Atheists are often asked whether there is any sort of argument or evidence that would make them believe in God. Of course, the answer is yes. Jesse at Pandagon mentions one example.
Mr. Franek mentioned that “most educated religious authorities affirm that belief in God and evolution is not in conflict.” How can this statement be true if it leaves God (creator) out of the picture in creating man? God says he created man in his own image in Genesis, the first book of the Bible.
How is it that scientists can examine a rock specimen from Mars and “affirm” that there was once water on Mars (which has no water), and look at our planet, which is 70 percent water, and declare that there is no evidence of a worldwide flood?
Scientists and religious authorities are, indeed, fallible.
It’s called “science”. You see, massive flooding leaves evidence. You do know what evidence is, don’t you? It’s that stuff that convicts the B-list celebrities on Law & Order. Think about that…but on a big, global scale.
You see, one thing has nothing to do with the other – whether or not there was ever water on Mars has no bearing on if the entire planet flooded several thousand years ago. It’s not like Noah built an intergalactic starship and bumped his ass to Mars to dump off the extra water, all the while bringing the pure power of funk to benighted Martians.
And if he did, I have to rethink this whole atheist thing, because that’s sweet.
It’s true. Any credible evidence of God using his omnipotence to help humans bring the funk to other planets, and I’d become a regular churchgoer.
