Is a magic god, magicking everything up a good explanation for the origin of matter?

Or is QCD phase transition from a quark-gluon state a better explanation since it actually explains it and doesn't sound like a bricklayer talking about things way beyond their comprehension?

No offence to brickies.

Update:

Magic

/ˈmajik/

Noun

The power of apparently influencing the course of events by using mysterious or supernatural forces.

No Strawmen here, sorry!

    Your question has nothing to do with God, so I'll just leave him out of this. So, magic or QCD phase transition? Well, since 'magic' means that stuff we don't understand caused something to happen, obviously magic is the most correct answer. It also isn't an answer at all--which is why it is good that people are exploring other ideas for the origin of matter. Your link wasn't very conclusive, but looks like a thought in the right direction.

    By the way, do you think that thoughts are real? I find that people looking at a tiny corner of 'magic' often forget how much of it is out there. A lot of people think that explaining a miracle makes it less miraculous, while I'd strongly disagree. My studies have been more focused on biology than physics, and the more I see how things happen, the more miraculous they seem. Getting rid of the magic doesn't get rid of the miracle--it just tells you how it was done, like one of those TV shows exposing an illusionist's secrets. It doesn't make the illusion less entertaining--you already knew it was an illusion before you saw it--explaining how or remaining baffled doesn't make it 'fake' or 'real'.

    Actually there is no really good explaining for the origins of matter or energy, unless you are willing to accept at some point, something came from nothing. So like most other things in my life, I declare my self agnostic.

    That depends upon whether you already believe in God for other reasons, doesn't it? If you do, it makes more sense than an atheist's shrug of the shoulders.

    The problem with that is that you have to start out with sub-atomic particles as a given.

    God has an infinite number of Sons and these universes are their class room/Laboratory. God never intended this world to be our home: Eternal life with God is what He desires for us, but He does require our maximum effort while we are here. We are part of a bigger picture.

    If anything, I would think it would only explain all the magic we see happening everywhere, like people transporting through walls and animals morphing into people and stuff.

    Oh, wait. We never see that stuff. Well, carry on.

    In the beginning God created by His word, simple.

    Or the alternative which I'm open minded enough to look into: In the beginning Nothing bought all into existence from nothing by the power of nothing for no reason, purpose or design, Oh and by accidental explosion, or er expansion. As if by magic like pulling a rabbit from a hat, but with out the hat, or rabbit, or any one to pull it.

    Well, God wrote The Book. Every last Scripture will come to pass. Like it or not?

    It's an OK explanation - if you use a word other than "magicking".

    "Magic" could never be a good explanation because it doesn't explain anything and provides no further insight.

    It's a good explaination if you are a bronze age man who doesn't know any better,
