Yes it does. So where did the universe, and us, come from? Atheism can only offer an impersonal cause. But an impersonal cause that precedes the universe must have always possessed the necessary and sufficient conditions to bring the universe into existence. If this pre-existing cause always existed, then it always possessed these conditions. But this necessitates an automatic generation of the universe, because when the necessary sufficient conditions are there, the result is automatic. But this means the universe would have been created an infinitely long time ago. But the universe is not infinitely old, therefore the impersonal cause of the universe cannot be supported from the atheist perspective.
The universe exists. It is not infinitely old. If it were it would have run out of energy long ago. Therefore, it had a beginning. The universe did not bring itself into existence. Since it was brought into existence by something else, I assert that God is the one who created the universe.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Wel, I thank you for your well wishes seriously. It seems to me that you must be resisting for some reason. I was brought up in the Roman Catholic Faith and was soured completely. A lot of ex-RC’s, turn to atheism as they were attacked by idolatry and legalism, not to mention some of the sexual injustices that happen, and had happened to someone close to me. I still feel like you are fighting what you know as the truth? It is possible that you are not saved as the following scriptures reflect:”For many are called, but few are chosen,” (Matt. 22:14).”Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. 14″For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it,” (Matt. 7:13-14)”And He was passing through from one city and village to another, teaching, and proceeding on His way to Jerusalem. 23And someone said to Him, “Lord, are there just a few who are being saved?” And He said to them, 24″Strive to enter by the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25″Once the head of the house gets up and shuts the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock on the door, saying, ‘Lord, open up to us!’ then He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know where you are from.’ 26″Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets’; 27and He will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you are from; depart from Me, all you evildoers,'” (Luke 13:22-27).
Dave I truly hope the best for you. Give the scriptures another try.
Mbombo, or any other god cannot account for the abstract laws of logic. The Christian worldview states that God is the author of truth, logic, physical laws, etc. Atheism maintains that physical laws are properties of matter, and that truth and logic are relative conventions (agreed upon principles).How does the atheist account for the laws of logic?
And that is the problem, the word “belief”. I have throughout my lifetime, been granted the belief in many non-existent entities (I was indoctrinated as a child into Christianity), and I have met many street preachers from various denominations of Christianity and Islam, but non-have been able to convince me. I have no problem with what others believe in (as long as it doesn’t harm others). Like you, I hope the best for you too. Kind regards.
Philippians 1:29 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
29 For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,
As the scripture reads, you have not been granted belief in Christ. I hope the best for you.
I have read most of the bible, definitely read all the gospels. But thanks any wat
For what it is worth, I care about what happens to you after you die. Read the Gospel of John. God Bless
I don’t care what happens to me once I die. I do care for the loved ones I leave behind.
I too have no reason to believe there are any gods, outside of the Triune God of the Bible. Obviously you don’t care about what happens when you die?
Maybe you should consider not commenting then if you want to not be considered a fool as well as not opening your mouth?
Thank you, but NO. I didn’t give answers, I asked questions. I have found that it is much better to keep one’s mouth shut, and be thought a fool, than to open it, and remove all doubt. 😯
I have no reason to believe in any gods. I’m not concerned with the origins of life. I live for today, and care for tomorrow.
Do you believe in Mbombo?
I can no more prove God’s existance than you can prove He does not. I believe that DNA evidence has pretty much squashed any ideal of Macro Evolution and point towards a designer. Do you support your answers with personal opinion?
Time, as we know it, cannot exist without space (Space-Time Continuum). Before the hyper-dense singularity which became the Universe unfolded, it existed in a timeless, spaceless ‘place’, where all things occurred simultaneously. Therefore, the Universe might be infinitely old, yet have been “created” yesterday.
The Universe did not bring itself into existence.
Please provide proof, evidence, or at least a credible argument to support this claim which does not include the word “faith.”
I assert that God is the one who created the Universe.
Please provide proof, evidence, or a reasonable argument to support your claim that – a God exists, and – that the God that you believe in was the one who created the Universe.
It might be tough to do, when you base it on an unsupported personal opinion. 😯
Why is the god of the bible anymore likely a candidate for the creation of earth and life upon it, than any other creation god? Mbombo is much more efficient than Yahweh of the Old Testament. Yahweh required 6 days to make the planet Earth and all life upon it, and (bless him), he need a 7th day for rest.
Whereas Mbombo vomited once to make all the planets and stars, vomited again to make all living things upon the earth; job done and no rest required.
There are many creation gods to believe in.
