Fine you want a logical explaination that you will just shrug off regardless because you refuse to accept any other form of thinking? Fine here it is.
Overtime, Stars and Suns die off and explode in supernovas. The particles that made up destroyed planets and stars from the system that was destroyed by the supernovas are spread beyond massive distances which in time will collect. That explains the rings around planets like Uranus, Saturn and Neptune. These loose particals collide with each other. The heat generated from the collision would fuse the particles together forming an even bigger partical which in time creats comets and astroids. Back then, the universe was extremely unstable with supernovas going off every which way. The shear force could of sent planets in a collision course with each other. Other colided because their orbits overlapped each other where eventually, they would collide. This explains how the Earth and the Moon has the same composition with one another: A massive rock hit Earth while it was still molten and the remaining pieces formed what is called our Moon. That explains why Earth, as small as it is, even has a moon.
Its called Astronomy. And its more real than Creationism.
Foul!
The logical conclusion or answer is that, no one can disprove the existence of God.

Atheist scientists insert "evolution-did-it" rather than "I don't know". Example: Abiogenesis. The entire theory of evolution is founded on the religion of atheism.

O Geee... A book. Just like the bible. You mean an interpretation of something that might of happened? If the book of Gensis is telling the truth, then there must be a magical land of Nania. What great physical evidence you have there. I mean, even something like fossils couldn't clearly disprove that the world was created in 7 days. Newsflash: It does.
Fiction and Reality are just two different concepts, get that!

Hello, KittenKoder!
So you're a South Park fan too!
Just one correction: it's not leprechauns which steal underwear, it's gnomes.
You might have confused that episode with another episode, in which Cartman reports that he saw a leprechaun.
Anyway, gnomes and leprechauns must really exist, because we saw it on South Park.
Charles Idemi tells us that the Bible must be true becuase it mentions actual places and actual people.
Apparently, then, any source which mentions actual places and actual people must be true.
South Park mentions actual places and actual peole, so South Park must be true.
Did the actual people endorses God or not, yes or no?

Ofcourse! because both the questions and answers are always pointing to that direction, " who ".

I'm well familiar with that stupid line. The false bifurcation of evolution and abiogenesis was established during the lifetime of Charles Darwin as scientists saw the impending collapse of spontaneous generation.
Darwinism is founded on the assumption that no intelligent design exists. All purported mechanisms of evolution are presumed to be atheistic forces. If abiogenesis is impossible, then Darwinism is reduced to nothing. Simply stating that abiogenesis has nothing to do with evolution doesn't erase the problem.

No, no they are not. only for those that are stuck in the stone-age mindset of the creator.

in fact, darwin believed life was created by a god.

how is abiogenesis different from how you think life started? life from non-living stuff, right?

How can you say that, are indirectly saying that science is a failure in this regard?
Any way, it is.

<quoted text>I don't know, and neither do you. I'm comfortable letting scientists follow the evidence to where it leads instead of leading the evidence to a preconceived idea like religion does. Claiming "god-did-it" answers nothing and explains even less. If you're comfortable with that level of 'knowledge', why are you even here arguing about it?
Foul!
You don't know simple!
But spiritually, God almighty exist.
When it comes to the study of spirits, science is zero.

No one to date, has given a satisfactory answer.

Cus there is not one sghred of proof that there are any spirits or souls or anything of the such. again, they are a non-issue in the real world.

another myth you dragged from antiquity...

And yet science are unable to answer the big question, how did the universe came into form, when in reality, it suppose to know.
