My argument, with sources, for my definition of ‘faith’ and tear down atheists strawman of “faith means believing without evidence”.
“People who believe in God don’t need proof of his existence, and they certainly don’t want evidence to the contrary. They are happy with their belief. They even say things like “it’s true to me” and “it’s faith.” - Ricky Gervais
I am just using Ricky as an example. Ricky, and many atheists, do not know what biblical faith is because he just does not care to know.
Biblically, faith means trust. It’s a trust by evidence seen. God asks that we prove things. To reason. To get knowledge. To study. God has nothing to hide. We develop trust from what is seen, and that which is not seen yet is trusted also because of the trust built up from what is seen. It’s much like a human relationship. We don’t trust much until a person has gained that trust from what is observed. The difference is though, God is not limited to human powers. He created us.
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Ricky, and others, can’t even explain the start, creation, and yet he acts so smugly.
My Main Point:
Real science says nothing does nothing. *Real science says if there was something there already it must fit with the evidence of what we know.
We know the 1LT says there’s a conservation of energy. It can change forms and neither can be created or destroyed. Creation cannot happen by natural means.
The 2LT has various aspects, one being the universe is winding down, entropy. Usable energy is becoming less usable, so at one point usable energy was at its max.
This all points to a supernatural creation, by a supernatural creator at a certain point in which matter, space, and time were created. When I read how it can happen otherwise, ALL the fools resort to science-fiction. Once a supernatural creation is accepted, then the next step is finding proof of what supernatural power did it.
We can’t even get science without God. The laws of nature only can come from a Lawgiver, God.
