Is there anyone who doesn't ask this question? If not, why not? I'm pretty confident that any thinker has pondered this. Hmmm... why is this such a concern of ours? Why is this question in our mind? Why were we not content with just being? You know, as in the earth was always here.
Well, regardless, we asked.
Science is now telling us that the universe came into existence when a primordial start of elemental condition started to expand. Which still begs the question, "where did that came from?" It's difficult to imagine nothing into something; it just doesn't make sense. We are always going to be asking, "where did that come from?"
Creationist on the other hand have decided a source. Whichever god they choose has just always been there. But just as the previous theory, there isn't quite a satisfaction. You can argue recursive creation for both, but then you are left with option 3: the universe has always been here.
But again, if you say that, why can't you say "God has always been here," or "the elements have always been there."
So, we are trying to pinpoint this beginning and are using the same arguments on each other as if they are irrelevant to our own theory.
There must have been something that started it all. Either the elements existed forever or a creator. So now we have to chose which we like better.
Which do you find more logical: something/someone has always been, or nothing turning into something?
