The Creation by LadyAway The Creation by LadyAway
this picture has come to my mind when I was thinking about evolution, you know, all these probability things. So, this must be how it really began :P

Now, seriously:

A question to evolutionists: how could the stripes of a tiger be random? Every little hair has its own color, could it be mixed so perfectly just by accident? (remember, evolution is blind, it couldn't know the stripes are proper without checking it, and didn't even SEE the stripes as a pattern, just single hair that can be black, white or orange)

A question to creationists: if the probability of accidental making of just a part of the simplest organism is almost zero, what's the probability of accidental making/being-there forever some all-mighty, omniscient thing?

Answer from a creationist: If you actually understand what an all-mighty, omniscient God is, you will realize that he could create time. Although our human minds cannot comprehend the non-existence of time, that doesn't give us reason doubt that there was a time when there was no time. Since God is an all-mighty being, and created time, he could have easily been around forever with no beginning, because before he created them, there was no such thing as a beginning and no such thing as the concept of forever.

I can easily embrace the concept of no time, but there's this other problem - if so complex, beautiful, diverse and well-measured world is a proof that it was created by someone, how could an omnipotent, all-knowing, all-mighty being have been there forever? Wouldn't so complex deity (no one will say God is simpler than the world he created) need a creator too? He's beautiful, he's complex, he's perfect - how could something like this exist without a creator?

If he created time, that means he wouldn't be able to have a beginning.Without time, there is no beginning. God was forever there. Since God can be considered the most omnipotent, complex deity in existence, there is nothing that could be more omnipotent and complex, which means he has no creator, and simply decided to make the universe and time. There is probably a different dimension in which he lived that has concepts we don't have in our universe, therefore making it hard to understand how he could always be there.

But if he actually is perfect and absolute, why did he create the world? It would mean that when there was no world, he needed it to be - he needed something, therefore he wasn't absolute. What's more, he created humans to love him (another need), although without us he would have nothing to care about. What does he need the world for?

He created the world because he wanted to be able to create a world and intervene with it. He created it for the same reason that the scientist from Sword Art Online created his world.

I don't think it was the same reason - we, as animals, are driven by needs. Everything we do is to feel fulfilled, be it eating or creating. If God had to create world and humans to feel fulfilled, he most certainly wasn't perfect before. Because to want something, first you need to not have it. Perfect being has everything it could possibly need, so why would it create anything? If you were full, happy, rested, psychically fulfilled and not bored, you would only sit and be. Necessity is the mother of invention, need is the mother of creation, perfection is the mother of stagnation.

That isn't entirely true. He was fully contented, but he could still want to do something different. Having humans to love him and serve him would have been interesting.

I think you didn't understand me. Perfection is a state of having everything and not needing anything. It's a state we all try to (hopelessly) reach. If you seem to have it all and still need something, then you're not perfect. According to your depiction, God was a little bit bored, and he created us to feel better.

Piękna praca. Jeśli chodzi o wygląd smoków, to bardziej przypadł mi do gustu czarny, jednakowoż obydwa są bardzo dobrze wykonane :)
