I want you all to know I'm only writing this for you. God certainly doesn't need me to "have His back". I'm not one of those people who think I need to prove God. Someone once said "God is there, and He is not silent". And I agree. And I usually don't like these types of debates. I don't think they get us anywhere? But I feel your deserving of some response from our last thread.
For atheism to be true we all are here by accident. And the complexity and design of the universe is an amazing coincidence. Time and space came from nothing. Matter and energy came from nothing. Even with all the resources readily available, money, laboratories, Universities and supposedly the brightest and geekiest scientists in the world no one has ever produced one single living cell.
If atheism is true then the 2nd law of thermodynamics (everything is winding/breaking down over time) takes a vacation when bad things evolve to good. And we evolved from another life form or species with out the same number of chromosomes? Why don't you worry that your dog may impregnate your neighbors cat or your pet hamster? If it takes millions of years for a small insect to develop a defense system to combat it's stalker, why wasn't it extinct after about 2 weeks on Earth?
No matter what what era we lived in, and no matter what geographic area, and no matter what kind of people were living then, we worshiped some sort of deity. And established a morale code. They felt empathy, shame, compassion, love, hatred and guilt.
We all have a mind like no other species. We can think, create and reason. we have instincts and emotions and the unique ability to communicate. And most of us use that ability to talk with God.
Notice I didn't mention prayer, Jesus, Holy Spirit, the Bible, changed lives, my relationship with the Lord, comfort, peace and the Church. Those things are just for Believers. But when you start with the thought process (presupposition) there is no God, then you must find reasons why "there is no God". And yes, Christians do the same thing. That's why I said "I really don't like these types of debates and they usually go nowhere".
That is also why I said "proof" or "truth" has little to do with peoples conversions or de-conversions. Proof is subjective and can change and we can all find facts to support our arguments.
Besides it all boils down to: what are we gonna do about Jesus?
"cause there is only one truth. I am the Way the Truth and the Life...
