Life is stronger than death. Good is stronger than evil. Love is stronger than hate. Truth is stronger than lies.
The darkness that poses a real threat to mankind, after all, is the fact that he can see and investigate tangible material things, but cannot see where the world is going or whence it comes, where our own life is going, what is good and what is evil.That does, indeed, seem to be the challenge of the era. Notice, though, that 'something can come from nothing' only if we dramatically change the meaning of the word "nothing." "Nothing" now means something, something like 'the potential for the creation of a universe.' And that, as it happens, is nothing other than the orthodox position: the universe came from that which had the potential to create it.
What kind of thing is that? To say that it is "nothing" is merely to give it a new name: but it is the same thing, whatever name you call it by.
