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

Wow... so because we can't suppose what preceded the Big Bang we should include the possibility that everything was created in science classes...
Presumably the process of creation destroyed the creator' because there's certainly no evidence for his/her/its continued existence. The entire premise is absurd, and admittedly outside the realm of science. Since by definition we can't possibly know what is outside our universe, any attempt at an answer is pure conjecture.

EDIT: I noted upon re-reading that my statement sounds rather similar to NOMA in concept. I am ONLY suggesting that this is outside science because it is also outside the realm of observability.
