A Theory of First Cause

See to it that no one makes a prey of you by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ.

(Colossians 2:8) RSV

First cause isn’t the same as the Big Bang. The Big Bang, or more accurately we should say nucleosynthesis, is an effect, not a cause. Popular Science (SciPop) promotes speculation about a possible first cause.

SciPop may claim to have a variety of competing theories about first cause but in order to be scientific, theories have to be based on hypotheses, and hypotheses have to be predictive and testable. As such, there are no hypotheses of first cause. By contrast our theory is based on a series of predictive testable hypotheses and we affectionately refer to it as going off the deep end.

We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.

Matty’s Razor

What is Creation?

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

(Genesis 1:1-2) KJV

Fortunately the first cause of the universe may be deduced from the Bible but there’s a little nuance to discern, for instance: what does the word create really mean? Broadly speaking it means to shape. The word doesn’t have a meaning which forces us to impute the thermodynamic impossibility of making something from nothing.

Create, purge: בֹּרִית – barar

  • to shape, create
    1. to separate Eze. 20:38; hence, to select, choose out.
    2. to purge, purify, pure, chaste.
    3. to examine, prove.
  • Niph. to purify oneself, pure, morally.
  • Pi. to purify, Da. 11:35
  • Hiph.
    1. to cleanse, clear, as corn.
    2. to polish, furbish a sword.
  • Hithpa. to be purified, Da. 12:10; to show oneself pure, morally.

Davidson Analytical Chaldee and Hebrew Lexicon page CXVIII

This is our working definition of the word creation.

Creation is the supernatural cause of the universe, a sequentially more complex ordering of a pre-existent body of water called “the deep” which obeys all physical laws including the first law of thermodynamics which states that energy can be transformed from one form to another, but can be neither made to appear from nothing nor be destroyed. The Bible clearly states that God became the universe, the Word became flesh, through the person of Jesus Christ. (Ex Abyssi).

There is no statement in scripture which says that God created the universe from nothing (Ex Nihilo).

– Creation, definition

If the universe was created from the deep, and this involved nucleosynthesis, then where did the deep come from? This is first cause. First cause gives us the Holy Trinity.

Faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.

Alpha and Omega

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

(Revelation 1:8) KJV

First cause wasn’t from nothing. There was never, ever nothing. It begins with elemental spirits, ancient astral beings, who inhabited the universe before anything was created: Alpha and Omega.

First Cause and Effect

  • IF Alpha
    • AND Omega
  • THEN Alpha and Omega


  1. Call upon the name of Jesus Christ,
    • believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
  2. confess your sin.

God is a Spirit

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

(John 4:24) KJV

God is a spirit which is translated from Hebrew or Greek words which mean breath or wind. Breath and wind are vapors, vapors are gasses, and therefore the elemental spirits which inhabited the universe before creation must be gaseous elements. Sorry to be so clinically technical but that’s the beauty of Hypothesis 22. The first elemental particle is the proton, Hydrogen. Since our context involves a body of water, H2O, then the other elemental particle has to be Oxygen. It’s deduction. When our premise is correct then we reach a logically certain conclusion.

The Logic of First Cause

  • IF God the Father (H+)
    • AND God the Holy Spirit (O2-)
  • THEN begat God the Son (OH)
    • AND IF God the Son was God (OH)
    • AND was with God (+ H+)
  • THEREFORE first cause is the origin of the deep (OH + H+ = H2O).

The reason for creation is the manifestation of sentient life with free will.

Holy Formula Batman!

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.

(John 1:1-2) KJV

Now we can superimpose particle physics onto scripture and write this statement about the initial state of the universe as a series of chemical formulas.

The Holy Trinity, formulaic

In the beginning was the Wordand the Word was with Godand the Word was God
ΩOHΩOH +H+ = H2OH+ + ΩO2- = ΩOH
– John 1:1 as a chemical formula.

The purpose of creation is to bring about the permanent physical separation of light from darkness, day from night, good from evil.

The Logic of Gender

And He answered and said to them,“Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?

(Matthew 19:4-5) NKJV

God refers to himself as male, Alpha, the Father. Jesus Christ, the begotten, is the Son. Simple deduction gives the gender of the Holy Spirit, Omega, to be female. This means that gender predates creation. Gender is the essence of cause and effect. IF male AND female THEN offspring. It’s the basic pattern for all creation, an expression of the Holy Trinity.

First cause gives us the origin of gender but it’s the first cause and effect, and so it’s also the foundation of logic and reason: a series of statements which are connected by cause and effect. This is the origin of one of the ways in which we refer to God the Son: the Word.

Logos: Λόγος – a Word

  • lógos from /légō, “speaking to a conclusion
    • a word, being the expression of a thought; a saying. /lógos (“word”) is preeminently used of Christ (Jn 1:1), expressing the thoughts of the Father through the Spirit.
  • sharing a message (discourse, “communication-speech”).
  • a broad term meaning “reasoning expressed by words
    • properly, a collecting, collection and that, as well of those things which are put together in thought, as of those which, having been thought i. e. gathered together in the mind, are expressed in words. Accordingly, a twofold use of the term is to be distinguished: one which relates to speaking, and one which relates to thinking.
  • reason, the mental faculty of thinking, meditating, reasoning, calculating, etc.:
    • of the divine mind, pervading and noting all things by its proper force, Hebrews 4:12.

We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.

Matty’s Razor

The Holy Trinity

For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.

(1 John 5:7) NKJV

The Word was in the beginning with God because the Word was an effect of God existing. The cause was first cause: the conception of Alpha with Omega to beget Alpha and Omega. Here’s a table summarizing the many ways that the Holy Trinity is expressed through pattern and process in creation.

God isn’t Nothing

Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

(Isaiah 43:10) KJV

If God the Father is an elemental spirit: Hydrogen, and God the Holy Spirit is an elemental spirit: omega Oxygen, and they have always been but at some point conceived to beget God the Son as the deep (from whom all things were made) then at no time has there ever been nothing. First cause isn’t the appearance of something from nothing. Ex nihilo is false doctrine. Get over it.
