I look around me at nature, etc. and I would say there is plenty of evidence of a devine creator. I think it's foolish to believe all this happens by accident. And my position is no more or less valid than yours.
The absence of ANY evidence of a god is reason enough to NOT believe.
It's a double or triple negative, but it has internal consistency.
Nature isn't evidence of a DIVINE (if you don't know a ******* word, don't try to use it) creator. It simply is. To postulate a divine creator based on faith or belief is fine, but don't pass it off as evidence.
And don't try to characterize your position as "valid". It's FAITH (as MIke says) and is not based on evidence. You can't have it both ways.
The reason nature is evidence is the intricacies of the cells, atoms, quarks, EVERYTHING in nature.
Order does not come from chaos.
Clean out your garage entirely. Not a speck of dust. Leave it for a week, a month, a year. 200 billion years. Then go back and check. Has a Mercedes formed?
