The way I've always understood it, before the big bang there was something. A singularity, all the matter in the universe compressed down to a
single point. What caused this singularity to explode, what caused the singularity, did the matter implode to a singularity, what was before the
singularity, these are all questions that do not currently have an answer.
This is based of off the information humanity has managed to obtain in its short lifetime, so whether or not its the exact truth or completely wrong
is definitely up for debate. That said, it is an explanation based on data and is the closest answer we are capable at this time.
There are a never ending list of questions we can ask, and every answer just leads to more questions. This is why i feel religion should not be
involved in the scientific search for answers. Religion already has all the answers they need, science will never have all the answers.
I don't mean to come off as anti-religion. I think its fine and dandy for a person to have their own personal belief system and their own
perspective on the world, the universe and beyond. I might even go so far as to say it's healthy. What I am against is when those personal beliefs
stand in the way of scientific progress. There should be no need for religion to stifle scientific progress, because if any of it is true, science
and religion will eventually coalesce. The only reason to try and stifle scientific progress is if they fear the findings. Good or bad, knowledge is
something we should always fight and strive for.
