the christian god has meant different things to different people. i think it has to do with what you experience personally. a relationship of sorts with life, yourself and your ideals. But there really is one God and I don't disagree that He might mean different things to different people. But I am...

Narrowstaircase, sorry if I came out as if I were antagonising you. That was not my intention. I truly wanted to understand the link. And by asking the first question that there are conflicting forces, I saw myself a possible rebuttal to that logic and just wanted to save some time by playing both s...

but I would argue your logic for not believing in existence of God, although I haven't hear it yet and would love to, would be more illogical than for His existence.

my view is that God is the universe and cant actually be seen as something independant of it. through the smallest indivisible fibre of the universe, God is there. not above it or detached, but is actually him. If I understand you correctly, you are saying that EVERYTHING is god. In that sense, sin...

god is a symbol for something everlasting and eternal which we cant quite grip yet. and when he does come from that supernatural place of our minds into our conscious, and is explained and understood, we'll see what he was the symbol for and we'll see that it did exist all along and it is meaningfu...

You're trying to cause conflict where there isn't. Evolution only explains how life developed after it was created, not how it was created in the first place. There is no real contradiction between Darwinism and creation; the two explain completely different events. I am 100% with you on this one. ...

It's the same logic that supports Intelligent Design: if I can't understand how something could happen following perfectly natural rules, then of course supernatural forces must have been at work. For one reason or another that sounds very logical to me: if something can't possibly happen naturally...

How on earth does it not cut it? In my view evolution explains entirely how we came about, it explains perfectly our presence and to me the existence of a "creator" is far less probable. I am not sure how you are linking evolution and creation? Evolution didn't create anything. It's just ...

I think the law of science is what exists, it is not subjective but very objective, and some people had the keen ability to see the law of science in action and tried to express it in human language, i.e. Newton, Einstein, Darwin and Freud.

This universe is NOT creative. Since everything and everyone in it is guided by the law of nature, science. When one event leads to another and that first event has no choice but to lead to the next even the first event is not creating the next event, it is simply following the law of nature, which ...

It is actually possible to form an intelligent argument against intelligent design, but doing so raises numerous other questions and, in my opinion, is at least as great of a leap of faith as a belief in God. But that is the very thing I am trying to lay it out here, evidently very poorly, that the...
