Who/What do you believe created the universe?

    Who or what do you believe created the universe? An all powerful being. The big bang. Or some other variation.

      The Big Bang.

      Believe? I hold no belief about the Universe. I see no reason for a belief it was created by a who. What? Is another story altogether and to ask, no one actually knows.

      The universe is its own creator, the self created.    It is establishes itself at the speed of thought and the quietness of knowing.

      What is percieved as the universe isnt the universe at all.
      It is merely the backside of the universe being in the light for a while.

      So long as a person depends on eyes and ears no matter how super he makes them, he will never percieve the nature of the universe.

    I don't want to believe anything. It is unknown, at this point. I'm curious why we can't accept that some things take a great deal of time and research in order to come to firm conclusions based on factual information; instead of jumping to conclusions.

    It's an incredibly fascinating question, that will probably remain a mystery past our lifetimes.

      In order to accept that something takes a great deal of time and research to come to a conclusion, wouldn't we first need to do studies including research that is very time consuming to come to the first conclusion...? Kind of created a loop here...

        No. Simple observations made us aware of the universe. Curiosity makes us work to understand what it is. Simple observation tells us that things have a beginning. Research will show us, hopefully, what that beginning was for the universe we live in.

        Unless you are implying that looking around and saying ' what's all this and how did it come to be?' constitutes the first part of the loop of research.

          No the loop was created with the realization that you shouldn't research something if it is going to take a long time and give no results. Wouldn't researching this research only create more research on your research, thus creating a loop?

            That is the beauty of it all. It does seem that way. Doesn't it? The more we learn, the more we see how little we know.

              That is definitely true. We learn more and more each day, but with each thing we learn we have 10 new questions.

                But, we are progressing. That's the most important part.

    No science, no spiritual B.S.?So...you walk into a room, and there is a table set up with all kinds of food, so without any other data, you just sit down and start eating. The universe recycles everything. Seems to all run on birth, life, death and re-birth. Endless cycle.

      That's an interesting theory on how it works internally. How do you think the initial birth happened?

        Perpetual motion. We can't create it, but that doesn't mean that isn't how the universe works...we can't create the universe, either. Energy is the 'start' and energy is the 'end'.

          That reverts back to the question: "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" You're referring to the conservation of energy and mass. That doesn't really have anything to do with how we were created though... I mean it's important, but not really involved.

    "Who/What do you believe created the universe?"

    I have accepted the fact that I don't know.

      No beliefs? Or at least speculations...

        Speculations are indeed fun. big_smile

    I believe God created it some 12.6 billion years ago by method of Big Bang.

    If I baked a cake and said "Lo the cake is good", the fundamentalist would say I spoke it into being as a special act of creation, whilst some clever egghead types might spend their careers working out how I did it. The point is I never left a recipe book and the cake tins have disappeared.
