Science has proven the earth is billions of years old
My statement is "subjective" but this isn't? Then you must be a scientist that works in a lab all day doing carbon dating? if not You too are being
subjective. Post the evidence of that up here. But if you "heard" this from the rest of the people that believe that science answers all, then you too
are claiming subjective statements. post "the proof" here. Im not saying that the earth is 6,00 years old. i feel its a lot older, but im smart enough
to know i wasn't here and im not going to go telling people how it got here and how old it is. How can you prove that say something like WWI happened.
Well by using logic there's many stories written down about it. I know the information has been passed down through generations to prove it was indeed
fact. Now why do you think so many religions spawned from stories about "something" coming down and being God-like. why is that spot in Jerusalem so
important? why are all the stories in the bible real places that actually exist. its not talking abut Narnia here..also, why do these rules make so
much moral sense?
1.You shall have no other gods before me.
2.You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is
in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the
fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My
3You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
4.Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
5.Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
6You shall not murder.
7.You shall not commit adultery.
8.You shall not steal.
9.You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
10.You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor
his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”
arguing most these is almost meaningless. everyone know that they are morally sound. nobody would disagree without looking like a dick. its really
just the "God" part people have a problem with.
“One reason why many people find Creative Evolution so attractive is that it gives one much of the emotional comfort of believing in God and none of
the less pleasant consequences. When you are feeling fit and the sun is shining and you do not want to believe that the whole universe is a mere
mechanical dance of atoms, it is nice to be able to think of this great mysterious Force rolling on through the centuries and carrying you on its
crest. If, on the other hand, you want to do something rather shabby, the Life-Force, being only a blind force, with no morals and no mind, will never
interfere with you like that troublesome God we learned about when we were children. The Life-Force is a sort of tame God. You can switch it on when
you want, but it will not bother you. All the thrills of religion and none of the cost. Is the Life-Force the greatest achievement of wishful thinking
the world has yet seen?”

“Science (when it becomes perfect), will have explained the connection between each link in the chain and the link before it. But the actual
existence of the chain will remain wholly unaccountable. We learn more and more about the pattern. We learn nothing about that which ‘feeds’ real
events into the pattern. If it not God, we must at least call it Destiny–the immaterial, ultimate, one-way pressure which keeps the universe on the
“Really, a young Atheist cannot guard his faith too carefully. Dangers lie in wait for him on every side. You must not do, you must not even try to
do, the will of the Father unless you are prepared to "know of the doctrine." All my acts, desires, and thoughts were to be brought into harmony with
universal Spirit. For the first time I examined myself with a seriously practical purpose. And there I found what appalled me; a zoo of lusts, a
bedlam of ambitions, a nursery of fears, a harem of fondled hatreds. My name was legion.” c.s. lewis
