Personally I get quite a sense of freedom from being an atheist - my life is mine, as are my choices and my beliefs/thoughts. While I have nothing against anyone who chooses to believe in a religion, I still feel that the idea of a God who is always there to judge and control irks me. I have my own moral compass, and it serves me just fine.

That's really a matter of perspective. Some people need that surity, call it god of the gaps if you will, but some people need the loose ends tied up and like the twine just where it is.  Others don't mind the twine rolling around the floor and even enjoy chasing it. Either way, it's still a ball of twine :)

I agree with Billy that we will never know but I would rather put my faith in a deity then no know.

I have been getting quite the email notifications from this thread. I am very surprised from the civility of this argument. I have considered both arguments and I would like to say this. We do not know the catalyst for the big bang. Without evidence we may never know. I do not think we should just assume god did it because there is no evidence for that. Until new evidence arises for either sides I think we can conclude this argument officially over

May I ask what your basis of argument is for God being the catalyst? Couldn't any supernatural force ever imagined just as easily work as an explanation? I mean, what if we're all a part of the matrix?

My point here is this: Once we've agreed on the facts and even on the most likely fringe aspects of the truth, the rest seems to be blind speculation. The mere fact that specific speculations are passed down the generations through stories would hardly seem to lay credence to the truth of such stories. Why choose from the speculations? Why not wait for better information?

Thats what I would argue, well once again i would like to thank you for being suprisingly civil nearly all atheists I have met that new i was a theist were quite militant.

As stated in my previous post I think the big bang theory is correct

Comment by Ryan Leahy on May 15, 2012 at 1:05pm

Except, of course, for all the evidence we do have for the big bang, like that fact that the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, cosmic background radiation and the abundance of primordial gas clouds, to name but a few.

Very interesting, Thank you for the information. I still think that though we have no real evidence of either I would rather believe in a creator. Thank you for answering my questions.
