What do you mean you're 14 "of course you know"? You shouldn't know that until your at least... I dunno. 32?

I would really like to know why people think the Bible cannot be substantiated. Aside from the spiritual aspect (which I can understand is hard to believe - been there), what of the scientific and historical value?

I would give you my address but then the post office would hunt me down and eat me for contacting you, considering the fact that you don't exist.

Hijack threads much, twopointseventwo? Just kidding.  ;)

Roundy, you seem to be missing the point. Granted, I'm arguing against something that is the cornerstone of FE belief so I really don't expect to get anywhere. I'm just trying to figure out how to rationalize a conspiracy of this magnitude?

That's the problem though, it IS the only way it can be.

Let me break it down simply for you...

Take the amount of people who work either for NASA or some other space, or geological, or atmosphearic industries (oh, and throw in electrical enginers and GPS companies just for fun). Now, subtract the amount of people just in those areas that are involved in the conspiracy.

I don't know how many people work in those combined areas but I'm going to guess the number is pretty high. Significactly high in fact, even after removing the people who are keeping FE a secret. Just that fact alone makes it a mathmatic improbability, combined with chaos theory it becomes impossible.

I'll break it down into small scale now:

3 people cannot keep a large secret from each other - i.e. married man has an affair, wife WILL (for the most part) find out (it's only a matter of time), usually due to a silly mistake from the husband.

That's 2 people trying to keep one secret from one person, very difficult to do.

Try this, one person cannot keep a secret from many people. I'll explain:

Murder. Do I need to spell this out? Two people know something, one is killed by the other, people investigate, eventually the murderer gets caught. He can't hide all of the evidence of the crime all of the time from all of the experts.

Take those examples and expand them to include the industries I described before, now apply the same rules but make all of the people smarter and harder working. Their job usually consists of defining, refining, explaining, discovering and other '-ings' that scientists and enginers do. They are TRYING to find out secrets.

Even a few people cannot hide a secret this large from many people who are trained to think outside of the box.

Unlikely is an understatement. Even without going into the law of parsimony, it is quite obvious that even if a few like minded people could be found to keep this secret, they could not keep it for long. Bounded Chaos Theory would reign surpreme, there simply is no way to resolve that.

(Sorry, I would post more in depth but I'm at work and just had a server go down. It's screwing up my 99.8% uptime average!!)

Totally impossible to achieve.

People are smarter than you give them credit for. How come nobody who has ever worked for NASA woke up one day and said "I wonder why *insert FE propoganda*". Your entire argument centers on the hope that somebody won't ever be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Do you honestly believe that such a large group of some of the brightest minds on this planet wouldn't figure this out?

Certainly logical, except for the fact that it is entirely unproveable and impossible to achieve.

I'll save you some time:

Money NOT spent on going into space = money spent elsewhere. Also, it can't be proven.

Actually, as far as I am aware, I just haven't died yet.

I think we're forgetting one universal truth here - everything dies.

Sadly, Heaven, Hell or some other plane can't be proven at all based on our normal senses (unless you're Constantine). The simple fact is that Western religion relies on the Bible to give us a reason to have faith in an afterlife. With that in mind, the only way to 'prove' heaven or hell is to look to the Bible. Of course that is automatically discounted, for no good reason.

You want proof there is a President, I'll tell you to look in the White House. Want proof of heaven or hell, I'll point you to the Bible.

Don't let Tom do it. Next thing you know he'll tell us NASA doesn't exist. It's a pyramid scheme conspiracy!

Also, we already know the post office is in on the conspiracy. Gayer's got proof.

The Office makes me feel like I'm at work. I can't stand coming home from a long day of work, to sit down and watch work.

Makes no sense to me.
