However, where did what we evolved came from? Oh? The Big Bang? Or w/e nonsense, it all boils down to this --- Where did what come from? Eventually it boils down to something had to be here forever. Now, either way you can say the Universe and particles or some sort of BS have been around forever. But think for a second, can you comprehend that? That particles were around forever. Where did those particles come from? No where?
To us humans, the comprehension of forever is impossible. If there is an all knowing god or series of gods that know everything, then it/they should know what "forever" means.
To us, forever is "a fucking long time." Billions of years is not forever. Trillions of years is not forever. 13.75 billion years (the estimated age of the universe) a damn long time, but it is not forever. Forever implies that time has been extended for an infinite amount of time. Those that have taken calculus may have learned that infinity is something that has no limit. The universe (to my knowledge, correct me if I am wrong) has known limits.
somewhat related quote here:
There are known knowns; there are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns; that is to say there are things that, we now know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns – there are things we do not know we don't know.
Therefore, it should not be possible for the universe to exist "forever."
Please do understand that the universe has not been around "forever" per quod I have given reason for, but rather the universe has been around since the beginning of time as we know it.
Science is the imperfect human pursuit for truth in everything including "the Universe and particles or some sort of BS have been around forever."
Scientists are hard at work in finding the truth. The questions are still being answered.
