Hot Soup and Amy's Tomato Bisque


BENNINGTON -- I believe the Big Bang produced the hot soup of life as we know it.

But what was there before the Big Bang?

There had to be something there, right? Can we even conceive nothing.

Why the Bang?
How the Bang?
Who the Bang?

That's the trippiest aspect of the whole shebang.

Found this:


Once you think about that, an even more difficult question arises: What existed just before the big bang occurred? The question itself predates modern cosmology by at least 1,600 years. Fourth-century theologian St. Augustine wrestled with the nature of God before the creation of the universe. His answer? Time was part of God's creation, and there simply was no "before" that a deity could call home.


There was "no before" but there was a God? Jesus Fucking Christ, what a cop-out.

I mean, it's not going to ruin my night or anything.

Little could ruin my night after eating Amy's Tomato Bisque for dinner. You could serve it in a fancy bowl at a fancy chez and dollars to donuts says the fancy polloi goes Wow! In all seriousness, it makes you want to eat another bowl.

I suppose Amy's hot soup was part of God's creation, too.

And no, I didn't eat all 7 eggs.
