I only said that randomness cannot justify atheism, that's all. It does not follow that randomness justifies theism, my position is that randomness is just another word for "we don't know" or "we cannot know".

Interestingly, the whole idea of God is based on the fact that we don't know how the universe works. The funny thing I see these days is those science types (eg, Alex) who come and say we don't need the idea of God anymore since we know everything. I don't take those people seriously but they themselves do, and it's really hard to show them that they are not always smarter than the people who disagree with them.
