Time is infinite as well as space. So there is no beginning. This of course is a religious belief as there is no way for me to know that the universe or universes are infinite in time and space.

However, that is the answer to your question. If Smolin and Greene are correct, then there is no beginning except to each separate universe. But there is always a universe that preceeded it. There are as well an infinite number of universes, each perhaps with its own god.



PS The answer to who came first- the chicken or the egg- is the rooster.
