I'm sure Christian/Moslem/Jewish people out there will say something like "None of them were first. GAWWWWWWWWWWD wuz!" True, true; but then which did 'GAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWD' create first? And which one (Energy or Matter) IS GAWWWWWWWWWWWWWD?

science says that matter and energy cannot be created or destroyed, they just change form. from one form to another. who says there ever was a time when there was nothing. why can't the universe just have always existed, in one form or another.

Exactly. I need not add anything else. You said it perfectly.

The Owners say so, because if a thing is not produced then one cannot buy it, if one cannot buy it then one cannot own it, if one cannot own it then one cannot sell it, if one cannot sell it then one cannot re-sell it ... and the free-market crumbles! Mwa--ah--ah--

if you don't have the seed you can't grow it. but the seed can't come from nowhere. the seed comes from a different plant. that grew from another seed from another plant. there was never a time of nothing.

I guess they have both co-existed from the beginning of the Universe and beyond that. As for God, he could not have been first, he has only been around for 10.000 years. The Universe is much older than that.

Woo-Hooo! See? it's fun to get stuck in that whole 'linear-time'-construct sometimes! lol (that is to say--God 'existing outside time'--God only just stuck `s face in on our universe a few thousand years ago ... (wait a minute, am I saying there was existence before God? Maybe! Oh, what terrible fun!)
