    Thats not true at all. All forms of light have a certain strength. A large supernova would, as far as I know, emit all forms of light, which admittedly gamma rays would cause by far the most damage.

    Either way I still said light, not visible light in what was mentioned. You still thought gamma rays were not a part of light. A physicist would have asked straight away whether I was talking about visible light or not, and you didn't, proving my point that you have no idea what you are talking about. I led you on because it was obviously a hurdle you would fall at. And you did :rolleyes:

    oh and btw DYR. I am not a new member.
    You used the word bright not strength and indicated it would be a visual thing, indicating visible light.

    No, you said brightness, brightness is an attribute of visual light.

    I'm not a physicist and neither are you from your level of knowledge so that has no bearing, you either got your words mixed up or meant visible. Both your fault.

    Your also a liar? Oh how cool, explains the argument changing.

    Earlier, I 'm not sure I did fall foul of the gambler's fallacy. Imagine:

    Say there are 100 stars, 10 of which could decimate humanity if they went supernova. That's 10/100=1/10 chance.

    Say 10 stars go off without impact (as you claimed they have). Now there are 10/90=1/9 chances of being hit.

    On a statistical level, the chances do increase, even though each single event could either be or not be damaging, the chance overall has increased from 1 in 10 to 1 in 9. This is different from flipping a coin because there the chance is reset to 50/50 after each flip.
    one supernova and another supernova occuring are mutually exclusive events ok? Your theory would be entirely true, but there is no correlation or evidence to suggest that any rule, (for example 10/100) stars in the sky are ready to go supernova at any one time. I see what you mean, we are apparently well overdue a supernova in the milky way now, however it doesn't actually make it any more likely to happen at a moment in time.

    Brightness and strength are the same thing. I've just explained how I am still right, as you did not realise that gamma rays are a part of light. You just made an assumption because I said brightness I meant visual light, and therefore meant visual light in all my other posts. You have absolutely no valid point. Kapeesh? You are really in no place to comment on my knowledge with the ******** you've spouted.
    How am I a liar?
    Your argument is changing all the time. You keep accusing me of something different, this time it is being a liar. You have basically admitted being a liar, when you realised you have no source for claiming 98% of stars nearby are uncatalogued.

    I would just give up. I'll be going to sleep after your next reply anyway, but no doubt you will have to get the last word to keep the faith that you "won" :yes:

    I guess I'm just saying that statistically it makes it more likely, but it obviously doesn't necessitate it. Just redeeming my knowledge of the gambler's fallacy (and my status as a poolee)! Now, bed!

    Hahahaha

    yeah, you've proved me as a liar

    Rucklo has proved me as a liar everyone, because he said so. once.

    The great Rucklo, who can't even spell defence properly, has ruled that I am a liar, 98% of stars that are close to earth are yet to be observed, and that humans are insignificant, just because there are bigger objects in the universe. All hail Rucklo. The glorious fountain of (definitely correct and definitely not wrong) knowledge.

    Have fun with your weight training blog! hahahahaha

    This is the Sun compared to the biggest star known.



    Then think how big the Sun is compared to Earth.

    And how big the Earth is compared to you and me.

    That is quite a scary thought.
    You need to read the horror fiction of H.P. Lovecraft, my friend. His fiction specialises in man's insignificance before the vast seas of darkness which constitute the cosmos.

    I don't know what that means, but after seeing your weight training blog, I have decided not to annoy you in case you say you will hit me one day. Because if you say you will, you definitely will, as you are the fountain of all knowledge (apart from matters relating to the electromagnetic spectrum), and you never, EVER lie.
