Your profile reflects your reputation, it will build itself as you create new debates, write arguments and form new relationships.
You are using the argument from ignorance: "We don't yet understand how everything in the world came to be, so a bearded omnipotent deity must have done it."
We don't have to explain practically everything yet. I use science to make sense of the world, and it doesn't matter that science doesn't know everything, because what science does know is true and holds up to the test of investigation.
There is no evidence for Genesis. There is evidence for the Big Bang. I find it really hard to believe that in the beginning, there was nothing, and then suddenly God appeared, and made some light (even though energy cannot be created or destroyed, and light it a type of energy)... it just doesn't make any sense. And just because it isn't how you picture things doesn't mean it is true.
In my debates, I like to prove that God cannot exist, rather than does not exist. So here is some proof.
1. God violates the laws of physics. Remember in the beginning of most holy books, like the Bible, when God creates the heavens and the earth?
Well, look at this law of physics:
No matter or energy can be created or destroyed.
And there you have it! Proof that God does not exist.
The Bible says that God is omnipotent. Omnipotence is impossible, because in order to be truly omnipotent, God would be able to create a rock so large that even he cannot lift it. But then he is not omnipotent, if he cannot lift the rock. And if he can't create the rock, he is not omnipotent.
I just proved that god does not exist
Paedophilia harms no-one unless it is acted upon.
Expecting people not to act on their sexuality though is of course unrealistic.
But now we're back to square one: paedophilia is harmful. This path of reasoning changes nothing.
My point was only that we shouldn't really have opposite attitudes to essentially what is the same issue: abnormal sexual attraction.
I think we can, considering that gayness harms no one, while paedophilia does cause harm to children.
I am probably a good person but I haven't taken the time to fill out my profile, so you'll never know!
