Chemistry

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.

(John 1:1-2) ESV

The Holy Trinity can be written as a chemical formula. As blasphemous as this may seem, at first, there’s a major problem with it: IT WORKS as a plan for the particle physics of the universe.

Ex Nihilo vs. Ex Abyssi

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

(Genesis 1:1-2) ESV

The writer of Hebrews describes the creation of the universe as thermodynamically balanced. Apparently God created the universe from things which are invisible. We (that’s me and the Holy spirit) propose atoms and molecules.

The Deep

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

(Genesis 1:1-2) ESV

The deep existed in the beginning, before God began to create. This means that creation isn’t ex nihilo, from nothing, it’s ex abyssi, from the deep. This is so obvious that everyone has missed it completely.

Nonunicornism

Should I remain silent while you babble on? When you mock God, shouldn’t someone make you ashamed?

(Job 11:3) NLT

Atheist science trolls (ASTs) will pull random stuff out of thin air in their eagerness to mock we people of faith, but there are some recognizable patterns. It would seem that AST masters of yesteryear made up some responses which have past into AST lore because a lot of people use the same ones. A lot of them involve unicorns.

LEGO Ex Abyssi

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

( John 1:14 ) KJV

But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

( 1 Corinthians 8:6 ) KJV

Given the role that the Son, the Word of God, plays as the source and originator of creation, we may understand the Greek words legó and logos to mean:
The systematic assembly of components into a predictable sequence.

Hō·w·lā·lə·tî

The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

(Proverbs 8:22-31) KJV

God the Son was begotten in an act of conception. It’s part of the meaning of the Greek phrase the foundation of the world. The same event is rendered from Hebrew as childbirth, where we get the word howl.

What is Creation?

Bulldozer in a marble quarry

Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

(Isaiah 46:10) KJV

What is creation the verb, not creation the noun? The act of creation. Maybe we should say creating? Where does creating start? From nothing? Or is it the transformation of one form into another?
