yes I am a Rush fan. If I am going to visit your site from time to time.( If i am allowed to) I have read many studies , many arguments, and a lot of different opinions, none have I found so compelling as to make me believe in evolution or creation .
You may wish to start looking at the evidence then. As opposed to using things such as "And to believe other wise seems foolish to me. " and "As for the Big Bang , ect. ect. What caused it .. and yes I assume a "first cause" there had to be one , no matter how far back. Something had to have happen somewhere , somehow, by something. " as well as "That is my point. I can not conceive the universe simply appearing out of nothing".
As soon as you've started using this kind of thing then you've guaranteed that you'll never really find any true evidence of anything. Everything that you have said so far exists to eliminate potential options to only those that appeal to you. Such as the assumption of a first cause. Right there you have immediately restricted yourself in what you will accept as evidence, and merely because you make an assumption that there must have been this first cause. An assumption made without any evidence or reason. Likewise you ignore other evidence solely because it "seems foolish" to you, as opposed to having any rational reason to dismiss it.
This is why you do not have compelling evidence, because by your own admission you only accept the evidence that you want to accept. Not the evidence that actually exists.
I read to have the information to keep my mind open.
However you are not keeping your mind open. As I pointed out to you, you have effectively closed it quite tightly. An open mind would not do or say the things that you do.
You have also, I note, passed over the posts of several others who have pointed out the flaws in your reasonings and in what you are saying. If you wanted to learn it would behoove you to actually address the points that are being made against you, as opposed to ignoring them.
It's very typcial for theists who come in here to talk about how they are open-minded and trying to go on about how much they read science books and attempt to learn. Very few, however, actually demonstrate this interest when they actually begin to talk, and any desire to learn about anything is really only a thin veneer they've created to help them attempt to justify a god belief that they know deep down makes no sense.
If you are honestly interested in opening your mind and learning then you have to forget about what seems right to you, or the assumptions that you seem to wish to make about how the world works and focus on how the world actually works
and be willing to follow the evidence wherever it leads (not just where it seems right). Until you can at least do that you cannot claim with any degree of honesty to have an open mind or to be interested in learning anything.
