As a Methodist who majored in biology and worked in labs where religion bashing was a daily phenomenon, I truly appreciate this quote. I fully believe in the Big Bang and evolution, but I've always liked to think that these events were just too random to occur without a little push from something greater. That's just my opinion, and I respect anyone else's whether I agree with their point of view or not.

They still coinflict... what happens when Lawrence Krauss, probably one of the most notable physicists of our time, writes a book called A Universe from Nothing, arguing through science, why there is something rather than nothing, and needs no deity to be the first cause.

That kind of hurts the idea that god had sex with a virgin and gave birth to himself don't you think?

Inb4 stfu atheist scum, since these posts are always full of angry Christians wielding red thumbs... Just think about this fact.
I can't really be arsed to care what you believe at the moment, I'm just saying as a piece of advice, it is not the last time science and reason cross the path of religion... You will at times have to choose where to put your faith.
Though I haven't read it, I can recommend it through friends, it aught to make a pretty good case using arguments that are hard to contest.

well yes, you can have faith in a god and accept evolution, there is nothing wrong with that whatsoever.
The problem however (just from a logical and ,well, fact based standpoint) is trying to have evolution and CURRENT "ABRAHAMIC REALIGION". If you are to believe those books you must either accept that God either lied about things like : the age of the world, animals being designed they way they are now at the moment of creation, man not evolving from subtypes of apes etc. or that evolution is completely wrong.
That's just basic logic, so yes you can easily believe in a gOd, no problem, but when you try to bring in a religion where GODS WORDS is non-compatible with volution, you're going to have a problem:)

Are you idiots actually trying to justify your believes on what you see on a tv-show?

Futurama did the same kind of thing. Futurama suggested that a universe begins from an intelligence, but then develops entirely on its own. It's an explanation that makes the most sense. Imagine starting a colony of bacteria. You don't know what's going to happen. You can barely see them. You certainly can't communicate with them. Nor can you affect each individual directly.

I really want a gif of that part in southpark

I used to believe in both but that doesn't make much sense either, the way I see it is, why would an all powerful God use something like evolution to create us, shouldn't he be able to do it much faster and more efficient? The only way a god would make sense to me is if he just created the universe and that's it; he didn't have a part in anything else. I dunno.

Why not use evolution? I'm sure that there are an exponential number of other ways to accomplish complex life that we couldn't possibly understand, but evolution may be the way it occurred.

I was always told that he did it to prove true faith and shun the nonbelievers.

What nonbelievers? Did he make other sentient beings besides his angels?

I love south park ! Anyways, I believe that there is a god of some sort, and that he is responsible for the big bang, and he allowed the universe to evolve on its own. Matter cannot just be created or destroyed, i just think there has to be a meaning or something more to all of this, a purpose to why we're all here. I like my idea because i believe in evolution but i still believe in god. I find it somewhat logical, but i still have faith, i also do not take part in religion vs science debates either since i think i can believe in a bit of both

Sure, you can have both. but obviously this person decided that both didn't cut it, and has chosen to stick purely to science, instead of science and religion.

weird I know but I think it's a perfectly legit choice.

It never tried to be the why...

Evolution IS the answer to how, it canĀ“t be the answer to "why" because it is a biologic argument that intends describes the processes of change of biological populations over generations, not "why we are here", "what is the purpose of our existence", etc.

Sadly there are no reasons to belive there is a "why". Yet.

If you like SF, I'd suggest reading Arthur C. Clarke's Rama series. (Four books in total)
In it he gives a rather nice answer to 'why.'


Basically, by the end of the last book, it is reveled that 'God' created multiple universes and collects and examines the life in these universes in search of a 'universal harmony'.

Some scientists began experimenting to see if we're actually an extremely detailed computer simulation being carried out by a future generation for the purpose of research.

That would be an interesting answer to "why?"
