When Alexander the great once said  ´Ohhh deus. Vos es sic magnus´, which can be translated into English as ´Ohhh God, you are so big´, he would not have imagined, thousands of years later, those words would be quoted in a language learning website nor he knew anything about the structure of DNA or how stars are formed. would he say the same thing if he had any knowledge? Possibly would, as he was not talking about the god when he uttered those words (if he ever said them!!)..

Actually, what we know today is not leaving any gap for God to be squeezed anymore as far as the science concerned..

We know that there was no creation because ´what we know´, not ´what don´t know´..

We know DNA, we know how life forms are evolved, we know how planets are formed, we have strong ideas /theories about big bangs etc.. 

Basically, science will never ever or can never ever prove the the existence of God(s). 

All those people said this and that etc many many moons ago when they had no idea about what we know today. They are not relevant with today´s philosophy, today´s life and no ethical problems were answered by any of the religions in my view..

I think in the end, if people show more courage and play less in the  spiritual safe lounge of ´there is a god club´, will be better..

All those indoctrination, generations after generations, make people ´leaving their options open´.. They are still scared to come out fully.. 

I think that is the reason why we hear, ´I am fond of God but not religion´.. ´I am waiting for religion to prove there is one´ etc..

Reasonable ideas. But lets wait and see. Nothing always seems like what it is.

 Don´t be so pessimist.Trust science.

 

 I do trust science, and I am waiting for it to prove to me there is a God, in the meantime, I believe there is no God!  And I am a "glass half full" sort of person not a "glass half empty" sort. {#emotions_dlg.angel}

Stephen Hawking: God did not create Universe

 

The Universe can create itself from nothing, says Prof Hawking

There is no place for God in theories on the creation of the Universe, Professor Stephen Hawking has said.

 

..But in a new book, he concludes the Big Bang was an inevitable consequence of the laws of physics.

 

The Grand Design, part serialised in the Times, says there is no need to invoke God to set the Universe going.

 

"Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something," he concluded.

How can I explain this to my mom who is fasting at this very moment?

 

 

I have really enjoyed his series of programmes so far - particularly the one about faith schools.  I can´t help sharing his view on all religions...
