I don't believe that there was a "universe" prior to the "Big Bang".
It might have just been different than the universe as we know it.

There are still more unanswered questions than there are answered ones.

God did it ... or maybe not. No one knows.
I know. Honest scientists know. Only God is capable. Only God provides a coherent
explanation. Only God. Scores if not hundreds of books validate this fact.

Why don't you believe that God created the universe?
.
so alien, those desert religions, page 1, begin as polytheistic - then abandon their own premise each going separately into the oblivion - of decadence and selfabsorption.

the universe is whatever the metaphysical make it. time and space being eternal.

Who determines what the metaphysical makes it?
