Forum:This is what someone's response was when I ask them how he knows for certain God is real.
Prepare thyself for the cringe-worthiness:
"For me, took tragedy and the will to seek. Also over time as I got my faith back, look up to the stars, look how they're placed in the sky. Random? No. That is a creator my friend. Just look at the design as you see them in the sky. Spontaneous complexity out there? I just look at this world and I can't see the world without a designer. Evolution was created to destroy our faith and destroy God. It used lies to do the deed. You want to believe that a hot primordial soup cooled and all the organisms of life evolved from a big bang in the sky? What's believable to you my friend. Look in the mirror. You beautiful fine tuned body is not a freak of nature and you did not come from a big bang in the sky and you didn't come from a cooled primordial soup, you are a designed body in the name of God, in God's image. God is real. And he's your guide to salvation. Did you know a single bacteria is more complex than the space shuttle? Again. Evolution is a false hersey to destroy the creation.
"Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. Don't listen to the false teachers.
"If you read the Bible, research the passages, research the world wide flood, research the true age of the earth. , research the resurrection, research the historical Jesus, research the accuracy of prophecy. The Shroud of Turin has never been disproved. It has 3 major aspects. It has 3D components when you look at the negative. Even more astounding, is that the negative becomes the positive when you look through a "negative film" it's in reverse. WE know what it's not, it's not a paitning, it's not a drawing, it's not a photograph. The carbon dating was skewed due to the part they tested was contaminated. CArbon dating is one of the worst ways to date anything, it's hardly accurate when you study it, especially when you have any contaminants. Like a test I saw they tested a living snail, it was dated 27,000 years old. Atheists use the carbon dating to erase the other fasciting aspects that can't be explaiend and they deubunk it. That's the problem with atheism. They think one test rules out the other dozen. Don't think that way. Dig deep into your soul.
"I recommend going to Answers in genesis online. It was instrumental in my path back to the my faith. I can tell you my specific story how I found my faiht if you want. Just let me know."
He then posts the following image:
And he further spouts:
"Atheists believe that 1 billion or 20 billion years ago (no one can tell you when, because there were no witnesses) the Universe exploded into being. Now think about this; what is the opposite of being?
"Non being or....Nothing.
"Do you know of anything that came from nothing? Look around you...Did any thing in your room explode out of nowhere? If you can describe nothing then it is no longer nothing, it is something. There really isn't any such thing as nothing. It is just a word that we use to describe the opposite of what something is. Do you have a headache yet?
"I love logic!
"So, now to sum it up. This is atheism; nothing + nothing= something. It isn't possible because something can't come from nothing.
"Then they say that at the point of explosion which was a mass of cytoplasm or after the explosion-(which came from nothing) OOPS! They forgot the "law of Inertia" (look it up later)-then the Universe gradually evolved into what we are today.(this is called spontaneous generation)
"I forget the proper order: single celled organism, fish, lizard, bird, monkey , ape, Human-something like that.
"The problem is that we have never seen a single celled organism evolve into any thing other than a single celled organism. There is no physical evidence of a human being born from an ape. plus apes still exist and lizards still exist.
"It's kind of a really bad theory! What do you think?"
- Yawn. Ok, you've convinced me - evolution, gravity, chemistry or whatever is false. Now please do the far more interesting thing and prove that God exists.--Coffee (talk) 08:41, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
