When I was in college, a friend and I were listening to an acquaintance telling us about an event involving some college males and females. After the story was told, my friend made a comment that has stuck with me for all these years. " A stiff dick has no conscience." I apologize for the crudeness. But the point was so lucidly made by that crude statement. I have never heard that statement repeated in all these years.
I apply that same concept to the Universe.
I was debating atheism with someone and when they felt challenged they would often say, "But you don't know how all this came to be either." True. There is lots of evidence that makes a strong case for possible explanations but no one can prove beyond a reasonable doubt all that is needed to explain the origins of the Universe. However, I replied, "Just because mankind has no explanation for an unknown does not justify the creation of Gods and wizards, and magic and miracles to explain what mankind cannot."
There is no dumbeddown male gender wizard sitting on a throne. That is all conceived because of the limitations of mankind's knowledge. There is no Devine Universal system of morality and justice. The Universe doesn't care if the entire planet earth disappeared. The Universe doesn't care if the lion eats the Impala. The Universe doesn't care that young children starve. The Universe doesn't care if species are wiped out by disease. The Universe has no conscience.
