    I don't hate creationism, people can believe what they want to believe, there is no law against it. Scientifically they can theorize on a big bang, but not provide hard enough evidence to satisfy those who won't believe it anyway.

    Let's face it, and be honest about it, there is no evidence I could provide that would make you believe anything but creationism. Your mind is made up and there is no changing it. That is the problem with debates like this one. All the facts in the world will not change the mind of someone who believes in a creator that cannot be proven exists.

    The problem comes in when creationists want creationism taught in public schools. The church is the place to teach religion based creationism. The home is the place to teach religion based creationism. Public schools are not the place to teach religion based creationism.

    Where did God come from? What is on the other side of the Universe (or, how high is up)? Frankly, why should we care?

    Would you P_P change your behavior if today we learned God does not exist? Does your behavior reflect your fear of hell, or desire for heaven? Would you surrender to hedonism if there were no God? Covet your neighbors property or spouse? Do you only obey the law for fear of the consequences?

    If God exists, whose side is S/He on?

    Glad to educate you. In the first place the question of how the universe started is totally seperate from the creation question. I believe at least one line of Genesis is true, "let there be light"(The Big Bang). Creation of life on earth, however, is a different story. That was accomplished by evolution utilizing the Laws of Chemistry and Physics laid down at the beginning. God created the universe, but used evolution to create life, IMO.

    This is a good example of why I don't believe in creationism/intelligent design. If there are 64 possible mRNA codons and 20 amino acids, why do some AAs have 6 codons and some only one? Seems to me that an intelligently designed sysytem would have three for each AA and 2 each for stop and start.

    Well I think life evolved on earth and i've seen proof of life forms evolving so Im not getting into that part but im really curious as to where the big bang came from.

    How does science prove that the big bang happened?
    How does science prove how the situation that caused the big bang to happen came to be?
