Why do we Catholics see this as such a silly idea? For example, people can claim that the earth and humans were created from Big Bang and through Evolution and we can fire back and ask, “Who put the gases in place to create the Big Bang? God. Who created evolution? God”, and we always ask why people stop at their theories and why they dont go one step back and ask who invented such things.
But, we too, appear to be guilty of not going one step back. We do not ask who put God there. We just accept that God always was, which seems to conform to the idea that “something came from nothing.”
