“Perhaps our descendants will regard our present ignorance with as much sympathy as we feel to ancients for not knowing whether the earth went around the sun. If the general picture however over Big-Bang followed by an expending universe is correct, what happened before that? Was the universe devoid of all matter and then the matter suddenly somehow created? How did that happen?
In many cultures the customary answer is that God or Gods created the Universe out of nothing. But if we wish to pursue this question courageously we must of course ask the next question: Where did God come from? If we decide that this is an unanswerable question, why not save a step and conclude that the origin of the universe is an unanswerable question. Or if we say that God always existed, why not save a step and conclude that the universe always existed, that there is no need for creation that it’s always here.” – Carl Sagan.
