So if there was an entity in the beginning, it goes without question that it has no beginning? So your idea that God has no beginning come from the bible---but you think some of the bible's meaning is locked away----just not this part.
LOL, I just unlocked it for you, but that's just the very first step (and and easy one) in a myriad of locks.
How old do you believe the earth is?
The Torah speaks of the beginning of the natural world when it speaks about the earth, not the globe we know today, but the receptacle of the Mind of God. In fact in the very next verse it states the earth as "formless" and describes it as a vast ocean with no life in it. This is a very Eastern philosophy as they believe water to be the constant in the natural world. It always acts the same, it runs downhill no matter what you do. How could the earth have water and NOT be a globe? To a scientist this will be a contradiction, but that's because they are not approaching the text correctly. They need to think quantum physics, not conventional physics and it will make more sense at least it did with me. Back in the day such an explanation would not be needed because the populace lacked information, but that's not the case with the people of today. But there is no such thing as too much information. However, with more information comes more complexity. In Genesis 1:2 we have the next step which is an expanse of water which is actually part of the encryption process rather than an empirical testimony of the beginning of the earth. We know that wasn't the case. So how old is the earth? However old science tells us and it's shouldn't be corrilated with Genesis 1:2 because the text is not speaking about the actual earth. As we know there are many earths and if/when we go to those we will find the same story being told by them too. The Torah's Earth = the natural world, I cannot stress this enough.
