One day, I was reading this dusty old book.

It's called the Bible.

I'm having difficulty getting past the first line.

Genesis 1:1
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Doesn't go into any details.

  • Is this the religious big bang?

    Just like the big bang, it was not big and there was no one to hear it anyway. No one cared.

    This act of creating this earth and heavens requires a massive amount of fusion
    to create all these atoms that make up our little flat earth.

  • Where did God find all this mass of stuff?

    Obviously, outside the heavens and the earth.

  • Where was God before the beginning?

    What lies outside the heavens and the earth?

  • If he was an omnipotent god, he could create omnipotent clones of himself and more pesky universes.

  • How long had he been there?

  • Was he all alone?

    Not if he cloned himself.

  • How do we know God is a man?

  • Who created God?

  • Who created his creator?

  • How far away was God when he created his ant farm?
    He had to protect himself from the energy caused by fusion.

It should have been written as:

Genesis 1:1
Once upon a time, God created the heavens and the earth.
