    We can create universes too on a computer. If we could grant the beings in such games sentience, then the programmer or the "creator" of that game could also be similar to "God". In fact, such beings in that game might be convinced that there is no creator just as many people don't believe in such a thing.
    Well, as i said earlier, I trained as a scientist and a life scientist at that before I became an engineer. I have no idea what awaits me in a few decades now at best, but I suspect it will be lights out goodnight.
