Many times, atheists believe that they are eliminating the need for faith when they reject the concept of a Creator. They believe that this is the only way to maintain a scientific approach, and take faith out of the picture.
However, rejecting the idea of God only serves to make things infinitely more complicated for atheistic science.
Let’s break it down to belief: The common theories of today teach us that billions of years ago (a time incomprehensible to man), matter exploded outward, creating not only the universe, but time and space.
But wait! Aren’t we getting ahead of ourselves? They say that time and space were non-existent, but what about the matter?
Enough matter to form the entire universe doesn’t suddenly appear from nothing and by nothing. That would be contrary to laws of physics, which state that in an isolated system (for example, the proposed universe), matter cannot be created!
Surely it wasn’t spontaneously generated? But if not, then how did it get here, and why did it contain the correct materials to form a densely populated universe?
To the atheist, this only leaves a blind faith that SOMEHOW, out of nothing, all matter came to existence…Now THAT requires a lot of faith!
