In the beginning …

by Neil Rickert


Genesis 1:1 – In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

That seems to provide the basis for science, the study of the heaven (cosmology, physics) and the earth (geology, physics, chemistry, biology), the study of material things.

John 1:1 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

And that seems to provide for philosophy and theology, the study of abstract propositions and logic, the study of immaterial things, the basis for dualism.

One Comment to “In the beginning …”

  1. In exactly the same way, I suppose, that the Great Green Arkleseizure’s sneeze gives the basis for otorhinolaryngology.
