Wrong assumptions about what?
The universe, in essence, then, must be a continuum of space-time, matter, and energy.
You mean because you don't agree it makes whatever I say wrong?
You see I don't have a problem with you having your own opinions. Can you say the same about me?
Then tell me if you will what does Genisis mean when it says "God created the heavens and the earth"
Can I prove God exists and created everything? No. Do I believe He did? Yes. Can you prove God didn't create the heavens and earth? No Do you believe He did? It would appear that you don't. So what?

I respect your opinion. I do not agree, but I respect it. I have yet to see anything in my life as spiritual. I unfortunately can only see things for what they are and nothing more.
I come to these threads to read and try to understand but instead only get lost when I see people use the words "feelings" and in "my heart" I know it to be. That puts my trying to understand back at zero again.
This is a physical world based upon facts. Anything else is fantasy until proven otherwise. We as people are too free, free to believe in whatever we want. Free to believe that when we die we have virgins waiting for us in the after life. It is that type of free thinking that is crippling us and holding us back.

Nothing new there, just the usual cherrypicked and reinterpreted Bible verses, anachronistic readings and statements of the obvious. As I'm sure you know, Randy, you'll have to do a lot better than that to impress me. Though I must say your uncanny familiarity with the presumed content of CherubBaby's forthcoming posts does give rise to a rather interesting suspicion...
I liked this thread better when edmc^2 did it a couple of months ago. He at least added pretty pictures to cover up his ridiculous overreaching regarding how the Bible is accurate in a scientific sense.
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth -- NKJV."
“Now we see how the astronomical evidence leads to a biblical view of the origin of the world.”
“That the universe has not always existed—that it had a beginning—has not always been popular.”
“Virtually all astrophysicists today conclude, that “the universe began with a big bang that propelled matter outward in all directions.” – reported U.S.News & World Report in 1997
“You can call it the big bang, but you can also call it with accuracy the moment of creation.” – Robert Jastrow
“Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe which was created out of nothing.”
“What we have found is evidence for the birth of the universe.” – COBE team leader George Smoot
Randy, I'm shocked at you... using an atheist website link like that. You should have done some digging around on that site and looked at the pages where they refute the scientific accuracy of the Bible.

You seem to like using my "what say you"
Never thought i'd be giving you a star for a post but hey.... thats life eh...
So if you believe in this "big bang" theory...
then what is God?
