Well, this seems like a good place to point some things out about myself. First off, contrary to popular belief, I am not an athiest. However, I
would consider myself to be agnostic.
The answers to the question you asked are very difficult. I do not know how the universe was created. So in turn I don't know why. That question
though, is alone why I think the way I do. It is why I am who I am. It is amazing that we have come so far with the sciences, only to be stopped by
ideas that stand alone and incomprehensible. Singularities, spacetime, infinity. These concepts are where we have to stop. Our minds simply cannot
comprehend things that lie outside of the physics that we know. Religious people criticise the sciences. They never really sit back and think about
things though. Why do you think you believe in a god? You believe in one because science has yet to answer everything, and likely will never do so.
It is science itself that brings you god. You should embrace it rather than discard it.
It disturbs me when certain areas of science are attacked. I am by no means a professor in physics, but I know a lot about it. I have seen not only
the conclusions of equasions and the equasions themselves, but have been fortunate enough to learn where these things come from. I have done this
with many scientific principals that ignorant christians attack. Unfortunatly it is not feasable to try and teach a christian about science and where
it comes from. First off, this forum isn't structured in a way to make it condusive, and second, they wouldn't bother anyway.
Religion itself though, is the answer to those questions. People fear the unknown, so they make religion fill in the gaps. That is why its so easy
for them to discard science. They are not actually searching for truth, but rather blocking out the fact that they don't know it with religion.
