Do you believe in God and why?

Do you believe in God and why?

my anwer on Facebook thread (latest group I joined*):

Creation and Flood with Tower of Babel are known from divergent sources (with divergent divine or quasidivine explanations) from all over the world, and also in the Hebrew tradition with full genealogies in Genesis.

The Exodus as written in the Book of that name has been presupposed as what actually remembered in all later Hebrew history.

The Incarnation (Annunciation, Birth, Hidden and Public Life of Our Lord, Crucifixion and Resurrection with Ascension) as had in the Four Canonic Gospels has ever since the first Pentecost been presupposed in all later Church History as what actually remembered.

In both later instances the corroborating evidence is not so much between different written sources on same event as between the written sources and the community that preserved them and was constituted by them.

All this gives a strong historic bias in favour of the Triune God being the author of these events, a bias which remains unshaken by false philosophising and spurious arguments against the genuine authorship of the Gospels.


See also philosophical reason:

Aquinas and Creationism
"Aquinas says that the forms of corporeal creaures that exist could not have come from one form in the beginning, because then they would be accidents off that original corporeal form. Is it possible for the forms that resulted from that original corporeal form to not be accidents, and if so, how? (Obviously this relates to the Big Bang.)"

Materialism is opposed to thomism precisely in considering corporeal things as accidents of protons, neutrons and electrons in the combinations known as atoms and ions.

Even without thomism - is it biologically possible for mammals with one chromosome number to evolve from mammals with a clearly different one?


a) all mammal individuals are diploid, that is: chromosomes go in pairs

b) each chromosome belongs to its own set, which in mammals means: its own pair

c) three or one chromosomes in one pair are a malformation, not the beginning of one pair more or less

d) chromosomes are only counted in natural numbers, not in infinitesimal fractions anyway (yes, genes are infinitesimal fractiosn of chromosomes, and yes, the chromosomes do change genes, or so people who study presumed chromosome evolutions say; but the issue is the chromosomes, not the individual genes)
