    “We are asked by science to believe that the entire universe sprang from nothingness, and at a single point and for no discernible reason. This notion is the limit case for credulity. In other words, if you can believe this, you can believe anything.”

    Update

    We are asked by science to believe that the entire universe has always existed, although not in its current form

    In addition we are asked by science to believe that a state where NOTHING is in existence is a impossibility

    These are current (2019) theories and subject to update if / when new evidence arrives
