If Science created this world, what created science?

    Surely there has to be something more, something creative. A force that created the laws of science to govern this world? Perhaps there are other worlds created with completely different laws of science?

    If we go along those lines, we have to look at the concept, if God created the universe, who created God.
    To concieve Of an omnipotent being as described as God we have to know something that is always there, always has been there, there has never been at time, or will be a time when It isn't there.
    That way brings madness.

    There is a natural order of the universe that exists throughout the galaxies. You may find different laws of science in other dimensions that lay over our own, but who can say what those would be? The religious zealots would have you believe that nothing existed until a few thousand years ago but science has proven this is a fairy tale. Only through science could we see past superstition and see things as they truly are. The worst thing to do in this day and age is try to fill in the blanks that are left with more fairy tales, they will be proven false in the end as men discover more and more as time moves forward.
    The dung beetle doesn't complain about his lot in life, he perfects his position and thus makes sure he is a needed component of the natural order of things. If men keep going the way they have they will no longer fit in the natural order of things and we will be eliminated like an out of control plague. The Universe will continue without us, we are nothing in the universal view of things.

    If you want there to be something more then there is. No one here knows and that's why we keep asking the question and getting different answers. Where does infinity end? What's past outer-space? Who created creation? I suppose the answer is something that no one will ever be able to answer until they die...or not depending on your beliefs. Let it be whatever you want it to be.

    Forces have no understanding.  The inverse of science is intellect.  Science and understanding flow toward each other in both directions.  Anything that functions comes about by applied knowledge.  These things cannot build themselves out of accidental forces.  They are set up and put in motion.

    Time is tricky.  Given the time that has passed, and the time yet to come, the chances we would be having this conversation right now are well beyond statistical or astronomical possibility.  You have to look for an intellect above what we see as time, who can intersect any and all points simultaneously in order to locate "God."
