And I generally ask those who speak such beliefs with me where they came from. Some start off answering pointing at their parents, but Some with doctorate degrees on their names start off sinlent and will not answer that question knowing where the answer has to lead - i.e., no God. And the Bible states that those who believe in their heart that there is no God are "fools." So, I suppose they have good cause to NOT take a look at what the Bible says about anything - sort of offended retalliation against God who calls them "fools."
The argument pro and con can and has raged between believers and unbelievers particularly since Darwin popularized a very old idea he called evolution - existence by chance where no God is needed - RIGHT.
Now, if I have such a discussion with a willing proponent of the no God theory, it is not unusual for that willing opponent to be asked some basic questions of real science. The first such question puts forward that even the so called "singularity" that is the source of the so called "Big Bang" must have its source, therefore does nada to destroy the need for its Creator.
The very next proposed fact in that soup is that either the singularity was created by a Creator, or else if must have always existed. Agreement on this proposal between the opponents is deadly for the No God artists on real scientific basis - the second law of thermo dynamics, which states that EVERYTHING in this material universe is decaying and when no engery is left (called "maximum entropy") there is NOTHING left in existence -- so if that singularity is supposed to have always existed, the act of law of thermo dynamics illustrated at its supposed explosion into the present day material universe would have reached "maximum entopy" ages ago - but even the No God artists are faced with the present day visible universe that testifies that the singularity has not always existed. And that leaves only one possibility that explains you own physical existance in a material universe - yup, a Creator, regardless of whether He used an exploding singularity in the process or the incredibly CRUEL idea of evolutionary trial and error. You are stuck no mater how you excuse your No God belief with a material universe that testifies of the existence of God. And that is stated very clearly in the Bible, and is now illustrated by real science too. Carry on believing that there is no eternity, no God and no you after death if you like - God gave you that choice.
