My belief carries evidence as evolution is an observable fact. I would like to know how you still can believe that we were created by god when
evidence points to evolution.
With mankind's 5 senses, along with our brains, we can discern reality that is right before us.
But what about reports and data that we were not present to observe and witness? Would that means those reports and data are pure lies, didn't happen,
figments of imagination, delusions, etc?
That's where 'logic' and reason comes into play - the rational methodology to sieve through reports and data to find the truth. Truth does create
crisis, not only of faith, for it upsets your applecart of lies in your comfort zone, to face and confront realities bravely, painful as it often
I welcome atheists on ATS, as they often long to show their deluded sense of superiority in atheism and mocking others as irrational or delusional.
This is nothing more than their suffering from an inferiority complex, to prove to others that they are right and find support for it. Guess it can be
lonely being a minority in our faithfully religious world.
But it is not my job to change anyone. It can only come from their own free will and may it happen soon, than later, to be spared of the atheist's
loneliness, delusions, longings for belonging and misery that lays deep down in their human hearts, when the layers of ignorance, arrogance and
belligerances are stripped away.
You already answered your own question over who and what is God. "Now when you use the phrase common creator to me that creator is evolution and not a
god". Re-read what you wrote. Will you deny or claim semantics as the issue over your belief in a creator, which was written by your own hand?
In the chronicle of the Jews - the old testaments - in the book of Genesis, it was said man was created in God's likeness and image.
1,) had ANY mortal ever saw God? Is he some white robed and white bearded figure sitting on a throne?
2.) how would the ancient scribes describe energies, molecular structures, etc, issues of science which they know nothing of?
'likeness and image' can mean many issues - physical mortal appearance, inward character traits, etc, and even something that no mortal had ever seen
before - our souls.
We know today that our human body is made of DNA through the combination of other elements.It is not by random, but by intelligent design, for we do
not see DNA forming other new kind of beings daily. We humans are one of a kind and had been for centuries, if not for millenia.
Our bodies contain 'electrical charges' - nerve cells from our brains to the rest of our body parts inorder for us to function. If those cells are
dead, the human body shell cannot function.
But what of our souls? What are the chemical combinations, if any? They are none other than the electrical energies that give our brains and body
parts functionality. We are light beings, existing in these DNA body shells to perform physical roles on this planet.
If we are light beings, then,' in His likeness and image were man created ' would mean...............
In our ancient past, when our ancestor plant a seed on the ground, water it, fertalize the ground, in time a fruit tree is grown. That's all they
knew, unlike today when even a child is aware that based upon current known sciences, there is a lot more of processes happening then just mere
planting of seed for food.
When an explosion occurs, we just see light, parts and smoke flowing apart. What else is created? How much do we truly know based upon our limited
scientific knowledge today? And critically, what actually and really happens in a 'big bang' in the vacuum of space? Had any mortal witness it, beside
just spouting infantile theories and hypothesis of current known science?
Sorry for the long post. My point is...there is still much to know and learn. Shutting the mind up only leads to ignorances, which will have impact
and consequences upon our lives later when reality strikes.
