Created Out Of Nothing

Article#: 593

Thousands of years ago GOD SAID that He created the earth and the inhabitants thereof out of that which is invisible.

Romans, Chapter 1, Verses 19-20:

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shown it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

And again the word of God states in Hebrews, Chapter 11, Verse 3:

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

God created everything out of that which is invisible.

MAN SAID the Bible is just an old book written by fallible men and not to be given a lot of credibility. The idea that everything had been made out of that which is invisible is simply ridiculous.

Now THE RECORD.

Science is now coming to the conclusion that all things are actually created out of the invisible, which they call "nothing." In an article in Scientific American titled "The Inflationary Universe," the following statement was written:

From a historical point of view probably the most revolutionary aspect of the inflationary model is the notion that all matter and energy in the observable universe may have emerged from almost nothing.

The inflationary model of the universe provides a possible mechanism by which the observed universe could have evolved from an infinitesimal region. It is then tempting to go one step further and speculate that the entire universe evolved from literally nothing.

The following comment was found in the New Scientist in an article by Harold Pathoff, titled "Everything for Nothing:"

And now to the biggest question of all, where did the Universe come from? Or, in modern terminology, what started the big bang? Could quantum fluctuations of empty space have something to do with this as well? Edward Tyron of the City University of New York thought so in 1973 when he proposed that our Universe may have originated as a fluctuation of the vacuum on a large scale, as "simply one of those things which happen from time to time." This idea was later refined and updated within the context of inflationary cosmology by Alexander Vilenkin of Tufts University, who proposed that the universe is created by quantum tunneling from literally nothing into the something we call the Universe.

Edward Tyron, a professor of physics, wrote the following in New Scientist volume 101:

In 1973, I proposed that our Universe had been created spontaneously from nothing (ex nihilo), as a result of established principles of physics. This proposal variously struck people as preposterous, enchanting, or both.

So my proposal of creation ex nihilo was accompanied by a prediction that our Universe is finite and hence "closed."

So I conjectured that our Universe had its physical origin as a quantum fluctuation of some pre-existing true vacuum, or state of nothingness.

GOD SAID all things have been created by that which is invisible, MAN SAID ridiculous.

Now you have THE RECORD.
