I think that Einstein said: "God does not play dice". If so, then God must have had a plan (intelligent design) - and if so he's probably working on "Universe XP" at the moment

I don't know what to believe really. That humans can be so clever as to come up with all these theories or evolution and science, as well as new and exciting ways to kill each other, or that God was so stupid as to create people who can think for themselves

I just want to know the answer to this - if God exists and created humans, then who created God? (What came first - the chicken or the egg, anyone?)

Hi

I stopped going to a chiropractor because he said that intelligent design was responsible for his being able to heal me! I also could hear him and some of his other clients discussing the value of prayer in the healing process. At first I thought well, he is a trained chiropractor and as log as the "G'" word didn't get mentioned I would be fine. Unfortunately at each visit it became more and more apparent that his religious beliefs were an integral part of his treatment and I stopped going. I truly didn't believe that this kind of thing could happen but it most certainly did and a huge amount of people take intelligent design seriously. It's very scary. :scared: My 12 year old step daughter came home one day to say that her friend told her we were made by God. My SD said no we come from apes. He friend got very very upset and angry with her saying it's what her mom and the church taught her! (Yes they have a 5 ft nativity scene in the garden).

I've said it before and I'll say it again. If the human body was so intelligently designed how come the sports and recreation area was placed right next to the sewers?
