    - Entropy does not apply to every physical principle. It primarily refers to thermodynamics, and the most important feature of entropy is that it only works that way in a CLOSED system. Outside factors can reduce or reverse entropy.

    - Entropy doesn't even remotely apply to evolution.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Please explain how entropy bars natural development of intelligence.

    No, we don't know what happened. Maybe space aliens??

    Maybe a unicorn ****ed a platypus, who knows? We have ideas of how it might have gone down, but human intelligence is some pretty complex ****.

    Re: Do you believe in God?

    I believe in God, but God is entirely transcendent. It's impossible for us humans to understand God. For me, God is an abstract concept. Maybe it does not even matter so much if God exists "out there" or just in the minds of humans.

    The only way to get a remote understanding of God is through His messengers: Moses, Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed or Baha'u'llah. But the way they describe God is not the "real deal", just very limited analogies suited for the limited human mind.
    "Not learning from mistakes is worse than committing mistakes. When you don't allow yourself to make mistakes, it is hard to be tolerant of others and it does not allow even God to be merciful."

    There is no need to "explain existence with God." Millions of souls have come and gone throughout the course of human history embracing and espousing "God" concepts of an unfathomable variety. Still, these souls passed through their brief existence, from birth to death, regardless of the ultimate veracity of their particular "God" concept neither better nor worse for the experience for as much as we presently extant humans can presently know.

    The primal perception of an awesome, omnipresent, universal entity preceded the evolution of human objectivity and all its subsequent concepts, including the myriad of God concepts which have evolved concomitant with human experience, up to this very day. It is one of the great absurdities of human neurological evolution that we have been veiled from this most precious primal perception which other sentient beings, including our own cats and dogs, readily enjoy.

    Are you saying you think that dogs and cats can perceive god?

    If so, that's an interesting theological concept.
