Actually we don't know that. At a singularity time slows to a halt. What happened "before" the singularity is unknown, (or if that even makes any sense). Time is not separate from space (Relativity .. in this universe anyway), so to posit infinite time, one has to also posit infinite space BEFORE time existed, (which is meaningless).
There is not a shred of evidence for anything "supernatural".

Interesting.

There is evidence for the supernatural if you use God communion meditation techniques with spiritually focused diets. IDK, it works over on this end.

Nope. It'all 100 % totally natural. Your brain can only speak to you in term you recognize. I can prove to you what you are experiencing has nothing to do with a deity, if you agree to meditate in a MRI or PET scan, and exactly the same thing is reported by people who do not report it as contact with the supernatural.

As I'm sure you are well aware, one does not need to know something in order to believe it (take, for example, Young Earth Creationists). Now, please answer my question.

Don't really understand your definition of 'supernatural.' What constitutes the addition of 'super' to the word?

There was no time before the big bang. Try again.

A force ascribed to a force beyond scientific observation or laws of nature.

So, then, expanding upon your astute definition.....A force ascribed to a force ascribed to a force beyond scientific observation or laws of nature, would the be super-super natural? Ie. the creator of the creator of the creation event? Shocking ..oh my gawd, gawd.

Science: Yes, all matter can come from nothing, and we have mathematics that can show how this is possible.

Theist: Something from nothing?! That makes no sense. Gawd created everything..from nothing..and left evidence to the contrary, just to make the believers stronger in their faith. Checkmate, atheists, makes total sense. We *know* this.

The thing is you're all wrong, about everything.

What is science if words have no meaning?
