    We don't know it. We just "believe" it. Just as we can only believe in the concept of eternity.

    I like to think of it more like something so hard and compact that it would take a firecracker to get the bowl movement started.

    Well like it or not, scientists have already figured out that at the beginning there was nothing (Big Bang theory).

    Nahmanides (a Jewish rabbi) said this 800 years ago when describing right after the origin of the universe.

    "At the briefest instant following creation all the matter of the universe was concentrated in a very small place, no larger than a grain of mustard. The matter at this time was so thin, so intangible, that it did not have real substance. It did have, however, a potential to gain substance and form and to become tangible matter. From the initial concentration of this intangible substance in its minute location, the substance expanded, expanding the universe as it did so. As the expansion progressed, a change in the substance occurred. This initially thin noncorporeal substance took on the tangible aspects of matter as we know it. From this initial act of creation, from this ethereally thin pseudosubstance, everything that has existed, or will ever exist, was, is, and will be formed."
