When all is said and done, there are only 2 choices:
1) God created everything
2) Everything magically appeared
That is a bizarre statement.
From a scientific point of view, the two are the same.
>>From a scientific point of view, the two are the same.
That is true, if you believe in magic. I don’t believe in magic, nor do I believe in fairy tales, such as frogs turning into princes, like this fellow:
“Our tendency to develop hiccups is another influence of our past. There are two issues to think about. The first is what causes the spasm of nerves that initiates the hiccup. The second is what controls that distinctive hic, the abrupt inhalation-glottis closure. The nerve spasm is a product of our fish history, while the hic is an outcome of the history we share with animals such as tadpoles It turns out that the pattern generator responsible for hiccups is virtually identical to one in amphibians. And not in just any amphibiansin tadpoles, which use both lungs and gills to breathe. Tadpoles use this pattern generator when they breathe with gills The parallels between our hiccups and gill breathing in tad poles are so extensive that many have proposed that the two phenomena are one and the same.” [Shubin, Neil, “Your Inner Fish.” Pantheon Books, 2008, Chap.11, p.190, 192]
