My prior post, “In the Beginning…“, may lead some to quip, “Well, where did God come from?”
If there is the assumption that God’s existence is like that of our own, then a creation view has the same limitation as an evolution view: something had to come from nothing.
However, in considering the creation account in the book of Genesis, we see that God made the heavens (space), lights—the sun, moon, and stars (space), and the sky (space). Clearly, God made space.
Physicists tell us that space and time exist on a continuum. That is, space and time are co-existent. Ergo, if God created space, then he also created time.
If God created time and space, then he has to exist outside of the space-time continuum; he is timeless and therefore eternal, with no origin and no beginning.
To accept creation, one must have faith that God always existed, whereas to accept evolution, one must accept that something came from nothing.
For me, the former perspective is less of a stretch.
