I respond out of politeness because Philip has already made many more points 
than I would have, and I suspect, more succinctly.

Dear Paul,
Anyone who believes that something came out of nothing without an un-caused 
first cause, and that lifeless chemicals can randomly order themselves into the 
highly complex organisms without any intelligent or energetic input must be the 
height of irrationality. Everything about life screams of an intelligent 
origin. The only argument that can be put against it isn't and argument but a 
belief. I believe a creator makes far more sense than without one. Nobody in 
their right senses would believe that a computer could evolve itself. Just 
because people cannot understand or explain the creator does not make its 
existence unlikely or invalid. If it makes you feel better don't call it God 
call it - a creative intelligence or something like that, but please don't 
insult our intelligence, by saying that it all happened randomly and 
undirected. It just isn't possible. No scientist, with all of modern technology 
at their disposal, has ever been able to duplicate
 life in the way that they would like to.
You ought to read up on Dawkins 'Methinks it is like a weasle' and his 
'biomorphs' arguments for achieving order out of randomness. Its so pathetic as 
to be embarrassing because he couldn't see the obvious flaw in his logic.

Once again you delight me. Very nicely reasoned. I am especially sympathetic

I look forward to his response but don't hold your breath. He know s he will 
get creamed! He has no time for people who say 'God did it' but has plenty of 
time for those who say 'first there was nothing then it exploded and then 
against all the odds out came life miraculously' Jack.. 
But Jack from outside the discussion, and allowing for no bias either way, I 
can see that both points of view, are equally frustrating. But the rationalist 
has the greater case. To a person who sees GOD as nothing, and we cannot 
substantiate Him as being anything but "spirit", which to a physicist is 
"nothing", then his, the rationalists, view of the universe as being 
unexplainable by anything other than some strange and complex mechanism has to 
be more realistic and more rational than it being designed and made out of 
nothing by a fairy, even a super duper omnipotent fairy. 
Philosophcally, having no bias, I can see, "God created it." and "'first there 
was nothing then it exploded and then against all the odds out came life " 
as equal value statements... But as a physicist, I see it as imcompatible 
However, without having ever read Dawkins, I can bet you are oversimplifying 
the evolutionist position as regards the big bang. The universe did not come 
out of nothing. It was/is/will be always there in some form, which in physics 
could be some form of energy cycling process. This is a quite rational view. At 
least it has to a rationalist , more substance than our resorting to a 
spiritual Supreme being, based upon no evidence whatsoever, and on faith alone 
to explain existence. If you kept throwing God at me in support of creation as 
opposed to the rationalist explanation I proposed for existence, I would be 
justly excused for being annoyed. You would be and are being un-scientific.
Your correct approach would be to offe a separate discussion on "Is there a 
Supreme Intelligence called God." To which Dawkins or any other rationalist has 
the right to decline, or if he has the grace to seek, accept. 
We cannot rationally mix the two subjects together..
