Then there's the nothingness the universe may "have come out of" (a phrase I don't like since it fails to emphasize that time is an intrinsic property of the universe and not external to it).

I don't understand what is wrong with using that phrase. It is in the past perfect tense, surely it implies time as intrinsic?

But at this point anyway we all start getting bogged down in semantics, and end up sounding like Pell, or the dear old Archbish of C.
