No, the science doesn't say the universe came 'from nothing'. Nothing is the complete absence of anything at all, including the laws of quantum mechanics. There is no theory of how the universe arises from absolutely nothing. I do wish people would stop this 'nothing' nonsense when it quite simply isn't true that they have such a theory.

A theory of creation from absolutely nothing is quite possibly a logical impossibility........as absolute nothingness excludes any reason for anything to happen at all.
