: An absoluetly stupid point of discussion. : The possibility exists in both directions; there : may or may not be a "God." Getting in an argument : over it is moot. There is absolutely no answer. : Throw all mathmatical equations you can, throw all : theories about the universe you can. I think it : is the feeling of being in the universe that drives : the believers to continue believing and the : arrogance of the astornomers and people of the : sort that keep this argument alive. : What a waste of time to even to begin to discuss : this. God has to exist. The universe will never end : but keep recycling. So I will take the middle of : the road.

You mentioned that there is no answer to the question, "does God exist?" Sorry, you're dead wrong. And that's a silly statement. Sometimes I get excited when I get going on an idea, but I usually avoid gross errors of that proportion. Of course the question of whether or not God exists has an answer. It is either yes, or no. It just may be though that it is not the kind of answer you can find in a test-tube, or a lengthy mathematical proof. It is a more intuitive process than scientific. And the fact that God can't be proven scientifically doesn't mean any- one is silly for believing in Him. In truth, science can't even prove that Abraham Lincoln ever existed. That's a problem for an area known as legal-historical problem solving.
