bob I'm still waiting for you or anyone else to tell me how life sprang up from absolutely nothing without any intelligence behind it. Can you explain it? Of course you can't.
So what?

You-- invoking your Magic JuJu Beast (god) is **NOT** an answer to the question!

In fact? Scientific experiments have long since proven that complex proteins SELF-ASSEMBLE, with **no** need for magical intervention (god).

Life is just the end of a long chain of self-assembling molecules.

Which **IS** an explanation **NOT** involving a Magical JuJu Beast (god).

No need--- they create themselves, stupid.

If you put the basic chemicals into the proper water solution? They assembly themselves.

This has long since been demonstrated.

Are you seriously this stupid? Or did you take special stupid-lessons?

Bob your communicating with an ignorant person. I stopped do to the fact that he/she is a total troll with no understanding of life or reasoning. This person believes that everything just popped into existence from out of nothing. Little does he/she understand that the space we inhabit is beyond any knowing of where and/or how long it has been. Space by any understanding is way beyond comprehension. The understanding of infinity squared a trillion times before the existence of our own universe. That is one of the reasons where we and/or the universe started has never held any interest to m, hell for all we know it has always existed, but just been recycled over and over again.

He/she is looking for an answer that is not there, but I cannot except that we came from out of nothing but the mind of an invisible deity that cannot be seen, heard, touched, or felt. That is the true meaning of we came out of nothingness.

oh cynical...you are pretty funny. I'm sure you realize that YOU are the one saying we popped up out of nothing. That is impossible right? How can you be an intelligent person and believe that? If you are so sure in your atheist believe system then surely you can explain how life began. All of the sudden...out of total blackness.......something just popped up? Surely you are smart enough to know that couldn't happen without some sort of intelligence behind it. You realize how dumb you sound?

What makes you think that have enough education to make a valid comment on any science topic.

This post of yours demonstrates you have ZERO education in the sciences.

richard.......please answer the question...if you can. How did the universe begin? How did the first molecue, atom, etc come about? How could these things just suddenly appear? I'll be waiting for an answer

So is it your reasoning that nothing ever existed no space, no time, nothing ever existed before your god? If so what was there before your god? What is the nothingness that existed before your nothingness? What produce your god? If you can answer all the questions then I will take all your thoughts and arguments to heart, but if all you can do is state that your god did it then you have no grounds to stand on. If you cannot answer them then it is your claim that we came from out of nothingness.

you mean you can only answer my question with a question? I thought for sure you could at least come up with something. Do I need to pose the questions to you again? Ok......now try again. Think real hard this time. Better yet, go to some of your websites and maybe you can parrot what is said on there. At least come up with something in your defense.

Oh, how you **stupid** people love to lie.

Is that what I said? Nope. I **said** that putting the basic chemicals together in a solution of liquid water, and they will self-assemble.

Nothing about magic "pop into existence".

I leave the MAGIC to you IDIOTS who claim **poof** your magic JuJu Beast (god) MAGICKED UP THE WORLD.

From nothing.

What a moronic idea!

ha.........how typical. None of you atheists can put anything into a clear sentence. You only refer people to websites that you haven't even read yourself. Are you not capable of answering a simple question richard? I have given you multiple opportunities and yet you still can't seem to do it. How did life arise from nothingness? Its not possible without intelligence behind it. You honestly think something came from nothing? You really think we evolved all these years into what we have today? You think all the planets just happened to fall into place and that the earth just happened to be the exact distance from the sun that would allow life? You really think all this just happened? Those odds must make the lottery seem like a sure deal.

I was clear enough. I'm so very sorry you are too stupid to understand even **simple** English.

Pity you.

If you would ask a VALID question? Maybe someone would bother an answer-- but you don't as questions you want an actual ANSWER to.

Do you?

No.. you are just playing the godbot-game, here.

What a moron you are.

And yes-- that's an opinion of YOUR BEHAVIOR.

You obviously did not even bother going to the site because it is links to pdfs of real textbooks written by real scientists not a bunch of 2000 year old myths .

Your basic problem is you have zero education in or understanding of any branch of science nor do you even desire to improve yourself.

You seem to think that complex questions can be answered in 25 words or less.

oh I went to the website. Surely you don't expect me to go through all those pages written by atheist scientists. There are also scientists who are Christians not to mention more than 3/4 of the world believes in God. Every president we have had believed in God. You honestly think all those people are delusional????? Surely there has to come a point where you look in the mirror and say you must be insane. Have you had that moment yet? Obviously not.

I think I answered it perfectly...Your belief is that "god" popped everything into existence. Science never claimed that... so what's the problem here?
