The big bang theory is just weird to me.

Extrapolated into the past, these observations show that the universe has expanded from a state in which all the matter and energy in the universe was at an immense temperature and density. Physicists do not widely agree on what happened before this, although general relativity predicts a gravitational singularity (for reporting on some of the more notable speculation on this issue, see cosmogony).
The term Big Bang is used both in a narrow sense to refer to a point in time when the observed expansion of the universe (Hubble's law) began — calculated to be 13.7 billion (1.37 × 1010) years ago (±2%) — and in a more general sense to refer to the prevailing cosmological paradigm explaining the origin and expansion of the universe, as well as the composition of primordial matter through nucleosynthesis as predicted by the Alpher-Bethe-Gamow theory.[1]
I'm not totally convinced. If the whole Universe came from that hot and dense state of matter, which was there at the beginning of time, then where did that extremely hot and dense state of all the matter in the Universe come from? I sort of believe in the Big Bang, actually, but I think the only way it could have occured would have been because of a Higher Being or a god of some sort. It's impossible that the little ball of energy and matter was just there until it created the Universe. It must have a source.
