Frank Turek Comments:
If current Big Bang cosmology is correct (and the evidence is very good that it is) then the entire space-time universe exploded into being out of nothing. Therefore, the Cause of the universe would seem to have these attributes:
Spaceless…because it created space
Timeless…because it created time
Immaterial…because it created matter
Powerful…because it created out of nothing
Intelligent…because the creation event and the universe was precisely designed
Personal…because it made a choice to convert a state of nothing into something (impersonal forces don’t make choices).
