I found this article that talks about being able to see what the universe was like before the “Big Bang.”
Its an interesting article (though some of it was way over my head). Its mostly some guys opinion.
Two of my favorite parts:
The Big Bang is often thought as the start of everything, including time, making any questions about what happened during it or beforehand nonsensical. Recently scientists have instead suggested the Big Bang might have just been the explosive beginning of the current era of the universe, hinting at a mysterious past.
“The eternal recurrence of absolutely identical universes would seem to be prevented by the apparent existence of an intrinsic cosmic forgetfulness,” he added.
I think you can use an article like this to start discussion about – creation, God being eternal, Can we ever know what it was like before Gen. 1?, the connection b/w science and the Bible, or time/eternity.
I like knowing that even the universe forgets things every once and awhile.
