    Not looking for an air tight proof, none exists. We argue to Okams razor.

    But, in what I have seen for example in Christianity Today and here on the chat
    line, I don't have the slightest idea how to test you viewpoints by physical means.

    What do I look for with my neat new 8 meter space based telescope that would support
    your views?

    You "fully gifted formation economy" is not very scientific, How are your ideas
    expressed when put into scientific terms such as "embedded into the initial
    conditions at time equal zero"
    etc etc.
