What's wrong with your intellect? Why haven't you provided evidence that science knows what caused SOMETHING to expand, and where it came from?

It's not up to us to prove your assertions, you made them, you prove it.
I don't subscribe to the notion that nothing caused something to expand and form the universe. Only atheists make that assertion You at least, admitted that science does not know what the cause was, but surely you wonder. Surely you must have some thoughts of your own that don't require the validation of science, right?

Since you have a vast repertoire of scientific knowledge at your disposal due to education, why can't you explain what caused SOMETHING to expand and form the universe? Why can't you tell me where it came from?

No one has said "nothing caused something" except you, you made that assertion as a strawman. Then you inferred that you know what caused it. We just want the evidence that suggests your assertion of what caused it, that's all, if you cannot present the evidence then your assertion is baseless and thus making it is inherently a lie.

Where did this something come from? Explain What ---> caused <--- this something to expand rapidly.
Who knows where it came from? It always was? It came from another universe?

It is the prior form of the present universe?

As for what caused it?

Gravity. Or quarks. Or dark energy. Or quantum fluctuation of the underlying structure of the universe.

Or something else that is... NATURAL.

Duuuh.

Are you seriously this dense?

Just because we don't have an exact answer?

DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY MEAN "GODDIDIT"

You are seriously a moron, if you think it does.

Lmao!!!! Antitheists need some science lessons. Antitheists need some logic lessons. Antitheists need some evidence that meets their own criteria. I need more string for my marionettes LOL.

Absolutely no evidence or accountable position since 2009. That's 65,000 posts and years spent trying to steer the narrative to others making a case for a God they don't believe in. Your illogical nothing cannot be hidden.
I believe a prime mover is th most plausible explanation for origin and will debate that vs whatever these viewed refuse to defend. Nothing is of course what they have. I am perfectly comfortable knowing they purposefully avoid the evidences of many disciplines of a prime mover. Of course nothing is evidence to these folks, but they bring their insanities and hate online for all to see. I enjoy exposing this farce.

What's the matter, don't like the label atheist? Neither does Bill Maher."I like rationalist a lot better. I preach the gospel of 'I don't know,' " he said. Who can blame him for not wanting to be associated with a pack of brainless pseudo-intellectuals, eh?
The reason why "atheist" is often rejected by rational thinkers, is because HATETHEISTS such as yourself re-define the word into a strawam non-word of your own design.

In a pathetic and dishonest attempt to re-brand rationalists into some sort of brain-dead BELIEVER (like you are now).

But that won't fly. Rational thinkers just don't believe in stupid sh7t, like gods.

But you do-- thus? You are stupid.

There is no two ways about that: you believe in stupid shyt (gods).

So you are all kinds of self-induced stupid.

Nice, so you can't counter anything I post, how cute. It's always fun to watch you fundies squirm when logic is presented.
They do melt-down pretty quick, and reveal themselves to be full of seething hate.

A classic tell for a True Believer™.

Just because some questions are properly unknown?

<quoted text>i have dodged nothing. why do you think science has the answer to every wuestion humankind has ever asked?
no human knows the answer to that question. why can't you just accept that? why do you have to make up some myth about it and then claim it as fact?
If You and science cannot answer these questions...then you cannot claim that religion's answers are invalid.

In which case, why say 6 days?
