I suspect all of us who YYA'd show a serious lack of science knowledge.

"The sun is not really "FIRE" as known commonly. It is a ball of heat, fueled by a reaction without oxygen, called fusion. It is the concept of a Nuclear bomb. The sun is mostly Hydrogen, and it fuses together into Helium, releasing massive heat. no oxygen or any other substance is required for the fusion process to take place."

I'm sorry but you may be an idiot.

No oxygen is required for a thermonuclear reaction.

Troll or stupid?

Nuclear fusion =/= Combustion

@528491 neither, it's a joke

Nah. It's got to do with politics.

I took this as a joke more than a serious question. I wouldn't have the knowledge to know how it really works anyway.

No, it's not. Stars work on fusion; They take hydrogen and fuse it into Helium, releasing a lot of energy. This process continues with larger and larger molecules until...

cba to google it, but the sun is completely made of gases anyway.
also what th3don said.

Stolen from highDEAS where it was already explained.

Oh those atheists! I suppose next they'll be telling us that there's this thing that keeps us coming back to the earth. I bet they'll name it gravity! XD

Next thing you know they'll tell us that all objects have a tendency to resist motion and call it inertia!

I've heard they devised this thing called 'cell respiration'. I guess it's supposed to explain how we breath or something stupid like that. Obviously the air we breathe is is made by the one true Lord for our use! Atheists need to stop their denial!

Have you heard of this "photosynthesis" crap?
Plants don't convert water, carbon dioxide, and sunlight into oxygen and glucose. It's just always been there!

'Chlorophyll'? Poppycock! The leaves turn orange in the fall and fall off because it's part of His divine plan!

Yeah, and "cells"?
There will never be anything smaller than an ant!
God wishes it to be so!
