Hey, all.


Before you read this, please note that I tend to form my own opinion about everything, and not what everyone else tries to force down my throat. Religion, drugs, sex, science, music, television, the Internet, and many more touchy topics. Also keep in mind I'm not trying to change anyone's belief. Now that we've got that out of the way, let us begin with todays topic: religion.


Recently, I've been reading books talking about Evolution, String Theory, and Light Energy. It's pretty amazing stuff. I mean, just imagine that we are all connected as one thing: Energy. What is smaller than atoms? Energy. What're our thoughts made out of? Energy.


Now listen. Humans being created by tiny micro-organisms slowly evolving into primates, which, through genetic problems and injuries, formed into what we look like now, seems more likely then a cosmic being in the sky, sending down his son which, for some reason, had to DIE so that idiot Americans can get drunk on Saturday night and beat their wife, then ask for forgiveness. But no worries, he comes back three days later. (Which, by the way, defines him as a zombie.)


C'mon folks, what proof DO we have that there is a GOD? I'm keeping my mind open, but I just want fellow TeenInk members to view this so that they may be able to do more research and form their own opinion.

I suppose many people have not had the same evidence I've had for God. It's a personal journey for those who truly and sincerely desire to know Him. I have heard His voice, seen Him heal, had Him tell me things I had no way of knowing and then had them confirmed. there are some pretty crazy prophecies in the Bible too (predicting peoples names 600 years before they were born is intense...), plus the testimonies of so many other people throughout history its crazy. then there's nature. looking at a cell looks more like looking at a machine than anything else. machines have designers. I don't have enough faith to belief it was all chance. but the most overwhelming evidence for me personally (it wont do anything for you unfortunately) is the change I have seen in my own heart, the comfort I have received whenever I need it, and the insane crazy love that has on occasion brought me to tears of joy. I don't believe love just comes out of no where.

That's exactly what I mean! I think the two theories can coexist.

Good subject, it was well writen. It could have been longer considering the subject. And it kind of stunned me when you asked that infamous question " is there prove that there is a god". I'm not one of them but some people are really going to have something to say about that.

not quite sure what you meant? Did you mean that the Big Bang theory is true but it was God that set it in motion or did you mean something intirley different?

I'm not a Jehovah Witness, I'm a Baptist Chris.tian. What I'm really annoyed with is when people are ingorant in the Word of God. You know, if you don't like my veiw then leave me be. Why comment on what I say? I only comment just to defend myself. If you ever get onto youtube, check Terra Firma, by Mychildren Mybride. Really people, leave me be. Now I say this, scr*w science! Keep it only for curing cancer and diseases, but it can never explain human life! Science lies as much as lucifer lies.

If you think about it, one god makes plenty of sense.  not the BEST illustration, but think of it as "one ring to rule them all."  that one ring was the strongest.  all the other 'little' rings were weaker and faded away.

I believe in God, but I don't believe what Jehovah's Witnesses believe.  I hope you don't base your opinion of religion that is based on a God on what you are annoyed with in one denomination.

I agree with you, expecially i don't think you should be allowed to preach things with no scientific proof, but this would have come through better with the fundementalist sides if you hadn't used the offensiveness, even if it might have been relevent.

We'd leave religion alone, if religions would leave us alone, but you know how many Jehova Witnesses come to my door every year!

Good article, but you have one problem: yes there is science that can prove some things in this universe. But I tend to DO believe in God. I added my two cents to this debate. Don't agree with me, just leave me alone. That's all I have to say.

Nice, short and to the point, it would be better though if it made a little sence. For example you said that we are all made of energy. Well, believe it or not, energy has an orgin and where would that orgin be? Do a little research and find out why it doenst make sence!

Ratonality demands that all physical objects has an explaination for existance, the only thing proposed by man that can explain that is not physcial is spiritual. God is spiritual; therefore, it is rational to believe God expains (exists).

If you agree with evolution you probably agree with the Big Bang theory, which says that there was no universe until a reaction happened and all matter in existence was formed. But where did the matter come from to start the reaction the MADE all matter? The only answer can be God. I don't know if that made sense, but I have a submission going up explaining more in detail. Check out my work! But thanks for writing this. It was still good!

"Test everything. Hold on to the good." -Paul of Tarsus (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

there are many persuasive and good arguments for the Existence of God. as well as very good historical arguments for the resurrection of Jesus.

your kinda asking a loaded question by saying "What proof do u have".

if u wanna discuss, email me, or ya can go to theologyweb.com and register an account at their forum (and christians there are are actually rational and intellectual, and dont say dumbass thigns like "i believe in god cuz i feel him in my heart").

thanks for readin ;)
