Analise(sic) this and tell me I'm wrong if you honestly can.
Oh, that's rich. The guy with the reading, spelling, and grammar skills of a preschooler is telling me to not "play dumb".
I don't have to defend my beliefs. The empirical evidence that I use to form my beliefs does that quite nicely.
OK, I analyzed the passages you posted from your book of fairy tales. Yes, you're wrong. Honest.
It's a bunch of mythical nonsense. You are forcing an ancient text to say what you want it to say. You can do the exact same thing with the Koran, the Talmud, the Bhagavata Purana, the works of the Brothers Grimm, and as Sam Harris has shown, a cookbook.
Your measurements are irrelevant. We have been using communications satellites for decades before the now defunct space shuttles were even on the drawing boards. Besides, not all communication satellites are the size you suggest they are.
And you do realize that the communication satellite was invented by Arthur C. Clarke, an atheist? Well, nearly all scientists ARE atheists. 93% of members of the National Academy of Science identify themselves as atheists. It takes an open, free, and mature mind to invent amazing things... unclouded by superstitious nonsense.
