    Outside of logic......like a star hanging on nothing, millions of miles away from anything else. What holds it there? It's outside of logic. Never the less, there infinite numbers of stars hanging on nothing and staying in their places. The Big Dipper looks the same as it did when I was a toddler. Go figure.

    This is an example of flawed logic based on, or rather, relying on ignorance. The reasoning is entirely subjective, demonstrated by the entirely incorrect use of the word 'hanging'.

    This is an example of someone trying to sound like he/she is actually saying something. Explain how they are suspended there. I'm waiting.

    To those who believe - nothing will dissuade them. To those who do not believe- nothing will convince them. What harm does it do to believe that angels or whatever help you in your life? I can't think of any harm.

    BTW, Shawn- you are way too angry.

    I believe angels can help people. I also believe that God helps those who help themselves.

    Whatever gets you through the night.

    And, Jeffro, here's something for just for you, since you're so logical. I know you probably use a thesaurus from time to time in your scientific writings:

    Just for me? Why, thank you! :)

    I do sometimes consult encyclopaedias, and english or foreign dictionaries on odd occasions. I don't think I've ever consulted a thesaurus when posting on this forum.

    If you're writing a poem, then sure, you can use 'hang' to describe the positioning of stars. But for any technical purpose, it's not accurate.
