35. of course there was time before the big bang
pardon for the difficulty in getting these ideas across, but it does seem coherent to me....

imho, there are two things that can not be changed.

time always was/is/will be. it never started and will never stop. (hence, no "creator". therefore, no "in the beginning", nor "at the end of time"... that pretty much takes care of those two issues...)

if there was a big bang from a mass of everything in the "universe", until it blew it just sat there, biding its "time", until it DID blow.

(my opinion is that there have been, and will be, an infinite number of "big bangs" occurring PRIMARILY because time always has been, and always will be, and space is infinite.

that is the other thing. the second thing that can not change is that the universe never ends.

its like counting. you can't count to the highest number. it is simply impossible.

space continues into infinity. (the old question arises... what do you find when you get to the end of the universe?)

that is why there are an infinite number of big bangs happening simultaneously/overlapping, throughout the "universe", which has no boundaries.

a side affect?

there were two reasons religions were invented.

to explain these concepts that it is hard to wrap our brains around...

and manipulation of people BECAUSE of our inability to grasp certain concepts.

it seems pretty simple to me.
