good god. here we go:
this is not necessarily what i believe.. at the moment i am agnostic but here is why many theorists/scientists dont believe in god
according to the information laws, every piece of information requires a sender. when i say information i mean DNA or cells. every piece of living matter contains information. cells that tell us how it functions. as i said, every piece of information requires a sender, since the sender (God) can not be investigated by humans, scientists believe He does not exist. The Sender, Creator, is claimed to be responsible for everything, without exception, as it says in the first verses of John's Gospel and in Colossians 1:16 "For by Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulesr or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him." Now, clearly we have some 'evidence' and some information that God did indeed exist and this information is enough for many people to believe He exists. But the Bible also gives us lots of useless information....that really doesnt help us decide what to believe in at all. nor does it inform us. for example:
"useless" information in the bible can be divided into two parts..indifferent information is the parts of the bible that tell u to be truthful etc. the injurious are the ones that tell u not to sin or else there will be consequences. i.e. "but i tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every carless word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned"-Matthew 12:36-37...from a skeptic's point of view, all of such words are useless because they give us no information about God himself. Since much of the Bible contains this type of "information" skeptics are not persuaded. (skeptics that read up on religion that is) The old testament, however, is something skeptics are little more lenient with. God gives advice in the old testament, "Do not let this book of the law depart from your mouth, meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. then you will be prosperous and succesfful"-Joshua 1:8.
but as for me...i am not necessarily a fan of religion because i do not like lines in the bible and or new testament such as these: "Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people. Walk in all the ways I command you, that it may go well with you" -jeremiah 7:23. i dont like that. that's disturbing to me.I honestly feel like most religions are simply training programs of behaviour. Instead of finding faith people are finding a routine of life and decisions that are made for them without their knowledge. they think they've made these decisions, but had God not said they wuld be punished for those decisions, would they still refrain from making them? personal morality and religion should be seperate. as should the law and other things as such.
