Okay, That's Your Definition. I Used Webster's Dictionary

Dear Sir,
My reply at first might seem silly, but please be patient.
It would seem presumptuous of me to either confirm or deny someone else's ability to create something out of nothing. Just because they don't do it "on demand" would not prove much either. For I do not see Anyone "recently" creating something out of nothing.
There has been a debate in astronomy between
scientists about whether anything new has been created since the universe began, perhaps 10-15 million years ago.

Your definition is certainly a strict one which is a relevant consideration. I did not use that one. If I did, I could not admit any possible Gods into the arena of science, for we have not observed Anyone creating something out of nothing.

As far as "Christians" are concerned, or "Muslims", I do not want to over-generalize them. It does not seem necessary to say every Chrisian's theology is correct. In fact, in bitter moments, I have heard it said,"Jesus was the first and only Christian." Some of us in "the free world" have a casual attitude about God because we feel it would be a mystery if God were not present. The questions of what are the nature, thoughts or personality of God are open to exploration and free inquiry.
Thank you.
Michael "Mike"
