Primarily focusing on Atheists, what is your explanation to how we exist, how our world exists and how the Universe came about?

Hmm... the universe? Either the Big Bang or the Matrix.
If it had been life on Earth, I’d range further with my oddities if possible belief. Aliens, a superior race of humans breading with us or even pure luck.
But all theories...as I was not there at the time to know... 😩

I don't really care to be honest. It doesn't have any real impact on my lived experience.

1. Zero sum game. Mass was gained by the creation of dark matter. I think Penrose mentioned this.
2. The "micro-universe" which was expanded by the big bang might have been a pre-existing universe. The particles that existed on our scale might have been considered galaxies in the Old Universe. This allows an infinite series; no "beginning". I heard Krauss mentioned this when I was a 16yo hardcore atheist on YouTube.
3. Crunch and inflation, infinite series without a beginning.

I doubt we will know, but I still find myself thinking just how paradoxical it is that an existence can derive from nothing.

The Big Crunch theory, and subsequently followed by the Big Bang.

Yeah this ****, twists my mind too. Everything has to come from somewhere but then there has to be a point where somewhere didn't exist. And how did that somewhere come into existence from a place of nowhere.

FFS I wish I'd never seen this thread!!
