THE ONLY thing in our marvelous universe that can create order out of chaos (negentropy, or syntropy) is life and consciousness.
No. You have been shown several times, using different examples, that this is not true. You are wrong.
Do just a little physics research
Physics was my university degree subject. How much physics do you know?
Notice that the universe was once at a state of high order and low entropy. Entropy increases (disorder) in the universe. WHY????
Because the amount of energy available for doing work in the universe is constantly being used up. Because there are a lot more potential state configurations of disorder than there are possible ordered states, so disorder is more probable than order.
I've got to hand it to myself, this is the best proof yet!!
Yes, you'd better hand it to yourself because no-one else is going to hand it to you.

Design is the only answer that is logical.

The point being Einstein believed in a Creator! He saw Purpose is a Result From The Perfect Order of Creation!
Yes, He claimed not to know God personally, But he was Honest enough to say their Was A Creation From A Creator/God)
"I want to know how God created this world, I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details." Einstein's famous epithet on the "uncertainty principle" was "God does not play dice" - and to him this was a real statement about a God in whom he believed.
It is hard to believe that if the Flood were only a local event, there would be 80,000 different accounts of it from around the world that describe it as universal in scope. GN

There is about 8 million accounts of alien abductions, doesn't make them any more true
I think people underestimate how rapid can the spread be of cultural influence, even before the communication age. Humans have wild imaginations.
How about a university paper as opposed to a "Church of God" website? Where is the creationism evidence that is based on years and years of hard work, gathering data, assessing probability, and thereby submitted for years and years of a painstaking peer review process before finally being published on page 123-124 in an October issue of "Digger Wasps and Katydids"
I am not exactly a creationist. There is no way I believe the earth is only 6 thousands years old when we have fossils millions of years old.
I believe there is an intelligent consciousness, but does that mean a god formed man from clay? I don't think so. I believe life is an an evolutionary process with maybe interference.
Everything should be backed up by science, but some things cannot yet be backed up by science.
Have I known there is a higher consciousness we can attain? Yes, absolutely. Man does NOT know fully what he is yet.
I believe science and spirituality will merge one day.
Yes, I do believe myth has some truth to it. Dinosaurs have been found with feathers.
sirnex, some scientists don't believe there has been enough time for man to evolve from an ape.
Science certainly can't explain the origin of our dna.
I don't think anything supernatural interfered with man's evolution. I don't believe they were gods, in other words.
Why should you assume that this age is more advanced than past ages? This earth is 4.5 billion years old.
You can call me a creationist if you choose, but there is a difference between faith and knowing.
Knowing what you are and knowing what you are capable of has nothing to do with organized religion. My concept of god or source is different than most. I believe we are all a part of an intelligent consciousness and we are not separate from it.
Believe me, you can be much more aware than you are or you wouldn't assume you are already.
I have done things that humans don't know they are capable of doing.
I don't think a creator molded man from clay.
I believe life began in water. Scientists are not even sure of this hypothesis.
Along the evolutionary path, I believe there was interference.
Okay, nuff said, until you can bend spoons.

I never lie. I wish I could explain it to you in scientific terms. Everything vibrates at a certain frequency and I also think thought has energy or frequency. One day I was talking to my sister(feeling very up!) At the same time, when I answered her, I was thinking of my mother. At that exact moment, my voice came in over my mother's stereo. I was asking a question "What are you doing now?" Freaky, huh? There have been moments in my life where unusual things happened, but I am definitley not a liar. I think it's all about raising the frequency and disbelief is why i don't like to discuss it. I'm just an ordinary person, but I know that others can do the unordinary also and consistently. James Twyman, for instance, the peace troubador.
