Ah, very good! As a Christian, my position is the dead are dead. Why else would we be given the hope of resurrection?

If matter is made of atoms...and atoms are electrons orbiting a nucleus.
Why is it then two objects touch, the electrons don't collapse upon their respective nuclei and all matter collapses in a giant chain reaction...?

The theory that the universe was contained in a point that expanded is dimensionally limited thinking. Consider what a sphere crossing a two dimensional plane would look like then add more dimensions.
I am probably in a philosophical state of mind. My Mother in Law passed on 9/1. She was 89. She was a wonderful woman. I consider myself blessed to have spent time with her before her passing. She was ready. She woke every morning over her last three months asking "why am I still here?"
What makes me ponder? When my time is here, why can't I decide to move on? Mind you, I am 64 and want many years to live life to the fullest. However, when I am reduced to existing, I want to go on my own terms.
Sorry to be a bummer. It was difficult seeing a wonderful person in that state.

When you buy a new style of clothes, why are there still old clothes in your closet?
The “humans evolved from apes” is a fallacy. Starting there is never going to get you the right answer.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
― Samuel Adams

-It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

According to our current understanding of physics, the answer to this question is "nothing."
Not "nothing" in the sense of empty space without anything in it - "nothing" in the sense that there's no "outside the universe" for anything to be in in the first place.
For this to make any sense at all, you have to understand that when physicists talk about the universe "expanding," they don't really mean space is sitting still and all the stars and stuff are shooting across it getting farther apart, they mean space itself is getting bigger.
If you picture a piece of the universe as a bunch of dots (stars) on a piece of graph paper (space), the universe expanding means that the piece of paper is getting stretched out, and the squares on the graph paper are getting bigger, not that the dots are moving across the paper (although of course, that happens too).
The other part necessary for it to make any sense at all is that, according to our current understanding, the universe doesn't have an "edge" or an "end." There are basically two possibilities, either the universe is infinite (it goes on forever, so there's no end) or it's finite, but kind of loops back on itself (so if you travel far enough in one direction, you end up back where you started).
The universe looping back on itself is impossible to visualise in 3D space, but you can do it easily by taking away a dimension. Make "the universe" be the surface of a ball. The surface doesn't have an end, and if you travel straight across the surface for one entire circumference, you end up back where you started.
In my experience yes, most certainly. If there is a God at all.
Seems more likely we're all alone out here as far as deities go.

Here is an answer. Now I need to come up with a question.
