I really do not believe that I was created by this divine being to sit on this hunk of rock and worship him. There is simply no proof of his existence besides the Bible. This goes for all religions too how can all of your religions be right. There is no way to prove this though without having a person die and then come back to life so I am building my opinion on shaky ground. With the Scientific advancements we gain every day it will probably be known how we came to be in the next 5 or 10 years or even less.
I saw your debate and am just getting back from church and thought that God was saying that I should challenge you to this debate. My opening argument is to tell you that the most common disbelief in the Bible is that the world was created in seven days. Science seems to contradict that by putting it into millions and millions of years. But if you think about it according to the Bible God has been around since the beginning of time. Do you think that God sees every single day an actual day? We are comparing two completely different perspectives. God's seven days could as well be equal to millions and millions of years. Breaking it down into parts. Day one: God said let there be light and there was light. The common scientific argument is the Big Bang Theory. The Big Bang Theory sounds a lot like if God would say let there be light. Also in my biology class (study of life) one of the first things that we were told was that life can only come from life. So if they say that the Big Bang theory is some small exception for this law. And if you say that I can use the Bible as a reference you should tell that to anyone who has written a world history book because the old testament has been used more in history books. There is a reason that the most informed on historic battles is in Israel( the holy land)
In my opinion I do not think that the Big Bang theory caused the universe to be born. If this were true why do major explosions like nukes not create life. I also do not believe that we were created by a Divine force. If we were created by a God then he corrupted us pretty bad. I believe that this Earth was created by dust clouds in the universe that clumped together to make a large landmass and life was also created from whatever else is inside said dust clouds. We humans were just microscopic bacteria that adapted to the terrain around it.
God does not make faults he makes decisions God gave us the power of free will and in the garden of Eden with Adam and Eve man had fallen into temptation when they listened to the serpent and were made to impure for the garden of Eden. and I'm wondering if your saying that we were created by whatever else was in this "dust cloud" then that is like hitting the default setting something created life in there.
If your God gave us free will than look where it got the human race we are terrible things. every Human being has raging greed which often leads us to complete ruin. Every great civilization has been destroyed by some sort of Greed related crisis. If God made us in his image does that not mean that he was a fairly corrupted person. I just can't bring myself to believe that I was created by a Divine being that I have never seen or have any evidence of. Science and Communism are the future of the human race and Religion will someday lead to the deaths of many people. With all this unexplored Space all around of us I highly doubt that the answer of our existence is in a book on this small planet. There is a lot that we don't know about our existences, but if God really does exist that would take away all the Fun.
Thanks for humoring me, take a break and watch Into the Wormhole. It's really good.
