A question no one has ever correctly and truthfully answered.
The universe is proof neither of the existence of a god nor of the absence of one. Science neither proves nor disproves. There is an underlying order to the universe. How it got that way... who knows?

What you are speaking of there is but your personal philosophy... not anything based on reality.

Can you define evil outside of the religious context?

So because someone who is not a scientist in a field that focuses on evolutionary biology cannot answer your specific question that was worded in a dishonest manner, you claim that discredits the entire theory?
What did Adam look like?
If you cannot answer it with solid and testable evidence your entire bible is false, all of it, even the people, places, and things.
Lol
This is indeed a frustrated answer.
Tell that to over 100 million christians world wide, who are either scientist, researchers, archaeologist, biologist, teachers, academicians and what have you.
Just grow up, Kodder.

Better to think like a Republican. Cut taxes, do not cut spending and borrow from obviously trustworthy people like the Saudi monarchy and communist China to keep up interest payments on the bloated national debt.

Soul is a priori that cannot be proved because it's immaterial. But evil can be observed.
I would interpret the soul as the consciousness. It is a real thing. Evil on the other hand is but a philosophical construct. It has no fixed meaning.

If you read the Old Testament even genocide is not evil... when God himself commands his chosen people to wipe out an entire nation.

Earth was indeed created at the birth of the universe. Humans are utilizing primitive knowledge and theories to analyze and decode the universe. Humans must use the proper technology for the job at hand. Don't try to contact an advanced civilization with human technology....wont work. At the current rate of human advancements in technology, humans will never make contact.

It was already explained to you. Humans being an outcome of evolution has already happened. It is highly unlikely any other species will evolve into the same thing.
Not really sure why I'm bothering trying to explain this to you, it's kinda like trying to explain rocket science to a gerbil.

It's Greek. The Greeks own it. They said it first!
Kidding, are you?
You are now accepts that the English owns the English language, from your premise.
Come out from your shell, Buddy.
No valid answer from you or any one on non human to human evolution. Period!

no, the universe is in no way proof of god's existence. not in any way.

there have been several hominid species. you actually have the DNA of Neandertals, another species, in you.
The same refuted garbage, chromosome 2!
Now Buddy, this so called neanderthal stuff, how valid is it?
Evolutionist can never use any means, to cover or blackmail the credit of the almighty God.

For one, because the term "human" already applies to a specific species.
Humans are created by God, likewise other living things. Evolution is a farce in this regard.

The birth of the universe is the big bang. That is true whether it is the work of a creator or not.

if the Earth was created at the birth of the universe, then why are there more advanced civilizations than us? they had to be created at the same time. did your mythical god favor them over us and they thus advanced quicker?

logic is fun!
