So science draws no conclusions from before the big bang. Of course scientist enjoy unknows and will do their best to find out what they can. So who knows maybe one day.
In the meantime science knows precisely nothing about events before the big bang.
Secondly the higgs field did not exist before the big bang, or at least no one knows if it did and there is no need for it to have existed before the big bang. It was created along with the big bang. Or at least that's the scientific consensus at this time.
I don't see how not knowing about before the big bang either refutes or confirms philosophy being dead or not

There is a innate logic in the unfolding of the big bang event as if logic where its unchanging designer and mover. So the state of nothing that existed prior to the big bang could be describe as logic without action. If so the bang event has a logical conscious above light speed designer and mover.
Was Being the same then as now, or radically different? Did nothingness prevail before the bang?

You question pertains to Existence, not to Being. Being can coincide with Nothingness but Existence cannot: there are states of existence, e.g., our material Universe, and then there is nonexistence, i.e., Nothingness, Being may coincide with both.
