A quotation from Chesterton-- always a good thing.

Nobody can imagine how nothing could turn into something. Nobody can get an inch nearer by explaining how something could turn into something else. It is really far more logical to start by saying 'In the beginning God created heaven and earth', even it you only mean 'In the beginning some unthinkable power began some unthinkable process.' For God is by its nature a name of mystery, and nobody ever supposed that man could imagine how a world was created any more than he could create one.

from The Everlasting Man
