    When you learn about this creature adult and her offspring you wonder how anyone could doubt a God exists. My question is how can a animal the size of a small insect eat? An animal that size with a brain and a beating heart is certainly evidence for God and an intelligent creator.

    I've always been fascinated by the fact that it's possible to calculate exactly when the sun will rise and set for a thousand years from now. Or as far out in the future you want to go.

    How could that be if evolution is true?

    Mankind wants to believe that he controls his own destiny. To accept that there is a God in control and that they will be held accountable for their lives is not what people want. While mankind doesn't mind there being a God, they just don't want Him interfering with their lives and their decisions. They want Him to be like Grandpa and Grandma who spoil their grandkids and don't discipline them. People don't like being told "That is sin."

    I believe according to Romans, there are really no athiests. There are only God suppressors. As Jon-Marc said, people do not want to believe in the God of the bible. It has nothing to do with evidence.

    Someone said, "There are no atheists in foxholes." See how fast the "atheist" in the foxhole calls on God when the bullets are flying and the ground around him is exploding as his comrades are dying and/or being blown to pieces.

    Of course, an atheist might say, "God, get me out of this alive, and I will serve you the rest of my life." The strange thing is that God gets the man out of it alive knowing the man won't keep that promise.

    Same here. I gave God very little thought until He "knocked me off my horse"--metaphorically speaking.
