    We see quite a few threads from the Religion bashers about how ridiculous it is to believe that God created the Universe. "How can you believe a magical Man in the Sky?" they all ask.

    OK then. Here's your chance to prove to me that God didn't create the Universe. Please post any argument you may have or like that proves your ideas.

    We will, for the sake of argument in this tread only, say that the Bible doesn't exist. You may not use any reference to the Holy Book or any other Religious book for that matter because you believe it to be false, written by deluded individuals at best right?

    I would prefer only Atheists chime in but you wishy-washy "Spiritualists" may also posit your "feelings" about the matter if you wish.

    You make a valid point, Mad Scientist, however, its not that valid. Here's why: evidence.

    Although there is not enough evidence to prove that God didn't create the Earth as Genesis fails to describe, in a miraculous way. There is a lot of evidence that supports the current theories. There is NO evidence that supports God even exists.

    evidence of big bang - Google Search

    evidence of evolution - Google Search

    planetary nebula - Google Search

    evidence of origin of earth - Google Search

    I don't hold any hope that you'll follow these links and read the information contained on the websites you would find there, but, were you to let go the dogma and take the information presented skeptically and simultaneously crediting the methods and motives of those who wish to better understand the physical universe, you could learn a thing or 5,000. But, I know, you find the Bible much more comfortable.

    Ok, how about this: with advanced telescopes, we can see stars and planets being born all over the universe, why would earth be an exception?

    What the hell are you on? Prove God didn't create the Universe? That assumes that God did. Talk about begging the question.

    your point? just because something may not be totally understood or proven does not automatically mean there is some kind of mystical magic behind it.

    According to legend, Arceus created the Universe and therefore the Earth.

    Here's a picture:

    ColoradoMountainMan, I'm already well familiar with those ideas as is most everyone else is I suppose. No need to be angry about it, just explain your theories.

    Scientists always show the effects of something but never the cause.

    Darwin says that we evolved (effect) but never says from what (cause).

    It is widely believed that our universe was created by an ancient "Big Bang" and that parts from that explosion are spinning outward from the center.

    The problem is, no one can prove what caused the explosion. There is no historical record or YouTube Video of "The Big Bang". Scientists merely put forth their own theories.

    Funny, that's exactly what Religious people say about God, having never seen Him either.

    A philosopher from long ago, I can't remember who, said (And i'm paraphrasing here):

    "The universe is like a set of dominoes in line falling and knocking the next one down as we advance through the years. But there had to be a force that caused the first domino to fall".

    He called this force "The Prime Motivator".

    What is The Prime Motivator?

    As I stated in the original post, the Bible can't be mentioned.

    Fail.
