i wouldn't call it so much a "brainchild" as a "work of art" or "labor of love"

but yes i agree that the universe is intelligently designed and creatively created

But using the Word negative: suggests brainchild as part and whole of the universe, or an outside control by Cause of events within.

More involved to those ideas. How are we to know that other part of the universe out of reach of the (woo, woo, wooh) the SPEED OF LIGHT.

Why is it perceived negatively?

Here, I draw theists and atheists hierarchy charts again on their fundamental philosophical differences (you'll be the judge if I negatively misrepresented any side):

Theists: Brain (God's) ==> Universe
Atheists: Universe ==> Brain

These differences are essentially the differences between Idealism versus Materialism.

Being an atheist, I believe the universe existed before humans and their brains. There is no God nor God's brain. The universe will out last humans.

If you guys were referring to my statement "that would be a negative" I was just trying to find an alternative to saying "no" since somebody had already said that and I didn't want to sound like a parrot.
