That we know of so far and its pretty safe to assume there are other life supporting planets, even possibly areas of space, out there.


Lets face it, the potential of finding other life out there is huge compared to finding any evidence of god around here.

More likely than a god. There is no iota of evidence to support the existence of a god its as simple as that.

Common misconceptions about the big bang theory:
- It is not about the creation of the universe. It is about how the universe developed.
- It is an expansion, not an explosion.


So what is the most widely accepted scientific theory of how the dust got there? I heard someone say it came from another dimension or somefin', but I can't remember who said it... so its not reliable enough.
Any of you chappys know?

Yes if they want to. Id rather keep an open mind when it comes to theorys, scientific ones or religious ones, at least until it proven as a fact, before I actually believe in it.


We can believe in the flying spaghetti monster if we want to as well, but whats the point? Open minds arent afraid to ask questions and challenge, thats how we learn.

Energy into matter probably. We may never know exactly but just trying to find out is often the most fun part.

Yup. Agnostic, myself... but I think I have a fairly open mind. Trust me... I've gone here and there from religions and scientific theories for the past 2 years... I think I'm a bit too open.
Finally settled on what I believe (agnostic/evolutionist).. the fact is... all religions and scientific theories have points in their favour.
And just because you don't believe in a religion doesn't mean it doesn't have any value. I go to a Christian school and find some of the Chapel services surprisingly relevant and helpful. Buddhism has some sound lessons to be learnt as well. And many more... diversity is good. IDIC.

who created the gas that formed the big bang? (Just to get it out of the way it was NOT a GOD fart!)


who created the primordial ooze? (yes I mis-spelled it)


i just look and see how much we have evolved just since the 1950's, but where did it come from? forget about if it was a chicken or and egg...


the question was... What came first, the chicken or the egg? think about it, you will get it.


i kinda believe that we are living in an atom or something. like how mosquitos only live for 24 hours, but that 24 hours is a lifetime for them.


hmmmmmmmmmmmm...

Absolutely. As long as they


a) realize and accept that it is all a belief, and not a fully proven truth, and


b) don´t ridicule or dismiss what others choose to believe.


As I read somewhere here, too: both religious "beginning of life" stories and scientific findings have points in their favour. As well as points against their favour.


Following logic, the truth ought to be found somewhere in the middle!
