Billions of years ago

Published February 26th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

“Billions of years ago, a big bang produced a large rock. As the rock cooled, sweet brown liquid formed on it’s surface. As time passed, aluminum formed itself into a can, a lid, and a tab. Millions of years later, red and white paint fell from the sky and formed itself into the words “Coca Cola… 12 fluid ounces.”

Of course my theory is an insult to your intellect, because you know that if the Coca Cola can is made, there must be a maker. If it is designed, there must be a designer. The alternative, that it happened by chance or accident is to move from the intellectual free zone.

Here is another:

“The Banana: The Atheist Nightmare”

Note that the banana…

1. is shaped for the human hand.

2. has a non-slip surface.

3. Has outward indicators of it’s inward contents. Green – too early, yellow – just right, black – too late.

4. Has a tab for removal of it’s wrapper.

5. Is perforated on wrapper.

6. Has a bio-degradable wrapper.

7. Is shaped for the human mouth.

8. Has a point at the top for ease of entry.

9. Is pleasing to the taste buds.

10. Is curved towards the face to make the eating process easy.

To write that the banana happened by accident is even more unintelligent than to write that no one designed the Coca Cola can.

Test 1.

The person who thinks the Coca Cola can has no designer is:

A. Intelligent

B. A fool

C. Has an ulterior motive for denying the obvious

Now the document that I am referring from states that the eye has 40,000,000 nerve endings and focuses it’s muscles approximately 100,000 times a day. and that the eye has a retina that contains approximately 137,000,000 light sensitive cells.

The document continues and states that Charles Darwin stated:

“To suppose that the eye could have been formed by natural selection, seems I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree” Agreed… it does not have the reference recorded so I do not know if this statement is true or false. But let me get to the point at hand.

If man can not create the human eye then how can anyone in their right mind believe that it was created by chance? In fact… man can’t create anything from nothing… we just do not know how to do it. We can re-create, reform, develop… but we can not create one grain of sand from nothing. Yet the human eye… is a mere tiny part of the most sophisticated part of creation – the human body.

Again… another statement which I would have to research and verify if this person actually made this comment:

“George Gallup; “If I could prove God statistically; take the human body alone; the chance that all the functions of the individual would just happen, is a statistical monstrosity.”

Now this statement concerning Albert Einstein. This is confusing… why would this man contradict himself? If he stated this… then every other statement that has been quoted at this forum is invalid because the man appears to be speaking from both sides of his mouth. In this statement Einstein is quoted to have said:

“Everyone who is seriously interested in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the universe – a spirit vastly superior to man, and one in the face of our modest powers must feel humble.”

Test 2:

1. Do you know any building that did not have a builder? Yes? No?

2. Do you know any painting that did not have a painter? Yes? No?

3. Do you know any car that did not have a maker? Yes? No?

If you answered “Yes” to any of those statements… please give details:______________________…

Third analogy:

Could I convince you that I dropped 50 oranges onto the ground and then by chance fell into ten rows of five oranges? Logically, anyone with an intelligent mind might conclude that someone put them there. The odds that ten oranges would fall into a straight line is mind boggling. Let alone ten rows of five.

Test 3

Yes or No 1. From the atom to the universe is there order?

Yes or No 2. Did it happen by accident or must there been an intelligent mind?

3. What are the odds of 50 oranges falling by chance into ten rows of five oranges? ______________________________…

To declare that there is no God is to make an absolute statement. And for an absolute statement to be true; one must have absolute knowledge. Here is another such statement: “There is no gold in China.”

Test 4 What would I need to have for that statement to be true?

A. No knowledge of China?

B. Partial knowledge of China?

C. Absolute knowledge of China?

“C” is the correct answer. In order for the statement to be true, I must know that there is no gold in China.

Likewise; to state that there is no God and to be correct then you are stating that you are omniscient. You must have absolutely certain knowledge that there isn’t one.

Let’s say that a circle contains all the knowledge of the universe. And let’s say that you have an incredible understanding of one percent of all that knowledge. Is it possible that the knowledge you haven’t yet come across, that there might be ample evidence to prove that God does indeed exist?

If you are reasonable, you would have to admit, “Having the limited knowledge I have at present, I believe that there is no God.” In other words, you don’t know if God exists, so you are not an atheist. You are an “agnostic.” You are like a person that looks at a building and doesn’t seem to know if there is a builder.

Test 5 The man who sees a building and doesn’t know if there is a builder is:

A. Intelligent

B. A fool

C. Has an ulterior motive

In summary: There are plenty of things that we have faith in that we do not fully understand. Most of us do not have a complete understanding that when you turned your computer on as to why it worked. You took a step of faith that turning it on… that somehow that it would work. You accept the unseen electrical waves that appear right in front of your eyes when you type your comments here. We do not see the reason for why the messages appear… because the powers that be are invisible to the naked eye. For them to be manifest, we need a monitor… so we can enjoy the experience of this forum.

God is not flesh and blood; He is an eternal Spirit. Immortal and invisible… like the computer waves. He can can not be experienced unless the monitor is turned on. One should approach the Bible in the same way as the monitor. If it works, enjoy it and if it doesn’t, forget it.

Or do you have an ulterior motive? Could it be that the “atheist” can’t find God… as a thief can’t find the policeman? Could it be that your logic is clouding your good judgment?”

    I like the way this guys logic argues that god is not the almighty, not the alpha and omega, its brilliant. if i wanted to prove that god is not on the highest plain of existance i would use his argument as a starting point as apparently he would have to be made by something. I always thought that christianity was about having faith that god existed not trying to prove it? maybe this is because when you try to prove it like old matey whos on about coca cola in space you end up giving the argument that he does not exist and if he does then he answers to a higher power.

    Also why is he dipicted as a man? Think about it if he’s a man then his input into giving life is nowhere near as much as a womans(minutes compared to 9 months). and if we are made in his image then we would surely share the same type of attributes so why would he spend 7 days making life? So maybe god does exist and he just started the universe with a big bang(excuse the pun) which resulted in Mother nature getting nocked up and she took over with cultivating life on the planet with evolution and because god had an input we look like him/her.

    Also by saying god has always existed and your argument being that its just true then that argument is equal with that the universe has always existed. Difference being that I have never seen god but i have seen stars and planets in the night sky and if god is everywhere does that apply to the other planets and stars if so then god and the universe are one as he inhabits all meaning that we are living inside of god making us part of god (ive confused myself am i god now?). Wow look how ive just used irrelevent logic to prove that im part god or in god or possibly god and ive created you all in my head, maybe. How do you like them apples.

    And get this as a kicker i believe in god i just think your an idiot jonathon and that religion (or infatic belief in a story book) does not make the slightest bit of sense but until someone proves where the universe came from and i mean really prove i am happy to accept that it could have been made by a higher power. why not?

    “To declare that there is no God is to make an absolute statement. And for an absolute statement to be true; one must have absolute knowledge.”

    So where is your absoulute knowledge that god does exist. You have just blown away your own argument with that sentence.

    STOP RANTING. And what is it these people have with the “Big Bang Rock?”

  4. Magnus says:

    hehe… started out to make absolutely no sense like his other posts. Then came with arguments that I fear is the kind that creatonism is based on. Love the YES or NO part. Let’s not leave room for argument of proof, YES OR NO. Oh and Besides from the Banana which by chance (pun intended) happened to be the best suited example of Creatonism. But clearly, foreseeing our modern times God would naturally incorporate a cellphone, mp3player and web browser into it as-well. It is after all a intelligent design.

    You didn’t by any chance copy all of that stuff from here?

    I hate to be the one to point this out, but the banana you’re describing WAS, in fact, man-made.

    …This is ackward.

    RAmen!

  7. spaghetti lover says:

    Hey banana man! Guess what else is shaped for the human mouth and has a point at the top for ease of entry! :O

    New step: Repeat.
    Paragraph is now false!

    “Test 4 What would I need to have for that statement to be true?

    A. No knowledge of China?

    B. Partial knowledge of China?

    C. Absolute knowledge of China?

    “C” is the correct answer. In order for the statement to be true, I must know that there is no gold in China.”

    That sentence is so false, there’s gold in China.
    Just because you don’t know what you say is true doesn’t mean it’s true.
