    That's nice.

    When the answer is in the Magic Sky Pixie Arena, the answer becomes "who", not "what".

    A. Bob did it.

    The answer doesn't even attempt to address the question; irrelevant information.
    See?

    You've got the picture.

    Saying "brane theory" doesn't answer the question, either.

    Guess what? There is NO answer.

    I don't see what your problem is. Perhaps your emotions are preventing you from understanding my answer, since your response is merely repeating what I said with Jerry Vehemence?

    Did you have help figuring that one out?

    I am on topic. Being on topic does require one to understand the topic, which I do in full. You emotional response indicates you're using some other organ to drive your key booad at this time.

    Challenging mythological superstitions will to that to some people.

    I'm curious as to why you think the origin of the universe is intelligent.

    Are you aware of the fatal flaws of the watchmaker argument?

    If you believe that the origin of the universe isn't necessarilly intelligent then you should probably describe it with some other label than God. God implies some sort of intelligence or conscious entity. It would be like describing natural causes like the flowing of water as divine. Perhaps you are a pantheist.
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Perhaps its the christian god, perhaps its the hindu gods, perhaps its a ham sandwich. We just don't know.

    My answer is "I don't know". That is the best answer until more evidence or some other means of confirming a proposed theory is in (this includes the theory that god created the universe).

    "I don't know" is a valid answer. One doesn't have to reject the possibility of God or accept that God created the universe. One can simply not know. I believe that is the ONLY valid position to take barring personal claims of supernatural revelation or guidance, a conundrum all its own
    .

    ^ yeah that.

    I was half awake on my earlier posts in this thread, and intended to clarify my position a bit more after I had some sleep and the synapses were firing properly, no need to after reading this post.

    With all due respect, there is no evidence that God created the universe. If one can believe that an all powerful God created everything, then we must accept the fact that it is just as likely that the universe was created by a flying spaghetti monster, who, out of thin air, and with his noodly appendage, made everything appear and come to life.
