So very funny that you use that science to deny that science, the irony is really quit stunning.

You are just asserting. The universe can never be an exception.

Depends on your definition of the word accident.

There are at least 27 mathematically sound theories of how the universe came into existence to science not a single one required accident and not a single one of them requires a god.

Since when has an “obvious question” been ranting, Oh I get it, ever since you cannot answer it without fooking up your faith.

And to continue, the number 42 was first postulated as the answer to life the universe and everything in a novel written in the 70s, there has been a wealth of scientific, mathematical and technological confirmation of this number in various aspects of the disciplines

It will never be solved as long as people think of God as being instead of as a energy.
Can a being function without the energy/ drive/ force/ spirit?

No it isn’t that’s just an excuse for deliberate ignorance
As long as you are unwilling to educate yourself including the non living things.
You are just asserting, exception to what?

Tried telling them that Christians identify with the Eastern concept of God (AL/EL) which means power, source, mighty etc.
We do not concern ourselves with the Egyptian, Greek, Roman etc concepts which describe God as a "supernatural being".
Youre a girl, maybe they will listen to you.
But we are made in the image and likeness of God. What about that?

God is both supernatural and spiritual.

How do you see the number 42 as the answer? The Bible seems to indicate that the number 7 or 70 is the answer to that question.

I believe in God and science but if you don't believe in science then you are blind.
What?
Science with out the believe of God is lame and blind. Ok?
The brain that makes you think creatively was never made by science but by God.

why do you believe in god? what is your reasoning for that other than growing up being told that?
Stop wondering.
Science without any arguments has done alot for mankind. But the channels or mechanisms or roots that holds science to its very root, is the brain.
So, did science did that?

Eventually as kids we catch our parents or someone playing Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy. I have never caught anyone playing/trying to be God.
As I said look around you at all this world is. I find that hard to believe that it all happened by chance.
Well said. You are blessed. But one thing, God first, before Science.

You are the ignorant. Like the German idiot who was trying to cover up for his country, forgetting history. I asked him a simple question, to date, he is still running away from that question.
Education is good, but it is only limited to secular matters.

I did provide a exact reference. You seem to have found it alright. All thought that is buffered and sugar coated. Before they found the discrepancy they stated for a fact that they knew exactly how old the universe was. Carbon dating was used as an exact science and was used to date everything. It was big news when the universe was found to be much older then they had previously stated. I'm a sciance buff myself and remember it clearly.
This argument will never be solved. The farther we get away from the beginning the harder it will be to prove either side. The bible has been misinterpreted, abused and parts are missing. Sciance is open to the same problems. I believe the truth is somewhere in the middle.
Carbon dating may not be exact, in fact our planet may not be exactly 4.5 billion years old, I will give you that. But somewhere in the middle? The middle of what, the claim by creationists that Earth is around 6000 years old? Yeah, I don't think so. No matter how inaccurate carbon dating may be, the common sense of a six-year-old is sufficient to prove that the world is a wee-bit older than 6000 years.
