Surely, God exists in one's faith and also rationally. Faith does not need any explanation. One just believes that there happen to be one God whilst rationality, in this case, depends on one's understanding, on one's feelings derived from actions, practiced as prescribed by holy Books. As one's nearness to any heat source makes one feel the heat, one's nearness to God (through one's actions) can lead one to understand and feel the presence of God and can even let one have answers from God, by spiritual means, to one's numerous questions. Likewise, one's avoiding the actions, leads one to move away from the understanding and feelings of the presence of God.

There are newly formed stars visible from earth. Stars and planets are always being born and some exploding and dying. Its like a living creature. So NO, DWB, everything was not formed at one time.
1. I'm not DWB.

2. I didn't imply that everything was formed at one time (hence the "9 billion years after the Big Bang" remark)

I never Implied that everything was formed at one time, In fact it was w/out form.
In The Beginning is a reference point as to the " beginning " That doesn't imply everything at once.

Yes, it did, cause it was from a totally different time frame. They weren't preaching politics and trying to take over the world then. No "wealth" preachers. They were a lot more sincere in those days.
I could easily believe that.

With the Religious "Right" of America today, not many of them would follow "Thus sayeth the Lord". It's more like "thus said Jerry Falwell".

It aint necessarily so wrote:
<quoted text>

Did some Christians help? Yes, but they were guided by the principles of rational ethics, a secular innovation that has left your fossilized bible and its primitive, paternalistic, authoritarian values in the dust.
From the time of the founding to the early 1960s, roughly 180 years, America had religious displays on public property, congressionally-designated religious services, religious holidays, government-funded chaplains, and prayer in public schools.

In a unanimous ruling in 1892, the Supreme Court declared that if one takes “a view of American life as expressed by its laws, its business, its customs, and its society, we find everywhere a clear recognition of the same truth…that this is a Christian nation.”

Virtually all of the actions that secular liberals claim are forbidden by the establishment clause of the First Amendment were permitted for the majority of years of American history since the Constitution was ratified.

Secularists find themselves in the peculiar and indefensible position of claiming that the religion clauses of the Constitution were misunderstood by the founders who wrote them, the early Supreme Courts, and by everyone else for 180 years, until finally they were accurately comprehended by the secularists as "secular innovations".

Breathtaking hubris.

How do you 'Deal' with your own sexual desire?(personal sorry).

If you want to know why a gay person would want to be a Christian, you will have to ask a gay person wants to be a Christian that question.

Let's further explore your thesis.
Michael Faraday received little formal education, yet he was one of the most influential scientists in history.
He established the basis for the electromagnetic field in physics.
Faraday established that magnetism could affect rays of light and that there was an underlying relationship between the two phenomena.
He discovered the principle of electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism, and the laws of electrolysis. His inventions of electromagnetic rotary devices formed the foundation of electric motor technology, and it was largely due to his efforts that electricity became practical for use in technology.
As a chemist, Faraday discovered benzene, investigated the clathrate hydrate of chlorine, invented an early form of the Bunsen burner and the system of oxidation numbers, and popularised terminology such as anode, cathode, electrode, and ion. Faraday ultimately became the first and foremost Fullerian Professor of Chemistry at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, a lifetime position.
The work of Faraday was built upon to form a set of equations that is accepted as the basis of all modern theories of electromagnetic phenomena.
Albert Einstein kept a picture of Faraday on his study wall.
Physicist Ernest Rutherford stated; "When we consider the magnitude and extent of his discoveries and their influence on the progress of science and of industry, there is no honour too great to pay to the memory of Faraday, one of the greatest scientific discoverers of all time".
Faraday was a devout Christian.
Yeah well, none of that matters because he was merely a faith-based thinker....

Instead, we should pay attention to the contributions to science that Richard Dawkins has provided us which include.

Um.

Well

Let's see.

That's irrationally biased, man.
If you're right, and "faith base thinkers have nothing of value to say to evidence and reason based thinkers", then you'll need to ignore everything we've learned from these religious based thinkers:
Arthur Compton
Blaise Pascal
Ernst Haeckel
Erwin Schrödinger
Francis Bacon
Francis Collins
Galileo Galilei
Gottfried Leibniz
Gregor Mendel
Guglielmo Marconi
Isaac Newton
James Clerk Maxwell
Johannes Kepler
John Eccles
Louis Pasteur
Max Planck
Michael Faraday
Nicholas Copernicus
Rene Descartes
Robert Boyle
Robert A. Millikan
Werner Heisenberg
William Harvey
William Thomson Kelvin
IANS has an irrational animus against religion that leaves his many otherwise rational arguments open to easy refutation, this being a glaring expample.
