I'm writing about Allen N. Wollscheidt's thoughtful letter: "More questions to answers" (11-01-05). It seems to me that there are a lot more questions than answers.
If a single agency created the universe, who or what created this single agency? What did this single agency do before it created the universe? Where did this single agency get the material to create the universe?
Why can the universe not have existed forever if the creator of the universe can exist forever? Could it be that the "Big Bang" was not really the beginning, but rather just one cycle in a series of endless cycles?
I believe that there are about 200 billion stars in our medium-sized galaxy known as the Milky Way and that there are about 400 billion galaxies in the known universe (plus or minus a few hundred or a few thousand trillion).
The Earth is like one grain of sand upon all the beaches of the world.
Was the universe created for one of the inhabitants of just one of those grains of sand?
