I'll have to find the motivation again later ;)

Basically I agreed with a few things you said, i.e. science can't prove beyond doubt how the world was created but it doesn't claim to, either. It only puts forward theories that are currently supported by the evidence on hand. Science also cannot disprove the hand of a superior being in all of this. There are many scientists with religious beliefs.

Where I disagree with you is your interpretation of the big bang theory, which I think you've oversimplified, especially with regards to your argument on why all animals would look the same and the DNA would be universal.

Again, my lack of belief in a god isn't based on science but rather as a result of a philosophical conflict that I see with the whole idea.

I agree that I oversimplified it. Again let common sense prevail.

In the ice age, we agree that there was more than one type of dinosaur with more than one type of plant.

Scientists also say that the continents as we know them today was all one. lets for arguments sake agree it was ( as said before)

Now there's  questions before the big bang thats not answered.

 Where did the animals come from that were there before the bang?

Did ONLY man not exist at that time? Or was there some sort of man already.

Again lets take that as true.

Now the bang happens.

All live came to and end.

Man evolved from whatever. And the animals? Plants? plants maybe as seed could be buried/stored for a long time before growing again.

Then where is there other theory that man grew out of the ape.

There are 2 versions  (and you could go check) of the scientists explanation. Some say there was man during the time of the dinosaur ( before the bang), some say man evolved after the bang.

Which is which.


Again, my lack of belief in a god isn't based on science but rather as a result of a philosophical conflict that I see with the whole idea.

Please understand that I am not trying you to change your belief, only you can do it. I am merely putting forward my beliefs and my argument as to how and why I believe.
