The big bang theory makes no sense to me. Why do they say the universe began with no cause?

    The UNIVERSE  does not care if you understand ..

     you are muddled,,big bang = the hugest explosion on record,millions of degrees temp F,almost simultaneous with the properties of time/space expanding bubble,,tiny particles ejected in swirling doublebubbletoiling roiling and boiling clouds,happened about 13 & some billion years ago,in expansion the vast heat  shed  and lost,resulting in matter formation elements gases,planets,down to  most space have a temp a couple degrees above 293 degrees kelvin,( absolute zero),said infrared residue was detected by mssrs penzias and wilson at cal tech,,laboring on behalf of western bell whose phone lines in long distance wires had a peculiar buzzing static everywhere,this was the last echo of the big bang.

    who/what gave the big push to the big bang? the elements themselves

    ?,where said elements cofer among each other to set rules for behavior?,,purdy smart of them lil critters a self regulating mass of elements  & matter? not likely,,more likely some/one/thing acted upon them,a some.one.thing with vast creative intelligence,that is far more likely.

    During a short enough period of time, cause and effect no longer make sense because of quantum factors. This applies to the Universe when it was that young.

    "They" don't say the universe began with no cause.  They say it is unknown what caused the big bang to happen, and with current technology and physics models it is impossible to probe anything from before the big bang.  The physics equations break down at the instant of the big bang and can only go back to the Planck time (ie. one Planck frame of time after the instant of the big bang).  So until more is discovered and understood about quantum theory and astrophysics, the cause of the big bang will remain unknown.

    Because that's what the theory appears to say.  The fact that you don't understand it doesn't mean it isn't true.  That's your own problem.

    Science is all about what we can observe and measure.  A number of others have pointed out that the Big Bang Theory does not explain how the singularity came to be.  You do bring up an interesting question, but scientists can only speculate how the singularity came to be.  There is nothing to observe or measure before the big bang.

    The big bang theory does not say how the universe began. It says how it has evolved and expanded since the first second. A quantum gravity theory might tell us how it began without a cause. It will redefine what time itself is.

    Because nodody knows what happened back then
