The Programming Model of Reality
How God Can Speak the Worlds into Being
Excerpt from the book:
"Most ideas that propose how God created the universe begin with the basic entities, such as light, energy, and matter, already created. The creation of the basic entities themselves (“out of nothing” as the Hebrew word “bara” in Genesis 1:1 indicates) is left as a matter of faith: that God can do it, even if we have no idea how. This remains a good, solid foundation and will always be true: that God is able to do more than we know; that His limitless resources and abilities are accepted by us through our trust of His Word, through faith which He gives us (Ephesians 2:8-10).
However, the last half-century has offered us a new window into the realm of “creating things out of nothing” (Ex Nihilo), by using thoughts expressed as command words. So this model runs to the opposite extreme. Rather than avoiding the questions of “how matter and energy were created”, this model embraces them. It starts its proposals for “how God created” at the earliest point: from the existence of God alone. It then proposes how God could have created all things, even the basic entities, simply by using words.

How we view our own reality.
