Jesus died because he realized what a dump the Earth was.

Failpost.

I know your arguments will be something along the lines of "Well, how was God created? You think this because you're human... ect." but I just don't understand how everything can be created without divine intervention, and I know that the earth is small in a colossal universe and can be argued as random probability, but everything has to have some design to it. It makes more sense to say that something created everything rather than random material creating something. It makes more sense for an all powerful being to have been here first to coordinate creation rather than other material. I'm not shooting down the big bang theory or anything necessarily, it just doesn't matter as much how things came to be, creation, big bang theory and evolution, etc. just that God did it, in my opinion.

If god created the universe he would inevitably have to be more complex and less likely than the universe. By adding god to the equation you are not explaining anything you are rather making it more complicated. This is where occam's razor comes into play.

I really don't want to get in an argument, especially over the internet now because today has been such a long day, but I'd say it would be a simpler explanation that a superior being created everything. Since a deity was the first thing thought of to have created us by mankind's first civilizations rather than any scientific matter, wouldn't you think that is the simpler explanation?

LittleMexicos avatar LittleMexico Yeah You Are +1Reply
@Rene_Magritte The simplest explanation would just be that the universe has always existed.

But wouldn't it make more sense to say that something created the universe rather than it always be there? I know that would imply that an omniscient, omnipotent force was always there, but that makes more sense than a random universe.

@633456: Hallucinations brought on by a combination of pain killers and severe exhaustion. Hallucinations are mostly linked to what you were thinking of last so it makes sense that when someone who is dying who believes in god goes under that they think they go to heaven. Just because your heart stops beating doesn't mean you are dead. Your brain is still active for a few minutes.

Heaven is isn't real.

@AllanFoFallan Heaven is isn't real.

Actually, there have been cases of people dying and going to Heaven, but doctors and others brought them back to life and they came back and told everyone... There are books about it and everything. So technically, there IS proof. What's YOUR valid arguement for saying "Heaven isn't real"?

Haha it was proven? Don't make me laugh. You do not understand anything if you believe that. It cannot be proven. To be proven, it must be testable. Is it testable? No. It's a theory. It isn't even a good theory, as they don't have an explanation for how it started. A super powerful being is much more logical.
Any intelligent person would realize that nothing cannot become something, no matter how long it sits there. In the absence of everything, how could something form? Tell me. I want to know. How could something come from absolutely nothing. No air, no atoms, nothing.

I agree with you on this point, for the record, "big bang and shit like that" have not been proven, that guy was stupid for saying that.

But if you're really curious, look into string theory; string theorists don't like the idea of "something from nothing" so you may find that interesting.

Dude, you're an idiot. Religious beliefs are founded on faith, not proof. You can't "disprove" God, because he's existence isn't based on whether or not you can prove it. Does that make sense? It's fine if you don't believe in him, I don't really care, but don't demand proof for something that you cannot prove.

Theories however, ARE proof based, but religion isn't theory.

Creation is a theory. There's more evidence for God creating everything than nothing becoming something.

I guess, to make it more concise, I'm saying that Creationism is not the same as Christianity.

Creationism is for those who believe in God but require some sort of scientific evidence to believe in him, and I just believe that believing in God isn't about how much evidence you can find to support your belief, it's just how much faith you have that he existed.

I kinda understand. But really, Christianity requires belief in creationism. Which requires proof of a god, if which there is.

Creation yes. THAT's a theory, but religion isn't. He's talking about God, while creationism merely involves a 'higher being' and not necessarily the God that Christians believe in.

I know what you're saying, but this guy isn't saying Creationism is false, he's saying God doesn't exist, and I'm saying that God exists in the heart and minds of those who have faith in him, do you know what i mean?

@631576

I'll give you proof. But you just got pwned. You had to resort to demanding evidence cause your point was utterly ripped apart.

Do you agree that something cannot bring itself into existence? Something that does not exist cannot choose to be. Nothing can randomly appear without cause. Everything on this earth has a cause. Everything. People-sperm and egg. Things- manufacturing. Plants- seeds etc. This is logical and obvious.
Secondly, the universe hasn't existed forever. There is no controversy on this point. Really no need to argue about it; it is.

God had to bring the universe into existence. Or at least, something transcending time and physics, quantum mechanics, and basically the workings of our universe. In essence, God as described by the Bible.
God transcends time. He brought time into being; He was before time. We cannot comprehend this.

No, you're right. That doesn't make it true. That makes it the only explanation, which also lines up with logic and science. But if you choose to believe that nothing becomes something by means of nothing, feel free.

I'm sure that's what Jesus wanted everyone to believe.

Both arguments can never really be proven. My point, no one can know what was before, we can all speculate and do all sorts of rock dating and all that. But that doesn't prove or disprove one or the other. Personaly I believe in some sort of higher being, but I dont think that over the entire course of the bible going through time, and peoples hands, it wasn't changed once. I can't believe something came from nothing, and neither, the big bang or the God theory really tell me what was floating around before they decided to finally do something. The thing that annoys me the most about the God of the bible, why create a place to burn for Eternity because I didn't worship you. To me it makes no since that a God that loves everyone would send them to a hell. And with that, if there is a God who has a 'plan' for your life, does that mean that he picks who goes to heavan and who goes to hell? That is the biggest thing that kills me on the God thing.

Listen, the only one that could actually answer the question is John 10:30. I looked it up. That person is taking it out of context. Right before he says that he says "My Father who has given them to me is greater than all"

"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God." John 1:1
The Word is Jesus. Jesus is not the same as God. He is like God, but not the Creator.
