The thing I've always had a problem with and all believers should to is that...the unvierse existed for approximately 9 billion years before the Earth even began to form. What the heck was "God" doing all that time...scratching "His" head?...or balls? Laugh

Yeah yeah, I know, "God" exists outside of time and a day is like a thousand years and all that. But still, for "God" to have just sat on "His" hands for 2/3 the life of the universe doesn't jibe with an "all-powerful" and "all-knowing" being.

It is a false belief that causes some people to deny scientific facts in order for them to live in a fantasy world. Is God real or not? Let the evidence speak for itself.

Replies:

It's obvious you haven't got a clue as to the intent of my post. How can anyone not allow someone to believe in something. Religions do that. But I am fully aware of your intent here. Accusations, innuendos, and personal attacks.

Trying to make the creation story in Genesis fit into what science has revealed about the beginning of the universe is a typical Christian creationist response.

The only thing about your statement is how ridiculous it is.Quote:

I've dealt with condescending and mean spirited people like you my entire life. I didn't just get off the boat.

You make a blanket statement that sends a message everyone with a religious belief is wrong and your scientic facts make them null and void, therefore God doesn't exist. A quote from Carl Sagan does not make you Carl Sagan or anyplace near him.

As far as I'm concerned your statement above is mean Spirted and condesending with the malice twards people, who are comfortable in their religious beliefs. Your entire premise or opinion did not have to include anything that deducts all relgions are wrong and anyone following them is in a false belief and fantasy world. It is also not very scientific to assume the proof of one thing therefore provides facts to disprove something else. There are many that do studies of biblical or religious writings which your studies do not include. That is your assumption. If anything, there are far more unanswered questions in the formation of our Universe discovered daily with the Hubble telescope and other sciences. Seems logical to assume all the facts are not in yet, and your opinion that seems to "shame anyone with a religous view", is scientifically incomplete. By the way, how much information has been discovered since Carl Sagan died? We are still learning, and catagorizing all religous opinions as Fantasy, is condesending and mean spirted, and typical for evolutionists.

Is God Real or Not?

The very title of your post is a front against religion, not a scientific front, or you would have posted this in the Science forum, not religion. You start out with malice twards religions, make an insulting blanket statement about fantasy beliefs to bait, and get all "high and mighty" when it happened. 🙄 You started by looking for a confrontation, at least admit it. 🙄

you are assuming, event, that humanity and more specifically life on earth, is the only thing in the whole universe that God has actively been involved in, in that whole billions of years of time.

i say the universe is fully of different modes of creation, life even, much of which is probably not even recognizable to you or i.

You can do all the studies you want to on "How" the universe was formed, but you also have to do studies on "Why" it was formed the way it is. Why is earth so far, the only planet to have life in such a huge universe? Why is the the closest possible other life so unreachable? Why wouldn't it be natural for people to be thankful to God for this gift of life, and why are others so intent on breaking down that faith or belief?

Hi,

Evolution is still just a "theory", even though most people agree with it, it has not been given the status of "Fact" or "Truth".

Truth itself is a very slippery subject, because ones persons truth is not the same as another persons truth, just like one persons reality is different to anothers, according to Einstiens "theory" of realitivity, Lol.

My opinion is the same as its always been, Evolution and God are both "truth". God creates through evolution just like God creates through nothing. Gods power is not restricted to any one way of creation.

Who has the answer to what existed in the beginning, before anything, if if wasn't God? Its easy to come up with a theory for "something", but what the theory for when it was "nothing"?

Or maybe we can just keep making up more pseudo-religions when science makes a new discovery. How many hundreds of different belief systems have we ever had in the world now? Wouldn't it be safe to just assume there is no "God" until we have some actual proof?...seriously, before the year 2200 (if we make it that far) when we'll be having laser wars over who's got the "God" with the best techno outfit.

Not quite.

Why not just assume that God exists as a logical concept, and reject all religions except our own personal ones?

From an empirical standpoint, Faith[assume(believe) that God exists], is still unprovable.
So I guess it is all right if I believe in Magic and Witches and not get persecuted as a Pagan.

assume God exists as a logical concept ............

No thanks
