What happend before the Big Bang?

I ran into a rather interesting blog post from Phil Plait, who runs the Bad Astronomy site. He has a nice post on a theory called Loop Quantum Gravity, apparently this may be able to tell us what happened before the Big Bang. He has a couple paragraphs towards the end that have some pointed remarks about creationism. Well worth a read.
In an earlier post of his, he has this video embedded - it has some nice arguments against creationism.
