Concerning "God theory can explain absolutely positively NOTHING, zero zilch nada goose egg." it could mean that somebody could believe to be able to apply and/or learn from Russell's paradox, infinities, collection of all sets, why ZF has to restrict on axiom of comprehension in relation to this etc., as these ideas seem to imply existence of the kinds of transcendental objects/gods/entities that have the potential to escape our understanding. That person could hold that in a given theory we can indeed work with, around, away from, or against such concepts; thereby explaining a variety of scientific problems and refuting your absolute statement on what any "god theory" can/cannot explain. Such a someone, Lebowski in this example, would see your statement on "God theory" as excessive and as rigid unscientific belief. Just an opinion ignoring standard and established scientific search and facts by reference to certain theories. It would be wishful thinking to them.
