Before the 'Big Bang'

While having dinner with a group of scholars, most of whom were scientists, Ravi Zacharias asked them a couple of questions related to the scientific beginnings of the universe.

"If the Big Bang were indeed where it all began , may I ask what preceded the Big Bang?" Their answer, which I had anticipated, was that the universe was shrunk down to a singularity.

I pursued, "But isn't it correct that a singularity as defined by science is a point at which all the laws of physics break down?"

"That is correct," was the answer.

"Then, technically, your starting point is not scientific either."

There was silence, and their expressions betrayed the scurrying mental searches for an escape hatch.
