Once upon a time there was Nothing. Nothing did not live in a far-away land, did not perform noble acts of bravery, and did not pursue a princess of humble origins with an outstanding gift for singing. In fact, Nothing quite simply, did nothing. Nothing had no dreams or desires, no imagination, no residence or place to be found, no companionship, and no concerns or jealousy for having nothing. Nothing did not even know that it had nothing since there had never been something to have!
And this is where the story takes a most unbelievable turn. Even though Nothing had no materials to work with, no imagination to dream with, and no intelligence to design with, Nothing made something from nothing! And not just any old something, but an amazing something! Matter, time, and energy governed by complex laws of physics that regulate and hold the Universe together. Galaxies full of stars and planets still immeasurable in size.
Yet the beauty and glory of it all would have been wasted had Nothing not somehow created it’s most magnificent something – life! How Nothing took nothing to make something is puzzling in itself, but how Nothing made something that could appreciate the something that Nothing made simply boggles the mind. Yet here we are, placed upon a single planet that has all of the conditions just right for life to develop and thrive, as if we were designed for the purpose of being here, appreciating and adoring the something that was made from nothing.
Of course, Nothing has never created something since. Even the something that Nothing created cannot create something from nothing. Yet in this one example – unexplainable, unbelievable, unrepeatable example – something was created by Nothing.
