i won't go into detail by myself to answer you, but if you want to know the standpoint i adhere in regard of this issue, you can read this website :
Nice dodge. Very well executed!
That website you linked to? Utter shit. I have to be honest, I mean just look at what the guy says:
At the onset, let me say that although I do emphatically maintain that God created everything, I adamantly do not believe that this Creation came into existence in a period of six 24-hour days (the "young-earth" view of Creation). For more details, see yôm = "day", long "days", evening and morning, the seventh "day", and ordinals.
A claim made by "young-earth" creationists is that no death and decay, of any kind, existed prior to Eve and Adam's sin in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:6). They insist, therefore, that human disobedience and rebelliousness toward God ruined all of God's "perfect" Creation.
Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned.... (Romans 5:12)
This verse speaks of Adam's original sin and how, through that sin, sin entered the world of mankind. As a result, all men have sinned. Because the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23a), and because all men have sinned, then death is the penalty mankind must pay, due to sin. In no way does this imply that death came to the animal or plant kingdoms because of sin.
The wages of each person's sin is the death of that person. Animals and plants cannot sin; they are incapable of disobedience and rebellion against God, and God does not hold them personally responsible for their actions. Animals and plants lived and died on the earth to help prepare the earth for the bringing of mankind (beginning with Adam and Eve) into the world on the sixth "day" of creation.
And let's compare this supposed stance that's already weak with just Bible verses to back it up of yours to the post directed towards you:
I think you don't understand just how severe a problem it really is. It isn't a matter of when the laws of thermodynamics came into play, it's a matter of why they came into play at all. And if the first law was in place at the Big Bang, then the others had to have been at well.
That means this speculative god put entropy into place. Entropy is what causes things to die - death in living things is the state in which entropic disorder makes life impossible. So that means this god set things up so that anything that lived in the universe would eventually die. Not some mythical Fall, not human choice. It was set up that way from the beginning, by this god. Who then blamed humans for the fact of their own deaths, even though those deaths were unavoidable due to the rules of the universe.
And since you apparently did not notice even though I said it in the post you quoted, I'm speculating. That means that I don't actually think it happened this way, but I'm considering it purely as a hypothetical thought exercise. So it doesn't contradict anything I said earlier, and I am not suddenly agreeing with your beliefs of a creator.
That doesn't even make sense. First off, the universe is 'eternal' only in the sense that there'll be space and uniformly-distributed heat an unfathomable number of years down the line, when entropy reaches its maximum value. I somehow don't think that's what you have in mind when you envision eternity. Second, his goal was not to create the universe as it now exists? That means he screwed it up from the very start.
Beautifully well done dodge. I am genuinely impressed.
Of all of God's creatures, Adam and Eve were the only ones who had the opportunity to escape death. They alone were made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26a,27a) and were given the capacity to live forever, had they chosen not to sin.
Right..and, which all-knowing and all-powerful God made these supposedly first humans in the first place knowing full well that they were going to sin? Oh that's right, your God.
We do not have to prove anything. If we come up with a better explanation, than atheists have, than we have a advantage. Thats all we pretend.
Atheists aren't saying that there's a sadistic, misogynistic, homophobic and slavery-approving God up there that loves each and every one of us (except the women..and slaves oh and non-Christians..and people who work on the Sabbath along with homosexuals), YOU are. The onus is on YOU to prove that THERE IS a God. We don't have to do shit. You're making the claim, not us. Get it straight.
To say theists do not have any evidece for Gods existence is plain wrong.
Which theists and which god? And if you're saying Christians and their God, then yes they don't have evidence for its existence. Which is fortunate really.
What differs us theists from atheists is just how we do interprete scientific evidence. All the matter is the interpretation.
Oh! OH! Well excuse me! I never thought gathering evidence to answer complicated questions and making millions of peoples' lives comfortable by advancing in the general field of science weren't important. All it matters is how all that shit is interpreted! Of course! How could I have been so blind?
And we have indeed many reasons to deduce God. While a common answer, when it comes to the hard questions, is the cheap " we don't know " escape.
Lol..that's rich. It's much better than claiming a specific diety with extraordinary stupidity magically waved its tentacles or hands or whatever and life sprung into existence!
I mean really, all of YOUR answers are either "because the Bible says so" or "God did it". Rational people? They actually think.
I am asking myself, what then science, philosophy, and religion serves for.......
Respectively, a much better quality of life while solving problems and questions in this universe, intellectually discussing it and to laugh at one day. The really useful religions are not of the Abrahamic stock really.
in reality this is just a escape for who does not want to aknowledge that the evidence points rationally and logically to God.
In reality, you are now just desperately preaching because you have no evidence at all of your god.
But a absolute nothing can ? please explain .......
Let's throw out the Theory of Evolution, the Big Bang Theory or whatever else you deem to be completely wrong simply because they make the concept of your god laughable and obsolete.
Now, in what way, is your god even remotely plausible? Really. Without using the Bible to prove what's in the Bible and actually using evidence, does your god exist?
Answer hint: He doesn't.
