I would like to respond correctly to a post in AoM on probability. It was said that the universe ‘must have had’ a creator. I said that, since the universe exists. The probability is 1; not 1:large-number-of-choice.
The response was that, after it happened, the probability was 1, but the probability of it happening by way of a random event before the universe was created was zero.

Both Drayeye and Robert Jameson responded without a simple explanation as requested by me. I would like to know what is the correct answer and wording and a simple outline of why. Could anyone here on Science help here, please?
