@vilem:
1) No. It was in response to: "Given enough time, resources and willpower science throughout history has constantly proven everything we put to the test and will continue to do so."
2)Wrong. Dead wrong. For example, everyone agrees that stealing is wrong. Every culture around the world. Some may steal anyway, but if someone steals their stuff they feel wronged. As for killing, everyone universally thinks murdering innocent people is wrong. Of course there is always going to be outliers. I am talking as a whole, it is shared throughout the world despite being completely unconnected.
3)Again, explain conscience. Having done research on the matter myself, some scientists even conclude that it is not possible for it to be solely contained within the mind. When it comes to animals, I do agree they have a conscience, but not on our level (we are not different in degree, but kind). You cannot teach animals concepts, even the most simple of ones. You cannot teach an

"1)Actually it would be impossible to understand what happened before the big bang. All evidence would be destroyed"

You've got a fundamental misunderstanding of the core concept. The big bang created the universe, thus, the evidence for this theory is all around us. Thats how they came up with the theory, they observed what was happening and came up with the most likely explanation.

"If you cannot back up your reasoning for what you believe, don't bother acting like it is right."

Personally, as an aethiest, I believe I`ve taken a rational viewpoint by always questioning what is most likely. I know that some things cannot be explained by Science, indeed I`m sure Science will never be able to explain everything. However that just means we don`t know how some stuff works, or worked, not that a higher being must be controlling things.

So - that`s a double-edged sword Znaught.

Why do you believe in God?

Who said humans across the globe are unconnected?
we are the same the world over our psyche is the same the world over thats why psychologists tell us that human traits the world over are the same.
Murderers in Venzuela think the same way as murderers in Australia think the only difference is the geographical location.
We share the same thought processes the same reasoning ability the same cognitive functioning the only variations are through geographical considerations.
And as has been explained to you earlier but you choose to ignore it has been shown that we have evolved to live in the way we do by generally having the same morals, again slight variations apply but generally for us to function as a society we have to share an evolved common moral grounding.
