Recently I was reading a blog and ran into an interesting statement
“In the beginning, there was nothing, and there was something.”
The blog goes on to talk about the binary construct or what we know as the world of computers. Three basic concepts are the foundation of all that a computer can do:
The most basic logic functions are the NOT, AND and OR gates.
IF something is FALSE, then it is NOT TRUE.
IF some OR another value is TRUE, the result is TRUE.
IF some AND another value is TRUE, the result is TRUE.
I immediately reflected back on a course in the Apologetics and remember the lecturer speaking the idea that SOMETHING cannot come from NOTHING. Somewhere between these two discussions is a rift. In that simple statement “In the Beginning” we immediately are drawn to think of the BEGINNING and the unimaginable be it “The Almighty” – “The Creator” – “God”. For the apologetic his argument is that something, our universe cannot emerge from the nothingness of nothing. There was something before call it the creator. Like the Big Bang what was before it? a previous universe that had collapsed into a Black hole.
We then think about Binary logic. It is built on the idea there is either nothing A Zero or there is Something A One.
There is something inherently missing from this
