Re: Infinite universe?

"Be on guard against giving interpretations of Scripture that are farfetched or opposed to science, and so exposing the Word of God to the ridicule of unbelievers." St. Augustine
I like this. And agree I do. :wave:

Re: Infinite universe?

I do disagree with much of what you've put up here. I think if you were serious about your assertions you could post some sources instead of appealing to unnamed authorities and asserting positions that frankly, I know not to be true in terms of the consensus of the field in approaching the singula...

Re: Infinite universe?

Hi guys It is ages that I am not around (and honestly I don't think I will be around for a long time this time either). I just wish to point out (and I am quite informed in the field) that: 1) Big Bang theory is a model in general relativity (GR). So according to GR our universe necessarily started ...

The arrogance comes when people are willing to claim they have enough knowledge to deny God's existence!
... or when people are willing to claim we are smart enough to provide empirical, rational and scientific evidences that it exists.

Let me add another point to Bgood reply. There is *another* independent way of determining junk DNA besides the one mentioned by BGood. If you consider a DNA sequence and compare the omologous sequence from different individuals some small differences are expected, as BGood mentioned. By many observ...

If there is an infinite ominpotent,omniscient, omnipresent, spiritual God , then this GOD would have to be able to interact (either directly or indirectly) with the physical world Agreed. I am not saying that I don't believe God *can* interafct with the physical world. I simply do not believe it *d...

I'm having a hard time understanding what you're saying. Why would God be forced to do anything? He could just as well leave us to our own devices but in his infinite wisdom and love he reveals himself to us, subtly through natural wonders (including science), and more directly through the Bible, p...

I think in other threads a misunderstanding has shown about what I meant by creation. I said I believe in a spiritual God. As I said I do not believe in a physical acting god. I probably should add that I do believe that the universe "is divine creation". This could seem contradicting the belief tha...

Let me list some facts which are in my opinion quite well established. 2) The Earth formed about 4.5-4 BY ago. Life first evidences are about 3.5 BY ago. This means that life emerged on Earth in less than 1BY. This also provide a constrain to which materialistic explanations should be excluded. If f...

Abiogenesis. Science and/or faith

This thread splits from http://discussions.godandscience.org/viewtopic.php?p=44269#44269 The aim is to collect and scrutinize different scenarios for abiogenesis in science and faith. The original discussion was with Byblos while of course others are welcome to add comments. I think we can start by ...

just wanna add that in my view the spiritual world is similar (in fact one instance of) Kant's synthetic a priori judgments. http://www.philosophypages.com/hy/5f.htm As such they are in some sense more fundamental than the physical reality. Precisely in that sense they live in human mind, though the...

A god that has not created anything and who cannot interact with the physical world is not much of a god to me. I know we disagree on that. And it is fine to me 'cos there is no need for me we agree on that (while I would like we come to some sort of agreement about purely scientific issues). To be...

At first glance I believe the same things you believe though I suppose with a quite different meaning of each word... :) Let's see... There are not many independent sources about a man called Jesus lived in Palestine around year 0. I think there are only a couple of references fron roman authors. Ho...

I was asked to summarize my position about faith. This thread is open to comments by anybody and I will try to reply to the comments for better rendering my position. Honestly I don't think a real discussion would be appropriate about this issue. As I will say I think faith is a matter of personal r...

Who decides if something is nearer to science or not? Who decides if someone is right or wrong? It is either there or it's not. I don't particularly care how 'close' you are. My answer is that we all decide each by himself what is right and wrong. I suppose this is the result of Eve action. ;) Then...
