Just to clarify


I don't think your correct. I am referring to the first and second law of Thermodynamics. A full explanation would be long and off topic.

Thanks for the offer of websites but I find most sites are unreliable for research.

What do you think he's incorrect about? What about the first and second law of Thermodynamics?

My question is this: Since infinity has no beginning, and no end, and since God is eternal with no beginning, and no end, then when did he make, or even think about making the earth. I have faith, and believe in God, so is the answer simply that we are unable to comprehend it?

I have posted some thoughts on this in Others > Interested in Proof of Macroevolution. Post #7
Scroll down to the 2nd half of that post.

Unreality is correct about energy not being lost. Energy cant be lost. It can only be transferred from one form into another. Often however it is viewed as being "lost" when it is transferred into heat or sound energy as they are normally viewed as "waste".

Just clearing things up. Although i dont think it has any particular relevance.

And also although i am not familiar with the 1st and 2nd laws of thermodynamics, i believe that they are talking about a certain "system" or area, as opposed to the entire universe, so energy that is lost from the "system" is simply escaping into a different part of the universe.

" The entropy of the universe increases in all natural processes."this is an alternate way of stating the seconed law of thermodynamics. Order to disorder.

Well this is an easy one! He made the earth (according to the bible) somewhere around 6 thousand years ago! God is eternal - However this earth is not. (Thank God!) So if the question is 'when did He think about making the earth?', Wow, the bible cleary says that his ways are higher than our ways. and that no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.
So we cannot begin to understand the creation of heaven or earth. To explain creation and theorys of creation is nonsense! It is clearly written the NO MIND CAN CONCEIVE!

IFyou believe in god then I would agree with Emapher. Obviously god doesnt want to be dethroned or analyzed by someone who can think better than he can :D

I am unsure of the existence of God althought some things to point towards it. Other people may know the answer to this but i do not and am open to correction and criticism. But why did the big bang happen and at the time it did??? Surely there must have been something to start it....? Or was something building up to it reacting more and more till explosion, but then who or what provided the start of the reaction???

yeah that's why I'm skeptical of the big bang... I think the universe has been around forever, or something, I dont really know. There are a lot of specialized scientists who make their lives studying that kinda stuff so they probably know about it and why it happened and then and so on, though to be honest I dont really care
