      hey man what's up? a whole year has passed since our last conversation (i missed last summer, it was more awesome than this year) and I still remember fondly of our discussion.

      it looks to be about even to me, same as on the right side

      sea level is likely even lower, big mountains there



      i did this
      :hmm ok, that's helpful compared to drawing a giant circle
    3. Shiba D. Inu
      Shiba D. Inu
      no :hurr

      you scaled the blue line to the top of mountain range, not horizon line

      plus the right side is different



      if you want to use curvature , planet radius = ~1600 pixels and attack = 246 pixels
      and I'm supposed to just believe that ? :hurr I'll do my own scaling whenever :blinditachi

      either way, this result is low-end compared to that direct scaling :lbj


      not sure about the reaction
      and why is that ? :hurr
    4. Shiba D. Inu
      Shiba D. Inu
      it's on the horizon :psyduck


      also that calc needs to be updated with a bunch of stuff


      and current result is quite low-end compared to scaling from planet curvature :maybe (which is possible, given how high up the view is, curvature becomes visible there) .. I might add that too
    5. Shiba D. Inu
      Shiba D. Inu
      i honestly have no idea what you're talking about :hurr
    6. Shiba D. Inu
      Shiba D. Inu
      you already tried to :hurr (doesn't change that you scaled something that isn't applicable to finding the timeframe)

      and why do you need me online to reply ?

      The problem with science from an Islamic context is that the Quran is meant to be poetic. This allows any semblance of scientific validity to be indisputably regarded as so, and any semblance of scientific invalidity to be regarded as metaphorical. What this creates is a system in which the Quran is immune to any and all forms of scientific criticism. For example, if I pointed out various Quranic verses that heavily imply that the Earth is flat, along with Tasfirs that support that notion, you would automatically resort to an apologist defence by seeking a metaphorical alternative interpretation.

      I disagree with many things in this essay by Hamza Tzortzis, but it's a decent foundation to understanding why scientific arguments from an Islamic point of view will always be useless in the platform of rational discourse:
      http://www.hamzatzortzis.com/essays-articles/exploring-the-quran/does-the-quran-contain-scientific-miracles-a-new-approach/

      As for treatment of humans, I'm not interested in that. Logical coherency comes first, moral objections are better suited for a different discussion.

      Ah yes, I answered my general gripes with religion but was too lazy to list all of them about Islam.

      I'm on the same boat now. Maybe present something more specific and with direction and I'll be motivated to answer.

      Welcome :maybe

      I'm definitely not up for multiple dragon ball pissing contests, barely feel like one, and that's only because it's relevant to more than just DB. I'll think about it, but I'd prefer not sticking my head between a door frame and slamming the door into my skull so to speak.

      So you're requesting a "vacation ban" of sorts?
      Fine by me.
      Just be sure to make a thread in the Konoha Courts when you wish to return.

      No. Or at least the observable universe wouldn't. Of course, it depends what you mean by "destroy", but chaos calced one definition here: http://www.narutoforums.com/blog.php?b=19279.

      lel... I've completely forgotten to check my profile messages for weeks. Jeez. Sorry!

      But to answer your question: the effects of relativity to distort distance and time can't be applied in such a way that something appears to be moving faster than the speed of light.

      There are other contexts in which an object can "appear" to move faster than light, but they don't have to do with relativity (and aren't actually moving FTL in any meaningful sense).

      So if an object appears to be moving towards us at a speed of 200c, you'd have to conclude that it is, in fact, moving at 200c.

      The 276 (city level+) megatons are more valid. It is somewhat consistent even with Cable's city sized calc he made.

      And it's an awesome upgrade at this point.

      The high top tiers have massively hypersonic+ (triple digit level) reactions/attacked speed and some of them movement as well.

      It's hard to judge those 2 beasts. But i would say their reactions should be around that level. They are supposed to be high level creatures of the series.

      I dunno. I guess I was always pretty fond of palindromes, and Tacocat was a fun meme several years back. But plain Tacocat was taken on YouTube, so I added Super 'cause the Super family in DC are some of my favorite characters.

      I'm not in the mood right now to list them all one by one just for your curiosity.

      Maybe tomorrow.

      The problem I have with religion on a general scale is that doesn't pass the logical test when put under a critical lens. That doesn't mean it's proven wrong, in many cases it can't be, but an intellectually honest person can't examine the evidence available and conclude that religious beliefs are a rationally valid observation of reality. Not unless they are mentally ill.

      As for Islam specifically, there are quite a lot. Do you want a list?

      1. I never once said that you can't convert to another faith (or lack thereof). As you can see, I am one of those people that had been born into a different background and converted out of it. However, for the hundredth time, this doesn't mean where you are born and how you are brought up isn't by far the most important factor to your beliefs. Not the only factor, the most important one. This is a fact that you refuse to accept, hence it's like arguing with someone that denies that the sky is blue.

      2. You are trying to re-write the English language. A good heart is characterized by one's benevolence. If you remove this association, the term succumbs to its literal form, where it simply means a functional organ. It's like saying "tongue-in-cheek" doesn't mean something that shouldn't be taken seriously, it means your ability to exercise. You're just making up your own definition that has no literal implications with the phrase at hand.

      So overall, you have me ARGUING basic demographics and sociology, as well as the English language. Just stop, it's embarrassing to watch.

      No, there is no point in continuing. You aren't prepared for a logically consistent exchange, so you're just wasting my time.

      The sad part is I was expecting much better arguments from you, as I had to wrestle with these facts before. But instead I found myself arguing with the equivalent of the sky not being blue. Disgraceful.

      I just woke up, so let me think about it for a bit, because processing that at the moment requires more energy than I feel like exerting.

      Granted, its been a few days, but I haven't bothered to check the site in a few days.

      Well , I've been on the point of good heart/soul from the beginning .... You just thought that i meant benevolence

      + This isn't the English definition , This is the Quran's definition ...

      If you're straying off from the English interpretation of "good-hearted", then using the term is pointless. In that case one's "heart" is simply an organ of the circulatory system, and your capacity to "understand and accept" Islam is relative to your brain's functions, not your heart.

      As for the last part , Yep , Except that this isn't done in a small scale such as someone's son/wife , It's pretty much done by millions of people during their lifetime (Who were raised in such enviroments as you say) (+ I didn't say people converting to Islam are FULLY good hearted , Just that they have good/faith/believing in them)

      And? Millions of people are Christian converts too. There are people who convert to Buddhism, Hinduism and Judaism as well. Islam and Christianity are the most politically successful, and hence have the most members. Proportionally, however, it's not that many. 2 Million current Muslim converts for instance is a little over 1 in every 1000 Muslims.

      There are in excess of 5+ billion non-Muslims in the world. Even if there were 5 million Muslim converts today, that would be less than 1 in every 1000 non-Muslims falling in the category of having "good hearts" according to you.
