It claims a start to the current expansion phase. Whether or not there was a "before" is not yet determined.I'm not asking for the date of the start down to the day. Does science claim there is a start to the universe?
No it ain't."It is not known if anything exists "outside" the universe."
Well it is known God exist outside of the universe
Actually science has no idea yet whether matter can exist elsewhere or not. So if they don't know, you certainly don't know.but I was talking of matter.
Matter cannot exist outside the universe. For where there is matter there is our universe.
In short, you know jack. And that's about it.
