Quote: Elizabeth Elliott “How much faith does it take to believe in God? Less, I venture to say-a great deal less-than to believe in the Unconscious generating the Conscious, Mindlessness creating Mind, Nothing giving birth to Something.”
My comment in support of statement: It is much easier to believe in an All Being Eternal Creator than a “nothing”. Most people would image “nothing” as space, at least. But “nothing” is not even space – even a vacuum is not “nothing.” Tell me, how can that be? An eternal God is possible – “Nothing” is not. Everything mind can conceive demands time and space.
Can someone tell me where my thinking is going wrong? If the “big bang” created the world out of nothing, what was “nothing?”
