You only assume, baseless question.
Worth no answer.


Many skeptics are doubtful about Bible,
but they never feel doubt on themselves.
They assume their "doubt" is correct.

The facts about Bible is plentiful, immense historical facts.
Cosmology, points out that the universe has an origin.
But, they could not explain what is this Singularity? How does it come into existence?

Science, at the end of the day, Assume and Believe it is so and so.

Most scientists, they simply give figures.


There are 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

My logic dictates that there has to be many different organisms on many different planets.

I can't prove that but no one can prove that there is absolutely nothing out there, either!
To the contrary, how is it that the earth is not merely accomodating to life, but replete with so many various forms of life, and yet not one iota of life has been discovered elsewhere, however painstakingly people hope to find it? The purpose of earth is to serve as the home of every living material organism.

I really love those sorts of arguments. They definitely show maturity and in-depth knowledge of the matter in question.


sigh, when you thought ShaanAli was annoying in his circular logic....

You never really seek God, you ignore the facts he provided, and you reject his love.
Therefore you will never find the Truth.

This is just Assumption, they are not counting it one by one.
Yeah, and the Earth is Flat.

Nitpicking a new science with new tools does not impress this member much. Not being a senior member like you though, I might be missing something, being only a uneducated Tattooed Linux using Biker.

I see a lot a common sense lacking in some members posts here though, mixed in with antagonistic emotion when they are faced with facts. Which sounds familiar to this member who spent Grade School in a parochial school. It makes a believer nervous and they spout all kinds of incoherent statements when one
challenges their belief support system with known facts and all of a sudden they start to nitpick.

It's early yet. The more the tools get better. The more we know, Get used to it. Or not.

Most likely, none of us will ever find the truth, but at least some of us are trying.
