Whenever I contemplate a God that creates a universe, I always end up with the same conclusion. If a God lives forever would the creation of the universe intentionally be designed to include lots of randomness and chaos? If not, them time would play out like a linear program and God would always know what happens next. How incredibly boring if you are fated to live forever. A smart God would design a universe full of surprises and delight in the things it makes manifest. No other purpose seems logical for a God who lives forever.

There's no such thing as "random" though - as every physicist knows. As far as we know, every effect has a cause, and that cause has a prior cause and so on. We just tend to characterise those effects, the causes of which are too complex or to opaque for us to understand as "random".

Latest comment: Interesting theory. Of course there is no more supporting evidence for it that I can provide for mine. When we can't actually prove something we theorize which is very useful but only provides a nice placeholder until something closer to the truth comes along.
