right i suppose we would have to accept that as good evidence for god. it's the formless part i have trouble with, i just can't imagine what a god would look like.
hey, look, i'm not bothering with caps too, it's actually not a bad idea as it seems to save time : )
I think i'd prefer aliens messing with us than any celestial supervisor. ha
I think there are two aspects to consider here - Whether or not god/gods exist. And if god(s) exist, are we supposed to live our lives in a particular way to appease these gods.
Whether god exists or not is a paradoxical question. If you say that the universe needed a creator & couldn't have come into existence on its own, then the same can be said of your god(creator). If you say that your god always existed, is timeless etc, then the same can be said about the universe. But if you say that the universe(or multiverse) didn't need a creator and exists on its own, then the counter intuitive idea of something out of nothing comes into play. All you can say is that it is simpler & more logical that the universe came into existence on its own and then evolved, instead of an entity coming into existence and then planning & executing the creation & evolution of the universe.
But when religion comes into the fray, then its not just about belief in the existence god(s) but all the dogma that comes with it. Theists will have you believe that the god they believe in and the religion they follow is the true god/religion & the right way to live is to follow the way of life prescribed by that religion. And when you see the contradictions & in accuracies, impossibilities/improbabilities in the religions & their texts then you can say that the religion is false.
That's exactly why all the arguments from creation are waste of time. Even if you can somehow prove a creator god, you still don't have theism. Why does that god care what we eat, when we work and who we have sex with in what position? And how does he communicate those wishes to us?
