Of all the scientific ideas, this is probably the one most harmful to traditional Christian and Jewish theism, though not to some early Jews such as Philo of Alexandria (and I am broadly sympathetic to his idea of God generating creation, or the Logos, as a creative principle eternally in a single act, since it solves the puzzle of a transcendent being acting in a point in time):
God is continuously ordering matter by his thought. His thinking was not anterior to his creating and there never was a time when he did not create, the Ideas themselves having been with him from the beginning. For God’s will is not posterior to him, but is always with him, for natural motions never give out. Thus ever thinking he creates, and furnishes to sensible things the principle of their existence, so that both should exist together: the ever-creating Divine Mind and the sense-perceptible things to which beginning of being is given ( Prov. 1.7).
So could biblical language of an absolute cosmic beginning be mere accommodation?
