animals have well established natural design.
mankind have intelligent design
gods have miraculous design
so what shall we talk about

natural design comprises as far as i am concerned
the animal kingdom period.
if adam created the apple then let there bet light on the subject.
if not so what.
but when were are talking about natural design
we must be precisely aware that there are certain natural laws
as i set out in the search for string theory ten years ago.
every inch of science has to be rediscovered
if it is to harmonise together homogeneously
to form an coherent science.
natural selection is just a starting point in
the investigation of the natural laws which govern
the animal kingdoms of our planet.
so the hunt for the true natural laws of biology
is well and truly on.
why is the cheetah the fastest land animal on Earth.
what makes the Giraffe the tallest.
we need to know why some animals out live man
and the biological reasons why some animals don't.
quantum mechanics was heralded as a triumph of the
Twentieth century i have my reservations about that.
for example most of science has excepted the genetic principle
that Gene control impulse and response
which are the primary motors which govern behaviour.
if there was a break through in science of a Twentieth first century
ruling out categorically and systematically this Gene principle
then i would see biology remaining interested in
the molecular physics of quantum mechanics if not
if the principe remains most of the theoretical sided biological studies
that are planned for this century won't happen.
i would even go further than this and explain that quantum mechanics
would be side lied in the race to discover these natural laws
which govern behaviour in animals.

i believe that god is still around to those that matter to him
most people are dead to him
yes or course
this logic can indeed be reversed also
god is dead to most of creation.

Yes, you believe but do not know, thus, your god is a myth.

See? That was easy.

What was bigoted about that?

Is it OK for you to say there is a god?

If not, what makes it wrong for anyone else to say there isn't?

As i said keep opinions to self and stop attacking people who do believe and disrespecting their right to believe.
Its disrespectful.
They can say what they like just not in fashion like they are gospel and know its fact.
Prove its fact there is no God?

There is no christian god because Christians say god created the universe.

If he created the universe then ha can't be part of the universe.

That was easy, wasn't it?

God help you lol
I believe what i know to be true in heart and soul and in everyday life.
I really dont care how you try to again preach your shite at me.As you are worse than those Mormons and Jehovah on street preaching.You are just a hypocrite.
Where did the universe come from? Where does it end,whats after that?
What created that and why? You will never know or maybe you will when you die.And if you dont know and there is nothing no one will know and whats your point in complaining and trying to say there is nothing as in the long run.One of us is right one is wrong.But if you are right you will never know i will never know,If i am right you will know in your last breath. lol
good luck.

While believers can and do say there is a God like it's gospel and a fact.

QED.

So it's worthwhile remembering that this is a public forum where people can pretty much express what they want.

Can't. Just like no-one can prove there's no Flying Spaghetti Monster or Invisible Pink Unicorn. Hence the concept is non-verifiable and non-scientific.

However that does not preclude (a) God being a part of a multiverse, which is essentially what the Abrahamic scenario proposes (though fundies may not recognise it as such). Problem is we don't currently have access to any such multiverse, if it even exists. Hence the concept is non-verifiable and non-scientific.
