    I’m not sure how accurate that is, there would certainly be time dilation which could make it feel that way

    Of course, nobody has ever gotten close to one, if we could send a probe to the closest black hole to us, it would probably arrive long after our sun goes extinct and we’re more ancient history than the beginnings of the universe

    I think the singularity is pretty much theoretical because one hasn't been observed but it is scientists that think it probably exists.

    True. Our knowledge of the universe is severely limited by our very low level of technology. Until we can actually get out and study things directly it’s very difficult to get concrete information or theories - we’ve come a long way though, if we survive the current political mess, and find a way to stop fighting for long enough, it’s feasible we’ll get much closer over the coming years.

    There is an outlying theory that says that advance civilization as a whole existed before and was wiped out. Advance civilization is up again. I hope it doesn't happen again, lol. :rofl:

    Based on current trends that seems the most likely scenario

    As a Sikh I know nothing about Christians except you people like to dance around a Christmas tree and worship the Easter Bunny. I would need a tutor. So I'd hire @The Reverend to help me

    That's why the original post says "in-depth questions", not just any questions with certain degrees of ambiguity.

    If you google “The Skeptic’s Annotated Bible” they have an excellent resource - the entire bible is there, as well as Quran and Book of Moron

    It’s something worth investigation long enough to read why it’s all a load of shit.

    Find a verse someone quotes, and it’ll give you a nice list of all the places where it contradicts that verse to varying degrees, using nothing but the words in the book itself. It’s easy and hilarious (and 100% verifiable too!)

    I grew up in a church. I'm baptized and confirmed, hell, I even taught Sunday school for CALM hours in high school.
    I have enough knowledge and insight into the bible to know its a load of shit.

    The bible is nothing more than a tool used to gain control of a group of peoples. Power in numbers. Amiright?
