I, as an agnostic, consider why evolution and God cannot both co-exist? Why does it have to be one or the other?
up to this point we could surly accept that both may exist together. evolution itself does not exclude the existence of god. the existence of god is put by other issues in question.
Our own "laws" of thermodynamics seem to fall apart when you consider that if all the "stuff" here wasn't created (matter cannot be created or destroyed), then where the hell did all this matter come from? Has it really just "always been here"?
this is what happens if people start philosophing about things they don't know much about. denying possibilitie just because they don't know much of current state of science knowledge.
Also, the 2nd law of thermodynamics basically says that in any energy transformation, the net "usefullness" of the energy tends toward a more chaotic or more dis-orderly state.
So how do you account for our present level of "energy quality"? How did giant suns with God knows how much high quality energy in them arise from total chaos? How does a superheated cup of coffee arise from a vast freezing ocean without intelligent intervention (eg, humans setting up a tidal powerplant which turns a generator which provides electricity which then powers a coffee maker)? The big bang? Oh, well that explains everything. Instead of "magic man done it!!!" "Its big KABOOM done it!!!!"
*sigh* half-knowledge is far more dangerous then knowing nothing.
As an agnostic, I don't know a damn thing about the unknown, and I don't pretend to know. I just ask questions. Maybe God exists and maybe he doesn't. However, I am amazed at religious people who know for certain that God does exist and at aetheists who know for certain that God doesn't exist.
here i am with you. but you didn't asked only questions above you've done much more by making quite exact conclusions based on far too less knowledge. pls don't feel offended. i know you only wanted to point out the questions but many others see somethings they can not explain with their knowledge so they deny the possiblity.
and know just for the fun:
the most important reason why the existance of "a god" (god as an omnipotent supervisor/creator) is put in question by scientific world is very simple:
a god is not needed! god is not needed to explain anything. if a god would exist it would render many observation absurd,
up till now it is much simplier to explain the world without a god than with a god.
that's it. first principle of sience: allways prefere the simplier answer if you have to chose.
