    You don’t have to be smart to understand physics, you’ll have to be a nerd! LOL ;)

    I teach physics, have a first class honours degree, graduated highest in my year and still believe in God.  Just because you don’t understand, doesn’t mean you ever will.

    PS: what are your qualifications? Lame-ass

      How can you possibly teach sciences and the scientific method and then believe in a god for which there has never been a single shred of evidence? Nothing in physics leaves room for silly superstition. And if your belief is based on the silly stories from a “holy book” written by a tiny tribe of ancient superstitious primitive people, then shame on you.

      And humility keeps me from telling you about my credentials.

        If you didn’t find it necessary to dazzle us with your humility, you might realize that credentials are a valid and necessary component to this argument, without which, your crude accusations of “tiny primitive tribes” telling “silly stories”, is shot to hell. Particularly since the writing of these insignificant savages, have been the single greatest shaping force in medieval and modern western civilization…

        Physics is not about proving or disproving God’s existence. That’s a matter for philosophers. I know this to be true, because of my past research in both fields.

          Physics is not about proving  or disproving “God’s” existence, no, but the rational approach that it depends on utterly destroys any credibility religion once had, whether “God” exists or not. Someone with enough sense to get an education in the finest science there is should be above  taking all that biblical bullshit seriously.

    I’m teaching physics now in a special section. I got high grades in physics and became a physics quizzer and at the same time won the said competition… but still, I believe, trust, and love GOD and JESUS CHRIST…

      Curious, what do you mean by “teaching physics in a special section”? Are you saying that you are a fully qualified physics teacher, or implying that you teach physics somewhere where a real qualification is not required? Have to ask because your comment makes you credentials/path to teaching physics sound dubious.

    The theme of god doesn’t belong to science. Science studies nature and god doesn’t belong to that theme. If you could prove scientifically that god exists, then there wouldn’t be more faith anymore, it would be a fact.

      That couldn’t be farther from the truth. True Classical physics studies nature, however quantum mechanics dives deep into the conscious mind.

    As a physicist I do believe that God probably exist, there are still chances

    Anyone who says they understand physics is foolish. There is so much to learn and understand about the Universe, and there are so many grey areas where science truly cannot provide a reasonable answer. As a good scientist, which apparently many of you are not, you cannot rule out things that you cannot test. As of right now, I see no way in determining whether or not there is a God, there can be evidence to support either side, and until someone can prove without a doubt the origins of the universe (The big bang theory has it’s gaping holes in it… thus the ‘Theory’ portion), there will never be an end to this pitiful argument of block-headed individuals who fail to see the true complexity that is The Universe. To say there is no God is just as pathetically closed-minded as to believe fully in God. Shame on all of you.

      “There can be evidence to support either side” – I’d really like to see that “evidence” for god. What your really saying is ” there are things that science can’t yet explain, so we shall call that hole in our knowledge god”. 

      I see absolutely no need to claim that a god exists simply because we don’t yet understand something.

      How in the world can you call yourself a “good scientist”?  I can guarantee you are not even an actual scientist, much less a good one since everything you said shows a complete lack of understanding of science.  As Paul pointed out below, you can’t just decide that a gap in knowledge leaves a gap for god.  “… you cannot rule out things that you cannot test.”  What kind of crap statement is that?  I have a colony of infinitely small yard gnomes living in my ass.  You cannot test this as they are infinitely small.  Does this mean it is equally valid as the theory that I don’t have gnomes in my ass?  As Hitchens said, “That which can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.”  You said, “The big bang theory has it’s [sic] gaping holes in it… thus the ‘Theory’ portion”.  The only gaping hole here is in your scientific knowledge.  One of the biggest clues you are not a scientist at all as you have NO IDEA what constitutes a scientific theory.

    Belief in what you can perceive and faith in what you can’t have no connection to each other. These are entirely independent concepts. The only time you get into trouble is when you try to combine perception and faith, or science and God.

    Don’t combine science and God. Ever.

    Everyone realizes that this site is called unfollowingjesus.com right?  I always find it odd that theists actively search for atheistish websites like this one (especially one as obviously comedic as this), and try to argue as though the comment thread for this silly image is really a good forum for theological discourse (I realize the irony inherent in me participating while condemning, but since the gauntlet has been thrown down, it might as well be picked up).  Also, while this image is a bit broad in it’s assumption, unfortunately, at least in my experience with most (not all) religious zealots, it seems to be the prevailing attitude.  Not that all creationists are ignorant and uneducated, but again, it does seem to be a prevalent attribute.

    I will also not post my credentials, because I don’t have any, save for the fact that I am a thinking person.  Whether you have a PhD or a GED, as long as you can read and comprehend (assuming you choose to do so), you possess all the necessary faculties to take part in any debate (again assuming that you choose to research the intended topic)… Just my opinion.

      I find it weird that there are atheist websites in the first place.  What is the point of being atheist if you waste as much time as the theists do with their rabble?

      • Paul O'Flaherty March 13, 2012 at 3:13 pm - Reply

        Possibly due to the fact that if we didn’t provide a counter-argument, contrary view or place for discussion then the theists would run riot with zero opposition.

    as a physicist, I know (or am at least aware of) how much I do not know.

    I will probably make a comment on this and never return to this page.  I was merely looking for an interesting photo on Physics to use for my facebook page and stumbled upon this image.  With that being said I am currently a PHD student in Physics and if anyone can actually say they know enough to “disprove” the possibility of any “God”, they are lying to you.  Once you get a degree in Physics you realize how little YOU know about the world.  This image should read: PHYSICISTS: Just because you’re not smart enough to know what they’re talking about doesn’t mean they know what they are talking about either.  It’s all good to poke fun, but let’s not be unnecessary here.  I can guarantee the person who made this image knows very little about the field of Physics.

    I am a physics major, and have been involved with physics/mathematics research for quite some time. Concerning the whole “God” issue. I do consider myself a spiritual individual, though not religious. Religion is basically bullshit. I do believe in something. Of course my idea of “God” is in a non dualistic sense. More so of energy, and our consciousness. I believe the laws of physics can be described as “God” “God” could be that experience. I don’t believe that it can be defined. Certainly by no religious nutjobs preaching the bible. I don’t follow no book or creed, People, the bible is just a bunch of stolen stories of earlier ancient civilizations who preached mythology. What bothers me about it most is that they can believe in stories that make absolutely no sense and offer absolutely no shred of any evidence, but when science confronts them with mathematical reasoning and evidence, they dismiss it as hocus pocus!?!

      Thank you for your non-ignorant comment. I as well believe in God such the same way that you do.

        Actually quantum physics is just the part of physics for Sub atomic particles that are so tiny they follow different laws than relativity which is why physicists are trying to find a TOE (theory of everything) to connect Relativity and Quantum Physics and even if physics doesn’t prove God exists that doesn’t mean he doesn’t exist we’re only trying to study how the universe works

    1.physics is everything for atheists.we have to discover lots of things about physical world but atheists says that physics leaves no room for god.we dont know what physics will bring in future.
    2.atheits simply deny proofs of god.for example,bible says 7 seven is holy number,we can fin 7 everywhere in bible and we see 7 everywhere in universe like 7 colors of rainbow,7 musical sound,in one second light can travel 7 times around around,why?
    3.definately atheists hates christianity and dont think honestly
    4.newton,galileo,copernicus etc founders of physics were devot christians and were inspired by god.

    sorry for my mistake…in point
    2 i mean light can travel 7 times around earth

    • Heathf July 1, 2012 at 2:19 pm - Reply

      7.4906 times per seconds actually… Even if it was ‘exactly’ 7 times per second, no one intelligent enough would be saying that because of that one coincidence, god exists! (You’d be a person who’d have a pretty low standard for demanding the proof of god)
      Does the fact that the last shit I took was 7 inches long, prove that god is real?.. Or that maybe if I measured with the other side of my ruler, my ‘lucky’ 7 inch shit is no longer ‘lucky’ when actually it equals 17.8cm..

    Is not neccesary to be Physic to beleive in God, but is a good start. If you kwon more about how the world is made you realize that have rules that someone put it to make it possible it work, and still working to mantain it as we know and don’t change the things one day yes and another day too.
