In the spirit of this list, one might instead phrase the question as:

Why is there everything instead of nothing?

As soon as we have that there is everything, then we have that some aspects
of everything will mold themselves into observable universes.

It is unsatisfying though true to observe that there of course cannot be
a case in which the question itself can be asked, and there simultaneously
be nothing in that universe.

I'm with the last respondent though in thinking that the right answer is
that there is BOTH nothing and everything, but that the nothing is
inherently unobservable by curious questioners like ourselves.
