Nope, the other way round. If there were a Creator or Creators who can and could do anything and everything at a whim, then we would expect the Laws of Nature to change. All the evidence we have show that the way the Universe works has not changed for more than 13 billion years. Therefore no Creator or Creators.

Re: Actual Big Bang Theory
Yes, as a layman on physics that's my take on it, too. While the Laws change; the behaviour (workings) of the Universe hasn't at all. We just learn more about how the Universe works. That's why any sane modern scientist would be reluctant to call a discovery a Law.
