It's superstition to you not to me.
Whether it is superstion is not a matter of taste or perspective. It either is, or it is not. And in this case, it is.
I understand science just fine, that is why evolution does not make sense to me. If we came from apes the apes would be gone, they are humans now.
Junebug, that is not how it works. You most definitley do not
understand science, specifically evolution, just fine. In fact, you appear to not understand it at all
. I know this because I actually studied science. I recommend that you do some better research from a legitimate science source. I cannot help you. I have neither the time nor the energy and I doubt you would believe anything I said anyway. That last part is a shame.
I'll help you out. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/evolution/library/faq/cat03.html

If you want to believe in god, I guess that is your prerogative. But you should find a different reason to justify your belief. Because the reason you give for it is completely wrong. My point here is not that evolution is correct. It is, but that is not my point. My point is what you think
is evolution, is not evolution
. Your description of evolution is as far away from evolution as can be. It would be like me describing jesus H as a mutant with superpowers who was part of the Justice League with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. That
is how wrong you are.
It would be one thing if you rejected evolution for what it actually said. But that is not what you are doing. You are rejecting crazy ideas (rightly so) and calling them evolution, which they are not.
How could an explosion know the earth would need an atmosphere to protect it from radiation off the sun?
This is also not evolution. This, I presume, is your take on Big Bang, which is an entirelt different theory in an entirely different branch of science. And it is also wrong on every level. There was no "explosion". And the "explosion" does not know things. There was no goal or requirement for the universe to produce us. We exist on earth because we could not exist on venus, or mars, or in the vast majority of the universe. We exist on earth because the conditions allow us to exist. We are a product of the environment. And the conditions of the environment are a happy coincidence.
Your thinking implies we were a given and everything is here for us. That is like a carbuncle on the hull of a ship thinking the ship was built for it to attach to. Or a puddle thinking the hole it which it sits was tailor made for itself. http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/70827-this-is-rather-as-if-you-imagine-a-puddle-waking
I can't believe people out there believe that stuff.
That is because you have been poorly educated. Sorry. It's true.
The difference between you and I is that I don't have to insult you to share my beliefs
You don't have to be insulted when someone points out you are wrong on the facts. I think you should be grateful. If some thing I believe is wrong - that is, if it conflicts with reality - then I want to know. I only want to believe what is true. I would bre grateful if someone pointed out my error.
As far as the first question, do we not put murderers to death in this country.
You are making god very human. You are assigning all of our human flaws and thinking to an allegedly omnipotent, omniscient being. If you had magical power to do anything
do you think you could find a way to help the people who need it without
the results being "grim and dark"?
A god who supposedly loves everyone and can do literally anything does not need to resort to human style justice.
When a cop saves a man by shooting the other man, there is a person saved with grim consequences. One man dies so another may live. You can't have your cake and eat it too,
have my cake and eat it if
I was omnipotent.
We are not talking about a cop of limited mortal means. We are talking about the OMNIPOTENT creator of ALL BEING. His resources are limitless. If god were the cop, he would not have to shoot anyone to save anyone. He would just need to will it to be.
You can't have God save the children without suffering the consequences.
You do not seem to be able to grasp the idea of god and power. You keep thinking god is just some invisible guy.
Please don't scratch out my eyes.
I don't know why I would scratch out your eyes. Being completely ignorant about science does not warrant being blinded.
