I see your dilemma. You are trapped in the conceptual framework that there MUST be a cause and effect. Prior to the existence of time, cause and effect did not apply.(And then there are naked singularities - "things" that would even scare a supermassive black hole... but that's something else.)<quoted text>
Like i said 1 of 2 choices:
!. God made everything.
2. N O T H IN G made everything.
True believing in God as "always being " is hard to grasp.
But N O T H I N G making everything is far more of a pie in the sky fairy tale.
But maybe you can enlighten our minds to the truth.
Answer if you can Which one do you believe of the 2? Neither?-Than how did the universe get here. or are you like all the rest of us mortals,you do not know "HOW" . Like I said God making everything seems more likely. But sin nce you seem to be far more knowledgeable on the subject ,please answer this. I wager you wont or can't .WAITING. God or NOTHING??(Your choice ).PS both take great faith.
Nothing made everything is hard for you to understand, just as there is infinitely less than nothing "outside" of the universe. Can I explain it to you? No, I'm not an astrophysicist and I wouldn't be able to follow the math even if one explained it to me - but I can conceptualize it.
On the other hand, the great spirit used magic is waaay easier. No math at all. That gives you forces, places, intelligence, direction, personage, etc. BEFORE "the beginning" - all the things that are environmentally comfortable and within your ideological / theological grasp without any strain. I suppose if I were you I'd go with option 2. Have a cookie. Brush your teeth before nap nap.
