This is going to sound like gibberish to you (and I understand), but to this day, I have never seen any compelling evidence for the cosmic evolution (the big bang theory) or even the macro evolution. I think it's a myth.

Now, I love science, I love biology and especially planetary astronomy. I have studied this subject diligently and I have spoken to a number of my professors about this and came to a conclusion that most respected scientists and educators in this field simply assume the theory to be true because these things have been proven and accepted long ago so there is no longer the need for the proof. Many studies and extensive researches have been done and published on this topic.

And yet, I have never seen any compelling evidence that this world came to existence on it's own, without any outside intervention.

Please don't think that I am ignorant. Maybe you know something that I don't. If so, please share!


  1. What compelling evidence do you have that the world or universe was brought into being by an outside agent? Moreover, what does "outside" mean in this context? Let's assume you are talking about the notion of God as the unmoved mover. To me, this is just a way of saying, "Some things, we cannot know." At the end of the day, there will probably be many things humans will be powerless to know, but it is not yet the end of the day, so why not keep on searching?

  2. What outside intervention do you think might be responsible?

    I'm not saying you're right or wrong - as I don't have the answers myself - I'm just curious.

  3. Jeff M: Ha, you're throwing the question right back at me! I can't say that I have any good evidence for creation. After all, I believe that the universe coming to existence was a supernatural event. That's why there couldn't be any scientific evidence for it.

    I guess, I just always believed that the God of the bible created everything, and was never convinced otherwise. From a scientific view, the bible is the most historically accurate document in antiquity. Obviously you don't have to accept that. But here are other reasons why I believe that God is responsible for bringing everything into existence: (1) the incredible complexity of this universe even at a microscopic level--a plant cell is more complex than a space rocket!, (2) the undeniable belief of most humans that the soul is immortal, (3) huge abundance and variety of species of every kind (perhaps to make life more interesting), (4) conscience or people's instinct to act against their self-preservation for the sake of a loved one, (5) human's ability to think abstractly. Hope this helps.

  4. I think the Old Testament was definitely full of historical accuracies because it chronicled major events like slavery in Egypt and the Babylonian exile that could be accounted for in other texts and histories. There's even a recipe for pita bread in there. But events like manna magically appearing and 3 men being set on fire with not a single scratch has to be taken on faith. That's really the best you can do with either religion or science. It's all about faith.
