Sorry, but that seems like a cop-out. By admission you leaving the "laws of physics" and venturing into the non-scientific realm of your own faith. Science does not observe complex universes springing from nothing creating personal, rational, and complex, self-aware, moral free-agent beings does it?


It's not a cop-out to say "we don't know". We don't. That is what faith is for like you say. Maybe you think the search for a scientific cause for the Big Bang is the search for scientific proof of 'God', it doesn't really matter. Cop-out or not, this is where we are in terms of our understanding of the Universe in 2008. It's an exciting time to be alive. I don't like it when people try and push me back a few thousand years to the realms of superstition and religious dogma, when scientific proof is staring everyone in the face.

However, self-evident laws of logic tells us you can't give what you don't have, plus Maria and Captain Von Trapp sings, "nothing comes from nothing, nothing ever could" in "The Sound of Music" -- that's good science, baby.


You're basing your argument on what is sung in some cheesy film musical? OMG | :OMG:

No, but the brain, fingers, and skills He gave you can.


It just so happens I got another job, so the wolf is kept from the door for another day. I got it because I'm good at what I do. The reason I'm good at what I do is because I work & study very hard to get that way. 'God' has nothing to do with it. If I was a really bad developer, you may have a point. But even then it could just be down to random chance & luck.

But as Einstein said, God does not play with dice.
