E24 Why Is There Something Rather Than Nothing?
"Even if there was nothing, you still wouldn't be satisfied!"
Today, most scientists agree that the universe began with the "Big Bang". But why did the Big Bang occur in the first place? What gave rise to the conditions required for the Big Bang to kickstart our universe? Why is there something rather than nothing?
When compared with the possibility of a silent, empty, nothingness, the existence of a universe as rich and expansive as ours seems staggering. Surely it would have been much simpler for there to have just been nothingness.
In this episode, we'll look at the best theories put forward by scientists, religious thinkers, and philosophers, as to why anything exists at all.
