The theory that tries to explain our origin by totally natural means is completely bankrupt. The only other way is if the universe itself is eternal, and even that demands a power higher than ourselves. If you keep going backwards in time you have to eventually find a start. Before this start there must have been "nothing". Nothing is a concept that is impossible to even comprehend. But it would have to be there. Atheists will almost always go to some kind of theory that the universe was inverted...But even that must have a beginning. R.C. Sproul says it best...
"If something, anything, exists then something or someone exists necessarily. In other words, if something exists, then something else must have the power of existence within itself."To me that means that even if only one solitary atom existed, and I mean one solitary atom, then something MUST have the power to create that atom. It can not create itself and nothing existed before it to spawn that atom. Ex Nihilo Nihil Fit...Out of nothing, nothing comes. That's a fact. You cannot get something from nothing without a cause. No effect without a cause. Now I suppose that I will be answering the usual next question, Where did God come from? That will be another post at another time.
Of course, from this point you do not automatically get Jehovah, the God of the Bible...But in a later issue I will explain why I believe that Judeo-Christian God is the one true God.
I couldn't possibly relay all the reasons why I believe in a higher power in this daily post..But the above is definitely a compelling reason and it certainly makes me wonder how anyone could think that we came from nothing....Which of course is an impossibility. Chance is not a power, it is a word that describes mathematical possibility.
