    Every "thing" requires a source. All we see and experience did not spring serendipitously from nothing.

    And then again, perhaps God could be described as a perfect "no thing." For such a being, if He exists, He would have to be non-matter, non-energy, non-space, non-time. So, perhaps everything did spring from "no thing" (God), but likely not by pure "whim," but with steady intent.

    And what is God? The Nazarene carpenter said, "ye are gods," but most don't understand what that means. He also said, "I and my father are one." And aren't we all? First chapter of Genesis also tells us this when it says that we were created in God's image (baby gods). Have we forgotten so much, living in these fragile, Homo sapiens shells? Could God be the combined intent of all us "children?" Could we humans be the fallen angels who ate the forbidden fruit so long ago? Could ego be the real Satan, source of all evil?

    Perhaps that's why Yehoshua seemed to despise the Pharisees, despite their careful observance of "the law." He might despise most modern Christians for the same reason. They can't see the forest for the trees... their ego is getting in the way. They are working too hard to be "righteous," when all they're really doing is bolstering ego. In other words, they are following the master of this world. What a cold shower that must be to them.

    Miracles? Seen them and done them. Out-of-body excursions? Done that, too. Only a perfect "nothing" could do such things.

    On a quiet day without distractions, don't you feel a sleepy nothing deep inside? Listen. That may just be the source of creation.

    lonestar77 actually came up with the right answer but chose to ignore it.  As he says, if there is a god, it would have to be a non-entity made of non-matter who then created something out of nothing.

    The only other viable explanation is that the universe is eternal and has always been, which means some currently held theories are wrong, as well as many of the interpretations of observational data.  And along with these errors goes the belief that our observational evidence has "proved" our theories, as well as the mathematical models that are not reality-based but only descriptive by axiomatic applications.

    So, which is more likely, that a non-entitiy with non-physical capabilities created something from nothing or humans once again screwed up in the interpretations of their observations, meaning   their so-called facts are wrong and the universe has simply always been.

    Keep in mind, the very reason for the geocentric model was that it fit our senses, our interpretation of observations - we felt the earth beneath our feet unmoving, and we watched the sun pass across the sky.

    Now, we just as eagerly accept redshift and cosmic background radiation as the new stable earth and the new moving sun.

    Now, I'm not asking you to accept my word for it.  Use your own intelligence.  Figure out for yourself what is reasonable.  Or, you can listen to the guy who claims to be the Benny Hinn of rush-hour traffic.
