Yes. It is called the Big Bang.

Answer #4 | 13/02 2014 07:23
The answer is we don't know. How do you know it came to be from nothing? Instead of making up a fairy tale to explain something we don't understand, like Christians, we accept that there are things for which we don't have enough data.

There is no evidence for that. There is also no evidence for or against the universe having an infinitely long past. (One should not confuse a possible origin of the universe with the big bang. The big bang is the expansion of the universe and is still visibly in progress. Evidence indicates that the present expansion had a start.) . .

Yes, it happened. The Big Bang Theory is not about creation, just what happened afterwards, it merely presumes creation occurred. Science doesn't insist on knowing all the answers and never claimed to know all the answers, only religions do.

The definition of "the Universe" is literally everything. That includes God. God is part of our Universe. I think God cannot create our Universe because he is part of it. The current scientific view is that our Universe began as a singularity that expanded rapidly. No one knows exactly how it got started. If God did it then he must predate the Big Bang. Is that possible? My father used to ask me, "If God made the Universe, who made God?" These are questions that can never be answered. One thing is for certain. None of these issues are addressed in the Bible. In that sense, the Bible is a woefully inadequate work. It never mentions atoms and molecules, sub-atomic particles, nor even biological cells nor DNA, etc. We must look elsewhere for our answers.

///"explain to me how the universe came into being from nothing?"/// If? there was ever a "time" when nothing existed (highly improbable) then by definition "nothing" has no existence in a timeless time when "time" also has no existence, thus : Without the existence of "anything" including "time" there can be no event. (creation event included) . . . "In the true definition of "Nothing" : No_thing may occur." . . There was NEVER nothing. . All the best.

Answer #11 | 13/02 2014 11:26
We don't know everything about the Universe and really what would the fun be in that? But one thing we are pretty sure of is that no gods decided they really wanted a fawning audience so they created the Universe. THAT isn't a possibility.

Answer #14 | 13/02 2014 19:57
There is indirect evidence that particles (that is, actual stuff) pops in and out of existence between the quarks in the center of fundamental particles (protons and neutrons). That is, something occurs from nothing. If particles can do this, then it stands to reason a universe could as well. If nothing is described or defined as potential, then there are a few things that are possible that we humans have a hard time grasping. But I would be much more interested in theists expelling "how" the universe cdm into being from nothing ... and if their answer is god ... "how" did god come into being from nothing. As I said, there is indirect measurements of what's going on inside fundamental particles. We can't even get a good theory for a god to test.

Answer #15 | 13/02 2014 21:58
This is not an answer, but more like a question to the answer. So if the Universe is presumably infinite years old, is it not the same as God? Is this not belief also? For according to science, everything has a beginning. (I am not including theories.)

There are many propositions as to how the universe came to be. However, they are all extremely vague and not appreciated. An example of these theories is the cosmological cycle theory. In this theory there was never a beginning, the universe(s) always existed. Each one of these universes started with a big bang, which is essentially just a rapid expansion from a central point due to copious amounts of energy. Then, after the universe expands for billions and billions of years it then runs out of energy, thus causing it to contract via big crunch. This contraction brings the universe back into an infinitesimal central point. Once the universe then reaches maximum contraction into a central point, this central point now has so much energy that it expands again into another universe. This cycle then repeats infinitely. There are also theories based on the idea that this is the only universe and it was created via quantum fluctuation, there is of course the theory that a pseudo creature created our universe, etc. But you must understand that whether the universe was created or just physically came to be, you must appreciate living. But how did living on Earth start? See, approximately 4 billions the earth was under the Archeozoic Era. During this era the earth mainly consisted of various gases. These gases saturated our earth and essentially made it uninhabitable. This is when the sun comes in to play. See, the sun emits radiation, as you probably know. This radiation acted on these gases to form amino acids and sugars. Those amino acids and sugars then linked together to form the first living cell. This cell then evolved into primeval organisms and creatures, those creatures then evolved into more modern creatures, etc. That is why we are here children!
