The recent book by Physicist Lawrence Krauss explains how the Universe can be here when there was nothing to start with. This concept is counter-intuitive or as Krauss says "Our brain is not equipped to understand" such a concept. It is one of the major reasons given by theists as to why there needs to be a God.
When Richard Dawkins was in Australia he had a public conversation with Lawrence Krauss at the Australian National University in Canberra. This is their summary of "Something from Nothing" during their hour and a half long discussion.
