<quoted text> From your premise, all scientist are atheist. Is that statement correct?
That does not follow from what she said.

Not only that but as usual you confuse not believing the Bible with not believing in God. Remember on this earth, the majority of those believing in God or Gods do NOT believe in the Bible.

Great rebuttal
<quoted text>
Assuming there is a God, and assuming that his realm is not limited to
just Earth, but the entire universe. Now take into consideration the
size of the universe. Are you inferring that God is responsible for the
management of every single human's life here on Earth, every single
interaction, and the planning of every single life and death, as well as
any other potential being in the universe? This must keep him pretty
busy. What about the guy in Texas who was struck by lightning twice
yesterday. Was this part of Godís agenda?
To your last statement, every one on earth, has time limits for existence, that is why every one can not die at the same time. God does not mean evil for any one, but satan, through our ignorance.

Hmm.. In responding to Charles you're playing a little fast and loose
with the term "we". He's toying with the idea that travelling faster
than the Earth rotates is time travel. I'm waiting for him to bring up
the scientific theory of "my left is your right".
I am bringing nothing but Geography, which is an aspect or branch of science. Those lines exist, why? Because going westward from the east, you lose a whole day and vice versa. What scientific laws or theories are you looking for again?

I call that a deliberate dodge. The only habitable planet is, planet earth.

The evolution of eukaryote cells into multiple cell organisms became organized thus forming into nervous tissue with neuroglia, which became a neural network of cells. This neural network of neuroglia and nervous tissue eventually evolved into animals with a brain of these sensory components.

Thats 4.
Estimated planets in the observable universe = 10 to the power of 24. 1
followed by 24 zeroes. Thats more planets than there are grains of sand
on all the beaches of the world. Now unless you claim to be God
yourself, you cannot possibly know how many could harbour life.
As long as planet earth remains the only habitable planet, your premise is fallacious. Until then!

No yours is the faith statement. You are saying that just because you
cannot think of another way for things to spring up, you "know" there
must be a designer.
Yet Darwin already pointed to a way where things can spring up without
design. Whether evolution happened or not, that mechanism provably
works. So your faith based confidence in your knowledge that there is
only one way for something to spring up is just wrong.
Both are faith based. How? To evolution, they believe not in creation, but to Christianity, they do believe in that. Now, do you as a person came up without your parents?

No. A fundamentalist christian believes every word of the bible is literally true.

There is no such thing as an evolutionist who believes that everything Darwin wrote is literally true. In fact virtually everything any evolutionary scientist has ever writtten has been subject to open testing and criticism by peers. We accept, provisionally, aspects of the theory that have passed scientific testing. We accept the possibility of error and improvement at every step.

Nothing could be more different from your gullible acceptance of whatever a bunch of ignorant goatherds wrote thousands of years ago.

All these are projections or guesses. If by accident, some body lost his or brains, can science, re create a natural one?

No, one is based on logical and observable processes like natural selectionand mutation. It takes no faith to observe and understand these things.

You on the other hand assume that God exists but have not one shred of evidence for it. That is why your views are based on faith, but mine are not.

Ofcourse. No living humans are perfect, even before or after death. The issue stands, God exist, and that is the bone of contention(s).

1000000000000000000000000

Estimated to exist?

On the other hand I can define what makes a planet habitable with some confidence. Lets say one in 20 is at the right distance from its sun, 1/10 has enough water, 1/30 has the protective magnetic field, 1/10 the right gravity range etc etc etc.

Based on that kind of reasoning, there will still be millions of habitable planets scattered throughout the universe, even if its only a 1 in a billion chance per planet.

Us not being perfect does not prove God exists.

Nor do science not knowing how to make a brain, or knowing when we will die, or any of the other weird "proofs" that you seem to think means there is a God.

You only use these ridiculous proofs because you dont have any good ones.

Go into an Alzheimers ward and look at what is left of people whose brains are being destroyed. Soul? Rubbish. Your mind is your brain. Soul is just BS people made up because they are afraid of dying and hope their identity does not die when their brain does.

That is why you are ignorant. Every directions proves that possibilities. God exist. Period.
