What the hell are you talking about? The Big Bang happened for a reason OR the Big Bang happened for no reason.
" A chain of "why" or "how" questions eventually comes to a end or they do not, and there is nothing illogical about either possibility."
" Well, it would be good if you explain how such a statement agrees with your previous statement, quoted above. In my view, they contradict with each other.
What the hell are you talking about? Only 2 things can happen to a chain of "what is the reason for this?" questions, the chain comes to a end OR the chain does not come to a end. If it doesn't come to a end then everything in the chain happened for a reason, if it does come to a end then something happened for no reason. Come on now this isn't rocket science.
" I thought that the Big Bang theory implies that the Universe is not eternal, that is, there was the time zero when everything has started."
Maybe, maybe not. Most think the Big Bang existed but there is debate if there was anything before that; that controversy is at the very frontiers of science thus although many may be certain about the answer nobody knows; at least not yet.
