Along these lines I found a way to resolve the theist and the atheist
viewpoints: It is simply to assert that god is so big and powerful
(omniscient and omnipotent) that he is the creator of a world capable of
creating itself. Hence his role in creation is nil even though he is the
creator. This approach allows the scientific process to continue as if
there were no god. Evolution is OK. The big bang is OK. It also
satisfies the theists because it raises god to such unimaginable level
of power that he is able create this way: by doing nothing. This god is
surely bigger than any "hands-on-creation" god that classical religions
have come up with. ;-)
