Religion is a good thing, as long as you dont take it too seriously. In my oppinion you can believe all you want as long as you dont ignore whats going on around you, Amish people would be a good example. I see religion more as a guideline, it teaches you important values like though shall not kill etc. Problem is that even fundamentalists break those rules. Just look at Pro Life people. I think the main problem is that you can interprete the bible in every way, even in the way that it excuses killing.
In our society religion is, at least in my oppinion, a big problem. Even the bible you hold in your hands today is not the original. It has been altered at least 5-6 times. And to do something just because a book tells you to do it is not very intelligent, you gotta admit that.
I cant speak for other religions though because I mainly focused my research on Christianity.
Personally I believe that there are things we dont understand nor see and if you wanna interprete this as a religion, well heck, go ahead.
But to get to the "creation part" here. We know that the Universe was created in a pretty big explosion and that the particles bound together to form gas clouds is not random, its a law of physics. Through that process something similar to our sun formed which produced many elements we see today on our earth. The main problem is that we dont know HOW the Big Bang got here in the first place. But to say "God made it" doesnt solve the problem because if he did it...Where did he come from?
To me, it seems only logical to thing that the universe and everything in it was created by a god. Everything is so complex and organized, and it just seems improbable that it could've "just happened". It's like throwing a truck load of legos up in the air and having them land in such a formation that a perfect statue of yourself appears before you. It's theoretically possible, but how many times does that actually happen?

Ok, if you think of an explosion in an empty space, it would go on and on and on, right?
Now imagine that the explosion worked similar to an atom bomb, which means you've got at least some Atoms floating around in this empty space. All these have different weights so sooner or later they will attract themselves. What do we get? A lot of particles very close to each other. Through the friction those particles got hotter and hotter, until finally they reacted. Now we have our first sun, ok maybe its not as big as our sun but its the same principle. And what do you get if you put some atoms/particles together and put energy in it? You get a reaction which has a byproduct: New Atoms/particles. Correct me if Im wrong but this is how I understand the Big Bang.
Now to get to life on our planet. We had all these Atoms on our planet and also the new ones, for example carbon. Now I dont rly know how they developed further I just know that at some point amino acids formed which then bonded together to form long strings, with long I mean microscopic, called RNA. Through our atmosphere, which emmited a whole lot of energy, they combined and formed new things and one of those was DNA, a helix. Now the rest should be common knowledge if you werent asleep during biology class.
3 Edits should be enough for now ;d
