Yes, I'll just bet
those sources prove elusive...
CS, please explain why God is the answer to the "uncaused cause" (neat turn of phrase, btw, but ultimately misleading). What created God? What
created the creator of God? How can God exist prior to the universe? *How* did God create matter?
These arguments are regressive. There is no mechanism by which God could have functioned, and it is therefore utterly and completely outwith the
realm of science. As I said above, you either believe or not - if you do, then just accept that it doesn't have
a scientific rationale and go
on with your life! If you must, like me, have a scientific explanation - or at least a framework where an explanation might one day exist - then you
must refute God absolutely.
Which leads us back to the topic: Aliens have all the martialed forces of science, logic and rationality in their favour. God is rendered impossible
by those self-same intellectual strictures.
