No it didn't.
The universe isn't a bus. It doesn't "come from" and it isn't "going to" anywhere. It is just the totality of existence, in all space and time. Asking "what came before the first event?" is as stupid as asking "what is North of the North Pole?"
if you accept the fact that the big bang happened it isn't to far fetched to believe it was created by something else as someone else said String theory
it is FAR from a stupid question
however your reply is about the stupidest i've seen in along time.
i think EVERYONE wants to know the answer to this question
don't be an ass.
He's not being an ass, he is correct. Your question is unanswerable, as it doesn't properly incorporate the big bang theory, but rather your sloppy interpretation of it.
The universe is the sum total of all that exists, and since "time" did not exist before the big bang, there is no "before" the big bang. The question itself is an oxymoron.

I have no idea where it came from - doesnt mean that it didnt come from something.
The more important question is, did a man in the clouds make everything up? And add millions of galaxies for no real reason?

A singularity is a point in space / time (if indeed time did exist before this event) where matter is condensed by gravity to such an extreme that it literally could take up the space of a single atom. Essentially we are talking about the most massive black hole that could ever exist in this universe because it literally was the universe. Personally I don't know how something like this could go "Bang" and form the universe unless it was triggered somehow. We really have no evidence of a black hole spontaneously exploding nor do we see evidence of extra universal elements being introduced into our own environment. Personally I beleive this was triggered by God, but that's just me.
