So there was nothing before the Big Bang. You expect me to believe that the initial condition that the entire universe expanded from just popped into existence? That's almost as ridicules as the idea that some omnipotent being created it all.

Edit: Dammit! stop posting while I'm typing!

How about this model. You know the laws of thermodynamics? The ones important to my argument, according to wikipedia.
1. "Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only change forms." (you can't get out of the game)
2. "The entropy of an isolated system not in equilibrium will tend to increase over time, approaching a maximum value at equilibrium." (you can't break even, you can't win)

This isn't a nihlist coincidence. The way humans create memories, there is more entropy afterwords than before; we perceive the increase of entropy as time.

If your model of spacetime is spheroid instead of linear, than the spot with least entropy is the big bang, and most the big crunch, the way we perceive time.

Stephen Hawking says the math checks out.

Now, I don't know why there would be space time, but this helps explain how there was nothing before it. Since we wouldn't be here to remark on it's absence, I guess that's good enough.

Hey, the comic seems to be updating kind of regularly. Maybe we should vote to spread the word.
