If God doesn't care if people believe he made the dirt, why do you care so much. God can tell people he made the dirt if he really wanted to.

The Romans may have crucified Him, but only did so at the screaming and demands of the Jews. That's why the WholeWideWorld hates Jews ever since. No denying that one.

The charge that the Jews crucified Jesus is an act of Antisemitism without any reason at all. "Unless proved otherwise?" you say. All right, I am going to prove to you with proofs that you are supposed to believe because it is in your own NT. I am going to prove that the Jewish authorities, and believe it or not, the Pharisees themsesves tried to save Jesus from the cross, contrary to Christian opinions. Take a look at Luke 10:38-40. When Jesus was entering into Jerusalem on a donkey, his disciples were acclaiming him king of the Jews. Jeruslaem was a Roman province at the time and, imagine locals acclaiming a native king where Caesar was the Emperor? The Pharisees approached Jesus and asked him: Rabbi, rebuke your disciples so they stop endangering yourself into being arrested and condemned to the cross! Jesus answered and said that if they stopped, the stones would cry. Well, at least, the Pharisees tried. Why then, the writers of the gospels and all Christians today insist on blaming the Jewish authorities and not Jesus' own disciples? Because, IMHO, Antisemitism fits more their nature. If indeed "Unless proved otherwise," how is it now?

The idea that the universe was designed to accommodate mankind appears in theologies and mythologies dating from thousands of years ago. In Western culture the Old Testament contains the idea of providential design, but the traditional Christian viewpoint was also greatly influenced by Aristotle, who believed "in an intelligent natural world that functions according to some deliberate design."

That is not the answer of modern science. As recent advances in cosmology suggest, the laws of gravity and quantum theory allow universes to appear spontaneously from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist. It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going.

.....Jesus put 'NO' stock in the Pharisees.

"Be not like the Pharisees, those hypocrites" when preaching to HIS desciples.

...He also gave them a good lambasting when He got anrgy inside and outside the Temple.

Ps:.....The Romans, on hearing that there was a person making the rounds being called the Son of God, became suspicious as Caesar Agustus wa GOD and no other God came before him. As such, an 'eye' was kept on Jesus (call it something like J.Edgar Hoover's FBI....looking at JfK....while at the same time..Hoover was a transvestite)....in order to monitor HIM and keep tabs on his whereAbouts and what HE was up to.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the size of the congregations in the Temples began to dwindle ans as such, of course, the amount of monies going into the coffers also went down. Big Time.

The Jews didn't like that tooooooo much, and began to scheme and plan on a way to rid themselves of this Jesus. After all, didn't HE claim that he was the Son of God!!!!!Hasen't he blasphemec!!!
Shouldn't he be put to death!!!!

And so on it went, until the Great Plan included having One of Jesus' desciples 'sellOut' his Masster for some handful of silver coins. The chase was on for the Jews. They picked'EM up, took HIM before the High Priest who knew that he was 'Under' the Roman ruler 'Pilate' and referred HIM over to Pilate. Pilate, saw NO crime in THE MAN and sent HIM back to the High Priest of the Jews who in turn (being a coward) again sent HIM back to Pilate. Finally, the multitudes in the square, who were being paid by the Jews..(things are still the same today) to chant 'Death to HIM, crucify HIM'....got their way and the 'rest is history'.

The Jews were the instigators of killing Jesus Christ.

The Romans actually carried out the physically killing of Jesus Christ.

...but HE arose on the Third Day....and the WholeWideworld has Never been the same ever since.

End.

.....Stephen Hawking, by his own admission, is mostly guessing.

Ps:....and one ding fer sure, Hawking is NOT the smartest human who ever lived.

....He may fall within a list of 100+, but NOT da smartest.

Ask Hawking what he knows about da Boson principle. He, also like Einstein 'didn't' bother to think that the Universe could possibly be 'still' expanding'. It was Hubbell that found that out.

guess or not, it makes more sense than "an omnipotent being willed the universe into existence to temporarily house humanity while judging them"

Liar with no proof of god. Study some astrophysics and maybe you won't have to ask random strangers on the internet how the universe came to be..
