Take two of these:
4) We cannot appeal to the singularity as the cause of the universe. If the big bang singularity is precisely nothing, we are left with the question of how the universe then came into existence out of nothing. Others have argued that a big bang singularity would be a real physical state; but if so it would still just exist at the time t=0. In that case we have to ask “how did the singularity come into existence out of nothing?”
5) Some speculate that future scientific research will provide strong evidence in favour of cosmologies that avoid a beginning of the universe. For example, in the oscillating universe model the universe expands, then collapses back on itself, then expands again, and so on. However, many such models turn out to be incompatible with an infinite number of cycles and so do not avoid the beginning. Furthermore, our current evidence indicates that our universe will not collapse back in on itself… More.
when you hear: Blueprint for science without evidence
Universe is likely just an alien computer sim
As if the multiverse wasn’t bizarre enough …meet Many Worlds
Be sure of one thing, though: The new cosmologists mean all the bizarre stuff. It’s naturalism’s only hope.
