Beleif in creationism, no, but there is a creationist conspiracy. Do you doubt it?
I don't believe atoms just pop out of a vacuum all by themself.
There are, in fact, particles that pop in and out of existence, even today. The phenomenon is called the 'quantum foam'. But if you are talking
about the 'big bang', if you notice, the theory doesn't say that things popped up out of nothing, it states that we simply don't know what
happened in those first instances. I'd say that science not being able to explain why there is something, rather than nothing, is not much of a

Thats right, the only reason a person can accept a well supported scientific theory is because they 'hates the bible and jesus'.
Do you have any evidence to support creationism or no? Whats the scientific theory of creationism by the way? Or would you agree that its not
