More wild claims with zero evidence

From the top church officials at the Vatican, to the obscure fundamentalist believers, god-botherers continue to make up stories about how their imaginary friend created everything while offering no evidence what-so-ever to support their wild claims — except to offer their ancient mythology book written by ignorant humans centuries upon centuries ago (and of which provides zero scientific or any supporting evidence for the many claims made by all these denominations of Christianity that their god zapped us all into being).
We have this story recently from Reuters:
God was behind Big Bang, universe no accident: Pope

God’s mind was behind complex scientific theories such as the Big Bang, and Christians should reject the idea that the universe came into being by accident, Pope Benedict said on Thursday. “The universe is not the result of chance, as some would want to make us believe,” Benedict said on the day Christians mark the Epiphany, the day the Bible says the three kings reached the site where Jesus was born by following a star.
What does Pope Benny provide as supporting evidence for his claims?

(Cricket sounds)

The story continues:
Some atheists say science can prove that God does not exist, but Benedict said that some scientific theories were “mind limiting” because “they only arrive at a certain point … and do not manage to explain the ultimate sense of reality …”
He said scientific theories on the origin and development of the universe and humans, while not in conflict with faith, left many questions unanswered.
So, when Christians or other god believers have unanswered questions, what do they do? Yep, they make shit up and no matter what denomination, they all sound alike. Their reasoning is exactly the same.
“In the beauty of the world, in its mystery, in its greatness and in its rationality … we can only let ourselves be guided toward God, creator of heaven and earth,” he said.
In other words, they believe what they want to believe…without evidence, and the church leaders tell their flocks of sheeple that it is close-minded to question what the church leaders say is true. They say it and the masses are to believe it . . . unquestioningly.

Just a simple case of extremely clever and manipulative old men making statements to perpetuate their lifestyle.

It ain't a bad gig, and they've made it last a long time through good salemanship.

I think the main hook was St Paul's promise of "everlasting life after death" for all who followed 'his' lord. Very clever stuff, offering a product everyone thinks they want, but leaving absolutely no way to assess the veracity of said statement.

And when you tell them you don't believe it, they resort to the "Well, you'll find out after you die, and by then it will be too late!"
