I guess there is some difficulty with the word ‘creation’. The word will forever be associated with the biblical Creationist Myths and the associated supernatural claims that a human like God figure did it all.
The problem arises when you want to describe how anything came into existence. A paper clip is a piece of wire bent into a specific shape. It did not come about as the result of a number of random events – it is the result of a number of non-random events – it is a creation. Something created the paper clip. We could work out the likelihood of a paper clip popping into existence by accident and the probability would be astronomical.
Theoretical Physicist from Cambridge University, Neil Turok calculated the probability of the Universe popping into existence by accident and he found the probability was 10120. That is 10 followed by 120 zeros. (refer BBC documentary Testing God – Episode 1, Killing the Creator.) And even if you can explain how all the settings were exactly correct you then have to explain the existence of all the matter and heat – basically it cannot be random – you cannot get anything from nothing – certainly not a universe with life and consciousness.

Yes I agree – but the default position should be that the universe came into existence as the result of a non-random event. To claim otherwise is invoking a supernatural cause.
