    Re: Where did the Universe come from?

    On principle, I have faith that God is ALL. God is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent. God created the Universe. I believe that God did this using mechanisms of science so he used a Big Bang to create the energy of the Universe, which evolved into the galaxies and stars we know today.

    the universe came from the big bang, and as i got told by an astrophysicist, what was before is irrelevant as there was nothing, no space or time

    Well of course we don't know. I left that off on purpose. It's an invalid response as I am asking what you believe to be the likely case. Additionally, I included options 5 and 6 which state that it is general scientific formation or general creationism. You must be able to answer your belief from the options given.

    Where did all the energy come from? Angular momentum? Momentum? Charge?

    I cannot fit a square peg into a round hole, and I am in agreement my answer is: 7. I do not know.

    I stared at the options to find the one that "must" be able to represent my belief, it is not there.

    A "general scientific" viewpoint is that I cannot assert either for or against the existence of god since there is no scientific evidence to base it on, so it does not even fit into the equation.

    As far as I know not even the Bible speculates on any real details of how the universe was created, but I suppose one could imply that God created it. But the Bible isn't intended to explain it either.

    Re: Where did the Universe come from?

    Astonishingly enough, I agree with American on something. My personal view is that God probably didn't see the need to explain the minute details of physics to ancient people since they did not have any formal scientific education. The science in the first few chapters of Genesis was probably simplified and tailored to their frame of reference, however, the main point was not the science of the matter, but the moral understanding of the fall.

    that question is irrelevant as time and space did not exist so it is indeterminable
