1: The Golden Rectangle
           

God is revealed in many ways, one being through nature. The golden rectangle is a shape that starts as one big rectangle. Then a line is drawn from side to side at exactly one third the length of said rectangle. This proses is repeated with the smaller rectangle multiple times. Once that is finished, a perfectly symmetrical curve is drawn from corner to corner until you reach the smallest box. This shape can be seen throughout creation in almost anything, from sunflowers to nautilus shells.

2: Historical Evidence
           

If you look at how many original copies found of ancient writings, you will find that the New Testament is the most accurate source of knowledge in the world.

2a: the earliest copy found was made fairly recently considering when it is thought to be written.

2b: the estimated timespan for writing it is fairly short.

2c: there have been almost twenty-five-thousand copies found throughout the world, and all of them say pretty much the same thing..

2d: many different books support the facts in the New Testament/Bible.

3: Personal Experience
God has saved me and my family multiple times, sometimes from bad habits or choices, to saving our lives. In July of 2018, my older sister was getting ready to return home from being a counselor at a Christian summer camp. She wanted to go with three of our friends, but our mom said no, even though they were well trusted and close friends. She did not go along with them, but as the three friends were pulling out of the camp, a truck hit the back door on the driver’s side of the car. The door along with the trunk where crushed. If someone was in sitting in that seat, they would have surly died. One of my friends was in the opposite seat with all of the bedding and suitcases in-between him and the left-hand door, saving his life. If My mother had said “yes” to my sister going with our friends, I would have lost my sister and/or one of my friends that day. Because of God stirring my mom’s heart to say no, my older sister and my best friends are still alive today.

4: Science and God
Science cannot exist or advance without God. People use stuff like the Big Bang “Theory” to explain the universe without God, even though there is not enough evidence to support that Hypothesis. God made the universe, there is no denying it. There is absolutely no way that the cosmos was formed by the big bang hypothesis! There is literally a one in 10 to the power of 10 to the power of 123, that is 1 followed by 10 to the 123rd power zeros chance that it actually happened! (This probability was calculated by a professor from Oxford University).

Is that seriously all you got? Follow up question, are you the same person who made the profile @gayboy? If you are, you are being way to desperate to try and pick on me.

It's fine @Luna_Amaris, I love discussions and debates like this as well, because it gives me a chance to learn more, refine my arguments, and realize any false facts I may have stumbled upon but hadn't realized. I have to respectfully disagree about errors in The Bible, I feel like it is the spoken word of God, written down by mankind as a guide for your faith. The Bible isn't just for learning about God, because the more you read it with intension of finding something, you will more than likely find those answers. On top of that, you also learn more about your identity as you read the Bible.

But real quick, I have a little something I want you to try. Read Ephesians chapters 1-2, underline what God says about himself, and circle what he says about you. I did this literally last night at my Campus Life group, and it was powerful. You don't have to try it, I just thought I would tell you about it.

I appreciate that! I'm honestly surprised I didn't get censored for saying something like that....well not going to complain!
Yeah....but it's good to keep in mind that The Bible doesn't necessarily have to be correct all the time. What was written down was the common theory at the time, and doesn't have to be the truth and nothing but the truth, though of course it is filled with bits of truth, human error is still possible. That's why Christianity (specifically Catholicism, going into maybe-this-is-only-me-cause-I'm-Catholic territory) has traditions and prayer to speak directly with God instead of going through a "messenger" of sorts. If that makes any sense. Sorry, I love explaining my faith and debating cause I ramble a lot, hope I did something useful/said something interesting!
(I'm awkward...)

You do make a good point @Luna_Amaris, and I gave that consideration when writing this. But, I remembered that Genesis 1:1-2 says, "1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters." Which means God created the earth before the sun, and that the waters of the earth were made before the land. The Big Bang Theory states the opposite. But, thank you for your comment!

Just wanna say, the Big Bang Theory follows Genesis to a tee. "Let there be light!" is referring to that! If anyone says anything otherwise, the Theory was proposed by a Catholic (branch of Christianity) seminarian/someone studying to be a priest/pastor. Thank you for reading; have an amazing day! ^ ^
