In the beginning was the Void, and infinite darkness, plus infinite nothingness. Both the scientific and religious experts agree on this, correct? Scientists have the theory about the “Big Bang” which created everything out of nothingness. Religions all have a Creation Story, which pretty much aligns with the same idea; that the entire known universe and everyone here now came out of nothingness. The Bible talks about the 7 days of creation for example.
