OK, there's absolutely no reasoning in what you just said. Physics is not "created by man." That's about the most ridiculous statement I've heard yet. You deserve the Darwin award this year. Physics are PROVEN LAWS. We didn't just magically think up the laws of physics. They are the purest form of science, completely absent of theory, and completely comprised of absolute fact and proveability.
Due to this display of complete ignorance of science, I'm not sure I can ever respond to your posts again in good conscience, because you're obviously just grasping at straws to reason out a way that there is no God.
As I said before, it is not illogical at all to deduce that there MUST be an eternal source that created all things. We KNOW it's logical, because most philosophers that attempt this line of reasoning come up with the fact that there must be an eternal source. It is the only explanation for existence in any form.
The reason people believe in a Creator, besides the fact that they had to come from somewhere, is because it is logical, and it shows a purpose to life. There IS purpose. If something is created, it is created for a purpose. If one takes away creation (a beginning of things), they remove purpose as well. Then, life begins to have no meaning and you just do what it takes to tolerate it. Belief in God is not a necessity. It is a logical deduction.
Many years ago, when people found tribes in Africa completely untouched by civilization, they did research studies on the children around the age of 7. They asked them, "Do you believe in a higher power of some sort?" Now remember, these cultures in particular they were finding don't teach a God or anything like that. But 100% of the children said, "Yes, they know there's a higher power, but they cannot explain it and know nothing of it." The Bible says that all men will look at creation (nature) and will be without excuse, because creation declares a creator. These kids understood this at age 7 with no influence from anyone telling them there's a God. You've managed to completely ignore this truth. 95% of the world believes in a God of some sort. You're in the 5% minority or illogical deduction or flat out rebellion. Good job there, Einstein.
