From the Big Bang, not sure what was before. God does not exist and was not involved.
Not the Big Bang, but some other physical event. God does not exist and was not involved.
God created the Universe without a Big Bang. Earth was especially created.
God created the Universe with a Big Bang and then the universe evolved.
Some other mechanism created the Universe, without God...
God created the Universe in some other fashion...
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
No option for other?
I don't think the universe was ever created.
"The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis."
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice....shame on me.
So, while God as a "intelligent entity" may not actually exist, it is my belief that goodness does exist and it is best if every human can make it a deep part of our lives. I refer to this goodness as God (some also call it Love), and that can confuse most "non-believers".
I'm reminded of the South Park episode where God finally revealed himself. Some tiny green lizardy thing. "Well, what did you think I'd look like?"
"I don't know... but not like that!"
One of you will end up here next!
Don't feel like reading 26 pages...
So, I go with the previously mentioned "Option 7".
I don't know.
As that is what I believe, I cannot say which of the other 6 possible answers is closer to what I believe.
In short, I believe that I do not know where the Universe came from. Or, for that matter, if it even exists at all.
Edit: Or anything, really.
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
I have not been to France. All friends of mine are negative in their experience. But you make me think… – in the US they teach only atheism in schools and colleges. Do they still teach how to count in France? Or it is just somewhere from your family, when France used to be a center of culture?
