As for all these arguments about the fact that there must be some intelligent desinger, with the watch and what not. Who created the watchmaker?
Beginning of the Bible: "in the beginning there was nothing... then God" If there was nothing, where has God come from.
Another thing as well, those of you who have half a brain or have read the Da Vinci Code will already have realised this. The fact is how do we imagine God - as an old man with long white hair, sounds familiar right? it's Zeus, who came from a civilisation predating the wonderful beginning of Judaism. There are MANY similar stories that were spread over Europe and the Middle East, (see El for those looking for more religious parallels). Birth of Jesus is similar to Krisha's, and the teachings are the same (but reworded) as the Buddha, Prince Sidharta. There are even religions attempting to consolidate all the existing religions into one affordable, all-encompassing religion, hence the reason the Lotus Temple was built. Keeping religion is futile and will lead to the degredation of society. The answer lie in science and whether or not we will ever achieve these answers has nothing to do with religion.
