    A very tough read...argues universe cannot be created out of nothing (big bang).

    Tough read - meaning it is not very easy reading. Better brush up on logically thinking before attempting to read it.
    Subject matter..he better get input from people who know physics before talking about physics. He can't buy into "quantum leap", while missing the fact that physics is mostly math, and the math of physics says an electron has a certain probability distribution associated with its existence in any one location in space and time. His thought that our universe cannot be self-created (creating nothing out of nothing) ignores quantum string theory that says multiple dimensions exist, and the singularity of the big bang is a math solution (like dividing by 0), where the laws of physics break down, as in a black hole. So nothing in physics says that the total cosmos (multiple dimensions and all) is not self-existent and eternal - thus not ruling out the possibility of "creation" of our universe by God. So I agree with him in principle. I just don't think he knows enough about physics to be using it in his arguments and conclusions.
