We believers have all kinds of questions like the reason for the beginning of the universe, abiogenesis, an explanation and examples of evolution, the list goes on and on.
Believers put forward ideas that are are shot down in flames by atheists.
So the simple question is, what is your explanation for these important questions?

what about the burning of Notre Dame and whether it was predicted in the Bible ?
//Believers put forward ideas //

Correction. Believers put forward ONE idea. Me? Like everyone else, including believers, I don't know.
Peter, I believe that you're thinking about Nostradamus and not Notre Dame.
Why do you need a REASON for everything? We don't ask WHY the tossed coin lands on heads (or tails). It just does, a random event. Similarly the universe as it it now is just the result of 13.8 billion years worth of random events. That doesn't make it any less amazing, or remarkable or awe-inspiring than your created Universe but it doesn't need a reason.
Some of these questions remain unanswered. But that's fine, because life would be boring if all these questions had already been solved.

The evidence, on the other hand, in favour of evolution is not difficult to produce. The problem there, really, is that critics of evolution do insist on changing what it is they are looking for, or are demanding evidence that isn't even necessary even if it were obtainable. Or, perhaps, they request some demonstration of the fabled "missing link" between one species and its supposed ancestor, and when such a specimen is produced they then demand the missing *links* in the two gaps that are thus created!

At the current point evolution is well-established, both in terms of the mechanism (namely, genetic mutations driven by external pressures) and in terms of how it played out over our planet's history. There remain serious question-marks and puzzles, to be sure, but that is how Science should be.

Your arrogance in assuming you represent all believers is typical of religious maniacs.

O.k. then.
So selfishly, I want to come to your house, kick in the door, and take whatever I fancy, because there is no authority to hold me back, apart from getting caught.
Fair enough?

I don't represent anybody but me and my Lord.

A bit like BibleGod then Theland?
God selfishly wants to have all our worship and praise because there is no authority holding him back. And if we don't acquiesce then into eternal suffering we go??
Is fear of God the only thing that prevents you doing that, Theland?
It’s a bit like bear baiting, isn’t it. Cruel, but you can’t help poking him with a sharp stick.
//but you can’t help poking *him* with a sharp stick//
By *him* I presume you mean Theland?
Its not *him* that's 'poked' (questioned) Its his theology. A theology that's held by millions of others.
I have friends with similar theologies...I disagree with them as well.
Theland, //I don't represent anybody but me and my Lord. //

You claim to represent ... an almighty creator God? Wow!!! Some responsibility!!!
Who know what happened billions of years ago, but as a non scientist I'm happy to put it down to a series of complex chemical and physical reactions. I have no need or desire to understand it in any more detail, but admire the scientists who spend their lives researching the beginnings of life.

Instead, I'd rather enjoy the marvels of nature, science and biology now; and encourage people to understand and respect our planet now, rather than use valueable intelligence and energy trying to prove that life began as a result of any kind of super natural occurance.
//So selfishly, I want to come to your house, kick in the door, and take whatever I fancy, because there is no authority to hold me back, apart from getting caught.//

No self-respecting atheist would ever entertain such an idea . . . although I can imagine someone with a belief in an all forgiving god might have occasion to.
// Correction. Believers put forward ONE idea. Me? Like everyone else, including believers, I don't know.//

o come on Nigh dont be shy, nigh
you have ONE idea - Brexit is a very very good thing !
( I havent understood your deep thoughts have I ?)
PP, the reader could be forgiven for thinking you're trolling me. Take a breather.

Theland, as a child, like the rest of us, you were taught right from wrong. Why now, as an adult, do you need to refer to an outside source, albeit a dubious one, to prevent you from committing a crime?

The voice of an atheist, they are such nice people.

They have no more answers than those who choose the more religious explanations, so why do they go out their way to be rude and scoff at them?
aog, does Theland represent you?
Maybe most atheists, like myself, just want to be left alone and have their right to believe or not believe not challenged pretty much every day by a load of religious zealots who clearly have to much time on their hands.
