I'll scoot over and let you guys have at it. It's a fun read.
"No ray of sunshine is ever lost, but the green which it awakes into existence needs time to sprout, and it is not always granted to the sower to see the harvest. All work that is worth anything is done in faith." - Albert Schweitzer
Well, seeing as how we both remain superficially unconvinced, I suppose now we should both examine the data. You can flip through the Biology textbooks and journals of the National Academy of Sciences while I grab a Bible.
This thread is now 37 pages long, and it still boils down to this:
One side has some hard evidence.
The other side has none.
And people can drift in and out talking about 'other ways of thinking' until the cows come home. Are there other ways of thinking? Yes. Do I prefer to believe things that have evidence, rather than those that don't? Yes. If you do not prefer to have/look for hard evidence for what you think or believe, that's your prerogative. Admit it and go start a 'speculation about every thing, ever, reason not necessary' thread.
But those who believe in god still have. no. evidence.

I disagree that there is none, but I am not saying there is "hard evidence." There is no use discussing this, really.

Kangirl- You say these things with such certainty. Each side has their own (supposed) supporting evidence. It is all debatable because we have no solid proof either way. If we could prove the existence of God, there would be no use for faith. Likewise if we could disprove God.
There are two types of people in this world, sheep and sharks. Be a shark. Sharks are winners and they don't look back 'cause they don't have necks. Necks are for sheep.
