learning is fun!
What are the many things you surmised when YOU looked through a telescope?

again, you would not look so foolish if you had even the tiniest inkling of what you are talking about...

There's no such thing as god. You can create as many "what if" scenarios as you like, but its not going to make a god magically become real.
Without any evidence to support the idea that there is "no such thing as god, you believe it. Tsk. Tsk. Not very scientific of you.

What's in a basic science book that you can use to prove there is no God?

How do rocks describe this unidentified SOMETHING that suddenly expanded?

Exactly, but you are willing to believe what science tells you without having seen the evidence yourself that you claim is visible through telescopes.

Again you are mixing two very different fields of science. even my grandson knows the difference and he isn't in the first grade yet.

Actually , most of it isn't visible. do you even understand how most modern telescopes work? it would seem not.

the real astronomers publish their findings for the world to read,(the educated world, apparantly you are not part of that...)

ao yes, i have seen the evidence that they gathered with their telescopes.

If you can't identify, or describe the SOMETHING that formed the universe, then you can't explain how evolution began.

And if these REAL astronomers told you that they suspected that this SOMETHING that suddenly expanded was GOd, would you believe it?

your just not understanding. evolution has nothing to do with the universe at all...it has to do with how species changed on our planet.

if there was some credible, verifiable evidence to support such a theroy, i would look at it objectively, as I do all things.

But all evidence that comes from science is verifiable is it not?

Because science can't explain what "caused" that SOMETHING to expand and form the universe. It can't explain what caused evolution to began. The two are intricately related.

Who are you to say what science can and can't explain? You are scientifically illiterate, not even believing in evolution - a proven fact just like gravity.

It's better you just f*ck off back to your failed cult instead of spreading your ignorance here.

No, witness the faster than light neutrino incident of this last year.

this is why it has to be verifiable, reproduceable and peer re-viewed.
