Exactly my point. Thank you. However M-Theory does have one thing that God does not have, mathematics backing it up.
The big bang theory has tons of evidence to back it up. It's just that in science the bar is VERY high for anything to be considered fact. If the rigorous rules of science are applied to the existence of God, it would hardly if even make it to 'Theory' because of the lack of any objective evidence. All evidence for God is subjective, meaning that you might see one thing as evidence for God, I might see that same thing differently. Objectively we know from numerous careful and precise measurements that the universe is expanding, this is a known fact- there is no better explanation that has been put forth to explain the observations besides expansion, if you can think of one, then you could re-write cosmology and go down in history for your great achievement. Logically then if you rewind time everything likely expanded from a common point. This is not the only evidence for the big bang. Mathematical evidence exists for it as well.
Notice the terms science uses and remember the difference between science speak and religious speak Science will use terms such as "likely" "probably" "perhaps" "maybe" "all evidence suggests". Religion will not use these terms, they will not say that God likely told Abraham to kill his only son, no they will say God DID tell Abraham to kill his son. They state it as being true and do not leave it open for questioning. Science does not have this luxury. I will not say that M-Theory IS true, I will say that it is possible that M-theory is true. You say God DID it, you do not say that God most likely did it. Who here is closing off their mind and disregarding anything that does not jive with their own belief?
