Purpose and "Something from nothing". First of all, there is always this assumption of purpose. Well, we don't really necessarly have a purpose. And I don't suggest that our universe came from nothing. However, I believe that something larger has always existed, and our "big-bang" universe is merely one aspect of this larger entity. For you its "God", for me its just something natural that we haven't, and may never I'll admit, discover. But I suppose a religious person would insist that its impossible for the "mega-universe" to always have existed, it SIMPLY had to have come from somewhere. But I could make the same argument for your god. Of course, God always existed and thats true because we read it in a book, the bible in Christians case, and we believe it. Neither argument holds any more weight than the other, but I simply can't accept an intelligent creator with all good intentions. Logic goes against that idea.
