If this world was started by an accident then that means we are accidents, therefore worth nothing. What is there to live for in a life that was started without purpose?
To me life is worth nothing without Christ. All I can do is share the Truth with you. If I don't use scripture to back up what I say then it will be ineffective. I alone can't do anything. Only by Christ working through me can I share.
The Future Is Bright! Hotty Toddy
Using scripture to convince atheists of anything is ineffective. Accidents can have great worth. Some of the greatest discoveries, were discovered on accident. all you are doing by saying there is a god is pushing out the meaning by one level. What is the purpose of your god? If you think there is no purpose for man without god, then there is no purpose for god without something greater than god, ad infinitum.
You don't have to be able to see it - you're well aware that of the 7 billion or so people on the earth right now, 5 billion don't believe and will end up in hell. You're intrinsically aware because someone is either in heaven or hell, and if they aren't in heaven with you (something you could easily check), you know they're being tortured.
Antibiotics were found completely on accident. Why should we use them, right, as they weren't purposefully designed?
Revelation 21:4 NKJV
"And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
We won't know you are in eternal torment. We won't even have a remembrance of you. That's why we tell the Truth while we can.
How can you claim they weren't purposefully designed? If you look from a creation point of view then it's no accident. Also, God gave Flemming the ability to use what he found (penicillin) for good. So what if it was found by accident.
Since when are accidents worth nothing? Unexpected pregnancies bring "accidental" children into the world all the time. Penicillin was discovered accidentally. Hell, the list of fortuitous accidents in sports history practically goes on forever.
Arguably, if you can't do anything without Christ, then aren't you currently worthless? I mean, Christ could preach on his own, so what good are you?
Just because you are not a christian does not mean you believe the world was started by accident.
I didn't say that.
I am referring to the start of life and a purpose for being here. God doesn't make accidents, people do though. Do I agree with the pregnancy issue and penicillin (I posted about that above)

The existence of some animals should prove that 100% evolution w/o a creator is astronomical and basically impossible. An example of this is a Dolphin considering they bear their young alive and breathe air yet spend their entire life in water. In order for this to happen according evolution a land mammal would have to go into the water and change into a sea creature. For this land mamal to turn into a dolphin it's nose would have to move to the back of it's head, feet and claws would be exchanged for tails, develop a torpedo shaped body for swimming, entire metabolsim and bone stucture be changed, also a sonar system for finding food. Also it would have to develop all these techniques at once you can't have some of these features w/o the other you wouldn't survive. Also their is no fossils to connect a transitionary phase.
