isn't gravity the mere result of a magnetic field? the whole milky way is one giant magnetic field (see the higgs boson).

It turns out, this guy doesn't even believe that crap he said about gravity, he was using it to make a point about the existence of God. He was trying to say that God is like gravity, doesn't have a physical existence but you can know it exists from its effects. I didn't think it was a good analogy, because knowing a force exists is a simpler thing than knowing a specific version of God exists that you can say very particular things about. I guess I have to give him a little credit for thinking that up, even though I don't think it was as good of a point as he thinks it is. But, he's still an idiot anyway. :lol: I totally wasn't trying to get into an argument with him about that, I was just trying to use gravity as an example of scientific knowledge that has changed, since he keeps going on about how "science doesn't change" and it makes me wanna smack him upside the head or something.

I wasn't even going to bring up what the argument was originally about, but I already said a little bit of it, so I might as well now, I guess. Remember I was talking about how he was saying, as I put it, "X people who are Y" are a myth? "X people" are same-sex couples, and "Y" is monogamous. So he's saying monogamous gay couples are a "myth". He's one of those "fundies" I was talking about before. Total Christian conservative homophobic type.

Also, I want to share this little "gem" he just gave me, as his "proof" that "homosexuals destroy society": (and this is just copy-and-pasted, he always types like that)

Take a number of homosexuals, both sexes, put the males on one island, put the females on another island ........give them anything they want or desire ..... deprive them of nothing ..... but they cannot leave and they cannot have the opposite sex ...... come back in 60 years ...... nothing will be left ........ society DIES ..........

Are you accusing me of doing that? If so, that is funny, or even if you're talking about someone else, it's still funny... since that's one common thread among the particular group that I often have these arguments like this with. The site that all this takes place on has a habit of banning people for various (inconsistently applied) reasons, but it's easy enough to come back under a different name.... but the thing is, a few of the people there are apparently convinced that me and maybe about 4 others who have similar views are all the same guy, operating under different usernames simultaneously. I think maybe they just don't want to think that that many people disagree with them.
