    Consider the two fundamental laws of thermodynamics: 1. Matter can neither be created nor destroyed, only changed to a different form - that is, all the matter and energy in the universe is a constant. 2. The law of entropy which states that all systems naturally tend towards a state of disorder. In other words, systems require a constant inflow of energy in order for the system to continue to exist. There isn't a single scientist in the world today that will refute these two fundamental priciples upon which all science is based. It's obvious that someone had to put all of this matter and energy here in the first place, and that someone is continuing to invest energy to keep it all from falling apart. Any scientist that doesn't believe these things is adhering to an illogical and inherently flawed belief system, that contradicts the basic underpinnings of science itself. A scientist that doesn't believe these things should find a different profession.
