If you notice e=mc2 means matter can exist in 3 states. E is energy, we are just now starting to measure dark energy, so there is undetectable dark energy that permeates this universe. I believe this energy has always been. Sometimes they may well be a large build up of this invisible energy on a scale we can't imagine that can burst forth a new universe. Its far more likely than the ideas put forth in any religious book. Precisely because it can happen, where other claims are so preposterous, I feel its likely it may have.
The idea that a god of any bible would go through the contortions of a big bang just so 13.7 billion years later humans could evolve on a speck of nothing is mind bottling. I can't understand for the life of me how people fail to see the absolute conceit of such a notion. It truly is amazing.
As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. -HL Mencken 1933
