    There is no such unit in physics as matter.

    You cannot have anything without motion, neither energy, no mass.

    Indeed, but speed is expressed in terms of space and time, eg. 300.000 km per second...

    No option for other?

    I don't think the universe was ever created.

    I think the same. Couldn't it just have always "been"? Why must it have been 'created'?

    None of the poll choices even closely match what I believe, so I am voting "other''.

    I didn't mean to say that if I did. I don't know if God is intelligent, or possesses intelligence as we understand it. It may, It may not. What my faith does tell me is that every man must strive to reach goodness/godliness/holiness. And this is the purpose the major religious traditions serve. To assist man in rising above his self-centered nature in order to benefit community or society. Unfortunately, religious people naturally fail, and many non-religious people are eager to point it out.

    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".

    Re: Where did the Universe come from?

    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!"

    Re: Where did the Universe come from?

    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.
    Education.

    You are correct. This is exactly what I said. Are you be surprised that it had to be explained by you to some who thinks that they are educated? Do you think they understood?

    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?
