God's works are always questioned because He gave us a free will to do with what we wish and to question and believe, to love and to hate, to agree and disagree. We question because we are human and we are human because we questioned.--CRD 22:04, 11 July 2007 (EDT)

I think that God's works are questioned because our perception of God is so limited. The majority of people view God as a benevolent, loving, but stearn creator/magician/father figure. If that is what God is all about then we constantly have to wonder why God's creation contains pain, suffering and death. We also have to stuff our beliefs about how the world works into a creator/created way of thinking. Other cultures have had complex mythologies that essentially show God as having many faces; some good, some bad, some loving, some destroying, etc. The Old Testament God was more like that type of being. Maybe if our God were bigger, we might realize that the important questions aren't concerning God's works at all but our own. Like the Buddha we would simply set it aside and concentrate our efforts on living the right life in the here and now. Wismike

How is this a scientific debate?

Science has not shown any proofs for existence of god. Also science questions every thing. From perspective of science, there is no god. Man made god in man's image (at least one group)--JBuscombe 14:31, 18 November 2007 (EST)

Within or without? Half full or half empty? There is no such thing as science having a perspective. Only individuals are in a position to gain a perspective. The proof of the existence of God is the created universe. There are those that would prefer that God never existed so that their own works won't be questioned. Of course they may be wrong. Whether you believe you evolved from a pool of slime or are an intelligently created being will be your own choice. The real question is whether you will ever recognize it when the answer to this question has been given to you?--Roopilots6 12:22, 16 April 2008 (EDT)

simple you can't test them, when your god decides to hand over some blood then I will believe. (Gosweden)

Simple answer: Science goes through rigorous peer-review and retesting. Most 100 year old history books aren't reliable- why should thousand year old text books be treated any differently than one of those? The stories they list aren't testable, or falsifiable, or generally evidenced by anything in nature (as they were written anonymously based on the beliefs of the times), so there isn't a reason to use scripture as scientific materials. There is no reason at all to think that they are scientifically valid without first validating them (which is the opposite of what has been shown).

Not everyone believes in God, in the same way as you

and whether you agree with them or not, it's a pretty good reason NRupert 14:04, 5 June 2008 (EDT)
