It sounds insane to say a man in the sky created everything, but it also sounds insane to say nothing exploded into everything and some of it became life. We should just all accept that there's no reasonable explanation for how everything came to be and let people fill in the details however they want, amirite?

The voters have decided that justfuckmeup is wrong! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

Hit the no way button due to false assumption, or at least for the most part. Pretty much no one actually believes "nothing exploded into everything" and then "some of it became life". This is merely a projection that remains prevalent due to the large amount of people presumptuous of a naturalistic position.

@Unicorns I agree, the point I was trying to make was that people should stop arguing about the origin of the universe because there's no way we can know for sure what actually happened, and it's sort of pointless to fight about.

I so understand your frustration with it, I mean I wish it was that simple too. The sad reality is it is not :/

Why should we just "accept that there is no reasonable explanation"? Is that really the kind of world you want to live in? Yeah it's way easier but where is the progression? With this thought process, humanity would be stuck in its ways for eternity. Finding out the origins of the universe isn't simple but that doesn't mean that they shouldn't be pursued.

As I said before, my point was that we're never going to agree because there's no way we can know for sure. My point was that everybody should stop fighting about it and learn to accept others' beliefs.

I agree, the point I was trying to make was that people should stop arguing about it (although, like you said, some debating is healthy) because there's no way we can know for sure.

The point of this post was to say that everyone should start arguing about religion and evolution vs. creation and all that because no one's going to agree anyways.

Yes, that's exactly what I was going for, but I guess it wasn't coming across.
And I'm the OP by the way.

Perhaps, but my reason for a "No" was because you seem to be saying there's obviously no explanation so we should give up. The fact is, there IS a reasonable explanation, but we just don't know what it is yet. The OP should say something about how people should not be so absolute in their conviction either way, and all must accept that no answer is right yet. Perhaps that's what you were going for?

Yes I know, i meant OP as original post rather than poster. Never mind. I've had posts get totally misunderstood before too. It happens. It's hard to get the right tone across sometimes, and others, we might miss out a key word which we only think to add later which could swing the entire thing. haha

There's is a reasonable explanation for how everything came to be, we just have to find it. People are limited for the time being. There will come a time when we truly do know.

So in essence what you're saying is that it doesn't matter what you believe as long as you are sincere? To quote Dr Michael Green: Hitler was undoubtedly sincere in his hatred of the Jewish people [...] but terribly wrong.

As I said above, what I'm saying is that people should let others believe what they want to believe without trying to change them or shove other beliefs down their throats.

Obviously it's different if your religion is actually harming other people, but for now, why can't we just let people have their own beliefs without bothering them about it?

So if I believe in a religion that tells me to murder everyone you shouldn't try change my belief?

In a social setting, sure. In a educational setting? Definitely not.

I don't think that it was ever "nothing", it was just a point with an extremely high density containing everything in the universe. And an experiment was done in which a closed system contained precisely the right conditions for life and some amino acids were developed as a result.

I know it sounds crazy, but scientific experiments have shown that matter does pop out of nothing. What happens though is that a same amount of anti-matter pops out with it, and almost instantly they hit each other and cancel each other out. However, a tiny percent of matter pops out of nothing without any anti-matter to cancel it out, and that tiny percent is what makes up out huge and ever expanding universe. Crazy, isn't it?
