    I believe that God created the universe in a special fashion. I don't believe the universe is billions of years old either. Science has been hijacked by the naturalist's philosophy. I am the sole voter for option #3

    Care to explain WHY you believe what you do?

    1) What reason or evidence makes you believe God created the universe?

    2) What makes you believe the universe isn't billions of years old? Have you read why geologists and scientists claim this?

    3) how has science been "hijacked by the naturalist's philosophy"? What reason or evidence do you have for this or are you merely parroting your preacher's/Sunday_school_teacher's sermon?

    I voted God created the universe and then it evolved.

    In my admitted non intellectual mind...something has to come from something...nothing is nothing...
    So the scientific view that it came from nothing doesnt work for me.

    How is there a god if there was nothing? Something had to come from something, right? So any 'god/dess' would have to come from something? So if it created everything, then where did it come from?

    And if it has always existed, then the same could be said for energy in the universe. It just always existed.

    "Asking what came before the Big Bang is like asking what lies North of the North Pole" ~ Stephen Hawking (paraphrased).

    If time was created at the the instant of the BB, our quaint ideas of things like time-constrained causality start to break down and stop working at that point. Beyond that? There are speculations on many lines of reasoning, but no-one knows for sure.
    The truth may be out there, but lies are in your head. ~Terry Pratchett

    Re: Where did the Universe come from?

    The question is invalid. "The Universe" is everything, so it can't "come from" anywhere, as everywhere is part of it.

    the Universe simply has always been here, and will always be here. Only the Human mind thinks in terms of beginning and ending.
