I just finished watching the first episode of the Discovery Channel series Curiosity; this first episode begged the question "Did God Create The Universe". I love this episode with Stephen Hawkings as the host. However, I'm a bit confused towards the end, I'm no brainiac so I was wondering if you guys could shed some light as to the conclusion of the episode. Conclusion(I think, correct me if I'm wrong): The Universe consist of matter, energy (whom both are the same) and space. For the Universe to be created there had to be negative energy to balance out positive energy, all the positive energy is what we now call the Universe and all of the negative energy is now space. There was no creator of the Universe because before the Big Bang the Universe was pretty much a Black Hole and there is no time in a Black Hole which means there was no time for a "creator" to create the Universe. My question (I might have to watch the episode two more times lol) is what happened in the Black Hole to create the BIG BANG? Another question: If Energy is made out of Photons and in the subatomic level Photons can magically appear and disappear and reappear again, was that the case of the Big Bang? Sorry I feel like I'm confusing myself.
