How nothing became everything

Listening to the more strident members of the current batch of atheist fundamentalists one might easily get the impression that they have a monopoly on intellect, claiming as they do that the whole mystery and wonder of the Cosmos can be explained simply by material phenomena. But, as C.S. Lewis said: ‘Atheism turns out to be too simple.’ Indeed, to my way of thinking, too simple to be credible. Atheism has been described as ‘the belief that there was nothing, and nothing happened to nothing, and then nothing inexplicably exploded for no reason creating everything; and then a bunch of everything wonderfully rearranged itself for no reason whatsoever into self-replicating bits, which then turned into amoeba and eventually ended up as us.’
It all makes perfect sense, doesn’t it!
