” Do you believe that God created all things ? If so, you’re not alone; many young people (and adults) share your view. But others say that life and the universe evolved​ ?? .without the help of a “Supreme Being. Why is that question important ? Because the Bible encourages you to use your MIND, “your POWER OF REASON .” That means your belief in God should not be based merely on the influence of others ,When I see a house, a cruise ship, or a car, I ask myself, ‘Who built this?’ It takes intelligent people to build a car, for example, because so many small components have to work just right for the whole thing to function. And if cars have to be designed by someone, then so do we humans. ??? then just ask yourself ,,did just full out of the sky ???? Matthew 5:3)

We evolved of course.
We’re all made of stars. I know that’s difficult to comprehend but inventing a bloke who did it cos that’s easier ain't the answer.
//if cars have to be designed by someone, then so do we humans.//

Wonky logic.
alleluia!
oh intelligent design....load of toot
this might help:

It’s no logic at all, Naomi. Is a classic religious non sequitur which simply proves the idiocy of most religious ‘teachings’.
Did I say ‘most’? I meant ALL.
//And if cars have to be designed by someone, then so do we humans. ??? //
Why? Who invented God?
My parents designed me... a DNA test would prove it and show you how. I don't think you could say the same about cars.
locust's 'logic' (note the inverted comas) would actually imply millions of gods.
//When I see a house, a cruise ship, or a car, I ask myself, ‘Who built this?//
To build an house you would need joiners, roofers, plumbers, electricians, painters, glaziers, brickies, plasterers, etc. You would need different experts in their own trade to build something as complex as a boat or a car.
When it comes to a complex universe are we to assume that there is a cloud god, a sand god, a water god, a soil god, a planet god etc?
The difference is, is that we KNOW that a house, boat or car has been created. Nobody has ever seen a universe been created.

//And if cars have to be designed by someone, then so do we humans//
Cars dont have sex.
"Nobody has ever seen a universe being created"

But it won't be long, relatively speaking, until we observe stars and planets being created, since we've already observed the death of stars into super novae.
"Who invented God?"

Somebody at British Leyland if reliability is anything to go by. :-)
They invented surgeons, did they, doug? ;-)
But if instead we use our mind we see the difference between designed and manufactured items such as a car or house, and that which can develop without design such as all in nature.

Which brings us back to the title question. Why Do you, or anyone for that matter, Believe In God in this enlightened day & age ?

Nailit locust's 'logic' (note the inverted comas) would actually imply millions of gods.
//// I had to have a little chuckle to myself because you said you had read the Bible completely from one end to the other but it seems like you did not understand or take onboard very much because if you had read the Bible completely and understood it, you would have learnt that God the Creator created first his son then the multitude of angels and they had their own ranks and then there are the messengers so you could call these gods in your understanding and then it says that the creator is ,is the epitome, {embodiment} of power so therefore for. This Creations is beyond our imagination so when you look at the sun and the power that the sun gives every day by day and he the creator. created the sun so just imagine that.?
yes the big bang could have been the start of the production of the Universe but we have to remember that it says or it was void nothing so therefore it had to have a start. from somewhere and who caused that start even if you took any type of particle you still needed some sort of energy to start it?????
Evolution, evolution, evolution, and before that physics, physics, physics,
Believe what you like, in the privacy of your own home
Does what a work from mankind's imagination says have any relationship with reality ? If an idea is untestable it remains conjecture no matter how many choose to blindly believe on faith alone.

When testable ideas show a better solution, and so belief in them is not blind, are they not the rational explanations one should switch belief to ?

old geezer 18:20 Mon 28th Dec 2020 But if instead we use our mind we see the difference between designed and manufactured
/// can you please look at it from a designers perspective he has to design on his plan book and put all the dimensions in place and all the artefacts and all the necessary things which be made to manufacture a car or even build a house, so the designer is the first step for the creation of an auto mobile or a house then it is put into production using all, the manufacturing equipment he needs, so therefore my designer would be the god of the universe and his creation
