Ok, I think that everyone keeps saying that there is 'no proof' of god/religion, you are correct (although some could argue that there is proof, lets say that it is all happenstance). Religion is not about proof, its about belief, what you believe may or may not be true, such as a round/flat earth, santa clause, and aliens. Christianity, Islam, and yes, even Evolution are all beliefs, religions.
I myself am Christian, but I was leaning toward Evolution a while ago.
I like to base my beliefs on science, and NOTHING but science.
Evolution may still be possible, but until they thouroughly PROOVE it, I tend to think they rely on so much chance, that a god existing has just as much chance of being right as well. An ex-evolution scientist has done the sums, and calculated that a cyclone that sweeps through a junkyard and assembles a boeing 747 has the same chance of occurring as evolution. This is NOT an estimate, it is a calculation. If you dont know how hard it is to assemble a boeing 747, think of the wires, the seats, the engines and frame. So for me, Evolution now has such a small chance of being true, that it is considered neglible.
Some problems with Evolution:
-Spiral galaxies spin themselves up at a certain rate, if the earth was billions of years old, there would be no spiral galaxies left
-The big bang, where did matter come from in the first place? evolution does not answer that.
-No 'in-between' fossils, millions of fossils of creatures in the process of evolving should be evident, which dont exist
-Carbon dating has been known to give very dodgy results, eg. week-old rocks appear to be millions of years old
-In modern experience, life forms of all kind degrade. They dont become better and better, they suffer from DNA mistake and defformations.
-Oceans become saltier. If the earth was billions of years old, the water would be far more saltier than it is now.
-Magnetic Field. The magnetic field degrades over time, so if we back-track that billions of years ago, the magnetic field would be so strong that it would be impossible for life to survive (eg. we would die if we existed billions of years ago with a magnetic field that strong)
-these are just some reasons, there are MANY more
As for other religions, I cannot say that they are definitely wrong, or right, and I found that they seemed, lets say, 'dodgy'. So Christianity was left by a proccess of elimination. And humanitarianism, (long word
) ie. the lack of religion, did not satisfy my thoughts, (humans had to have come from somewhere, and so does matter in general), so that was eliminated as well.
Religion is based on belief, and each religion has a chance of being right, Christianity was my choice, based on its values and moral concepts ect. I also thought that it had the most chance of being right, but I cannot disprove, without a doubt, that a different religion is wrong/right.
