Just because we do not have the necessary tools to fully comprehend and understand the universe, does not mean it must have been created by a higher power. As our knowledge expands, our doubts and beliefs lessen.
The idea that 'everything is created' is illogical, given that creator of everything must be created. Sone things just are. I choose the universe over some deity as what I believe just was, given I can prove the existence of the Universe.
false assumption that there must be A creator and not many many creators creator of what? can is more suitable instead of must exist" as a separate entity from our reality or a part of it; if separate, it escapes all the logic; if a part than it implies incomplete creator creates a part of itself
"Must" implies a lack of evidence, therefore it's an unreasonable assumption. One could just as easily say "Due to lack of proof, there "must" not be a creator". Both sides are weak. The question remains open, though good reasoning skills require us to err on the side of absence until we have proof.
There is a reason for the rise of atheism with high education. We are in a giant universe that does work in accordance with human's evolutionary way of thinking. Concepts like a mover moves and a creater creates are only human perception. The universe doesn't assign functions to things.
We observe the universe as being imperfect, and that we cannot make something that can surpass the rules we impose on it. Therefore the universe needed to be created by entity which isn't confined in rules in which we are confined.
There must be some kind of first principle underlying reality. Were there to be no first principle, then there would be a nonsensical and never ending chain of causes into eternity. The only way to remedy this is to posit a first cause.
