im going to need to see your evidence that the world is working with out him.
For reference, see: Science. Most all of it.
The whole "debating on the internet" thing.
Justin has some medical issues with his writing abilities. He's ok, we make allowances.
I don't remember him ever saying that his writing disability extended to logical thinking, however.
I'm not saying science disproves god, or that a believer can't find a way for them to work together.
But science does build a compelling picture of a universe that does not require a god to work. You can keep putting god into those places science hasn't figured out yet - but what then when it does? The "god of the gaps" is an untenable position.
Science will likely never be able to disprove the existence of god. Nor would I claim he doesn't exist. My claim is only that I have not seen anything that suggests he does, or that he is required (much less any particular god) for the universe to work as we see it. There is no evidence in the function of the universe (or our world) *for* god.
But believers have done without such evidence for thousands of years. Believe what you will. Just don't claim you have evidence, when at best, you have a partial case for plausibility without a demonstrated need. It's a bit like saying your car runs because of the burning fuel in the engine (etc.), but also because of god. It works without the god part. The function of the car doesn't demonstrate god's existence - only that he *could* be there, doing the same thing the engine already does.
I understand what you are saying, but we do not have evidence for that. Again, the god of the gaps - if you want to believe god created the physical constants - go right ahead, but there is nothing to suggest he did. As I stated before, there is alot about them we don't know, including that they may not even be the key to the structure of the universe - they might just be all we can see.
And the "why" is not something that can be tested.
Saying that the "why" is god's work, doesn't tell us anything. First off, we don't know that it actually was god. Then we don't know which god. Then, we still don't know why. "God did it" doesn't provide an answer. It just shoves the question up a level.
It might be depressing to say there is no point at all, but deciding that therefor there must be a god to give the universe a purpose, doesn't follow logically.
It may be that there is no point.
We can't know.
All we can do is decide how to live our own lives, and derive our own purpose.
and the time
