Unnatural Selection?
Luke 12:33
"Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth...
Just about every public school textbook once included the example of the peppered moth. The moth is used as a prime example of natural selection. Supposedly, as the trees in the English countryside...

Winning the lottery 3 times in a row is not impossible, just very very very improbable. And as I said, the idea that life on Earth began by chance is also very improbable. But there are known to be billions of planets in our universe. Look at it this way: if the odds of life beginning on Earth by chance are 1:1 billion, and there are a billion planets that can sustain life, then statistically, one of those planets would, by chance, have life on it. By no means am I saying that this is exactly what happened, and I'm not a scientist with years of research to back me up.

As far as "the Bible's track record of being absolutely correct" goes, I'm not sure where that is coming from. Just because you believe and have faith in what the Bible says, that does not make it true.

I'm all about doubt. And it's easier for me, using logic, to doubt that there is an all-powerful, all-intelligent being who can watch me, listen to my prayers, and who created the Earth, than it is to doubt that the Earth gained life by chance.

I'd also like to add that, unlike most Christians, I am not afraid to say, "Hey, maybe I'm wrong." But let's look at probability again. There are many religions in the world, all with different stories, and all claiming to have the answers. Christianity is a mere one of them. When looking at all these religions and all the other possibilities of answers to life and why we are here, I'd say Christianity is just another face in the crowd.

To end, I'd like for you all to think about this quote from Stephen Roberts: "I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours."
