And also to you Charles.
Our insignificant bubble of space-time began once upon a time yes. Like all the infinite others from eternity. That’s not scepticism. It’s common sense. As you at least intuitively feel. There is no beginning of beginnings, no end of them. And there’s always been nothing and there’s always been something, it’s always been if !p then p, null > !null. God certainly isn’t necessary for any of it. He would be for a fairy tale single universe of therefore infinite complexity and He’d have to be infinitely stranger than He is if He merely grounds infinity from eternity, to do something different after eternity. And we’re not the one lucky winner in inhabiting a universe in which minds emerge on trillions of worlds. There are infinite. If anything can happen - i.e. a quantum perturbation in unstable absolute nothingness, then everything will, according to the prevenient laws of physics of course. To deny reality to create a gap isn’t faith. There is no gap. But there is faith.
