Well I would like to keep this down to earth (at least until some logical ground rules are laid down) because when we get into the realm of philosophy anything is possible or refuted. (At least on pages of philosophical books)
First evolution asks from us to believe into something that is outside our day-to-day normal logic in the same way a belief in god does. In this case it demands from us to accept possibility that design does not require a designer. Correct?
Of course we can accept possibility that, say, sea water, wind and erosion can create a natural bridge between two cliffs. These are blind forces we are talking about. The question is can the same or similar process create, let say, a chair (maybe), how about a boat, or lets go just a step further, how about a yacht or a house and I mean I a real sense, can you still imagine natural forces doing that? How about a computer? Now try imagining something even more complex, say, first life form complete with “primitive” reproduction.
I think that many people have a problem with one basic word – god, which gives them hairy feeling of dumbness associated with religion (especially when fleeing something like WTBS). However, world around us is much more complex than either evolution or theology can express it.
In the last few years a new branch of physics understanding has been created termed a “theory of everything” or M-theory (try to google it). There is an increasing recognition in scientific circles that space-time in which we live is in fact far more than what eyes can see in our three-dimensional universe. In fact, there is a strong mathematical indication that there are at least 11 dimensions.
M-theory allows for the fact that universes can coexist without interfering with each other. In fact countless number of them could coexist in so called multiverse. There is even talk in some circles of attempting to create entirely new universe in a lab that would exist in its own space and time. (Scratching your head, are you?
Now lest try going a step further and imagine that certain beings can, in effect, traverse even from one dimension into another. What would they appear as to being that are, for example, living in confines of, say, only a three-dimensional universe? Probably, something like angels or alike (explanation would vary depending on local worldview, culture and collective consciousness)
Great number of scientists are now realizing that we are only stretching the surface as far as understanding the universe and beyond is concerned. A number of new theories have sprung up. One of them being an Electric Universe which would in a sense diminish a need for big bang or moment of creation as such (this is something that goes even beyond M-theory if you are interested here is a good site http://www.holoscience.com)
We see everything from our three-dimensional world and are hence judging it accordingly. Of course if we want to be objective we have to admit that all our reasoning applies only to our own universe (and it might not even be correct) How do we judge something like 11 dimensional global multiverse which we have never experienced and existence of which we can only infer mathematically? And if there are intelligent beings that can transcend different dimensions or even if they can create universe in some sort of a lab, what would they be to us if not gods?
