I have just addeda whole new page to the blog just for creationists to ask questions. Just click on the tab above to take a look.Please DO NOT post your questions in the comments thread of THIS post, rather enter them into the comments of the creationist questions page. Thank you.
Can god create a stone so heavy that He Himself can not lift it?
Can God hide himself so subtly in creation that no amount of scientific digging will unearth his heavenly activity?
What’s it afraid of?
Spoiling man’s search.
Perhaps just giving us the chance to choose in an uncertain world.
To answer more seriously (unlike my response to the God/Rock question above), IF there was an all powerful god, then yes, it could make anything in any way, that is why the “god did it” explanation is scientifically useless.
I understand and see it is self defeating, but can we conclude that there is no God or creative force since we cannot find any?
Short answer, no, we cannot absolutely rule the existence of such a being/force (vague!) out. However we do not, or should not, operate under the principle of granting serious consideration to every possible thing that cannot absolutely be ruled out. That would be a very long list of possibilities indeed. Better to only give credence to things for which we have good reasons to do so.
Yes that makes sense for all sorts of things maybe possible, but there is some room for speculation about knotty problems that seem unanswerable.
Move him into the sun –
Gently its touch awoke him once,
At home, whispering of fields unsown.
Always it woke him, even in France,
Until this morning and this snow.
If anything might rouse him now
The kind old sun will know.
Think how it wakes the seeds, –
Woke, once, the clays of a cold star.
Are limbs, so dear-achieved, are sides,
Full-nerved – still warm – too hard to stir?
Was it for this the clay grew tall?
– O what made fatuous sunbeams toil
To break earth’s sleep at all?
The last two lines are my question as well as Wilfred Owens
