Out of Nothing, But How?
Good Morning Joes and Janes;
I have been working 12 hour days this week and finding it hard to get a devotional post written. Today I am sharing a post from The God Debates entitled A Cause. I hope you find it stimulating. This article looks at the existence of the Universe from an Atheistic viewpoint and then a Christian response. The beginning is below and clicking on ‘Read the rest here:’ will take you to the rest of the story.
Hope you have a great day

An Atheist’s Proposition:
It is simple: a universe can, and most importantly will, create itself out of nothing; ex nihilo; end of statement. This fact is undisputable; and to question it would be to question arguably the greatest physicists of our time, Stephen Hawking: go on – I dare you.
So what of a cause? The answer: a notable absence of any God, be it Allah, Zeus or He himself. We have been told that a law such as gravity can create an entire universe with its billions of galaxies each with billions of stars from what is literally emptiness. We have a why, and we can even answer how it was created: all it took was a bit of probability to swing our way, and our reality became reality. The God of the Gaps argument is no longer even necessary, in my opinion there are no gaps.
