EVOLUTIONIST'S CREED OF
(With doctrinal comments)
By Faith, we know that:
In the beginning . . .
(A1- Although "Nothologically"(1) incorrect,
because that would indicate there was a start, and if
a start, then there would, of course, have to be
"something" to initiate that start, we have to,
nevertheless, start somewhere and the beginning is always a good
There was Nothing; . . .
(B1- This is a foundational, self-evident truth in
And Nothing became Something, by
(C1- We don’t know how this happened, and we
don’t need to know. Please note that all the laws of physics had to come from the same "nothing" at the same time
as "something" which "chanced" into existence, since, technically and Nothologically
speaking, there was "Nothing" before
"something" - "Nothing" means
"Nothing.") ((C2- For those moderate and liberal
evolutionists who’s thoughts and beliefs have also evolved
from "Nothing," along with the universe, and who now
believe that "something" may have "always"
existed, you may adjust this "Creed of Faith" to fit
this evolved "Faith" from nowhere.))
And Something became Something More,
by more chance...
(D1- Even though there was "Nothing" that could
possibly make this happen, since "Nothing" existed
prior to "Something," some radical/fringe believers
wonder if it is possible that the very fact of
"Nothing" actually "Existing" may give rise
to higher Nothological thinking - though not too high - on
exactly what "Nothing" really is, which would suggest
that "Nothing" might have been "Something"
from the very beginning(A) and confuse many who have this Faith
in the "Nothing" we hold so dearly.)D2-
(("Something" apparently had all the right influences
from "Nothing" from the very beginning(A), but this is
beyond even our greatest "Nothologists."))
And Something More gradually and progressively
chanced into Complex Something, to
include the vast universe, and biological life itself, including
Humanity . . .
(E1- There was nothing for "Something" and
"Something More" to copy or be shaped by since
"Nothing" existed before "Something," yet. .
. "Something More" found itself becoming "Complex
Something" despite there being "Nothing" other
than the original "Something" to make it do so. All
this happened by "chance," and through the original
"Something" that couldn’t possibly be greater
than that "Something" that existed at that time, or
now.) ((E2- Since "Nothing" existed prior to
"Something" existing, there was "Nothing"
that could exist that would have had any impact or influence on
the newly "chanced" "Something," and
"Nothing" so complex and intelligent as "Complex
Something" . . .that is, Humanity, existed until recently, so we
therefore know that "Nothing" is even greater than we
could ever imagine and worthy of our worship and praise.))
Complex Something (i.e. Humanity) finally
chanced to understand the Ultimate answer - the
ONLY answer possible or believable . . . That we eventually
brought ourselves into existence . . .
(F1- Because "Nothing" existed before
"Something," and "Nothing" greater than
"Complex Something," i.e. Humanity, could exist,
"Complex Something," i.e. Humanity, is the ultimate
"Something" that could possibly come from
"Nothing" - because there WAS "Nothing" else
that existed, otherwise "Nothing" couldn't BE
"Nothing" from which "Something" could
come.) ((F2- Since "Something" couldn't
possibly know where it was going, especially since
"Nothing" existed before "Something" existed,
the fact that WE EVEN EXIST, despite the scientific data we see,
and in the face of all logic, reason and universal entropy,
requires our strongest Faith, and moves us ever onward to
continue to prove the original existence of "Nothing,"
despite our own existence. Note: For those who's Faith supports the
existence of "Something" as always existing, just
replace "Nothing" with "Something" and the
fullest Nothological substance and meaning is
We drive ahead as followers of Nothing and
Nothology . . .
(G1- though "Nothology" is a totally irrelevant
pursuit, since "Why" we exist is meaningless, we are
driven by "Nothing" to pursue this and countless other
lofty endeavors. Due to the "chanced," vastly complex
nature of our minds and bodies, and our ability to even think and
consider such issues and pursue such concepts, we are compelled
by "Nothing" to take over where mere "chance"
leaves us, and attempt to move, purposely, in an ever-learning
& improving direction, for no ultimate reason at
Nothing deserves our praise and thanks for what
is, and for what must yet surely come, given
Nothing’s achievements so far. Therefore, we
express and proclaim this belief in Nothing. For to
do otherwise would be to deny our very existence!

"Nothing," and how "Complex Something" came
into existence from "Nothing," for no reason or
purpose! Jeffrey T. Maehr
