Still waiting for someone to tell me how something can come from nothing without God. None of you can ever answer that question because its absurd.

you are making no sense angel. Do you honestly not realize that at some point something had to have been created? An atom, a molecule, a whatever? Things don't just happen angel. You can have a room of thin air that can sit there for billions of years and nothing is ever going to come of it. Funny how you guys can't grasp this.

We agree it is absurd. Maybe you should answer it, since you are the only one who has posed it?

Since the claim "something came from nothing" is a creationist claim attributed to science in order to cast science in a negative light... of course it absurd.

Since, to you, lying is only a sin when done by those that don't follow your particular beliefs... I doubt few here really expect anything more.

"Since the claim "something came from nothing" is a creationist claim attributed to science in order to cast science in a negative light... of course it absurd." Tl

Why?
Because it does not fall into your philosophy?

Offer a better description of how materialism does not deal with this theory?

the simplest way I can explain it to you would be the conservation of mass which states that matter can be changed from one for into another but never destroyed or created.As far as we know, mass cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change form. Matter can become energy, and energy can become matter, but always according to e=m2. So, when a matter-antimatter reaction occurs, the mass of the matter (and antimatter) is converted to energy of equal mass, which propogates outward in verious forms (heat, light, a kinetic shockwave, sound waves, etc), and gets spread out thinner and thinner throughout the cosmos, but never looses anything in quantity. If you ever found a way to capture all the energy that was released in the reaction, and condense it back together into matter, you would have the same amount of mass as the original amount of material used.

In this intsance what you would call "creation" science would call matter changing from one form to another.

How do these occur? What some might call the hand of God speaking " let there be sky or stars or a moon" is a little more complicated than just speaking it into existance.

Intermolecular attractions are attractions between one molecule and a neighbouring molecule. The forces of attraction which hold an individual molecule together (for example, the covalent bonds) are known as intramolecular attractions. these attractions are how stars are formed. This is how planets are formed and this is how the universe works.

I guess you just are never going to understand that molecules had to have had been created just like anything. Its a question none of you have ever answered and can't answer yet you continue with your nonsense belief system. Atheism, evolution, etc.are powerful tools satan has used to deceive millions.

Molecules are formed by atoms.Electrons form pairs at the lowest energy level first and work their way outward. An atom with unpaired electrons in the outermost energy level attracts other atoms with unpaired electrons to obtain its full complement of electrons. Unpaired electrons in the highest energy level are called valence electrons; when the valence electrons from two or more atoms form pairs, they are not lost from one atom and gained by another. The atoms share their valence electrons and bond together, forming a molecule.

This is valuable information that some of us have spent large amounts of money and a great deal of our time in order to learn it. Yet, I am giving it to you for free because i feel education is the key to understanding.I hope you benifit from it.

Alas, your most interesting post is entirely too "sciency" for the likes of antiatheist.

I agree with you, though-- education is the key to understanding the universe.

What's better is that no matter how hard these god-robots try, they cannot argue with **success**.

Literally-- they cannot-- because the very engine they use *to* argue with? Is proof of the success of a scientific approach: the computers that run the Internets. The very computer they compose their "arguments" on, in fact.

Are proof of the success of education and science.

It's most ironic, really.

You'd probably sound more intelligent if your were drunken.
Join a Lutheran or Episcopal church and drink the communion
wine. Then repeat what you have posted. You'll have
speaking in tongues down pat.

Have you tried standup comedy ?

Angel you are either too brainwashed or just willingly ignorant. Do you not understand that these atoms had to have been created? You go back far enough and at some point there was creation.
