Why is there something instead of nothing? In other words: Why does the universe exist (and why are we in it)?

Congratulations you've just managed to ask "the question".
Not sure what kind of replies you're expecting here though (bearing in mind earths greatest minds have been trying to figure this question out since the beginning of human history).

At last a question worthy of the great intellectuals who make up this forum. The universe exists because something had to happen with all the energy and matter that was leftover after the collapse of the previous universe in the most recent big bang. You are just a temporary collection of carbon that lives on a mass of matter we call the earth. That you are capable of asking the question is just an amazing coincidence of evolution. Energy and matter must be a natural state for universes as is life in the particular circumstances of our planet. Please ask a question for further clarification rather than giving thumbs down.

If the universe is infinite and never ceasing to grow, ever expanding, then what is it expanding in to ? What space already exists for it to expand in to ? And what lies beyond that space ?

Just when a vaguely sensible intellectual discussion was materialising like a neutrino in the morning light, I dumped a charmless pile of strange quarks into the forum!

The answer isn't 'why'. Why is irrelevant. What you really want to ask is 'HOW'.

I think, therefore I am. And therefore, the Universe has to exist to support me. At least, I think it does.

Honestly, have you not progressed in your thinking beyond the level of year 2 at primary school?

Why worry about a question that can never be answered? Why not just enjoy the fact that it does and we spend all too brief a time here?

Why come on here criticising a thread when you could be enjoying yourself? Who are you to decide if people are wasting their time anyway?
