With any of these theories the where, what, why is never answered. Where did the strings of energy come from? Why do they exist? What caused the existence?

Whenever we go to the frontiers of scientific knowledge, we find a lot of things we don't understand. This has always been true and always will be. (You can quote me on that.)

You may find, as I do, that it sometimes takes courage to say "I don't know."

Everybody has a right to speculate what lies beyond the current frontier. But if anyone wants their speculations to be considered scientific knowledge, they have to show that their new idea fits objectively known data and enables testable predictions.

Science does not claim to have all of the answers. Faith is useful to many people. Just don't call it science.

Cheers.
