Hello! I'm assuming the model of the Big Bang Theory and I'm asking specifically about the 'moment' of creation; I'm in no way well-versed in this; so please be gentle : * Are the laws of physics applicable to the beginning on the universe? * The Law of Conservation will not apply for this moment, would it? Matter and energy cannot be destroyed or created ONLY 'within' the universe, am I correct? * Does Entropy dictate that the universe couldn't have existed infinitely? And finally, what are some formidable challenges and alternatives to the Big Bang Theory? EDIT : Is the 'moment of creation' termed as the 'singularity? My apologies if these questions have already been answered, I'm having trouble navigating through the website. It's probably my wireless going haywire. =( If you could provide me with links to the answers, that would be great, thanks! Thank you!
