This is something that has always puzzled me. A teacher once asked me to think of how sceptics might think of god. I suggested it might be that they use god where science has not come up with answers. The teacher then explained about the Big Bang, however I wanted to go further than this. For a Big Bang to happen something must already have been there, so where did that come from? When did time and space start? And if the universe is expanding what is it expanding into? I would love Stephen Hawking to explain this, but until then I am left with the mysteries of time and space! (see also Trip - The Mysteries Of Time And Space Part Two).

The Mysteries Of Time And Space

If there ever was an existence,
Be it man or god or substance,
Then that itself would be a travesty.
For two questions should be asked,
And the querent need not a scholar be;
What was there before this existence?
And what lies beyond its bounds?
Two simple questions surely,
Yet minds greater than our own have pondered their depths.
No solution has been found,
Nor is one likely to be shown to mortal men.
It is written that in death shall come enlightenment,
And this may be,
But one thing troubles the seeker still;
Should promises be broken,
And the prophesies of the Lords of Life be based on lies,
Then I would die in darkness,
The mysteries of time and space would remain,
And I would be disappointed.

Your many times I have thought and argued the same thing. And your poem. provokes much and God, in most cases, two very, very separate things.
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo
Andy is right as time is a concept, neither real nor unreal. However, space is a reality, the area between two points as a measurement. As for science and God they are two separate entities. Decisions for each to make. Though provoking piece...

The ancient questions.
As a kid I'd fall asleep wondering the same, blowing my mind.
The only thing that was a bit of a catalyst was when I found out that time is man made, a point to point reference. So I realised that time is an imaginary concept and does not exist. Time does not exist, other than as a measurement. But ask a scientist to explain, love, the pleasure of music and most of all, Why hasn't Arsenal won a trophy in 5 yrs.
