Why is the existence of a universe not evidence that there might be a creator of the universe we observe?

Could the fact that a universe exists not mean that there may be a creator? It a yes or no answer really. And we all know that whatever way you boil it down the answer is yes. Now (anticipating some response possibly involving dragons/fairies etc) we would know very little about this creator admittedly.

Now (anticipating some response possibly involving dragons/fairies etc) we would know very little about this creator admittedly. We could know he/she is very powerful at least (to have created a universe). William lane craig actually argues that we could know that the creator would have to be a timeless, spaceless, personal and immaterial being of great power. I agree. But who or what this being was we couldnt know.....unless He/she revealed himself to us. This is where Jesus comes in! But thats another issue.

So the question remains: Why is the existence of a universe not evidence that there might be a creator of the universe we observe?
