Why didn't God give us advanced technology and advanced, peaceful utopian societies to begin with instead of letting us evolve from our initial state?

because everything is programmed, is there any use to programm a perfect society? i dont think so, not from an experimental point of view anyways

God doesn't have a time-scale. Who says the 6 days of creation were days as we know them?

If everything is programmed, do we have any freedom of choice?
this is arguable, but freedom of choice is possible

i dont want to sound too surreal or silly, but our actions can be pre-programmed or there could be future techniques to give us humans several choices of freedom within the codes

I'm open to ideas. I just think it's equally as silly for scientists to simply rule out "God".

Munie = Prejudice (which clouds interpretation) and then relying on the stereotype that "religious" people are stupid is not a clever form of debate.

nah we wont rule out god yet, to be fair we all still pray to god when we are in deep trouble, not somefuturistic programmers. As long as there is unhappiness, god will still exist

I was speaking to some bloke last week at my society's social, and he told me he was a 'die-hard atheist' - something I found highly amusing. I tend to lean towards agnosticism, despite having a religious upbringing.

I was not debating with you, rather I was pointing out the obvious. Sorry if you misunderstood my comment.

"I just think it's equally as silly for scientists to simply rule out "God". "

I think it is silly that no matter what argument is presented to religious people they rebute it with a vacuous argument based on their preconceived notion that god does infact exist. How do they or you possibly know God's timeline. I believe that argument is a prejudicial one that is based solely on opinion and no fact. When science says the earth is millions of years old the religious community does not change the scriptures but rather points out the oh so well known fact that gods timeline is different and that supposed length of time that is stated in the bible cannot be taken at face value but rather must be interpreted with the timeline of god. However, if you cannot accept this timeline at face value how can you accept anything else written in the Bible?
