This is an argument based on the supposition that the source of our reality (the universe) is undetermined. Also, that the universe may have a vehicle which resides outside of our periphery or has yet to be determined.

I would like to keep this as clean and "elemental/elementary" as possible, scientific theories are welcome only if presented as possibilities/probabilities in an infinitely measurable/immeasurable universe.

It looks like the Big Bang happened.

Whether you say it is the beginning of the universe or whatever is your business, but regardless, observation suggests the Big Bang is a thing which has happened.

Insofar as things appearing a certain way is evidence that they ARE that certain way, we have evidence that the Big Bang happened.

Insofar as observation does not provide evidence for how things are, we do not have evidence for a Big Bang having happened.

Do we have any disagreement on these points?

So are you going to hide in the safe realm of abstract philosophy and vague analogies, or are you going to use concrete scientific facts and evidence?

Well we think the Big Bang theory is correct, but it's not necessarily the creation of the universe. I mean, stuff was still here pre-BB in the form of a really, REALLY dense speck of all matter and energy, and if the Big Crunch theory is correct then it's possible that the universe has gone through repeated cycles of BB to BC.
