A word of caution: this page is written very much from the perspective of an atheist, and is intentionally written to offend. But, I am saying that he does present some valid points.
Yeah, the guy's an atheist, but atheism happens, it's a real thing in this world, and it's all part of the overall human experience. The guy seems pretty reasonable in his general tone, however, and apart from the occasional snark on "religious zealots," (with which I actually agree, since I'm a religious non
-zealot!) I found his site quite informative.
Yes, I do believe that God created everything, but what He created were the natural physical processes through which our universe emerged and life evolved. An "intelligent design," as it were. Believe me, I have Fundamentalists in my own circle of friends, and they are definitely no picnic to engage in the "creationism" argument. Personally, I have faith
, not religion. Faith is an innate belief in God -- religion is a man-made concept based on man-made writings. I do believe in Jesus Christ, and that he was a real person who walked this planet. As an act of faith, I believe that He is the Son of God. However, when reading Genesis, I am smart enough to know that the term "day" is a simple metaphor, and each of those days, as I stated before, could have been millions of years long by our way of reckoning time.
