What universe?
"Every kid starts out as a natural-born scientist, and then we beat it out of them. A few trickle through the system with their wonder and enthusiasm for science intact." - Carl Sagan

This is the response of the defenders of Sparta to the Commander of the Roman Army: "If you are a god, you will not hurt those who have never injured you. If you are a man, advance - you will find men equal to yourself. And women.

The source, sustenance, and purpose of existence is a mystery. And that's rather frustrating for a species that survives and thrives by their ability to understand and manipulate their environment. Unfortunately, we are able to ask questions that we are not able to answer.

Welcome to the human condition.

What do YOU think about it?

You say that nothing comes from nothing.

I say that it is only through nothing that we can have anything.

There's no such thing as nothing.

Yes, something cannot come from nothing, but God made something come from nothing. Makes complete sense......lol The theists have away around this contradiction though. They believe that something cannot come from nothing, by nothing. However, something can come from nothing, by something.

So a universe from nothing cause God "choose" a universe to come from nothing = Good.

A universe from nothing without God making a "choice" about a universe coming from nothing = Bad, f&ck off atheist scum.

Sounds about right.
