From an infinitesimal point—which scientists call a singularity—the entire universe and time itself exploded into being. And science can’t account for it.
Yet the very first verse in the Bible explains: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). As theologians have classically put it, “God created everything ex nihilo”—meaning “out of nothing.”
Science is catching up with Scripture. Jastrow, who was not a Christian, famously remarked, “For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”
