    What exists beyond the universe? What exists before the big bang? Did the big bang actually happen?

    According to science, yes it did. According to most religion, no it did not.

    Now, the simple answer to what is outside the universe is nothing. There is literally a point in the universe where it just stops. No stars, nothing. Just empty blackness. But the universe is constantly expanding.

    Like Sarge said, science says it does, however most religious accounts (i.e. the Bible) gives much proof against it. When you think about it, it is hard to believe in a way. For example, after it would've happened, how were humans created? How was everything else created? It couldn't just have suddenly been there...

    I'm not sure there's a place where it stops...I always assumed it just goes on forever and ever, in a kind of nonbelievable way.

    Yes, it just stops. However, that stopping point is always moving outward because of expansion

    You sound so sure, there...you didn't take a trip to the stopping point, did you? :p

    Ah...so your astronomy teacher was the one that visited it...

    Next time he goes, have him send me a postcard. :p

    Why are so sure it doesn't end? Astronomers have sent satellites that have confirmed there is in fact a point at which space ends. But It expands so rapidly, and space is already huge enough as it is, that it would be impossible for humans to reach to reach it. Stars give off light. Satellites are able to pick up on said light. Eventually, there is a point where no light is produced. Therefore, there are no stars to produce light. As far as we can tell, the black nothingness beyond the universe goes on forever.

    Don't get into scientific conversations with me. You know I can't joke when it comes to science :p

    I loved astronomy class in school. Mainly when we got to visit the planetarium at The Natural History Museum. Seeing the universe is a very humbling experience. :)

    Plus The Natural History Museum has the Human Origins exhibit with video clips of scientists talking about how they reconcile science and faith.

    You know... I think I'm sensing a conspiracy here, and perhaps heralde might can enlighten me since she seems to know a lot about double-standards (and I consider her something of a modern-day feminist, lol).

    As I've ranted about many times before, when I was a kid, we boys could not wait to sprout hair on our chests because hairy chests were considered impressive and manly, but then by the time we reached that age, suddenly just the opposite is considered impressive, and now it's that silky, smooth, hairless look that apparently women want... now then, here's what I'm starting to wonder... I know the media is partly to blame, since they hold up hairless men almost as much as they do size-0 stick figure women, but I also can't help but wonder if perhaps part of it too is women actually trying to get back at men for making them shave certain areas such as their armpits and legs? Because at the same time, I've also noticed recently, more and more women are outright refusing to shave their legs in almost bra-burning fashion... so I mean, really, conspiracy or what? The way I'm starting to see it is pretty much women saying to men, "You always expect us to shave our body hair, why can't you shave your body hair too? And while we're at it, you guys don't necessarily HAVE to shave your legs, so why should we?"

    Ew...I really don't like that whole clean shaven, pretty boy, need to remove every piece of hair from your body look. Maybe not a full on beard, but some scruff is nice. Not a fan mustaches though...But I also think long hair on a guy is sexy XD

    Good point. By the way, I heard you lost your sanity. Sorry for your loss. When's the funeral?
