    Post Re: The Big Bang Theory

    Who here believes the Big Bang Theory and Why? This is religion Related
    I adhere to it. Obviously the Universe is both finite in size and age as science, has proven. Given those facts it must have started at some, point in time and at a certain size(space).

    If it is religion-related, then I will answer: I could more easily believe in the Big Bang theory than I can believe in a "god". God does not exist.
    I think this is really a matter of opinion. Religion is in the mind of the believer. To him there is no other reality. So in that matter what Descartes says holds true "I think therefore I am".

    Religion and lack thereof, is part of human nature. Every human culture in history has had their "religion". I see Religioin as nothing more than an extension of human culture. Nowadays some people have found "replacements". I believe every "ism" in itself is a religion. Which is nothing more than a set of traditions that dedicate behavior.

    The definition of God is however highly subjective. Are we referring to the Aristotelian prime mover?
    I think the Simplest way to define God and what Christians think he is is this that God is a Being who is all powerful, all Knowedgeable, all present(Omnipotent, OMNISCIENT ,Omnipresent). And whom they attribute as the "prime mover" that is the cause of all events without which nothing would be.

    I also used to be a Christian, but mature reason has persuaded me to leave God for good. There is absolutely no evidence for the existence of God. It is all speculation - and speculation is not good enough for me.
    My point of view is this. Everything in life can be explained in terms of the "natural laws" and there is no need for one to say oh that happened because God made it happen.

    Even if there is a God it would be impossible to Define just who he IS! There are thousands of religious groups each with their own version of God.

    I think the reason there are so many mysteries is that are "logic" hasn't fully developed. Nor will it ever be fulled matured but it is always developing isn't it? Science maps leaps and bounds every day.

    Post Re: The Big Bang Theory

    The Big Bang Theory is supported by several physical observations. The first is the red shift of light being emitted from distant galaxies in the cosmos which demonstrates the expansion of the universe. Or maybe this is just a deception by the unbelieving.

    The second is that the pattern of background radiation in the universe suggests an extremely high-energy centralized explosion some time in the distant past, if I recall.

    There are other observations as well but I am not an astrophysicist or cosmologist so I can't recite them off the top of my head.

    Skando-naivian-girl, are you a Catholic only by upbringing then?

    Post Re: The Big Bang Theory

    Here's a fact for you. Jesus's last prophecy was that in the near future, there would be a slaughter of Jews almost as bad as the holocaust. There was. How do you explain that: The Jews followed the Old Testimate. There were 206 prophecies in it about the Messiah. Then, a guy comes along and perfectly fits the Messiah description...the jesw just don't see it...but the point is the same.

    There was? How come I wasn't notified?

    How do you explain that: The Jews followed the Old Testimate.
    Testimate
    A statistical package for: exact tests, measures of relevance, confidence intervals, tests for equivalence/non-inferiority. Selection of features: several data input modes (files, spreadsheet input, table and statistics editor), audit paper trail, eight different algorithms for calculating non-asymptotic or permutational exact results, emphasis or simple robust (nonparametric) procedures, all procedures validated.

    Don't you mean: the old testicle?

    There were 206 prophecies in it about the Messiah. Then, a guy comes along and perfectly fits the Messiah description...the jesw just don't see it...but the point is the same.
    What if, maybe.......just maybe.......the Jews didn't see it, because there was no Jesus Christ?

    Are these records with country music or gospel?

    What do you think will happen to you when you die?
    I don't know, but neither do you. We can both guess
    No book is going to tell you that.
    If that's the only reason why you're religious, because you want to ensure a good afterlife, you might as well go for a religion that provides the best afterlife there is.
    I heard that Muslims offer much better Afterlife deals

    Post Re: The Big Bang Theory

    You are right...yet you are not right. I know what will happen to me when I die. I am going to go to heaven. What heaven is like, I don't know and will have to wait until I get there. And yes, I am worried about what my afterlife will be like, but It is my duty to glorify God and to Send out the word of Jesus christ and God. And right now, that is what I am doing. I am spreading the word and trying to save as many people as I can. If you don't join me, that is you decision. If you do, I promise you that it will make more sense.

    This is complicated. Mabye, that was the wrong thing to say. Ok...really, the only thing that christianity is is believing that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins, and that beliefe will guarentee your way to heaven. He is a bridge.That is the inportant thing. But it glorifies God by doing his will throught your actions. It will effect the way you see things.

    1. The books of the New Testament are generally believed to have been written after 70AD, when the fall of Jerusalem occurred. So, it was easy to add in a few "prophecies"

    2. The "Holocaust" is a myth like Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy.
