    If only compressing matter to subatomic levels wouldn't make black holes... we'd be living in a galaxy where all matter is always present. but then the amount of energy in the universe would increase, which in reality can only happen if matter is destroyed since E= mc squared.

    Well your question is bit wrong star don't burn they release there energy due the process of fusion .Fusion and combustion/burning are far apart from each other from your question i assume that you are talking about the burning we see in our daily life where oxygen is required to complete the process the process of burning is also known as redox reaction where a hydrogen rich fuel is reduced by an oxidant to produce heat this is the process of burning while in stars they don't burn they fuse atoms to release energy so burning is just a off topic while talking about fusion and for the fact why oxygen fuse soo quickly well that's the think i can't help you up with right now because i am not that good at atomic physics

    I'm not sure, but I think that what we call burning is actually just oxygen changing forms, but it's still oxygen, and can still be changed more.

    Do you think that someone made your house, even though you have never seen them? The house is the evidence of the builder. Same with this universe. It had a beginning, therefore it had to have a cause. And that cause, is God. This universe could not have created itself. So do you think God cares about how we live? If He has given us morality so that we have set up a system of law with courts and judges, how much more would the supreme ruler of the universe demand justice? Have you ever lied, stolen the smallest thing or thought a rude thought? If these were the things God would judge us by, would He find us innocent or guilty? The answer? Guilty. Sinning against an infinite authority figure brings infinite punishment. Hell. So how can we stop going to hell? Does doing good deeds take away our sins? If I get a speeding ticket in the morning, then do 5 good things, should the judge let me go free? No, the fine has to be paid. What about asking for forgiveness? If a criminal stands before a judge and says, I'm really sorry... Should the judge let him go free? No, because that would be a bad judge. If he forgave every criminal because he loved them, that would not be doing justice. Justice has to be paid. God is merciful, but not so at the expense of justice. The only way we can go to heaven is if someone pays our hell punishment for us. Jesus lived a perfect sinless life and then took all of God's wrath for our sins upon Himself on the cross. Since Jesus paid 100% of our sins, there is none left for us to pay. Our punishment has been paid and we get off free. Justice has been paid and Gods mercy has been upheld. Our good deeds don't save us. Nor do they contribute anything to our salvation. Jesus paid it all. Just acknowledge your sins, and accept this gift of Jesus Christ to go to heaven. To learn more about God. Read the Bible. It's available free online. Read the gospel of John first.

    @scarmack :D Whatever created the matter has to be eternal. Otherwise that cause too would be subject to the second law of thermodynamics, would have had a beginning and therefore needed a cause too. All space, matter and energy of this universe (and other claimed universes) is subject to this. So that rules out everything as being the first cause. As there would just be nothingness (pure nothingness). On the other hand, God is God over time, space and matter. In the beginning (time), God created the heavens (space) and the earth (matter).

    @Ozone I'd say more along the lines of being impossible. If you saw a spaceship in space, how sure would you be that someone built it? The universe is more far more complex than a spaceship. Someone created this universe. That is the only scientific explanation. To say the universe got here by nothing happening to nothing, is sticking your head in the sand and saying 'please, please....'. But it will always be scientifically impossible. The creator sets the laws of this universe. We have all done wrong. How can we be made right with that creator? By His mercy alone. He made up for our shortfall by sending Jesus Christ who took our punishment for our wrongs on the cross. We can only merely accept that gift to go to heaven.
