Nothing was around before the origin of the universe: Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking explained situation before Big Bang

To answer what happened before the Big Bang, Hawking took a so-called Euclidian approach to quantum gravity to describe the beginning of the universe. Furthermore, we do mean it when we say brainteaser-Hawking's clarification incorporates this brilliant line: "Standard continuous is supplanted by fanciful time, which carries on like a fourth bearing of room".

"The universe will evolve from the Big Bang, completely independently of what it was like before", Hawking said on his website.

Some scientists believe the Big Bang is part of an infinite loop of expansion and contraction cycles of the universe. Hawking's answer? Nothing, he explained. Just as it is possible to travel all around the Earth's surface without encountering any edge, the Big Bang would not be the beginning of space-time anymore than on Earth the North Pole would represent the beginning of the surface of the earth. Just as there is nothing south of a southernmost point, time cannot exist before the Big Bang. Since there is no concrete evidence about what was around "nothing" where nothing is actually something that was there before the Big Bang. The ordinary real time as we know now shrinks infinitely as the universe becomes ever smaller but never reaches a definable starting point.

Now, the British physicist says, that there was nothing around before the Big Bang.

It's the central question posed to atheists around the world: "If there's no God, then how did the universe begin?"

During one of his lectures, Hawking had stated that there are no observable consequences from what occurred before the Big Bang. "Rewind far enough (about 13.8 billion years), and the whole universe will shrink to the size of a single atom", said Hawking.

'At a singularity, all the laws of physics would have broken down.

The president of Reasons to Believe also told CP that the model that Hawking is proposing for the origins of the Universe is problematic in light of modern astronomical observations. "There is nothing south of the South Pole, so there was nothing around before the Big Bang".
