Zero Edge The big bang got debunked before creationism did....
☕ David Antoine For the big bang to be debunked you would need one or more irreconcilable observations with the current model. And probably some kind of new quantum gravity theory to explain what happened at the singularity. Provided you can make sense of time and find a physical equivalent of the mathematical infinite that the singularity represents. Creationism is just religious nonsense. At least the Bible's fundamentalist literal interpretation of the creation. Believing there is a super power at the origins of the universe itself is something I relate to spiritually but doesn't make me reject science. Both are not mutually exclusive for me.

Zero Edge You literally believe the same thing either way. Either something always existed or something came from nothing. You believe a highly complex system that is capable of self replication and capable of creating complex systems such as life itself popped into existence. Just the simple interaction such as "this early particle interacted with this early particle to create a reaction" is belief that something existed (a fundamental structure at the very least). Our system is complex and no matter how you try to explain it you either believe: Something came from nothing, or something always existed.
☕ David Antoine How that system capable of self replication started initially is one of the most difficult problem scientists are trying solve. It probably took several hundred millions of years and countless false starts to initiate in its simplest form and did not just "popped into existence". Finding other replication pathways with unique other life forms maybe in our own solar system may help in solving how it started. And that purely scientific endeavor works with or without God. Creationism doesn't work without God. Even if our civilization would disappear and then restart somehow fresh, the laws of physics will remain the same. Not religion.
