Human evolution; our complex speech mechanism (Introduction)

DAVID: The universe started with a Big Bang. Are the first living cells a 'big bang' start for life?

dhw: I’m not sure if the universe started with a Big Bang, but it’s nice that you’re also looking for parallels.

DAVID: At least we are looking at two of the most major starts of all starts. Can you think of a third?

dhw: The start of our solar system and Planet Earth was pretty major for you and me, but an eternal and infinite universe could have had an infinite number of major starts.

DAVID: Up to this point we were talking about possibilities with significant evidence. The eternal and infinite universe is pure hypothesis and without a smidgen of evidence.

Fair comment. I should have stuck to our solar system and planet. Apologies for taking us off onto a different track. An interesting one, though. One has to ask: what was there before the Big Bang, if it ever happened? Nothing at all is also pure hypothesis, as is an eternal mind without a beginning. There is no way we shall ever know, unless your pure hypothesis is correct and your God reveals himself!
