A comment only from reading snippets of the book but specifically the notion of not needing a creator. I fall into the group who believe or hope if nothing else that a creator in some way may have something in store for us. Be that as it may, the opposite tact is seemingly as dogmatic by at least as much as the religious purport to belief in God in that your pushing the create from nothing where this becomes your God even without wanting to acknowledge it as such. For your opinion omits many aspects and possibilities that would easily put your theory out to pasture.
