 Pro `Newton's second law is not true because an airplane is faster than a car, while an airplane has more inertia and mass! ` Report this Argument Con `Rebuttals:"Newton's second law is not true because an airplane is faster than a car, while an airplane has more inertia and mass!"According to Newton's second law of physics[1], the net force has to be in proportion to, and in the same direction of, the object that is acted upon. That is how an airplane, although having more inertia and mass, is faster than a car.In other words, the net force that a car is acted upon is weaker than the net force an airplane is acted upon.Sources:[1] http://en.wikipedia.org...'s_laws_of_motion` Report this Argument Pro 1. According to the laws of thermodynamics (Conservation of energy[1], in particular), energy can neither be created, nor can be destroyed.2. If statement #1 is true, then energy must be finite.3. The Sun needs energy.4. If statement #3 is true, and the mass and energy is filling up those spaces, how does the Sun have energy?That is how Big Bang theory is not true.Report this Argument Con Rebuttals:1) Indeed. According to the laws of thermodynamics (Conservation of energy[1], in particular), energy can neither be created, nor can be destroyed.2) Yes, indeed, energy is finite.3) No.There is radiation between the Sun and Earth, which means that there is transfer of energy through space from the Sun to Earth. That solar energy then turns into heat. How does the Sun do that?Well, what happens is, that Sun takes 2 atoms and both go through a process called fusion. Remember that the Sun is not "producing" its own energy, but rather changing one's form.4) #3 is not true. And even if that was true, mass does not. Solid objects are dense, which means that matter is very compact in which they can not move around. However, for gas, it is not. They have space to move around in which they do. Same goes with the Universe.Also, why did you change the subject?Sources:[1] http://en.wikipedia.org...Report this Argument Pro http://answers.yahoo.com... is how Big Bang theory is false.Report this Argument Con Rebuttals: "http://answers.yahoo.com...... is how Big Bang theory is false." Alright. Yes, indeed. According to the laws of physics (Conservation of angular momentum[1], in particular), if something is rotating, and a piece of that falls off, that piece must rotate in the same direction. However, that is not what happens. There was a cataclysmic explosion. Asteroids and mass spread out, and the sound amplifies. At one point, asteroids were to hit against each other, forming stars, etc. How is everything in its position? Well, when the Earth, for instance, orbitted around the Sun, it was compelled to continue doing so at the same distance away from the Sun because of its gravitational pull. It was pulling the Earth towards the center of the Sun. However, because of the Earth's sideways motion, it was resisting. And then radiation happens between the Earth and the Sun, which means that the Sun transfers energy through space to Earth. That solar energy then turns into heat. And so on and so forth.
