True seeing is not always a 'must' in believing. I have never seen God the creator but do believe in him.
In considering questions related to the origin of life, popular opinion or emotion sway many. To avoid this and to reach accurate conclusions, we need to consider the evidence with an open mind. It is interesting to note, too, that even evolution’s best-known advocate, Charles Darwin, indicated an awareness of his theory’s limitations. In his conclusion to The Origin of Species
, he wrote the “…view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one,” thus making it evident that the subject of origins was open to further examination. What Darwin beleived in a Creator? Thats crazy talk
Like you I keep an open mind, but just haven’t “seen” any evidence of a Big Bang creating life. Nor have I read or heard of an argument that convinces me that a creator was not responsible for life. But I do keep an open mind.
