[quote author=“fencesitter”]I agree, however, forgetting about the christian or any other god. Do you ever lean towards thinking that there may be a COTU? I other words do you believe that something can come from nothing? I guess that would be like thinking there was something besides something or nothing, or perhaps nothing besides something or nothing.
Do you think “highly likely” make you free from doubt?
I dont believe the universe came from ‘nothing’. ‘Something’ was there, but not in a form we would recognize, as in spacetime. Without mass, there is no spacetime. But there was most certainly a quantum universe, and I believe thats the most likely source of our present universe.
There are always particles appearing and disappearing, everywhere. I wouldnt accept an explanation saying that they appeared from nothing and went back to nothing—they came from something. What the nature of that ‘something’ is, is beyond me, but I think someday we’ll figure it out. Not only that but exactly how this universe came into being.
I am free from doubt that a natural explantion can be found for any phenomenom.
