This question is for Benn Tannenbaum. If I correctly understood your answer to my first question "Is matter eternal?" to mean that matter is not eternal, then I have clarified my question above. My definition of eternal is "having always existed in some form, with no beginning and no end(not created)". In the "why" of your previous answer to me you state that "we believe the universe was once pure energy.....". I am not looking for a "we believe" answer. I am looking for all of the logical and scientific reasons/explanations why matter/energy is not eternal. For example: if I wanted to try to prove to someone that the "theory" of evolution(macro, not micro)is false, one of my main arguments would be the "Law" of Biogenesis.
