I left a comment to JCCroom on Nidan’s site disagreeing with the notion that the universe is incredibly ordered and that this is proof of a creator and I gave examples of disorder in cosmology, planetary and asteroid impacts, colliding galaxies etc. He asked that I substantiate these claims with evidence, so I gave links to pictures and examples. JCCroom then responded by insulting me over and over and over again, and defended himself by saying that I had insulted him first. When asked to cite where I insulted him, he cited these two examples as blatantly offensive.
“The moon is believed to be the result of a large impact with the early molten earth largely because computer simulations of such an impact show that this is possible with our current laws of physics and the fact that the moon is gradually receding from the earth according to laser measurements of it’s orbit and several billion years ago it would’ve been about half the distance it currently is from the planet – this and the fact that in computer simulations the moon is always tidally locked with the earth, or in other words like the moon it is always revolving once around the earth for every time it spins so from the earth we would only ever see the same side of it. This is strong evidence in support of the early-earth impact theory of the origin of the moon. But I didn’t state this as a fact, just gave it as an example.”
“Image, image. Both are actual photographs from the hubble of galaxies colliding, the second is taken with a much more powerful lense and is the largest, clearest picture of the phenomenon ever taken. The core of each galaxy is the bright white part (more stars).”
To quote him, this is why they were offensive:
“You went to great length to explain out to me the fact that the moon is tidally locked, and in the most condescending way you could put it. Every three year old knows that. And then my personal favorite: you pointed out to me that the center of galaxies are brighter because they have more stars in them. As my biological father would say, “No shit, Sherlock! Where’d you park the squad car? ”
So I ask you, was I condescending or rude in any way, shape or form? Or is he off his rocker?
