HAVE you wondered why everything from atomic particles to vast galaxies is governed by precise mathematical laws? ? Have you reflected on life itself​??—its variety, its complexity, and its amazing design?? Many attribute the universe and the life in it to a great cosmic accident and evolution. Others give credit to an intelligent Creator. Which viewpoint do you feel is more reasonable?? Romans 1 .20

Cosmic accident.

Not that you will listen to that point of view, or that you actually want an answer to your question.

Like all fervents on here, your mind is made up, so why bother asking for opposite views which you will then ignore?
Yep, 'great cosmic accident and evolution' wins every time for me.
Two of our great thinkers have spoken with irrefutable clarity.
No need for sarcasm Khandro, most un-christian of you.

Two AB'ers have answered a question, safe in the knowledge that their views were not sincerely sought, and will be ignored, as always.
Well, it's the usual conundrum - which is more likely, that the universe is self-sufficient, or that god is self-sufficient? Those who love to seek truth continue to probe nature for clues. Others postulate a God, who is considered by some as a sensible answer to a big question, but who takes the place of truth and simply saves people the bother of thinking, and gives them a bit of peace. Ah, bless!
no
As I always say, belief in God is fine whichever one you believe in, it's when you push those beliefs onto others, especially ones who have alread said they don't share your faith, that I have a problem. That, and the constant derision of those with opposing views Khandro.
Where do you suppose God acquired His intelligence and creativity? Perhaps He Googled it. - https://www.jw.org/en/library/magazines/g201002/Is-Belief-in-God-Reasonable/
Assigning a reason to that you don't yet understand is not unreasonable. Belief in a particular god that did it all may not be rational though.

Have you ever wondered why, given infinite arrangements, some situations are almost certain to have precise mathematical laws ? Most likely all situations inevitably have. Have you reflected on the lack of need for design ? Or the lack of logic in assigning an intelligent creator to it all ? Sanity 101.

1,Corinthians, 10, 19 What am I saying then? ? that an idol-sacrifice is anything, or that there is any such thing as an idol-god? 20* no, but that what they sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God. And I do not want you to become participants with demons. 21 You cannot drink the Lord’s cup and demons’ cup! you cannot share the Lord’s table and demons’ table! 22 Or are we teasing the Lord into JEALOUSY ? are we stronger than he?
No....because god was a human invention to explain things that were not understood and to keep people in their places with the promise of an after life of fabulousness if they just did as they were told to by the wealthy.

I believe we have an answer to the question - //Is Belief In God Reasonable?//
'' God is a human invention,'' and similar statements, are totally worthless coming from anybody who has not given at least some cursory study time to the subject.
Its similar to dismissing a political party without thoroughly examining its policies, that is, driven by laziness and smugness.
Credit where its due, some learned and dogged atheists post on here, and sadly, atheists from the other end of the spectrum are also well represented.
Brilliant scientists have narrowed down the possible scenarios of the infant universe to just possibly three, but can not escape the problem of, ''nothingness,'' always needing that first miraculous push from, ''something,'' unless of course you agree with the concept of abandoning the laws of cause and effect and attribute this to quantum field theory.
Even then, the argument is only dealing with the, ''how,'' and not the, ''why,'' which is something I imagine would be of great importance to those who study, ''reason.''
Our computers and phones are nothing more than devices for taking in information, storing it, and then sending it on when required.
They do not actually create information.
This always comes from a mind.
So what is a reasonable assumption for the creation of information, as found in, for example, the 3.5bn bits of information in the human genome?
All of it is copied, but from where did it originate?
I believe in evolution 100pc. .... I believe that GOD created evolution tho. 1 “day” in the bible Cld be millions of yrs
//Its similar to dismissing a political party without thoroughly examining its policies,//

An unrealistic analogy. I can see and hear the leaders of political parties. There is nothing tangible in imaginary beings. No, belief in God is not reasonable.
So information, ''just happened.''
That's about the size of it.
DNA is information, which doesn't come from a mind.
Theland, there’s no rationality whatsoever in ascribing anything to something for which there is no evidence. Still, keep imagining. You never know, might come up with a more tangible solution - or at least find the courage to be honest and say you don’t know.
