looks like you've committed another classic religious logic fallacy.
just because theories about the origins of the universe cannot be proven right now doesn't make them "drivel."
theories about the origins of the universe are not simply pulled out of your ass.
theories about the origins of the universe arise from projection models based on the mathematical foundations of particle physics and Thermo-dynamics.
theories about the origin of the universe result from a very long chain of ideas; ideas on top of ideas on top of ideas.
the ideas that work (testable, verifiable, repeatable) are built upon and added to the foundation; integrated with other preexisting working models.
the ideas that don't work are discarded/replaced or updated as necessary.
they are far from drivel.
they represent the collective knowledge of the best minds working on the cutting edge of technological understanding. it is the work and labor and blood and sweat of countless experts in their field, virtually all working without agenda towards the singular pursuit of truth.
...so what's on the other side of the coin?
on the other side of the coin is religion. and religion is pretty much the opposite of everything I've just described. it is a loose collection of disputed and unverifiable stories - all of which are incompatible with each other - that were written by men who were not experts in ANYTHING. they were written during a time when most people still thought that the Earth was the center of the universe. they are full of inconsistencies and their preachings are SO UTTERLY base and immature that it is PAINFULLY obvious how every single one of them is man-made.
religion continually cedes ground to science because religion does not progress. it is not interested in truth. religion is pulled out your ass.
it is interested in it's ancient stories which never change and cannot be questioned. they only modify the stories and water them down as society progresses around them (evolution, gay marriage, etc).
...so you wanna' talk about drivel?
sh*t. religion is the king
