What is the holy grail?

Discuss this question

Question found in Religion & Spirituality In General
Holy grail is is supposed to be the cup used by Jesus at the last supper. Its place is only in myth not in the Bible or any of the church traditions. To my knowledge the quest for the grail was an important theme of King Arthur's round table. Thus I assume the origin is in fiction and myth.

What are black holes in Astronomy. How are they formed ?

Discuss this question

Question found in Space & Astronomy
I do not repeat the answer for part 1 of the question.
How are black holes formed?:
When a very massive star reaches the limit of its life by exhausting its nuclear fuel, gravity overcome radiation pressure of nuclear energy that balances gravity. This result in the star collapsing into itself. For most of the very massive stars the end could result in white dwarf or neutron star status. In the case of stars even larger that these the result would be a black hole where gravity would be so great that net even light can escape.

Note: There could be other processes that led to the formation of certain black holes. But this is the one commonly bandied about by cosmologists.

How do we get rain?

Discuss this question

Question found in Meteorology
Surface water - from oceans and others - evaporate and water vapour fills the air. This is carried by wind to all parts. When the percentage of water vapour goes above a certain limit the vapour condenses into clouds where the droplets are very small. Certain factors cause these droplets to grow. A cloud with such large drops are the rain clouds. These heavy drops fall to earth as rain.
Certain region gets more rain. Mountains stop the clouds carried along by the winds. If the mountains have forests the transpiration send more moisture into air. Thus the air gets supersaturated and condensation begins as rain. Monsoons are a good example of this.

According to experts ape came first and according to the Bible man came first, so tell me which one is true?

Discuss this question

Question found in Religion & Spirituality In General
1. There are two accounts of creation in the first book of the Bible - Gen. 1 and Gen. 2. In the first chapter of Genesis all animals -includes apes - are created: (Gen. 1:24) before humans are created: (Gen. 1: 27). This chapter gives the natural order of creation. In chapter 2 it says that man was created first and later all plants and animals were created for man. This chapter teaches us the fact that everything was created for us - that humans are the final goal of creation.

2. If you want to read an article trying to point out there is no contradiction between Bible and science in the matter of creation/evolution, please go to 'vempenysviews' on the internet. (on any search engine 'vempeny' will lead you there.) There click on 'long pieces' and in that on 'Adam and Eve'. this article gives a scientific analysis of the first 3 chapters of the Bible.
