Creation of life on earth now is brought about by systems that are patterned which follow outlined pathways and these are cyclic in nature.

If religion says it's a sin, science says it's a disease, and art says it's talent, then what is it?

I'm sure he thought along the same lines as Einstein, when it came to the concept of God... incomprehensible.

That deep emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.

A pattern by its very nature is a design and an intended template or scheme. The pattern or motif in natural systems could also be a plan or purpose for specific project. Life is brought about by a system which makes a copy or close duplicate anew by the reproductive propagation of past patterns.

I heard Darwin had a woman read from the bible outside his window in his final days.
Why would he have done that?
Did he really believe what he convinced so many others to believe?
Thats only rumor.

"Why would he have done that?..."

Comfort in pain and uncertainty.

I don't doubt that he would want something to be read that comforted him in his final days.

My dad wanted to be read the bible.

I would have read him anything he wanted, keates, yates, anything he wante.

He wanted the bible, psalm 19 was his favorite.

But in the end it was just having family closeby that mattered.

As far as WHAT Darwin believed when he was on his deathbed, it doesn't really matter, he was just a man looking for comfort in his final days, and was blessed to find people who cared for him.

The Observer Effect(quantum physics)... basically implies that the Universe could not have come into existence with out an Observer being present.

If this indeed be the case...then where is the Observer now?

Yeah, being an inventor makes him an authority on God. I've heard that logic before. Sounds fundamentalist to me.
Well, Edison's efforts are verifiable and repeatable.

How's your deity doing on those?

Even stones are examples of patterns and the agate stone is an aesthetic pattern of crystal cells which impose a recognition of a motif like art in many of the stones that can be seen by most who study them. The design is there to behold.
Still waiting for evidence to suggest that they are "directed" by anything beyond the physical and natural laws of the universe, as outlined and predicted by scientific inquiry.

Again though, anthropomorphizing is a very well understood act of the mind. You will see a pattern even where there is none, and the pattern will always look like what you imagine it to.

There have been a few of these lies throughout the years. We KNOW them to be liars for Jesus and ignore them. His wife was at his bedside and wrote about how he died.

No, we have quotes from Edison...he was a total atheists, unlike Einstein who was a deist or mild agnostic. Look him up and read about him.

I highly doubt it...

It's a scarey moment when you got to die alone...it's a very lonely moment...

And instictively he was probablly seeking out love and assurance from a higher 'being'...a supernatural entity, that was offering it to him...

It also amazes me how some souls don't think it possible for 'god' to be here, but yet they're here...conscious and aware, and able to create...

But yet trillions of years before their existance...this could not have ever occured before...

How one could be so close minded, just to prooves ones disdain for Christanity, is beyond me...
