“Atheists do not claim that nothing created everything.”

Many atheists refuse to admit they believe the entire universe came into being from nothing, because it is a scientific impossibility and they recognize how silly it sounds. If everything didn’t come from nothing, their alternative is to say that creation (nature) created itself. However, a thing cannot make itself. To do so would mean that it had to pre-exist before it existed, and therefore it didn’t create itself because it was already in existence. (For where the universe came from, see Isa. 34:4  and Isa. 45:18 comments.) Here is a list of some who have admitted to believing that nothing created everything:

1.      “It is now becoming clear that everything can—and probably did—come from nothing.” —Robert A. J. Matthews, physicist, Ashton University, England

2.      “Space and time both started at the Big Bang and therefore there was nothing before it.” —Cornell University’s “Ask an Astronomer”

3.      “Some physicists believe our universe was created by colliding with another, but Kaku [a theoretical physicist at City University of New York] says it also may have sprung from nothing…” —Scienceline.org

4.      “Even if we don’t have a precise idea of exactly what took place at the beginning, we can at least see that the origin of the universe from nothing need not be unlawful or unnatural or unscientific.” —Paul Davies, physicist, Arizona State University

5.      “Assuming the universe came from nothing, it is empty to begin with…Only by the constant action of an agent outside the universe, such as God, could a state of nothingness be maintained. The fact that we have something is just what we would expect if there is no God.” —Victor J. Stenger, Prof. Physics, University of Hawaii; author of God: The Failed Hypothesis

6.      “Few people are aware of the fact that many modern physicists claim that things—perhaps even the entire universe—can indeed arise from nothing via natural processes.” —Mark I. Vuletic, Creation Ex Nihilo—Without God

7.      “To understand these facts we have to turn to science. Where did they all come from, and how did they get so darned outrageous? Well, it all started with nothing.” —”Fifty Outrageous Animal Facts,” Animal Planet

8.      “To the average person it might seem obvious that nothing can happen in nothing. But to a quantum physicist, nothing is, in fact, something.” —Discover Magazine “Physics & Math/Cosmology”

9.      “It is rather fantastic to realize that the laws of physics can describe how everything was created in a random quantum fluctuation out of nothing, and how over the course of 15 billion years, matter could organize in such complex ways that we have human beings sitting here, talking, doing things intentionally.” —Alan Harvey Guth, theoretical physicist and cosmologist, Discover Magazine

10.            “The fact that life evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved out of literally nothing is a fact so staggering that I would be mad to attempt words to do it justice.” —Richard Dawkins, The Ancestor’s Tale

    This is the perfect example of Ray’s dishonesty, or complete lack of ability to understand simple concepts.

    There are Christians who disapprove of inter-racial relationships.

    Would it therefore be fair for me to say that Christians disapprove of inter-racial relationships? Or that the definition of Christian is one who disapproves of inter-racial relationships?

    All Ray does is a word search on ‘nothing’ and then cut and pastes and claims “Ah-ha! See Atheists believe this!”

    Atheists apparently includes Animal Planet, and Christians. Yes Ray cuts and pastes Christians here because of course in his rush to cut and paste he doesn’t bother to actually check the religious beliefs of the person he’s cut and pasting. That’s not as important as cut and pasting a quote with nothing in the title. Nor does he care what the people mean by nothing.

    And again this is all completely pointless given that I have personally confirmed with Ray that he believes nothing created God who created everything from nothing, so his obsession with this is perplexing.

  2. John says:

    Things of this world do not matter in the end times. The only thing that matters is are you saved? Will you go to heaven or hell. What you believe is irrelevant in the end times. It is are you saved or not. will you go to hell or heaven. the earth will be no more, god will come back and create a new earth so we will have a place to live for eternity So what is your choice, do nothing and go to hell. Is that the place you want to spend eternity????

  3. Brian says:

    John is right below! He sent his SON for the sacrifice of sin in every man. It just takes you to ask him to come into your life today, you will notice people will start to hate you and stray away from you. Your soul cannot connect with people of Sin, trust me, you will not miss the sin once you are saved. You will have power to deny it eventually over time while the Holy Spirit works with you over time. It’s better to die with/in Jesus, than to die and without even trying once in your life and you realize you were wrong. Sorry, but hell is reserved for non-believers.

  5. Then explain Dawkins comment. He said himself that the universe came from nothing.

    The reality is, is that if you get rid of a designer and you get rid of the universe being eternal, what else is left but nothing??
