    If there is no "Master Designer" or something greater than this universe then how did existance come to be? How is it that the Earth just so happens to be perfectly placed the right amount of distance from the sun for life to exist? That the gravity pull is the right amount for life to exist on Earth? Do you honestly think it all came from a random explosion? Let me ask you this. Is it possible to be sitting in your living room and have a horse just suddenly appear in front of you? NO! Same goes for this. The Earth and its universe had to have came from a greater being. Just like the theory of Spontaneous Generation was disproved. LIVING CANNOT COME FROM NON-LIVING. I believe in the big bang theory. Yes some explosion had to occur to create all of this, but the explosion was created/caused by a greater figure-one that had the power to make everything so precise and perfect for our existance.

      Relativity disproved the big bang over a century go and so science does not believe in a genisis of explosion. In modern Cosmology the leading means to Genesis comes through a vacuum fluctuation. (ie QM)

      John, stow your pathetic pretenses. You wouldn't know a vacuum fluctuation if it orthonormalized your own flaccid Hamiltonian.

      No proof whatsoever of any degree, any employment, or anything else, Tard.

      When are you going to produce some?

      By the way, I'm Queen Elizabeth II. Now bow before me, you little peon.

    • Perry

      Umm, John, Halliday and Resnick won't get you far into advanced quantum mechanics, and nor will an introductory course. Let's put your claims and your depth of understanding to the test. Explain in your own words what quantum fluctuations are, with reference to certain operators, and then explain how that leads specifically to the biblical version of genesis.

      -but be careful. If you succeed with that, you will be the first person ever to do so.

      The earth has places on it where life struggles constantly to survive, it is not perfect, life has had to adapt to the conditions provided for it. The earth has things about it that are conducive to life taking a hold on it, but it is by no means a slam dunk.

      Hey, Tardver, "it's" is a contraction for "it is". "Its" is a possessive.

    Even though we knowtoday that species occur rapidly following a ass extinction, the opposite of Nye's understanding of science, there remains the oxymoron of rapid, or random mutation evolution Dr. Gould's work in the area of random mutation evolution was very popular until the human genome project proved that Dog is Man's closest genome relatve. We know today that random mutation evolution points to Dag as man's progenitor and Evolutionists are by their own claim SOBs.

      Well even if what you said were true, that still doesn't keep strong-minded people from seeing right through the lies of politicians and salesmen that have been selling religion to people since the beginning of mankind. That's why I say agnosticism is the best approach when it comes to deities. And atheism is the best approach when it comes to all religion. We are stunting the intellectual potential of our children when we lie to them about all the unfounded, conflicted religions of the world.

    • Victor

      Let me start off by saying I believe in God. That said, hasn't it ever struck any of you as odd that scores of people had gods thousands of years before Yahweh presented himself to Abraham? If Yahweh is the one and only true god, how did these other people come up with the idea of god before anyone knew he existed? We're not talking about a wheel or a flying machine here. The idea of a supernatural deity isn't exactly the kind of thing you could predict, is it?

      I used to think that if you didn't believe in anything, you had no substance. The past 30 years of watching religious people turn their brains off for God has changed my mind. I find comfort in the company of atheists nowadays. My beliefs won't change, even with my brain running full bore. That's what faith is.

      Richard that is a very simply stated question. But it is a very complex one that no one can answer. I believe he does exist. But if I am right and no one can answer how he came to be, or answer many other simple questions that are based on the assumption there is no God how does anyone here have the arrogance to think that they know more than me or anyone else. Yet there are many here that are very disrespectful. I can wish "or pray"that everybody here would be more tolerant and respectful of others who do not agree or maybe understand their views. Science is young as are we. Maybe one day it will "prove" God exist, then a hundred years later "prove he doesn't.

    Where is the evidence for the evolutionary theory? Much of science is theoretical. Pure science is proven by observation of fact. The vast majority of people accept theory as fact. Is it a fact that you evolved from a lower form of life and can therefor excuse your behavior? Send your children off to war for they have no hope anyway. They'll grow up just like their parents. Ashes to ashes and dust to dust. True faith is not based on credulity like the "Theory of Evolution." Compare your theory to Hebrews chapter eleven and then do your own research to establish fact from fable.

    I know evolution to be factual, but I also believe everyone has a right to believe otherwise. What I don't understand is why a difference of opinion is only acceptable if that difference supports your own belief.
    I am an agnostic yet I support Christianity (the teachings of Christ) and try to live my life accordingly. For those who love this great country, understand this, the Declaration of Independence proclaims that "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness".
    If we ever get to the time that we believe our life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness was not given to us by a higher power then these rights will be determined by mankind. These rights are what has preserved our liberty and made this the greatest country on earth.
    It doesn't matter if you or I believe in a higher power, do not tamper with the greatness of this country, and respect the beliefs of others that you don't understand. The belief in Creationism is vital to the existence of this country as we know it even if you don't agree with it.

  8. Question

    If you're a scientist why claim there is not Creator? Isn't the job of a scientist to try to prove that something exists. I don't like to hear a "Creator" isn't real or "only exsists in your head" you don't know, you can't know. You have no scientific proof to discredit a creator, so why not respect someone elseโ€™s hypothesis, instead of being pretentious.

      Einstein claimed in 1927 that Relativity and Quantum Mechanics prove that "a sentient being outside the universe is required to make the universe real". This idea was very unpopular to Einstein's.NAZI counterparts who claimed that "there are an infinite number of parallel universes"; based in the notion that probabilities are deterministic. John Bell proved that probabilities are not deterministic and removed the scientific basis opposing Einstein's proof of God.

    • tallulah13

      Do you believe in unicorns and dragons as well? The reason why some say that there is no god is because there isn't a single shred of evidence to support the existence of any god, and indeed a preponderance of evidence to show that the universe and this world were formed by very natural processes.

      There have been thousands of gods worshiped by humans throughout history. If there is indeed a supreme being, there is no reason at all to believe that it would be the Abrahamic god.

    Few creationists believe that the six days of creation were six 24-hour days. Most of these self-proclaimed scientists have no idea what creationism stands for and are very adept at knocking over a straw man which exists ony in their own mind.

      I've heard that there are several versions of this. Some people insist that the earth was created in 6 'literal' days, since that's what they imagine the Bible says and they have to believe the 'literal truth' of their Holy Book.

      But all of these versions have one thing in common, that it's all about us. What conceit.

  11. John

    Here's the way I see it. I believe in God. And, I believe that the study of science will only help us understand God, who is the architect of science and nature, better as we learn more. We can see the evidence of the creation of the universe in astronomy, archeology, and various other studies. The evidence indicates that creation is much older than what we would expect from reading the Bible, but I do believe the Bible is the record God wants us to have as a moral compass. No one 6,000 years ago could have conceived of the persective of the universe we have today, so God allowed them to have their belief system to keep them faithful. Now we can see so much more than then. Now if you asked me if the God that created the universe could have formed an earth complete with a mysterious archeological record, I say, "yep".

      For thousands of years, humanity has been searching for "god". You'd think we would have found something by now, even a tiny trace, if there were indeed a supernatural supreme being.

    Science thinks more of itself than it ought. The Theory of Evolution is counter intuitive, it promotes the concept that life can arise spontaneously (or perhaps guided by aliens as in Directed Panspermia) from inorganic material. I thought that Pasture put the nail in that coffin more than 100 years ago. Alexander Redi actually disproved spontaneous generation two centuries prior to Pasture, but it took "science" two centuries to accept it. The time debate is a red herring. Molecules cannot become men without divine intervention on some level no matter how much time is involved. If you have a creation, logic (and causality) infer a Creator or Intelligent Designer. That and the bait and switch technique of offering adaptation as evidence for molecules-to-men Darwinian evolution is another problem that seems to be left unaddressed.

      Evolution took a long time, that would be billions of years. Think now about how quickly the flu virus mutates. There is beauty, wonder in awe in the evolution process, this is not taken away, but the facts do appear to remain compelling that we certainly did not come into existence 10,000 years ago.

      The theory of evolution is about the way life changes over time. It is not about life jumping out of inorganic compounds.

    • JR

      Bill Nye is a teacher of science. He has had TV series that are geared toward various aged youth and provided millions with knowledge. He's fun when teaching as well. I myself enjoyed watching him. Why should we care. Just like listening to anyone else whom you might respect he's a thoughtful, caring individual who only wants a peaceful and full filled society. So as a caring member of society he speaks out.

      More should speak out against ignorance and those who would suppress select knowledge because it does not fit with a belief system to which one might subscribe. In science conclusions, hypothesis, rules, are presented and proven as fact through experimentation . While matters of the heart and soul may be more etherial and require belief one must be very careful not to impose a belief system (which can not be scientifically proved) on another because there is no autoritative way to verify the truth or confirm the statement. Scripture is in all belief system so one really can not claim a select scripture as definitive proof.

      So it seems he was saying is lets make sure we teach science (with science targeted funds) and not a specific belief system, of which there are many, because it does not meet the requirements to be called a science.

Its fine of you want to believe that the world is 10,000 years old despite the contrary but to those of us who deal in facts its just silliness. Teaching children to ignore whats right before their eyes and to believe is in something that simply has not foundation in facts is to do them a disservice. Religion has its place but its not science nor the truth, its something that people believe, that does not make it fact or someone elses truth.

    Negativity has nothing to do with ignorance it has to do with the lack of knowledge. Negativity is not talking about facts vs beliefs its just being honest about the facts.

      Actually that's entirely false. What is true is this:

      Agnostic Atheism is Healthy for Kids and Grown-Ups Too!

      It's really best for all people including children to have an agnostic approach to god, and an atheistic approach to all religion. It keeps things simple for kids, and let's them be all that they can be. They just need to be taught that some things, like all religion, are just made up by salesmen and politicians from long ago; and that other things, like god, we really don't know a damn thing about.

      Atheists have strong minds, and don't run and hide their misdeeds within their religion (and by doing so, disserving society).

      So instead of praying to make-believe people, get a good cup of tea and go on and sit down and collect your damn thoughts. My goodness.

    Not taking sides here kids but it is the "theory" of evolution. Ya gotta prove it for it to be a fact

      Pythagorean Theorem is called a theory, as is Universal Gravitation and Special Relativity. Read a book

      Its a theory in the same way gravity is a theory. We have a reasonably good idea of how it worked, works, and will work, but we are still learning and refining the nuances of the theory. The only thing you can ever "prove" is mathematics, science will always consist of theories because our understanding doesn't include a testable occurrence in envy single possible environment or situation. We have theories about how gravity works on Jupiter, but it isn't PROVEN because we haven't actually sent probes to every spot on Jupiter and tested it.

      Learn how science works and learn what words mean before you try to speak against it or use them.

      The "theory" part isn't about whether it occurred, or is occurring today. The scientists don't dispute that. The theorizing is all about how it works, what drives it, and how we can use what we learn to make medicines, vaccines and other benefits. If you ever got a flu shot, or antibiotic then you've benefitted from evolution science, so stop being a hypocrite.

      Forgot to ask any creationists why we would even need new flu shots or antibiotics if bacteria and viruses weren't evolving?

      Darwin had to invent his own "sciientific method" in order for Evolution to ever be called a "theory". Today modern biology knows that the "ant study" is not a pillar of science . Nye is a fool, like so many of the cult of evolution.

      "Not taking sides here kids but it is the "theory" of evolution".

      And I suppose you believe that the existence of god is a fact. The existence of god couldn't even be classified as a theory. It's more like a hypothesis, an idea or proposition with little or no evidence to support it (in this case none). To use your words, "Ya gotta prove it for it to be a fact". Don't feel bad if you can't produce any evidence to support the existence of god, however, no one else can either.

      Aaron- From Relativity science knows that Graity is Mass bending Time, but Darwin's notional hypothesis fails the "scientific method" to be a theory. (ie experimenatally demonstrable and repeatable)

      Sayingitdoesnotmakeittrue – Please educate yourself on the term 'theory' and how its used in science. You just dropped your pants in front of the class. Total embarrassment for you.

      Sayingitdoesnotmakeittrue:

      Go take a basic science course. You obviously have no idea what a 'theory' is as it is used in science. I am so sick to death of this utter ignorance. That when you walk outside you will not float up into the sky is a theory. That your body is made up of cells is a theory. A 'theory' is not a hypothesis or a wild guess, it is the gold standard. How do you function being so singularly stupid?

      I am glad someone explained the use of the word the theory. But although the evidence supports it, it still means we don't know for sure or is that thought to simplistic? Not sarcasm but a genuine question.
