(Of course the universe has no beginning. As Hegel pointed out, nothing 
cannot become something. That's Jeffrey Hegel, my 9th grade chemistry 
teacher not the German philosopher.)

The universe may have existed forever, according to a new model that 
applies quantum correction terms to complement Einstein's theory of 
general relativity. The model may also account for dark matter and dark 
energy, resolving multiple problems at once.
The widely accepted age of the universe, as estimated by general 
relativity, is 13.8 billion years. In the beginning, everything in 
existence is thought to have occupied a single infinitely dense point, 
or singularity. Only after this point began to expand in a "Big Bang" 
did the universe officially begin.
