This is my first post here and first time visiting here as a non-guest user so this may be in the wrong spot. Is the first two laws of Thermodynamics contradicting? I will try to explain the question from my rather uneducated viewpoint: Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transferred. This seems to point towards Energy being always in existence. Now according to (my understanding of) the BBT energy came into existence in first moments of the universe, which implies it has an age. Meaning Energy was created and has not been infinitely in existence. How does physics reconcile this, or am I just plain wrong? Also if it doesn't have an age and it's always been in the universe then wouldn't that make it a contradiction to the second law in which it would become infinitely dilute?
