As a process, trial and error delivers results quicker and more reliably than ‘random’ evolution. Through trial and error, life on earth ould have ‘evolved’ not in billions of years but in a few thousand. However, trial and error pre-supposes the existence of a thinking mind with an intelligence and a memory. I argue that a thinking mind can come from nothing just as likely as scientists say material reality can come from nothing. But: a thinking mind from nothing can think up a mental universe far quicker and with a greater success rate than a material universe and its restrictive (self-destructive) laws and constants ever could.
