Which Belief Requires a Bigger Leap of Faith?

Just as the title says. Which belief requires the greater leap of faith? Which claim is easiest to support with factual evidence?

Seeing that life actually begins before conception.

Banned for being too stupid to even notice the word new in the question.

No he's still right... That sperm and egg cell were alive before conception.

This one. How am I supposed to believe that the universe just happened?

The Big Bang requires more proof. Apparently, it all started with some dense matter in the center of space. Of course it could never be randomly created, so we must asume that the dense matter has allways been there. Now if the dense matter has allways been there, why has energy suddenly come out of it and caused it to explode. There is nothing there to cause it!

Though both can be (and likely are) true - Obviously this one (the Big Bang Theory) is much harder to prove and therefore requires a somewhat greater 'leap of faith. '

for illiterate freaks it must definitely look strange

....just another from your pathetic tries to put abortion against something where it will look worst....

I have an idea for your next debate.:

What is worst?

Abortion vs. drinking water

The only thing more pathetic is your total lack of any consideration of the question. It's about the level of belief required and it was to bring some perspective to both debates. Fool.

Banned.

Knowing that matter can't be created (or that humans haven't figured out how to yet) or destroyed, yet matter exists due allegedly to the big bang, I have to go with this one with the huge loop hole.

It's true. Scientists can only theorize about how the universe began but they know for certain how a new life begins.

New Life begins at Conception

I do not consider this view/position to be strictly a belief; it is a fact of reality. It is pretty broad, but I will presume the topic is about specifically human life. As I understand the definition of what the word "faith" to mean is to place "trust and/or confidence in a person or thing"; this is the first definition given. So this being said I would have to take a leap of confidence and trust to "believe" in the Big Bang theory without any sound evidence that I can test for myself and would lead me beyond a reasonable doubt that it is fact. Versus something I have participated in the cause of (I am a father) with a female gender of human beings (my wife, the woman I am mutually committed to), have witnessed the ultrasound as well as the birth of that new life (our son).

Hmm, I think I will stick to "New Life begins at Conception" as factual based.

Since new life could be anything from a cell to an ant to a polar bear, I guess it would be pretty easy to believe that.

If you can believe that a polar bear can be created by conception.... why can't you accept that a human being is created by conception?

I believe they're possible lives at conception. It is a new life, but it is a new polar bear? I doubt it.

Yes, it is a new life.

And yes, it is a possible polar bear.

I think you would have to have a lot of faith in the Big Bang Theory and that out of the blue without any cause it sprung the universe into existence because I don't see how you would believe that something without a cause would spring into existence.

It is impossible to know for sure how the universe started. Not sure how the options are really related.

Easy. Some people have a harder time accepting the fact that a new life begins at conception than they do the idea (theory) about how the Universe began.

"Which one requires the bigger leap of faith?"

Exactly, there is really nothing relating those 2 topics. Thanks for clarifying.
