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.

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.
