"Creating space by drawing lines."
That had been mulling over in the back of my mind ever since I had heard it.
I wonder what exactly that is supposed to mean. We can define space by drawing lines on the space already created. The only One who can create line-less space would be God. (The God of the Bible; the God of Issac, Abraham, and Jacob, in case you were wondering about that in this design-your-own-Jesus type of culture.) Before the creation of the world, what would "nothingness" actually be, much less look like? The "universe" was shapeless and empty, and the Spirit [God] hovered over the waters. What do I know of empty? Water is made up of elements though, right? Did God already create the elements, then make other things out of the elements, then He Himself breathed life into mankind with His own, uncreated breath of Life? And, using and creating the elements, did He also create space, as in definable, measurable, shapes and lines?
(Just so you know, the lyric line I used was taken from Philmont's great song, "tear down".)
(I may have been trodding dangerously close to blatant political incorrectness when I stated that God alone created everything, but I am pretty sure I've careened hopelessly off the edge with that statement. ;)
