This site should help. If you read slowly and carefully, you'll at least get the drift. It takes more than a little reading to comprehend the science
of the origin of the Universe. I don't know how old you are, but perhaps a college course would help in your understanding of the
i dont understand the creation of time or space either...

Nobody really does for sure.
im just full of questions for both sides to answer cause, quite frankly im on the fence about this topic...
In my opinion, Creation,
or the religious side of it requires faith. You have to just hear what the
religious teachings are and believe it without proof. Because there is no proof, it's just an idea or thought from the bible. Many religious people
take the bible literally and think that the universe was actually created by God in 7 days. Poof. There is absolutely no scientific proof required or
provided for creation. It's taken on faith.
More recently, the idea of a 'hybrid' of creation and evolution has gotten a lot of press. This, the religious followers call
'. It supposes that God did have a hand in creating the Universe, but
nature and science also played roles. It's a comprimise, if you will of strict creation and strict evolution.
As far as I know, ID is also just an idea or thought as there is no scientific support for the 'creation' side of the idea. Many Christian
scientists disagree with me on that, but I have yet to read anything scientific that supports the thought that God designed the Universe. The main
objective of intelligent design believers seems to be to refute evolution through science and they fall far short.
Then you have strict evolution
, in which God isn't involved. It's all science. It's over 150
years of scientific study, logic, proof, tests and evaluation.
I am fairly agnostic about the subject. I'm not religious, so I don't believe in creation or ID, but I don't feel I know enough about evolution to
be fully invested in that, either. But I do think it's by far the most likely of the 3. (There are also thoughts that aliens had something to do with
us being here, so... we may eventually have other thoughts on the matter) I just figure if it's ever important for me to know my beginnings, I will.
I'm here now, and that's what's important to me.
Since you're curious, I advise you to read all about the subject and come to your own conclusions, what you feel you know (or suspect) to be true. Or
perhaps you'll also decide that you don't need to know. It will take some time to educate yourself, but you have a good start. And good for you for
