Creationism can be proven scientifically.
Debate Rounds (3)
First, I will use Antoine Lavoisier's theory of the law of conservation of mass. This law states that a particular measurable property of an isolated physical system does not change as the system evolves.
The universe obviously exists, and this matter all came from somewhere. The laws of conservation assert that it is not possible that everything came from nothing, and the only way such a phenomena is able to occur is as a result of a higher being.
BUT, It NEVER stated it is a result of a so called "HIGHER BEING" .
What you're stating isn't even existing in the first place. Creationism cannot be proved scientifically.
Creationism is scientifically impossible. And I don't think there's facts under the rug about it. It's not just atheists who believe in evolution either, I know good Christians and I myself (agnostic) who believe in it. Plus what kind of tests could be done to prove creationism. We've already proved that the world is older than suggested by the Bible. Dinosaur bones are older than Adam and Eve.
Creationism isn't a scientific theory, it's a religious belief.
My first response is that I did not state anything specifically regarding Christianity or the Bible. Creationism is a common theme in most religions, so this argument is tangential rather than directly responding to mine.
The other response is that if we are going to focus on the Bible specifically, we need to realize the significance of the numbers "7" and "40" in Christianity. Both of these numbers were similar to "a lot" or "many" so the time frame is not literal.
If the so called higher god existed, Can you tell me who "created" this "Higher God"? Everything has been created, yes, isn't that what you're stating? That every matter present in the world is present due to a Creator? Even for the higher god to create things in this world, first of all, this higher god has to be created, Now, a very simple question is Who created this Higher God?
Lastly, Creationism presupposes that there was nothing except a creator and He made everything. On the other hand, to the best of my knowledge, science presupposes nothing, it simply states that prior to a certain point in time they are incapable of finding any meaningful measurements.
Now down to business. I want to point out that I never stated that science DOES prove the existence of a higher power, but rather that it CAN.
Second, the creation of the higher power is using a human ideal that is common. We assume that their is a beginning and an end to everything. This higher power could therefore have no beginning nor end, as it supernatural and does not abide by conventional laws of physics.
Finally I think we need to remember I don't advocate it having the potential to prove Christianity specifically, but rather some higher power at work in the creation process.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro said it can be proven, but pro didn't prove it. Wonder why Pro thinks it, if he can't argue it?
