A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

I also suspect he does not fully understand the implications of the big bang. Similarly, relying on word logic (ex nihilo nihil fit) to understand complex physical concepts or reality is generally a bad idea.
I find it interesting, though, that you even tried the ethical road. Deciding whether or not something is true is not influenced by whether or not it feels good.

It fascinating, despite the simplicity of its expression, how not only how most psychological norms and dynamics held within a social context of each gender generally persist between childhood age to adulthood, but also how those same concepts manage to slightly evolve in their manifestation, while retaining the same inherent principles.

My post was more from a dissociative perspective, only really to say "Hey, I find it mildly interesting that X trait is really the adulthood equivalent of Y trait that most children would express in situation Z"
