Russian, tell me what this sounds like.
For countless ages there was utter darkness;
No earth, no sky, only God's will.
No day, no night, neither the Moon nor the Sun.
He sat in trance in the void.
There was no eating, no speaking.
There was no water, no air,
No creation, no destruction,
No coming, no going,
There were no planets, no underworld,
None of the seven seas
With rivers flowing into them.
There were no planes: higher, middle or lower,
Neither hell nor heaven, nor any hour of death,
No suffering, no bliss,
No birth, no death,
No entry, no exit.
There was no Brahma, no Vishnu, no Shiva.
With His order, the world was created.
It is maintained without any support.
He created Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
He created also the love of Maya.
Only a few are blessed with His Word.
He watches and rules over all.
He brought about the planets, the hemisphere
And the underworld.
And became Himself manifest.
It is the True Guru alone who imparts this
Says Nanak those who are truthful live in
They are blessed with recitation of God's Name.

Think of the big bang as a big nuclear implosion. The universe was somewhat like it is now then all the stars started to collapse and create black holes which eventually lead to everything being suck together and compressing by its own gravitational force then once it got to the point where it could not compress anymore it just blew up and everthing scattered thus creating the universe as we know it now. In like a trillion years or longer this will probably happen again and the whole cycle will start over. This is just my theory on what the Big Bang is and of course I will never be able to find out whether I'm right or not but it seems like a very logical explaination to me because of the facts that we do know.

but how can there be a cycle without a beginning? how did the cycle become what it is?

Can someone explain to me what existed before the "big bang"?
Was it just complete nothingness?

Fewer topics will stir emotions such as evolution vs creation. I remember in high school in biology class evolution and the big bang theory was taught as if it was fact. I was the only one who disputed that infact it was just a theory and that no one really knew where we came from.
I don't doubt the possibility that we were created by natural selection. But I personally believe in a God that governs the universe. Evolution has been used by man as an excuse to rule God out.
