"If one pursues the
if-you-can`t-see-it-or-poke-a-stick-at-it-it-doesn`t-exist paradigm back through
time to the beginning, what you are left with is
NOTHING+CHANCE=EVERYTHING." Bzrd.

That seemed like a demonstration of the "straw man" argument. It looks to me that you fabricated your own weak representation of an opposing argument to prove your point. I can`t speak for the other incorrigable materialists out there, but i don`t recall ever proposing that equation.

At any rate, through what basis can you elimate the possibility that there was no beginning? that the universe is actually infinite, and the big bang event was only a local occurance?

Furthermore, on what evidence do you base the universe coming to an end? The universe will almost absolutely continue without us.

P.S. You get extra points for not citing the bible.
