Why is it that the workings of the brain, the organs, the immune system, and all those processes that keep us alive, show more intelligence than the consciousness that inhabits?
Given that by observation of the natural world and the cosmos we observe things that we could never have invented, is it any wonder that man created religion in an attempt to explain it all?
Come on people don't be so harsh on those that have a faith. It's one thing to be able to explain the universe and origins of life, but quite another to come up with the "designs" in the first place. We might say that "life finds a way to evolve by itself", but why is it so? Why should life "care" that it continues to exist?
God cannot be proven by scientific measure, but for me philosophical arguments make a good case for His existence.
All I know is that during my 25 years in Church I was told that God talks to everyone, that is, He came back from holiday 2000 years ago. I've certainly met hundreds of people who think God is talking to them all the time. But if I'm honest I can't recall a single occasion where I have heard God or seen evidence of His involvement in my life. So no I cannot prove God from experience as I'm supposed to be able to according to the Church.
You have the right to practice your religion, but not when it affects other people. Telling others to just go away when you do affect them is not practicing your religion, it is being disrespectful of others.
Why should life "care" that it continues to exist?
Because the creatures that don't care don't live long enough to reproduce.
As to designs, the designs are often not that good. Our eyes, for example, are poor design because of our "blind spot". A squid has a much better design - no blind spot. I guess your "designer" forgot that design when he got around to making us quite a few million years later.
I assume it has something to do with the non-randomness of it all and how we can identify certain laws and properties and the order therin; this most likely takes a slight bit of awareness and scientific discernment, for some, of course. Then again, if mythical woo-woo has you confused, you can always stumble upon quantum theories of particles that are smaller than an atom, and we all know about how empy space leads to particle-filled madness. Ha! You do the math, and it all makes sense...
Is God a nothing?Couldn't it be said that God is "no thing" -- not a physical construct or created object? If one posits a source of the universe (and logically existence of anything seems to demand a source)...
The common thought running through all religions? is this, we are the true religion. So if that the common thought how do we know which religion is the true one? I truely believe one is the true religion, but, it is...
