A few words on this Forum's purpose:
This forum is provided to discuss the What of the Universe - either for veterans to explain hard-to-understand concepts to beginners, or to share the thoughts we have as scientists and science enthusiasts about the Universe around us.
The Why of the Universe is not the subject of this forum. Religion is one of the topics which, like politics, has a potential to make a thread veer from thought-provoking discussion to flame war. Observation of the universe is not a proof of the existence of a deity, nor a proof of its non-existence. So please do not push your own beliefs in the conversation here. Not only is it against the Cloudy Nights Terms of Service you have all agreed to, it is pointless.
This applies to both astronomical matters (such as the origins of the Cosmos and of our solar system) as well as to Earth sciences (such as the origins and evolution of life on Earth), which are bound to be discussed here on occasion.
