There is no question about the existence of the universe. It has been naturally proved with the existence of matter. Alternative means a probability or another option. The question here is to consider the alternative of the Primal Cause or the uncaused alternative. Since the BB has been taken as the strongest evidence ever for the beginning of the universe, the alternative of the Primal Cause has been strengthened.
Wrong. Since time itself begins with the Big Bang, it is impossible for the BB to be caused in the standard theory (as proposed by LeMaitre).

Another important one:

In which state a particle in a superposition will be detected. In particular, the EPR paradox and verifying experiment show both non-causality and lack of definite properties of particles in flight.

All of the quantum processes are pretty much game for uncaused events.

But, from reading your stuff, I see you are entirely ignorant of anything in that area of science.

What's worse? You seem 100% incapable of understanding it, as well.

Pity.

Your questions would be answered-- if only you had the mental capacity to ...

.... learn something new.

Sad.

As far as Physics is concerned, time is caused by the motion of matter. Try again.

1. Particles of whatever are akin to matter which cannot be uncaused.
2. Location is akin to space which is also an accident of matter. Space cannot be spoken of without matter to determine it.
3. That time is an accident of the spontaneous emission of matter. Anything subject to matter is caused by the contingency of matter.
4. The same as above. Keep trying.

The BB cannot have occurred out of nothing. Only matter in motion would cause time. Albeit not aware of what you have said you have admitted that time was cause as an accident of matter.

Again with this assertion of yours above you have admitted that time is an accident of matter (particles) in motion.

Once again, the specific time for the decay is not caused.

And no, time is *not* caused by the motion of matter in physics.

So you persist in ignoring the actual evidence by making false philosophical claims.

No, time and space are NOT accidents of matter.

How have I done that?

Once again, and very carefully. If I put a particle into a superpositional state, the specific state it is detected in by a later experiment is uncaused. It is purely probabilistic.

If you don't understand the examples, just ask about them.

In the decay of a muon, there is no difference between the muon a pico-second before the decay and that muon at any other time.The decay itself is uncaused. There is no 'fuse' inside a muon or spring that goes off to make it decay.

For virtual particles, they literally come into existence out of nothing in a purely probabilistic way: there is no causality here.

In the case of an electron in a double slit experiment, there is no way, even in theory, to predict where the electron will hit the detector. it is purely probabilistic and uncaused.

Maybe we have a difference in definitions. Perhaps we can get further if you give me *your* definition of the word 'cause'. What do *you* mean when you say that 'A causes B'? Be precise. Don't simply give trivial examples; give a precise definition.

Time, space, energy, and matter are all co-existent and uncaused.

Uh...no.

I suggest you stay away from the subject of physics since you know virtually nothing about it.

"strawman fallacy

You misrepresented someone's argument to make it easier to attack.

By exaggerating, misrepresenting, or just completely fabricating someone's argument, it's much easier to present your own position as being reasonable, but this kind of dishonesty serves to undermine honest rational debate."
