← Science can't explain the big bang - there is still scope for a creator

aquilacane's Avatar Jump to comment 18 by aquilacane

Perhaps something cannot come of nothing and we just have to accept that nothingness is impossible. perhaps existence is the only existence possible. There is no creator because there is nothing to create; matter has always existed. If matter could come from nothing then the potential of matter must have existed before matter and; therefore, the existence of potential rules out the existence of nothing. I am strongly becoming convinced that nothingness is impossible. I can't have nothing but I can not have something.
