I do find it hard to believe something not having a beginning or end

Umm, not sure about that. Now I dont have any specifics on the big bang but here is my guess. The bang is what caused the universe, so everything must have been in a tight little bundle ready to explode. Then boom, everything scatters, so basically all the universe particles, including earth are traveling at the speed of the explosion through the galaxy. So therefore we cannot see the big bang because the universe had a front row seat of it, so to say. Ill try for an example...if you had a powerfull light that could shine to the moon, and you had a friend on the moon who was waiting to see your light. You would see the light as soon as you turned it on, because you are right there, like we were in the BIG BANG. But it would take your friend a while to see that light, but since there was nothing in the universe before the BIG BANG, noone will ever see it. Kind of a strange explaination but thats the only way I could think of puttin it.

Anyway, I don't think that the Big Bang has been shown to us yet.
