    You need only have a closer look. No intelligence designed that. It is insanity, bound by the laws of nature, pure chaos. We are learning more of that, it is a beautiful and frightening place.

    Well yeah... What reason do you have for believing a creator?

    The main argument for the creator seems to be that watches are complicated & we know they're made by a watch maker there-fore the complexity of the universe means it must have been made by a universe maker. The obvious flaw in this argument is that if you show the same watch to a 2 week old baby the baby doesn't know that there's a watch maker. Which leaves us to question HOW do we know there's a watch maker. The reason we know there's a watch maker is that we've observed that watches are made by watch makers. How ever it's never been observed that universes are created by gods, that's just the assumption of uneducated primitive people who wrote some book a few thousand years ago.

    Also given what it says in that book you come to realize it makes no claim that god created the universe, he created (so it claims) Earth in about five days & everything upon it the spent only one day creating stars (gosh that must have been a busy day). So even in the bible god only created a small fraction of the universe (funnily enough the fraction one would expect uneducated primitive people to know to exist).

    What is intelligent about black holes swallowing whole star systems, planets colliding, meteor showers, cosmic radiation and so much more that does nothing but destroy?

    Chaos is more likely than design!

    But thanks for pointing out how ridiculous it is to claim everything was created from nothing like the Christians do!

    Science explains the big bang was not from nothing but from a singularity that was all the matter and energy in the universe compressed into a single point that then expanded rapidly!

    So it was always here!

    But why are Christians always claiming the big bang came from nothing? Are they that ignorant? Did they sleep through school or is it that they know the truth but think they can twist it because everyone is gullible?!

    It is only Christians that claim that there was nothing and then god popped up out of nowhere and is supposed to have then produced everything from nothing!

    I believe that intelligence is inherent in everything even particles and atoms, the very building blocks of life. Everything is alive, aware, conscious, and in motion. Life creates Life. Things move towards more complexity. We don't need a Superior Being out there that is some special kind of being that does not share the same being-ness we share, the same conscious awareness we have and all life has, that has some magical powers that need no explanation. The chances of even simple life forms appearing by chance alone according to Professor Davis is ten to the tenth power to the 80th power, inconceivably longer that the age of the universe. There is another answer, not creation by a Superior Being or Random Chance. It lies somewhere in between, something most simple minded people of the either/or mentality of today have not contemplated. Anyway, that's what I think.

    The old clock argument?

    If you study the formation of galaxies, planets, and molecules, there are alternative understandings than a Goddidit interpretative attitude.

    Its not that everything works at high levels of randomness, but there are orders and laws which the universe obeys, inherent in nature. I am not aware of any left over traces of evidence, that immediately upon observation, point to the creator(s).

    If the universe was created, there is no room for it in the equations of scientists. Ever seen that comic, "equation, equation, than a miracle happened." Personally, I can not reflect on existence outside of religion and come to any decisive conclusions about the nature of a creator that would not be much different than a creator of a virtual reality. Such a specific trait of supposed creator(s) is not supposed in most religious doctrines, nor made out to be evident in the mechanics of the natural world. Only conventional theoretics gets into that.

    The fact that the Universe is so complex leads to nature. Why would God make things so complex if they could have been done much easier? Less chance of things breaking and running down. You ever hear of Keep it simple stupid? If there was a God, wouldn't things be LESS complex? Complexity points to random events.

    Those who think intelligent design is scientific should ask themselves why the leaders of the ID movement don't act like scientists? Even if mainstream secular universities were silencing scientist who possess powerful new evidence capable of sinking evolution, it doesn't explain why we do not see game-changing ideas and data emerging from religious universities. We can only conclude that ID proponents have no case to make beyond the political campaigning, lobbying and public sales pitches that we have seen.

    What if there's a choose for a place the place there is no sunlight for days? Then it became right into a quite good thought... If somebody does not like that place, bypass someplace SUNNY. will we would desire to be mild years enormous in area? No. Earth suits us completely. it rather is in straight forward terms the final suited temperature to greater healthful our human bodies. So i bypass to would desire to assert that it rather is quite clever. it rather is an extremely dumb argument. there's a reason for each thing in our intelligently-created universe. Does the universe no longer fascinate you? Do you no longer locate the sea, the mountains, or vegetation proper? some issues have been in simple terms executed for our leisure. each and every thing interior the universe works mutually, by way of fact it became into created completely by ability of a perfect being: God.

    Oddly enough, it's the people who know next to nothing about the universe that think it shows evidence of design. Scientists who spend their careers studying the universe in detail see the result of natural processes. If the universe was evidence of design, most astrophysicists would be believers. They're not. They're mostly unbelievers.

    I'm sure your pastor's claims of unbelievable design make sense to those who struggled through tenth grade science.

    What is so intelligent about designing pointy teeth and claws so that animals can eviscerate, disembowel, and eat other animals alive while they're screaming in pain? Flesh earing bacteria. birth defects. The Dodo bird. The list is endless. It sounds like brutal dumb nature doing its best to keep these carbon based life forms pooping and reproducing.

    Not true, God did design some stuff to go off at random. I think God is like a computer programmer some stuff he let go on it's own like oceans and the weather. Other things like people he likes to have his hands involved with all the time. I do think to a degree, a strong degree he did create it. I do think "Evolution" was involved to a small degree, but not as much as science and the goverment push for people to believe in it. I also think E.T.s did put the Language and mathmatics genes into people as well as various parts of our DNA to a degree too. But to assume it was all an accident, is stupid, because there is too much order in nature when you think about it. Too much organization at least. That athesist, the elite, and naive people don't see.

  • Quite easily, thank you. There is absolutely NO objective, empirical, peer reviewed evidence of an intelligent designer.

    Drop a glass on your floor. Did all the pieces land randomly? Or, were they deliberately placed in the positions where they ended up?

    Walk into a paved lot and you are likely to find a blade of grass growing out of a crack in the pavement. What is more likely? That a grass seed dropped by a bird landed in the crack purely by random chance? Or, did someone take the time to deliberately plant the grass seed in the crack?
