Call me silly, but I am stuck on one question that I can't quite my head around. How did the universe start? I know the accepted theory is the big bang, but I have a problem with that for one simple reason. No matter how small the universe started out in the beginning, it was still something that took up space......but.....if space was there already, then the universe was already there??!! anyone else understand what I mean?? please help me with this somebody, as I'm really stuck on this seems so simple chicken and the egg syndrome!! Thanks Rev. JeffD.
