If you can say "proof of the creator is all around you"?
I've read that question asked a million times, with the same "he always was" answer; the same person will turn around and say something like "if I give you a machine and ask who created it, you would say, its manufacturer or creator-- it's the same with the world!"
If the answer to god's "existence" doesn't guarantee a creator, neither does existence in general! If something HAD to "create" the world, something HAD to create the creator.
I just don't understand how theists can hold their own theory to a lower standard than mine. I mine, I certainly hold theirs lower-- but they're the ones who live their lives by said theory.
