There is an intereseting point in all of this. I can appreciate lively debate on the subject of God and of the creation of the universe But there exists something if your reference to an objective reality that is more than a nuance. Does it really make any sense to search for answers to these questions or is there more in the act of searching than ever hoping to find the answers. One thought is that our minds function along the same lines as our language and that thought is closely related to language. If this is correct - there are questions that do not make sense - like asking who created that which created everything. The fact that you exist by experioencing existence suggests that you cannot obtain any understanding of an objective realty. The term does not truely make sense and that is not a nuance. I do however cherish the act of searching for answers - for the sake of searching. If everything is subjective then perhaps science is the study of our experience and does not tell us anything of an objective reality. On the flip side of this - maybe it tells us more about ourselves as humans. Just some thoughts - sorry if they seem a little randum - just engaging in the search.
