### Everything

Why we have a world to live in? A universe. What is the universe? Who created everything? Why nothing is something? Is time linear? Is... I have lots of questions...

I love this site! It's full of people like me

2. An universe is one continuous fabric of space-time.
3. Define everything. Also tell me how did you figure out that everything was created?
4. nothing is not something
5. With respect to what? The concept of time varies from observer to observer.

### Re: Everything

2. An universe is one continuous fabric of space-time.
Define what is a "theory". Einstein said that the universe is one continuous fabric of space-time, what if it is not?

3. Define everything. Also tell me how did you figure out that everything was created.
Everything is something everything... I didn't figure out that everything was created. Where does energy come from if it can't be created nor destroyed?

4. Nothing is indeed something.
You can't have nothing without something. You can't have darkness without light.

5. With respect to what? The concept of time varies from observer to observer.
Time is "change" Time is create by humans. I believe time is not fundamental but rather an illusion.
That's why I asked is time linear?

### Re: Everything

So, the answer to OP's question is like this:

Who created everything?
The creator of all things.

Ofcourse, this is true. But again, that is rather circular, please revise your definition.

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

### Re: Everything

When we discuss him we will always be led to what you call circular definitions. That is why he is not to be discussed. That is why we can consider it an axiom. If you remember this is what I said is the popular answer.

### Re: Everything

The popular answer assumes one more thing. You do not know?

### Re: Everything

Know then thyself, presume not God to scan; The proper study of mankind is man.

When St. Thomas Aquinas was asked what was God doing before he created the universe, he quickly answered creating hell for people who ask such questions.

But how does any of what we have been posting exemplify or detract from the viewpoint that I stated it would be the most popular answer?

I think the question was answered right there.

### Re: Everything

I believe in a powerful (yet non-omnipotent) intelligent version of God who created everything (except himself). But since this is only based on my belief, I can't endorse this to the OP.

I've not cited theory anywhere. It is out of context. What it is not is a hypothetical question

3. Define everything. Also tell me how did you figure out that everything was created.
Everything is something everything... I didn't figure out that everything was created. Where does energy come from if it can't be created nor destroyed?

4. Nothing is indeed something.
You can't have nothing without something. You can't have darkness without light.

Ofcourse we can have nothing. Without something, we would not know that it is nothing. But that does not mean it does not exist.
Your question does not make sense.

5. With respect to what? The concept of time varies from observer to observer.
Time is "change" Time is create by humans. I believe time is not fundamental but rather an illusion.
That's why I asked is time linear?

Something is linear when it, plotted with respect to some other phenomenon follows an equation of the form mx + c.
What are you plotting time to.

### Re: Everything

Before what? Are you talking about the following question:

what was God doing before he created the universe?

If so:
