The "Something From Nothing" View

Often, when Christians such as Ray Comfort bring up the point that atheists believe something came from nothing, they are told that this is simply not the case. Well, here is proof positive that many do in fact hold to this belief. The following video contains direct quotes from leading atheists on the matter:

Here's a brief synopsis of my view on the subject: I believe that something came from Someone, namely God. Genesis 1:1 records, "In the beginning GOD created the heavens and the earth." Is it any wonder that people try to downplay this (remove God from the picture) by saying it all happened by chance from... nothing? Now, I am aware that many atheists will not find the idea of God as a satisfactory explanation for everything we see around us, so I have a few questions for them:

1) If everything we see today came from nothing, how did everything get here?
2) Some say that this "nothingness" is the Big Bang, so where did the Big Bang come from?
3) And where did the energy come from to initate the Big Bang?
4) Where did the matter come from?
5) And where did the time come from? If it really took millions of years, we would expect to be able to go back in time and see everything line up perfectly with that timeline in the beginning. However, what we see is that millions of years messes things up (for example, the moon would be too close to the earth, causing huge tides; that's just ONE of many examples).

Nearly every scientist agrees that there must be time, matter, and energy in order for life to exist. Evolution has many problems addressing this issue. So here is my proposal:

"In the beginning [TIME], God created [ENERGY] the heavens and the earth [MATTER]."

It seems to me that God knew that people would question His creative power, so He stuck this verse in there to make it perfectly clear that He is the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe. Something does NOT come from nothing!


  1. Hi Miss Szy, glad to see you're still going strong!

    I've always felt that it takes far more faith to believe that the entire Universe came from nothing at all than to believe it was created by some sort of Force. Of course we know Who that Source is!

  2. Hi Skeppy, It's good to hear from you!

    Yes, I agree; it does takes FAR more faith to believe that something came from nothing. What amazes me most of all is that many skeptics will claim that Christians have blind faith while they put their own faith in evolution and the "something from nothing" belief that comes with it. Talk about blind faith! Personally, I don't have enough faith to believe that!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts; it's always appreciated!

    God bless,
    Miss S.

    P.S. I think I like "Miss Szy"... it's cool! :)
