First off, I have no proof of anything.

Naturalistic biogenesis happened
               I believe evolution is the basis of it all, starting with positive and negative charges of ions.  And then throw in an incredibly long and underestimated (by theists) amount of time and “natural” experiments.

              Yes, I believe this.   See Lawrence Krauss YouTube videos.

            Maybe.

Definitely.  There is no question in my mind.  The universe follows rules.  Life is as natural an occurrence as salt.

Quote
The big bang came out of nothing
I can't speculate on this because my knowledge of "nothing" is based on my model of this universe.  What triggered the big bang was most likely not definable within this model.

Quote
An infinite number of big bangs have occurred
I can't speculate with any accuracy about such a thing because I do not know what triggered the big bang.  (Read above.)

We exist in a multiverse that string theory is uncovering
I think our concept of "universe" is too restricted to start diving into "multiverse".  However, I do believe that string theory is developing a method of describing how time and space are interwoven.  This may reveal a multiverse, but not in the traditional sense, I don't think.

Guessing is what makes theoretical physics fun.  I love to speculate, but I don't love purporting "truth" that is only defined by speculation.

God did it dummy
Anyone who can look at single leaf and believe that a god had the capacity to expertly craft and care for it is a fool.
