"NOTHING COMES FROM NOTHING, NOTHING EVER COULD"
Technical problems with Google indexing have made it desirable to re-post all of our material. I hope you will find interest in reflecting with me, on the history of the Church over the centuries and during the life of the Blog which began on 14th December 2009. This post first appeared on 18th May 2010.
|THE ANGELIC DOCTOR - SAINT THOMAS AQUINAS|
"The existence of God is not self-evident. But it is unreasonable, even stupid, not to believe in God, an eternal being that had no beginning and always existed. The alternative is that there was a time when there was absolutely nothing. But that makes no sense. St. Thomas Aquinas said, "if at one time nothing was in existence, it would have been impossible for anything to have begun to exist; and thus even now nothing would be in existence--which is absurd."
As Julie Andrews put it in The Sound of Music, "Nothing comes from nothing. Nothing ever could."
This extract from Charles E. Rice's Commencement Address at Christendom College reported on the Blog Ignatius Insight, says it all . Now the reader knows why I don't believe in "Atheists" - no-one is that foolish!
As usual St. Thomas Aquinas gets it right.
