I've got a question, which possibly you guys could answer. Now I'm not a scientist and I do figure there is a solution for this somewhere, because I couldn't possibly have been the first to think of it. I'll try to keep it short...

Now, many believe the universe has existed forever, that is, that it is eternal, but don't nuclear reactions simply make this impossible?
The simple equation we all know from middle school, E=MC^2 means energy released by a nuclear reaction is equal to the mass lost (the one exception to where matter is lost) times the speed of light squared. Now, if matter can, and is lost, doesn't that mean that if the universe existed forever, there would no longer be any matter? Or at very least, nuclear reactions would have to stop, wouldn't it?

The universe is constantly expanding showing signs of coming from a single point. So assuming that the universe has always been there doesn't make sense with that observation.
