Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I can also experience nature and other people without any special theory.

We were discussing the ORIGINS of our existence. Evolution and the other theories cited may explain a lot but not WHY this huge surprise happened or WHO (if) made it happen. In this context, an explanation of love, is as needed as one that explains how what IS, materialised in the beginning.

We were discussing the ORIGINS of our existence.

No, we were discussing your evidence (or not) for the existence of a spirit realm.

Then you cited a string of exceedingly well-understood natural phenomena, for which stringing "goddidit" on the end of a perfectly adequate scientific model is unparsimonious as well as demeaning to God.

Then you cited a poorly understood natural phenomenon, for which stringing "goddidit" on the end of "we really don't know yet" is both unparsimonious and an excellent way of creating a way for future discoveries to disprove your claims about God.
