Interesting you post that picture. I see you believe that things get more complex over time instead of progressing toward disorder. This is an interesting belief because it contradicts what we know about entropy. Energy in a closed system can not increase the order of things. Since the universe is a closed system, we would not be able to see anything progressing from disorder to order.
The total entropy of a closed system can only increase. However, there is no reason that the entropy in part of the universe cannot decrease, provided that it does not decrease the total entropy of the universe. The Sun alone generates enough entropy (through the dispersion of solar energy) to outweigh anything we do to decrease entropy here on Earth. Never mind all the other stars, all the black holes, etc. In short, our actions here on Earth have no meaningful effect on universal entropy - we don't even noticeably affect the universal rate of entropy increase, let alone running any risk of breaking the Second Law of Thermodynamics.
Facts are facts. I didn't create thermodynamics.
You don't appear to understand thermodynamics either.
By the way, question for you. Is your god bound by entropy?
If we evolved, God would've mentioned that in the creation account.
That assumes a god wrote the creation account to begin with, rather than it being written by primitive humans who used their imaginations to come up with an explanation that made sense to them.
I'm using the simplest possible form of logic here. Don't you think that's something God would know?
You are also slicing your logic to ribbons on Occam's Razor because of all the implicit assumptions contained in the idea of "God".
Well if you say it is fact, then it must be fact.
What you don't seem to realize is that your argument regarding God is exactly like this.
I am sorry, but I am not a fresh young mind in the 1st grade willing to believe anything a grown up says. Dawkins wants to hook 'em while they're young so it's ingrained in their minds and they will feel weird if they doubt evolution.
Funny, that's how theists operate - note that children of religious parents start being taught religious stuff before they're even able to read, let alone have the mental development to question what they're being told.
You haven't heard a peep from Him because you're an atheist. God does not show up where He's not wanted. That's rude behavior.
Logic failure. Astreja just said that she wanted God to show up right in front of her.
Do you show up to people's homes uninvited and just walk in the front door and plop on their couch and turn on the tv?
Nope. But if someone says that they want to meet me (say they've heard about me from other people), then that's enough of an invitation for me to introduce myself - assuming I care.
No, there isn't. The "2nd story" is a zooming in on the creation of man and what happened that day. It's not a different story.
Yes, it is a different story. It isn't just that the order is different either, although that's a key point. In the first story, the order goes plants, animals, humans (more to the point, it specifically mentions that humans were made male and female). In the second, it goes Adam (male human), plants, animals, Eve (female human). Also, note the chronology of the first story: Plants on day 3, animals on days 5 and 6, humans on day 6. Yet in the second story, Adam was there before both plants and animals.
Genesis 2:5 says that no plants had yet been made for there were no people to till them, and no rain to water them.
Genesis 2:6 says that the land was being watered.
Genesis 2:7 says that Adam (man) was created.
Genesis 2:8 says that a garden was made.
Genesis 2:9 says that trees grew.
Genesis 2:10 says that rivers were made.
Genesis 2:11-14 names the first four rivers.
Genesis 2:15-17 is where God told Adam his rights and responsibilities.
Genesis 2:18-20 is where animals were made.
Genesis 2:21-22 is where Eve (woman) was made.
There is no way to reconcile the two sequences of events without a lot of mental gymnastics, which violate Occam's Razor due to the assumptions they have to make.
How do you guys not know this stuff?
A much better question is, how do you not know that the two creation stories have a distinctly different order of events?
