As an Atheist I was drawn to this video simply because of the title, obviously. But I knew before even watching it that I had an answer to the question presented, although it may not satisfy the average religious person. What caused the Big Bang? I don`t know, or should I say we don`t know. Religious people, whether they be Christian, Muslim, Hindu, or any of the other minor ones "believe" that a God created everything they know and see, specifically their God. It is a scientific fact that we as humans have no idea how the Universe got here or how it came to be, but religious people jump to conclusions and proclaim that a man with immense power crafted everything in the Universe. They are scared to say "I don`t know," and it gives them comfort to think that they know how it all came to be. Rational and open minded people on the other hand embrace that phrase because it leads to more questions and in theory, more amazing answers. Here is my question to religious people: If you claim that your God had infinite intelligence and power to create the Universe so that we as humans could thrive as a species, instead of creating 500 billion galaxies of hostile space, why not create endless lightyears of land so people could flourish?

Where did GOD come from and WHY? - He's an arrogant, murdering, petty, irrational, needy, pouting child. If He was a human being, God would be the most repulsive monster who ever lived. The authors of that confusing piece of fiction picked the worst possible hero. - What's the easiest way to become an atheist? READ THE BIBLE!

Where did the universe come from? As far as we know, 14 billion years ago there was a reaction which caused gasses to eventually over a very long time become the galaxies we see today.  Why? For no reason whatsoever, why does the Earth spin around the Sun? Because the laws of physics dictate as such, for no other reason.   When people didn't know that the Earth orbited the sun they thought that some higher power was in control of this.  We know now why the sun goes up and down everyday.  We may not know exactly what caused the Big Bang, but saying "we don't know, ergo God" is as fallacious as it was to think a god made the sun go up and down everyday 2000 years ago.

"We don't know, yet" is the most reasonable stance.

thats a loaded question. the correct question would be how our universe came to be. big bang is the answer. what happened before that is unknown.  the thing is, if we dont know something, we cant start making shit up (god). thats dishonest and moronic.

There was a time when people didn't know why the sky is blue. That didn't automatically mean God is making the sky blue. It meant that we didn't have the scientific knowledge at the time to figure it out. We also don't have the knowledge at this time to say what existed before the universe. That doesn't mean GOD! The argument of "I don't know so GOD!" is really stupid.

"I have a very simple question... where did the universe come from, and why?". You might want to look up the definition of 'simple'.

You can find your answer in: Cosmos, a space time odyssey.  Or in the NY planetarium: http://www.amnh.org/our-research/hayden-planetarium Also in any Neil deGrass Tyson videos in YouTube, or Laurence Krauss lectures.  If you need information about evolution go to the Smithsonian:  http://humanorigins.si.edu/ Every major museum in every country in the world have plenty of information (except Ken Ham's creationist joke museum) Also in the most prestigious world universities The only people that won't give you the true answer will be religion organizations, they will tell you that god is the answer, because is easy, cost nothing, they don't need to prove anything, they will tell you is faith, or revelation, or a miracle. They want you to believe in them because they need followers, followers that give them money, not for expensive serious research, they ask you for money for their ridiculous story. They will tell you that there is a heaven, angels and a lot of nice magic stuff. But at the end is all about money for nothing. And all what they offer you will get it when you die, what a con work. And they will fill you with guilty and sin so they can control you. They will take your freedom and brainwash you. I'm an atheist, I don't follow anyone that try to tell me a magic story, there have been plenty of people in the history of the world that make a living selling magic stories. I don't follow them. I go to museums, universities, and I talk with people that do serious research. I study the evidence and the facts, and make my mind. I'm a free thinker, I don't believe anything on faith (believe without evidence) The religious people invented that faith was a virtue, but is not, faith means not thinking, not using your brain. Watch a video of a science class and watch a video like "Jesus camp". Reason and common sense will give you the answer.

"We don't know." We don't pretend to have an answer. Isn't it strange how every religion's creation story is "Truth" yet conflicting with all the others?
