In a previous post, I explained how modern cosmology predicts a
space-time manifold (within the context of a "big-bang" theory)
defined only for the "open set" t>0. There is no "before".
I emphasized that this concept is taught in junior high school.
I am NOT an astrophysicist, and would thus welcome an elucidation
by one (though I doubt any would waste their time). If you are
not referring to a big-bang theory, what is the significance of

Exactly what is God? Maybe you should stick with observable quantities,
and intelligent use of physics.
