    One could just as easily counter the question with 'Who created/is responsible for God?'.

    Your arrogance suggests that you've made this merely to have a reaction and not to stimulate conversation.

    Distasteful.

    Religious people: Please just tell me why you find it perfectly acceptable to call your God infinite/eternal (whatever floats your boat) but when that claim is made about the universe itself (which could easily just be a 'cycle') suddenly you have a problem.

    This is exactly why I'm agnostic. If you ask an atheist this question, they can't answer it. On the other hand, ask a religious person how god came about, they can't really answer you either.

    Religious people: Please tell why an infinitely complex entity which has created the entire universe focuses so much on one species that it creates an elaborate set of believes/practices for us to follow and demands our constant worship/admiration, that if we carry out during a during our adult life of around 40-60 years we are rewarded with eternity in a fanciful place of perfection and if we fail we're damned to an eternity in a negative afterlife potentially suffering physical/emotional trauma.

    Nah don't worry about it really. I don't.

    So it's not alright to have an incredibly low chance of something but it is alright to have something apparently infinite?

    Because if you can believe in the concept of an infinite then no matter how small the chance is you have to acknowledge that at some point it will occur. For all we know the universe could have existed for an unimaginably long time before the big bang happened.

    Or to put it another way, if you flip a coin what are the chances that it lands perfectly on it's side, standing up? So no heads and no tails. You probably think that is super unlikely and you'd be right. Do you think it could never happen though?

    It really doesn't matter which religion you pick. Basing your ideas on an incredibly small chance makes much more sense than basing it on a book which may be nothing more than fiction. I could quite easily write a book now, pass it off as a religious text and have people worshiping me in a few hundred years. Doesn't mean what I say is either right or proves any sort of god.

    Poor troll is poor, but nice try.

    No we dont.The big bang is merely a description of what happened.We know that the universe is expanding so at some point in the past it must have been a lot smaller.It says nothing about how the universe came about.That is unknown.Religion on the other hand postulates a supernatural being that magically wished the universe into existence.
