Why God still exists even if evolution is correct

:iconretrospriteresources:
RetroSpriteResources Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2018
A lot of atheists think that evolution disproves God because all life can be explained as an evolution of another life form. But one thing they've failed to account for is if God doesn't exist, who made the first life form?

The first life form couldn't have come from evolution as there was nothing to evolve from. Where do atheists think it came from? Rocks? Dirt? Trees?

It's obvious that some believe that Satan created the first life form and proof that some atheists are secretly Satanists. But doesn't it require just as much faith to believe in Satan as to believe in God?

God rules, science drools.

Peace! Make America great again!

It is a misnomer that Evolution discounts God. Not even Darwin (who became pretty close to if not atheist himself after a while) believed that.

"a man may be an ardent Theist and an evolutionist" - Charles Darwin 1879

Pope Francis himself does not dismiss Evolution and is in fact fine with it:

"When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so," Francis said.

"He created human beings and let them develop according to the internal laws that he gave to each one so they would reach their fulfillment."

"God is not a divine being or a magician, but the Creator who brought everything to life," the pope said. "Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve."

"Let's reduce God to even lower tiers of Power Level and Force Using than even us humans - it will greatly improve our chances of brainwashing another zombie victim into believing in our own god-man."

More like the Pope came from a scientific background, and decided that the church's purpose is not to go against science but instead find its place in it. I've always had this mindset even before this, and was glad and proud the new Pope fell into the same line of thinking.

This is exactly the same thing that *I* said - putting more VALUE into science than into God's Words.

God's words was never in conflict with science. It is our own arrogance and avarice that made it so.

That's a THIRD wheel in the equation, hence irrelevant.
My point is that it's NOT that "God needs to fit science" - but in reverse, "science has to fit God's literal account".
The problem (and that "third wheel") appears when people try doing the OPPOSITE - "fitting God to science", not vice versa.
So it's a DISGRACE when a religious leader speaks in this context of "God must make way for science".
Which is what you openly support as well, so it's YOUR shared disgrace as well.
Enjoy.

What annoys me are creationists and hardcore evolutionists. Evolution and religion don't really oppose each other at all. I'm both an evolutionist and I believe in God, which obviously earns me lots of hate from both sides. I wonder why people can't seem to understand that there is a middleground ... I guess all arguments have taken an extremist viewpoint nowadays.

How do you personally reconcile "literal Genesis" with "literal evolution"?
If you remove "literal" from either of them - then you aren't really COMBINING those views, but SUBMITTING to the one NOT "edited".
Meaning, you are either an evolutionist that pretends believing in God (but ignores His own words).
Or you are a believer with some strange views on evolution (but I tend to guess that the FORMER is the actual case, given statistics).
Well, I'm NEITHER case - I actually believe that God is *capable* of COMBINING literal Genesis with an APPEARANCE of literal evolution.
For one, He never needed to ask anyone's OPINION on what He should do or not, loool.

"Meaning, you are either an evolutionist that pretends believing in God"
Implying that one cannot believe in God and evolution at the same time, and those who profess to do just that you assume are fakers.

"

Which is what you are what with your fake past/advance start/matrix dino/viel of creation thing.

"

It is actually more like you never asked God's opinion when you decide what God does or doesn't do. Though I suppose being a fictional character, God does whatever the believer wants God to do. Kind of like how whoever is writing a Superman comic can make Superman do whatever they desire.

"
If you remove "literal" from either of them - then you aren't really COMBINING those views, but SUBMITTING to the one NOT "edited".
Wait for it...

"

And there is the hypocrisy. I'm sure you are not smart enough to realize (based purely on your past displays of ingorance towards commonly understood words). If you give something the appearance of being literal when it is not, then by definition it is not literal. It is a fake, an illusion, a trick, a falsification, a forgery, a lie. So despite your constant insistence that everyone should accept your "advance start" thing as the ideal solution to make both YEC and evolution true, what you are actually doing is asserting that YEC is true by making evolution an illusion.

You may now go ahead and coware away from me by making your dismissive irrelevant childish remarks. Bark like a dog for me again.

"Pretend": speak and act so as to make it appear that something is the case when in fact it is not. Example: Koshej pretends that his "adnavce start" religion is equally as valid as the theory of evolution.

There's such a thing as chemical evolution that predates life, due to the versatility of carbon in creating a multitude of organic compounds. All you really need is a compound that can replicate, increase its complexity; all while being subject to selective pressures. If a protein coat helps you withstand solar radiation you will eventually have one-- assuming that the materials are available. Another thing is that RNA is both a blueprint and a toolkit, i.e. strands can take on unique shapes to assist in the chemical coupling on other strands. This is a house that can build itself, you just don't see all the scaffolding since it has worn away after millions of years.

Because God is perfect, God doesn't visit Earth every now and then to change an animal so it has a better chance at surviving

Instead God created Evolution to do all that for him... he probably only created everything in existence in 7 seconds or something, and is now just sitting back relaxing :)

Also the big bang doesn't disprove God

Before the big bang what was there? Gases elements and stuff floating around in space, but before that what was there? Before space what was there?

Science is a limitation of understanding, it only sees to a point and not beyond that. By Being Religious you admit that you don't know everything but what you do know is that there is a God, which already makes you more knowledgeable then any scientist ;P

PS I don't like calling God 'him', since it is a misconception considering God is described as 'the eternal spirit' in the Bible. He isn't man he is a being not a sex

I don't really want to get into any religious fights or something with anybody but the bible is obviously fake, and I mean all religions are fake. Let's be real, the chances of any real god is, what, 0/100? People have pretty much proved that the bible is fake, hell, American Dad has even pointed out the things that aren't even possible in the bible.

Also. Did you seriously just put 'make America great again' at the end of your post?
