I don't personally think it makes much sense for God to be real but if it comforts other people to think that death isn't permanent then who am I to stop them. --- Double Post Merged, Jul 1, 2016, Original Post Date: Jul 1, 2016 --- 1. The Big Bang, though a credible theory, describes a transition of matter in a centralized location to across the universe. Where then, did the matter come from? My own idea of how the "Big Bang" started is that there hasn't just been one big bang, and the universe has never truly ended. I like to think that the universe has always been around and that there is no start or end. I think that each universal "incarnation" eventually expands beyond being able to sustain any matter ( see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_death_of_the_universe for a more in depth explanation of this) and "ends." However, the matter that used to comprise the known universe is still there, it is just dispersed so sparsely that it is essentially gone. It can remain this way for an indefinite amount of time until somehow, somewhere, a few of the pieces of atoms of the "old" universe bump into each other in such a way that the first "new" atom is formed. Eventually this reaction cascades into the reformation of the universe into a new shape and configuration, eventually forming new planets and galaxies with new life on them. This would be what we refer to as a "Big Bang." But since the universe is always expanding due to entropy, that universe will eventually disperse and repeat the cycle. Universes are in an infinite, empty void and there are probably multiple universes within that space sharing the same amount of matter, swapping things when they die and reform. Now this is by no means an actual scientific theory, I just spent a period of Chem 2 thinking about this instead of doing my work, but I think it actually makes a lot of sense. 2. Obviously, all Atheists believe the Bible is false, can you show me any archeological evidence against the New Testament? Well I mean, there isn't any archeological evidence for it either. The only things that can be proven is that it takes place in the middle east and that's about it. None of the things that happen in it can be proven, they just got locations and stuff right because that's where the authors lived. However, this is loads of evidence against just the Great Flood alone so I'm not gonna get into this really. this is where we start to tread territory that no one can confirm simply because the book is so damn old. 3. Isn't the argument "there is no God" also an https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argument_from_ignorance since this falls under options 1-4 depending on your position? I don't quite understand what you are trying to say here. No-one can definitively say that god is or isn't real, and anyone who does is a fool, if that's what you're trying to get across. Could you clarify? Thank you, these were good questions.
