We should keep in mind that we have a vast amount of experience of things,
with relative degrees of order, coming into existence, and no one has ever yet
experienced anything, or has plausible empirical evidence of anything, coming
into existence from nothing or from “something” with no order — which really
means no nature, no character — at all. In this sense the emergence of something
from nothing or from chaos has a probability of exactly zero relative to our data.
Now it is true that probability, like “logic,” can be interpreted in numerous ways. But it would be
refreshing to hear the naturalistic cosmologist admit that all of our empirical evidence is against
order emerging from disorder and something emerging from nothing, and to confess that his
metaphysical necessity of such emergences rest on the assumption of a naturalistic world view,
rather than proving such a view.
