Even if we pretend you are correct for a moment (for the sake of argument) it still has no relevance to the existence of an invisible magic Jew wizard or lack of same. It is in fact TOTALLY irrelevant to this thread.

So why do you hate kittens?

If this "creator" that you alledge does not need a creator then the Universe has always existed and does not need one either.
From my understanding there was a beginning and eveything began very little then branched out to become great like a great tree.

What is important about the Bible is that it is so full of errors that it can not be trusted on any subject.
That is true, something which has been known by Biblical scholars for centuries. This even includes Priests who subjected the Bible to Higher Criticism in the 16 & 1700's.

Some parts it gets correct, such as the existence of Herod. Others it gets plain wrong, such as flat Earth and global flood. While much of the rest cannot be verified either way, including Herod's order to wipe out all the babies, and pretty much all the magic bits.

if we look at spiral galixies and tree branches we can see a common pattern. a pattern appears through out the cosmos. Systems exhibit a number pattern 0,1.1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55 and so on where each number is the sum of the two numbers that precede it and this denotes one design throughout the universe and on Earth and a single designer.

Mountains in the Bible are referring to Nations. Removing a Nation, is like changing the leadership.

Something can not come from nothing. Something has always existed and for some reason we can not understand went through a phase transistion about 13.5 billion years ago. The fact that we find ourselves alive on the surface of the planet earth, from having arisen in this biosphere is proof that we are part of the Universe and that we conform to all laws just like the planets, moons, galaxies and solar systems.

The real adventure, the final frontier, is when you look inside yourself and verify what it is that you are, how you operate etc. Unfortunately you already believe you know all of this and therefore have no intersted in exploring your own personal psychological evolution.

The real problem with human beings is that they believe just any old tale told to them.

Verify this.

And what, we are just supposed to believe you?

Who appointed you to tell us God didn't say what he meant? If nations was meant then it would not say mountains. It says mountains, can you read?

how does that denote a single designer or any designer at all?

seems you are just projecting your wishes upon what you see.

No one cares what makes you sick. You do NOT tell the truth, you repeat hearsay, do you know what that means? It means your mamma and your pappa told you lies and you were so stupid that you believed them and now you repeat those lies and get offended when intelligent beings capable of using logic and reason do not believe you. There is no reason to believe a word out of your mouth.

Humanity is as much a part of the Universe as is everything in the Universe. This does not mean there is a magical sky being who brought it all into existence.

JESUS: John 14:12, KJV Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father."

Please tell us of something you have done that is a greater 'work' than all that Jesus did.

Actually whether or not something always existed is something science is still debating on. One hypothesis is that energy is eternal and has always existed in one form or another, one of those forms being our universe. Another is that our universe is part of a much larger multiverse and ours sprung off from that. Another is that our universe itself was uncaused. Though counter-intuitive it does have scientific basis as uncaused quantum events have been observed. Examples include radioactive decay and the spontaneous appearance of particle-antiparticle pairs in a vacuum. Our universe *might* have been the result of a runaway quantum fluctuation.
