If matter can neither be created nor destroyed then where did it come from? The standard model of cosmology can't extrapolate further than a big bang singularity.  Even if some version of M-brane theory turns out to be correct and useful, and the big bang is the result of the intersection of many-dimensional membranes, that just pushes the question back to where did these branes come from.Also science is supposedly used to "question everything", but when somone points out the massive holes in physics they are seen as backward.

"Basically… out of all the ridiculous religion stories which are greatly, wonderfully ridiculous — the silliest one I’ve ever heard is, ‘Yeah… there’s this big giant universe and it’s expanding, it’s all gonna collapse on itself and we’re all just here just ‘cause… just ‘cause’. That, to me, is the most ridiculous explanation ever."-Trey Parker
