I don't get how the big bang is possible!

I heard the big bang was the first thing but then people say there was something BEFORE the big bang so what is that.
People say this is how its possible by writing all this math stuff but I don't understand that!

It's not surprising you have problems understanding that theory. And I don't mean this as as insult - I and most other people don't understand it either. The Big Bang and the developement of the universe after it is still kind of plausible, but the question where it happened and where it came from (since there was nothing there before) is so weird and outside our thought patterns that we can't really understand it. You say "before" - but even time didn't exist "before" the Big Bang, so how can there be "before"? You see what I mean? May be one day we find out more about how it really happened, and we understand better then.
