Power tends to corrupt
Knowledge is power
Therefore knowledge tends to corrupt.
Your attempt to argue from the moral high ground ani't gonna' make it.
In Message 95 you asked
Let me ask you is a living organism closed system or open?
Maybe I missed its being answered but life is on open system. It includes the Sun. (or thermal vents or sulfide compounds)
Over here you tried to make those nice, little, blue, quote boxes; therefore, your earlier argument that it wasn't your style was false. You just hadn't been able to figure it out. The reason you failed their was because you closed the quote with [q/s] rather then [/qs]. No big deal, but ,dang, it would be a lot easier to figure out what you mean if you'd use the nice, little, blue, quote boxes.

17 But of the ponderosa pine, thou shalt not eat of it; for in the day that thou shinniest thereof thou shalt sorely learn of thy nakedness.
18 And we all live happily ever after.

All Over
More simply hydrogen at 65 miles is acted on by weak gravity and will only move down to a level of where it begins to be acted on by more particles in such a manner that allows it to stay at or near 65 miles.
Gravity at 65 miles up is 40002÷40652=.968 of surface gravity. The average man would weight only 5 lbs. less. Hardly weak.
Gas does not compact of its own accord.
Given enough gas that their mutual gravitational attractions over come their kinetic energies they will. You say so yourself in half a dozen posts and then seem to ignore it.
Show me [a star being born].
Sure, why not? Look over that way for 100,000 years. Don't blink.
Off topic material hidden
I remember from astrophysics that if you half the distance you quadruple the effect. Inversely if you double the distance you divide the effect by 4. This is the basis for how gravity wells function I would surmise. The farther you are from it the less likely you are to pulled into it - this would also go for gases.
The rules of Newtonian gravity are really quit simple. Most of us here, if we didn't understand them, would shut-up and listen to someone who did. Now explains to me how gases dose not attract other gasses and stuff and junk.

It's not the man that knows the most that has the most to say.
