In the Beginning

I had to chuckle. No, it really was an "LOL," as my kids text. I read Hints of 'time before Big Bang,', in which we read, "A team of physicists has claimed that our view of the early Universe may contain the signature of a time before the Big Bang."

Okay, let me get this straight. The Cosmos as we know it did not explode into existance from nothing at the event we know as "The Big Bang." It exploded from something? What? The Cosmos-1?

There is this very basic, foundation of... what? sense versus nonsense? "Ex nihilo nihil fit." Out of nothing, nothing comes. It doesn't really matter how many big bangs there were. You either believe in an eternal self-existant cosmos or... No, we'l leave it at that. A cosmos that has existed for eternity past is so much safer.
