Without the complex nature of human brain, which is an handiwork of God the creator, there would have been no inventions like computer, the internet, world wide web, Email, etc.
If the human brain is the work of an Intelligent Designer,
then how do you account for the evidence that the reptilian brain formed first, then the paleomammalian brain, and finally the neomammalian brain?

Not even in theory that it exists? Have you given up on thinking?
In the scientific sense of the word "theory", no. If you mean the colloquial saying of "in theory", as in hypothetically speaking, then it's possible. It's just there's no way to tell until we develop a meaningful scientific definition of the term "God", and are able to test it via the scientific method using evidence.

As science is always open to new possibilities, it may be that in the future that new evidence will be discovered that may support the idea. But until that day we have nothing but sheer speculation.

2 answers:
1. We don't know if there is ANY other intelligence out there; advanced or otherwise.
2. The God/Jesus story is almost surely a fable/myth. Science is able to disprove a lot of it nowadays.
"We don't know...." Lets say we have seen things, up close. This craft was close. It put us to sleep. We woke up and it was 10ft in front of us. True story! Now we just want answers. Who or what was it. It had a light on the front. The bottom had red glowing panels 6" x2'. It crossed over our auto @2-3 mph, no sound and exited the area. Ok, we know it sounds impossible but we both was it. Who or what was it?

The Mormons say that God lives on another planet with a harem numbering in the thousands.
Maybe someday our space program will advance to the point where we can go out there and meet him.

The Urantia Book says that God sits on a throne in the center of the Universe.
Maybe someday our space program will advance to the point where we can go out there and meet him.

Maybe someday there will be revealed a scripture revealing hitherto unknown scientific facts, all of which will be verifiable and verified.

Maybe someday there will be revealed s scripture containing new insights on how its readers and adherents can become peace-loving people.

Maybe someday there will be born a true prophet whose prophesies come true and who could work paranormal feats under the most rigid controls.

So what's with the spam, nuts, and disagree judgments on The Dude's post?

Experience tells of another creation sourse. They say.......they were lied to. Religion is a bussiness..ask Joel Osteen. Listen, the Bible story and all religious beliefs were manifested by primitive human animals being controled, engineered and munipulated by advanced a;ien beings..........its hard to grasp.

This story sounds like thousands of other ones we had heard over the years. You have photos or movies maybe? Were you using??

Give your report to MUFON, see if they can help you.

Actually the denial of the existence of the Christ, was preceded by the "Jesus is gay" campaign...(along with others)well that one didn't work out so well, so the tactics where changed.
It's an ideological propaganda war to attack Christianity.
In other words it a religious war plain and simple.
Wow, you'll buy into anything that has no evidence, even conspiracy nonsense.

This is irrelevant to the validity of science and your opinions re: faith are nothing but that.
Science and technology are limited, due to the fact that, it is man made.

Jesus never said anything about self defence except maybe in Matthew 21:40 & 41 and then it was after every avenue was offered to the bad guy. The military and police force sadly in a civil society will always be required also to use deadly force at times to protect the rights of people from those who will not respect them and want to steal what is not rightly theirs.

You are reflecting, it is you who has no argument because you are making an assertion without any evidence to support it.
