The Big Bang The­o­ry of the ori­gin of the uni­verse seems to have been sim­ply accept­ed by both sci­en­tists and philoso­phers despite an endur­ing ques­tion: How can one accept as fact the effect of the Big Bang with­out ever address­ing its cause?” Fur­ther, the advent of life on this plan­et is assumed to have been the result of nat­ur­al forces, despite the lack of evi­dence of the leap from inan­i­mate mat­ter to liv­ing mat­ter, and the near-zero math­e­mat­i­cal prob­a­bil­i­ty of such a nat­ur­al event.

Against that back­drop, In the Begin­ning of the Begin­ning attempts to present alter­na­tive answers to these endur­ing mys­ter­ies from a per­spec­tive that most sci­en­tists and philoso­phers are not will­ing even to con­tem­plate — the idea that every­thing is the prod­uct of One benev­o­lent Cre­ator. The sources and the­o­ries quot­ed in this book are tra­di­tion­al­ly Jew­ish ones but are designed to be help­ful to all.
