## Quotes

“In addition, the author of the Arizona Atheist blog asked Vilenkin if his theorem with Guth and Borde proves that the universe had a beginning, and Vilenkin replied, "If someone asks me whether or not the theorem I proved with Borde and Guth implies that the universe had a beginning, I'd say the short answer is 'yes.' If you're prepared to go into the subtleties, then the answer is "No, but..." So there are ways around having a beginning, but then you're forced to have something almost as special as a beginning."”
