Whether you are a believer or not and no matter what you say or do Jesus loves you and there is nothing you can do about it!

The earths gravity holds the moon close to us, yet is not strong enough to keep it from moving slowly away. The moon is drifting a few inches away each year. Well apply that knowledge to the sun and planets.
You do not understand gravity, thus assign the properties of gravity to god, just as the ancients assigned rain to Zeus.
But I guess that example does not work on you because you think god is making the rain still.
What do you think science is anyway? Science is what God put into motion. Every area of science is by God's order. It is simply the study of all things in nature, the heavens and the earth alike. Science is man trying to understand how things came to be, not to prove there is NO GOd!!Of course God knew how to keep earth in orbit without burning up. That's why He made the force we call gravity. Heck He didn't want all His creation falling off the face of the earth. God was not just there in the beginning He is the beginning.

The credibility factor of a convert goes (even further) into the negative when they claim a right to be petty, vindictive and abusive to people who dare disagree with them, correct their factual inaccuracies or even simply hold contrasting opinions - especially on the grounds that through Christ they are a better person than they used to be. To steal a line from Q, "So they say but cannot demonstrate."
Same goes for the atheist who treats Christians like dog poop on their shoe. Live peaceably with all men. It is the better way.

Wow. God created gravity to keep the Earth from falling into the sun. You must be one of those charter members of "menza" that curious is almost as intelligent as...

Our country depends on individuals practicing their religious beliefs because we vote in our government.

Live peaceably with all men? That is GREAT! Show me a Christian leader who preaches that! Show me ANY religious leader, who follows the God of the desert, who preaches that!

Christians can't even decide on which book (Old/New Testament) to follow. Ten Commandments (OLD). Same testament that says a woman is unclean and must sacrifice animals to enter the temple if she is on her period. Leviticus. Read it. Love it.

Silly. Just wondering why the Christians don't believe in Zeus or Thor? Those are the same reasons I don't believe in you sky God.

I have a question. Where do any of you get your joy from? Not fun or hobbies or even family,(because some have none) but the thing that makes you wake up to a new day without dread of even getting out of bed. What source do you draw from for the joy of living? Has it been long since you woke up and said "I am happy, really happy to be alive"? Happy that you have a purpose for being here? Not just a job. Do you go about your day with joy in your heart or are you angry, cursing everything and everybody on the road, all that gets in your way. Does just about everything "get on your nerves"? Do you find yourself saying I hate this and I hate that? In other words miserable. Again the question, are you happy and feel the joy of living? You need not answer here, just examine yourself for the answer. Does science give anyone the joy of life?

To a point I will follow the golden rule - beyond that it will be Hammurabi's. When someone strives for ignorance, I write to them accordingly. When they are insulting, I will insult them accordingly. When they attempt to convert me to their faith, I will disabuse their illusion that I am on the market. I have read the Bible, I have been to churches, I have grappled with crises - I do not need or desire any quotes or comments from the choir. When "dog poops" acknowledge my "beliefs" as being as relevant and more rational than their own, I will be peaceful.
God does not have any grandchildren. If you don't understand that, be quiet until you do.

That is sad. Could you expound a bit on how that comes to be? Not being smart, just wondering. How science gives you personal joy in your heart and peace of mind? Do you have anything to lean on when you cannot lean on your own self? Have you been lucky enough to never have a need for help? BTW, this is a public forum that you post on. Why then tell those who comment to shut up? No discussion that way.

<quoted text>So just how could a god put these laws into motion? How can he control the rain when needed? If he can control the rain when needed and does not, then is he not held negligent for causing drought?
If a god can control the rain at a snap of his magic fingers, then he has the power to help or hurt with rain, yet it really looks like many are hurt due to a lack of rain or over abundance of rain.

So who gave god the power to put these laws in motion? Why would you not need the god to have a creator and so on?
Sorry,
I had a life altering event recently and I'm barely able to keep up with the speed of this thread. If I miss something, I apologize.

Why do you keep insisting that I don't think the creator has a creator? I'm the only one on here saying that I think He does.

And yes I think God can make it rain if He wishes.

I don't know if there is a reason for each drought, or natural disaster, I don't pretend I have that answer.

Simplified. Nothing, because space time did not yet exist for there to be a "trigger" "in."

Science allows me to have a Harley to ride around the country side, Science gives me enough food to eat... Science gives me lights and heat on these cold days and dark nights... Science allows me to have a camera to take photos of what I see.... Science lets me be healthy and allowed doctors the technology to put my body back together after War... Science allows me to explore Mars through the eyes of robots ... Science allows me to see billions of years into the Universe and see all the stars, galaxies and nebula.... Science allows me to wear shoes and cloths instead of dead animal skins and tree bark.... Science gives me glasses so the world is not a blur to my vision... Science give me music while I drive around in my science provided car.... Science lets me talk to you through Topix... Science allows me to wake up in the morning an know if I need a rain coat an Umbrella later that day.... And 1000's of other mundane, taken for granted things that allow me to live a life of Joy and Fun....

If you think that's sad then feel free to walk nakid into your nearest forest and build yourself a little camp with your hands and a sharp rock then get back to me in a few weeks and tell me how Joyful you are.....

always existed/eternal. energy cannot be created/destroyed. it simply changes form. undifferentiated matter creates differentiated matter and returns to undifferentiated matter.

energy and matter are the same thing.

e = mc2.

When did I tell anyone to shut up? I don't remember doing so... I might have, but it would have been due to prolonged idiotic postings...

<quoted text>1.. Probability... No trigger required... The Only laws that apply to a Unified Quantum of Energy without matter is Probability and Uncertainty... The Unified Quantum of Energy (UQE) had the probability of converting some, all or none of it's energy into matter, or not.. Uncertainty means that we being an intrinsic component of that conversion we can know energy state or position but never both simultaneously...

2. E=MC2 or M=E/C2... A Unified Quantum of energy can convert some, most or All of it's energy into Matter... And Matter can convert into energy... Absent Matter all physical laws and rules we use fail because all physical laws we know are based on Matter with inertial mass in relative motion to other matter with inertial mass...

3. No... During any explosive event in local areas particulate collide and may not follow ballistic trajectories but in the case of the BB it's not like a Explosion as we know it.. because the actually fabric is expanding and the (UGC) Universal Gravitational Constant reduces as the universe expands.. So Generally all matter is moving away from other matter at an ever increasing rate but Due to the gravitational effects local massive objects will move closer together and interact... All Matter is Connected to all other matter no matter the separation distance by the remainder of the UQE that did not convert into matter... and acts as a Inverse tensor between all matter causing the effect we call gravity...
Thanks for the answer.
1. I can accept your proposal here and understand why you think no being had a hand in it. I just disagree. I do not see this matter eventually gaining intelligence, no matter the time span.

2. Where did matter originally come from? In this case, there never was a beginning.

3. What gives matter a gravitational force?
