    The Big Bang only exists because we exist we are conscious beings , human consciousness was created out of the Big Bang so without us to observe it intelligently as conscious beings it would have no meaning , the latest theory is the universe is conscious !

        Nothing? That’s not what science pushes, how many times is Joe going to get this wrong? He’s had so many brilliant minds on his show and he still straw mans science. #lazy

            In Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass, there is a moment when the King meets Alice. He says to Alice, "Just look along the road and tell me if you can see." Alice replies "I see nobody on the road," to which the King humorously replies, "I only wish I had such eyes! To be able to see Nobody! And at a distance too!" This is a silly encounter. Its absurdity arises from mistakenly treating what logicians call quantifiers ⁠— words such as 'nobody,' 'everybody,' 'everyone' ⁠— as referring expressions, such as names. To say that nobody is on the road is not to say "There is somebody on the road! Let's call them 'nobody!'" Rather, it is to say that, of the relevant collection ⁠— the collection of all people ⁠— none of them are on the road. Similarly, when we say that nothing came before the so-called 'big bang,' we should not be misled by language into thinking that there was something before the big bang — an great void or chasm, perhaps. Rather, we should understand this statement to be asserting that for every state, context, or condition whatsoever, none of them obtain prior to the big bang. Thus, it is the denial of a prior state, not the affirmation of one. For very similar reasons, there is no reason to be mystified by the universe's alleged 'coming from nothing.' This is simply not a good way to think about the universe's origins. The phrase "coming from nothing" gives the impression that there was a state that obtained prior to the universe — a state in which there was not anything (at least not anything concrete) — which transformed into the universe. Why this is a mistaken way to conceptualize the universe's origins should be clear by now: there is no state that obtained prior to the universe which is picked out by the name "nothing" and, before there is any time, there are no processes or transformations. Rather, what exists is a moment of time prior to which there are no other moments.

              There was never a time when the universe was not already in existence, nor was there an antecedent state-of-affairs in which the universe was absent. An already existing universe is necessarily associated with all actual states-of-affairs and all actual moments of time. As the philosopher Adolf Grünbaum once observed, the universe did not begin in the same way a musical concert begins. In the latter case, you're seated, restless and fiddling with your program, when, suddenly, the music commences. In the former case — in the case of the big bang — there are no earlier instants of time and, hence, no moments when the big bang had not already occurred or when nothing at all existed. While you might no longer be puzzled by something's alleged 'coming from' nothing, you might still be puzzled by something's existing rather than nothing. Why is there a big bang at all rather than no big bang? Or, if the big bang turns out to be a part of a larger whole — say, a multiverse — why does this larger whole exist rather than nothing? The answer to this question, I am afraid, is that there is really no reason: it is what philosophers call a 'brute fact.' This might offend our rationalist sensibilities; however, modern science has shown those sensibilities to be mistaken. We now know about quantum phenomena: phenomena that seem to be governed by merely probabilistic, rather than deterministic or universal, causal laws. We know that there are physically possible quantum events which could occur but happen not to, the laws governing them, being consistent with both their occurrence and non-occurrence, providing no reason why this is the case. In a similar way, the universe's existence is neither necessary or impossible: it simply is, without further explanation.

                            no magic. We have tunnel vision because of our superstitions. Ever wonder why we always think something is unique when we first discover it? Its because of childhood stories and logic structure around one supreme being. Our universe is not unique. New universes are being created even within our universe. Infinite number of universes and infinite number of big bangs. Religious freaks, like two year-old children, will take a line of questioning to the absurd, thinking its some kind of game. Even when we answer this new absurd question, they will then say, "well who makes all the universes"? If you have not grasped the absurdity, let me explain. We are insignificant in the timeline of earth. Our planet is so insignificant in our galaxy. Our galaxy is so insignificant in our universe. Our universe is so insignificant in the multiverse. You think that a god created all this just for our small planet and our short history? What an absurd thought.

                                    @Official Spekter maybe in elementary school where the teachers didn't know the subject. My college physics, astronomy, and cosmology professors would never claim it came from 'nothing' because, one, that's not part of the model, two, that would be an argument from ignorance fallacy that no legitimate scientist wants to commit, three, physicists have a different interpretation on what most people consider 'nothing' because in quantum mechanics, even empty space has a lot happening so there is never 'nothing' in our world as the layman thinks of it

                                  Just because we don't know how something happened doesn't mean it was magic. Or god. Or anything supernatural for that matter. We may not ever know. It still won't mean anything like that. The religious people are losing gaps to shove their gods into.

                                                  'HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS'

                                                  Before 'Time', all the matter in the universe was arranged in such perfect order and squashed into the size of a pea.
                                                  Then, the so called 'Big bang' happened some 14.5 billion years ago
                                                  The universe cooled and then got to a point which created your home planet called 'Earth'.
                                                  When you are born on planet Earth, your 'TIME' begins and you experience human consciousness.
                                                  When you die your consciousness stops but the universe will continue to expand and will become more 'dis-ordered'.
                                                  Billions of years will pass and the universe will ultimately reach its MEP or 'Maximum Expansion Point.
                                                  After the MEP the universe will then start to contract.
                                                  Billions of years will pass until all the matter will rearrange and organise itself back to perfect order, to how it was at the very beginning.
                                                  Then, Inflation, or the 'BIG BANG' will occur again.
                                                  During this whole cycle, you STILL have no concept of time, no concept of the billions upon billions of years that had passed because you are 'Dead'...
                                                  As the universe inflates again, the universe will ultimately RE -create planet Earth, and you are Reborn AGAIN.
                                                  Your 'Time' and whole experience repeats itself forever and ever through an endless cycle of births and deaths as 'YOU'.
                                                  Nothing changes.
                                                  'YOU' are 'YOU' for eternity...
                                                  So, If this is our 'FIRST TIME', or first experience on planet Earth in this fundamental universe, before an endless cycle of being 'YOU', then we should ALL do our absolute best and live by the golden rule and be nice to one another.
                                                  Be happy, live life peacefully and experience as much as possible with your life, because IF this our very first experience of consciousness in this infinate universe, then make it a loving one, since every cycle and experience that will follow of 'YOU' will carry on forever.
                                                  'The universe is an infinite heartbeat of the 'Godforce'.
                                                  As soon as you die, you are reborn as 'YOU' in the blink of an eye'.
                                                  'You ARE' the universe.

                                                          I think Rogan has a distortion of what the big bang is: The big bang means we literally can't know (as of now) what there was before the big bang. But for all anyone knows including lot's of scientists, there's billions of other universes with other big bangs. And our own universe, there was matter before the big bang (that's what it came out of). If there was literally NOTHING before the big bang, no matter, no time, no space, then there would always be NOTHING. It's like humans need a beginning and need to know where everything came from. Here's a news flash: "Matter" exists, it's always existed, it always will exist.

                                                              Just because you don't know today how something in the past happened, doesn't mean it is unknowable. Many things we know today and take for granted were at one time also considered unknowable. The only reason we go in these circles is that some people think that if science is true, then their faith can't be true. This conception is false and unnecessary.

Here I don't think he deserves criticism for espousing this idea, since it's a serious enough idea. But he worded it about as clumsily as he possibly could have on Twitter, so I may still give him some flak for that.

God/magic has been losing ground to science for thousands of years. Every time science cannot immediately explain something, there are people trying to say, "Well God/magic did it." Only for sometime later, after study, an explanation is developed through science.
