Think everything in the universe has always existed?
You can believe whatever you want but you might be going against “almost everybody”.
Stephen Hawking, the very popular and immensely respected astronomer from Cambridge University, agrees that this is the consensus. He says,
“Almost everyone believes that the universe, and time itself, had a beginning.”
[Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose, The Nature of Space and Time, The Isaac Newton Institute Series of Lectures (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1996), p. 20.]
So, what caused it?
Or a loving God who gives perfect meaning to everyting that is, that was, and that will ever be?
