LDS theology states that gods are created, implying that matter must be eternal. However, secular cosmologists agree that matter was created at the Big Bang:

"One of the major hypotheses on which modern cosmology is based is that the Universe originated in an explosion called the Big Bang, in which all energy (and matter) that exists today was created.“ Eric S Rowland, UC Santa Cruz

“A large body of astrophysical observations now clearly points to a beginning for our universe about 15 billion years ago... There is, in fact, no evidence that any of the particles of matter with which we are now familiar existed before this great event.” Louis J. Clavelli, Ph.D., Professor of Physics, University of Alabama
