Creation ex nihilo in Metaphysics & Epistemology Posted 13 Jul 2013 · Report post The Big Bang theory is definitely something from nothing, and it is absurd.The Big Bang theory may be wrong, but it is definitely not "something from nothing": it does not assume an empty universe, that is zero mass/energy.Yes it would have begun from a little dense seed that exploded outward, but that is a something with no possible meaning. It's not just that this dense seed exploded outwards into space; space was also part of the seed, so there was "nothing" that existed outside the seed. Somehow this primordial seed was space while it simultaneously is expanding (into what?) into nothing. Never mind that expansion presupposes a measurable extent, but only entities can have measurable extents; there isn't a distance "around" existence, distances exist within existence.There isn't even an explainable reason why it happened. So yes, it's something from nothing, because it arbitrarily states that existence appeared where there was no existence.
