Still won't convince a creationist

“I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up—many people feel small, because they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.”

-Neil deGrasse Tyson

When the great markets by the sea shut fast
All that calm Sunday that goes on and on:
When even lovers find their peace at last,
And Earth is but a star, that once had shone.

James Elroy Flecker ( 1884 - 1915 )

Even back then he realised just how small we are. And great we can be.

If this makes you feel insignificantly small, it shouldn't.

The universe is for all intents and purposes is infinite to us. If you could count one star a second without ever sleeping for around 100 years non stop, you might just about count 1/100th of the stars in our own galaxy. And our galaxy is just a tiny insignificant portion of the universe.

What matters is the world you live in - what is around you on a daily basis and how you interact with your world. Where you go and what you do. And what you choose to do with your life. Don't feel small and insignificant. Go and make a difference to your life and those close to you.

#8 I definitely agree. There is a watchmaker...

#8 On the other hand, should it not convince anyone that so much complex detailed randomness didn't require a maker. What would be the point?

"Chance".. like you know what it is.
Scientists in general strongly hold the "no gods required" viewpoint, in that nature is capable of doing what it does on its own.

Natural selection is nothing else but keeping only the best of everything. Over time it accumulates to create complex creatures and systems...

And the very process, the "keeping only the best" isn't controlled or directed either - it's only logical that the weakest die out quicker, the strongest survive.
I know it's strictly about biological evolution, but it shows how entropy isn't what some people think it is. That Simple to Complex is not god's hand...

#14 Not really "keeping only the best" or "Strongest survive"..more like "what adapts best to the current environment" and it all can change in an instant.
