<quoted text> And yet Science can not answer the entire question facing humans and the universe.
Science does not have any evidence disproving the Creator( God).
Why would science need to disprove something that has never been proven?

That's like saying: science does not have any evidence disproving the flying spaghetti monster, therefore it exists.

The right answer is that we don't know, and it's most likely impossible for us to ever know. For this reason, it doesn't deserve the attention that so many people are giving it even in today's world.

Religion is a consequence of this unfounded belief, and while it may be bring some good to the world, it's also generating a whole lot of unnecessary bad.

Anyways, why does it matter so much how we were created? To bring meaning to ours lives? Come on, let's face it: it's not like it's going to change anything to YOUR life.

Charles, I think God is finally going to be disproven by circumstantial evidence.
See my post immediately below yours.
Funny indeed!
We have heard that before now but the questions keep coming that you or any one else can not answer.

Sorry, can't help it...but you killed him. Afterall that is what the entire goodnews is about. Hurray we killed god, long live the new god.
If he did not die there would be no point to the story.
(Just like Baal coming back to life after -not entirely - three days and nights.)
So where does god create the universe, even in your translation?
A lot has allready been stated about evidence (elephant in my room. yes/no)but the point is that science is not in the business of doing that.
Maybe like me, you should just read back.
The entire thread started with asking a testable consistent theory of creation. Sofar zilch.
And one point (of many) would be delivering positive proof of gods instrumentality. Not magic or vague bible texts but hard evidence.
So the onus lies still with creationists.
Dreaming!
When you stop dreaming let me know.

Ok, may be you have the answer.

And that either does' nt change the evidence and existence of God.

Your first paragraph has disqualified your entire post.
We are living in a universe not known completely by science, yes or no?

Well with you we're in a nightmare of cross-purpose discussion.

Did jesus have to die?
Do you insist god as man was thus killed for you?(i don't, no proof whatsoever and it's not logical as others have pointed out too)
Did he become a god?
etc.
The whole list up and including how this thread started is all about what you can dream.
So if that equals dreaming, you should do more of it.

Sofar your score-card shows up empty.
At least science has something to show.

So who said that you have to stop questioning?

Random Guy has a very good point; why indeed would we have to disprove a God that has never been proven to exist. Can you answer that question??

We don't yet know all the answers, but we keep working on sciences in general and every now and then some of the science impinges on the Bible and religion.

Just like the sciences of archaeology, geology, paleoanthropology, and DNA has disproven the Adam and Eve myth and the 'Flood' and the Exodus and a few other things in your favorite book.
(Probably left out some contributing sciences there....sorry)

The myths of the Bible are slowly being PROVEN wrong. You cannot disprove the science, but we can disprove the Bible....where does this leave your God if we disprove all around him and there are no more supporting 'true' stories??

By the way Charles you never did answer the question I ask of you a few days ago....why do you come to this forum??

Some say the 'Big Bang', but I say....We really don't know yet and we may never know. However science will continue to work on the problem.

I do know this....the answer will NOT be the God that all Christians profess to know. He (as the Christians have portrayed Him) is evil and slightly crazy, which when you think about it describes a lot of humans..:-)

Charles, just think about it, the precursors to DNA and RNA have now been found in interstellar space.

We now have the chemistry, water, and oxygen all over the universe. We're finding planets through-out our galaxy....which undoubtedly means that all the 250 Billion other known galaxies will have planets and all the ingredients for life just floating around in space where they are.

I personally think life is everywhere in the universe....and we are NOT special at all.

Right from the existence of mankind, they have been saying more of what you have to offer but today, they are dead, buried and forgotten. No one can fight the Almighty.
