From a scientific perspective, we can look as far back as the Big Bang and no further. And the end can also b ...[text shortened]... hich would be point B.
As God would say, I am the beginning and the end, the Alpha and Omega.
No, actually it doesn't make sense. In order for a "big bang" to happen something had to have existed in the first place. Not all astronomers agree that a "big bang" created it all.
And if there is such a thing as "God" where did he/she/it come from? How is it possible.
BTW, it's entirely possible that an explosion occurred that was massive beyond human compression, that the atoms in our bodies were a part of that, and it was NOT the genesis of the universe. Relative to the size of the universe that explosion may actually be microscopic. With current technology we can only see out so far.
