Some of those did, yes. Make My head spin. But the first lies on the ground that something can't come from nothing. This can be shown to be false in that virtual particles "spring from nothing." Or would You call them and their energy nothing?
And, in truth... How do We KNOW something cannot come from nothing?

Why do you think we are in the veil of ingnorance, we are not suppose to know.edit on 18-9-2011 by googolplex because: (no reason given)
There couldn't have been a big bang, unless ALL known matter was within that first...something. So we are to believe that all infinitesimal matter was contained within that very first spark? All matter that was, is and ever will be?
Currently there are three major pieces of evidence that have led the Big Bang theory to hold sway in cosmology today.
1) During the early development of Microwave communications systems, researchers from Bell Labs found a background noise, a hiss' they could not explain. Further research and experimentation led them to conclude that this noise was coming from radiation that permeates the universe and was caused by the explosion of the mono-block that we call the Big Bang theory.
2) Estimates of the size and distribution of matter throughout the universe has led cosmologists to conclude that there would not be enough of a gravitational effect to halt the expansion of the universe given its current speed of expansion. This leads to the conclusion that the universe will continue to expand indefinitely.
3) Given the current computed course and speed of the stars that have been studied in this context up until now, their paths can be backtracked to a common point of origin.

#3. Movement is impossible. (tortoise paradox)
#4. Aging is impossible (similar to the theory of movement).
#5. Space does not exist.
#6. The universe must be either finite or infinite, and not both.
#7 "Particulars" are not "Universals"
A universal 'horse' is not a particular horse, because the universal refers to all horses and not one horse. Similarly, one horse can not describe the universal horse. Thus, there is no logical reason to call a particular horse a 'horse.'
