Re: Does Rocketry Work beyond Earth's atmosphere?

That was a truly arrogant response, especially considering it was addressed to an imaginary person and certainly not myself since from my first post I have consistently stated that rocketry would not work in a vacuum (viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1632&p=2404517#p2404517).

To bring in the discussion about hypnotism from the other thread not only demonstrates your mental weakness in being unable to explain yourself without having to resort to character assassination, but it is a testament to your inability to consider anyone else's frame of thought other than your own.

Dear WL,
I did not mean to come off as arrogant but can understand it could be read that way. Let's not fill up this thread with chit chat. There's PMs and a chat box for that. And please understand that the people on this forum (I'm a recent arriver) have been doing this for years and are a bit tired of people asking questions and bringing up things that have already been covered.

Well, if the japanese are up to things like this one... It's just a matter of scaling.

EDIT: In fact this was not an hologram, just a projection in transparnent screen. However, I did a bit more of research on this topic, and it seems that already in 1969 it was possible to project holograms at 12 km...

ADMIN NOTICE (Simon): Dear Altair, I moved this post of yours to the Derailing Room - because what I wrote in this post of mine has nothing to do with holograms. It is about a wholly different laser technology which 'excites' molecules in the ionosphere in order to create "artificial stars".

A Catholic once told me that Catholic scientists mostly believe in evolution but just think that God started it all off. Who knows, that might be right, but it shows that the two are not incompatible.

I suppose I am the "God Squad" you refer to. I don´t mind the epithet, though somewhat pejorative, but, for the record, my objection to evolutionism (transformism) is not based on religion or the Bible, but on metaphysics, biology, statistics, observation and common sense (the first of these being the most important).

The fact that many Catholics admit transformism into their belief system does not prove the two are compatible but that Catholic teaching and identity have deteriorated.

Otherwise, I have read your posts with interest.
