I understand that physics works based on very elegantly and intuitively developed mathematical theory, and we are still in the process of figuring out a complete, unified theory: but I have noticed a lot of people who study or work on physics that adamantly refuse to even consider the question of what could have happened before the Big Bang, i.e., what could be the real origin of the universe.
Their first answer usually is "Big Bang created space-time, it's idiotic to even consider the notion "before the Big Bang". While this is completely true, it feels like just brushing the real question under the rug. At the end of the day, is the role of physics not to figure out the ultimate truth, and what could be the reason for people trashing this question completely? It feels like the modern day equivalent of saying "The Earth is the center of the universe, and it is silly to even consider something else could be the center".
