Now you're debating science in a religion thread. This should be tons of fun. Let's dance, trevor.

Yes, you are right, there was not more matter, but rather, all known matter in the universe was part of a singularity. I suggest you go research what a singularity is.

This speck was everything. You cannot define a location without relation to another object.

The Big Bang theory is the best theory we have to explain the expansion of the universe, not the origin of the universe. If you're into astronomy, you should be well familiar with the red shift phenomenon that lets us measure the distance between ourselves and other stars, nebulae, galaxies, etc. The face that everything is moving away is undeniable. You can see it happening for yourself if you measure the night sky with a telescope and some observation. Because we can see everything is moving away now, it is only logical for us to assume that, if we go backwards in time, everything will be moving towards everything else, and eventually it all must've been clumped together. That is the Big Bang theory in a nutshell.

Evolution says we evolved from simpler organisms over time. But this would begin with the single cells, yes. Just a minor correction there.

Single cells multiply via asexual reproduction. You should've learned this in 9th grade Biology, if not earlier.

This would not be cancer because the cells don't grow at an uncontrolled, unreasonable rate. You don't see a fully formed human simply building itself out of single cells in a few weeks or months or years.

Logically, a fish would become an amphbian before it becomes a fully land-based species. Perhaps due to a change in sea levels, previously mid-deep sea dwelling organisms were forced to adapt to living in a shallow-water environment.

Animals don't just suddenly decide to give birth to an amazingly more evolved offspring. That's not how evolution works. Small changes occur over time (such as the genetic differences you have that do not resemble either of your parents(microevolution)) and if you observe these small changes over a grand period of time, such as a few million years, you end up with an organism that looks completely unlike what used to be.

Evolution in the real world is not like evolution in Pokemon.

If you want to be anal about it, go ahead. But science has no method of proving or disproving the existence of God, and therefore no God is mentioned in science because it would take away from the falsifiability of theories.

Also, we get it. The Big Bang and Evolution are theories. A theory in scientific context is NOT like a theory in every day context. I am sick and tired of having to explain the difference to uneducated, ignorant people such as yourself, so I'm not even going to bother. Saying "It's just a theory" will get you laughed at.

Ha-ha-ha.
