Why do we believe in God?

 

For the most part, Creationists just haven't taken the time to open a science book. Most have the audacity to claim that Evolution is just a "theory". Which, ironically, they are right. If they actually knew what a scientific theory is, then they would understand that a theory is not the same thing as a guess.

A scientific theory summarizes a hypothesis or group of hypotheses that have been supported with repeated testing. A theory is valid as long as there is no evidence to dispute it; so theoretically, it is possible to dispute a theory if you are able to disprove the hypothesis or group of hypotheses with real observations.

So the creationist should first find evidence that disproves the evolution theory before they can make any claim that Evolution is false. What creationists must understand that in order to disprove Evolution, they have to disprove countless of tested hypothesis that support Evolution.

Creationism doesn't have real science (evidence) to support it, its just a collection of guesses that are fueled by old superstitions.To this day the Creationist hypothesis has not ben awarded the title of a scientific theory. Evolution is a theory, creationism is not; its just a belief. Faith, by it's definition, means to accept something as true without proof. That is where Science and Faith stand divided.

I read great analogy that can further explain to you what a theory is:

Hypothesis: All swans must be white.
Observation: Every swan I've ever seen is white. 
Test: A random sampling of swans from each continent where swans are indigenous produces only white swans.
Publication: "My global research has indicated that swans are always white, wherever they are observed."
Verification: Every swan any other scientist has ever observed in any country has always been white.
Theory: All swans are white.


 
 

This always makes me laugh. When religious people try to "prove" that God exists, by pointing to the Bible. There are people out there who truly believe the Bible's interpretation of the creation of our world (Creationism). Please, I advise to everyone, if you already haven't done so, go read the first few chapters of the first book (Genesis) of the Bible.

It says a lot of nutty things, but one must stop and come to the rational conclusion that this is nothing but a story, a myth, something that was made up by people. A man sat down and wrote this story. No one was there to record these events as facts. It was a story to help explain the unexplainable; our existence. Religious people have to understand that the Bible cannot explain our creation.

Modern science began after Galileo's discoveries, a thousand years after the last of the New testament's books were written. There is a long gap between the time when the bible was written to modern science. We now know more things than we did back then. One of these things is that the world is much older than 6,000 years old. We also now know that we live on a round planet that is floating in outer space and is moving very rapidly around a giant ball of fire (sun). If modern science cannot explain the beginning of our existence, how can people believe the crazy stories written by people who knew nothing of modern science? What makes the Bible so credible?
