    If not a Gor or gods - then how did our little dull Universe sprang from the dust? smile

      Scientists have a few theories based on the evidence they've found, most understand the universe came into existence on its own.

      Religions have come up with a host of creationism fables, but none of them are valid in any way.

        Can you explain how it ' came into existence on its own'?

          No one can as yet. However, the individual concepts leading up to such an explanation are beginning to take shape. For example, the concept of "nothing" is currently under investigation as it appears the universe is a 'something from nothing' explanation.

            Nice reply. By the way, what is that  'something from nothing'? Sounds interesting.

              Laurence Krauss, a theoretical physicist, wrote a book on the subject... "A Universe from Nothing: Why there is Something Rather than Nothing"

              He explains some of it in this video...

                Thanks for the link! Anyway, this "Something Rather than Nothing" concept sounds to have a Buddhist tinge. Maybe. Even science stumbles occasionally into philosophy.

                  Actually, it has nothing to do with Buddhism.

                    Then Buddhism has something to do with it.

    I don't see the universe as little, or dull, but given enough time and research I assume we'll be able to answer that question. My personal opinion is that once we understand how this universe sprang into being we'll have twice as many questions than we started with.
