For example, apparently, Dark matter affects light and gravity, and yet science still looks through its telescopes and draws conclusions as to the age of the universe by looking at star positions, light spectrum composition and trajectories. But I say, if "dark matter" is out there, distorting light and gravity, then anything we observe from earth could be completely distorted also, right? So, then how do we know anything about shit thats light years away? Big bang? Beginnings? Endings?? Its all speculative nonsense. I am just as likely to believe in a white bearded man floating in the cosmos, as I am regards some of the stuff Science tells us about the deep universe. Both are ridiculous to me.
Very abstract thinking here, and far too complex for my rather simple mind
. I am not overly familiar with the science on the universe, dark matter, etc. Going back to the topic, and to the origin of humans (which I know you will say is inseparable from the origins of the universe, and I agree), the question I am interested in addressing, and one that is particularly relevant to the topic of the thread, is where did man come from?
As a proponent of science I will never say that it is 100% impossible that God does not exist. Such a statement goes against everything I believe in in science. But I can say it is almost certain that He/She does not exist. And I do not believe that is it "just as likely" that a bearded man in the cosmos created man (and the Earth) as it is that these things developed in the ways accepted by the scientific community (evolution, and even a "big bang" type event). There are a lot of things that we don't know, and maybe our views on the origins of the universe will change considerably over time. But it is much more likely, at this time, that the universe started with a big bang that it is that God created it for the purpose of creating man in His image.
