A nagging question that I have had
Listen, I am going to let you all know that I am a Christian, or Theist as you all like to refer to us as, just wanted to let everyone know where I was coming from. I came from atheism to God because of the evidence that I found to support the idea of God. Here is the one question that has never been answered for me, so maybe you guys will win me back, who knows.
How can you say with absolute certainty that there is no God. In my mind to assert that claim is to say that you personally know everything there is to know about everything scientific. I look at the number of species of animals that we continue to find at the bottom of the ocean, we never knew these creatures were there until just now. Plus than there is the theory of the big bang, how can we know? No one was there and there is no concrete evidence, there is evidence, but in my mind it seems way too much like a religion (there is a lot of faith required to believe it). Plus look at the difference between the science when Darwin made his assumptions until today there are huge differences. When was the last time we have ever seen an animal evolve into a completely new one? How do you explain the Cambrian explosion? These are all things that science doesn't dispute but hasn't given good account for.
As science progresses it seems to disprove the ideas that atheists try to hold on to so desperately; one of the leaders of your movement(?) admitted that life may have been "seeded" on this planet by beings with higher intelligence. By the way, that was said by Richard Dawkins on Ben Stein's documentary "Expelled No Intelligence Allowed". When I saw Richard Dawkins of all people say that that was a theory it sealed the deal for me, I was on my way to Christianity.
Let me close this short post by saying that I know I will be lambasted for my beliefs and my post. I only hope that someone will take the time to at least answer the glaring question, "How can you say with certainty there is no God without knowing everything about everything? How do you know that 10 or 20 years from know we will find "
