What do you think? Atheism related.

Saw this on fb this morning. I do not agree with this. What do you think of what it says?

  • "So where did God get his "building materials" to create everything"

    I could easily ask you the same thing. Where did the "building blocks" for matter and energy came from?

  • I think whoever wrote it has absolutely no idea what science is, does, or says about the start of the universe and the beginning of life on earth.

  • using the word 'nothing' implies ignorance, and most atheists i know IRL (or online) have studied ferociously and have come to actual scientific conclusions or reasoning of their on thinking. to say 'nothing comes from nothing' is just dumb.

  • I think someone is undereducated and doesn't want to seem like the idiot they are - so they make stupid graphics!

  • There's an error is in the word "magically". Atheists tend not to believe in that, either.

  • Don't Atheists believe that everything was somehow created from nothing?

    No. We believe the matter/energy that makes us up has always been in the iuniverse just in a different form. (After ann both the Laws of Conservation of energy and matter both state that neither can be created nor destroyed only altered in form.), That the previous universe collapsed on itself and then the BIG BANG happened. And then over the course of BILLIONS of years different stars and planets were formed through processes such as accretion.

    Now as for where the universe stems from, we don't know but that doesn't mean we believe a deity created it from "nothing" either" afterall what created said deity? Common answer is that he always was which poses the question if "always existing" is acceptable for theists, why must atheists have the answer as to where matter and energy came from?

  • Sharon, it exists. can you not tell the difference between quoting something and espousing it? do you think all bookstores selling Mein Kampf are promoting a nazi viewpoint?

  • Sharon, get a dictionary and look up atheism. it has nothing to do with the origins of the universe or humankind.
