I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
[BTW, it comes from a short book in which a scientist attempts to convince a fictional priest that science and religion can and should work together to preserve the biodiversity of our planet - ahh, if only it were that easy to define fundamental laws of science]
The attitude you have for people who appreciate science has always seemed disparaging and judgmental. I have always seen you as a creationist, and I don't understand why you are timid to represent it. I would have more respect if you did rather than playing dodge ball, strawman, and semantics.
We already think you're complaining about people ignoring the role of God in evolution. Why not just say it?
You won't get bashed by every science nerd in here for believing in God. Christian bashers are assholes.
a. The vacuum isn't "nothing" as you defined it previously.
b. Unfortunately, the mechanism to why exactly it has energy can not be simply answered with "Because of the unc. principle and it always has" - mostly because we do not fully understand this mechanism till this day.
c. The following creationist questions would be "Where it came from? (i.e the unc. principle) and "Why it acts the way it is and not in other ways?"
...and indeed, other Universes may have other unc. principles, other vacuum properties (some time ago, I read somewhere that there is even a theoretical possibility of a solid vacuum), other constants, etc.
However, in our Universe vacuum is what it is, and it isn't "nothing".
