Proponents of atheism like Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawking and Sam Harris have become prominent public figures, thanks to their intelligence and debating skills, science knowledge and formidable public presences.
They are helping prompt the renewal of a much-needed public debate in the U.S. and Europe on the Theory of Everything (TOE) questions: Why is there something rather than nothing, why does the universe exist, why are human beings in it, and what happens to us after we die?

For folks who aren’t biochemists, the headline above likely makes no sense, but Reasons To Believe’s Fazale Rana, who is a biochemist, is also a solid write who knows how to make complexity understandable.
That’s fortunate for the rest of us because there is huge news on the biochemistry front that sounds like a potential paradigm shifter for our understanding of DNA.
It all has to do with interruptions. You know, that irritating legislative director in Rayburn or the haughty communications director over on the Senate side who won’t let you finish a sentence without interrupting you. And that has immense implications for the evolution vs. creation debate.

Pretty much everybody has heard of the Big Bang, the moment an estimated 4.6 billion years ago when the universe appeared out of, literally, nothing.
The Big Bang was followed in recent decades by the Big Debate among theologians, philosophers, scientists and talk show hosts on whether or not the existence of God was thereby proved.
So why does the headline say something about three more Big Bangs?

Something cannot be created from nothing. That’s why the material world either is eternal or had a beginning, which requires a beginner, AKA the “First Cause,” or “God.”
Not according to many materialists, however. They might say “quantum processes.” And they may have just gotten a potentially huge boost to their case, thanks to a team led by a Spanish scientist, according to The Daily Galaxy (TDG). Photo above by Greg Rakozy on Unsplash.

Have you ever wondered why is there something rather than nothing? Yes, it’s an esoteric question and not one any normal person is ever likely to think about without prompting.
So consider yourself prompted because it is an important question, one of the most important of all questions in fact. How important? Well, it’s more significant even than the question of whether a problem is solved if a congressman describes a solution but nobody on C-SPAN is listening?
Or, just to put it in the most personal of terms, why are you here rather than not here?
