    I can't allow a God to exist if I want to be the center of the known universe can I?

    All religion is based on theory. That's called FAITH.... belief without provable fact. I don't think that many people can or will disagree with that. In fact that's what givees religion/spirituality its value; the fact that it cannot be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.

    The problem is that much of what we accept as scientific "fact" is really theory as well. The proponents of Science need to understand that much of what they promote is no more provable beyond a shadow of a doubt than the existance of God, Zeus, Thor, Aphrodite, or any other spiritual, religious, of mythological entity.

    Theory is not faith.

    there are theorys based in fact and theorys based in emotion.

    God is a theory based in emotion.

    evolution is a theory based in fact

    Wait until you find out !
    IT. Yes, IT, isn't what your masters have been teaching you for all of these thousands of years.
    Even all of the various scripts say the truth will set you free.
    It's just very hard to find.
    One script says: Matthew 7:13,14 "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it."

    HINT: There isn't a flag waving above the gate.
