In this clip, scientist Professor Richard Dawkins explains that the age of the universe is believed to be 14 billion years and no one knows exactly what happened at the Big Bang. He explains that physicists believe that there is no such thing as 'before' this event, precluding the existence of God. He then explains that physicists believe the laws of physics and time itself came into being after the Big Bang.
