    Critical theory is the Cultural Marxist practice to criticize what one does not believe to arrive at what one does believe without ever having to examine what one believes. Practitioners of critical theory confuse critical theory for critical thinking. Critical thinking is the practice of challenging what one does believe to test its validity.

    My question is... is it ethical to only criticize what one doesn't believe to arrive at what one does believe without ever examining what one believes?

    Neither. They are both questions. Although the last one proves my point that you are only capable of critical theory arguments.

    But if you want to know how we got here it is because the laws of nature which existed before space and time predestined beings that know and create would eventually arise given enough time and the right conditions.

    No. It's called inflation theory. You should read up on it. It explain show space and time were created from nothing without violating the law of conservation and began to expand and cool until such time that beings that know and create were ultimately produced according to the laws of nature which existed before space and time.

    Do you even have any science background at all?

    You claim knowledge of what there was before space and time. That's a magical assumption based on nothing.

    So how else do you think the universe was created if not by following rules? Specifically the laws of quantum mechanics and the laws of conservation.

    You really only have two options and it appears that you have chosen magic while I have chosen the laws of nature.

    You chose that a magical creator invented the laws. You have never even approached anything that can count as evidence for that.
