Do you feel a need to have all of the mysteries of the universe explained...

...And will a simple blanket explanation do, such as Intelligent Design?

If you were presented with factual information regarding the development of our solar system, our home planet, the vegetation and animal species which inhabit it, would you still be inclined to believe that you were created by some supreme being?

  • I don't feel the need to have it all explained and I don't believe in a supreme being :)

  • I don't feel the need to have it all explained. God calls for us to have faith - it would be easy to believe if everything were factual and we were able to understand it all.

  • I do not feel the need for that kind of explanation. The facts that have been thus far revealed line up completely with the story of Creation, and that's good enough for me.

  • No, I do not feel the need to have all mysteries explained, for I know they will be in time. Why does it have to one or the other - God or science? For me God was the original scientist. So, yes, one can present scientific information and I will still believe in God.

  • I did when I was little, now I just accept things as they are. I know I will have all of my questions answered when I meet the Man Upstairs.

    This factual information does incline that I was created.

  • I find as I get more mature, my need for solid answers grows. The pat "well, just have faith" answer doesn't cut it for me any longer.
    The other night at our thanksgiving get-together, my VERY fundamentalist religious mother and I got into an unfortunate little spat (started by her, always) about that need, and creationism VS. evolution was brought up. I honestly had to suppress gales of guffaws when she looked me in the eye and told me how faith is required to trust in evolution over the LITERAL biblical creation story. Oh, the irony, cause you know the whole Garden of Eden thing doesn't take any faith. I told her that I wasn't exactly 100% positive where I stood on ID, evolution, ID-led evolution, etc but that there are Christians out there who believe that God himself initiated the process of evolution because that's the only way they can reconcile their faith with science. She looked at me as if I'd grown a 2nd head.

  • My mind is always open to new theories, but even science cannot explain sometimes the wonder of it all.
