I don't understand why the universe could be here just because it's here. Doesn't it seem like there should be some type of higher intelligence to create the universe? It just doesn't seem right that all of space would be here just because it is.

You could ask the same question about a myriad of natural phenomena. Why does it rain? Why are there nine planets? Why does the wind blow?

The personal answer is "Why not?" Why shouldn't there be a universe? Why shouldn't it rain? If a rain cloud is the product of a random colliding of moist air and low pressure, why can't the universe be the product of a random quantum fluctuation that caused the production of space/time? As humans we see things created as a result of human cause and expect everything else in nature to also have an intelligent cause. However, we seem to forget how random the universe really is. Not everything has a why, only a how.
