This paper explains that, according to astrophysicists, society may never have a way of accessing any information about anything that occurred prior to the first milliseconds after the Big Bang; therefore, the truth of whether or not any God or Creator is responsible for the existence of the universe and life may never be known for lack of necessary data. However, the author continues, many 20th century philosophers believe that the harmony of nature proves the existence of a creator. Nonetheless, presently, the paper underscores, there is simply no logically sound argument to suggest that the existence of any God or Creator is even one iota more likely than not to be true.
