: Beelzebub: : Is there anybody who can give me an argument for the existence of a deity, which I can not disprove easily?

: Greg: : The fact that all of the Universe Evolves, first through the elemental form in the stellar furnace, then through the formation of organic molecules, the clay of life, into life itself evolving towards awareness, and then, through biological evolution towards Self-Awareness.

: The fact that all life is made from the elemental substance of the universe itself, and that it is all evolving towards life, means that the entire universe has the potential to acquire Self-Aware Consciousness.

: Add to that the fact that the Law of Gravity, the first Law of Physics Created in the first second of the Big-Bang, is the weakest of all the Laws of Physics, but the very one which will contain the expansion of the Big-Bang, giving the universe the utmost opportunity to expand, create New Life, and Evolve Towards Self-Aware Consciousness.

: When you also consider that everything we have ever come to know as Truth, we have learned from the very nature of the universe itself, and that Nature teaches us to be beneficial, not detrimental, to life and the environment, through positive and negative reinforcement, the indication of the involvement of Divine Intelligence becomes rather obvious to anyone with eyes to see.

bzrd here: Most of you are probably aware of the underlying argument that lies beneath the surface of the creation/evolution debate. Most, if not all, of the religions that involve polytheism, are founded on the premise that man resides at the "pinnacle" of creation; and in someway we are evolving to a higher state of being or awareness. Hence, it is not suprising that most of you are enamored with the notion that there is no God, and are free to live your lives unfettered by the thought of a final judgement. There is an interesting parallel to this in the first few chapters of Genesis that involves a certain tree and a serpent. It is very clear in my mind who is behind it.
