"inflation could also take place spontaneousely."

Okay, but doesn't this imply causality? I was under the impression that there was no "before" the Big Bang. So, is it possible for something to occur with no cause? I find this a little difficult to believe. Although, I find the alternative equally difficult to believe: causing factors all the way back to infinity. Which is more mathematically defensible: effect with no cause, or turtles all the way down? And, if it is turtles all the way down, would this imply causality (time) all the way down?
