Something From Nothing

Christians often say You can’t get something from nothing. They make an exception, of course, for god, but oddly not for the universe which contains god. Their science is over a century out of date. That is their intuition, but at the quantum level, and near black holes, matter pops in and out of existence all the time. Intuition honed here on earth fails at the large and small scales. It fails at super high and super low temperatures. It fails at tiny and huge time scales. Human intuition has no experience outside the narrow temperate Goldilocks conditions of earth. It is arrogant to try to use your petty intuition to tell the universe what is possible.
