a name of mystery...............................

Nobody can imagine how nothing could turn into something.  Nobody can get an inch nearer to it 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 if 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 imaging how a world was created any more than he could create one.  But evolution really is mistake for explanation.  It has the fatal quality of leaving on many minds the impression that they do understand it and everything else;..."
-G. K. Chesterton,   The Everlasting Man
