If it is so hard to believe that the universe and all it's contents came from nowhere and evolved, why isn't it even more difficult to believe that there's something that could have created it?
If a god created everything - what created the god?
Some people say we could not have come from nothing, yet forget that the god must have come from somewhere.
Where did "god" come from? Is he/she the offspring of other gods? And where did they come from?
How did this god come of such power and intelligence?
Those who say some things in the universe are too complex to have come from nothing seem to accept the idea that the creator came from nothing.
A very chicken vs egg scenario in a way.
I'm not saying I'm right, but I am saying your argument isn't a particularly good one.
One of you will end up here next!
If one decides to follow the fallacious path that leads to "the uncaused cause (the Prime Mover)," one again runs into the irreconcilable propositions that everything needs a cause, but for the one thing specifically excepted by fiat. If an uncaused cause is possible (when speaking about a god), then it's possible (when speaking about the universe).
