Discovery Channel Curiosity "Did God Create The Universe" In 3 Parts Here

I am sure this can raise a good, healthy debate here.

    Hasn't anyone watched this series?
    It's the first episode of the Discovery 'Curiosity' Series where Stephen Hawking unfolds his personal, compelling vision of the biggest question of all: Who or what created the universe in which we live? The groundbreaking series of cutting-edge CG combined with Hawking's witty, distinctive and incisive worldview is a must watch.

    Now, we take the journey a step further, as physics and cosmology become tools to answer questions that philosophers have struggled with for thousands of years.

    In effect, he says the universe was more like a very small and very dense black hole, and because of the big bang, the universe created itself.
    And the argument that since there was no 'Time' before the big bang, there could not exist a creator who created it makes sense too.

    But still, there must have been a tipping point, when the big bang actually happened.. Right? i.e, there is a black hole, and it suddenly bursts. Why does it burst?
    What 'caused' the big bang?

    Why does it burst?
    What 'caused' the big bang?
    Exactly the questions that I have too.
    I don't know why Mr. Hawking wants to jump to this conclusion. The theory that everything is created from nothing is proved scientifically, but when we use the term 'created' questions like why and by whom are bound to arise.

    My another doubt. Universe was a black hole.Okay
    Now, where does this black hole or universe situates. For something to converge or expand or explode, there must be a space beyond it, a space where the universe is situated. Like our milky-way is inside the universe, the whole universe must be inside something.
    *just my thoughts*

    And, doesn't this have an expiration and manufacturing date? Or is it the steady state theory that wins?
