Faith, yes, and that's all, faith. Nothing more.

Maybe, but we still cannot know these things though.

And yet again, somebody disbelieves because they do not understand it; I've seen this too many times before. The universe we know today did not come out of nothing. I'd reccomend reading up on the big bang here (may not be the best site, but you could always find others yourself). Apart from anything else, that's a bit hypocritical because you have not said how God has come into being and don't say that he was always there or doesn't need to because you could say the same about the universe or whatever came before it.

That's the last thing that can be done; religion and science don't mix, ever.

Some random man who nobody has ever even met ust clicked his fingers and suddenly, poof! The whole universe appeared from nowhere started swirling into place. He then decided that he wanted all the life forms to appear and so he simply told the world what he wanted and it just appeared. Makes perfect sense.

Why don't you ask God? Couldn't he fill you in on what's been happening? Prayer is real, right?

Nice of you to say so, but I'm afraid I've got more.

We kill people who kill people to show others that killing is wrong.
