Okay. Calm down. Just quit trying to start crap. Religion shouldn't be brought up here. There's already enough drama. And I am a Christian... I just saw that on a movie and always wanted to say it to someone :)

No that couldn't be Seth. He is such a smart guy and wouldn't put dumb stuff up. I respect some of the things he has said before....

That answers the question of why you don't believe in Santa Claus and the magic man in the sky lol :)

(I don't believe in them either) lol

But i have a hard time wondering how you "believe" the world came about without some sort of intelligent design.(especially since Darwin renounced his theory of evolution...) well you gotta believe something...

1. The story that Darwin renounced his theory is nothing more than an urban myth. Charles Darwin spent his entire life promoting evolution and naturalism. In his biography (written in his later years), he fully supported evolution. A single woman claimed that he had changed his mind and converted to belief in the divine, whereas several members of his family denied it. His friends, colleagues, and writings gave no shred of proof towards his renouncing his theory. The story you've said, that has been circulated for ages, has no substantial evidence to back it. The word of one woman isn't proof enough.

Now that we've cleared that up, let's move on.

2. When science is not yet able to answer a question, groups of people will jump to the conclusion "god done it" with no evidence to back it. For instance, the god Helios' chariot was once considered the cause of the sun's rising and setting. Personally, I find this lack of critical thinking and deduction skills very upsetting. While there is no definitive answer yet to how the world came to be, there are several theories and I'm fully confident that many of these mysteries that are attributed to an almighty creator will be unraveled within my lifetime.

In the meantime, here's some light reading: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planet#Formation

You say that science has an answer for pretty much everything, but that's not necessarily true. For some things the scientists make up an answer that makes enough sense to them that they'll believe that's what happened, so they won't have to believe that God's really the one that did it because they couldn't figure it out. Not to mention the fact that so many of the things that are talked about in the Bible that happened are being proven true by today's scientists.

You base that their is a god because the bible says so or simply just because. But where is the actual evidence at? You can tell that, if you spend more then 5 minutes looking, that there is far more then enough evidence that there is no all-knowing being. Evolution solves the problem of how we were created and how other animals came to be. Besides, what has religion done for this world? It has just started wars and killed innocent people. One of the main reasons there is a war in the Middle-East is due to religions.

If you have to see something to believe it then do you believe in the wind? You can't see that. Yes, you can see the effects and results of what it can do, but you still can't see it. It's the same way with God.

Holy shit. That's one of the dumbest defenses I've heard of yet. "Can you see wind?" Hurricanes? Tornados? I guess those don't count. And what has this so called God done? If you really think he's so great then why does he create such a cruel world. Mist of it is inhabitable, since its the ocean, and this work is filled with unseen viruses and almost any animal that can will try to kill you.

God didn't create the world as a cruel place. When he made it, it was just fine an everything was perfect. He gave humans a free will to do whatever we want so that we aren't robots that do everything He tells us to. We get to chose what we do which is exactly why the world is what it is today. Because of the choices of people in the past an right now in the present.

So the world has earthquakes and other natural disasters because of our ancestors?

Why do you think isolated tribes in South America worship airplane-shaped gods? Because that's what the human mind does when something doesn't make sense. It fills in the blanks.

That's not what I said. The world doesn't have earthquakes because of the decisions people have make it the past. When I said the world is what it is I was talking about the way people are, the economy, things like that, not natural disasters.
