Description

The question remains: if the universe could really come from nothing, then why can't Beethoven or Bhagat Singh pop out of nowhere? If NOTHING created the universe, if really NO-THING created the universe then why the preference for universe(s) alone? Why can't anything and everything appear out of nowhere, from nowhere, and for no reason? How can the lack-of-anything (nothing) have any preference? What are the three solid reasons to say something cannot come from nothing (or that everything that begins to exist has a cause)? Join us to find out.
