I'm assuming you believe the universe has been around forever. Try imagining a past of infinite duration, then explain how our present time came to be. I don't see how the present can ever be reached from an infinite past, since it would take forever to reach the present.

My point? If the universe is "self contained", and requires no external god, and our law of conservation still applies, then time must have existed for infinite. Then the above question comes into play. If it's true that time could not have existed forever, then maybe our universe was created at some point. Then I wouldn't understand how our laws just appeared from nothing, along with matter, energy, etc.
