanced" it sets of an electrical charge that starts a chain reaction inside your brain - Which consists mostly of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. So to think, you need alot of Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen and Natrium (amongst other elements, which are all lifeless). YOU ARE JUST THE REACTION BETWEEN DIFFERENT METALS AND GASSES
