Of course to me the Creator - Yahweh/Jehovah/Yehowah God IS the most REASONABLE, logical and common-sensical answer because it has SOLID FOUNDATION.
One of which:
That Life on earth can only come from pre-existing life'
or to be more precise –
Intelligent Life on earth can come only from pre-existing Intelligent Life.
In addition the existence of the Universe itself with all of its PRECISE MATHEMATICAL LAWS and constants points to INTELLIGENCE at work.
To ignore it is to be an ignorant fool.
And NO - there's NO MAGIC involve - but a FULL and COMPLETE understanding of the "molecular structure of matter”, energy and ALL COSMIC laws and Natural Forces.
Being the ONE responsible for such laws thus He has the ability and the POWER to do so as He wills.
To quote the scripture since you brought it up:
(Isaiah 40:26) . . .“Raise YOUR eyes high up and see. Who has created these things? It is the One who is bringing forth the army of them even by number, all of whom he calls even by name. Due to the abundance of dynamic energy, he also being vigorous in power, not one [of them] is missing."
So... why would the creation of the universe..”halting of planetary/celestial motion...surviving several days unscathed in a fishes digestive system...various accounts of resurrection....walking on water...changing the molecular structure of matter on a whim...” be considered unscientific just because they can't be understood in today's technology and current understanding of physics?
Hypothetically lets assume an intelligent entity like creator,, came up with the ideas, functions, laws of physics, methods, and madness and initiated the universe we reside in and that created us.... lets assume for a moment that is true and really happened...
now from your position is it rational or comprehendible that that can be done? looking at the universe operates... can you think to your self, you understand that an intelligent entity could have initiated the universe ( knowing the truth of it on the back burner,, but even being skeptical too the truth but trying to see how it is possible that the entity did create the universe) could you understand how it was possible? could you still work to see how it was done and every little detail that goes on to making it all work,, still with the understanding that some creator was responsible for its existence and ways? Even if you knew a creator was responsible,, can you still look at this same universal work,, and claim the creators work is not that impressive of it,, for there is a lot of repetitive patterns,, and blind chance and dumb aspects of its creation,,,, therefore the creator isnt very smart,, isnt very sophisticated,, and is very lazy...
To be true and consistent to your own belief - the creation of life without Intelligent Creator / Designer.
I have a very simple and quick question:
If the laboratory correspond to the RNA / DNA world (environment) and the RNA / DNA molecules correspond to the building blocks of life, who do you think the Team Szostak correspond to?
Intelligence / Designer / Creator or Blind Chance Event?
You would need to demonstrate that the observed chemical reactions could not have happened without an intelligence present - that somehow the scientists were able to make these molecules behave in a way they could not have done naturally.
with everything you know about the universe,,,, could it be practically possible for an intelligent entity to have created this universe? or is it too hands off,, laissez faire,, and sloppy to be associated with what we know as intelligence?
It seems as if this is akin to:
1) proving a tree falling in the woods is making a sound, even if there is no one there to hear it?
2) The most basic question is how many different types of chemical reactions are you aware of that naturally occur, and what are the results of these reactions?
How could my statement be considered gibberish? It is two legitimate questions.
Question 1: How can you possibly determine a chemical reaction took place if there is no one there to witness it?
Question 2: Provide a list of naturally occurring chemical reactions and the results. I can think of one off the top of my head, although I am sure there are others. The one I am thinking of has not resulted in life.
No. I have not been fibbing.
