"Where do you think God came from?"

He came from the overarching need of most of us to feel like we have an answer to life's ultimate questions, of course.

God made the volcano mad - till science came up with more useful explanations based upon experience and observation.

Then God created the earth in seven days - till science came up with more useful explanations based upon experience and observation.

Now God started the Big Bang - unless and until science comes up with more useful explanations based upon experience and observation.

Even though we have covered this line of reasoning about 10,000 times, maybe Madmikey, unlike the previous 9,999 adherents, will:

1) explain the substantive difference between the statements, "God caused the Big Bang" and "I don't know what caused the Big Bang", and

2) tell us whether it is even theoretically possible to conceive of an empirical test to ascertain a difference between the two statements, and

3) if it's not theoretically possible to conceive of an empirical test to tell us the difference between the two statemnts, explain how there still remains a meaningful difference between the two statements?
