There are only two spherical positive and negative electromagnetic waves +1 and -1 represents the inward absorption and outward emission of electromagnetic waves.. .  .And 0 represents the moment of now for each photon electron coupling, or dipole moment!! There exists only two combinations of these Two Spherical Sine Wavefronts multiplying inward +1=0 now -1 dividing outward at right angles from their sources.. .  .They have opposite vectors and quantum spin forming the positron +1=0 now -1 electron Wave Centre.. .  .See: Spherical Electron Sixty Symbols.. .  .

+Prince Vegeta I wish there were more group studies with other Christians and even of different worldview adherents. There would be less confusion amongst different people.

didn't hear the word "theory" or "we think" mentioned even once.  It may have unfolded this way, but we don't know.  It's a guess.  That should be made a little more evident for all the little kiddies, don't you think?  I mean, are we doing science, here, or not?

+Mike Lentsch while I won't allow myself the time to read your whole comment (got better things to read) I already got stuck on the part you said that for something to be 'astounding' and 'overwhelming' you need something in comparison.. You state that as a fact really, but is it really? As firstly, it is merely a feeling that is brought to words, which words can vary in interpretation. Maybe your kind of 'astounding' feelings always get analysed directly, thus compared. The feeling I get when really experiencing the nothingness of space (or call it whatever you like) doesn't really need comparison, for it just is, and in that feeling I can let everything be. I think that is more the kind of thing +uzjedi meant, but that's just my guess.
+Martin Mcintosh Yes this is how you have in-depth discussions instead of the usual bullshit in the comment sections.  Maybe you can learn a thing or two.

This is a lie. The Creator created all in its indescribable current form, and in trying to describe the indescribable, we have created a complex web of lies (a large portion of science).
