No evidence to support them? We have evidence all around us. That's the point. We use this principle in solving a crime. You may see evidence as a bloody knife, or a human hair, or a messed up crime scene and conclude..."Something bad happened here" Were you there? Did you see the crime? No. But you see the effects of the crime. Nobody would conclude, "Nothing happened here, the wind must have blown this blood onto the knife because the door was left open". That is absurd. A creation ALWAYS requires a creator. Better yet, a design requires a designer. The hummingbird evolved? Can we go there?
So which god was the creator? You see, rockv, each religion claims this that one can see “evidence all around us”. Show me that your god created the universe. Where and what is the evidence that supports your claim? Why wasn’t it the gods of the Chinese pantheon? The Egyptian one?
I'm glad someone caught this. He claimed the evidence "is all around us," but what's the point if he cannot prove which of the thousands of gods that created the universe and the Earth, which one really did it? After all, Amen-Ra, Ishtar, Kirin, Tiamat, and the Annunaki were here a long time before El, YHWH and Jesus ever were. His blather may as well be seen as thus:
The sun exists proves Ra exists.
Life exists proves Ishtar exists.
The seasons changing proves Persephone, Ceres and Hades exists.
That People die proves Pluto exists..
after all, the existence is all around us. Rockv, prove your god is a real god and not just an upstart wipper-snapper that rebelled against his parents.
If you caught the bacteria that causes leprosy today, would you take a scientifically proven antibiotic or would you take the biblically proscribed pigeon sacrifice to cure yourself?
You didn't know that the All-Knowing, All-Powerful, All-Powerful god actually left a perscription to cure leprosy? Seriously, if you contracted it, would you rather cast your lot in with a fallible, limited human or with your god? It consists of sacrificing 2 pigeons and wiping blood on your cheeks or something like that. Is god's cure hogwash or fact? If it was so reliable/infallible, why were people still trying to find a cure thousands of years later?
If you suspected your spouse of cheating on you, would you use the magic potion in Numbers 5 that he "gave us" so you can know beyond a shadow-of-doubt wether they are or not?
