From the Big Bang, not sure what was before. God does not exist and was not involved.
Not the Big Bang, but some other physical event. God does not exist and was not involved.
God created the Universe without a Big Bang. Earth was especially created.
God created the Universe with a Big Bang and then the universe evolved.
Some other mechanism created the Universe, without God...
God created the Universe in some other fashion...

And of course...the equally vexxing question for those that support the God only "in the beginning" idea is OK...so where did God come from?
I totally understand agnostics.
The FSM could imply a non sentient non organic power that clapped its noodley appendages together creating a big bang, and you are just merely equating this to being "God" when it could be that the noodley appendages were just 2 P-branes colliding, and was not a conscious act of creation, and was instead an accidental.. happenstance occurrence in the multiverse.
I actually think if we would all (and by 'we' I mean the generic 'we'...not people on this board) put aside the NEED to be right and just allowed for discussion on the subject there is some FASCINATING things that could be learned. I understand the hesitancy of the pro-bang theory group to allow Intelligent Design to be taught in school...but man...can you think of a more cool class than one that taught the science and physics and offered students the opportunity to design a galxy...plug the info into computer models and see which students models didnt get all tore up. (sort of like the scaled bridge exercises).
If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!
