The neutrality of the sciences do not seem to indicate or provide a compass as to whether zero, one, or many gods should receive the credit for our origins. Yet in light of such mass variety and contradiction within the religions as a whole there may be good reason to consider that such supernatural explanations are not adequate to provide a satisfactory picture of the true source. This is precisely because they all equally do not provide a bridge from the supernatural (what is unknown) into the natural (everything that can be known thus far).
Then we also must consider the value of a supernatural understanding amidst the overwhelming amount of evidence for evolution not only explaining what happens within species but also within the cosmos! The powers of observation both in the present and leading into the past are creating a picture unlike anything that our human minds have ever fathomed before.
What religion often fails to take seriously is just how far the telescope has peered outward. How about what is equally understood on the molecular level? The science of how light works and functions is enough to bring us to strongly conclude that an expanding universe can be mapped and brought back into a singularity.
Since the speed of light itself takes billions of years and even light years to travel from one part of the universe just to be seen by our world, it really should be of no surprise that we live in a vastly old place. What is more likely? A young universe that contains billions of phantom ghost galaxies that were simply created to look old, or a supremely old universe that is simply unfolding its own story via the processes that have been in place all along? I’m both amazed and perplexed at the whole thing.
