← Science can't explain the big bang - there is still scope for a creator

"Although science can state a great deal about what followed after the big bang, it cannot in fact explain how "something" (the energy of the universe compressed into a volume the size of a golf ball) arose from nothing beforehand. "

What if the universe is cyclical, and infinite?

Think that's a cop out? But an infinite God isn't? What a blatant apologist.

"But as long as science cannot explain how our universe evolved from nothing, scientists should not be so quick to dismiss the "soft form" of creationism."

Yes. Yes they should. In the same way they should dismiss any far-fetched hypothesis that is presented without a *shred* of evidence (apart from the odd photo of a fishing lure) to support it.
