There always needs to be a beginning, but I always struggle with what created the "thing" that created the beginning... It's the chicken or the egg debate and honestly it hurts my brain whenever i try to think about it.. Don't get me wrong, this subject fascinates me, but it also bothers me that we will never know... This will be an unsolved mystery forever....
Say two particles collided, well what created those particles?? things dont just exist for zero reason...edit on 11-6-2013 by jhn7537 because: (no reason given)

Please explain when have you seen an explosion pick up speed as time goes by, it violates the inverse square law, energy dissipates the further from the epicenter you travel, not speed up the further you travel.
Why is there something rather than nothing? Well, ultimately there are a variety of answers, which is why I wrote a whole book about it. But the remarkable thing is that our picture has changed completely because we changed what we mean by something and nothing. Nothing is far more subtle than you might imagine, for the Bible for example, nothing would have been a vast, eternal empty universe. That would have been, you know, a void. Well that kind of nothing we now understand--namely empty space if you get rid of all the particles and all the radiation--that kind of nothing is actually quite complicated. In the modern universe it’s a boiling, bubbling brew of virtual particles popping in and out of existence on a timescale so short you can’t see them. So there’s nothing there but actually lots of stuff is happening. You just can’t see it, and that kind of nothing, one of the remarkable things we’ve learned is that kind of nothing is unstable. Empty space is unstable.
