How can you tell this is advanced? What if the universe unfolded completely differently and were 10x more advanced? This universe cannot be compared to anything else, so you can't say we're advanced or that human life is amazing.
It's entirely possible that all life formed entirely out of coincidence, and it's also possible that someone or something created life, I just don't know which, and I won't ever know for sure.

actually the big bang theory makes sence, the universe started with matter and anit-matter in proportion to one and other one day matter and anti-matter crashed into each other and the result was BANG matter won and flew all over the universe cancling out the anti-matter making stars and planets and what not.

I just cant believe that there is a superior being defying the laws of physics and creating matter and engery out of thin air, it just cant happen. The universe started with an exact amount of matter and will end with the exact same amount. I dont think a superior being could create everything with such complexity in just 6 days. I think religion is just something that people make to answer questions that they cannot answer themselves like what created us and where do we go when we die. I do not know these answeres for sure but i do know that a god cannot do such things no matter how awesome and powerful he is.

Thats totally correct,

and me randomly throwing stickies and frags on a team by myself will cancel out all of the other pro teams, destroy FB singlehandedly and make me the MLG champ of Vegas this year.



Be reasonable, what are the chances?

Im sorry, thats all that I could muster for someone who says that an entity as complex, as resourceful, as varied, and as technical as the human body isn't amazing.

It could be 100x more complex, varied, etc.

You don't know all the possibilities that could've been formed from the beginning of the universe, it could be much worse and much better. We have no place to say that we're advanced or complex if we have nothing to compare it to.

Sure, the human body is fascinating in the way everything comes together and works as well as it does, but that doesn't mean it couldn't be better.

kinda like the point someone(i don't remember who) brought up that the only possibilities we have of knowing about a particular thing are only the ones that we have met objectively through experience or the ones we have created in our minds.

If you belive in creationism where did god come from?
