I believe it it is a "miracle" that we exist. The universe seems to be so bent on us not existing that some scientists believe it is beyond the realm of statistical possibility.
laxbro, you do this for a very specific reason. You see, you start with the notion that your God exists and you are cramming everything about reality into that mold. Everything you see is some sort of reflection of God, not because that's really what's happening, but because your belief literally forces you to do it. Here is an example...
I believe that God created the universe so large to show how small we really are and how great He is.
And if God created a universe that just contained our solar system, you would say He did it to show his emminent master plan or some shit. And if God created a universe that consisted of just our planet, you would say He did it all just to keep himself close to us. And if... and if... and if. It doesn't stop. You probably do it with everything. Most of you do it.
The reality is, your notion that God created everything just for us is really stupid. It would make much more logical sense if God created something that would allow us to live and thrive in the vast majority of the universe. Really, at some point you have to separate out your beliefs and look at reality. Your notion here just plain doesn't add up. You would have a much better argument if it really was just our little solar system here.
It seems to me that the only way we could have existed is from a God creating us.
Again, because you FIRST believe in God, you are forced into that notion. If you were someone who approached the question from a rational standpoint, you would actually look for other possibilities instead of discounting anything that goes against what you have been brainwashed to believe. You don't do that. You think you don't have to do it, because you believe you already know the truth. Well, you don't know the truth. Sorry. There are literally billions of ways our universe could have been created without the Christan God's involvement. The fact that you are too closed minded to see that is not really our problem. It's yours. It's a little pitiful to be honest.
The universe is expanding and so we look at the big bang that started everything into motion. But what started the big bang?
Again, there are literally billions of possibilities. Without knowing what exists outside, or what existed before our universe, everything is a guess. It could have been 2 universes colliding. Or maybe giant black holes sucking matter from one universe and pouring it into our universe. To say the only possibility is God, is really very narrow minded. Open your eyes.
You make it seem like because we don't know what caused the big bang, that we are naturally just supposed to believe it was the Christian God by default. Why do you have a hard time seeing how foolish that is? Why would anyone in their right mind do that? Your argument has no greater claim than that of Zeus, Thor, Allah, Buddha, or any other God ever invented by man.
E=mc^2 so matter comes from energy, but where does energy come from. At some point, something that wasn't had to come into existence. I see that "something" that started everything into motion as God. At some point, you have to believe in something because nothing can be proven without a doubt.
You think like ancient man used to think laxbro. You do know that this is 2010 right? If you are confused, think about it this way. When ancient man saw lightning an didn't understand where it came from, they also said, "it must be God." And when ancient man saw a tornado, they didn't understand where it came from, so they also said "it must be God." And when laxbro says something had to start everything in motion and doesn't understand how it happened, he says "it must be God". Dude. Just stop. We know how lightning works. We know how tornados happen. We may not yet know exactly what started everything in motion, but the idea that there is no other explanation than the Christian God is... well... just plain dumb. In light of the severe lack of evidence, it should be rejected immediately.
All we are asking you to do is think like a man laxbro. Not like a child.
