Ok, I know there are people arguing about the big bang and all, but really, that doesn't explain how WE got here. And evolution doesn't either. Think about it, how did the first single celled organism get here? If there wasn't a God, then it wouldn't have just appeared now would it? Exactly.
Consider these facts:
- if the "resonance" between nuclear ground state energy levels of helium and beryllium was out by 1% there would not be enough carbon in the universe to sustain life.
- if the ratio of nuclear strong force differed by 1 part in 10^16 then no stars could have formed
- if the ratio of the electromagnetic force-constant to the gravitational force-constant were increased or decreased by 1 part in 10^40 then we would have a universe containing either only big stars (too hot to sustain life) or only small stars (too small to manufacture chemical elements)
- if the ratio of expansion and contraction forces acting just after the Big Bang had altered by as little as 1 part in 10^55 then the universe would either have expanded too quickly, so no galaxies formed, or too slowly so that it quickly collapsed
- unless our universe fell within a very tiny volume of the phase space of possible universes, corresponding to an accuracy of 1 part in 10^10^123 then there could be no second law of thermodynamics
Imagine you have a dice. This isn't any ordinary dice; it has 10^10^123 sides to it. Pick a number. Believe me, you've got a lot to choose from. Imagine rolling the dice. Imagine the probability of it landing on the VERY FIRST ROLL.
That is what happened with the universe. It didn't have a back-up plan and it couldn't choose to remake itself if things went wrong. It rolled the dice, again and again, and it ALWAYS landed on the perfect number on the very first roll.
Now tell me life could have evolved by chance.
I know people like to say that their is no evidence for a creator so therefore such a being does not exist, but I'll put it like this, the belief in a creator is as logical as those who would follow creation back to the big bang theory or any other cause of creation. Universally, man's mind has always followed his present to some theory on how everything was created. To say a belief in God is from an ignorance fallacy, is then to call any of man's thoughts on the beginning of creation an ignorance fallacy since every claim speaks out of ignorance. No one was there at the beginning. If someone says God is the creator, that is a completely logical statement. If someone says it was the big bang, that is a logical statement as well. I could easily say to those who choose any other theory that you have made that theory your "god" of creation.
Science says that the universe started around 13.5 billion years ago and out of tiny pieces of dust exploding it made planets, solar systems, stars, diamonds, trees, fish, water, color, organs, sound heat, cold, elements, snow, lightning. Look at your selves according to scientists we are dust, or blood, are complex body's with muscles veins hair. Think of a pregnant woman i her body she is creating veins blood vessels a brain, skin,eyes, reproductive organs and this is created by dust 13.5 billion years ago a mother having a child proves life can be created by a creator there is no evidence in evolution just that we look like monkeys and are DNA is close to theirs. After a billion years in the past science falls apart not really knowing what happened other then our world being created and the supposedly big bang
Our world is amazing, it is exactly the right, size, weight, density and distance from the sun to sustain life. As scientists study more about the universe they see what an amazing system it is, all of this points to intelligent design.
Jesus is also an indication of the creator. Jesus single handedly changed the world in just 3 years.
If you believe in evolution or not, there is a Creator, be it atoms or God. It's a trick of the words really. You could believe atoms created you or God created you, no use fighting about it. It's kind of a pointless argument at this point. So yeah, there you go.
First, science has explained many things. Including evolution, creation, etc. Remember, the scientific community calls these theories, but they are widely accepted in the scientific community. There are theories on how the universe was created, how we became humans today. These theories run the basis of the scientific community. Now one theory on our creation is the big bang theory. This theories states that there was only one molecule in the the void (before our universe) at one time. Now for no reason this molecule exploded and created the universe. Now I am not to let my religious views to get in the way of science, but what gave that one molecule the force to explode so violently that even trillions of years later, our universe is still expanding? What about existing molecules today? They have been running for trillions of years. What gives them the energy to run without rest? Why is it that out of all of the planets that are known, why is it that our planet, Earth, is the only one that supports life? Is it sheer luck, or another force at work? Evolution, why is it that the human is the only animal without a natural defense? Monkeys have teeth, crabs have claws, cats have claws and teeth, etc., yet we have next to nothing? We may have teeth, but what are they for? Our jaws aren't strong enough to bite through shells, we don't have extreme strength like a monkey or a chimpanzee. Why is it that if we came from monkeys, that there are still monkeys and chimpanzees today? (This is from the book Genesis, in the bible.) The bible is over four thousand years old. In Israel, we did not have the knowledge of medical science. Yet the Israeli people knew that the female has a rib in an odd place. They knew nothing of the ribs, yet Moses knew that God gave Eve a rib from Adam. How did Moses even know what a rib was, or did another power tell him?
Disclaimer: This is not to offend any person who believes in science or is an atheist. I have not allowed my own religious views to come into contact with science. I am merely stating the obvious information.
When at an art museum you see a painting. Did someone make that painting or did it magically appear? Do paintings paint themselves? Does a cat go woof? The answer is no. Paintings do not paint themselves. If you can't believe that then you're a little arrogant. As a painting has a painter behind it, so does our world have a creator. Today we don't see new worlds appearing. We don't see someone magically (without illusion) making a painting appear. That's because there is a creator behind everything. There is a creator behind a painting and creator behind the painter, so on and so forth. What is the overall likely hood that a world would be just created out of no where? If you say the universe created our world what are the chances that it would perfectly come together as so without someone guiding the procedure. How could the universe do that without someone creating it. That is why there is a creator of our world. I'm not asking you to follow my religion or to believe in genesis, I am asking that you open you perspective and think logically. Also what is the motto of the United States (I'm assuming most people here are American, if your not sorry for assuming)? It is "In God we trust". I'm sorry if you don't like this but common America let's follow that motto and act more like the Americans we should be. This is more then a question on whether there is a creator, this is a question on whether God is real. Whether we can join as one nation under God. I could go on all day, but to conclude, there is a creator of our world. Thank you.
Being a spiritual deist myself, I disagree with religion and the Abrahamic religions in particular. However, I do agree that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and choice of lifestyle, so long as they don't force it down other people's throats. God is not some big man up in the sky that judges us upon our death, God doesn't answer prayers and God doesn't interfere in our free will because there is no reason to do so. Rather, God is an entity beyond our perceptive abilities. The classic argument I hear from atheists to negate God's existence is that there is no empirical proof to support it, but God isn't something we're supposed to understand through the empirical as God is beyond our senses (I keep saying 'God' because I am trying to avoid using 'he' or 'she'). There are some philosophical arguments to support it but I won't prolong my argument with them (look for Descartes, Hobbes, Spinoza and John Locke). Rather, God is a infinite, omnipresent entity that began the universe and is a part of it, but things like evolution and the formation of stars through fusion (my point being that all the stuff science has explained so far is fact) was not created by God. I believe in the Big Bang theory but I believe that God is what caused it. Things don't happen for no reason or without something to cause them. Also, life is simply far too complicated, unique and (for lack of a better word) huge for some higher power not to exist. I believe a good way to understand God is to think of God as being, in part, a parent, they don't want to hold your hand and spoon-feed you for your entire life but they want you to grow and develop on your own. I don't know if God has any particular plan for any sentient being in the universe, but I do believe God does wish for us to grow and develop to limitless potential (when I say 'us', I don't mean humans but every life form in the universe.
Yes. How else can we just appear on earth? What made the Big Bang? What animals are evolving today....NONE! You call yourself logical but how logical is it to believe that a world as organized as this came for a bang or matter or material? It isn't.
I am 12 years old and I don't have a lot of evidence that can say that EVOLUTION IS WRONG and if that's true then there is a creator HIS NAME IS GOD/JESUS
There is no good reason to posit a conscious creator of our world or of the universe. Until verifiable, repeatable evidence is provided that suggests the existence of such an entity more strongly than it suggests anything else, any god claim is an appeal to the Argument From Ignorance Fallacy.
First of all, evolution is a fact, not an opinion. Second of all, there is no evidence at all that proves that a God created anything. If science doesn't prove something ( which we admit, it doesn't have the answers for everything yet) doesn't give anybody the right to factually say " oh then that means God did it" ... Well which one?
I believe solely in evolution. The bible is a fairy tale. Religion is dangerous and steals people's intelligence. The idea behind the separation of church and state is a great one! God did not create humans and we did not live with Dinos. Do people who believe in god also believe in Santa or the Easter Bunny??? If god created the world and us then why did he do just a crappy job? Most people are poor and uneducated. Most countries lie to their citizens and there are countless major problems facing the world like climate change and depletion of natural resources. This is pretty bad work for a all powerful and all knowing god.
There very possibly could be a creator, God, greater power, or whatever else you call it. However, there's no absolute proof of there being one. We could easily lie to ourselves and say there is but we'll never know for sure. Maybe you personally have really truly met a greater power and believe it, but that's a very personal thing no one else will experience the way you have. Until someone has had their own miracle happen to them, they probably won't believe in a creator.
- There is no reason why. Because scientifically seen it could have come from "nothing" and that's more likely.
- The believe in god comes from our ancestors - They believed it because they could not explain our world better then to say "god did it". But today we should not believe in anything except there are highly likely theories or even evidence.
- The existence of a creator is not equally likely than there is not creator: Only because you cannot prove something wrong does not mean it is real therefore.
According to statistics, in future everybody will be an atheist, because no body really believes those things anymore. The earliest prediction of a world with a majority of atheists is 2038.
No, three is. It is also the most rigid shape, a three sides shape. Twelve is obviously the most divine number, though. If there were going to be creators, there would be twelve.
In all honesty though, there isn't enough evidence for a creator.
I do like Taoism though, does that entail a creator?
OK I'm not going to talk about if there is a god or not- there are too many viewpoints on the topic and I think you're allowed to believe what you want. I AM going to talk about some disadvantages to religion. Like, just look at the Taliban for example- look how religion effected them and how that affects us. I know that this might be a little extreme but all this religious conflict could tear us apart. Just give a few very religious people a few guns and the damage would be enormous.
There is absolutely no evidence that any god or "creator" exists. Such arguments seem to rely entirely on the Argument from Ignorance fallacy, i.E. "I don't get it therefore God".
There is no indication that anything in our universe required any supernatural intervention to exist or to function whatsoever. None.
Religion is too convenient for the rulers of our world. There is no scientific validity in religion yet it dictates how most people behave. People tolerate injustice in this world because they believe justice will be served in the afterlife. Religion causes people to accept their way of life as fact without questioning unfairness and atrocities committed towards them by people in power.
Lawrence M. Krauss explains beautifully the understandings that the more we know about the universe the less likely a god or gods were the answer to our existence. Understandings the latest discoveries of our universe has shown that a universe is a free lunch. The meaning of a "free lunch" is based on the fact that our total energy of the universe added up is of a Zero net energy, hence the universe is a "free lunch". Krauss's book "A Universe From Nothing" tells us that nothing from a scientific perspective (this includes no particles, no background radiation, no time, no space and so on) shows that even nothing is unstable. We can have a free lunch and even the odds of nothing is on our side by being unstable.
