My World View – Something From Nothing
Well, this argument goes on and on; Why is there something rather than nothing – or The Cosmological Argument for God. I can’t say that Lawrence Krauss‘ argument answers all the questions this spawns, but he does a good job of explaining why physicists can say that something does come from nothing – no god required. This video is well worth watching – several times.
There are perspectives which start with the idea that the big bang was just a spark between two rocks and our entire universe exists within that spark. Our ‘something’ might be nothing after all. What the real answer is has not been agreed upon. I have my own ideas that it might be a big splash and not a big bang but either one is the dispersion of energy which decays toward equilibrium in a medium (space).
The take away from all of it is that gods are not required to explain the existence of the universe as we know it. There is one less gap that gods can hide in.
