Everything from Nothing? No Way. Remember What G. K. Chesterton Said
How do you get everything from nothing?
The short answer is that you can’t, regardless of how many million years you try. Contrary to what some atheists like Stephen Hawking say, there is no way the entire universe could make itself and everything in it.
Quantum fluctuations cannot salvage bad thinking.
It might be good to remember what Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936) said about this atheistic dilemma:
“It is absurd for the Evolutionist to complain that it is unthinkable for an admittedly unthinkable God to make everything out of nothing, and then pretend that it is more thinkable that nothing should turn itself into everything."
Chesterton was a famous writer and Christian thinker who was not afraid to criticise Darwinian evolution and atheism.
While evolution is an ideology that has passed its shelf life, Chesterton’s thoughts are as fresh as they were two or three generations ago.
