It would provide an explanation for our existence only by pushing back the
problem a step. We exist because (God) super-aliens running our universe on
a computer created us. But why (how) do these aliens exist. Since
postulating such beings only adds to the number of entities to be explained,
methodologically it's best not to postulate them, unless there are
independent reasons to think they exist.
