In my own belief, I believe that God created the Universe becuase God has the ability to create something out of nothing. But of course this my understanding that I have gained through the Bible. Now I have heard of the Big Bang Theory and i personally believe in it because I believe this was the method that God used to create the Universe. My question is, outside of Christianity, how does Science and other Religions explain how matter was created in the first place? And do people believe that the matter was never created but existed for all time? All in all this is one question and mainly points to my first.
