100% cool NEUFER
If there is a God and if there is a heaven and I I were to go there when I die please God let there be a 1970's and 80's section but knowing how things usually go for me reincarnation will be the next E-ticket and knowing my dumb luck I'd probably come back as myself.
I've come to the conclusion that when i said i wanted to be somebody when i grew up i probably should have been more specific

I think that the universe may have appeared just like how a virtual particle appears and then disappears, except on a much grander scale.

Let's James Web Telescope speak. Maybe it will provide us big surprises

I think that the Big Bang did not start from a point
of infinite density, but it arose from a large amount
of cold, compact and high density matter.
Before the Big Bang there was matter.
But, what caused this explosion?
Possibly a series nuclear fission reaction, generated
the Big Bang

Right now, we don't even know if the Big Bang required a cause. But we do know that it didn't involve any nuclear processes, because at the time of the Big Bang, and for a discrete length of time after that, there were no atomic particles.
