red - anger ??? as in raising a "red rag to a bull ?" nope - it means red, the colour. There is a big thing that is of the colour red.

Christianity specifically relevant? only in so much as it appears in roughly the same context as the 'big red thing'.

So, its about as likely as the BRT....
existing?
having something done to it?
doing something?

Does the BRT currently exist? Did it exist in the past? Will it in the future?

Is the BRT hot? Like a fire or something? Or lava/magma? Molten metal?

Is the BRT hot? Like a fire or something? Or lava/magma? Molten metal? good idea, but no

Did some event occur that "disproves" the existence of God? As it so happens, yes. Whilst it isn't relevant to the puzzle, it may help to ascertain the context of the puzzle.

Can the thing only be red? Is it always big? Is there only one "big red thing" in the world?

Can the thing only be red? Is it always big? as it happens, yes. It could have been otherwise, but now that it's big and red, it can only be big and red Is there only one "big red thing" in the world? yes...

The big red storm on jupiter?

The BRT is big....
In a mircroscopic sense?
As compared to a duck?
As compared to you?
As compared to a building?
As compared to a city?
As compared to a continent?
As compared to a planet?
As compared to a star?
As compared to a solar system?
In a galactic sense?
In a universal sense?

Is some aspect of the forum related? indeed it is :)

As compared to a planet?
As compared to a star?
As compared to a solar system?
In a galactic sense?

Is this the Big Red Thing? excellent thinking, but no it is not. The Forum is relevant as to what I am comparing the Big Red Thing to.

Is "it" a puzzle? $poiler? member of the forum? particular link on the forum that does or doesn't exist?

Is the big red thing in outer space? Has it been seen by many humans? Is it tangible? Is it in electronic form, e.g. on the internet?

Is the big red thing some piece of poetry? It is not. The Big Red Thing is something completely separate from the Forum, and is tangentially connection to some attempt to disprove the existence of God. Colour is relevant to Your involvement, but it is not the connection between the two items.

Is "it" a puzzle? $poiler? member of the forum? particular link on the forum that does or doesn't exist?

Is the big red thing in outer space? yes, but may be misleading Has it been seen by many humans? yes... Is it tangible? yes... Is it in electronic form, e.g. on the internet? no...

There is, I believe, a huge FA about the location of the Big Red Thing.

Does the big red thing presently have a single physical location spanning an area no larger than a duck?
If so, is that location: under the earth's surface? withing the earth's atmosphere? elsewhere in the universe?
Is it always the same size? If not, is it ever larger than a duck?
Does it have one dimension? two? three?
Is it solid? liquid? gas?
