    I respect your opinions everybody...

    But I'm just giving my thought that there is a God...
    If i say that you gotta grow a mango, but you don't have a mango on this planet grown ever before,, means no seed,, and no scientific method can be done to a mango tree or a mango to grow one without having one.. ever!
    Create means to create something from nothing,, not making something which already is created ,, can any scientist can create a bee, fly, or an ant? From nothing ,,, you don't have the choice of cloning, or any technique whatsoever..

    Ask any scientist how you gonna create earth? He say I'll take cosmic dust..
    Why take cosmic dust? Make your own cosmic dust,, you're creating something from a matter which already exists,, remember can you create something from nothing?

    I believe that little knowledge of science makes you an atheist but more scientific knowledge makes you believe in God..

    Jus my opinion though..

    Interesting viewpoint, which I respect.
    I'm not here to ridicule God believers. Far from it.
    If peoples lives are to her through belief, then it has to be a good thing.

    On the science stuff. ...check out a dude called Newton. He created a few principles. One of which is, matter can not be created nor destroyed.
    And also check out a dude called Darwin, he has some theories on how we got a mango tree.

    Those are just theories, not facts. And there has been another dude called 'Pastuer' he too has something to say

    Those "theories" are based on scientific principles, religion and a nonexistent "God" are based on superstitions from ignorant tribesmen thousands of years ago.
    The more science progresses the closer we come to proving those theories are facts.
    That is something that will never happen with anyones' God.

    that is your opinion! just because you don't believe in God doesn't mean God doesn't exist.. a lot of people believe in a God Muslims and Christians alone are 4 billion people that believe in God... and i'm not even mentioning all the other religions out there !! just because science is progressing that doesn't mean you're going to prove your assumption.


    Of course that works both ways, just because you do believe in God doesn't mean that God does exist.

    When a lawyer or an auditor provides an “opinion” to a client, it’s not a casual expression of personal feelings. Likewise, in science, a “theory” isn’t a hunch or a wild guess.

    Scientific theories are well-supported explanations of facts.

    So, what exactly is it that you claim is only my opinion ?

    The fact that scientific theories are based on sound and tested science ?
    Or that "God" does not exist ?

    If science continues to progress at the rate it has done just in the last 100 years or so, then one day
    it might, just might, prove my assumption.

    Whereas, if 4 billion gullible fools continue believing in what is nothing more than a forerunner to political systems designed for nothing more than to control the ignorant masses, even ten thousand years from now, you will still never be able to prove yours.

    Likewise, and with Talha as well. Many scientists are also creationists and many "sciences" have actually proven creationism over darwinism.

    1. No they are not. Many theories that were considered facts in the past are now negated. For example: it was said that atom cannot be sub-divided but now more than 100 sub atomic particles have been discovered.

    2. Yes, if science continues to progress at this rate, the Earth would be fixed by nukes. :( But your assumption could not be proved to be true.

    3. As an ocean cannot be captured in a glass, God cannot be comprehended completely by a limited human mind. If He could be grasped mentally how come He is God ........... :neutral:
    Science can never prove His existence . Science is man-made. Theories come, some get debunked and some are considered true. All are manly thoughts and thus are limited.

    1. Yes they are, flatly denying a fact doesn't make it any less true.
    2. I am hoping that one day science will be able to provide proof one way or the other, and you can guess which way I am leaning.
    3. That sort of sound-bite is as meaningless and condescending as that old chestnut "god works in mysterious ways". Man invented god, not the other way round. Therefore god is man-made.

    It's most likely only "rubbish" to you because I said it. I know you don't care for me. I'm ok with that. The World keeps right on spinning regardless. It's easy really.....if we came from monkeys, why are there still monkeys? Why aren't they evolving? And quite simply, you are entitled to believe what you wish to believe and even attack others for believing otherwise. Just shows your level of maturity and intelligence. If i die, and there is no God, then i was wrong, and i'm just dead. No consequences. If one who adamantly denies God dies, and finds Him to be there.....may He find good favor in your works towards others in your life. No rubbish there, just facts. Good day Nan

    Erm how did this suddenly get to be all about you David ? You really don't want to start spouting about other peoples maturity or intelligence when you do that sort of thing. Making the debate centered around yourself is the height of self-serving arrogance, not exactly very Christian of you now, is it ? Good day to you too.

    Not the intent at all. You quoted MY response and said utter rubbish, yet were ever so vague as to what the actual "rubbish" was. It's all good. I addressed the only subject matter OTHER than "it being aimed at me", right behind it. And there was nothing "unChristian" in my response. But I thank you for the well wishes just the same.

    OK I'll be more specific, the rubbish I was referring to was the statement that there is any scientific proof favouring creationism over darwinism. Anything you may have read to the contrary is certainly not science.
    It was not aimed at you, whereas there is no denying that your comments about maturity and intelligence, or the lack of, was most certainly aimed at me. Of course you could always take a leaf out of Trumps book and deny it now, even though the proof is there for all to see.
    Also, and this IS aimed at you Sir, any respect I may have for any person flies right out of the window when I discover they believe in such preposterous nonsense as creationism.

    I only have to say this. I do not care about what scientist have to say or do not say. What it is in my heart it matters only. I missed the old days when people had more respect to each other . Money and power made people turn the tables around. Second if someone becomes sick and we need prayers ? Who we going to turn to ? Money and power turn people against each other . I rather keep my faith and my spirit how it is. Only my opinion lets keep everyone's faith to themselves .

    sry, but when you are sick you need a doctor (science) and not a prayer!
