Hello. I'm an Atheist, but because I am sceptical of everything I have always been sceptical of my own non-beliefs. I was recently touched by a greater power than myself, and the only way I can describe the experience is that I suddently felt overwhelmingly 'al dente'. I believe this was a sign that I have the soul and roasted parmesan crust of a Pastafarian. I hope you can all help me expand my understanding of the mysteries contained in the starchy beyond...

Sceptically,

Mikey

I have that experience all the time. It's called the Earth's gravitational pull.

Hello :haha:

Technically, that's a force. Power is a quantity that is proportional to the scalar product of the force applied to an object and the object's velocity

No, not at all...while I was in France I visited the medieval town of Conques and I was moved by the majesty of St Foy. The poor girl was persecuted by the Romans under Diocletianic. She was tied to a red hot brazier but her tears miraculously put out the flames and she could not be harmed...so they chopped her head off instead.

Bloody Romans...what did they ever do for us?

Well, yes, but then it wouldn't have been funny.

Alright, it would have been even less funny :moon:

I did think about inquiring as to the function and meaning of 'touch.' Regardless of gravity being a force or a power, does it actually touch the objects/matter it affects?

Any statistical increase in the usage of the :idiot: emoticon since becoming Admin should not be considered significant, meaningful, or otherwise cause for worry.
