I am basing everything on history, not a hunch. The people before us believed there was a higher being, The Inca had Inti their God, The Mayans had Gods, Hindus had Gods, and etc. So all of those people were wrong? Mayans, they knew much of the universe, and we did not even see a telescope at their pyramids and other places, were their calendars wrong?
I assume God made the universe because science is not going to find out the answer of how the universe started. You guys saying that There is no God because we have the Big Bang is wrong! what happened before the big bang? Ummmm we don't know but there is evidence!
Well, let me see the evidence you have of what happened before the big bang and I will stop coming and arguing with you guys.
So how do you guys know that the microwave background radiation did not come from years and years of the stars radiation outputs? Claiming Big Bang expanded from "heat" which came from nothing is sort of like a guess don't you think?
These are questions we will probably never ever know, so why dismiss everything?
I am not talking about evolution, I am talking about the fact that you guys automatically think that, because you don't know what started the universe, It was not God. That is my main point, how do you know God did not start the universe?
What if the Big Bang was true and God sought it through?
Just because science can not sense a God, does that make it automatically not there?
Your analogy is a terrible one, because a one year old is still unable to think for him/herself.
I know that and I am positive you know that, our society is more then a 1 year old, we understand everything from DNA, to weapons. We can see deep in the universe, and are able to understand how stars form.
So the comparison is much much different.
There is a factor called "entropy" in physics, indicating that the whole universe of matter is running down, and ultimately will reduce itself to uniform chaos. This follows from the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which seems about as basic and unquestionable to modern scientific minds as any truth can be. At the same time that this is happening on the physical level of existence, something quite different seems to be happening on the biological level: structure and species are becoming more complex, more sophisticated, more organized, with higher degrees of performance and consciousness.

Because now we know how to get answers without resorting to a supernatural default. We are learning what really goes on in the universe.
When there is empiric evidence of a god -- any god -- then get back to me and I'll re-think my position.

We know too little to say there is no God, really.
We barely explored space, not even the deepest trench of the ocean, we never been to earth's core, just speculated what's inside. We can't control the weather, we are at complete mercy of it, we open people up using knives and scissors and clamps as means of surgery, your dentist put WIRES on your teeth as means of adjusting your teeth alignment.
So knowing how LITTLE we know and how primitive we are, what makes you think we have the qualifications to say there is no GOD with any kind of certainty?

The key word you mentioned is "learning" means uncovering, a knowledge INcomplete. Science is as much a default as religion, it's as much a crutch, if not more convenient.
