How is there actually an existence?

You exist because you can, if you couldn't exist you wouldn't.
The universe has been doing things for 14~ billion years, most things that it would allow to happen have happened (I assume).
But humans themselves are a result of a million or so years of social evolution, generation to generation we evolve our methods of thinking

I'm pretty sure our brains can't comprehend the answer. I'll leave it at that.

Well, if we're to expect everything to fall into place like this

We may never know.

Existence will go only as far as we can expect.

How do you know anything exists in the first place? This could all be a lie for all we know.

That'd explain why the footage NASA sends of space looks like some kid spent an hour on after effects.

"What if you trace back to before the big bang? What would we find? How?"

We don't know and until we have a means of investigating that we can't know which makes it pointless to speculate on the question.

Yeah it's extremely entertaining. I have no opinion either way, as it doesn't matter when it comes down to it. The stuff people come up with though makes for some fun. I like it.

That makes sense y'know? Whoever created the universe is just trolling us. And since they never thought we'd get off this rock in the first place they made everything else kinda blurry and ill drawn. They also made atoms and electrons all fuzzy because who the fuck would care about looking at those?

Then one day...

"Oh fuck would you look at that, humans have found out that atoms are fuzzy and lo-rez!"
"Damn it! I told you we had to work in HD but you were like NOOOOO, who will ever notice... "
"Well, may I be... they actually put together a working theory of fuzziness! They call it Quantum Mechanics or something."
"Oh, you get off this time..."

And then another time...

"OH SHIT! Didn't notice this one until now! They sent a probe to PLUTO!"
"Fucking Pluto? IT'S NOT EVEN A PLANET! WHY WOULD THEY SEND A PROBE THERE? It's like a hunk of rock and ice in the middle of NOTHING!"
"I don't know man! I left that shit in wireframe! I'm slapping together a texture quickly so maybe they won't notice."
"Hurry up, it's coming!"
"Done! It's up and running."
"..."
"..."
"Say, why is there a huge HEART on that texture again?"
"...I made it by ripping one of my smartphone's smileys."

Does this make your brain feel strange like mine?


Yes...It does. I've always felt the same way as You...If there was a "Big Bang", what created the "Big Bang"? And further, and further back. And so on and so forth.

In the End, it's absolutely maddening. And I will forever refuse to believe that, (and I apologize beforehand) a "God" that would communicate with Desert dwellers thousands of Years ago would not choose to further commune with the very same Race Years into the Future who have only grown more and more self aware. So I have absolutely no clue. People will continue to tell You to "Just not think about about it"...or..."You're thinking too much"...Why? Because I want to know why I'm here? Jargon.

Hey there,

As I read your questions it seemed you were sincere in your questions and thus I thought I'd take it upon myself to try to answer your questions. I had these questions too and as I began my quest for my answers and truth this is what I found. I believe you need to be open minded and follow the evidence to the conclusion whether if that is God or not.

So basically you asked why does the universe exist? Why does anything exist at all?

This is the cosmological argument by Dr. William Lane Craig which I believe answers that question adequately.


1. Everything that exists has an explanation of its existence, either in the necessity of its own nature or in an external cause.

2. If the universe has an explanation of it's existence, that explanation is God.

3. The universe exists.

4. Therefore, the universe has an explanation of its existence.

Basically the argument is saying that God is the reason the universe exists. As you have pointed out before, how can something come from nothing? It's pretty simple as everyone should agree that nothing comes from nothing. If we trace the universe back to it's origin and let's say there was nothing. It's impossible for the universe to come into being from nothing. There has to be something, and basically that's God.

Let's take the other consideration. Let's say the universe is infinite. If it is infinite or eternal why are we still expanding? According the thermodynamic laws the universe is trying to reach equilibrium. If it has infinite time, how come the universe hasn't reached equilibrium yet? Or if the universe was already at a point of equilibrium then why did it change? Why did the big bang occur? An infinite universe is most likely not probable. Also, current astrological evidence points the universe having a finite beginning.

I can't answer this stuff very well but I know these guys can.

I hope this help
