Shelby, really? Did you just use the word science when talking about god talking in a vacum? You know I loves you, but really?
Ummm, yeah. Something "wrong" with that, dear NVL (the greatest of love and peace to you... and how YOU doin'?)...
We aren't creating the air. It's a by-product of the air we took in.
Yes, I get that. I didn't mean "air" as in oxygen, though, which I thought I explained (maybe not fully). I was thinking in terms of, say, the "gas" (air) that, for example, causes the sun to burn. Or the "thrust" that "pushes" asteroids/meteorites through space... or the "wind" left in their wakes...
Without the pre-existng air, where did HIS breath come from?
From in HIM, dear NVL, He being the SOURCE of it.
My apologies, dear one, and I get it that my "drivel" here may sound "stupid," but I just don't buy that everything came out of absolutely nothing... other than to say that "nothing" was actually "something." Somewhere in the universe "something" happened. Call it a "Big Bang," I don't care. But "something" had to BE there in order for "something" to even occur... to result in the "something" that is physical universe. Even science says nothing... from nothing... leaves nothing. And if there was nothing... "something" couldn't have come out of "it."
So, while we're on the subject, I must say that I find the theory that the universe came out of nothing, that there was nothing, then something occured... to bring "everything" into existence... matter... created from absolutely nothing... and then the "space" that was created as a result... as... ummmm... incomprehensible... as some find believing there was a creator. I mean, here you've got nothing... going along... along... along... with nothing happening... nothing present to MAKE anything happen... no gases... no matter... no energy source (or surge)... nothing. And then... "something" happens. Seriously? In spite of all of that... nothing?
Okay, I get it: the theory is that "something" went "bang"... or combusted... in all of that nothing. But MY rational thinking says... WHAT could have GONE "bang"... or combusted... if there was NOTHING... TO go "bang"... or combust? SOMETHING... even if it was a tiny spec of dust... had to be there. Yet, only one speck wouldn't have been enough... because there was nothing for it to collide WITH... to GO "bang." Nothing... to destabilize it. At least, that's what my very limited but very rational mind has to conclude.
But, wait... even if one theorized, well, maybe "it" became unstable on its own... as it... ummmm... changed, evolved... what have you... MY rational mind would say, well, okay, but you still have SOMETHING... tiny spec of dust though it may be.
But even that creates (no pun intended) problems for me... in that I'm next supposed to believe that all of this... came out of that tiny spec... that whatever "force" was created by that tiny spec's "bang"... resulted in the entire physical universe... not to mention the earth... not to mention you and I... coming into existence. AND... being able to procreate. But that creates (again, no pun intended) another problem for ME in that all of this was "in" that tiny spec in the first place... had to be... because, remember, there was nothing other than that spec. I mean, even when earthling man attempts to recreate the "event"... there is something: the atom smasher, if not the atom that was smashed... and the atom that smashed into it. The petrie dish... if not the germ that is in it... and the "thing"... including an oxygen or other molecule (which is something)... that was introduced into the environment. The atom does not smash itself; it needs "something": another atom and a catapault. The germ does not evolve into another thing, but simply multiplies into more of itself.
Yet, the theory is that what came out of that, well, spec, if you will... is expanding. Okay, I have not problem into that. But into what? Apparently... more nothing. The theory is that there is nothing outside of the physical universe, that it is expanding from within itself. I would counter, however, in my ignorance of these things... and I do not mean that sarcastically at all, for I am ignorant of such things... that the physical universe is not expanding, at all, but that what is INSIDE the physical universe... the dark expanse that we know as "space"... what is IN that space... is simply following the law of physics that says when a mighty wind occurs... whatever is in its path moves... away... from the source of the wind.
And that is the "breath" that I was speaking of, dear NVL. That all of this indeed came "out" of something... "something" even bigger than it... not only in size (which I understand our very small human brains can't quite comprehend - we're still marvelling at how large the physical universe is)... but in capabilities. Which capabilties allow that "something" to also be so SMALL... that we can contain it... or Him... within us. Because we are a part of "it".
And I believe that "something" to be something as simple... as Light. Which can exist outside of us (which it does)... as well as in us (if we allow it).
Again, I am merely a piece of flesh... with no more wisdom or understanding of these things than the next "regular" folk. But, as I stated, the scientific explanation for how the physical world came into existence is just as implausible to me... as the Most Holy One of Israel, JAH of Armies, being the Source of it all is to others.
I bid you peace.
A slave of Christ, the True Light...
