How do you know which is right and which is wrong. It all lies where you place your faith. Personally I think my belief has made me a better person and I am grateful that I have the faith that I do. There are a great many others who have a faith in God like I do. You may think that God has done nothing to show who he is, but there is a strong record that he walked the Earth 2 thousand years ago and the significance of the Christian faith is a testament to it.

There is an equally "strong record" that God revealed the Qur'an to Muhammad, God's final prophet.

There is an equally "strong record" that the Angel Moroni visited Joseph Smith and delivered God's final message on golden plates.

There is an equally "strong record" that Vishnu is the all-pervading essence of all beings.

To a rational person, all of these various mythologies and their respective creation myths are granted equivalent credibility. By their nature it's only possible for, at most, one of them to be accurate. When viewed as a whole it seems tremendously unlikely that any of them are correct.

None of these mythologies remotely resemble science. Most importantly, all of these mythologies are at odds with what we can observe and predict about nature and the world we live in.


Now there are a growing number of creationist scientists who are making progress to show that this earth and all that is in it was created.

No there are not.


it has been decades since any ideas contrary to evolution were actively sought by mainstream science.

Similarly, it has been decades since any ideas contrary to gravity were actively sought by mainstream science.
