Rabbi Kaplan zt"l seems to agree with the problem that Mr.Zlochower
mentions above, but you cannot necessarily reject the approach that says
the universe was created the way it is now because there ARE Gedolim (Great
Torah Scholars) who based on their understanding and experience in Torah
consider that possibility.
