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.
To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture.
