except that matter can be destroyed and if matter was infinite that wouldn't be so

if we did not evolve then we were created
what other option is there?
Lacrimo wrote:3) Quantum Mechanics allows a particle and anti-particle to pop into existence in relatively empty space. Something can be made from nothing, so long as you make some anti-something in equal quantity. This is the driving force behind Hawking Radiation.
in my box analogy there is nothing no anti-particle and no particle
besides how could these particles and anti-particles pop into existance with out anyone or any GOD guiding them
Lacrimo wrote:4) Your box analogy leads to ad infintum reasoning. If you can't make something from nothing, where did this creator come from? You either need to make an infinite number of creators to justify the next one, or you need to say that your creator is eternal. If you say the creator is eternal, Occam's Razor forces you to save a step and say that the Universe is eternal.
my argument is not that the universe was created but the matter in that universe
the universe as in the space of the universe may be eternal
but the matter/light/heat/energy/waves/etc. was created
Lacrimo wrote:5) If intelligent design is true, why do humans have tailbones? There are many examples of body parts not at all needed in creatures. This is explained in evolution, not at all in ID.
it is the end of the spine whether or not it is called a tailbone
animals with tails just have extended spines that are called tail

DNA is like a smart program or slice of code that adapts.
think about it this way if you were God would you create a fly that could adapt to the environment or
not be able adapt and then die off
Lacrimo wrote:7) Do you think your simplistic logic hadn't occurred to all the Ph.d physicists out there? You think others haven't asked those questions of them? You either believe that you know more than the collective knowledge of every physicist out there, or that there is a conspiracy to hide ID for some reason.
well if you were average and sinned all the time would you allow
a little logic to make you feel guilty?
