Time and space, as we experience them, came into being with the emergence and subsequent expansion of what we term "The Singularity" which was predicate to what we term the "Big Bang". Time and space, in effect, are the same thing, "Spacetime
"; the concept of one is indivorceable from the other, they are concommitant, codependent, coequal. Within our sphere of reference, conjecture pertaining to anything apart from, other than, prior to the spacetime we experience is meaningless.
It would appear some folks just can't grasp or come to grips with the reality of that, committing themselves not to seeking knowlege and developing understanding but rather, perforce, to the embrace of meaninglessness. That fatuous excercize calls for the invention of conventions as opposed to the formulation of postulates, theories, and laws based on the observation, analysis, and understanding of phenomena, bringing about the entirely speculative, wholly human construct we call "Theology" - an entertainment best described as "the study of that for which there is no discernable evidence".
