Christians, if the universe came to being naturallistically, how would a "Godless" universe look like?

What would be different?

    Well, you would expect there to be a lot of injustice. Like, you would expect good things to happen to bad people. You would expect a cut throat attitude to be an advantage. You would expect the weather and things that are beyond our control to often be the deciding factors in our lives. Some sci-fi writers have postulated that such a world might have, say, a lack of rain when rain was needed and that this might cause a lack of food growth and people might die of something called 'starvation'. Apparently, the theory goes that without enough food, the body loses fat and then muscle and then dies. I know, sounds crazy. In a similar vein of thought, a lack of water might cause a person to die of thirst. You know that feeling you get when your mouth is a bit dry so you go inside for a refreshing glass of lemonade ? Well, the idea goes that that feeling could actually prove 'fatal *' if it went on for a few days. And it's said that there might be things called 'desperation', 'violence', 'war' and 'crime' if there were no God.

    *'the word 'fatal' was coined by sci-fi writer William Gibson, describing a property of an action or event which caused a state where the body seems to be sleeping but then it keeps on sleeping and begins to rot, the way vegetables do when we have a surplus of them (and when don't we have a surplus of vegetables, right ?). It's one of those weird sci-fi words. Interesting world, the sci-fi imaginary universes but I wouldn't want to live there.

    Yep, just be glad there's God and that He keeps everything just wonderful for us!

    the word universe means single-spoken sentence. the Bible says it all came into being by God's expressed word. a Godless universe wouldn't be a universe at all. you can't have creation without a Creator. and it wasn't created naturally, that would infer it was intrinsic of itself. it wasn't. it was divine intervention.

    Umm there would be one! That is what the universe would look like. Nothing would be here. God is the Creator of the Universe; as has been said it can not have been its own cause.

    Are you implying that the appearance of the universe is non-sequitur to the existence of god?

    That would be correct.

    It would be one which didn't look as if it was balanced on a knife edge between not existing at all, and just being a diffuse cloud of helium and hydrogen gas.

    It would look exactly like the one we live in now.
