Ok Guys, I appologize ahead of time, because this is going to seem like a strange thread. Anyway, I'm not religious, but I just had a very long talk tonight, with an extremely catholic friend of mine. You can imagine that things got intense, because I am on one end of the spectrum (athiest) and she is on the other (hard-core catholic). When you've got your beliefs at stake, people can get offended easily. Anyway, the above isn't the real point of this post. I got to thinking about deep things - how did life first get started, how did all the matter originally come here, is it possible for there to never be a 'starting point' for time, etc. Deep stuff. Things that make you want to stop thinking about them, because it's hard to imagine answers. Well, it's in my personality to be very inquisitive. So, anyone know of any websites or books that touch on these questions? Thanks. Also, feel free to discuss some of the above topics, but don't touch too deeply into religion (general chat of it is fine) because I know how those threads can turn into flame wars, with many people left offended.
