single cell organisms, plant life , animal life and yes the dinosaurs. we learned about how all the different systems work in many forms of life.
and you know that the teachers couldnt tell me how all the single cell life forms decided how they were gonna be a fish,tree,flower, blade of grass,
dog ,cat ,snake, and you know if we want to jump on the way back machine, even the dinos. they couldnt tell me how all the right elements came
togather to make air, water, gasses, sand, drit, rocks and the list can go on and on.
you know all the big bangers that think all that is came about by a couple of atoms smashing togather, and what it produced just kinda happ hazzardly
came togather over billions of years and made all that we can see ,feel, smell, and taste,here on earth or in the universe. i just cant understand why
they cant see there was a design to it all.
so if you want to keep on using the big banger logic, not open your eyes and see what is as plain as day,that life the earth, the universe and im sure
things we cant see are far to complex to have just happ hazzardly happened. i will pray for you, just like i pray for others here that seem to be
fighting the truth.
Why not let it just be random?
Why must it have "a design"?
I think that's the beauty of life, really, that everything is random. It would be really painful to go to lengths to attribute everything "to
design" - and really, that is what many, NOT ALL, Christians do.
"I thank God that I made it through to the finals. You were watching over me."
"I thank God I'm cured of tuberculosis. You love me so much."
"I thank God I'm eating pudding, and not ice cream, today. You influenced my decision."
A bit too extreme, I know... but to me, that's exactly what it sounds. Everyday, everyone goes "I thank God" and "I thank God", but really, EVEN
IF he were to exist, why would he bother curing one single fry like you and leave thousands elsewhere to die? It's forcing a structured intelligent
control over things that are uncontrollable...
... and really, that is what religion is about. ALL religion that worships higher beings in physical forms.
Because for you, life is random. Too random for you to make sense of it all. You need to know, to FEEL, that someone is up there, guiding you,
watching you, loving you, protecting you etc. etc. It's like you left your parents to become independent... but in essence, you're still hoping for
that parental figure to guide you.
Science is random. You mentioned the HADRON collider, which tried to recreate the Big Bang, which so far hasn't succeeded. Why? Perhaps they haven't
found the right mixture of components yet to recreate the explosion. Why is Earth "in the Goldilocks Zone", with the right proportion of oxygen,
nitrogen, water and heat? Because it is. Of all the lucky planets in our solar system, we just happen to have gotten the right distance from the sun
TRILLIONS OF YEARS AGO (which is a long time for ANY probability to happen).
Now I presume you don't believe in aliens, since God only created humans in the Bible. But I believe in their existence. They are out there. And some
of them, they got lucky too. The amount of time is long enough for ANYTHING to happen. How did time come about? How did singularity come about? Well,
more research. More science.
You don't have to pray for me. I am not afraid of death. I am not afraid of going to your so-called Heaven or Hell. As long as I have lived my life
well, I have nothing to fear from anything elsewhere. Even if I DO have something to fear - well, by all means, BRING IT ON and let's see who comes
out on tops.
Don't pray for me. No one should pray for anyone else. You believe in God, that's fine. Pray that He continues to watch over you and keeps you, one
in a billion Christians, safe.
