Now, shall we turn the table and talk about the origin of the universe and atheism?Come on guys. It's a basic manner to answer a question before asking a new question.
What do you say about the origin of the universe?
a)the big bang?
b)has always existed?
I pick a little bit of A, B and C.
A: because I accept the big bang as the best possible explanation for the origin of the universe. Reason being because it makes more sense than what religious text have to say about the origin of the universe. However, regarding atheism: There could
have been some deity behind the big bang. Maybe he made the universe out of bordom while he was waiting for his coffee to brew. I don't know. I wasn't there. I do hold a .01 percent chance of there being a god, just to be safe. But when it comes to certain
god's, like YHWH, Zeus, Allah, etc. I sincerely doubt they exist. But then again, an acceptance of the big bang has got nothing to do with atheism.
B: It could have always existed. IDK. I'm not qualified to confirm or deny that the universe has always existed in one form or another
C: There must have been some kind of origin for whatever expanded. Just don't know what it is yet, how it got there, etc.
