Apparently, you've never heard of the law of conservation of mass. It completely undermines your claim that mass has a beginning or and end. As far as we can observe, outside of some applications of general relativity in an expanding universe, mass is conserved even as it may change forms. Assuming that mass had a beginning would be assuming that the law of conservation of mass did not, at some previous point, exist. There is no evidence whatsoever for such an event. Arguments premised on made up "facts" are necessarily incorrect.

It means that for you the BB was a lie from the onset. I understand why since the father of the BB theory was a theist called George Lemaitre. What a fallacious attitude!

Mass is evidence of matter and matter is the composition of the universe. Since matter could not have caused itself to exist, the Primal Cause is on.

Concentrate on proving the god your cult sent you here to lie to us about, instead of aimlessly attacking verified science.

Churches in England are treasures as atheism decline in the kingdom

England’s history is a fascinating and complex one. It has always been a significant centre for Christianity, which is confirmed by its abundance of ancient churches and grand cathedrals. Some of the best known of these include:

Durham Cathedral
Officially called the Cathedral Church of Christ, Blessed Mary the Virgin and St Cuthbert of Durham, this church is located in Durham. It was established in 1093 of our Common Era (CE)

Its architecture is recognised as being some of the best displays of Norman skill in the world and has earned this church a UNESCO World Heritage Site award. It was originally constructed as the home for the Bishop of Durham, whose seat is the fourth most important in the Church of England. Visitors usually delight in visiting the relics of St Cuthbert, St Oswald of Northumbria’s head and the remains of the Venerable Bede.

Wells Cathedral
This Somerset church was built at some time between 1175 and 1490. It is renowned for its romantic Early English design and many ornate carvings. The rare glass of the original structure is still in place in certain areas and the large central tower is impressive in its imposing beauty. Since its initial construction, Wells Cathedral has experienced a number of renovations and expansions. It is now a Grade I listed building according to English Heritage. Guided tours are conducted by volunteers and are free.

York Minster

Situated in the English county of Yorkshire, this church dates back to between the 13th and 15th centuries. It is acclaimed as a spectacular medieval church, not only in England, but in all of Europe and is made especially beautiful by its glassworks, stone pieces and open spaces filled only by the majestic music. Like many of the other major churches in England, York Minster has become a tourist attraction, inviting people of all religious denominations to explore it. This church was actually built on the remains of the foundations of the Emperor Constantine’s Roman home. It is also the burial place of many noted Archbishops. Free guided tours are conducted by volunteer guides.

Whether atheism grows or declines churches are always in search of more treasure and that treasure is gleaned from the least educated, the poor and the most gullible. After all who else would believe that "whatsoever you ask it will be given"? Remember now that these are the people who continually ask and ask and ask and .......... Only promises are given, nothing more.
