The universe? Yes. If anything, quantum mechanics has been our first hint that there might be "something more" than the universe. And this "something more" looks like it is not deterministic, possibly random. Out of virtually infinite random possibility, the spontaneous emergence of order, such as what we are witnessing, does not seem so unlikely after all.

Personally I think so.

Determinism is as impossible as nothingness

Nah, I change my mind. (sort of)
It's deterministic from an orthogonal view of our universe. But otherwise, the infinite detail is impossible to completely know. So it's effectively nondeterministic at some scale. Not saying you can't briefly juxtaposition yourself askew to some dimensions to take a peek at what will/did happen.
