I believe that God made the Universe but i also believe that the Universe was created in a different way.
I also believe we all have souls.

What i am trying to say is that why do people fight about this matter?
I love god with all my heart. I also think science is the best way to fix things and cure. But when i die i dont think ill go to heaven because maybe its not heaven maybe its a place we all go to when our soul's leave our body. Then again i think this could all be scientific with a mix of believing in a spiritual being helping us. My friends think that i can never mix the two because people will see me differently...well so what?
I like to think that God is a scientist. I basically accept everyone's beliefs, i dont care if they dont believe what i do, why should i care? I can't control them, no one should. Its just that why can't science and Religion or Spirituality work together instead of fighting who is right or who is wrong?
i dont understand it one bit

Belief is personal, sadly there is a full frontal assault on those that do believe. Keep you faith close to your heart, that way no one can deny that it is truly yours and yours alone. When you truly have faith, no one can ever TAKE that from you. ;)

Eureka, as I'm nearing my end I've found that faith truly DOES matter. Without the belief of something greater to guide and keep me sane right now, I'd have already taken my life, and just how selfish is that? My favorites poem right now is Footprints in the sand, if you know it, the fact I'm dying from cancer will make its meaning even more clear. I'm praying round the clock that my suffering won't last forever, and I trust my faith will carry me when it always seems so dark.

You should care because if you truly love God with all your heart, you love people will all your heart too. If you truly love them, you should care about where they spend eternity.

People just like to prove other people wrong. Yes it's stupid to be arguing about something like this anyways because no one should get mad at someone else's belief.

Think of it this way. The bible says that God created the universe. It doesn't say how he created it.

Exactly, he could have created the universe with a Big Bang. Time didn't exist at that point so it could have appeared in a flash, but the Bible says 7 days so we can better understand it. It could have said God made the earth in 7 seconds ( too short..) 7 weeks? (Too long..)

My question is why does god let innocent people die my point is not everything happens for a reason in all it's your decision but even if god doesn't exist what do the people that beloved lose but if he does the treasure awaits them in heaven you have nothing to loose by believing I love and respect god :) but I sometimes have dout

You can believe what you want. Doesn't matter what others thoughts are about it. And it's part of a reason why I'm not too intouch with specific religion because too much arguments of who's right and wrong. so I'm in the middle. I love God and believe in him that's all that matters

It must be debated because if atheism is accepted by all, God will effectively "die". Those of faith will never allow this to happen.

The fact that many religious folk keep trying to push their religious beliefs into our science classrooms and hamper scientific progress through denial, poor education, and legislation means we have to fight about it.

If people actually kept their religious beliefs to themselves no one would need to argue over these issues.

Religion is stubborn and will never let go of taking mythology literally no matter how times it's disproven. Mythology and science contradict each other all the time. Also, it doesnt help when a book like the bible actually tells you to go out an make it your goal to convert people. That's why they will never mix well. Anyone who actually cares what is true and what's not will argue and debate to find out. If we just give up on that and say "hey, let's just stop arguing and be friends", then we will have to stop critiquing to find what is actually true and what's not.

I agree! I'm always on here saying that God created the earth but He did it through science. Instead of finding common ground I usually get attacked from both sides of the argument haha!

There are only three basis of authority God, you, or someone you admire. God gave us his word, the infallible, plenary verbally inspired word of God, the bible. So you can choose who you will believe or follow. As for me I choose to believe God and His word. Any of the other choices simply make you god or someone else your god.

I see what you are saying. Science is starting to find some truths about the Bible now days. They are farely sure they found Sodom, they have found chariots deep in the red sea. When God took his cover off of Jobe for Satan to test or torment, 38 chapters later of course God gets a hold of Jobe and asked him why he isnt defending himself as a child of God, then it breaks into God showing him how powerful, creative, and his vast knowledge of how he created. If you read it and think about it, both your troubles are answered. Mans knoweledge is scarce compared to the creator of everything. Hope that helps

Where did you hear this about chariots in the Red Sea? Outside of a few die hard Christians they've given up on searching for evidence of the exodus. 2.5 million people traveling in the desert for 70 years should have left something, but there is nothing.

The chariots on a documenery and not sure what you are speaking of about Exodus?
Report as
I'm referring to the fact that not one piece of evidence (including chariots in the red sea) has been found that 2.5 million hebrews ever left egypt, and wandered through the wilderness.

You don't need a substance to believe there's a god. Why do need something to believe there's a god.

because some people believe that religion and spiritual paths are either right or wrong, and many people have "i am right you are wrong" mentality. i am very glad you are not one of these people, because you will attract more positivity in your life that way :)

that's where you're wrong god did not create the world through science. There wasn't even science when the world began. And no heaven is real and so is hell. If you really love God then why are you saying that he is a scientists? Haven't you read your bible? God is the alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the messiah and Jehovah, king of kings and lord of lords. He is also the mighty one, the Emmanuel. But most importantly he is the father to all Christianity. The bible does not mention 1 thing about god being a scientists. Believe in god and he will do whatever you shall ask. He will give you more understanding in this world.If Muslims believe in idols let them, for you will know the truth at the end of this world.
