How many explanations are there for the existence of our universe?

Philosophical naturalism—the worldview undergirding evolutionism—can provide only three explanations for the existence of our universe.

First, the universe is merely an illusion. This notion carries little weight in an age of scientific enlightenment.

Second, the universe sprang from nothing. This proposition not only flies in the face of the laws of cause and effect and of energy conservation, but it is self-evidently absurd. As has been well said, “Nothing comes from nothing, nothing ever could.” Or, to put it another way, there simply are no free lunches.

Third, the universe eternally existed. The law of entropy, which predicts that a universe that has eternally existed would have died an “eternity ago” of heat loss, devastates this hypothesis.

There is, however, one other possibility. It is found in the first chapter of the first book of the Bible: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1 nkjv). In an age of empirical science, nothing could be more certain, clear, or correct (Romans 1:20).
