Seeing design in nature involves confusing the direction of causality. Humans are the product of a long evolutionary process that has adapted us to the environments where we live. That our surroundings seem well suited to us (to the extent that they are) is not surprising, but is not evidence that it was designed for our benefit; rather it is a testament to the power of evolution to produce well-adapted organisms.

Continuing in the evolutionary vein, one of the beneficial adaptations of humans is the ability to infer intent. This allows us to anticipate behavior on the part of other organisms that might be detrimental (or beneficial) to our survival. However, this ability can be overgeneralized; we can see intent and purpose where there is none. Seeing design in nature is an example, since the religious view is usually that the universe was designed for our benefit.

My question to you is how do you think the universe was created? What was around before the universe or has it always been here? I would like a serious answer about what you believe.

Here it is, are you ready?

I don't know.

However, claiming that a god created it makes as much sense as saying a rainbow colored flaming unicorn farted it into existence. Why? Because there is not any evidence for either claim.

I don't deal in absolutes, as you do. My mind is open to evaluate and understand evidence. If it is ever empirically proven that a god or supernatural being existed and created this world I can accept that. You on the other hand reject the evidence that is provided for our existence and believe a fairy tale.

I do a lot of research, in fact I am putting together a whole book of scientific evidence that God exists. Take the Bible for instance, I believe it is very reliable because of all the fullfilled prophecies, its internal harmony, and more than 25000 archaeological discoveries. So I guess you would consider yourself an agnostic am I right? Laminin which is a cell adhesive molecule is shaped like a cross, I don't think that is a coincidence. The M51 whirlpool galaxy has a cross in the center of it. And it goes on and on and on.

Hi, I have been though a lot in my life, and my family just can not believe that I made it through.(my Uncle says that I am too hard-headed to die.) LOL Yes, doctors did help, but what about after I left the hospital and still had to go through some medical issues. There's nothing bad about believing in God. So what that some people don't believe. They'll just find out the truth when they die. Those preachers that have done "bad" things. Well, they should not have been preachers in the first place. May be I'm not a good Christian because I would not return to those churches.

I don't think there is any Biblical bases for your statement. Christ promised.that God would provide for our needs but said nothing about prosperity. I am a Christian and I don't believe in prosperity theology. I do believe in tithing but it must be from the heart with no expectations in return.
I just think your giving the guy a hole to shoot through.

Wow! You need to read science books not apologist websites like answersingenesis.com
I want a list of your sources for the "25,000 prophecies"
2 examples of where two lines intersect each other, one in the body and one in space, is hardly evidence. But I guess when the odds are stacked against you you'll grasp for anything that you can stretch to make you feel better.
I'm an atheist, I reject your claim of a supernatural sky daddy. I reject it based on lack of evidence. The "I don't know" is for the beginning of universe.
So this bible that is so reliable tells you to stone your daughter if she is not a "virgin" (broken hymen) on her wedding day, should we start doing that? Should we stone those that work on Sunday, or wear clothing of mixed materials, or children who disobey their parents, or eat pork or shellfish?
If you write this book then have it peer reviewed and win your Noble prize, that would be something. Otherwise it's just another apologist pile of lies.

Religion is, by very definition, supernatural. For it to be true it has to exist outside of our natural order.

Science deals with the natural order - repeatable results in controlled environments.

You cannot combine the two without being intellectually dishonest.
