Question for those with faith and atheists. Existence. No Preaching Please!


Whether you beleive in a God or you do not, both arguments would have to explain how something could come to exist from nothing. For religious people, how did God come to exist? For Aetheists or big bang theorists, how did the super condensed molecule come to exists to preclude the big bang? These questions seem unanswerable to me...not unlike what came first, the chicken or the egg?

    There are many philosophical questions that are not answerable with the knowledge or abilities we have that people let stop them from living. People can't understand the why or how of something and lose faith/motivation.

    Ironically, the proof that the world was round was commonly accepted centuries before the almost non-existent belief that the world was flat. Sailors always knew it was round, you can see it.

    I agree but unfortunately people and cultures fight to the death over it and politics and religion fight to teach non-scientific things in science class over it as well....the argument affects us all like it or not i guess.

    I agree but both religion and science claim they have an answer. I generally side with science because it is at least based on something tangible rather than the "just because" argument.

    I really don't think science will be able to come up with an answer to this question that will be accepted. It can't be repeated without killing us all. It will come down to a matter of faith for most in my opinion... but what if it was repeatable?
